For Just Enough Attention | What to Wear for New Year’s 2006

I have a similar tank to this from one of J.Crew’s previous seasons, and I’m overjoyed that they’ve brought it back. I love the unusual combination of scattered sequin overlay on lambswool with a racerback cut, plus the new silk chiffon trim, which is so of-the-moment.

Not sure what you’re wearing to that New Year’s Eve bash?

Problem solved!

$99.99 at J.Crew

Trendscape: Paisley

Save some space in your closet for paisley, whether it’s for this winter or the upcoming resort season. It’s a subtle way to add a bit of exoticism to your wardrobe without going overboard on this season’s Czarina look. And, since paisley is timeless, you’ll be able to wear it next year as well.

Henry.Brown Maggie Tennis Tote

This tennis tote is very country club, very preppy, very girly with its flirty pink color, quilting and bow tie. That’s exactly what we love about it — this is not your stinky gym bag.

Home Shopping: Vintage Modern Thomas O’Brien at Target

Interior designer Thomas O’Brien, founder of the SoHo’s Aero Studios in New York, has a new line exclusively for Target. If you’re not familiar with O’Brien, he’s famous for creating modern furniture with classic touches. We love the smart, space-saving furniture, his soft yet contemporary china, his neutral-happy home furnishings and, of course, the price.
