Ring in the New Year in PI Style!

2012 is fast approaching!
Will you be attending a New Year’s event? If so, do you have your style all figured out?
On Seventeen.com the editors offered some fashion tips, but I think the sampling is completely inappropriate for teens.
As you can see, the examples are primarily minis and stilettos.
So I’ve decided to present you girls with some Project Inspired style ideas to ring in the new year. These are just some fun items that peaked my interest as I browsed around online.
This dress is so fun and glitzy. It’s perfect for ringing in the new year.
Note: I only recommend the strapless feature to girls over 17 years of age. I think that a strapless dress can look great on the right person.
I also only suggest wearing a strapless dress to those who have a small bust. If you like this dress but have a large bust, consider a similar style with straps or short sleeves.
Another option would be to wear a bolero jacket or shrug or a sheer shawl wrap with this dress. The length of this dress should be at the knee or just above it.
Red is a great color for a New Year’s dress, I think. This style is so beautiful. I love it because it’s fashioned like a dancer’s dress.
When wearing dresses or skirts, I always recommend wearing nylons.
If you cannot find a dress for the occasion, consider the always reliable black skirt, nice jeans or pants. Whether tailored or jersey, a black flowing knee-length skirt or black pants can be paired with a glimmering top. Check out the following two examples.
A ballet shoe or a flat shaped like a ballet shoe is always adorable when matched with an elegant dress, especially for girls and young teens. I don’t think that it’s appropriate for a teen to wear a stiletto shoe. Instead, consider a shoe with a little heel.
And don’t forget to accessorize. Accessories bring an outfit together. Just don’t allow them to outshine your ensemble.
Small and simple is always the best way to go when it comes to jewelry. The cubic zirconia hoops below add a little sparkle to the head area, and if your outfit shimmers, all the better. Glitzy purses and clutches are always a fun addition to an evening ensemble.
I hope my tips were helpful and that they remind you that modest can still be beautiful. I wish you all a wonderful break into the new year.
Be safe, be smart, and have fun.
