Winter 2013 Style Inspiration: What to Wear for New Year’s Eve

You ladies are not playing around when it comes to looking fab for New Year’s Eve, as the very specific requests have rolled in by the tons! I have yet to finalize my plans, but I’m absolutely positive that I will not be hitting the club this year. I will most likely bring in 2014 sharing laughs and champagne over a nice dinner with my baby sis. But for you Bombshells looking to pop bottles and dance the night away on December 31st, today’s post is for you.
Let’s dive in…

The Great Gatsby is quite the popular party theme this year as two Bombshells are looking to bring in the new year Roaring 20s style.

First up Lavon writes, “Hi, this New Years I am going to a Great Gatsby themed party and I would love to wear a feather mini dress. I know this look was popular a while back but do you think you could help me find something? I am a college student on a budget so nothing too expensive but I would really love to follow the theme of the party. I would prefer black but any color will do. Thanks so much. P.S. your site is BOMB!”

Give into the opulence that was the roaring twenties with an embellished feather-trimmed mini and a sequin cami. Add lots of bling with gold chandelier earrings, a flapper inspired headband, and a gilded evening clutch.

Finish the look with a plush fur coat, black and gold ankle-strap heels, and a vivid red lip.

Next up reader Kay writes, “Dear Claire, Thank you so much for the quick response on Twitter regarding my New Year’s Eve outfit debacle. The church I attend is having a ‘do’ on the night and the theme is “Gatsby”. Please help me Claire! I’m on a tight budget as I just moved into a new flat. Moving bills and all, I would love something to complement my chocolate complexion. I hope this extra detail helps. Thank you so very much.”

A beaded flapper inspired top mixed with a silver maxi skirt will give you the look you desire.

Old Hollywood glam is another theme that has you fashionistas ready to hit the town.

Cedes writes, “Hello, I am going out for New Years and I am not sure what dress to wear. I am wearing my Christian Louboutin Pigalle 120 with a classic Hollywood hairstyle. I want something that will standout and also fitting. Will you please help me with this?”

Take your pick between a saucy jumpsuit option or sparkle in a shimmering black sequined cocktail for an all-black-everything look.
