New Year’s Goes Gatsby {A post, by me, from Today’s Woman Now}

NYE Goes Gatsby

 

This year, New Year’s Eve is all about partying like Gatsby. Style-wise, that is. Ring in the new year in full swing, roaring twenties style. A little glitter never hurt anyone, right?

Like anything, I always say go big or go home. Go all out – it’s a holiday, so you can get away with it! Think full-on sparkle and flapper-style dresses and skirts.

Your go-tos this year should be golds and nudes, creams, silvers, and pearl-accented colors. You want lots of sparkle, glitter, fringe and even faux fur. Try a drop waist glitter accent dress like the one above.

Adding accessories, such as a faux fur collar scarf ala Daisy Bucanon above, is sure to be a hit. Layer on the pearls! It’s a signature twenties style that can do nothing but add to a festive outfit. A glitter watch (perfect for a countdown) or a sparkly retro clutch is a great way to dress up an outfit as well. Feeling really bold? Try a pearl or glitter headpiece like this ASOS Flapper Jewel Headband above.
