Heading to a party at your bestie’s place? Whisking away to a romantic restaurant? Regardless of what your plans are tonight, you want to look good! Ringing in the new year surrounded by compliments galore is the perfect way to say farewell to 2013. While your curls are setting and you apply your face, check out these helpful reminders for a flawless New Year’s Eve.

Press Your Dress – Sometimes we get caught up doing big things, that we forget the little things. Wrinkles can ruin a perfectly good dress, so make sure you iron or steam your NYE outfit.

Check Your Nylons – If your nylons aren’t brand-spanking-new, they might have a snag or two in them. Before you do anything, check the pantyhose you’re going to be wearing. The sooner, the better so you can run out to the store to grab a new pair.

Pack The Essentials – You’re likely to tote a clutch, which means less room. Pack the essentials into your little bag – keys, phone, credit card, cash, and ID!!

Have a very Happy New Year. We’ll see you in 2014!

They say what you do on New Year’s Eve sets the tone for how your social life will be in the new year. If that’s true, your outfit choice will shape your 2014 wardrobe, so  you might want to rethink your sweats and fuzzy slippers.

My advice is to step outside of your comfort zone. Start 2014 wearing something that makes you feel great, but perhaps isn’t something you would normally reach for. It might be the little change you need to jump start the new year. This is important no matter what you have planned.

Wear A Daring Colour

If you tend to gravitate towards black again and again, throw on a colourful frock that will garner you some attention. Impress the man in your life and shock your friends, when you arrive splashed in a vibrant shade.

Opt For Shine

Whether your whole outfit is coated in sparkles or just a small section, shine can give your ensemble a pop of glamour. Sequins and gleaming fabric can elevate an entire look, even if paired with denim. If any occasion calls for glitz, it’s this one!

 Wear A Body-Con Dress

Embrace your figure with a body-conscious dress that will show off all your assets. Many of us tend to shy away from dresses that bare it all, but it’s a great way to get comfortable with your body. I can guarantee you’ll look fetching.

Happy Holidays
