3 Fashion Hacks for Looking Fabulous on New Year’s Eve (or at any other party)

Fashion Hacks

Some nights, getting ready to party feels like an event in itself: long shower, detailed make-up, dancing around to my favorite music while choosing what to wear. Other nights, I really can’t. be. bothered. On those nights my goal is to look good with minimal of effort. I tend to be a scrooge about New Year’s Eve (so much pressure for one night out of the year!), so if I decide to even leave the house, you can bet I’m taking a few shortcuts on my look. In case you’ve been nodding your head emphatically to all of the above, here are three of my favorite fashion hacks for looking fabulous:

1. Red Lipstick

Seriously. There’s a lot of bs about make-up “must-haves” out there, but the hype about red lipstick is true. I discovered it several years ago when I was dashing to meet friends for dinner after work and I had time for nothing but lipstick. My friends asked me if I had changed my hair! I recommend doing this with concealer, mascara and eyeliner. At the very least, mascara. (note: the below lipstick images aren’t red, but these brands all have a red shade that I like.)

2. Statement Jewelry

I would like to see more statement jewelry on those “must-have” lists. An eye-catching necklace, ring, or pair of earrings does wonders for an outfit – and conversations. Personally I don’t like big bracelets, because they never fall on my wrist quite right. Above all, don’t count on a statement bag or shoes. If you keep them on, they’re probably not going to be noticeable; if you go to a house party, you may very well end up taking your shoes off or stashing your bag on somebody’s bed underneath a pile of coats. What also works: statement head-gear (headbands, turbans, barrettes, etc). (note: I am obsessed OBSESSED with that Rosantica necklace. It’s two necklaces in one!)

3. Over-the-Top Topper

While I don’t have many, I love a good light jacket. It’s a great alternative to a blouse or sweater, and they add a fun bit of drama. If you live somewhere that has winter, get one that’s slim enough to fit under a coat. This is also great for parties where you’re both in- and outdoors.
