Or an equally chic top/skirt combo, but you catch my drift. If ever there were a time to dress up, this is it.

I have been all about cozy yet chic lately — and NYE is no exception.  It has been surprisingly chilly in LA these last few weeks, so weather-appropriate layers for NYE are non-negotiable this year. Velvet has a very obvious sumptuous quality – perfect for special nights, not to mention its a heavier fabric that will naturally keep you warm.

I cannot get over this velvet maxi dress in its rich emerald hue. The deep v back is straight up to die for! Can you believe this pretty lady was only $30? Still can’t believe it myself. Paired with a cropped leather jacket, it tones the whole outfit down and adds a hint of edge. You could also channel your inner Marilyn and opt for a faux fur topper (this dress practically screams old Hollywood glamour with the right accessories). Add a dose of sparkle by finishing things off with vintage drop earrings and a great cocktail ring.

If you’re still on the hunt for your NYE outfit, check out a few of my current favorites here, here, & here, all perfect dresses for ringing in 2016.
