My tips for New Year’s Eve party dressing

27th December, 2018

When it comes to New Year’s Eve dressing think glitzy, glamorous and bold statement-making makeup.And hey, it’s definitely the time to embrace sequins, vibrant colour and fun accoutrements. If there’s one time of the year you can afford to go a little OTT it’s the eve of December 31st!

The outfit

I think New Year’s Eve is all about the perfect dress. For me I definitely tend to go for something a little sexier for New Year’s Eve. It’s the time to splash out, so if you want to wear sequins or something sparkly or if you want to go for a classic LBD with a statement shoe or with a striking clutch, there’s no better time to stand out and have fun with your outfit.

My go-to party dress designers: I think you can find some really sleek and sexy looks at Dion Lee. And I think Camilla and Marc always do really great party dresses. Rebecca Vallance is also one my go-to designers when I’m thinking of event dressing.

Top tip: No matter where you’re going on New Year’s Eve, it can be notoriously hard to get around so it’s all about finding a sexy statement heel that’s easy to get around in case you have to walk miles to get a taxi. Make sure to think comfort as well as style when it comes your footwear – you don’t want to be walking around barefoot at the stroke of midnight.

The makeup

For me it’s all about making a statement whether that be a bold eye or a bold lip, but make sure it’s one or the other. I think a black smoky eye is always a great look on New Year’s Eve. It’s definitely the time to dress up.

When it comes to hair it’s a great time to experiment and do something a little more party ready if you dare. A great bouncy blow dry, tousled curls or going sleek with a slicked back bun are all great options for December 31.

New Year’s Eve is just around the corner and it can be one of those occasions where the perfect party dress is a must on your list. It’s also the ideal time to embrace an outfit that’s bold and has plenty of impact to really help you ring in the new year in style. And really, who can pass up the opportunity to wear something that’s glam and has a whole lot of sparkle?

When it comes to the ideal New Year’s Eve party dress don’t be afraid to push the boundaries and go for something outside of your usual go-to styles. You can afford to go all out as it’s an evening that has such a great party vibe and your outfit should definitely match. You could try doing sequins, experimenting with texture such as flounces and fringing and by all means do plenty of colour. If that’s not your scene, something that has a  glamorous and sexy feel is also ideal.

Stuck for what to wear on New Year’s Eve? I’ve got some ideas for you…

24th December, 2017

Heading out to enjoy the New Year’s Eve festivities? If so, I’m betting you’re already planning your outfit. For the super organised you may already have your ensemble planned from head to toe but if you’re feeling stuck for what to wear then you’ve come to the right place. I’ve got some looks that will have your outfit on December 31 sorted in no time.

Edgy and modern

If you’re headed to a dressy event then a suit could be just the answer. In what’s sure to be a sea of dresses it’s totally unexpected and it looks chic and very of the moment.

Pretty and feminine

Embrace your girly side and opt for beautiful pastel shades with plenty of intricate finishing touches such as lace or embroidery.

Polished and elegant

I wore this on a recent night out and particularly loved the one shoulder style and bow adornment. A classic navy is always a failsafe option when it come to dresses and this particular piece has just the right amount of wow factor to make it stand out.

Bold and graphic

It’s party time so why not go all out and embrace bold prints and patterns. It’s the ideal look to make a statement when paired with details such as a blouson sleeve or pintuck skirt.

Chic and simple

A jumpsuit is one of my favourite options for event dressing. When in a classic black, it also takes the stress out of planning an outfit as you know the colour will just work. All you need to do is add accessories and you’re set.

Vibrant and glam

I knew when pulling together this look that the colours and textures were what truly made it feel cohesive. A luxe fabric like velvet and striking colours will have you standing out in the crowd this New Year’s Eve.

Classic and elegant

Don’t forget about the power of a top and skirt combination for a great evening look. Simple minimalist heels and statement earrings lift the outfit without being overpowering.
