Now that Christmas is a wrap, fashion aficionados are super excited to turn their attention from holiday feasting to fashion indulging. For what is the last supersize party bash of 2014 and bring in the New Year with lots of glitz and glamour! New Years Eve celebrations are taking place all over the city, so it’s important to put your best foot (in heels, please!) forward and stride vivaciously into 2015 with the glitz and glamour that says you’re ready to rock the night away!
New Orleans is a city with a global reputation for knowing how to throw a great party and there is never a shortage of shindigs or soirees to attend! So, whether you’re heading to a dressy gala, hitting the hot spots in the city or planning a low-key get together with a few of your BFF’s, a New Years Eve celebration is a great occasion to glitz it up and be creative with your fashion style. Think of it this way: This is the last chance to go out in style AND the first chance to bring in the New Year looking and feeling fabulous! After all, New Year’s Eve only happens once a year (duh) and it can actually set the tone for what’s in store for you for the year ahead. So make sure your look is one that will commend everyone’s attention. Like some wise fashion diva once said; “It’s better to burn out than to fade away” . . . so it’s time to find the most perfect New Year’s Eve outfit!
Below are some of my favorite and trendy fashionable looks to consider for your supersize NYE bash. Featuring some of the Gulf Coast’s hottest designers and retail shops these fashions will inspire you to create an ensemble that exudes the originality and effortless style that is characteristic of New Orleans itself.
So, have a look, dress up, and have a very happy New Year!
