After making plans the next step is finding something to wear…
Start Planning Early
Figuring out what you’ll be wearing on New Year’s Eve is annoying, especially if you wait till the last minute. To avoid stressing out, get yourself on Pinterest… ASAP! They have so many GREAT ideas for hair, nails, makeup, outfits, etc.
Give Yourself Plenty of Time to Get
Avoid rushing… If you think it will take you 3 hours to get ready, than give yourself 4. Starting early allows you to take your time and relax before leaving the house. It also prevents you from becoming the person everyone has to wait on.
Women: Know Thy Heel Limit or Pack a Pair of Flats
Is there anything worse than watching a woman in pain because of her heels? If you can’t walk in a pair of shoes with confidence, then don’t wear those shoes. If you must wear those shoes, then pack a backup pair. Dr. Scholl’s offers a product called Fast Flats that are perfect for this situation.
After a LONG Holiday Season… take time and give yourself a little TLC. The days before 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. Just remember to book early!
1. New Year’s Eve is the busiest night of the year for Uber, Lyft, & cab drivers. When the bars close for the night, everyone will be trying to find a ride and you could be waiting a long time. Plus, you don’t have to worry about who will be the designated driver. If you get a room, everyone can have a good time!
2. Getting a hotel room is less expensive than a ticket, accident, or DUI – and you know the cops will be out in full force.
3. A hotel room makes it easy to get ready before your event or party and if you forget something or want to change your outfit, you can bring options!
4. Having a room is also an opportunity for romance (wink, wink). Nothing is better than alcohol and an evening in a hotel room.
5. FREE BREAKFAST! Most hotels offer FREE breakfast in the morning! It could be the cure all for your hangover needs!
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.
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.
