Holiday Styling Tips: New Year’s Eve


Believe it or not, New Year’s Eve is just around the corner, so the time to start planning your look is NOW!!! Are going out or staying in? Either way, Alicia from Word of Alicia and I have some tips to help you keep your look on the casual side or go totally glam!

New Year’s Eve is the PERFECT time to up your everyday casual look with a lil sequin sparkle! And yes, you CAN be both casual and sparkly at the same time!


1. Keep It Casual

Keep your look casual with an oversized sweatshirt like the Desert Dream Camo Sweatshirt by mark. Both camo and oversized sweatshirts are HUGE right now and the super-cute, unconventional colors of the Desert Dream Camo Sweatshirt are perfect for your New Year’s Eve party!

Tip: I ordered down a size on the sweatshirt. My regular size felt a bit too oversized for me.

2. Add a lil Sparkle

Add a lil Holiday sparkle with a champagne sequin pencil skirt. Sequins are the perfect way to bring in the New Year! Who doesn’t want to be sparkling to start out the New Year?

3. Keep Accessories Simple

To keep from going over the top with the sparkle, keep your accessories simple with the Twice As Nice Necklace by mark. The delicate chains connecting to two Vs containing 44 genuine Swarovski crystals is just right for balancing out the sparkle.

4. Continue the Casual

Continue with the casual look by adding a pair of snake print flats. The flats keep your look casual while the snake print dresses up your look. Then, to keep your legs warm and pretty, add a pair of gray tights to coordinate with the gray in the sweatshirt.
