Where to Get Last Minute NYE Looks For Under $100

Have you already exceeded your holiday shopping budget but still need something cute to wear for NYE?

If so, we’ve got your back!

Last week we visited Water Tower Place in Chicago’s historic Magnificent Mile.

After walking all 729,000 sq ft of the retail space and checking out most of the stores, we rounded up where you can get the most glamorous NYE looks for under $100 and still look like a million bucks!

First, check out Forever 21. Located on level 5, this retailer is well-known for its latest trends and the season’s hottest styles at prices you won’t mind being over if it’s out of style by next season.



We  put together a little mix and match with some Holiday-inspired dresses, vests, & accessories




Next, Francesca’s. Located on the 5th floor as well (Next to Forever 21) they specialize in women clothing but it’s a great place to find random gifts as well. Prices are decent and every store has its own charm. Usually, every store carries different items from each other and it’s a great place to find unique pieces with a boho-chic vibe.


Unfortunately, Francesca’s is not on Shopstyle, but, here are a few items that have sort of the same vibe. If you’d like to see more, you can always visit their website as well. These gorgeous dresses on display are perfect for a casual NYE look and they represent perfectly what Francesca’s is all about. Here are some Boho-Chic dresses and accessories, inspired from what we saw at Francesca’s:


The following ensemble consists of an interchangeable fur pom pom with beanie, sweater, and faux leather leggings from KizChicago boutique, Moncler coat, Vintage Celine Box Bag, Fendi Buggie Bag Bug, and boots from the Balmain x H&M collaboration. See similar pieces below.


It doesn’t matter what you choose to wear this NYE as long as you get to spend it with the people you love and care about!

We wish you to have a great Holiday season and a Happy New Year!
