New Year's Eve - Fashion Clinic

New Year's Eve

The holiday season means party season, right? It may be chilly outside, but that doesn't mean we can't be sophisticated and stylish while keeping warm. Looking good always makes us feel more confident, and who doesn't want to be more confident? After all the office parties and Christmas parties come the New Year's Eve parties. 

The right outfit can enhance your party experience. Who doesn't enjoy getting compliments about their look? The opposite is also true. It can be a very long evening when you’re uncomfortable in your shoes or dress and feel like people are staring. Worry not if you aren't sure whether to go mini or do the glitter look; we’ve got you covered.

Go Short with Winter Dresses

The mini dress screams party and fun times, making it a perfect New Year's Eve party look. Luckily, there are many variations to the mini dresses. So you don't have to sacrifice warmth and comfort to look good. You can get mini winter dresses, too. 
This Saint Laurent draped wool mini dress is the answer, and it has long sleeves to keep the chill away. Its draped panel detailing offers a great cover-up without being stuffy. Pair it with a silver or gold bag like this 1969 Nano gold bag, and you’re ready to shimmy your way into a great new year. You can't go wrong with this ensemble; it's fun yet classy. 

Classic Black

A little black dress is a staple for any woman's wardrobe. So we suggest putting a twist on the old favourite for this New Year's Eve party. This Stella McCartney braided cut-out maxi dress combines a sophisticated black dress with the party glitter look. We all love black for its slimming effect, making us confident and powerful. You can add this Tom Ford velvet clutch ava crystal in black to complete your classic black party outfit. 
However, since not everybody likes dresses, we have the perfect solution for those who love a good pantsuit, even away from the office. You can create the ideal pantsuit with a playful Balmain lurex striped vest top, and striped wool blend flared trousers. The button details and lurex add a bit of party flair. You can add a shirt underneath to keep the chill away. Complete this luxurious look with these Christian Louboutin Lipchick patent leather pumps and dance the night away in style. 

Sparkle with a Glitter Look

Every girl wants to be the belle of the ball or, at the very least, of the New Year's Eve party. Sparkles and glitter are a great way to grab attention and be the talk of the party. While pulling off the glitter look, ensure you don't come off as tacky. 
We found this limited edition Tom Ford all-over sequins mini dress for the perfect sparkles. This dress ticks all the boxes. You can categorize it with winter dresses because it has long sleeves and a crew neck, but it's a mini dress in black. Pair this with Valentino Garavani metallic finish Rockstud sandals for the perfect sparkle effect, and you’ll be the belle of your New Year's Eve party. 


When putting together your killer outfit, don't forget the accessories. The right earrings or a statement bracelet can make a bold statement. Neck pieces are versatile because you can also wear them with winter dresses
Always look at the detailing and embellishment on your dress and outfit so you don't turn out and look like a Christmas tree. If your dress already has sparkles and braiding, then less is more. You can also wear accessories in your hair. A sparkling hair clip or a beret might be all the glam you need. 

Final Thoughts

Putting yourself together is a fun time. Shopping and comparing clothes should be an enjoyable process. Remember to be true to yourself. It's a good idea to look at social media for inspiration, but don't compare yourself to the story reels. Be true to your style, dress for your body and buy something you can wear again. Don't let the pressure of trends and social media get to you. So go out there, shop up a storm and have fun at your New Year's Eve party.
