Instead, opt for a “more is more” philosophy. Doing so will make you standout and look your best to reign in the New Year.
Here are some style guidelines to be sure you put your perfect outfit together.
Be sure to add some sparkle to your outfit. The New Year celebration is all about lighting up the sky, but with some shimmer and shine added to your outfit, you’ll steal the show.
Get Your Sequin On
One trend this year is sequin. Find a sequin dress or top and match it with a more neutral tone. This dress by Hervé Léger, £1,432 from Outnet.com (below) does this perfectly for you with shimmering sequin-spangled bandage dress that is worthy of a champagne toast.
With a dress this bold, pair it with some black heels. Our first pick would be some an elegant pair of Louboutin’s, but for us realists, we just don’t have that budget after Christmas. Instead opt for some affordable ones with an elegant accent, such as a bow like these Bumble D bow-trim round toe platform from Dune, £85 (below).
Lace It Up
Another trend is lace and ruffle accents. For this trend, subtlety is key; otherwise you’ll end up feeling like your grandma all night. This amethyst Betsey Johnson Pink Patch Evening Stretch Dress, $158 from Elly’s Couture (above) will make a statement. The ribbon and lace detail in the front combined with the bow in the back will make you one of the cutest at the party.
This dress can be paired with either heels or flats, choose some with gems on the straps or the heel to dress it up.
The Finishing Touch
Accessories are the key to finishing off any outfit. For your New Year’s Eve outfit, add a necklace, earrings, and/or bracelet like the ones from TK Maxx in the main shot. All three will look stunning and make you shine. Get creative here, you don’t need to spend lots of money on the jewellery; just make sure that it shines.
Another tip is to use a bold lipstick. Make it sparkle by pressing on some Barry M dazzle dust with your ring finger. Trust me, the glitter will stay on. And if you have doubts, give it a try before your party.
