The last day of 2021, the last post of 2021, and the last Fashion Friday of of 2021! Every Friday I post a new outfit on Sparkles & Shoes and with more than fifty to choose from, these are my favorites from this past year. These are quite a few common themes between these best outfits of the year – I have a love for pearl earrings as well as striped clothing, my beloved KISS imPRESS nails, and dark sunnies but at the same time each of the looks that made the best outfits of the year round up are quite different.
In putting together this round up I realized throughout 2021 there were a number of outfits I wore that did not make it to Fashion Friday but that I adored. I almost broke my Year in Review mould and included them here but instead, I am going to add it to my New Year’s Resolutions (coming next week) to take more DSLR photos of my outfits on my tripod and not just wait when I have a photographer handy. Breaking down the shots below, Mark took seven of them, two were taken by a professional photographer, and one was taken on my tripod. Let’s see if we can even out those numbers next year! Take a look:
While clearly the countdown is done as a bonus, and only because it was not a Fashion Friday, clearly the best thing I wore this year was my wedding dress which you saw close ups of featured in Wednesday’s post, My Bridal Portraits!
It was so sweet of Mark to help this morning in picking out his faovirte looks from the year and thus the top 10 changed a bit from the first draft. In addition to the looks above honorable mentions now go to my Leopard Sweater Dress from the post Wild Thing, You Make My Heart Sing, as well as Downtown in a White Cable Knit Sweater, the Winter look Black Watch with a Bow, and A Festive Green Slip Dress
Which of these Best Outfits of the Year is your favorite?
