I’m not going to tell you all about the dresses / outfits you need for New Years Eve, though if you still haven’t found something yet, then check out my picks below. There’s still time!

Now that I’m older, wiser, and a mom, I’m over sacrificing comfort for fashion. I want both. I’m going to share with you my tricks how to keep warm and stylish in a festive frock. Of course some bubbly may help, but here are some sartorial hacks to dress for the occasion without freezing your tush off for your New Years Eve. 

[1] Layer a turtleneck under your dress

I know it may seem casual, but you’d be surprised how a black turtleneck can turn a sexy dress into a well, interesting and still sexy dress. 

This one is so basic, in a good way, that you can wear it all season long too.

[2] Heat Tech Tights

If you don’t know, now you know. Heat tech tights are basically how I  survive winters in NYC. I even layer these under my jeans on the coldest days. It really does keep your body heat in and makes a hug difference—but no one will be able to tell. 

[3] Over The Knee Boots

Along with Heat Tech, OTK boots are my go-to way to dress up in the winters while keeping my legs toasty. These boots are a splurge, but are worth every penny with the amount of wear I get out of them, not to mention how comfortable they are to wear all night. I found a few pairs for half the price too. You can try out a similar more affordable pair (trust me they’re still worth the investment with the cost per wear).

[4] Add A Fun Sock

If you’re like me and just can’t do nude stockings socks are a great way to add a little warmth and a fun surprise to your look. Try something like these glitter socks coming out of your booties or these net socks with your heels.

[5] Don’t wear a dress. Try pants / a jumpsuit.

Pants or a jumpsuit can be just as dressy if done right. Look for a tuxedo or satin style pant or a dressy jumpsuit and you’ll be comfortable, warm and stylish!

Cheers and have a happy, stylish and warm New Year!
