Trying to decide what to wear on New Year’s Eve? Whether you’re invited to a gala party or simply meeting friends for a quiet drink, you’ll want to wear something festive to ring in 2016. Just add jewelry! Shop your closet and your jewelry box to create instant party looks: the secret is putting the pieces together in new and clever ways.
Update Your LBD
Take your Little Black Dress and give it a twist with jewelry and accessories. Add black tights, boots and a pair of tassel earrings to modernize the look. Or, take a page from the body jewelry craze and wear your longest necklaces in an X, cross-body bag style.
Bling Out Your Velvet Blazer
We all have a velvet jacket hiding somewhere in our closet. Add pants of the same color for a ‘70s pantsuit look, and wear it with a turtleneck and one or more brooches on the lapel. If you don’t own a brooch, a pair of clip-on earrings will work on the jacket pocket or collar. Anything goes, as long as it sparkles.
Make a Statement with a Satin Blouse
For a party-perfect outfit, just add a shiny blouse to a black pencil skirt. Wear your highest heels or your tallest boots, and top things off with pearls or a statement necklace to show you mean business.
This is the one night of the year when you can never be overdressed. If all else fails, put on a jeweled headband with a black t-neck and pants — and dazzle!
Here’s to a happy and healthy New Year from all your friends at OBJ.
