my actual NYE outfit
I find big parties for New Year's Eve a bit overrated. In Russian tradition, Santa Claus (or Father Frost, as we call him), comes on new year's eve to leave presents under the tree. For the entire time I've lived stateside, I never strayed from this tradition. For this reason, my NYE outfit is rather simple, since I'll be spending it with family. And I get presents!
I wanted a simpler top for this NYE outfit, but one that's still dressy, so this ecru tank with jewels on the collar was my choice. Also, I recently re-found it in my closet ;)
Since it is the highlight of the outfit, some simple black pants will do here.
My go-to choice for slacks (and tops and sweaters) is Vince. I love these cropped pants, and if you are petite like me, they become full length pants! These Vince trousers are great if you want a warmer pant for winter.
I didn't want to do a necklace or big earrings since it's all so close to the bejeweled collar, so I went with a big bracelet. Mine is Antik Batik, which I can't find anywhere anymore, but you can recreate a bangle with some of these sets (Calvin Klein, Ippolita). I also love this DANNIJO cuff, which would be so perfect here.
This top is the center of this NYE outfit, so I went with a light ecru colour -- like this Parker top. I didn't want to wear white, but this top is great because the all-over embellishment makes it less stark.
You can't really tell by looking at it, but the top is completely sheer. I love that you can't see through it, but some contrast, like this Kaufman tank, would be nice. This Generation Love tank has a really similar neckline, but it's a t-shirt. A little more embellishment, like this Parker top is perfect for an NYE outfit.
Have a great New Year's Eve, be safe, and I'll see you next year! ;)
