Well, folks, the largest party of the year is upon us- and that is New Year’s Eve. Yes, this is the night when you put on your best outfit, grab your glam squad, and toast to a new, exciting year! While New Year’s Eve should be the most exciting and fun night of your year, it can quickly become the most stressful party to dress for. If you are anything like me, you have waited until the last minute and that gorgeous dress you’ve been eyeballing for the last month on Rent the Runway is sold out- Yikes! On top of that, there are so many trends floating around for this season- where does one even begin?
Don’t worry though, because here comes Megan to the rescue! I have scoured the internet to deliver you the shopping guide of the season that will help you get into the perfect outfit for your New Year’s Eve soiree. The best bit? Every piece in this shopping guide is $50 or less, bringing you trendy, flattering looks all without breaking the bank. I’ve also narrowed this guide to 3 essential trends that will be a hit at your next special occasion. Let’s jump right into it!!
Trend #1: Velvet
Oh luscious velvet, how I love thee! Velvet was all over the runway during New York Fashion Week. This is one of my favorite trends for the season because nothing adds luxe to an outfit the way velvet does. Sometimes, it seems like you may have to spend a great deal of money to look nice, but with velvet, you don’t have to spend a lot to look expensive. Another tip with velvet is to play with color. Try jewel tones or even pastels- the iridescent material adds multiple dimensions to an otherwise simple wash of color. Here are my top 5 picks for the Velvet trend:
Velvet Plunge Mini Dress – $34
Purple Velvet Mini Dress – $45
Trend #2: Rainbow Stripes
Are you tired of the usual gold or silver sequined outfit for New Year’s? Try out Rainbow Striped Sequins! Rainbow has been on the fashion radar for years, and it has continued to be popular well into the 2018 holiday season. This trend has been seen everywhere, from high street stores to the runway. Combining sequins with bright, rainbow stripes is genius and therefore, minimal accessories are needed. You can even get away with a messy top knot for these outfits- The sequins will make you shine without a great deal of effort! Don’t like dresses? Pair a rainbow striped skirt with a simple top and minimal accessories for a look that is trendy, yet toned down. Here are my top 5 picks for the Rainbow Stripe trend:
Multicolor Sequin Sheath Dress – $44.97
All Flavors Sequin Dress -$39.99
Trend #3: Winter Whites
Winter Whites have already made quite the splash this season! Celebrities like Lil’ Kim have already been out-and-about in white denim and bloggers have been seen wearing all white outfits. White adds freshness to any dark winter wardrobe and you can opt for instant luxe by wearing a head-to-toe white look. For a more refined look, try a crisp, all-white jumpsuit. Just remember to go for true white and none of that off-white business! Here are my top 5 picks for the Winter White trend:
Sugar Free Dress – $32.99
Pedregal Sleeveless Jumpsuit – $27.00
Deep Plunge Jumpsuit w/ Belt Buckle – $48.00
Corset Detail Midi Pencil Dress – $48.00
