The East Village in Manhattan is full of exciting and enjoyable hotspots to spend New Year’s Eve! Here, at a local neighborhood restaurant, Nicoletta, we showcased some of our favorite trends to ring in 2016!

Trend: Metallics
Metallics are huge trend that were found in a variety of retail stores throughout 2015, and will definitely continue to trickle throughout the New Year. This outfit sported by Rosy is a copper-colored varsity style bomber jacket, paired with a faux leather midi skirt. Laquesha rocks a motorcycle jacket with a matching metallic blouse. She is also wearing vegan leather pants from and silver metallic shoes!

Trend: NYE Accessories (Flash Tattoos & Feathers)
Accessories always make an outfit complete! A huge trend this year has been flash tattoos, which look great for any NYE party occasion. Andrea is showing a cool geometric flash tattoo on her upper cheek! Tom and Nicole show off unique feathered pieces as adornments to add some flair to their NYE outfits. Tom has a vintage feathered headpiece held together by a leather buckle. Nicole wears a multi-colored feathered clip with a fun and funky jewel in the center.
