0 Comments 04 January 2011

You found the perfect New Year’s Eve dress, you splurged on those killer heels and you’re absolutely obsessed with the new statement jewelry you had bought just for your NYE night out on the town! But now that the festivities are over, what are you going to do with these perfect party pieces that you looked so long and hard for?

Well, keep wearing them obviously! Just because the parties are over, it doesn’t mean you have to shelf your fancy wear just yet! We’ve picked the five most common statement party pieces and are showing you how to translate them from show-stopping ensembles to wearable stylish looks for everyday! Then click on the slideshow to see some of our fave ideas!

The Fancy Dress – Whether it’s a sparkly draped number, or a femininely lacy piece, your New Year’s Eve dress easily translates into a dress that makes just as big of an impact during the day! Adding a pair of tights and a fitted leather(-ette) or denim jacket helps give the look a more casual air. For shoes, try trendy menswear inspired oxfords or a pair of high, but day-appropriate wedges or booties!

Faux Fur Outerwear – This gave your NYE ensemble an air of luxury and looked amazing with that mini and stilettos. Give your day look the same sophistication by throwing your faux-fur piece over jeans and a sheer blouse. Or try it with leggings and a worn sweater for a more street savvy vibe. Cage heels or slouchy flat boots add edge and help complete the look!

Statement Jewelry – Chunky cuffs, glittering neck pieces and big, bauble rings look good anytime! Just remember the rule of thumb and be sure to keep the rest of the look simple! Just as cute with a sleek monochromatic look, or as a dressy addition to boyfriend jeans and a loose tee, statement jewelry is versatile and eye-catching. Just remember that, for the day, less is more. Limit yourself to one head-turning piece.

Bold Heels – Nothing comes between a girl and her shoes! Those glittering platform heels, or strappy stilettos make your legs look awesome so keep on wearing them! Simply add them to any outfit – from skinny jeans to long-sleeved minis – and get instant sex appeal! Add a blazer for a more professional approach.

Sparkly Clutch/ Crossbody Bag – It’s shiny, it’s sparkly and the perfect size. Keep this bag by your side or slung over your shoulders by letting it take center stage. With such an eye-catching purse, you don’t need much else to stand out! Whether it’s paired with your fave pair of jeans or as a sweet accessory to a flirty day dress, the sparkly NYE clutch/ bag will look right at home. Really make a statement by having your nails or flats match the bling!
