Can you believe another year has come and gone? I can’t! It seems like just yesterday I was fighting the urge to leave my friend’s New Year’s Eve party at 10 p.m. so I could enjoy the 2016 countdown. (I think I lasted until 10:30.)

This year, whether I make it to midnight or not, I’m hoping to at least make it into a “non-mom” outfit that is stylish and festive. (If only yoga pants with dried on food and boogers were appropriate.) Are you with me, mamas? Ready to bring your style A game to the table? Let’s talk about ending one year on a fashionable foot, and starting a new year in style too. These 5 New Year’s Eve inspired looks are sure to get you motivated to hop on the “non-mom” style train! Choo choo! Here come the hot mamas ready to ring in 2017 in an outfit that is so last year…but also so next year.

1. Comfort Meets Dazzle

Whoa…you can wear leggings to a New Year’s Eve party and still be stylish? Yes you can! For moms who prioritize comfort, leggings and a tunic will actually work for a holiday celebration, as long as you accompany them with something that sparkles. With sequins being all the rage this year, you can easily throw on a sequin blazer to add dazzle to your comfy, cozy look.

2. Modest Midi Skirt

Whether you’re heading to a friend’s NYE bash, or an after-work shindig, a midi skirt with some holiday flair is both modest and trendy. Go for a fun print with traditional New Year’s Eve colors (think black, white, gold or silver), and pair with a basic tee to give the skirt all of the attention.

3. Va Va Voom Velvet

Velvet is the fabric to wear this year. Err…next year. And with a rich, wintry color like burgundy, your velvet will come to life! A cocktail party or another NYE event where showing some skin is acceptable means a velvet, form fitting dress in a seasonal color is a must-have.
