The Perfect New Year’s Eve Outfit

2017

How are you celebrating New Year’s Eve this year? Whether you are going out with your best friends or staying at home with your loved ones, it’s always fun to dress up! Although glitter is a girl’s best friend, we are straying away from the sparkly look this year. We are ringing in the New Year with some of 2016’s favorite trends, such as the cold shoulder, criss-cross necklines, peep toed booties and choker necklaces.

NEW YEAR’S Eve OUTFIT #1:

Step into 2017 with the latest fashions. We took our Elan Cold Shoulder Striped Dress and paired it with Jessica Simpson Peep Toe Booties for an effortless look that everyone will love! Complete your outfit with a Kendra Scott necklace.

Now that your outfit is covered, let’s talk about hair and make-up! No matter what length of hair you have, beach waves are always a good idea. Grab your curling wand and add some loose curls to that beautiful hair of yours. Top your look off with a smoky-eye and some red lipstick.

We layered this beautiful vest over a Wishlist Criss-Cross Sweater and a pair of black Flying Monkey Jeans. Keep the choker trend going by adding a Pink Pewter Choker necklace to your outfit.

Keeping the hair and make-up simple will do the trick for this look. A low pony and your favorite studs is all you will need. Adding shimmery eye shadow and nude lipstick will give this natural look a little sass!

Now that your outfit is on point, let’s make your hair and make-up just as pretty! A half up top knot messy bun with a few curls will do the trick to complete this look. Adding a smoky eye and a soft pink lipstick will leave you looking flawless all night!

Dress down your bomber jacket with a sports look by throwing this jacket over a graphic tee. Top off your outfit with a leather or suede baseball hat. With these key items, you will nail the street-style look!

With bomber jackets, you have unlimited possibilities when it comes to styling them. Dress up these jackets by wearing them over a dress or paired with a skirt, either way you will look super chic.

For an effortless look on those colder days, wear your bomber jackets with a lightweight sweater and a scarf.  To complete the look add a beanie to your outfit. With the various options, you won’t go wrong adding this trendy little number to your closet!

Bomber jackets aren’t just for the ladies. We’ve spotted a few of our favorite male celebrities wearing these jackets. Adam Levine and Ryan Gosling were both spotted in bomber jackets. And, of course Pharrell Williams was spotted rocking a floral bomber jacket (which only he could pull off!).Bomber Jacket for MenQuilted Bomber Jacket | Long Sleeve Curved Hem Tee |Jogger Pants| Converse Shoes

Criss Cross Tops and Dresses |All about that Neck(line)|

The terms “lace up” or “criss cross” may cause you to immediately think of lingerie or a risqué Halloween costume, but a strappy neckline doesn’t have to be intimidating (or a look reserved for night time). This trend is something you can work into your every day wardrobe. In some cases, it’s even suitable for work.

Criss Cross Tops

criss cross tops

A criss cross neckline add a subtle, slightly rebellious, detail that elevates even the most basic pieces. One of our favorite criss cross tees is available here in multiple colorways and sleeve lengths.

You’ll want to add a few (or three or four) to your wardrobe ASAP.

Bralettes

criss cross bralettesA criss cross bralette can be paired with a v-neck or lower scoop neck top so the strappy piece peeks out at the neck and amps up the overall look.

Criss cross bralettes also work well with off the shoulder shirts. Not only do they add a little extra coverage if you don’t want to completely bare your shoulder, but it also adds an element of edge to your outfit.

 

LACE UP DRESSES

lace up dressesAnother way to rock a detailed neckline is a lace up or criss cross dress. A dress with a trendy neckline eliminates the need for a necklace, but can be paired with a choker necklace for extra style points.

How will you wear criss cross tops and lace up dresses this season?

It’s Sweater Weather Y’all

elan-cold-shoulder-sweater-gray-sw1506There is something about fall and the weather changing that just makes us want to dress for the season. Maybe it’s the leaves on the ground or the chili mornings that makes us wake up and sip on our hot coffee. Either way, we will most likely be wearing a sweater!

This year it is all about the chunky, oversized sweaters. Stay trendy this season by trying different necklines with your sweaters. Some of our favorite necklines this year include cowl, turtleneck, keyhole, and crisscross. Another trend that is hot this season is the cold shoulder and off the shoulder look. Although it’s not ideal for the colder weather, it is an adorable look that you just can’t pass up!

The Chunky Sweaterunspecified

The bigger the better! We all have our favorite sweaters and a chunky sweater is mine! Something about the oversized fit that just makes wearing chunky cable knit sweaters that much more comfortable. These oversized sweaters are perfect for pairing with your favorite skinny jeans. Take comfy to an extreme and wear it with leggings this season! Stay trendy and try a little half tuck in the front of your skinny jeans for a chic look that shows off the waist definition.

The Cowl Neck Sweatercarys-fringe-sweater

Sometimes the big chunky sweaters aren’t for everyone! You can always try a lightweight sweater that features different necklines. One of my favorite necklines is the cowl neck. The cowl neck is loose and breathable which is the perfect mix of laid-back and trendy.

The Cold Shoulder Sweaterelan-cold-shoulder-life-sw1210-charcoal

Don’t let the cold stop you from being trendy this season! Cold shoulder tops are a hot item this year and they have now made it in a sweater. My favorite cold shoulder sweater this year is from Elan. It features a lightweight knit material that is flowy making the perfect fit for anyone! Cold shoulder sweaters are perfect for the transition from season to season. Add one to your closet TODAY!

Trend Alert: Sherpa Pullovers and Vests

Sherpa for men and womenFALL IN LOVE WITH SHERPA

Dylan by True Grit

Introducing the item of the year from True Grit Clothing: sherpa Pullovers and Vests! These pullovers and vests are to die for! The ultra-plush fabric is perfect for the colder weather heading our way. The main question we receive about these hot items are regarding the sizing and the difference between True Grit and Dylan.

True Grit:

Built for men. True Grit pullovers are crafted with a squared hem and side slits. These men’s pullovers have an oversized fit and are perfect for layering. When men purchase True Grit pullovers, we recommend ordering their true size. For women ordering a True Grit pullover, we recommend ordering down one size for the perfect, slightly oversized fit.

Dylan by True Grit:

Dylan is the women’s brand made by True Grit clothing. The women’s Dylan pullovers have a slimmer fit and also feature side slits. Made in U.S. women’s sizing instead of junior’s, these pullovers are cut with an oversized construction. We recommend ordering your true size in these pullovers to receive the desired fit.

Wear your True Grit vest over your favorite plaid shirt. For a more comfortable look, pair it over a Patagonia or The North Face hoodie. Don’t let the cold stop you, take on colder weather with sherpa this year!
