Bring in Some Retro Style With a Fringed Dress for New Year’s Eve
If you’re looking for something fun and unique to wear this New Year’s Eve, why not try a fringed dress? This flapper-inspired style was designed for dancing and parties, and is a great choice for the biggest party of the year! It’s also a very feminine and sexy style that you’re sure to love.
To choose a fringed dress for New Year’s Eve, you need to shop early. The style isn’t always the most typical so you may not be able to readily find it in a local department store. Chances are you’ll need to go online and find it in a dressier store or even on eBay. Shop around for the right size so you know it will be flattering but loose enough for dancing.
A fringed dress is typically dressy enough on its own but you can add more style by choosing a red or gold or silver color. These are great for New Year’s Eve and will keep you from blending in with the many other little black dresses you’ll see at the party. Red will also give you some nice color in your face which is good for New Year’s Eve, when your summer tan has faded.
Accessorizing your fringed dress can be tricky because the fringes are going to be dressy on their own. For a real flapper look, choose long beads or chain necklaces that go down to your belly, and wrap them around your neck once or twice for added visual interest. Many flappers would also tie their long beads so there was a knot in the middle; this kept them from flying off when they were dancing.
Long, bold earrings can also be fun for New Year’s Eve and will draw the eyes up. You might also add some bangle bracelets, or for a very glamorous look, choose long gloves in a complementary color. If this is too busy for you, wear your fringed dress alone without jewelry.
Another great way to add some fringes without a true flapper style is to choose a dress with a solid bodice and a fringed skirt. The fringes add movement when you dance or walk but if they’re covering just half your dress, they won’t be overwhelming. For a very sexy look, you might also have a short skirt with longer fringes or fringes that go up a long slit.
Be sure you wear the right heels with your fringed dress. If you want to dance, keep them low and thick so you can balance. This will help your entire party outfit to look appropriate and you can have a true flapper girl style this New Year’s Eve.
