Haute New Year’s Eve Style From The Fashion Island Insiders
How will you rock New Year’s Eve?
Well, ladies, if you want to dress to impress, we recommend a trip to the always-trending Fashion Island. You’ll find an array of styles to fit whatever your NYE vibe.
We connected with the FI folks, and here’s what they’re showing as hot for holiday—starting with this strapless lace bustier dress ($425) from Rebecca Taylor. Pair it with tights and strappy heels and you’re midnight sultry. And by the way, Orange County friends, Rebecca Taylor just opened at Fashion Island last week.
We also love this Ella Moss multicolored fur (faux, of course) to make a bold entrance coming or going (see below). Full length sleeves give a great silhouette against the sexy cropped hem. And the shawl collar hangs effortlessly and smacks of holiday glam. Dress it down with flared dark denim and an elegant Ella Moss shimmery cowl neck Aurora tank ($108) for an upscale look that looks like you’re not trying too hard. The just-arrived Keith Jacket retails at $328. (And, psst, Ella Moss also just opened at the center, near Kate Spade).
Fashion Island Insiders also told us to bring your shimmer and shine to the party, as well as consider warm winter whites. Think gold rings and bangles from Nordstrom, perhaps a Vince Matte Sequined Tee, a sparkly Kate Spade clutch, some Jimmy Choo Viola Sandals from Neiman Marcus. You get the idea—what glitters is gold, and what better night to turns heads?
Have we hit your party color palette yet? Or are you a paint-the-town-red kind of girl? Drop-dead red also looks luxe for the night. Red monochromatic looks add fresh style. Consider a stop at Elie Tahari and Trina Turk also has a Gaston Blazer ($498) we love; it’s fabricated from Italian velvet and makes a sumptuous statement.
