The How-To: New Year’s Eve Denim.


You could rock a sexy dress for New Year’s, but maybe you are more of a jeans and tee kind of gal. (Like, ahem, me.) If so, a few tips to keep in mind when getting dressed for the big night.

The Fit: It’s important to find the right pair of jeans for your body shape and style. The styles to shop for this holiday season are the skinny, the legging, the boyfriend and slim flare. If you find the one that suits your style and complements your figure best, you can’t go wrong.

The Color: Jeans come in a variety of washes and textures, but when planning your holiday party outfit, remember: The darker, the better. Dark washes — blue, black and gray — are typically more slimming and offer a dressier, more polished look. Coated jeans are a must-have for the season and read dressy, almost like leather.

The Top: Pair your jeans with a chic top, an off-the-shoulder tunic or a festive sequin top for the ultimate festive and fun holiday look. Jackets and vests are a nice layer-up, especially if they boast a little sheen or sparkle.

The Accessories: Accessories are, of course, an easy way to dress up any outfit. Add a beaded or sequined clutch handbag to render your look night-ready. And for jewelry: The bigger the bling, the better. Don’t be afraid to mix it up; combine those pearls, gems and metals.

The Shoes: Let the denim be the only casual piece of your look. Pair your jeans with classic heels, sequin ballet flats or short ankle boots.
