What Should I Wear For New Years Eve?
New Years Eve is a fashion lover's dream. It's the night that sparks a whole new year of trends and fashion evolutions. New Years Eve is also a time where no matter where you are or what you do to celebrate, dressing to the nines is expected and taken to a whole new level of glamourous. I'm sure what you are going to wear for the New Years Eve festivities ahead has crossed your mind at least 3 times in the last hour - It has probably crossed my mind at least 60 times in this past day. This anxiety of finding the perfect dress for New Years, helped me leap into action for this next post. I did some serious fashion research to find some fabulous style ideas for New Years Eve that will help me narrow down the type of look I want to go for this year and hopefully I can help you out too. Although I plan to carry a backup dress in case anyone is wearing the same dress as me- kidding kidding, but seriously. Check out these 5 New Years Eve Dresses paired with accessories (of course) and that range in style and fit for every personality. Find which outfit suits you best to bring in the New Year with fashion forward style.
Style 1: Glitzy and Dazzling
Gold Sequin Low Back Zip Dress ($57 (£35) - desireclothing.co.uk), Polygon Jewel Pendant Earrings ($13 - romwe.com), Stud Hard Frame Purse ($40 - topshop.com), Isola Dallan - Blackberry Suede ($188 - shoeline.com)
This Glamourous look will have your style stand out for sure. I love the sequin gold dress from Desire Clothing reminds me of sparkling champagne, which is perfect for the New Year. The champagne color of the dress looks ravishing paired against the bold burgundy coloring of the Isola Dallan Shoes, Stud frame purse, and jewel pendant earrings. Burgundy is still a prime color of this season and I love its rich, deep undertones as seen in this outfit. This look is the perfect collection for someone who loves to stand out in confidence. I can see this style worn by Jennifer Lopez or Beyonce who would look just dazzling strutting the red carpet in this ensemble.
Style 2: Elegance in Emerald
Swarovski Emerald Green Earrings ($27 - etsy.com), Black/Black shift dress ($55 - dorothyperkins.com), Only Faux Fur Jacket ($110 $49 (£30) - republic.co.uk), Tri Lock Merino Clutch ($96 - topshop.com), Emerald Green Bracelet ($18 - etsy.com), Sofft Manhattan in Emerald Green Suede ($118.95 - Shoeline.com)
There is nothing more classic than a fitted, black dress to bring in the New Year. By adding Emerald accessories as seen in this look, it gives a modern day twist to the little black dress, making this outfit a perfect option for a New Years Eve Party in the City. I can just see this outfit on Audrey Hepburn as she floats through a classy New Years Eve Gala held on 5th Avenue - looking timeless and beautiful. You can never go wrong with a little black dress but you can make it better with the added lace shown in this Dorothy Perkins Dress and by adding bold rich colors to accessorize. Amp up this look with a faux fur coat to add more glamour to you look and of course, to help keep you warm throughout the night.
Style 3: Meet Me At Midnight
Accessorize Ballroom Clutch ($68 - accessorize.com), Easy Street Tidal in Silver Satin ($50 - shoeline.com), Silver Ridge Bangles ($24 - baublebar.com), Rhinestone Snowflake Stud Earrings ($6 - charlotterusse.com), Cocktails with Co-workers – Dress ($74.99- modcloth.com)
This is the perfect romantic look for an elegant New Years Party. I love the midnight blue paired with the sparkly silver glow of the gemstones on the dress. This look reminds me of a fairytale in a sense that it has a dreamy, elegance to it with its cool coloring and sparkly glow. Almost like a modern day Cinderella story, this dress is perfect for a romantic New Years spent with romantic date. However, if you are going to wear this beautiful dress, that date better take you some place nice - and he better be looking sharp too! Go ahead, tell him I said so!
Style 4: Glamour Queen
Dark red elegant sweetheart ($63 - etsy.com), Tinley Road Five Bangles ($34 - piperlime.gap.com), Accessorize Embellished Wrist Strap ($29 - accessorize.com), Isola Nara in Wheat Suede/Madreperla Viper ($171 - shoeline.com)
This outfit reminds me of Pretty in Pink with a glitzy twist. I love the empire waste of this Burgandy Dress on Etsy, it reminds me of a medieval princess or greek goddess. I love how this outfit, similar to the Glitzy and Dazzling ensemble, brings back the champagne colors mixed with deep burgundy it is just so picturesque and graceful. Add a high stilletto such as the Isola Nara to give the "pretty" some glam girl edge. Put on this outfit and youll be the beauty queen of the party.
Style 5: Long into the Night
Sofft Geneva in Champagne ($107 - shoeline.com), Vila Sheeny Clutch ($26 (£16) - vila.com), ALDO Mullally earrings ($10 - aldoshoes.com), Black Diamond Dress ($100 - ricketyrack.com), Love Nail Tree Manacle Bracelet ($42 - swell.com)
Last, but certainly not least is the look for the party girl who brings the fun! Adding amp to the simple black dress with glitter details on the bodice make this Black Diamond Dress from Ricketyrack.com one of my favorites. With matching champagne colored heels such as the Sofft Geneva, the outfit really pops. I love the strappy details of the Sofft Geneva dress shoes, the add more excitement to the outfit and give it a daring edge to make the party last long into the night. Slip into this sexy outfit and grab some noise-makers because this will be a night you will never forget!
