New Year’s Eve has truly made for some of our favorite memories over the last few years. This year, we’re looking forward to a more low-key celebration than usual, as we’ll be in California to introduce Clementine to her great-grandparents. We can hardly wait to soak in lots of family time as we look ahead to a whole new decade. Even though there is a good chance we’ll be clinking champagne glasses and counting down to midnight while cozied up in pajamas, I couldn’t resist rounding up some of my favorite pieces that would be perfect for a glamorous grande finale to 2019.
On New Year’s Eve, more is always more! There’s no better occasion to embrace sparkly accessories, luxe fabrics, and statement silhouettes. For a formal or cocktail celebration, take your pick of allover sequin Gal Meets Glam Collection pieces: the silver Diana dress and jacket, the emerald Carrie dress (as seen here), the plum Casey jumpsuit, or the black Farris dress. Using such bold fabrics while ensuring each style still felt feminine and classic was an exciting design challenge, but I love the way each one turned out: timeless, but full of personality. Play up their festive feel with accessories like a velvet bag, a faux fur coat, a pearl-studded headband, or feather mules.
If your celebration calls for a more casual, but still celebratory look, I’m especially loving these satin trousers, silver tops like this and this, and sparkly blouses like this and this. Add a pair of dance floor-ready heels and a pair of statement earrings to complete the look. See more of my favorite pieces for going all-out with your NYE outfit below.
