For most women, New Year’s Eve means sequins galore. It’s the perfect excuse to get all glammed up and wear your shiniest, sparkliest clothes and accessories. But sequins can be expensive, and who wants to spend a ton of money on a dress or outfit that can really only be worn one day a year (unless you’re the adventurous outfit type).
My solution to budget-friendly dressing is to shop your own closet! What basics do you have that could already work toward an outfit? Then add one shiny, glittery, fabulous piece (could be a shirt, shoes, necklace, clutch etc) that makes it special for New Year’s Eve. This way you’ll only be buying one new item, or you may realize you already have something that could work – sometimes it’s just putting pieces together in a new way. Here are some outfits I’ve come up with to create a New Year’s Eve outfit that’s perfectly blingy and wallet-friendly. And if you’re feeling really daring, you can even pair two of the sparkly pieces together (the gold blazer and black sequin shorts for instance). Cheers!
