Did you know there are only 11 days left until New Year’s Eve, my loves? True statement. The illustrious end to an eventful year is oh-so-near! Not to fret, my sweet little firecrackers, there is still plenty of time to get something glamorous and fabulous on that body of yours. Although I won’t be going out this NYE – I’m lookin’ at you, new mom life – that doesn’t mean I don’t want to live ever so vicariously through you and help you close out 2017 with a BANG!
I got to thinking, what would I wear if I were going out this year? There are so many fun trends that popped up this season and I was drawn most to the metals and pieces with unique visual interest. Think: a cool cutout or interesting texture. Luxe fabrics are where it’s at and I’ve rounded up twelve gorgeous looks sure to light the night at any NYE soiree.
You can see I didn’t shy away from anything sparkly… of course you’d expect to find a decent handful of sequined and frosted getups on any NYE best of list, but I found myself gravitating toward items that were a bit more unique than your typical sequin bodycon mini. For example, take a cue out of the millennial pink handbook this year and say yes to a sequin midi or slightly more casual sequin t-shirt dress in blush… or go full glam-thank-you-mam with an ultra chic one-sleeved ombré showstopper.
Feeling a bit more bold? There’s a stunning House of Harlow jumpsuit making an appearance. Also, two very on trend liquid metal dresses in silver and gold. I’d personally be all over #10 if I were going out this year. Just sayin’.
I threw in a few slightly more conservative lace and velvet numbers — there’s nothing wrong with keeping things classic. Or, the sleek cutout sheath is just about as sexy as you can get without actually showing much skin at all. I love dresses like this! It’s all about the imagination.

Cheers to a fun-filled NYE and also what was hopefully an epic, successful, healthy and lovely 2017. There is so much to look forward to in the new year, I can’t wait to see what’s in store!
