Replace Sequins With Pearls This New Year's Eve

December 28, 2015

All black street style

The big party of the year is only a couple days away and I'm sure you're wondering what to wear for New Year's Eve!! I personally have decided to break from sequins and wear something less shiny and yet festive. If you remember a few days ago, I posted a Christmas look wearing all black; this time for a New's Years look, I decided to do exactly the same, but with different separates.
As I mentioned earlier in this month, and as most of us already know, when we wear a monochromatic look, we can play with textures as we please without looking too busy or overwhelmed. In this opportunity, I opted to wear a full skirt and a see-through lace top instead of a dress, just to make things a little less traditional. However, I chose to wear classic and traditional pearls for jewelry in order to replace shiny sequins but to still keep a lady-like party-ready vibe.

Pearl strands come in different lengths, however, I tend to wear more of the choker length. This style, besides complimenting almost any neckline, is also classic, versatile and appropriate for every occasion. Regardless of your outfit, you really can't go wrong with a strand of pearls and if you want to be matchy matchy like me, compliment it with pearl studs.

Today's photo shoot was very fun, because it took place at the Grand Rapids, MI famous landmark La Grand Vitesse, built by Alexander Calder in 1969.

This is the last post for 2015. Once again, I had a blast sharing with you my sense of style throughout my looks. Thanks so much for reading my blog and sticking with me and also for your priceless comments, chats and, emails; not only here, but also on Instagram and Facebook. I wish you a wonderful New Years and hopefully, I'll be back posting in a couple days.
