wgn NYE segment

Posted on Dec 29, 2012


Yesterday, I talked trends and all things fashion related when it comes to your New Year’s Eve look.  You can sparkle and shine without wearing sequins…and please stay away from a boring LBD.

Here is a description of each look from head to toe, along with the hair and makeup that was done by Epoch Studio Salon.

Look 1 from City Blue

This dress is ideal for a more casual evening out to dinner or inviting friends over.  The silk dress, with self-fabric belt, is an easy and comfortable silhouette to wear, but the print adds a fancy touch.  The hair is in a chic faux bob that was done by curling small sections of hair with a barrel iron and tucking under a few pieces at a time, securing with bobby pins.  The bold eyeshadow pulls out the subtle blue in the print of the dress, and the full lashes make the eyes pop.  The earrings are kept to simple studs, but the acid green scarf adds some drama.  The shoes are color-blocked with a peek of red, and have an overall lady-like demure feel to them.  They are a nice touch when the scarf is not in hand.

Look 2 from Sofia

For the girl who is typically drawn to black, especially leggings, these pants are for you.  The shine and texture is what makes them perfect for a NYE party.  They are more fancy and unique than something you might wear every other day of the week.  The red sheer blouse, with suede accents, is a hot and sexy color to rock on a special occasion.  The open back of the blouse shows off the lace detailing of the bandeau bra.  It is not necessary to walk around half-naked in order to show off your body.  An exposed back is one elegant way to do so.  The black pony hair and leather heels with rose gold toe, complement the red in the blouse well.  The edgy gunmetal choker is a nice alternative to a beaded bib.  Three mixed metal rings, stacked on one finger, is all you need.  Mixing prints and textures is a big DO which is why the grey ostrich clutch is perfect.  Because the blouse is buttoned up all the way it is best to keep all of the hair off of the face.  A top knot is a fast and easy way to do so.  A cat eye with an orange-red lip complete the look.

Look 3 from Edith Hart

If you cannot let go of sequins, try doing it in a beaded way instead.  This skirt is a gorgeous choice.  It is paired with a basic black tee which is a nice background for a statement necklace.  When the top is neutral the hair can be accessorized with a headband or hat.  The vintage curls pair nicely with the pink girly fringe in the skirt.  The eyeshadow is a subtle grey shade with a winged out black liner on the top lid.  The khaki suede chunky bootie (with burgundy accent) makes the legs look long and lean, and the subtle patterned tights add interesting detail without taking away from the skirt.

Look 4 from Krista K

Wearing brights in the winter is another DO.  This color-blocked dress with cowl draped neckline is perfect if you will be at a hotel or partying late into the night at a club.  The vibrant colors reflect beautifully onto Gabby’s face and skin.  To keep from overshadowing the dress, the jewelry, bag and shoe are all in the nude color family.  There is some rose gold and silver sequin detailing in the clutch which is a great addition to this fancy dress.  Again, to keep the focus on the face and dress, the hair is pulled back into a loose chignon showing off the dangle mesh earrings.  Rather than go wild with eyeshadow, wearing teal eyeliner is a great compatible color to the red and purple in the dress.  One bangle and one large cocktail ring is all that you need for finishing touches.
