New Years Eve

It’s one of those celebrations which you either have big blowout plans for, or you have the plans you don’t quite figure out any further than 72 hours in advance. I truly have been everywhere for New Years Eve, Whether I was huddled outside with a bottle of wine dressed in jeans over long underwear in Mammoth Mountain, or running down the ice cold Las Vegas Boulevard in 4″ pumps and one of my mini party dresses or even the New Years reunion bash at a close friends.

The one factor all of these places have in common is not where I was at 11:55pm or what time I got home, but what I was wearing. Silly, I know, but I do have an endpoint for you- so keep reading. Whether you are in the snow, or Mars or the Mojave desert, or on a plane  when the ball drops, the most important thing is that you start off the new year looking your finest and feeling your sexiest. Who feels sexy in long underwear and jeans? Not I. So even for those of you who will be sporting this hot little look, I have some pointers to turn heads wherever you are.

Obviously the hottest item you could sport for New Years, is a fun dress you wouldn’t normally wear to just a dinner or bar hop. Think fun, sexy, chic and classy. I am not talking about wearing your favorite red dress with the bow covering your shoulder and the slit up the side. No- it is New Years, not the premier of Dancing with the Stars. Leave your frilly fun, game show outfits at home. New Years is about the new you. Trust me, this is not the night you want to go down in your friends books as the girl in the beautiful peacock feather mini dress. Again, think Sexy not Masquerade. This is the time to bust out your favorite black cocktail dress and lavish yourself with this seasons hottest jewelry and stilettos. Avoid any dresses with flower patterns, large  pumpkin sized cutouts, anything with stripes, ruffles or dresses that look like someone threw glitter on you.

If you’re not a big dress person. Not a problem. For you, focus on your mid section, i.e your top and jewelry. Now, a little secret I must share is how fixated men are with the black-tight-spanx- lulu lemon type of pants. Too many guys have told me how they just can’t get enough of them, so save yourself the pressure of picking out the perfect pair of jeans and wear these pups with some hot boots and a chic top that you know you will shine in.

Fashion Jewelry

For New Years Eve, making a statement is sexy, so the best way to make your own statement going into the new year? By wearing the unrecognizable goods. Yes, I know you have a really cute black flower ring, but guess what? So does everyone else. Aim high. If you’re cruising to the mall or rifling through your drawers look for jewelry you wouldn’t normally have the balls to wear but want this big night to be different.

Arden B. Pintuck Leather Jacket $69

I saw a similar jacket over a short holiday dress on a mannequin the other day and it looked very "it". The dress may show a softer side to any girl, but the leather jacket adds that bad girl, fun, sexy flare.
