New Year’s Eve really puts on the pressure to come up with a look that sparkles with glamour, but there’s no rule that says you can’t rewrite the code and indulge in the comfort of classic jeans and a slinky black top as you welcome in the new year. The choice is strictly yours. A little imagination can transform your sexy NYE outfit into an item that can be worn throughout the rest of the year to weddings and cocktail parties.
Exchange strappy rhinestone studded heels for flat sandals and you can show off that satin slip dress at next summer’s garden party wedding. Wrap a statement coat over a bodycon little black dress to keep off the chill and then layer the same coat over jeans for an outstanding weekend look. Here are ideas to help you ring in a definite fashion statement throughout the holidays.
