NYE dressing up: capsule wardrobe edition vol.1

You probably might have guessed that I am not a person who likes dressing up at all, so all the formal and party occasions are a bit of a headache for me. Saying that, New Year’s Eve is coming up, which can be a little bit of a similar situation as well. Not sure how I’ll be spending mine yet, but if you are like me and hate dressing up, I decided to create my super simple party capsule wardrobe, which might give you an idea how you can comfortably dress for a party.

So, there will be two outfits & here is the first one! I chose to wear a red velvet dress - gotta have so velvet in your life - as a main part of the outfit. This, in my opinion, can be styled very differently so it’s quite a versatile piece.
To make it more ‘me’, I decided to pair it with some oxfords, sparkly socks & a blazer - those are the pieces that were already in my closet and I wear them regularly - score! To finish everything off, I put it together with a sequined clutch for that extra bit of shine. I believe that you could easily wear this dress with heels and that would be a completely different look. However, I am not a heel kinda gal, so for me a pair of flat shoes is just perfect and I do think this outfit is very party appropriate still. Do you agree?

To sum up, I only added one new piece to my wardrobe and I managed to look festive by pairing it with other bits that I already own. Absolutely love that & cannot wait to show you another outfit idea tomorrow!
