Usher in the new year with metallics, embellishments, and velvet. I'm taking my party style up a notch with dramatic pieces that make a chic impression by day and a glamorous statement by night. Here's how to master YOUR perfect NYE look.
Metallic pleated skirts have dominated Instagram feeds this holiday season, and I am loving this silver midi version of the trendy essential. While some versions have a tendency to appear cheap, this gorgeous style from Express is spot on in every way. Even better, it feels just as luxurious as it looks!
A mixed medium top like this is perfect for a night out as it's different enough to ensure you stand out in a sea of black. I love how this crop top mixes velvet and mesh to give my outfit an uptown vibe.
These. Shoes. I immediately fell in love with these unique heels and I knew they'd be perfect for New Year's! The fact that they're simple black ankle-strap shoes that have a majorly embellished heel makes them extra special and completely glam.
No other bag could do the job of complimenting this look-at-me outfit better than my trusty black clutch. Simple, structured, and classic, a purse like this is your best option when donning such a striking ensemble.
Turning to my fanciest earrings, I used this crystal dangle pair to mimic the stones on my shoes. I love how I don't need much jewelry at all when I wear these sparklers.
Although it's not super clear in these pics, I'm wearing a berry matte lip here, which I love for winter. During the Christmas season I can't get enough of red, but this deep shade is so pretty for January through February. And as for my eyelids, a mix of silver and gray shadow can't be beat for NYE.
New Year's Eve is the BEST excuse to dress up. It's one of the only nights you can literally pull out ALL the stops and no one will bat an eyelash! So have a little fun with it and go for a bold look that'll turn heads. A shiny skirt like this will undoubtedly do the trick.
There's no question that if you want to wear some subtle sparkle, sporting this metallic skirt is an impressive way to do so. With its glittering threads and swishy, flapper-like hem, it looks like it came from an expensive luxury brand.

Who's ready for 2017? I'm SO looking forward to starting fresh with a new year, a new perspective, and a whole lot of new adventures to look forward to. This year I can't wait to explore even more of my NYC home and spend time making memories with friends. Cheers to a fabulous new year!
