It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the staffers here at Shopbop HQ possess some amazing personal style. So, we decided to challenge a few of them to create head-to-toe looks that fall under a specific price point. This month, we tasked stylists Phoebe and Dokia with building a New Year’s Eve outfit for less than $700.
“Glitz and glamour are a key component to any good New Year’s Eve ensemble, but I refuse to ruin my night by being uncomfortable. I love the walkable height (and affordable price!) of these See by Chloé metallic pumps, which are sure to be a wardrobe workhorse after the holidays as well. With the temperatures dropping, I’ll be comfortable and stylish in a glam faux-fur jacket, which looks great draped over the shoulders indoors as well as buttoned to the top in between events. I’ll pair it with a tactile miniskirt and a basic white tee, and I’ll complete the look with a rich, boho-cool clutch.”
“When I think of NYE, I always think eye-catching—whether it’s shiny, bold prints, or color. One important thing to keep in mind when deciding what to wear is the location of the occasion. This year I’ll be at a friend’s with the possibility of going out, so I want to be comfortable, not too dressy, but still night-out worthy. This look is definitely my style, so I know I won’t feel uncomfortable—I can still dance the night away if that’s where we end up. And they’re great investment pieces that I can wear again on a non-NYE occasion. It’s a win-win!”
