Seven Stars and Stripes
As much as I may be denying it, New Year's Eve lurks just around the corner. In just two short days, we'll be counting down, toasting and ringing in 2011. And, inevitably, every good fashionista wonders to herself, "What am I going to wear?"
Sequins steadfastly hold as a go-to for winter holiday celebrations but are especially prevalent on the 31st. But if you prefer an alternative that can not only help you stand out brighter than Times Sqaure but can also be appropriately worn several months into 2011, then check out these non-traditional alternatives, invoking fun, vibrance and cheer.
sass + bide Divided Corset Top
Why not add black tights and suede pumps to the leather shorts and corset above? You'll want a jacket, of course, but a simple black blazer will easily do the trick!
Sachin + Babi Sleeveless Dress with Metal Embellishments
This dress speaks for itself. Again, tights will be cute Friday night but come spring, you'll look adorable and bright as a daisy without them.
Sachin + Babi Blair Cardigan and James Perse Crisscross Draped Dress
A nude dress is stylish and understated. Pump up the edge with a bronze sequin cardi. Add sleek black boots for another element of tough girl chic.
Issa V Neck Dress
We see animal print every time we turn around but Issa has found a new way to use the classic neutrals on a party-worthy frock. Even with leggings during the day, you can hit lunch or an early afternoon party. Sheer tights add sass after dark.
Had I thought of this style notion earlier, I would have gone in the direction of the looks above. As it is, I'll be rocking sequins with the rest of the world. Nevertheless, the goal is to have fun and celebrate!
Cheers to New Years!
