Never mind what are you doing New Year's Eve - what are you wearing? Personal stylist, Style Guile blogger and the first ever winner of our School Runway competition, Beth Goodrham, reveals what to wear on New Year's Eve with 7 easy pieces. Over to you, Beth...
New Year's Eve - one of the most exciting nights of the year! So, what to wear to make sure you're the bell of the ball? Whether you are celebrating at Trafalgar Square, at a house party, in a club or at home, it just happens to be one of those events when we feel that something special is needed.
Gorgeous gold will make you stand out from the crowd. This fantastic pair of Precious Trousers from Hobbs needs little by way of accessories. Team with heels and a black tux and you will be instantly glamorous. For a more casual look, opt for a skinny black polo neck. The Precious Dress (pictured top, with the white coat), also from Hobbs is fantastic for those wanting to show off their pins!
This season black is all about texture. So, if black is your 'go to' look for an evening out, look to leather, lace, or embellished pieces to keep you bang on trend for when those fireworks start! Marks & Spencer has this fabulous lace dress which, with a leather jacket worn over it, works in another texture so nails two trends in one. Shoe boots would also add an edge to it.
Feminine floral prints add another dimension to the usual scene stealers for an evening out. Stand out from the crowd in bold and beautiful blooms, such as this Antonia dress from Hobbs. Reference the pretty colours in your accessories - gold, pinks and purples - there is a colour to catch everyone's eye.
New Year's Eve is all about fireworks, fizz and fun! Sparkle you way through the evening in sequins. From this sequinned blazer from Boden which would look fantastic with your favourite jeans and heels, to this sequin pencil skirt from A/Wear which flatters ladies with curves, sequins are a sure-fire way to get the party started.
Start the year as you mean to go on - bold, bright and beautiful in colour. This gorgeous dress by Gant by Michael Bastain will get you noticed for all the right reasons. Team with shoes in the same colour for colour block, or with a bright contrasting colour for colour clash - be brave, be bold and have fun!
