How to dress for new years eve

New years eve parties come in different settings, they can be at someone's home, at a chic location or in the club, but wherever they are held they all have one thing in common: you're supposed to wear festive and fancy new years eve attire at this party! This means that you can pull your most beautiful cocktail dresses out of your closet to celebrate the end of the year and the beginning of a new one!

  • Go for a dress in a  dressy fabric and a seasonal color. Since new years eve is such a special holiday it is also possible to wear dresses with special features like glitters and sequences of dresses in gold and silver. Beware because these dresses can easily look cheap or tacky, so if you do this, than go for a dress with a more expensive look to it. Also make sure that you then keep your accessories very simple otherwise it will become too much.

  • Make sure that you combine your dress with some magnificent pumps or elegant high heeled open sandals in a color that matches with your dress.
  • Go for a small clutch in a color that goes with your outfit. a large bag will dress you down because it looks more casual.
  • Wear your best accessories for a more glamorous look. Go for lovely eye catching earrings with a bracelet, or go for a stunning necklace if this doesn't compete with the neckline of your dress. If you wear a necklace then we recommend to keep your earrings really small or to leave them out. As we have already said, If your dress is more sparkly than keep the accessories small and simple.
  • Don't forget to put on some makeup. For a beautiful dramatic look we recommend to draw attention to your eyes or to your lips, but choose one of the two and keep the rest simple and natural.
  • Put some effort in your hair. Go for a festive updo or keep it simple by showing off your gorgeous loose curls. If you wear nothing in your hair, make sure it looks at it's best.
