Whether you’re attending a small event or celebrating in style with friends, New Year’s Eve is all about glitz and glamour—and these party outfits have a heavy dose. New Year’s Eve is your time to shine. Dazzle in sequins and shimmer, and stand out in a crowd with our trendy fashion tips.
1. Go backless
Bare skin is sexy in small doses, so when showing off your back, keep a conservative front (no cleavage, please!). Trust us—you won’t need to panic about getting that perfect midnight kiss.
2. Work black and gold
These two colours are bold yet sophisticated when worn together. Try a little black dress with gold jewellery and other golden accessories. Everyone’s eyes will be on you.
3. Get your sparkle on
New Year’s Eve is the one night of the year when a sparkly piece is a no-brainer. A classic sequined dress is festive and eye-catching. If that’s too much flash for you, try a dazzling skirt or top.
4. Leather up
Change up your usual denim jeans for a pair of black leather pants or a pencil skirt. Add an oversize sweater or shirt to balance the slim proportion on the bottom.
5. Ready your poncho
One of the most wearable and comfortable trends this season is the poncho. The blanket-style coverup will keep your look casual yet elegant. Pair its fullness with a plain shirt and slim pants.
6. Play the match game
Celebrities such as Taylor Swift and Mindy Kaling are obsessed with the ’70s matching set. Blow everyone away with a dark-hued shirt-and-pant combo in a matching fabric.
7. Don a trench
New Year’s Eve can be one of the coldest nights of the year, so a trench coat is often essential to finish off your outfit. Try a long coat and a pair of patterned tights (if you’re wearing a dress or a skirt) to keep you warm and stylish at the same time.
8. Draw attention up
Add a pair of eyeglasses to your emsemble and you’re set. This extra accessory adds just a dash of sparkle to a stylish outfit.
Red lips can transform a basic outfit into something fierce. Wear a neutral eyeshadow hue so your lips are the focus.
Shimmer and shake
Wear a shimmery eyeshadow with matching eyeliner to accentuate your eyes, or try nude lips with a bright, shimmery blush on your cheeks.
There’s nothing sexier than a little black eyeliner and a bold plum lip.
