This Is How New York Girls Wear a Sparkly Dress

If you didn't think there was a way to pull off a sparkly dress without looking completely cheesy, think again. Alexa Chung just proved that it is entirely possible to look cool and stylish while wearing a sparkly dress (in Chung's case, a gold lamé one). 

Chung hosted a dinner with AG in New York last night in support of HeforShe, and she opted to wear a festive slip dress from her friend Harley Viera-Newton's line, HVN. To add a bit of edge to the dress and make it more "NYC girl" (her adopted hometown), Chung buttoned an AG denim jacket over the dress and added seasonally appropriate black tights (a Chung favorite) and a pair of Western-inspired black leather mid-shin boots. The resulting outfit is festive enough for a holiday or New Year's Eve party but chill enough for a date night or girls' night out.
