Once the Christmas festivities end, it’s time to start thinking about New Year’s Eve. And while NYE might look a little different this year, it doesn’t mean you can’t go all out with your look and have a little fun. After all, with the difficult year we’ve all had, I know some will be wanting to embrace something bold to ring in the new year. So what are my New Year’s Eve outfit tips?
When it comes to New Year’s Eve dressing the brief usually falls under the category of glitzy, glamorous attire complemented by statement-making makeup. And I think you have licence 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!
So, if you’ve yet to lock your outfit in, I’ve got a few tips below on how to find a look you’ll be happy to farewell this year in, in great style.
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 are largely Aussie 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 looking for something that’s perfect to wear to an event.
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.
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 an Uber. 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. That said, do go all out with your choice of shoe. Something flashy, fun and dramatic is definitely in order.
While the rest of your accessories, including jewellery and bag choice can also fall into the category of striking and vibrant. Think colour, think metallic finishes, think details such as sequins—the only rule is that it be all about making a statement.
