What To Wear: New Year’s Eve

We can all agree that New Year’s Eve is a time to shine. Whether you’re ringing in the new year out on the town or staying in with family and friends, a little bit of sparkle can go a long way.

Allexis from Life of a Coy Fish shows us how she styles her favorite Aerie finds to watch the ball drop.

What inspired Allexis’s Looks:
Hey friends! When it comes to NYE we all know there are really only two ways to celebrate: out on the town with friends, or snuggled in at home with loved ones. To make your New Year’s Eve a little easier I put together a look for you all for each way to celebrate. I don’t know about you guys but when I’m ringing in the new year with a night out on the town I want to be warm, comfortable, and cute. I don’t want to have to worry about tugging a dress down all night or having freezing bare legs. These cute sequined leggings are THE perfect piece to meet those needs without having to compromise looking great!

To complete the look and keep it fun, I paired these bad boys with a fun printed sweater and wedges that are comfy enough to dance the night away in. Sequins are really a no brainer when it comes to NYE and some other fun ways to style some cute sequined leggings would be with a fun graphic tee and classic pair of pumps, or with a boyfriend blazer and plain white tee. The possibilities are endless and there’s really no way to go wrong with these leggings!

For a night in, watching the ball drop on Times Square on the good old television, the key to a cute look is keeping it cozy while bringing in fun sparkly elements that make it so it doesn’t just feel like another boring night at home! This sequined bralette layered underneath this soft henley is the perfect way to add that bit of New Year’s fun while these cozy little knit PJ shorts keep things casual and comfy!

New Year’s Eve Essentials

New Year’s Eve is a symbol of both the last hurrah of the holiday party season, and the start of a new and exciting year. To celebrate, we’re definitely planning on looking our best for the countdown to midnight. It’s the best excuse to bring out our least practical (but prettiest!) party dresses and dance all night!

Aerie’s fit and style expert, Jenny Altman, is here to tell you why the Aerie Bare Bra is your secret weapon to help you ring in the new year!

The Aerie Bare Bra is an NYE essential.

The Bare Bra will support long past the stroke of midnight!

Why It’s a Must-Have:

The Bare Bra is the ultimate in holiday solutions. This bra goes under every top or dress you want to wear, but don’t have the right bra for. It goes under strapless, halter, one shoulder and even under backless dresses. The woman who invented this bra is brilliant!

Which One to Buy?

Aerie offers both pushup and lightly lined options – both are great staples to have, depending on your preference. In terms of color, nude goes under every single thing you will ever wear. But black is just a little prettier, so if you often wear dark tops, go black. Or buy both as investment pieces and wear them a million times each.

 What Size to Buy?

Buy these bras by cup size as you normally would. If you aren’t sure of your size, head to an Aerie store for an expert fitting.

 Quick Tips for Wearing the Bare Bra:

OK, these can be a little tricky to put on the first time around..so listen here. No deodorant, fragrance, powder, baby oil or moisturizer where the bra sits on the body. If you don’t follow these rules, the bra may not stick as well as it should…you don’t want it to end up around your waist! Take the plastic liner out of the bra cups first. Stand tall in front of a mirror and rest each breast into the cup and hoist the bra up a bit so that it fits snug against the body. If your bra has a side wing, remove the plastic from each side wing and stick it securely to your side. These side wings are amazing and give a little extra support to this backless bra.

Caring for Your Bare Bra 101:

Want to make sure your Bare Bra lasts? They require a little extra TLC than your average pushup. After you wear the bra, wash it in the sink with water and a mild soap. Leave it out to fully dry. Once dry, put the plastic liner back inside the bra and store the bra back inside the box you got it in. This keeps the shape and the adhesive lasting a long while!

A Few Last-Minute Quick Tips:

My other NYE secret weapon are Outta Sight undies! They are the best for all of those knit, jersey, or fitted holiday dresses. Undie lines are the worst and these undies are smooth as can be!

Finally, keep a few strips of Apparel Tape in your bag at all times. For any button that pops off, hem that falls, strap that slips, or other fashion emergencies, this is your best fashion friend.

Thanks for the tips, Jenny! Have a Happy New Year, Aerie girls!
