NYE: a casual & dressy approach

By : haley 23 Comments

New Years Eve is only two days away you guys! I’ve come up with two outfit ideas to draw inspiration from. I’ve done a dressy and casual approach. It’s nice to have a trusty black and white dress that you can pull out of your closet in case of emergency. This one from Lulus.com, brings a little glam with the black lace front. Find a similar style: here. I added a cropped black fur coat from Modcloth, similar style here. I was cruising Urban Outfitters.com a few weeks back and spotted these tulip style metallic shorts and knew I had to have them. Find a similar pair: here, here and here. I wish I could take credit for these fabulous Schutz heels, but I borrowed them from the ever fabulous, Babe-Sicle. This holiday used to stressful for me in the wardrobe department. But planning ahead this year has definitely helped ease my anxiety. I haaaate going out on the day of an event in search of an outfit because I always end up setting from something subpar.  What’s going to be your New Year’s style approach?
