As the holidays come to a close, we are left to reflect on this new year and the changes, challenges, and small joys that are to come for 2021. Maybe your New Year's eve for 2020 didn’t go according to plans due to the strict lockdown. If your holiday season didn’t look exactly how you wanted, maybe some happiness can be found in a new New Year’s outfit for next year. Let’s take a look at some of our favorite New Year’s pieces from our Costa Mesa location.
A classic holiday wardrobe staple every closet needs is a fluffy fur coat. It will keep you nice and toasty during the winter and will never fail at making an outfit seem more formal. This Charles Klein coat includes a hood for those extra cold nights. If you’re going for that sleek all black New Years look this coat could complete the look for the remarkable price of thirty three dollars.
This tartan skirt would not only match the faux fur coat perfectly, but also would look like it could be found dressing one of the actors from Gossip Girl in the early 2000’s. The subtle tinsel like glittery thread in the skirt adds the perfect amount of holiday cheer, and will get everyone in the mood to party (socially distanced, of course). Match this vintage skirt with some tights or fishnets to add an extra winter layer and you’re good to go. It could be yours for thirty nine dollars.
Maybe you are taking a note from the lates and greats and turning your quarantine New Year’s into a Gatsby themed night. When we say Gatsby we mean the Baz Luhrmann version, that feels both nostalgic yet new at the same time. This Masaki Matsura dress still has the original tags on it for the whooping price of a thousand and eight dollars, but you can find it here for a fraction of a price. This dress could be yours for nearly a steal of hundred and forty nine dollars. So dance the night away as if you were a true flapper in your new retro dress!
Another vintage gem found in the dress section of our Costa Mesa location! The beading is amazing and was deeply cared for by the pervious owner. Leave this dress as is in its original classic form, or a quick trip to a tailer could modify this piece into a sexy modern version. Just add a slit for your leg up the side, and you’re ready to hustle. Either way this slip is remarkable, and would be the talk of any New Year’s Eve Zoom party. Make it yours for only twenty nine dollars!
Perhaps you’re trying to keep it rock ’n' roll casual — you know, too cool for a New Year’s party to begin with, so instead you drink top shelf whiskey straight on their plush velvet sofa. These Ragged Priest pants are too busy judging your personal vinyl collection instead of listening to everyone’s boring New Year’s resolutions. If you would rather ring in the New Year with some Led Zeppelin over Auld Lang Syne these pants are for you, and can be yours for twenty nine dollars.
These slick black boats are the perfect neutral boot to pair with any New Year’s outfit, or really any outfit. Everyone needs a pair of plain black boots ready to match and spruce up any boring outfit, and these are no exception. If you’re a size five and a half, get out there and buy these before they disappear. All for the amazing price of nineteen dollars.
We, here, at 2nd Street can appreciate the finer things in life such as these muffs. Honestly I’ve always found them a useless fashion accessory because I live in southern California, where we could never dream of the cold that would need to prevail in order for us to dawn these. But for those who experience seasons, I definitely see the appeal of having a fury scrap of fabric to warm the extremities of your body. And at 2nd Street, we have a wide variety of prints and faux furs to keep fingers extra warm in the winter months and to tie those outfits together to take them to the next level.
Another incredible find is this perfect condition sheer and velvet Comme Des Garcon blazer. Are you going to a secret circus event or a nice New Years Eve party with a the biggest charcuterie spread… no one knows. This blazer would go perfectly with high wasted anything! Not only would you embody a ring leader on the outside, but this jacket will also give you the confidence to lead your own life by kissing that guy when the clock strikes twelve.
Lastly we have these sparkly Converse that will make you feel and become Tyler, the Creator’s song ‘Glitter.” Put these dancing shoes on and know one’s eyes will never be able to leave your feet. You’ll be able to magically moon walk so well in these, even Michael Jackson will be turning in his grave in jealousy. So dance the night away in these Converse for the low price of sixty dollars.
Well, everyone thank you for joining us hopefully next New Years we’ll be able to go out and wear some of these outfits instead of having to be stuck at home.
