Whatever your plans, polls reveal that most of us are going to be going ‘all out’ to welcome 2018 with a bang. New Year’s eve is the opportunity to play dress up and have fun with pieces that you will style at your leisure. Ahead of the big night, we have compiled four looks that aren’t overrated and you can take our style word for it.
The no sequins, no glitter formula.
Not a conventional NYE outfit idea indeed but one that will undoubtedly add a sense of confidence enabled through a sophisticated and intricate silhouette. Opt for a full, midi-length skirt worn with a classic and crisp button-down and fabulous heels or maximize the festive appeal of fabrics and textures like jacquard and brocade. Dress up a more structured pencil skirt with over-sized crystal earrings and a metallic or printed dinner jacket worn over a classic crew-neck.
If silver, gold and bronze are a bit ‘been there, done that’ for you, enter frosted blue and pink tones and those are here to bring some excitement into your night of celebration. Whether you are going to a full-look with a smashing gilded dress a la Balmain, a mirrored slip dress as worn by Paris Hilton and more recently revived by Kendall Jenner or incorporating dashes of color through a skirt or eye-catching accessory, metallic textures create inimitable luster that will catch the light all night long.
It is elevated lounge-wear so you are ticking two boxes at once, style and comfort. Perfused across a luxe texture like velvet, jewel tones like emerald or purple add drama and perfectly compliment a look punctuated by opulent golden jewels for a formula that will not fail to put you in the party spirit. Finish the look with a dazzling pair of embellished heels or structured loafers for a more laid-back look. Bonus style points for this one as the stylish separated will perfectly integrate your regular wardrobe on their own too!
New Festive Codes
Red is a color most associated with festivities and it just so happens to be one of the biggest trends of Autumn/Winter 2017, seen on head-to-toe tonal looks everywhere from Max Mara to Givenchy. Bring out the sensuality during your party with a vibrant carmine tone or warm up your complexion with a deep burgundy. From your pout to your footwear, red will bring a note of splendidness on the most glamorous night of the year. Turn to Gucci for inspiration and sport a flowy red pantsuit or let red accents creep into your look through delicate textures like lace on a bodysuit that you can pair with everything from wide-legged pants to leather-look leggings. Add variety to your party look with a fusion of materials and challenge the rule book of festive dressing by embracing new and interesting silhouettes, cuts and textures.
