Last-Minute New Years Eve Outfit Ideas To Ring In 2020

Christmas is just around the corner but it won’t be long before New Year’s Eve is here and that means: PARTY, PARTY, PARTY! New Year’s is the perfect time to dress up and show off your best, most sparkly outfit. But in all of our madness to prep for Xmas every year, most of us forget our New Year’s outfit until the last minute — but that’s definitely not the case year!

If you’re ready to plan your gorgeous look for welcoming in 2020, then look no further. These 11 gorgeous New Year’s outfits are full of sparkle and glam. Whether you’re looking for a dress that’s luscious velvet, soft satin or many, many sequins, we have all of the looks you want. Here, you’ll find just the right outfit to bid goodbye to 2019 and say a big, amazing HELLO to 2020!

1. Crushed Velvet Maxi Dress, $23

Forever 21

Is there anything more luxurious than a truly awesome velvet dress? No, indeed there is not. This maxi dress in gold is soft and decadent but also hella sexy thanks to the slit on your thigh as well as your cleavage. Wear this one if you want to be, ahem, a little more daring than usual.

2. Black Ponte Lace Bodycon Dress, $53

Asos

A bodycon dress is a great way to accent your shape and this one is going to look great on anybody. The lace at the top gives the dress a little something special while still keeping the LBD aesthetic for those who want to go classic yet elegant at the same time.

3. Ace of Spades Sequin Bodycon Dress, $67

Lulus

Sequins are a classic look for New Year’s and red is a color that we can all love forever and ever. The good news is that this chic mini dress is also available in gold and gunmetal gray if you want to go for a more subtle color.

4. Satin Wrap Dress, $27.99

Target

For those that are going to a fancier party that doesn’t require sequins or who simply want a dress that they can wear after the new year, then this satin beauty is the one for you. It’s gorgeous and would be super simple to dress up with some sparkly details that make it NYE-appropriate.

5. The Sparkle Maxi Dress, $129

Shein

If you’re looking for a dress that brings in the WOW factor, then this one’s just what you’ll want. It has a simple black top but the maxi skirt is absolutely to-die-for. The gorgeous purple flowers would look good on anyone, just make sure you’re tall enough (or wear high enough heels).

6. Diamond Sequin Dress, $24

Nastygal

Sequins are great for New Year’s Eve, but can especially be amazing when they create unique shapes that give your dress that little something extra. Sure, silver can be a simple color but these diamond shapes look even better. Definitely pair it with a red lip and black pumps, too.

7. Glittery Dress, $30

Nordstrom Rack

If you’re the kind of chica who prefer to show off some of your more unexpected assets (like your nicely toned back), then this dress is for you. It’s black but not even remotely a simple dress thanks to that sexy open back and the added sparkle.

8. Long Sleeve Sequin Sheath, $150

eloquii.com

If you aren’t a fan of being color but still want to wow in your sparkly splendor, then may I suggest this gorgeous dress perfect for plus-size girls? It’s not only PRETTY but also comfy AF. And did I mention that those silver/gold/emerald colors are great for basically any skin tone and hair color? Yes, you’re welcome.

9. Velvet Balloon-Sleeve Dress, $78

madewell.com

You can never have too many velvet dress options, which is why this balloon-sleeve dress is probably calling your name right now. Available in three different colors, this dress would be perfect over leggings or tights when you are celebrating in the cold.

Maluma Teams Up With Luxury Brand Balmain For This Must-Have Fashion Collection

Maluma Teams Up With Luxury Brand Balmain For This Must-Have Fashion Collection

It’s 2021 and we have no shortage of epic collaborations between some of the world’s biggest Latino stars and top fashion brands. Everyone from J Balvin and Bad Bunny to Cardi B and now Maluma have entered the fashion industry to sell a lifestyle. And people are buying!

Maluma and French fashion house Balmain bring us a limited-edition collaboration.

Colombian superstar Maluma has partnered with French fashion house Balmain to launch a limited edition collection that will be available from April 12 through June 1 in all Balmain stores, including brick and mortar and online.

The collection, which includes sneakers, blazers, t-shirts, pants and other ready-to-wear clothing, will also be available at Saks Fifth Avenue as of April 15.

The Balmain + Maluma line marks the first time ever the brand has designed a line with a celebrity. And it seems like the brand’s creative designer is pretty excited about the collab. Through photos on his Instagram, Olivier Rousteing referred to the reggaetón singer as his inspiration, captioned with supportive laudatory messages about merging their cultures and joint design process.

“Maluma, more than him being an incredible singer,” Rousteing notes, “[brings] a lot to the fashion community with his joy and his happiness and the fact that he’s always playing up his style from different kinds of houses from around the world, mixing different cultures as well… I think the collaboration with Maluma is obviously giving to Balmain and pushing the aesthetic more internationally.”

Maluma also seems to be pumped for the opportunity!

Although Balmain has featured other celebrities in advertising campaigns and runway shows, it has never actually enlisted a celebrity to help design a full, name-branded line.

The brand’s high profile, along with the haute-couture retail price of the collection, underscores how entrenched Maluma is now in the global fashion world and how valuable his endorsement and name is perceived by high fashion.

“It’s been one of my goals to work with a respected fashion house on a collection, but this journey was more exciting, as Olivier pushed me to design with him and sketch looks that I personally will wear off the stage and showcase high couture with a bit of Papi Juancho,” says Maluma, referencing both his album name and alter ego.

But if you want a piece of the collection be prepared to drop those coins.

Items in the Balmain + Maluma collection range from a black cotton T-shirt that retails for $495, to $1,500 high top sneakers to a $2,555 multi-color print bomber jacket.

Met Gala 2021 Is Happening And Amanda Gorman Is Set To Host The America-Themed Fashion Event

Met Gala 2021 Is Happening And Amanda Gorman Is Set To Host The America-Themed Fashion Event

It’s 2021 and the Met Gala is back this year – after being canceled in 2020 thanks to a pandemic – with superstar poet Amanda Gorman being eyed to host the fashion event of the year. Given the 23-year-old’s show-stopping performance at the inauguration, the theme fittingly will be a celebration of America and American designers.

The Met Gala will return in 2021 with a very special guest as host.

Vogue’s “Oscars of Fashion” famously takes place on the first Monday of May. However, this year it’s been pushed back to September 13, in hopes that life will have returned to something closer to normal by then.

Epic poet Amanda Gorman is reportedly in talks to co-host the event alongside Tom Ford, who is the academy’s president. The breakout star of President Biden’s inauguration, Gorman is on the cover of the magazine’s May issue and the subject of a relentlessly glowing profile inside.

The black-tie gala, which raises funds for Met’s Costume Institute, is normally fashion’s biggest night and sees guests from Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez and Cardi B to Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk and even Maluma.

The event was canceled in 2020 thanks to a global pandemic.

The world’s most glamorous party was canceled in 2020 because of COVID-19, which was (and still is) raging the planet at the time. There was a virtual event in place of the 2020 event, with celebs like Julia Roberts, Priyanka Chopra and Amanda Seyfried showing off their looks from home and stars like Mindy Kaling and Adam Rippon taking part in the #MetGalaChallenge, recreating looks from past years.

This year’s event will draw inspiration from all things USA.

The theme of this year’s Met Gala has not been announced, but Page Six says the night will be devoted to honoring America and American designers, following the 18-month-long COVID crisis in this country.

Recent past themes for the event have included “Camp: Notes on Fashion” (2019), “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” (2018), and “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between (2017). And don’t forget 2016, when Zayn Malik wore robot-arms to Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology.
