New Years Breakfast Outfit
After you count down the New Year, drink the token champaign, and eat your good luck marzipan pig (google this tradition if it is new to you) you will have arrived in the year 2015. What will 2015 hold in store for you? For your wardrobe? Make New Years Day brunch plans now, so that you and yours can ponder these questions together.
There is a thought that you should spend your New Years Day engaged in the activities that you want to emulate for your coming year. Minx encourages you to go one step further, and dress in the style that you want to adopt for 2015.
French Connection Dress
A New Years Day breakfast outfit needs to be straightforward (who knows how late you were up last night!) and solidly beautiful (like you.) This is a time to recover with some coffee and toast. This is not a time to attempt overly fussy ensembles or go overboard with accessories.
This French Connection dress is both easy to wear and beautifully feminine. The pattern of abstracted birds creates an illusion that the jewel toned feathers are perhaps organically belonging to the wearer as opposed to simply the pattern of the dress. There is that sense on the first day of the New Year that anything is possible. Let a dress covered in wings help usher you towards your new journey.
The simplicity of a short, tailored dress in the winter begs to be paired with tights (you can never go wrong with black tights) and a great shoe. Don’t underestimate the power that a shoe has over your outfit. We have chosen a low boot because it instantly makes the outfit practical and fashionable. Have fun with your shoe choice. Try a taller boot, flats, or a heel to customize the look to fit your wants and needs.
The Faux Shearling Jacket by Numph
Let’s not forget that it’s only the first of the year and still cold out! This faux shearling jacket from Denmark’s own Numph creates a fantastical addition to this New Years Day breakfast look. Numph prides themselves on creating fashions that both accommodate the practical side of our daytime lives with the glitz and fantasy of our nighttime lives. Brunch is an in between time, blending those two worlds together for one brief and magical meal.
Imagine running into your breakfast venue, perhaps a bit late. Your friends are already seated around the table. They are excited to see you so that you can all share the stories form your New Years Eve parties. Before you sit, you slip your fairy tale shearling jacket off revealing your immaculate dress of feathers. You are transformed, you are freshly made for the next chapter of your life, fresh for the New Year!
