New Year’s Eve outfits
The New Year is just arround the corner. We all don’t like to wear the same outfit in the same setting or the same crowd twice. Thus, what to wear on New Year’s Eve often calls for a new dress. However, it should be affordable and not break the bank, especially, when we just had to spent a fortune on Christmas gifts for the entire (growing) family.
Here are my favorites that are affordable pieces and nevertheless designer items. I found them at StyleWe an online store that helps young designers to sell their pieces.

Affordable designer party dresses
StyleWe in Party Dresses: A-THENA Long Sleeve Party Cocktail Bodycon Stand Collar Elegant Beaded Dress
StyleWe A-THENA Pink Sheath Daily Paneled Elegant Midi Dress
What I like about the pieces in the above photos: Who doesn’t love velvet? The burgundy is dark and hence has a slimming effect as do the vertical details. When you love (or don’t mind) wearing shapewear, this bodycon dress permits showing off your curves. A sexy look without the flesh show. The pink sheath can also be worn for a work dinner, church or civil wedding or with a fancy head at a horse race. This means you get a dress for several occassion that typically have different attendees.
Gowns for a formal ball or the opera
StyleWe A-THENA Paneled Ball Gown Elegant Maxi-dress. Also available in classic black.
StyleWe In prom collection: Misslook Red Elegant Evening Maxi Dress
What I like about these gowns: The royal blue gown nicely covers the upper arms with its 3/4 sleeves. In Royal blue it is a headturner. In black, it is of timeless elegance. Both work for a Military Ball, the opera or even a formal wedding. The red gown features the trendy cape look that I adore. Of course, wearing red and the cape trend will be remembered. Thus, I would bring it to consignment in the New Year before the ball season starts. Sure, the cost-per-wear is a bit high, but still much cheaper than renting.
Cocktails or dinner at a ski resort
StyleWe In What’s New: Tie-Neck Velvet Pleated Elegant Maxi Dress
StyleWe In What’s New: Misslook Floral Embroidered Elegant Midi Dress
Why I like these dresses: The tie-neck velvet beauty on the left can later be worn to a Christening or winter afternoon wedding. It is timeless and covers midlife problem zones like the arms. I would wear the tie open with a short pendant necklace to show off my collar bone. So understated sexy. The embroidered LBD also works for other occassions like dinner at a vacation resort and dancing. It is a classic with a nice ethnic inspired twist. And black and white is always in style.
