“It’s New Year’s Eve and I have so many things to wear!”—said no one ever. When parties start filling up the social calendar at the end of the year, most of us run out and buy an entire outfit to help celebrate—but Lady Slider’s Tara Michie prefers to invest in statement-making footwear instead. Here, she styles three perfect looks for three very different New Year’s Eve parties (and, don’t worry, one of them involves staying in!).
The Location: A beach party
The Shoe: Women’s Flatform Universal in Silver
Celebrating the New Year on the beach is a pretty common tradition in Hawaii. I decided to style my Flatform Originals with a Mister Zimi dress and a bottle of champagne (naturally). The Flatform sandals are perfect for the sand and combining them with a colorful mu’umu’u style dress makes for a perfect New Year’s Eve beach outfit for a Hawaii celebration.
The Location: Dinner and dancing
The Shoe: Women’s Foxy Boots
I love wearing boots as an alternative to heels, especially when you’re out on the dance floor (I hate getting my feet stomped on by other dancers). I am constantly aspiring to have effortless style— I never want to look like I am trying too hard and always want to be comfortable in what I am wearing. I paired my Foxy boots with a jumpsuit by local designer Virginia Paresa and all of my favorite jewelry. The boots are sleek, simple, have little heel but are still incredibly comfortable.
The Location: A house party
I usually like to dress down for house parties without losing my personal style, so I decided to wear the Teva X HonestlyWTF Original Universal to give my outfit some extra bling! I like to add a pop of color or a little extra somethin’ somethin’ to an otherwise plain outfit, and having a DIY sandal is the perfect way to keep my originality.
