Ah, a new year is upon us. Its time to cast off the melancholy mishaps of such an unlucky year. 2013... ugh! I still get the shivers every time I write the luckless number. But a shiny new day is just on the horizon. A chance to start a new life! Turn over a new leaf! Give birth to a new you! And how will you launch such a grand feat? In a new dress of course!
Holiday color trends are simple this season: Neutrals, cool blues, and warm reds with cool undertones.
The key to pulling off this somewhat lackluster palette is through texture, prints, sequins, and metallics. I put together some looks to give you some ideas of how to pull off a picture perfect NYE 2014! Some of the ensembles might be a little pricey, but as always, your local shops, boutiques, and webbies will typically have similar affordable pieces. Use your Bargainista know-how to improvise!
