If you’ve been reading Grechen’s Closet for a while, you know that I don’t do sparkly. Even on New Year’s Eve. Especially on NYE, actually, since my step-son is always with us LOL.
I’m also not great at picking out “traditional” party or special occasion dresses; I need my clothes to work for me, in lots of situations and occasions, not just “special” ones. And there’s not much I hate more than buying a piece for one event, then watching it languish in the back of my closet, never to be worn again.
So keeping those things in mind, I’ve chosen just a few dresses I’d wear for a NYE party, or any party, for that matter, and then I’d wear them again and again in everyday life. For parties, I believe in being appropriate and comfortable over anything else, and maybe a little fancy if you feel like it. Hence the prints. (fancy for me, okay??) I’ve even thrown in a sparkly dress (the Reformation) that’s an excellent option for parties and special occasions, and since it’s inherently sustainable, I wouldn’t feel too badly about wearing it only a few times a year.
What are you doing for NYE? What will you wear? What is your party dress philosophy?
Hope you had a merry Christmas if you celebrated 🙂
