New Year’s Night

2 years ago by

When we thought about New Year’s Eve and what to really wear, we wanted to show you a super chic couple!

And who better than Jane, the Fashion News Director of Glamour US, and her husband Giancarlo. Since it’s that time of year (the end! we made it!) when advice on what to wear for evening is imperative, we asked Jane to help. Luck be a lady, and that lady is Jane, to guide you into the new year with a little bit of elegance…

What are you doing for your New Year’s celebration? Do you have an outfit planned, or will you stay in and watch the ball drop on TV?

Hair and makeup is so important in terms of complementing the look and setting the tone. I’m generally of the mindset that less is more, although I do love either a smoky eye or a red lip.

Choose one highlight piece and keep the rest of the outfit relatively simple. So if you’re wearing a little black dress, try a statement shoe. But don’t throw all of your craziest pieces on together. Again, less is more. Try to avoid having too many voices screaming for attention.

If you’re going to a dinner party, decorate from the waist up because you’ll be sitting most of the evening and that’s all anyone will see. Peter Copping, the Creative Director at Oscar de la Renta, once told me that and I thought it was such a smart point.
