Jeans are the perfect thing to wear on New Year’s Eve because it can get rough out there on the biggest partying night of the year. It’s no place for a delicate dress or silk pants. You need something rugged that will withstand spilled drinks, slushy snow, and lunges (you never know).
But that doesn’t mean you can’t look festive as you-know what. A dramatic velvet top will take your jeans to the next level and start the new year off with the appropriate amount of festive feeling. I’m 100% obsessed with this crazy-ruffled situation from Vatanika, and it’s on sale! Just in case the most dramatic ruffles ever are not in your comfort zone, I’ve provided plenty of subtler velvet options that will get the job done quite nicely. Happy New Year!
