Are you ready to sequin in the New Year with the Style Not Age collective?

Hello everyone! How are your preparations for New Year going? Are you ready to sequin in the New Year with the Style Not Age collective? We’re hosting a little party at home for friends; I still haven’t decided on what to wear yet, but this outfit is definitely in contention. It was my turn to choose the theme this month and it just had to be something sparkly.

I had numerous outfit options for this challenge – I’ve got four sequin skirts for starters. But I wanted something a bit more funky for New Year’s Eve, and it doesn’t get more disco than these sequin boots! I bought them in the River Island sale last Winter but haven’t worn them until now. Not content with one set of sparkles, I layered my sequin jacket over a plain black top. As I said in yesterday’s post, less is never more in my book!

I wore the jacket for a Christmas outfit three years ago, but with the more understated combination of boyfriend jeans and black heels. This time I felt like taking it up a notch by swapping blue denim for coated skinny jeans – the same ones I wore in Tuesday’s post.

While I’m not expecting it to be sunny on New Year’s Eve (certainly not after 3pm!) I added these silver glittery sunglasses for a bit of fun. They’re a bit too big and crazy for everyday wear, but I love having fun with accessories on the blog. Maybe I could get away with wearing them out with a plain black outfit. I’m betting my husband would make plenty of Dame Edna jokes though!

    OMG Emma, I NEED those boots!!!!! They’re absolute perfection and just so apt for this evening. You look stunning.
    I’m not very blinged up tonight because we’re currently holidaying around Ireland and I wasn’t able to bring many fancy clothes (boo). I will be thinking about you and your gorgeous boots though when I do get ready!
    Have a wonderful time, Emma and have a Very Happy New Year!
    Big hugs

    Wow great outfit! I love the silver and those boots are fabulous! I love the mix of black and silver and those jeans fit you great! I just got a pair of waxed black jeans I cant wait to wear. I love that they look like leather.

    I have boot envy Emma – those boots are totally awesome! Well done for this totally flamboyant outfit. It’s perfect for NYE partying and I do hope it gets aired at some point. The sunglasses are totally fab and great for showing your husband taking the picture too! My mirror ones always show Polly in the reflection – gives a kinda two-for-one effect!

    Happy New Year – all the best for 2019 x

      Thanks Anna! I did wear the jeans and boot on New Year’s Eve, but with a black one shoulder top instead of the jacket. Wishing you a very Happy New Year!
