Biggest Fashion Trends for New Year’s Eve 2017 in Detroit

SPARKLES SPARKLES SPARKLES… sparkles are ALWAYS in on NYE. This is the one night where sparkles and glitter are 100 percent acceptable, so go crazy.

Skin is in. It’s a new year and why not ring it in being a little adventurous with your NYE attire? Dresses peeking a little extra skin are super popular, but be sure to keep it classy.

High waisted EVERYTHANG. High waisted shorts, skirts, and pants are very stylish, but what seems to be the major trend is dressy rompers. However you want to rock your outfit, just make sure to prepare early so that you’re not running around last minute settling for a mediocre outfit.

Blazers. You can never go wrong with a blazer, as they have the power to complete and bring together a whole outfit. Be a little adventurous and wear a bright sparkling one to make you stand out.

LAYERS Be sure to dress accordingly, it may be cold out, but venues with a lot of people heat up quickly. Take advantage of the venue’s coat check and prepare to shed a layer to stay cool.

How to Look Your Very Best for New Year’s Eve 2017 in Detroit

If you are starting to plan for New Year’s Eve 2017 in Detroit, here are a few guidelines to help you look your very best!

Start Planning Early

Everything about NYE can be improved with a little forethought. Figuring out what you’ll be wearing on New Year’s Eve can be frustrating, especially if you leave it until the last moment. To avoid stress, get yourself on Pinterest TODAY. Ideas for outfits, hair, makeup, and nails are in overabundance and cater to every style and personality. Planning early can also ensure more designs and sizes when you start shopping around.

Give Yourself Plenty of Time to Get Ready on NYE

Avoid rushing to get ready or arriving to the party late by giving yourself plenty of time to get ready for the evening. If you think it will take you three hours to get ready, than give yourself four. Starting early allows you to take your time and relax before leaving the house for the evening. It also prevents you from becoming the person everyone has to wait on before they can start partying. Don’t be that person…

 

Women: Know Thy Heel Limit or Pack a Pair of Flats

Is there anything sadder than watching a woman in pain shuffle around a party in skyscraper heels? If you can’t walk in a pair of shoes with confidence, then don’t wear them. I don’t care how pretty those Louboutins stilettos are, if you’re in pain or shaky on your feet then you aren’t looking your best. If you simply must wear those shoes, then pack a backup pair. Dr. Scholl’s offers a product called Fast Flats that are precisely for this situation.

Go the Extra Mile

‘Tis the season for fake eyelashes and everything glitter. Use those untouched glitter eye shadows in your favorite palettes. Guys, want to go black tie? Mention NYEDetroit for a 50% discount on suits from President Tuxedo.

Treat Yo Self

After a strenuous holiday season, take the time to show yourself a little TLC. The days leading up to NYE are the perfect time to add highlights to your hair or get your nails done. If you have a limited budget, head to Groupon for plenty of savings on local salons.

A NYE Detroit Party!

The Pro’s of Singledom. There are lots of positives to being single. Firstly, you don’t have to have to be responsible for anyone else. You can simply do you. No worrying about whether your significant other is having fun or drinking too much! Secondly, you get to savor the possibilities. Anything could happen and you could meet anyone, and that’s exciting unto itself.

Focus On Having Fun. If you head out for New Year’s Eve expecting to meet someone, you won’t. But if you just focus on enjoying yourself and celebrating the New Year, you may meet someone to share that midnight kiss with. That’s just how life works. Instead of setting yourself up to be disappointed, stay positive and just have fun with your friends.

Take The Initiative. If meeting someone to share a midnight kiss with is important to you, then you’ll need to take the bull by the horns and put yourself out there. It can be intimidating to initiate conversation with an attractive stranger, but it can also be incredibly empowering. There are plenty of fish in the sea, so get your flirt on!

NYE 2016 Detroit

New Year’s Eve Detroit at The Motor City Gala

How To Plan The Perfect

Detroit New Years Eve Out On The Town

Start Planning Early. This is 100% the most important thing you can do to ensure a flawless New Year’s Eve. From purchasing tickets to making an appointment at a local salon for the days preceding NYE – the early bird gets the worm!  Many venues and events offer discount rates if you purchase tickets to their New Year’s Eve party early. Ticket prices tend to increase as we get closer to the date, so plan early and reap the benefits! Further saving can be accrued by purchasing tickets in bulk, so start organizing your group of friends ASAP to take advantage of group rates. If you are hoping to secure a hotel room for New Year’s Eve it is vital that you reserve early. Locations will be filling up fast once December hits. Visit NYEDetroit.com for a concise list of NYE parties and hotels in Metro Detroit.

Save Money Where You Can. If you’re in the market for a fabulous New Year’s Eve outfit, keep an eye out for sales. Both local boutiques and national retailers will be running plenty of sales throughout the holiday season. Check out retailmenot.com for updates on sales and coupons.

Scout Out Pinterest For Ideas. Pinterest is chock-full of clever and creative ideas for every facet of New Year’s Eve. Want to learn how to do the perfect smoky eye or find the perfect sequin dress? Look to Pinterest to take your NYE to the next level.

Plan A Pre-Party. Get a group together for dinner and drinks before heading out for NYE or invite everyone to your place for appetizers and cocktails (check Pinterest again for festive and fun recipes). From there you can carpool or grab an Uber/Lyft/Taxi as a group.

Stock Up On Afterparty Snacks. To combat a New Year’s Day hangover, take the time to stock up on plenty of snacks and hydration.  Planning your munchies ahead of time can also help combat overindulging in junk food. Fill your fridge with fresh veggies, fruit, and a case of Gatorade. Or throw a couple of frozen pizzas in your freezer and call it a day.

Secure Your Midnight Kiss. If you’re interested in someone, now is the time to ask them to join your New Year’s Eve entourage before they make plans.

Fizzy Facts About Champagne

Every year millions of bottles of champagne are popped on New Year’s Eve, but what makes this effervescent beverage so appealing?
Here are a few fun facts to stoke your interest.

• All Champagne is sparkling wine, not all sparkling wine is Champagne. This is due to that fact that the name “Champagne’ designates the region of France where it’s produced.

• According to her biographer, Marilyn Monroe once took a bath in champagne. 350 bottles were required to fill the bathtub.

• The longest recorded distance achieved by a popped champagne cork is 77 feet.

• Champagne is generally carbonated white wine, with a few exceptions. Australian Sparkling Shiraz, Portuguese Espumante, and Spanish Cava are three examples of sparkling red wines.

• Champagne ranges from Brut (dry) to Doux (sweet).

• Serving Champagne chilled prevents foaming and the loss of wine.

• It’s speculated that carbonation helps alcohol reach your bloodstream faster. Chugging champagne almost ensures a headache, hence the recommendation to sip.

• Flute glasses are specifically designed to keep champagne carbonated for longer.

• Dom Pérignon was a French Benedictine monk traditionally credited with discovering Champagne. According to legend, Dom Pérignon exclaimed “Come quickly, I am tasting the stars!” with his first sip.

• There are approximately 50 million bubbles in a standard bottle of champagne.

• A popped champagne cork can reach speeds of around 40 mph.

• The pressure in a corked bottle of champagne is around 90 pounds per square inch, or roughly 6 atmospheres of pressure.
