5..4..3..2..Happy New Year!
It’s one of the biggest parties of the year, and also the first. But, what will you wear to the big event?
Here are some outfit ideas to help you be the belle of the ball, and attract that cutie across the room in time for a New Year's kiss!
Dresses dripping in crystals, sequins and rhinestones tend to be appropriate for two occasions a year, either your birthday or New Year’s Eve. Anything that glitters is sure to have all eyes on you, so look for a mini in a classic shape covered in sparkles. Keep accessories minimal and neutral in either black, white or metallic and put your hair up to show off your dress. If all over sparkle is too much for you, incorporate it into details such as a jacket with sequin lapels or on the trim on your dress.
Be one of the boys in a sexy smoking suit jacket. Look for a black one in a streamlined cut, single breasted, or find one in a festive metallic fabric. Wear a tie blouse underneath and a top hat to complete this look!
Minis are everywhere and are a versatile party look. One trend emerging this season are heavier fabrics like brocades and knits. Find one with metallic threads built into the fabric for a little bit of sparkle. On top, wear a silk slip cami or peplum blouse.
You can never go wrong with a little black dress. Black and white continues to be a huge trend, so look for a striped LBD or wear a pearl necklace to try out the trend. If you want to dress up your usual, go-to LBD, splurge on a bedazzled clutch or iridescent shoes to add some glitz into your look.
Printed pants, whether they are jeans, leggings or slacks are a huge trend for fall. From metallic leopard print, to houndstooth to stripes, any printed pant can be dressed up for a party. Wear a sexy sheer blouse, statement necklace and your highest heels to make them party ready.
The right accessory can do a lot to elevate your party look. Even though it’s winter, a sexy pair of stilettos in your favourite shade or a killer metallic pair will boost your outfit’s style cred. A festive clutch adorned with jewels, sequins or studs also makes a statement. Just don’t forget your 2014 novelty glasses!
