Trend Watch Wednesday: {Just Add Shine}

via Kate Spade FB page
In anticipation of this Friday, I’ve been scouring the web and thumbing through fashion mags for outfit inspiration.

Of course I’m loving that the sequin trend is still going strong, since anything ridiculously sparkly or glitzy is pretty much de riguer when it comes to NYE attire.

Delicious dresses and eye-catching accessories abound this year in metallics of every color. Some of my favs are sheath style dresses and long or bell sleeved frocks with a vintage twist.

When it comes to completing your look, you’ll obviously need to accessorize. Enter chunky bracelets, door knocker earrings and golf ball-sized cocktail rings. This NYE, when it comes to accessorizing your outfit, bigger and shinier is definitely better.

So now, what are we missing? Ah yes, footwear. One word ladies- heels. The higher the heel, the closer to God, right? : )

1) Sam Edelman Lorissa 2) Kelsi Dagger Linzy 3) Badgley Mischka Humbee II  4) Rock and Republic 5) Elizabeth and James Lilly

Pumps, wedges and booties are all the rage this season for a reason…they look ah-mazing with little dresses. Whether you opt for a shiny shoe or something a bit more demure, make sure they are comfortable enough to withstand the dancefloor.
