With Christmas just around the corner, it's impossible not to think about the festivities that follow: New Years Eve. You probably already know that New Years Eve usually requires you to don your wildest, most over the top outfit of the year – unless of course, you're staying in – then all you need is a cozy pair of pajamas! This makes finding the perfect outfit all the more difficult (as if finding the perfect outfit isn't difficult enough!), which is why Get The Look is here to provide you with some NYE outfit inspiration straight from your favourite style bloggers.
NYE OUTFIT INSPIRATION 2016
Sequins are – and always have been – the quintessential embellishment when it comes to New Years Eve. But after years of sequin dresses taking over the night, it's time to give your sequinned look a more original twist. L'Oreal Paris muse and style blogger Kristina Bazan showed us how to don a subtler take on sequins by pairing a sequin tank with a simple pair of jeans, a scarf belt and a matching sequin choker.
Add an edgy twist to your glamorous look by wearing your hair in twin top knots on each side of your head, then curling the bottom slightly for a more evening-appropriate hairstyle.
Lately, metallic silver has been the metal of choice when it comes to getting dressed up for an evening out. It's even made its way to our beauty kits in the form of eye shadow, hair gel and lipstick! Work the metallic trend like style blogger Alicia Roddy this New Years Eve, who showed off a black t-shirt tucked into an eye-catching metallic silver mini skirt. Alicia layered the look with a velvet jacket that will be sure to keep you stylish and warm this NYE!
Sheer is one of the easiest ways to achieve a sultry evening look this New Years Eve, so why not go all out and rock a full-on sheer dress like style blogger Danielle Bernstein of We Wore What? The brunette blogger donned a floor-length sheer gown with Victorian-style embellishments at the chest and subtle ruffles at the bottom of the dress. For an ultra-chic look, layer your sheer dress over top of a cool bralette and high waisted underwear shorts. Don't forget your favourite berry lipstick!
This season, velvet has been taking over the closets of A-list celebrities and style bloggers in many forms. Not only does it give off warm and cozy vibes that are perfect for winter, it adds the perfect sultry and sophisticated touch to your look! Whether it's your shoes, handbang, or outfit, don't be afraid to play around with velvet looks this NYE.
Danielle Bernstein showed off a red velvet gown with plunging neckline on her Instagram – the perfect look to ring in the New Year!
Just because you're already wearing an over-the-top velvet, sequin or sheer ensemble, it doesn't mean you have to turn it down when it comes to accessories. Shea Marie of Peace Love Shea showed off a maroon sequin gown on her Instagram account, and paired it with a metallic gold belt around the waist. She matched her beauty look by creating a star shape around one of her eyes in glitter!
Don't be afraid to rock accessories and makeup looks that are equally as bold as your outfit this NYE!
