What to Wear, Where // New Years Eve


If you are anything like me, then you are already probably thinking about what you’ll be wearing for your New Year‘s Eve plans. My husband and I have come to the decision that it might be nice to switch off every year going forward between celebrating with family and date night alone. That means this year we are spending the night out in the city just the two of us while our son stays with Mimi and Poppi. That also means I need to find an outfit. I thought this would be the perfect time to give you guys some ideas too!W2WW-NewYears2015_2-608x759For New Year’s Eve I love a clean palette of black, white, gold, nudes and even a pop of red to salute the end of the holiday season. A LB(M)D, aka the Little Black Maternity Dress, is an easy option that is always appropriate. I love ones with special details like a jewel neckline for added sparkle. Plus, the detail at the neckline highlights your bust-line and keeps the bling away from the bump, unlike a non-maternity style.

If you are going black tie, a sleek black maternity gown can be gorgeous. Or, for a fashion-forward look, choose the silk pant, which is the silhouette of the season. Pair it with a simple silk maternity top and black blazer to create a chic alternative to a dress.W2WW-NewYears2015_3-608x525Pile on the style with the right extras too. I always start with a fresh face, and that means making sure you have the right foundation. A little self-tanner or bronzer also enhances your pregnancy glow, brightening you right up. Finish off your face with a smoky- eye and mascara. Now, make sure to add some sparkle to the rest of your look!

A shimmer heel, cocktail ring or (sigh) Chanel classic earrings are the perfect additions. I also suggest, especially when expecting, to choose your accessories wisely. Pick one area to highlight to keep your look chic and effortless. If you go with a sparkly heel, keep the rest of your jewelry small or minimal. Maybe add a red lip, but then down-play your eyes. If you’re showing a little leg, then keep your neckline on the modest side.W2WW-NewYears2015_4-608x720Hope you preggonistas find some great style ideas for your New Year’s plans. And if you are staying in, there’s always next year! -Olivia
