New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day are one of the biggest days for partying and the date is fast approaching. If you are in need of some last minute outfit inspiration then we have a few tips to help you stand out and ensure that you have the most stylish ensemble.
The Cocktail Party
Women’s Cocktail Party Style Tips
New Year’s Eve is the one night of the year where too much is never enough. It’s your time to shine, so opt for gold and silver sequinned flare frocks, glitter infused jackets and blazers and crystal embellished necklines.
If all that glitter and sequins is not for you, then white on white styling looks fabulous and fresh and fringing is always another lovely and elegant option. Metallic prints are a way to introduce shine to your wardrobe and this works well for cute mini-skirts which you can tone down with a classic black peplum or a simple bandeau top.
Every woman owns a little black dress and this is always a great NYE option because you will feel comfortable and confident in your outfit, not to mention that you will be able to glam it up with a statement jewelled necklace and heels.
If you are a girl who prefers pants, high-waisted trousers always look sophisticated; why not pair yours with a subtle sheer shirt and a great pair of heels.
Don’t forget, accessories are just as important as your clothing options and we recommend complementing your outfit with elegant clutches and simple classy jewellery pieces such as chic diamond studs or pearls.

Aim for blazers and contrasting pants for a cocktail party. Incorporate novel pocket squares for a festive touch and ensure your other accessories lend refinement to your aesthetic. As usual, your shoes will be a focal point so go for patent loafers or traditional oxfords.
The Festival Party
Women’s Festival Party Style Tips
If you are headed to a festival to welcome in 2017, then you will want a casually cool outfit. Release your inner hippie and bohemian influences and embrace the natural look.
Earthy tones are a key for this trend, but you can always include a little colour to stand out from the crowd. Your festival basics include long floaty skirts, cut off shorts, furry gilets, simple vests, colourful embroidered tunics, and stylish cropped jackets. Loose fitted clothing, beading, embroidery and crochet details are also great for expressing your creativity and fashion freedom.
Complete your look with hats or flower garlands and multiple long necklaces. Whether you choose to wear casual sandals or the Wild West inspired cowboy boots to complete your look, one thing is for sure you will look effortlessly chic and beautiful in your bohemian-inspired clothing choice.
Men’s Festival Party Style Tips
Keep things relaxed yet dimensional for your festival looks. Opt for singlets or tees with graphic prints. Ripped denim will work well or you can try out bright coloured shorts perfect for summery vibes. Classic trainers likes Converse, Vans or Nikes will keep things chilled and practical.

The Pool Party
Women’s Pool Party Style Tips
If you are lucky enough to be spending your NYE in a hot climate then pool parties are one of the quintessential ways to celebrate the summer climate.
Relax and soak up the atmosphere around the poolside with your stylish outfit. You can’t go wrong with a cute pair of denim shorts to make you look effortlessly chic. Pair your shorts with your number one pool party essential: a sexy swimsuit and simple low cut vests.
If shorts and tees aren’t your thing, then opt for a more conservative and feminine choice like a comfortable maxi dress. Summer is all about colour so why not choose bright bold colours and prints to ensure that you stand out from the crowd.
Don’t forget your pool-ready sandals or if you’d prefer to glam up your look then opt for lace-up sandals. Statement necklaces, a few bangles and mini shoulder bags are also great accessories to complete your look.
Men’s Pool Party Style Tips
For relaxed pool looks, opt for lightweight fabrics in diluted hues. Loose chambray shirts are easy, so opt for them in washed out blue tones or cotton whites for a classic touch. Above the knee shorts will sustain this aesthetic, lending a relaxed element to your outfit. Espadrilles or boat shoes will work well to complete your pool look.
