Whether you’re spending New Year’s on the beach or at a ski resort, we have a standout look for every occasion.
1. If you’re in Miami (or any warm weather location) for New Year’s, you need the MILLY Cutout Dress. Cutout details make this LBD sexy, and a fitted silhouette will flatter every body type. Add a pop of color to this getup and you’ll be set for a night in South Beach.
2. Going to a black tie event? You’re in luck. Our Racer Party Dress, made of Cheetah Lurex Lace, is bound to make a statement. A floor length skirt and racer back create a tailored and bold look.
3. For those headed to a hotel rooftop bash…sporting sequins is a must. Our Sleeve Cocktail Dress, crafted in black and gold stretch sequins, features a subtly sexy scoop back. You’re bound to catch the attention of your New Year’s kiss in this number.
4. If you prefer a low-key night… go with the MILLY Fly Away Rhinestone Tank and Leather Leggings. Rhinestone details enhance this black tank top and leather leggings make this outfit edgy. Good friends, great food, necessary New Year’s drinks and a favorite outfit = the perfect night.
5. At a ski resort for the holidays? A statement coat better make it into your suitcase. The MILLY Cocktail Coat is the ultimate topper to any winter look- layer it over your favorite dress and pair it with a bold bag for a glam New Year’s outfit. If you’re prepping for a cold night, you might as well throw in our Sermoneta for MILLY Studded Gloves. Talk about rocker chic done right.

Christy, Naomi, Linda, oh my!
The legendary fashion photographer Roxanne Lowit got her start in the ‘70s when her friend, the late fashion illustrator Antonio Lopez, gave her an Instamatic 110 camera. Before long, she was establishing herself in the fashion world by pioneering the art of backstage photography at a Halston runway show.
She captured what some call the “golden age” of fashion, when supermodels ruled the world. Feeling nostalgic? Us, too: Lowit’s photos from the last four decades are the subject of the exhibition “Roxanne Lowit: Be Fabulous,” on display  through January 18, 2014, at Steven Kasher Gallery in New York.

Michelle Smith, founder and designer of MILLY, constructs a Pre-Fall collection with a poetic inspiration, intertwining romanticism with subtly dark, urban accents.
Using ethereal textures like featherweight fur and lace along with gradient hues of black, charcoal, ballet pink and orchid to create a dramatic effect. Oversize gold zippers punctuate lightweight leather skirts and dresses.  
It’s impossible to pick favorites, but some standout statement pieces include a faille midi skirt with a painted and hand-drawn print, a bonded crepe feather trim jacket, and a fil coupe gown with hand-cut fringe.

Rachel Bilson loves to be the first to try out a trend. So it’s only fitting she is the first celebrity to wear this MILLY look, straight from the MILLY Spring ‘14 runway, for this week’s People’s Choice Award nominations. 

Inspired by a recent trip MILLY founder and designer Michelle Smith took to Hawaii and Tokyo, the print, called “Sea Blossom” was engineered specially by Michelle, then nail-cut and printed on a luxurious Italian neoprene fabric.  The silhouette on this look is ultra-flattering—the zip top is feminine with an edge, and perfect when paired with the long pencil skirt which hits the skinniest part of every woman’s body.
