I’m visiting NYC for NYE and have no idea how to dress for the party that I’m attending. Not sure if it’s fancy or not and if I should wear a sexy dress, jeans, top, etc. If I’m wearing a dress, I need to get a tan for my legs! Please help!

Dear Jennifer,

As you may know by now, my motto is always better to be over-dressed than under-dressed! That way, you always look like you have somewhere fancier to go and you’re prepared for anything.

In NYC especially, you can’t go wrong with wearing a little black with a little glitz and glam. With classic pieces like these, you can even wear them again and again, so you won’t fall into the trap of splurging on an outfit you will wear once.

I also follow the motto, leave a little to the imagination. With separates like a cute blouse and flirty skirt, or a fun feathery dress or even a jumpsuit, you’ll be sure to wow and impress more than the gal in the body-con dress next to you.

My last motto for the day, is less is more when it comes to the bling. Opt for one eye-catching sparkling piece—whether it’s the dress itself or your necklace. You don’t want to outshine that ball dropping.

Whatever you end up wearing, please do not go the tanning salon route if you show some leg. Opt for one of my favorite self tanners or this lotion with a bit of color that will make you beat the winter whites.

Have a fabulous and stylish New Years!
