It’s pretty unbelievable it’s almost 2016! One of my personal goals for 2015 was growing my blog and staying more consistent with it as my main creative outlet. If you’ve kept up with me from the beginning, I originally started Syma Speaks as a print magazine while in 3rd grade. I’ve always had a love for fashion and writing, so being able to share that is very special to me. I hope to share more of what inspires me in 2016, here’s to the new year & new content!
Now let’s talk NYE. Your plans might not be set in stone yet (always stressful) but your outfit totally can be!
I’m usually very into a metallic or sequin moment for New Year’s because those pieces aren’t always the easiest to wear post holiday fun. However, this year I’m feeling something a little different; faux fur.
I have never been a fur person…I attempted rocking a vest a few years back but couldn’t totally commit. Then came the fur collar which I really enjoy for it’s versatility and ease into the trend.
Perhaps it’s the power of Instagram but all I have wanted these first few months of winter is a faux fur moment. This jacket is from a favorite, Aritzia. I love the creamy hue as you know I love me some neutrals.
Underneath this statement jacket, I wanted to keep it simple with this black wrap top layered with a champagne gold metallic tank for a touch of sparkle.
Now what’s my perfect NYE collab? Faux fur X velvet.
I rocked these Velvet X Jeggings by American Eagle Outfitters in my last holiday post and can’t get enough of the texture. If you don’t have a little bit of velvet in your closet, I highly suggest getting yourself a pair of these!
You can never go wrong with #allblackeverything, this monotone look allows my jacket to not compete with the rest of outfit.
I couldn’t exactly say goodbye to sequins for New Year’s so I found a way to work them in with this vintage clutch! It’s a great way to add a bit of shine without going over the top.
I completed this #OOTN with my nude pumps from Mango and I’m ready to ring in the New Year!
Cheers to 2016 and you recreating this outfit! Hope I inspired you a bit this past year, and can’t wait to continue the fun very soon!
Thank you so much for your support!
