Emergency Fashion Fix: What'cha wearin' for NYE?

Alright. Less than 24 hours till New Year's Eve. Time to bid goodbye to 2011, and say hello to 2012. Whether it's to impress that hot new crush of yours, or to just have a good time, I think it's safe to say that everyone wants to look good on NYE.

So... Here comes the dreaded question: What are you wearing?

If you're a procrastinator (like me), who puts off planning your special NYE gear till the very last minute, and you've suddenly discovered that you can't find anything in your local shopping malls, don't fret. All you need,  is one basic wardrobe essential.

Basic tank tops. 

These are what I call the "Saviors of a Fashion Nightmare"
Especially useful when you have no idea what to wear. 
You can pair them with anything.... With a bit of creativity, that is. 
Plus, they're highly useful when you simply can't decide on what to wear.

With these babies, you can let your imagination fly. Here are a few suggestions:

I've probably repeated myself over this a thousand times, but I really can't help it. 
High waisted shorts, pants, or anything for that matter, are very versatile. If you have one in your wardrobe, USE THEM. Pair them with your basic tank, add a few accessories, pull up a pair of really nice heels (or cute flats, whichever you prefer), and you're good to go. 

But, if you're already bored with the waist skirts and pants you have in your wardrobe, here's an idea:

Turn your favourite dress into a brand new skirt. It's a really clever way to revamp an old dress, and look FAB on NYE.

I got this idea from Miss TiffanyMA on YouTube the other day, and I thought to myself: "Hey, why not?"

Check out her video on how to do it. It's really quick, and don't worry, you won't need to cut up your dress. 

Oh, and if you think it's going to be a little bit drafty, then add a nice jacket or blazer to your ensemble. Or, you could get creative and use a nice boyfriend shirt as a light jacket.

But, if the high waisted idea isn't your thing, then grab a pair of really nice jeans, add some accessories, pull up your gorgeous kicks, and voila!

Instant chic and ready to usher in 2012, in style. 

In my opinion, looking good on NYE (or any occasion for that matter), doesn't necessarily mean buying a new outfit. Sometimes, all it takes is a little bit of creativity, and some accessories. So really, take a real good look at your wardrobe before you panic this New Year's Eve, and let your imagination go wild. 

Till then. Au revoir, beautiful people. xoxo
