That being said, it’s important to pick a look that’s suitable for your surroundings (read: no miniskirts with your boyfriend’s family). To make sure this happens, we’ve gathered 5 ensembles based on potential brunch scenarios that’ll start your New Year off on the right foot.
Spending New Year’s Day with someone special? Lucky you. Impress your sweetie with a feminine frock and thigh-high boots. Accessorize with dainty jewelry and keep your makeup light.
Kitsap Thigh High Boot ($200)
Thankfully, your family is probably more excited to hear about your recent travels or New Year’s resolutions than to see your awesome brunch outfit, so keep it simple with printed pants, a denim jacket, and a large tote to bring home any unexpected gifts from mom and dad!
New Nolita Denim Jacket ($130)
Waterloo Denim Jeans ($118)
Large Leather Tote ($125)
There’s no greater sound than a chatter-filled room of your closest friends. If you’re lucky enough to wrangle everyone in the same place, you should have an outfit reflective of said greatness. We suggest a fashion-forward sweatshirt with boyfriend jeans and sling-back heels.
Ivory Sling-Back Heels ($795)
If you decide to bring the party to you (smart choice), include a sophisticated touch in your look, like a blazer and button-up. For the rest of your outfit, incorporate a statement piece such as embellished jeans. Because you’ll be running around the house, wear a comfortable shoe like boots, flats, or a low-heel.
