Local Boutiques' Style Guide to Killing It on New Year's Eve 2015

Page 2 of 3

In order to quell your sartorial anxieties, Cultist has buddied up with some of the best menswear and women's boutiques in Miami to outfit three main designer breeds living in the 305. Not only have we whipped up suggestive ensembles to rock at night pre-countdown, we've also put together six additional day-outfits so you can gracefully bid adieu to 2014 and ring in 2015. Let the shnazzing-up begin!

For The Soho Shmoozers:

The thought of welcoming in the new year with a quiet night at home shatters your sanity to its core. Instead, being seen in crisp designer rock-a-wear while flocking among Miami's elite in a Soho House-type setting is your version of cozy. And before the champagne-shower shenanigans of the night ensue, mimosas served up at the last brunch of the year consume your hectic daytime schedule.

Where: MVM in Wynwood

Who: MVM store owner, Melissa Mosheim, and MVM publicist Iman Hasan of The Workshop

From day:

Melissa: "It's a festive day and I love color so this day-to-night transitional skirt from Bailey 44 and my favorite sweater from Clover Canyon is the perfect combo between flirty and sporty."

Iman: "The skirt has got a summer feel to it, yet the jacket on top keeps it wintery. I'm feeling blues this season, so I have a blend of light and dark blues working for me here. But the best part is the elastic waist band on the skirt, that way I can really stuff in the carbs before really behaving myself next year."

To Night:

Melissa: "This Jay Godfrey dress just screams New Year's Eve. It has a nice shimmery sheen without being over the top sparkle."

Iman: "I just moved down from London seven months ago so this outfit represents what I would wear there - minus this fur coat! I love the color of the dress and the chunky accessories really bring it all to life. I paired the dress with Alejandro Ingelmo booties (courtesy of Capretto in South Miami), who always does a great job of coming up with a sexy shoe without bordering on hoochie-mama."

Where: OFY in Mary Brickell Village

Who: OFY storeowner, Ofir Farahan

From Day:

"I feel cool as fuck in this; I always dig a neutral palate."

To Night:

"My strategy for New Year's Eve has always been underdressing is overdressing - not too stuffy. A Marino wool blazer with a fitted checkered shirt on top of a pair of J Brand skinnies and United Nude Chukka boots (exclusively sold at OFY) makes it all feel very solid yet comfortable."
