WHAT'S COOLER THAN BEING COOL? ICE COLD ALRIGHT ALRIGHT ALRIGHT ALRIGHT ALRIGHT ALRIGHT ALRIGHT ALRIGHT ALRIGHT
With that appropriate Outkast reference out of the way, it's time to talk fashion. You already have the New Year's dress ready to roll (I'm guessing it's some ostentatious sequin sparkler á la Sonia Rykiel or perhaps a slinky body-con number from Nasty Gal or Anthony Vaccarello).
And the shoe choice is glaringly obvious - the understated Chanel slingback or some sex-kitten sky-high heel will do the trick (now might be the time to whip out those six-inch Louboutins you bought yourself for Christmas).
But then it's time to snap back to reality and you remember that it's 22 degrees outside. You're gonna need a coat, boo. It's really not cute to freeze to death. You know what IS cute? When your jacket is the finishing touch, the cherry on top, the pièce de résistance that makes your outfit.
So it's time to hunt down the perfect jacket. Said jacket could already be hiding in the crevices of your closet - you just never thought you could wear that coat for such a special night. But it's almostttt 2016 and the rules of dressing are - there are no rules!
You know that trench coat you only wear to look polished for client meetings? Well, said coat looks less businesswoman and more bad bitch when it's paired with a little white dress. Knock it out of the park with red pumps and a flashy bag and you've got quite the look, missy.
A trendylicious duster coat (Nasty Gal and Forever21 have my favorite - many under $100!) is the perfect compliment for a micro-mini black dress. Pair with a kitten heel or a thigh-high boot. You're good to go.
And if you're dressing down in distressed denim and a white tee for the big night out, dress it up with a statement necklace (I love Dannijo and BaubleBar) and add that faux-fur jacket you haven't worn since last winter.
And if you start second-guessing your look, start chugging 5-dollar champagne while getting ready. You'll like your look a whole lot more, truuussssst me.
But if you really want an excuse to buy a new jacket, I wholeheartedly endorse your decision to TREAT YO'SELF and tracked down the coolest coats to wear over your NYE dress below!
