In the Mood for 2013 in Style

New Year's Eve may just be another night but for us it's another excuse to look our best! We wanted to share some inspiring outfits that we can see us ringing in the new year with. Whether you're sharing an intimate night with your closest loved ones or braving the crowds to catch some fireworks, we've you covered with an outfit that will help you face the new year in style.


"There's no better time than New Year's Eve to dress well - and be noticed! It is the best opportunity to experiment with fashion styles that we might feel too shy to try, such as bright colors, studs, over-the-top accessories, and sequins."

Holiday Gatherings
Don't be shy to dress up for gatherings this holiday season! It is a big deal that the world has made it pass Dec. 21 2012 :p. Bust out fun patterns with bright colors and be a cheerful funky fashionista.

Dance Party
If you are going to a dance party, then you should really dance, not just tap your feet or nod your head with a smile. Wear something that allows lots of body movement and a pair of comfortable shoes. As for colors, red and gold add warmth and cheer to the party atmosphere. Accessorize with a bit of shine to make the holidays bright.

Intimate Dinner
Some of us might not want to invest in a brand new outfit for NYE, so the trick to look festive is to leverage the right kind of accessories. Find some body-draping jewelry that you can easily layer on top of a simple black dress or top. Also, the add-on collars seem to be lots of fun to play with. The best part of draped jewelry or collars is that they make a great impression at the dinner table (people are just looking at what is above the table right?). Belts and clutches are worth investing too - they can make any outfit look upscale and sophisticated.

Outdoor Fireworks
If you are going to be outdoors in winter, like waiting at Times Square for the ball drop and snapping pictures of your friends, family, and the crazy lights, bundle up with hats and special gloves. Many gloves now have the "tech fingertips" so you can still be swift taking photos of fireworks using your phone. I'd also recommend knitted, over-the-knee dresses to layer inside a long coat. Knitted dresses are the bests for cold weather: they are usually slightly over-sized, so you can wear an undershirt inside (Uniqlo has many fitted undershirts with HEATTECH). Also opt for a pair of comfy boots instead of heels for the best and most comfortable evening of 2013.

"Do I believe in casual gatherings for New Year's Eve? Of course I do. However I don't believe in dressing casually for New Year's Eve. Everyone should start off their new year with their best and sparkliest foot forward! So the outfits I put together have plenty of sparkle to last year round. "
