Rock New Year's Eve with These Trendy Looks!

Can you believe that we’re only days away from New Year’s Eve? Man did the year fly right by us! If you’re searching for some last-minute outfit inspiration, we’re here to help. We want to wrap up 2018 with style and by making a statement. On that note, we’re looking at all things sparkly! We love a good sequined skirt. Dresses, shorts, jumpers, you name it! If it’s sparkly, we like it. If sequins aren’t your jam, how about some velvet? Such a great style and perfect for the winter weather! If your plans are more casual, go for a fun backless top for a more understated yet still show stopping look. Cheers to putting a cap on 2018, we can’t wait to see all that 2019 has in store!

This piece from Lulu’s is the perfect addition to any closet because it’s trendy, timeless, and versatile. Whether you’re prepping for an interview, looking to revamp your office look into something a little more chic, or just want to dress up for a fun springtime brunch, we’ve got you covered!

KEEP IT CASUAL

This blazer is perfect for one of those early March mornings where it’s a little too chilly for a cute sleeveless top or dress, but you still want a pop of springtime glam. The nautical stripes are super on-trend, so make them the focal piece of your look by pairing it with a white top with minimal (but still fun!) details. We love this one from Express, especially paired with a medium wash ripped jean. The unexpected combo of the distressed denim with a put-together blazer makes for a striking daytime outfit! You could also make the look even more casual by rolling up the sleeves of your blazer, and pair it with some strappy sandals or neutral wedges. Add a dainty necklace to compliment the lower neck of the top and toss some beach waves in your hair to add some texture to your look.

We also really love the idea of adding a pop of color back into the blue and white look with a small cross body bag. Don’t shy away from red, either - we love this one from Nordstrom! Not only would it be the perfect statement piece to complete your look, but it’s the color of the summer, too!


DRESS IT UP

Love the last look, but can’t wear jeans to the office? There’s tons of other ways to style this adorable piece professionally! If you’d like to keep it easy and effortless, a white dress is the perfect go-to to pair with this blazer. Shift dresses are so in right now, and they’re perfect for office wear because they’re modest but still fashionable. This one from Lulu’s would be the perfect piece to let your fun new blazer be the focus of your look, and it’s easy to style with just a pair of nude pumps and some tights.

Another great option would be to play up the nautical look and feel of the blazer a little more by pairing it with a pair of navy pixie pants. Try different textured tops underneath for a twist, like a white satin blouse. Pull your hair back into a full, voluminous ponytail of curls and add a simple pair of nude heels or flats to keep it professional for an adorable office chic look!

Whether you have reservations for a fancy dinner or you’re grabbing a casual brunch this Valentine’s Day, there’s tons of trendy directions you can take your outfit in this year! Blush is super in right now, so add the tone into your look! Mix a classy white blouse up with an adorable pink peacoat and some light-wash boyfriend jeans. The distressed look is so on trend right now, but if you want to dress it up a little, opt for more classy accessories, like blush booties and some dainty rings. If you’ll be spending the night outside, add a knit scarf or beanie to stay warm and cozy!

Try out a red or pink satin top with the same distressed denim if you want to get a little bit more festive. Layer some simple necklaces for an elegant and classy touch against the denim, and style your hair with some tousled beach waves and a messy braid. The unexpected textures make for an original and charming look that’ll definitely impress.

If your date night plans involve something a little more elaborate, skip the plain dress and step out in something bolder. Slip on a little black dress with embroidered rose details, or pick up something with a flirty pattern, like pin-stripes or anything floral. A timeless pair of red heels and an oversized wrap coat will tie everything together effortlessly! Don’t be afraid to mix a little pop of red in with your pink, or vice versa. It’s a holiday after all, and the combo looks adorable! Make a bigger statement with your pink outfit with a bold red lip or red tassel earrings, or add an extra Valentine’s touch with a pink mani-pedi!

FOOD

New Year’s Eve is all about dancing around and having fun! Your should serve a variety of h'dourves so your guests can move and eat! Here are some amazing recipes to inspire you:


DRINKS

DINNERWARE

DECOR

There are so many options for your New Year’s Eve decor! Be fun and hand out 2018 themed glasses, hats, party blowers, etc. and create a photo booth! Or take a more classy approach and decorate with silver and gold orbs, garlands, and vases. 


OUTFIT

Every year we are obligated to go to an office holiday party, and every year we have difficulty deciding what to wear. This season, we’ve created a guide with inspiration to help you choose an appropriate and stylish outfit!


casual dress code

If your daily work attire is casual, you can expect a casual dress code for your office party! Pair jeans with a cute sweater or flannel shirt. Tuck a simple shirt into a fun colored or patterned skirt, or wear a stylish wool coat! Use bright colors and jewel tones to your advantage to make your casual clothes fashionable!


business casual & semi formal dress code

Business casual & semi formal attire ranges from pants to dresses. Pair cropped pants or formal joggers with a bright heel. Wear a flirty dress or skirt, or be bold and try out a jumpsuit! Add a little sparkle to a structured outfit for some holiday spirit!


formal dress code

A formal dress code is the green light to be as fancy as you desire! Where pants are not quite acceptable at a formal party, you can wear a fashionable jumpsuit! Find one that is tailored and monochrome. Skirts should be full, textured, or colorful, and dresses should be knee-length or longer. Since it is a holiday party, your dress should stand out, whether with appliques, color, or silhouette!
