I have received twelve+ Ask Sammy queries begging me for new looks for New Year's Eve, so I decided to tackle them all in one champagne cork pop. There is a classic dress code for women on New Year's Eve: either something black, something sequiny, or both.
I'm sticking to the sequins, but instead of going the traditional black, gold or silver sequin color route, I'm going to be an advocate for the unexpected with colorful sequins that haven't made an appearance in your house since your big sis or mom hit their proms back in the 80's.
Instead of blending in in a sea of sequential sequins, stand out in cool pops of light catching colors that beg to be noticed.
This Blue, Hot Pink Striped or Purply Sequin Knit Mini from Forever 21 will fit the bill, and they're all $29 or under, so you can blow all your Christmas cash on multiple champagne refills instead. Add some black/gray/silver tights for warmth, a band tee and some clunky booties for edge and you'll look hot enough to burn the midnight oil when the clock strikes twelve.
Have a Shiny, Happy New Year people.
