One of the perks of bridal style these days is how easily much of it transcends the wedding world and can be adapted to other special occasions. With New Year's Eve around the corner, I thought it'd be fitting to put together a Best of Vale + Vine collection featuring looks that are bound to turn heads and drop jaws no matter how you intend to ring in 2016.
The first images celebrate understated elegance that embraces wavy locks (gathered up or left down), flowing skirts, layers, and natural makeup. These graduate into a number of classic looks that emphasize lace, structured lines, beadwork, and dazzling statement jewelry. The last images from the collection embody full-scale drama and offer everything from sequins, to headpieces, fur accents to makeup meant to impress.
