Each New Year’s Eve, we flock to the clubs and parties to celebrate the end of yet another year and the promise of a fresh start. It is quite literally the party of the year. It marks the end of the festive season, so of course, we want to go out with a bang, which includes putting together the most drop-dead gorgeous look that makes us look and feel amazing.
If you’re fresh out of ideas after already planning your outfits for your office party, Christmas and Boxing Day events, we are here to help. We have pulled together the key ingredients for five different NYE looks to ensure you are the bell of the ball. Consider it our Christmas gift to you!
Dazzle in Sequins & Sparkles
If you are struggling to plan an NYE outfit, your problem may be that you are trying to think too far outside the box. This can be forgiven; we all want to stand out from the crowd and pull off something new.
But when it comes to New Year's Eve, there are a lot of traditions in place, and we believe sequins should be one of them! NYE is probably one of the only occasions where being decked out head to toe in sequins and sparkle is acceptable, if not to be expected.
So, you should take this golden opportunity to glitter all night long as you take up the dancefloor and choose a sequin style.
We love the Arabella Sequin Square Neck Dress for the party girl hitting up the bars and clubs. Its short length makes it perfect for dancing the night away, while the square neckline and checkerboard design make it a trending style perfect for candid NYE pics on the ‘gram. Dress it up with a black blazer and knee-high boots to complete the look.
Make a Statement with Earrings
Sometimes it’s not all about having a totally new outfit, and you can feel comfortable and look amazing in one of your favourite looks from your wardrobe. Reinvent the fit and add dynamic style with a pair of statement earrings that accentuate your features and draw the eye.
The Palmer Heart Earrings from our collection are the perfect mix of sparkle and shape, offering a unique silhouette emphasised by glittering stones. Paired with a classic little black dress or accessorised with more glitter and sparkles, statement earrings are the ultimate NYE accessory.
Go for the clean girl aesthetic and slick your hair back into a low bun or ponytail and allow the earrings to do all the work, or add more excitement with a swooping and curled top knot.
Look Elegant in Satin
For New Year’s Eve plans that are a little more refined, we recommend a satin dress for the ultimate flirty yet elegant look. Perhaps you’ve been invited to an NYE ball, or you have tickets to a special event; even a meal in a high-class restaurant followed by sipping cocktails on a rooftop bar will warrant an outfit that is more chic than flashy.
So, for the dress that does it all, choose the Felicity Cold Shoulder Satin Maxi Dress. This sleek silhouette and satin design will loosely hug your figure for a flattering style that looks good at any angle. Its full-length shape also makes it perfect for elongating your legs and adding height with heels. In contrast, the simple Bardot neckline lengthens the neck, pronounces your collarbones and makes it the ideal opportunity to reach for statement earrings that give you a model look.
If you still want to add an element of sparkle or excitement to your satin style, choose a feathered handbag or add glittering stones with a simple tennis bracelet and thin necklace.
Step into the New Year in Style
A girl can never have too many pairs of shoes, and for the night you want to dance away, you need a pair of glittering showstoppers.
Luxury, designer style is wrapped up in our pair of Dulcie Perspex Silver Bow Heels, where every aspect of this dynamic style complements perfectly. Featuring the perfect height that will elongate your legs the perspex design will show off your festive pedicure while still keeping your toes covered. Finally, rows of glittering gems wrap around the ankle and tie the look together with a swooping bow to the toe.
These heels will dress up the most simple dresses or are perfectly paired with a glitter or sequin look. They are the ideal pair to build an outfit around this NYE!
Keep it Cosy & Chic
Some of the best New Year’s Eve events we have ever been to are the ones spent cosy at home with friends and family. Whether you’re hosting your nearest and dearest with a buffet and drinks, or you have planned to ultimate games night, we have the perfect outfit inspo for you.
Of course, you can still throw on your best party dress if that's the vibe, but that doesn’t mean you still can’t look in the spirit if you’re planning a simple bash. Opting for loungewear for your relaxed NYE celebration will ensure you still look amazing while feeling even better with comfortable designs you can sit and relax in until the early morning. We think the Hope Knitted High Neck Jumper in stone or black is the perfect on-trend pick to keep you warm and toasty while still looking chic when paired with leather trousers or leggings.
Alternatively, opt for every chic girl's winter staple with a knitted dress that looks as good with boots as it does with slippers! If this is more your vibe, then the Tiana Ivory High Neck Midi Knit Dress is the perfect pick for you this NYE.
