Thank you to one of my reders sending in a style question! So let’s not waste time for New Year’s Eve is right around the corner! Here is the question:
“I’ve been eyeing this dress and want to purchase it for new years, but I am not too sure how to wear it, my first guess is a nude shoe with gold metallic accessories which is the safe way to go, but I want to start 2012 totally different starting with my fashion sense. PLEASE offer any suggestions
Ok so this is the dress in question:
I love this dress because it has the sparkle you need to start the New Year off right and it is a blank canvas to add your own personal style to. Your suggested styling method would certainly work well for this look. However, there are tons of different ways you can rock this sequins number without going too far outside of your comfort zone. Here are a few ways I would style this dress to help you stand out from the crowd.
Girly Glam: This option is sure to make you the belle of the ball. Keep the look ultra girly with sparkle dress to accessories and finish with a super sexy pair of ankle strap sandals. For the hair I would keep the girly theme going and wear loose luxe curls to frame your face and top off the look.
Rocker Babe: You could have the ultimate Balmain moment with this option (example here). Create visual interest at the waist to add a bit of shape to your look. Add minimal accessories such as the studs that are shown so that you know over work the look. Then finish it off with a great stiletto ankle bootie. Your hair would look great flat ironed straight down to help pull everything together.
Trendy Chic: Channel your inner Sex in the City woman and complement your sequins dress with a hint of fashionable sophistication. Add a bold pop off-color with a super chic pair of colored pumps. Bring in another surprise element with a cute leopard clutch finished with a cute pair of earrings. For this option your hair should be in a very sleek style, either pull your hair up in a high bun or a classic pony (sort of like the signature Kim K pony).
I could go on and on with various options, but I hope these three give you some inspiration for your New Year’s Eve look. Thanks for letting me help you out!:)
