We are so used to holidays filled with bright colors, shiny accessories, extra embellishments, glitter, etc. Nothing is too much during winter holiday season. However, while ugly sweater and Christmas tree decorations used as earrings are a great choice for a family Christmas party we all want to look at least a pinch better for a New Year celebration. How to look bright but different, festive but stylish, bold but classy for the night of New Year?
Just the right amount of bling!It’s a good idea to choose maximum one part of your look: accessories, shoes, dress, makeup or manicure to have a glitter, shiny embellishments or rhinestones on it. For example, if you have a sequin dress it supposed to be the only part of your look to be shiny. Everything else your makeup, manicure, shoes, clutch/purse can be bright and bold but shouldn’t have any bling on. This look will be stylish yet not flashy!
Cinderella shoes? The rule “higher heels longer dress” works here as well. 10 inch heeled pumps will be perfectly appropriate with midi or maxi length dress, skirt or pants. If you choose shorter length as above your knees length you can opt out for 2 inch kitten heel shoes or even flats if you want to wear really short skirt or dress. Following this rule will help you look stylish for any type of NYE party.
Do not overmakeup. Stylish holiday makeup is just a bit bolder and brighter than your regular going out makeup. You still want to look like yourself plus being in style means less is more. Make an accent to one of two facial parts: eyes or lips. Bright bold lips pair great with neutral eye makeup and opposite. If your eye shadow is bold wear neutral lip color.
Minimalism is in style. Use minimal accessories if your look is bright and shiny already. Bold rhinestone necklaces and earrings will only be appropriate with minimalistic black dress.
Nail it! NYE stylish manicure is monochromatic short nail. Try red if you want to make a statement. Otherwise, stick to nude or light pink nail color.
Hair me out!NYE hairstyles are stylish when it’s a simple blowout or soft curls left out or gathered in a low ponytail. You should use hair accessories only if you don’t wear any jewelry on your neck. It’s either or.
Remember, it is only if you want to look stylish and classy you have to follow above suggestions. Otherwise just do your thing and don't listen to what everyone has to say. Have great holidays!
