Sequins? For New Year’s Eve? Groundbreaking(!) We hear you, but of all nights to embrace the glitz and glam it’s NYE, try this sequin slip from PIA Boutique for size, we love its rose gold hue. If sequins aren’t your thing, explore other textures such as whimsical 3D flowers and feathers as seen on this retro inspired Trelise Cooper top, gorgeously paired with these pink pants or consider leather skinnies for a modern take. Lace is another wonderful texture that ensures you look ladylike, we love this elegant navy sheath by Natalie Chan, worn with a nude slip the lace motif really pops.
