It might be the last big decision you’ll have to make in 2015: what to wear New Year’s Eve? If you haven’t decided yet, you’ll want to check out our ‘New Year’s Eve Party Looks’ blog for some ideas to get you started. Then read on for a more in-depth look at the finishing touches – shoes, accessories and beauty products – you need to make your outfit party ready!
Here are just a few favourites from our extensive Last Minute Party shoe and accessories boutique.
Whether you’re planning a lavish night out on the town or a more cosy night in with friends, the shoes and boots you choose are nearly as important as your outfit (the truly shoe-crazy among us may even say more important). For dancing the night away in full glam mode, look for heels that lengthen your pins and add festive flair to your outfit, like these peep-toe platform sandals from Miss KG or a glittery court shoe from Shoe Box. Going to the pub or to a house party? These glittery ankle boots will add just the right amount of seasonal sparkle to a pair of skinnies and a sequined top, or pair these strappy gladiator heels from Myleene Klass with your frock.
New Year’s Eve may fall in the dead of winter, but that doesn’t mean you can’t look fabulous whilst keeping warm! Faux-fur is the must-have signature look for this season’s accessories –an oversized collar wrap or this 60s-inspired faux-fur collar from Olivia would team up perfectly with a little black dress. If you’re dressing down for the evening, a cape is the ideal choice to pair with trousers or skinny jeans – we love this blue-green ombre choice from JayLey. Look for the faux-fur trend on clutches as well, such as this one from Miss Selfridge in a neutral shade that will go with anything, or if you want a more sparkly look, this embellished clutch from Oasis is a great choice to pair with a sequined dress. Finally, don’t forget to complete your entire look with some statement costume jewellery! We’ve got an amazing range of necklaces, earrings and bracelets to complement any outfit – from the understated drama of this gold and pearl cuff to this on-trend fringed and tasselled necklace and everything in between!
From perfectly executed eyebrows (try this kit from NYX, for example) to the glittery, smoky eye (Bourjois’ 4-way eye shadow in Grey Night is a favourite), to the boldest red lips (Pure Red Blake from L’Oreal Paris is a great choice), don’t be afraid to make a bold statement with your party make-up! And we’ve got your hair styling needs covered too – from Nicky Clarke’s compact rollers for big beautiful hair to the BaByliss Pro Elegance 235 Straighteners for a sleek, polished look.
