Never Fear! Your 2019 New Year’s Eve Style Guide Is Here!

Whether your year was good or bad, most people always look forward to watching the ball drop, and the birth of a new year. New Year’s Eve is always buzzing with excitement, merriment, and a plethora of parties. With Christmas over and the New Year right around the corner, now is the time to start planning that last minute outfit for the evening’s festivities. But don’t panic; we’ve got you covered! The following are just a few of the trends we really love for New Year’s Eve this year.

CORAL IS IN! 

The official Pantone color of 2019 is Living Coral. Bright and attention grabbing, anything you wear in this shade will make every head turn when you walk into the room. Boldly go forth into the New Year, be on trend when the clock strikes midnight, and wear it proudly and with flair!

 

MAKE A STATEMENT WITH BOLD EARRINGS

Play up that little black dress with a colorful, fun pair of earrings. We especially love ones that dangle. Tassels, chandeliers, and pom-poms—the possibilities are endless!

BE ON THE PROWL IN ANIMAL PRINT

Animal prints are coming back in a big way in 2019! Dress shoes like this chic leopard print bootie from Pierre Dumas give off a cool, rock star vibe. They definitely add pizzazz to an all or mostly black look, especially with skinny black slacks, a button-up shirt, and a long, colorful scarf draped around your neck like you’re a band member of Aerosmith. Best of all, you’ll be able to keep on wearing them long after the last round of party streamers is history—perfect for the office, a power lunch with the girls, or anytime you want to feel like a force to be reckoned with! You can even pair these with jeans for an instant style upgrade anytime. Bonus points for wearing leopard or zebra print in bright, colorful hues; also a hot trend this coming year.

ALL THAT JAZZ 

If vintage vibes, 1920’s-themed parties, or Victorian looks are more your thing, there are numerous shoe options! Comfortiva’s Angelique and the Bewitch by L’Artiste are only but a couple of options if you love a look from yesteryear.

 COMMAND
ATTENTION IN A DARING JUMPSUIT

Elegant yet edgy, look like a boss in a jumpsuit this New Year’s Eve. A pair of high heels compliments them perfectly!

The one shoulder trend is also in the forecast for 2019, so accessorize that bare arm with a dainty bracelet, or a gold wristwatch to countdown ‘til midnight.

CLASSY AND COMFORTABLE IN FLATS 

What do you wear if you don’t want to suffer in heels? Flats! Metallics are always in for New Year’s Eve, and you can’t go wrong with gold! The Maloree by Comfortiva is a perfect option for your party ensemble. However, if you’d prefer something more subtle, neutrals can also be worn. The key to making flat shoes in basic neutral tones work for New Year’s is to make sure they’re not completely plain. Go for pretty ballet flats with clever embellishments that add style, visual appeal, and interest to your party look. Think faux gemstones, fringe, decorative folds, regal medallions, or graceful beaded clusters! The more unique the embellishment, the better.

MAKE A STATEMENT WITH METALLICS

When you think of truly iconic New Year’s Eve looks, your mind instantly thinks of glamorous ensembles that sparkle and shine. There’s no time like the New Year to literally look positively golden, so, if you’ve been wanting to embrace the ever-popular metallic trend, now would be the ideal time to get on board. Add a flashy dose of glimmer to a more subtle ensemble, or polish off an all-metallic look to perfection. It’s up to you!

GIVE ‘EM THE OLD RAZZLE DAZZLE

A winter party presents the perfect opportunity to channel your inner snow queen, and New Year’s Eve is definitely no exception. Some of this season’s hottest looks in dress shoes take concepts like sparkle, shimmer, and glitter to exciting new heights, with features like gemstone detailing and glamorous beads that catch the light in all the right ways. The Silver 4 by Valenti Franco is a sparkly slingback heel that will definitely make a statement with a slinky evening gown. Don’t miss your chance to add it to your most stunning holiday looks this season!

These options are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to rocking out New Year’s Eve in style. What will you be wearing when you ring in 2019?

Conquer the Holidays in Joan of Arctic Boots!

Most of us usually love shopping for winter boots, but shopping for a pair of boots for inclement weather isn’t quite as fun. There are a lot of functional – not fashionable – options for snow boots on the shoe market today, but finding a pair with function and fashion can be discouraging. Many times we just give up and get the same boring, clunky, furry pair that have been around forever. Be different this winter, and purchase a pair of snow boots that have style and keep your feet warm and dry on those blustery winter days.

Houser Shoes has a great selection of functional and fashionable women’s winter boots. However, it’s Sorel’s Joan of Arctic Boots that steal the spotlight this season. Cute and stylish, they protect your feet from the snow and cold, winter weather. They also are spectacular holiday gifts! The Joan of Arctic line comes in many different styles:

 

Joan of Arctic

The classic Joan of Arctic is ideal for snowy days. With suede uppers, a waterproof vulcanized rubber shell, and a faux fur cuff, this functional boot is guaranteed to keep your feet warm and cozy without sacrificing style, and comes in a variety of colors!

 

Wedge II

Take on the world in these 3 inch wedge booties! Made with waterproof full-grain leather and featuring a removable EVA footbed, these shoes transition well from the office to the street.

 

 

 

Wedge II Shearling

This ultra-cute bootie has the same features as the Wedge II, but with an added microfleece lining and genuine shearling trim. Imagine a pair of these nestled underneath your tree on Christmas morning to surprise your loved one with! 

 

Wedge II Tall

Walk tall in these sleek knee high boots! Great traction, ash brown full-grain leather and oiled suede upper, and a 13 ¼ inch shaft height make you stand out from the crowd. These are perfect for when you want a bit of sass in your stride, and a more stable 3 inch heel in winter weather. The embossed Sorel logo on the back of the calf make these boots look even more sharp.

 

Wedge II Chelsea

If a bootie that’s a little more tame is closer to your style, look no further than the classy Chelsea! Stretch goring ensures a secure fit. These are perfect to kick back and relax in at casual holiday gatherings.

 

 

This year don’t settle for the typical boring snow boot. Instead, buy a pair of winter weather boots that are not only functional, but are fashionable, fun and comfortable as well. Check out the Houser Shoes selection of Sorel boots at http://www.housershoes.com/
