We love a good party, and nothing tops the fanfare that comes with prepping for New Year’s Eve. The occasion comes with a heady mix of emotions, namely the excitement and anticipation of all that the new year will bring (and we’ve got a feeling that 2017 will be a good one!). That, coupled with the necessity of finding the absolute right ensemble to crack open the bubbly and dance away the last hours of December, can be overwhelming and wonderful… and well, overwhelming. What to wear? It must be striking, flattering and festive, all wrapped in one! At least, that’s our take. Yours?
Our top pick for the occasion came in dashing red velvet, a LRD (little red dress, if you will), with a plunging backline and form-fitting silhouette that fits like a glove. Velvet is this season’s textured darling – blogger babes took to it like bees to honey – and we simply couldn’t get enough of it ourselves!
Shoutout to our fabulous merchandising intern at LILA Fashion International, Jasmine, for showing us how to simply style this show-stopping piece for the par-tay you’ll be attending. It will most definitely be a evening to remember! Embellishments have been kept to a minimum, because the dress, does, speak for itself. Wouldn’t you say?
The look is accessorized with simple and chic pearl strands from LILA’s own jewelry collection, and a statement gold metallic clutch (a favorite!), lovingly handcrafted from 100% raw Greek leather in Greece. Although we are currently sold out of the Illusion Clutch in gold, this beauty is still available in festive red.
And the best part? All pieces are available to shop at LILA Fashion International. Just in time for the festivities.
We hope you ring in the New Year in high style loves, and we wish you all the health and happiness in the world for 2017! All for now. xo
