That’s why it’s so important to look and feel your best, start the year as you mean to go on. Whether you’re heading out for some serious partying in the city, staying in for a house party or simply keeping it low key with family, we’ve got an outfit for you that will truly wow. Ring in the new year and shake an Auld Lang’s Syne in style.

The Gala Ball Wonder

Buying a ticket for a gala ball is a spectacular way to spend New Year’s Eve. You’ll never have to fight for a table, dinner and dancing is included and if you’re feeling extra fancy, you might even choose to spend the night in the hotel. You obviously want your outfit to slay in such a lavish setting, so opt for a floor length dress with seductive details to flatter your best bits. We’re loving the beaded bodice trend at the moment and the holiday period is the perfect excuse to don some glitz and glamour. Pair with an equally striking cape to ramp up the texture and brave the cold in some strappy heels. Finish off your gala ball wonder outfit with sophisticated accessories like a complimentary brooch and statement earrings. Don’t forget to coif those tresses into smooth curls or a sleek up do for full effect.

The Clubber’s Paradise

The sophisticated ball isn’t everyone’s cup of eggnog. Perhaps you’re more of a clubbing fanatic who loves nothing more than to dance the night away under the strobe lights. For the ultimate clubber’s outfit, go micro mini! Show off those pins and keep it sparkly for maximum effect under the lights of the club. If you’re a regular clubbing expert, you’ll know lines can be long and there can be a lot of waiting time out in the cold. Don’t forget to wear a warm but stylish coat that you can off load in the cloak room once you’re in. Sky scraping heels might look the bomb but if you want to make it to midnight and beyond, lower your heel a little for extra comfort. The last thing you want is sore feet before the clock strikes. Funky platforms are a great way to keep the height you adore with less pain in your arches! Finish off the look with a chunky ring and choker necklace and you’re ready to dance until dawn.

The House Party

The classic house party gets a bad rep but wide can’t understand why. Sure it’s a little 80’s but who doesn’t love a bit of retro. House parties usually mean an abundance of cheap alcohol, people crashing on sofas and often a very late night! It also means that you can bring a large bag, hide it in one of the bedrooms and nobody had to know you have a change of clothes for tomorrow, a spare pair of flats and even a whole makeup set buried away in the there for top ups! The heat of bodies and the option to control the heating also means you can get away without a jacket too. Try a sexy, asymmetric jumpsuit as your base and build some statement accessories around it.

Pull on an oversized jumper dress with soft cotton tights and since you’re in the house, you can wear your fluffy slippers!
