I don't know about you, but I usually find myself in one of two moods when it comes to NYE: beyond stoked in my little glitzy dress shimmying my way to the function -- or glancing at the clock to find it reading 11:58pm and I'm still in bed.
Granted, there are many moods in-between I've experienced as well: ready to take on the new year with the toss of a shot and the blow of a horn, excited to celebrate with friends without worrying about next morning's hangover, not too keen to celebrate but have committed to going out, and rushed into last-minute plans where spontaneity has allowed my closet to throw together an outfit for me.
Wherever you might fall on the mood scale for this upcoming New Year's Eve, we've got you covered with a look that resonates with all of them.
1. PREPARED (FOR THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND EVERYTHING INBETWEEN)
Whether you began 2017 with this intention or ended it with it, you are prepared to handle the new year with whatever it may throw at you. Like the years before it (and undoubtably the years to come) you're ready for your fair share of ugly and glamorous -- and you're choosing to start with the latter.
Your calling: Two piece suit, complimenting bralette, sleek stiletto and simple jewelry
New Year, same old story. This ain't your first rodeo and you know how to easily throw together a last minute fit that will still make you the coolest chick in the room.
All you need is: a faux fur jacket, slinky dress, a little bit of bling & a lot of shoe.
The bottom line is, you're just too damn busy to find an outfit that'll only last a couple of hours. Therefore, black (like always) is you're best friend. It's flattering, chic, and easy to deal with should/when you get champagne showered on.
It's as simple as: black jeans, jumpsuit, boots & a head turning shearling.
4. LAID BACK
With all the chaos of the years' final months, the last thing you're in the mood for is dressing up. But the diva in you won't pass up an opportunity...so the happy median? A laid back look with attention baked into the details.
Do it up with: a simple shaped top & trouser co-ord finished off with statement accessories.
It's your favorite time of year and you already have your look all planned out -- well, an idea of it anyway. Set it in stone with eclectic patterns, textural depth and loads of color.
Own it in: colorful textiles, layering & eclecticism.
