New years glam- Velvet dress

diamond choker

And just like that we’re now looking at 2017. It’s been a crazy year for us, and we can’t believe how fast 2016 went by and are thankful for all the wonderful things this year has bought along. We’re all set to welcome the New Year with some party glam. This is one of those times you should not be afraid to be creative and go all out with your look.  From sequins dresses to velvet jumpsuits, there isn’t one right way to do new year’s style.

Velvet has been making its presence felt everywhere since the beginning of 2016. I love how luxurious velvet looks and brings out deeper tones of any color. The fabric can be seen doing rounds in every style. You can spot everything from jumpsuits, pants, blazers, skirts in velvet that will up your style game. We’ve been super obsessed with everything velvet!! It’s been one of our favorite trends for the year and as much as I love sequin/shimmer I had to go the velvet way this time around.

I picked this dress online on www.Asos.com . Honestly, I’m still getting used to online shopping; I have always been more traditional in my shopping ways ever since I can remember. I always find myself not being confident about the fit and also how certain items would look on my body type but asos has got me good. I simply haven’t been able to get off the website and have been ordering from them over 3 months now and it’s safe to say that I’ve gotten over my fear of buying clothes online and haven’t gone wrong so far (fingers crossed).

Getting back to the look, I instantly fell in love with this dress by club L and I had to go for this deep, emerald green color out of all the options available. I love how the dress exudes subtle glam just by itself but I just couldn’t do subtle for the year end so I decided to add this diamond studded statement choker from Aldo to the look along with embellished heels from Nine west to complete this look.
