Bling in the New Year
By Linda Miller | Published: December 27, 2012
New Year's Eve is just a ticktock away.
If you're still wondering what to wear on one of the best dress-up nights of the year, let us make a few suggestions: shine, sparkle, sequins.
Any one of those three S's on a dress, tank, scarf, pair of shoes or statement piece of jewelry will help you put an exclamation point on 2012 and start the New Year on a stylish note.
Whether you add a sprinkle or go all out, shine, sequins and sparkle can make you party-ready in an instant without too much stress or hassle.
“I once read a caption that said, ‘Everything is better with bling,'” said Angela Crawford, owner of Closet Moxie. “I immediately thought that is my life mantra. I think a little shine here, a little sparkle there, is eye-catching and intriguing. I love shine and shimmer all year-round, but there is not a better or more festive time to wear it than the holidays.”
And with so many options available, from jackets and jeans to tanks and shoes, there's no reason not to add a touch of shine or shimmer.
“You don't need to spend a lot of time to pull it off either,” she said.
For an informal party with friends, it's as easy as throwing on a pair of soft gold jeans and adding a cobalt blue sequin top, Crawford said. No need to stick with black, unless that's your preference. A pop of blue looks great with gold denim.
If you're going straight from work to a New Year's Eve party, look for pieces that you can wear to the office and then transition to evening, she said.
Crawford likes the look of a lame snakeskin dress with high-low hem and a pewter metallic blazer.
