Ball Dropping Style: Outfit Ideas for NYE

Blog_12 22_nydresses
Dresses by Marchesa, Alice + Olivia, and Shoshanna.

New Year’s Eve is a spectacle of fabulous excess. When else are you expected, nay, encouraged to drink endless glasses of champagne, dress in a sea of sequins, stay up as late as possible, and make grandiose statements about fixing your life? This year my plans include a wealth of glitter and being wholly overdressed to watch the ball drop at my favorite dive bar.  For those of you with other plans, check out a few outfit ideas below and ring in 2012 with style. 

Black Tie Bash
A classy event calls for an equally elegant outfit. Turn heads in a floor-length Raoul dress in fire engine red. Add sleek tuleste market earrings and an asymmetrical Kenneth Jay Lane cocktail ring. A nude B Brian Atwood pump with a stable heel will keep you on your feet long after the confetti settles.

Playful Party
Celebrate in an easy atmosphere with good friends and a jaunty Alice + Olivia jumpsuit. Strappy gold Marc by Marc Jacobs sandals and a chunky Luv Aj necklace top off a fresh look for the New Year.

Sparkly Soirée
Wear a sequin- and rhinestone-covered Marchesa dress and render the disco ball useless. Complement a messy updo with dangle Made Her Think earrings. Finish it off with crystal-heeled Jean-Michel Cazabat pumps and really give the ball in Times Square a run for its money.
