New Year’s Eve is around the corner and whether your perfect idea of welcoming on 2017 is watching the ball drop in Times Square while comfortably on the couch or it’s by getting all dolled up and dancing he night away, here are four fashionable looks and easy accessorizing ideas I brought to The Rhode Show this week:
Look 1: Soft cotton CHEERS t-shirt from Old Navy ($5 on sale) and Gap true skinny jeans, both from Tanger Outlets at Foxwoods Resort Casino.
Look 2: Long-sleeve sheer tunic/dress with leather paillettes by Staples from The Sail Loft on Bowen’s Wharf in Newport. Pair with black leggings and heels, opaque black tights and heels, skinny jeans or with a blazer, etc. Shop The Sail Loft now via Shoptiques.
Look 3: Gold, rose gold and silver sequin mini dress with 3/4 sleeves, round neckline and a swing silhouette. Can also be paired with leggings or tights. $189. The Sail Loft on Bowen’s Wharf in Newport. SShop The Sail Loft now via Shoptiques.
Look 4: Long-sleeve shimmering body suit paired with flirty tulle midi skirt. Whole look from Charlotte Russe and under $50, both from Tanger Outets at Foxwoods Resort Casino.
On me: Use your favorite black dress as a canvas for chic accessories. I’m wearing the J. McLaughlin Betts dress which is as elegant and dramatic as it is comfy and low-maintenance. The vegan leather collar and side welt pockets make for chic detailing. $225, J. McLaughlin Newport.
Easy accessories: Extra long necklace with gold chain and amber-hued stones, J. Crew Factory Store; multi-stone tassel necklace from LOFT, both from Tanger Outets at Foxwoods Resort Casino.
