what to wear: a glam new year’s eve

New Year’s Eve is almost here, and when it comes to dressing for this much-anticipated holiday, glamorous is the way to go.  After all, it’s the very last day of 2015, so why wouldn’t we want to go out with a bang?

As we count down the days to the main event, it’s time to really hone in on what you are going to wear.  The clock may be ticking, but there is no need to fret because Coco Blanca has just the look you need to close out the year and enter 2016 looking beautiful.   We have put together an outfit that is sure to shine at Old Town Alexandria’s First Night.  This holiday ensemble is perfect whether you are watching the ball drop on television, on a romantic date, or spending the evening surveying the crowd for someone to smooch when the clock strikes midnight.


For an unforgettable New Year’s Eve look, we styled Alicia McCaslin of Tullebox in one of our favorite silky, silver dresses.  We love the understated elegance of this dress.  After years of the same flashy sequin looks we are so used to seeing, this sumptuous silk number is an easy choice.  The best part of this minimal dress is that it leaves you with endless accessory options!

I think we can all agree on the importance of incorporating a little sparkle on New Year’s Eve.  To amp up this outfit, we paired this dress with our gorgeous silver crystal earrings and one of our favorite baroque sea pearl bracelets.  These pieces add just enough of that desired New Year’s Eve sparkle without going overboard.  All she needs is to throw on a cashmere wrap or a silk scarf before she heads out into the cold. 

New Year’s Eve is just around the corner and if you are still in search of something fabulous to wear, come in and let us help you find that perfect dress for your evening.  Nothing is more exciting than toasting the close of a year and anticipating the opportunities and possibilities that come with the New Year.  Cheers to making 2016 even better that the last.

Platinum Silk Dress, $287.50, Baroque Sea Pearl Bracelet, $212.50, Silver and Crystal Earrings, $70, all available at Coco Blanca.
