Easy New Year’s Eve Outfits from Your Closet

You know by now that I’m a big proponent of not going out and buying new outfits for special events. As long as you have a fully stocked closet of pieces you love, there’s no reason to spend money on what you don’t need!

That’s why today I’m mixing and matching more pieces from the Winter 2017 GYPO Style Challenge to shop my closet and create New Year’s Eve looks.  Whether you’re spending a quiet evening in or going out to dinner, there’s an outfit here that will work for you.

And if you’re totally stumped for outfit ideas, remember this one simple rule:  All black ALWAYS works!  Add a little leopard and bling to make it totally party appropriate.

Outfit #1

Black Ruffled Sweater + Black Velvet Pants + Statement Necklace + Leopard Booties

It’s Your Turn:  Will you be getting glam and glitzy for NYE or cozy and comfy?

Rediscover Me Challenge – Starts January 2nd

If you’ve been around here awhile, you know that the new year means the start of another round of the Rediscover Me Challenge – my 28 day life coaching program that helps you get the new year started off right! Part of the reason I created this program was due to women in the GYPO Style Challenge asking for something more. After rediscovering confidence through style, many of them were ready to dig deep and work on other areas of their lives…and it’s been nothing short of AMAZING.  Since it’s start, over 1,000 women have experienced incredible results and many have described it as “truly life changing”.

The program includes 28 days of effective coaching exercises – all delivered in bite-sized pieces perfect for working through with your morning cup of coffee.  Rediscover Me focuses on figuring out and creating more of what you want out of life. For four weeks, participants get daily videos and printable exercises filled with coaching techniques to dig deep, set goals and create the life you want. You can sign up for three free days of the challenge at this link

It also includes a private Facebook group where participants can get support and share their challenges and transformations.  The best part?  Once you join, you’re always a member.  You can go back and do the challenge over again anytime you need a tune up.  Some women go through it two or more times per year.

We’ll be starting the next round LIVE together on January 2nd, 2018 and it’s ON SALE for 60% off the regular price of $99. You can get lifetime access for the lowest price ever of $39 if you sign up through 1/31/18.

  • Alison, you always offer such wonderful style inspiration! I am loving all of these outfits! By the way, you are featured on my recent link up post as one of the most featured bloggers this year! Thanks so much for always stopping by and linking up. I appreciate all of your support. And I wish you many blessings in the new year.


    • Thank you so much Shelbee. I love all your positivity and wish you all the best for the new year! 🙂

      • Thank you, Alison! And now I am making my rounds as Ada’s co-host for her Thursday Moda Link Up, so thanks for joining her link up as well!

  • Great ideas! I love the coverage, so many NYE outfits I see can only be worn in warm climates. We won’t be going anywhere this year as the temps are frigid! 0 degrees for NYE!

  • Jennifer Hoffman

    I was just thinking, I hope Alison posts some NYE outfits! Lol thank you!!

  • Love the black ruffled sweater!

  • love those boots with leopard print! Just so cute!!!! great selection!

  • I love these ideas! We sort of alternate between glam and cozy on NYE, but this year it’s a little of both because kids are coming along! Love the peplum sweater with the leopard booties. So cute!

  • So much cuteness in these NYE looks!!! I’ll be keeping it cozy and saving my more glam looks for nights out:) Those leopard booties are perfect BTW!
