What to Wear: Understated New Year's Luxe...

The 31st is sneaking up on us faster than you can say "Bonne année" and it's time to seriously consider what you'll be wearing. While it's easy to think the world is like Queen Bey's jetset lifestyle, the truth is most of us will have our heels (and wheels) on the ground on New Year's Eve. 

So... what to wear? I like the idea of luxe looks with maximum ease. Think: spectacular heels with skinny jeans and a touch of sparkle via a magnificent black chiffon silk blouse. Magnificent earrings round out the look but it's a mesmerizing statement clutch that finishes the look. Hair? Perhaps a chic chignon or the requisite miles of waves look that has become the golden standard. 

The key here is luxurious pieces grounded by denim that feels like your favorite pair. It says you dressed to play but and can be at home just as easily in the VIP room as you could in a friend's living room. It's a look I love and you, my dear, will get more than your average mileage out of this look. 

Alice + Olivia Warok Shrug

Me? Even when going low-key I like to boost the look up a bit. An extra dose of glamour never hurt a girl! Try something along the lines of this chic rabbit fur shrug. Whether you're dancing the night away or sitting by the fire, this glam little piece gets you from curb to car looking oh-so-fabulous and just cozy enough to keep warm. And let's face it: fur is fabulous. 

Wherever New Year's Eve takes you, have fun, be safe and ring in the new year with people who make you happy. xoxo!
