Once all of the Christmas parties are over and we have over indulged on Christmas Day, there is one more event to look forward to in 2018 – New Year’s Eve. Whether you are looking forward to the fresh start the New Year will bring, or just want an excuse to go out it is important to perfect your NYE look to bring in 2019 in style. With so much choice for party outfits this time of year, these are the key trends to look out for when choosing your outfit for New Year’s Eve.
1) Blazer Dress
This is a trend that has been all over the high street this season and allows you to make a statement whilst wearing an effortless piece. A blazer dress is the perfect outfit for NYE to look simple yet put together as it can easily be paired with heels for a formal event. Pretty Little Thing have a great variety of blazer dresses in differing fits, colours and patterns which are still appropriate for a student budget!
2) Sequin Jumpsuits
Sequins are renowned for New Year’s Eve, yet wearing a jumpsuit is a stylish twist from the stereotypical sequin bodycon dress. If the thought of a sequin jumpsuit seems intimidating, look out for one with black sequins as this often appears subtler. Miss Selfridge, Topshop and Missguided are all offering a range of sequin jumpsuits for you to experiment with this New Year.
3) Satin Dress
Satin dresses have grown in popularity over the past year, providing a classy look suitable for bringing in 2019 in style without having to venture into sequins. Websites such as Oh Polly and Missguided provide bodycon satin dresses which would be appropriate for a clubbing event, yet these styles of dresses paired with a faux fur jacket provide an elegant look for more formal celebrations. Equally, In The Style and Topshop are providing satin dresses in looser fits, with wrap dresses being incredibly popular.
A trend that never goes out of style, you cannot go wrong wearing an LBD for the New Year! These are easy to dress up or down and paired with sequin accessories can look entirely appropriate for New Year’s Eve. Buying an LBD is incredibly versatile as it is likely you will get multiple wears from it and paired with different accessories can create a variety of looks. River Island is offering LBDs in a range of styles from the classic bodycon dress to slip dresses and wrap dresses, meaning you will find something to suit your style.
Knowing what to wear on New Year’s Eve can often be overlooked by events in the build up to Christmas taking precedence. However, we all want to start 2019 feeling our best and there is no better way to start by wearing an outfit you feel confident in. Nonetheless, if you don’t have any events on December the 31st, it is entirely acceptable to bring in the New Year wearing pyjamas and eating all those leftover Christmas chocolates!
