Sleek, sexy New Year’s Eve dresses!

New Year's Eve dresses inspired by ice queen Claire Underwood.


I’ve recently begun watching House of Cards on Netflix (a little late to the party, I know). And, in addition to exceptional writing and talented acting, I am thoroughly enjoying the never-ending parade of sleek, stylish, and sophisticated clothes sported by ice queen Claire Underwood (played by the gorgeous Robin Wright).

In each episode, her ensembles are impossibly chic, often monochromatic, and always fit like a glove. So, this New Year’s I was inspired by her trademark, minimalist style when selecting dresses for the most important evening of the year.

Like Claire herself, each dress is deceptively simple. Slip one of these New Year’s Eve dresses on, however, and it becomes something truly special.

Happy New Year!
