I know this is a tad late, but here is my simple but mind boggling question: For New Year’s Eve do I go with traditional black/white/grey colors or bright colors? I will be at a moderate scale bar (not too fancy but not t-shirt either). Traditional or Peacock?
Last minute planning has so many bad outcomes–flunking a final, picking your mother’s Christmas present from a clearance rack, wearing blue polyester to your own wedding. When will you learn? Well, not today…because when you write into Ask A Woman with such a timely question, we will reward your sloth!
New Year’s Eve out on the town is for tradition–champagne, confetti, Auld Lang Syne, puking in your boyfriend’s new NFL trash can that he got for Christmas, etc. It also takes place in the middle of winter. For both of these reasons, I favor dark or neutral colors (black, gray, white, navy blue, dark brown) in classic lines, cuts, and fabrics. If you want a splash of color or a nod to trends, no problem, as long as it’s in a detail of your ensemble, not the base of your ensemble.
Happy New Year’s to all, and remember that having a designated driver never goes out of style. (Could I be any cornier? No. Could I be any more sincere? No.) See you in the New Year!
