Ring in the New Year in an outfit under $100
The best way to bid adieu to 2015 and welcome in 2016? By looking stylish, all while staying on budget!
If there’s one night on the calendar to go all-out glam, it’s New Year’s Eve. Grab your red lipstick, pumps, and glue for some faux eyelashes and get ready to dance the night away to Uptown Funk (it’s the chart-topping song of 2015, afterall).
Here’s the perfect formula for an unforgettable New Year’s Eve look.
Start with a party dress:
Fringe ruled the fashion kingdom in 2015. And, if there’s anything we learned from its prominence, it was that fringe can transcend the decades. The fringe detailing we saw in 2015 borrowed a little bit from the boho-chic trends of the 1970’s, while still channeling the elegance of the 1920’s flapper era. We love the drama of this long-sleeved trapeze dress that’s elegant in the front, but has a plunging, sexy open back with fringe benefits. We’re guessing you’ll want to rock n’ roll in this frock, because twirling is so much more fun with fringe. Black Fringe Tunic Dress, on sale $34.95 (plus Cash Back), Express.com
Sparkle in some tights:
What’s New Year’s Eve without a pop of sparkle? Stay warm in a pair of tights that have a subtle dose of glamour with sparkly embellishments. Diffused Embellished Tights, on sale $17 (plus Cash Back), Nordstrom.com
Pump it up:
Cut the rug in a pair of party-ready pumps. These mixed media pumps have a shiny faux patent and faux suede upper, but with a 3 inch heel and cushiony memory foam insole, they’re ready to dance the night away. Women’s Joyce Mixed Media Pump, on sale $29.99 (plus Cash Back), Payless.com
Get glam with make-up:
The easiest way to transform your look for a special night? Try something new and different with your make-up routine. Bat your eyelashes at 2016 with some voluminous eyelashes. Faux eyelashes are the perfect finishing touch to a smoky eye and can instantaneously brighten up your peepers. Huda Beauty Classic False Lashes, $20 (plus Cash Back), Sephora.com
