As soon as glitter and sparkles start flooding the online shopping websites and physical stores alike, there is no doubt we start counting down the party of all parties during this festive season, which of course is New Year’s Eve. The night in itself presents enough of a sartorial challenge as there are many aspects to consider when concocting your head-turning look, and it turns out you can stand out in something that does not necessarily involve glitter or feature a single sequin for that matter. The best way to stand out in the sequin ocean of predictable party dresses, is to color-block from head-to-toe in the boldest colors you can imagine mixing. Pink and Red breathe festive spirit and sophistication while a bold yellow bottom and jungle green jacket are a match made in (cocktail dressing) heaven.

NYE also is the time to bring out textures that we tend to forgo in our day-to-day wardrobes. Tulle skirts are a wonderful alternative to the full midi-skirts we all know too well and tap into the ballerina aesthetic we saw on the catwalk for AW16. A glorious tutu-inspired skirt will lift a bodysuit and pointy flats for a party-ready look! Up your dress game whether with unusual sheer inserts and panels on a maxi dress or vibrant prints and elaborate surface work like brocade or jacquard. Challenge the traditional dress choices and welcome the new year in splendor with an frilly hem, peplum detailing and embrace rich textures like feather trims or fringing, which will all give your festive look an even more upscale feel.
