For some, it is the highlight of the Christmas season, one last hurrah for the year and one extravagant champagne toast to the year ahead. For others, it is little more than an excuse to curl up at home with some good food and your nearest and dearest, watching the revelry from afar and falling asleep long before Auld Lang Syne rings out. Wherever you will be when the clock strikes 12 this New Year’s Eve, we have an outfit to ensure that you welcome 2017 in style.
If you live and die by the high heel and LBD formula, house parties can be something of a challenge. More casual than a night on the town, dressier than your usual night at a friend’s place, a New Year’s Eve house party calls for Jacob Cohen denim and a sheer, sexy shirt, like this black lace pussy-bow number by Michael Kors. Add a Michael Kors Elsie Quilted Box Clutch in a metallic hue to bring a little extra glamour to proceedings.
HAVING A BALL
If there is one time of year that calls for pure, unadulterated style and sophistication, it is New Year’s Eve. A New Year’s ball is your chance to opt for full-length, pile on the Soru Jewellery, treat yourself to a new clutch and steal the show as the belle of the ball.
SOFA, SO GOOD
Is there anything more satisfying than seeing in the New Year from the comfort of your own sofa? If the thought of double-fare taxis, queueing in the cold and pouring those extra festive pounds into a little black bodycon number fills you with dread, start 2017 in POLO Ralph Lauren cashmere knits and super-soft Wolford layers instead.
TABLE FOR TWO
Black may be most people’s go-to for New Year’s Eve dressing but seeing in the New Year over the flicker of candlelight in your favourite restaurant calls for a something more romantic. Add strappy sandals and a statement red lip to this Michael Kors Red Flounce Dress and we can almost guarantee you a kiss at midnight.
When your watch strikes cocktails o’clock, you need to up the ante with sequins, lace, ruffles, sheer panels and super-sleek cuts. New Year’s nights out are traditionally a time to unleash the glitter but the key lay in going the whole hog and embracing New York’s Studio 54 era with this season’s platform sandals, smoky eyes and plenty of attitude. This Armani Jeans Boxy Faux Fur will leave you laughing in the face of the taxi queue come 3am.
