Dress to Impress – New Year’s Celebration

[slideshow_deploy id=’405′]New Year’s is full of opportunities and possibilities as you transition from the lessons learned of the passing year to the endless potential of a new one.   The fashion of New Year’s Eve also has a wide array of possibilities as options on how you celebrate the night can go from a casual evening with friends to an elegant formal bash.   No matter how you choose to celebrate the New Year’s, you can always approach it as an opportunity to shine a little brighter on a special day and bring in the New Year’s with style!  I stopped by Chloe Dao to see what fashions can ensure you will be a shining star in your New Year’s celebrations.

A Formal Affair

For a lot of us, our social calendar is not filled with formals so when they do come up it is a great opportunity to shed our normal façade and really shine.  I think long dresses and formals go hand and hand but it does not have to be void of personality.  This dress adds all the sparkle I like to see for special occasions with a pattern that both speaks to the season and can work as a distraction for some areas we don’t want highlighted.

Upscale Revelry

Nothing says look at me like a real sense of confidence.  Whatever you best feature, find an outfit that highlights it so you feeling like a million bucks turn into a billion dollar look.  I am a legs girl myself so finding something short but class gives you a chance to feel confident about your assets while still preserving some mystery that adds complexity to a sophisticated night on the town.  A great dress like this gives several options on the level of sexy you choose for the night with some simple alterations to the waist and bust area while keep a fun and glamorous palate for New Years.

Dance Machine

Sometimes the only focus for New Year is the Turn Up.  If your focus this year is on pure fun then you want your outfit to be youthful and give the comfort needed to dance the night away.  Shorts are a great way to go.  They don’t have the access issues that come with short skirts, which is especially important when you are planning on a boogie night.  This look gives a business on the top, party on the bottom combo that screams dancing in the streets.

Put a fun spin on a traditional look for New Year's

Traditional Elegance

Being a little more conservative does not mean that you cannot still turn heads on New Year’s. Cut outs and sheer panels have been all the rave on the red carpet this year.  There is nothing like a surprise in your design to get people talking.  This lace cutout dress gives a chic look with a well-placed lace insert to turn up the heat and really showcase one’s shape.

Fun with Friends

Choosing a smaller gathering with the ones you love does not mean you have to look the same you would any other night.  Mixing up jeans with a dramatic shirt helps set your New Year’s celebration apart.  Best of all it is probably the piece you are most likely to wear again throughout the year so you are not making a big investment just for one night’s celebrations.  I adore this dramatic shirt as the lay of the fabric is very forgiving and you get to really showcase your back in the sheer design.  It can easily transition you from a nice dinner to a house party for a New Year’s you won’t forget.
