This Is What We're Wearing to Our New Year's Day Hangover
Sure, you overindulged. Here are our picks for hiding holiday debauchery — culinary, liquid and otherwise
Had too many helpings of Aunt Edna's mashed potatoes? Or, perhaps Uncle Garry's political rants caused you to seriously binge on Cousin Stacey's spiked egg nog? Captain Obvious says, "Self-control and the holidays don't play well."
Even though crawling into that cavernous F&B bender hole feels necesito, hate to break it to ya, but you still have brunch plans and post-holiday errands to run (Hello, sales galore?). Your innards may be screaming for mercy, but that doesn't mean you have to look like a complete schlump. It's easy enough to get strategic with a few quick wardrobe tricks, and no one will know your organs are contemplating a coup. See below and pull it together, sister!
Oversized Sweatshirt With Washed-Out Floral Print Co-Ord by Hype, $75.80 (pictured above).
You may not be feeling like unicorns and rainbows, but a bright, billowy sweatshirt may just help your mind get over the matter.
Track Dress With Contrast Hem by Alexander Wang, $398.
A one-hit wonder, this sweater dress calls for just a single action: zip. Functioning much like the blanket you wish you were cuddling beneath, think of this piece as living vicariously in your bed — while actually functioning as a normal (and sleek) human.
Easy Sweatpants by Bella Dahl, $128.
They look denim, but they don't act like it. These babies are elastic-waisted and made of the softest weave. Plus, your bottom-half's new BFF has pockets for a sneaky quick-draw of Advil or Tums. Pair them with a black ankle boot, cashmere sweater and chic overcoat and off you go!
Bohemian Hat in Black by Anine Bing, $149.
When all else fails, go incognito. Hide tired eyes and forgo the shampoo rigmarole with this chic topper. As for your food bump, you're on your own, there.
Denim Long-Sleeve Stand Collar Jumpsuit by Band of Outsiders, $537.
If your head (or the room) is spinning, why not go with the most basic of all basics, a take on the Texan Tuxedo? This romper's right on trend and as thoughtless as your current urge for bacon-laced anything.
Plaid Wool Shift Dress by Pixie Market, $90.
Another sweater dress at a lower price point never hurt anyone. This rendition is extra comfy and hides even the biggest beast-outs from the previous evening(s).
Low-tops by Mary Katrantzou x Adidas, $170.
Today, of all days, you can be thankful that "sporty spice" is topping this season's trend list. Snag a pair of colorful trainers to prevent weary feet and they'll do double duty come New Year's Monday when you finally have to get your act together.
Cotton-poplin shirt dress by Jill Sander, $1,750.
Winter white and anything but tight — a unique shirt dress is the most chic way to look fresh when you feel rotten.
Grey Cotton Black Border Short Caftan, by TWO, $360.
News alert: Caftans are not strictly for vacations. Throw on a thick turtleneck beneath or long coat atop, et voilà, you're styling.
