Any downtown girls looking for the perfect holiday look needn't look further than Reformation and 4th & Bleeker by Alexandra Spencer's new collaboration. Created just for New Year's Eve, the "baby Kate Moss" -inspired collection features slinky maxi dresses, sparkling spaghetti straps, and low-cut mini dresses designed for a wild night out. As New Year's Eve plans start coming together (and this collection starts selling out), we asked Spencer for her tips on the best New Year's Eve look ever.
Define your style in three words:
4th and Bleeker.
I’m Australian so no shoes is my favorite but for heels Gianvito Rossi and my red Valentino mary janes or Converse for everything else.
Your secret to the perfect New Year's Eve look:
Something you wear not something that wears you. New Year's Eve is for being bad but looking good and nothing looks good when you’re not feeling like yourself!
How early do you start planning for New Year's?
It changes every year because I never know where I’ll be but once I know what I’m doing for Christmas then I can start planning
What is your dream New Year's Eve party?
Somewhere warm with my man and the people I love the most.
Your (non-New Year's Eve) nighttime look:
Black and somewhat see-through or 501s and and something that looks like it’s held together with a hope and a wish.
Diptyque Number 34 perfume and Double Disco earrings.
Best recent discoveries:
Menswear label Second/Layer that’s really all I want to wear and hand drawn t-shirts by Zoe Vance.
A painting by Paul Kremer and a Polaroid 600 SE camera.
Style pet peeve:
I’m down for everyones style whatever it is. As long as they’re into it, I’m into it.
All the women in my life.
New Year's Eve must-haves:
What’s always in your bag:
My passport, receipts I’ll never use for tax purposes, loose tobacco and Covergirl lip stain in 415.
