With the run-up to Christmas in full swing, it might be easy to forget New Year’s Eve is hard on its heels! Whilst you’re finishing your Christmas shopping, why not look ahead and be sure you’ve got your party look all sorted to see in in the New Year?
Whether you’re planning a glam night out, a more casual evening at the pub, or a cosy night in with friends and family, we’ve put together some top tips for the outfits, footwear, accessories and beauty products that will have you ready to meet 2016 looking your very best.
There’s one word to keep in mind if you’re out on the town New Year’s Eve: sparkle! Sequins are a must-have this season. For dancing the night away, opt for a shorter length, like this stunning multi-toned Culotte Jumpsuit from Definitions, or this high-impact red mini from V by Very. Add a pair of peep toe platform heels like these glitzy cherry-embellished sandals from Miss KG and you’re sure to dazzle.
Complete your look with a glamorous clutch, like this elegant tasselled option. Our stylists suggest you choose a focus area – if your dress is dazzling, keep your shoes, accessories and makeup more minimalist so as not to pull focus. If you opt for a more understated frock, the sky’s the limit when it comes to piling on the glam!
A bit more low-key than a glam night out, to be sure, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be every bit as stylish for a trip to the pub or a night in with friends. The key is to take
casual styling basics and amp them for a bit of next level glitz! Upgrade from leggings with these biker-detailed black jeans from South with a hint of wet-look shine, and pair with a faux-fur gilet like this one from V by Very in this season’s hottest shade of berry. You can bring a subtle touch of festive flair to your look with a print or embellished top – we love the subtle shine of this sequined cami from V by Very – perfect with skinny jeans! Have fun with your accessories too – it’s a great way to express your individuality. Try a funky clutch, such as this wristlet from Marios Schwab for Fiorelli, or some long beaded tassel earrings.
