What to wear New Year’s Eve

Nikki ParkinsonFashion, How to 15 Comments

The last evening of the year seems to be something that we spend a lot of time anticipating but that doesn’t necessarily pan out to be a GREAT night.

If you have kids and don’t have a selfless babysitter on tap then the reality is a night in hoping that you’ll stay awake past the kids’ fireworks; if you have teenagers then you’ll most probably fall asleep sober and have an alarm set ready to do a pick-up; if you are free of all such handbrakes on a night out or you’re hosting one at home, then this post is for you. Good luck with the taxis!

We’ve already ticked off what to wear on Christmas Day … but, like that day, what to wear New Year’s Eve will depend on if and how you’re celebrating.

Staying in and not seeing anyone, nothing wrong with some pyjamas, I say.

Having friends over or heading out? Then think about the level of dress required and go from there.

The below examples will also work for any party invite or gathering through the summer holidays.

I’ve covered off on a pants outfit – with bling of course; a short frock and a maxi dress.

All three base outfits could be dressed up or down depending on the shoes or accessories you chose to work with them.

If you are heading out, then don’t hold back on the glam factor. If there ever was a night of the year to do it, it’s this one.

Use these ideas for inspiration when shopping from your existing wardrobe too.

You might just find that you have a piece or two that hasn’t been out to party in a while and certainly deserve to do so.

  4. We’re staying in on New Year’s Eve, as we have a few other nights out planned during this week. So on the 31st I’ll most likely be in a floaty dress, but I’d love the details of the number 4 and 5 items in the pants outfit.

  5. We will be in Mackay visiting my son and his family. No doubt he will cook up a storm and my daughter-in-law is the dessert queen of the family, so something loose and flowy for me!
