Footloose and fancy free, that will be the mantra for the outward bound “New Year’s Eve Extrovert”. Huddled on the dance floor of the hottest “it” spot, seated around a lavish table in a swanky restaurant, or hopping from bar to bar in a haze ushering in the New Year– bottom line, you will be out and about and ogled by many. Remember…the fashion police will be watching too! Here are some quick ideas for making a show-stopping impression.
The simple question here is whether you want to blend in or stand out. We all know that black evening attire is very forgiving and always appropriate, but a burst of color can also be extremely flattering and achieve seamless perfection while giving you a lift. A wonderful way to achieve this is to add a colorful fur coat or vest to your ensemble. Or, how about going all out with a fur trim gown? With the production and treatment processes being so advanced nowadays, it has opened up the flood gates for more designers to flex their creative muscles, using fur in a wide variety of ways and being daring and etremely artistic with it as well.
Ruffle Your Feathers
Feathers on garments create a whimsical, feminine and flirty look, all while miraculously remaining polished and sophisticated. From evening gowns, to skirts, to sweaters, the look is perfect for a night on the town with the girls, or while draped on the arm of that special man in your life. New Year’s Eve is the time to show your wild and playful side to the world and this look will help you do it. Go wild for feathers!
Keep it Tight
It’s all about the silhouette and a tie or belt can be any girl’s best friend. Forget the constricting corsets of yore, today’s lines are clean and sleek. You worked hard for those curves…now show them off!
Cheers to the New Year’s in all it’s splendor and here’s hoping that you make it a night to remember!
