New Year's Eve is notorious for being known as the one night of the year in which it is mandatory to dress up. Looking your best is not optional and we know as much as you deny that you'll leave the house this year you're going to end up partying all night long.
Every New Year's Eve is a chance to start anew. It is a night fantasized all around the year for it's spontaneous possibilities - Who will your midnight kiss be? How can you be sure that you start the first few hours of the year right? And if you're like us, you're worrying about what you'll be wearing during the first few hours of the year.
The great thing about a New Year's Eve outfit is that it has the potential to either reflect on the year you've had or even foreshadow the year to come. Dressing for this particular night of celebration is so much more than any other night of partying you may be accustomed to. This outfit speaks volumes and making that realization can make deciding on any one outfit rather daunting.
Now, though it sounds like we have taken a dark turn, trust that we are not here to scare you for your big night. Instead, we are here to remind you that we are here for you and we want to help!
We are firm believers in the tradition of dressing to impress on every occasion but particularly on the night of all nights; the last night of the year and the first night of the year. Not only for the fact that we truly love playing dress up but for all of our very serious and very really reasons previously mentioned.
Talking to our friend Devon Hembury, of Seventeen Dresses, we realized that we are not alone in the boat of New Years Eve fashion anxiety. So, we asked Devon to help us overcome our fears and the results are rather fabulous. Each look will leave you inspired and make you forget you were even worried about what you were going to wear to begin with.
We invited Devon to come in and put together a few of her ideal New Year's Eve ensembles and each outfit is perfect in its own unique way. Whether you're going out with friends, staying in with family or going to let the night take you where it may (only suggested for very brave souls), find a little bit of yourself in each of these outfits and use them to make your New Year's Eve get-up the best that it can be!
Scroll down and find loads of chic, shimmery and all around elegant style beauty.
So ladies, will your outfit reflect on the year you've had or will it foreshadow the year to come? Of course we love moving forward, but nostalgia has a certain charm about it as well. Past or future, whatever you decide is here's to a beautiful, magical and memorable night.
Don't forget to make a stop at La Femme Chic before you finalize your look for the night and most importantly, be safe.
