what to wear + new year's eve



I'm jumping the gun a little bit and going straight to New Year's Eve prep. Fortunately and unfortunately, I believe I've used up all my festive holiday spirit already...and it's only December 23rd. I went to Santacon in NYC a couple weekends ago, and last weekend was my family's holiday party. I've been listening to Christmas music since October, and honestly with the combination of parties and work I am very exhausted. 

I also have completely dropped the ball on posting, which I completely apologize for...so here is a what to wear post for New Year's Eve. 

Last year, my friends and I went out in Stamford, CT. It was a big deal since we were all finally 21, and could actually go out (legally) to a bar for the holiday. This year it's a bit trickier since all my friends live in different places around the country, and no one really knows what the "cool thing" to do is on NYE. 

But, as of yesterday, I've got two celebrations to go to (no idea what my game plan is going to be considering on is in Manhattan and the other in Brooklyn), but let's be real...the fun part is the hair, makeup, and outfit. 

I'll get to the hair and makeup in another post next week, but today, here are my favorite options for what to wear on NYE. 

Black Jumpsuit I've put this on my what to wear + holiday party post, and I'll put it on this post too. This jumpsuit is literally the best option for dressing up or down, and for a multitude of situations. I'd go with black for this specific occasion. 

Booties
 I am 90% sure I'm wearing booties next Saturday night. They're the most comfortable option, and can be worn with basically anything. I love these leopard print booties with an all black outfit.

Choker THE CHOKER. So ideal for NYE. I'm personally going for a gold layered choker, but literally any kind works.  

Clutch / Crossbody Bag Just don't bring anything without a long strap. I always have my black Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac with me, but don't be afraid to be festive with your crossbody as well. This Box Clutch from Revolve is a clutch and crossbody.

Fringe Earrings If you're not wearing a choker, go for statement earrings. I'm trying to be more adventurous with my jewelry choices (it's usually gold hoop earrings or nothing). New Year's resolution? 

Leather Jacket You're not going to be wearing a puffy coat out (as sad as that may be - there's nothing worse than being cold when going out), so stick to a leather jacket as your source of warmth. 

Romper Yeah it's going to be cold in New York and yeah that's going to suck but I love rompers, especially long sleeve rompers. I originally was going to wear this very tight black dress with cutouts (why not, ya know), but I just found this long sleeve backless romper that's actually perfect for the night! Here's the question: what are y'alls thoughts on tights and rompers? Comment below and let me know!!

Sequined anything Dresses, tops, bodysuits, skirt, pants, LITERALLY ANYTHING. I know it's so cliché to wear sequins on New Year's Eve but whatever they're fun and festive. Don't wear a gold or silver bodycon sequin dress, because absolutely not, but a black shift dress or silver skirt with a high neck bodysuit - much better. I am loving this bustier-inspired bodysuit from House of Harlow...great for the holiday season in general.

What are y'all wearing / doing for New Year's Eve?
