Each year, I always end up wishing I’d put a little more thought into my New Years Eve outfit. Since I tend to take Christmas preparations to the very last second for this girl (hello ultimate gift procrastinator) the big event seems to creep up on me! I’m usually left rummaging through my closet, pulling out whatever semi-sparkly thing I have, and trust me… the results are usually less than glam.
New year, new me though, right? :) I decided to get ahead of the game this time around and bring you some fun NYE inspiration! We have this glam leopard skirt to thank for it, actually. The second I saw it, I knew it would be helping me ring in 2016. The classic silhouette, glamorous sheen, and fun leopard print? Perfect! Literally everything I love rolled into one little skirt. And since you might as well go big or go home for New Years, I added the cutest fringe wristlet and a faux fur jacket.
TIGHTS L’eggs Energy Collection Opaque Tights (just $6!) | SKIRT Leopard Skirt | WRISTLET Frisky Biz Wristlet | JACKET Faux Fur Jacket (old Forever21, also love this leopard one) | SHIRT Black Tank (old, similar linked) | SHOES Lace Up Heels | LIP COLOR Cherry Blossom
The one hiccup? Chilly legs… always problematic for a fun night out. So I decided to enlist the help of L’eggs! Specifically, their Energy Collection Opaque Tights. Honestly, I knew I needed tights to make the look practical for New Years, but was initially worried they might throw it off. I was so pleasantly surprised when they proved to do just the opposite. These babies made for a sophisticated and super-flattering finishing touch that definitely makes the skirt pop, while still keeping me warm. Something to consider if you’ll be braving the cold!
I know it seems early to start thinking about NYE, but it will be here before you know it! What are you plans? And more importantly… what will you be wearing?! Let me know!
