NYE – All Eyes on You

New Year’s Eve is almost upon us and if you are anything like me this morning, you are halfway submerged in a flood of silk, chiffon and sequins that you’ve pulled from your bursting closet, desperately searching for the right dress.

Empty-handed and exhausted, I turned to the web, where I came across this metallic bouclé bustier and matching pencil skirt from Jonathan Simkhai, and I knew I’d struck gold.

Jonathan Simkhai Pre Spring 2014

If you’re not already familiar with designer Jonathan Simkhai, allow us to introduce you:

Born-and-raised in New York, Simkhai is new to NET-A-PORTER and Selfridges. Designing for modern, cosmopolitan women, Simkhai’s clothes have been worn by the likes of the style-savvy Rachel Bilson and Chanel’s latest muse, Kristen Stewart in recent weeks. We love his very wearable, eye-catching designs and this one is no different!

For all eyes on you this year, I recommend giving the sequins a rest and wearing Simkhai’s glamorous bustier and pencil skirt instead. Try matching it with these understated Saint Laurent sandals and this acrylic box clutch from Edie Parker. The sandals will lengthen the leg, while the clutch is just wow! *

Finish the look with this set of Maison Martin Margiela Rings and double up on this Thomas Sabo Ear Cuff for a similar –but more affordable – look to the Repossi one, which we featured on our Wish List last week. It’s strange, Santa didn’t get it for us either… 😉

And voila! You’re all set to shine.

* I found myself really torn on the clutch, so here are the runners-up!


1) Saint Laurent – Diagonal suede minaudière clutch

2) Saint Laurent – Micro Mallettes leather clutch

3) Diane Von Furstenberg – Sutra glossed leather box clutch

Wishing you all very happy holidays and a fabulous New Year!

Until next time, send me your holiday style pics (via #EmmaMillerUK) and follow my travels on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram 🙂
