What to wear on NYE totally depends on where you’re going; your location at the stroke of midnight will influence your outfit. Either way there will be dancing; so investing in a good pair of shoes that you are comfortable in will really help you pull out your best dance moves. Current trends are lots of embellishments on classic styles, like sandals, pumps and Mary Jane’s in suede and velvet. You can customise your own shoes by adding anything you like sequins, studs, glitter, appliqué or costume brooches.
Accessorise to add your own personality with tassel and drop-earrings, collars, chokers, mini bags and quirky clutches. Don’t forget good quality matching lingerie, shape wear (if you need it), nipple covers if wearing tight fitted or sheer; and gel insoles as being comfortable on NYE is just as important as looking fabulous.Elie Saab Dress | Charlotte Olympia Clutch | Valentino Mary Janes | Oscar de la Renta Tassel Earrings
You can’t really go wrong with the fail-safe LBD (little black dress) as its so classic and looks great on all skin tones. Look for asymmetrical designs with sheerness, lace and embellishments on this classic to help you stand out. Mix it up with jumpsuits and rompers for a little difference. Pink is another option which is very on trend as is velvet, which has an old Hollywood glamour to it. Have a look in thrift shops, at markets and Etsy for something vintage, handmade and original.NastyGal Velvet Jumpsuit | Alexis Bittar Drop Earrings | Dsquared2 Velvet Sandal | Charlotte Olympia Clutch Box
Remember when shopping online to know your measurements; if in doubt order early so you can return if needed. If your not sure about your size order a size up, you can always have a garment taken in but you can’t make it bigger. So if you can’t sew make friends with a tailor, they are invaluable.
NYE is your time to celebrate all you have accomplished this past year and bring in the new; so have fun and be you always. If you’re looking for more inspiration check out our Pinterest or if would like help with styling, get in touch with us and make a booking.
