Shining in 2018
Ready to let go of all of the holiday fashion? I'm not.
The holidays are over; however; I’m bringing some sparkle into 2018. After trying on endless party looks during Christmas and New Years, one stands alone as a favorite piece to take away from the season. I personally don’t think that fun or extravagant clothing is limited to just the holidays. “It’s the happiest time of the year,” according to most people during the holidays, but why can’t you bring a little cheer into the rest of the year?
This beaded romper from River Island is by far my most favorited item to re-wear countless times into the new year. There are endless styles that you can bring back in a new and fresh way for the new year. I styled this romper with over the knee boots for a more casual look. It's currently freezing in New York so adding some tights or a long coat will finish off a shorter hemline. If you have a beaded top or skirt, try pairing it with denim! It really lowers the fancy factor and looks super chic. Of all of the brands I've worked with so far, River Island definitely has the most well made embellished or beaded items for the price point. They hold up really well and are super unique pieces. I've linked below some of my favorite River Island embellished pieces for you to shop. Bring on the party 2018!
Here's the styling breakdown for how to re-wear your holiday pieces:
