Yes, even if you are intending to stay on the couch...

The black-tie event


Not a dress kind of girl? They're not the only one-and-done option for New Year's Eve dressing. The right jumpsuit can make as much of a statement but looks all the more effortless. Make the most of floor-grazing hems with leg-lengthening platform heels and add a few carefully selected accessories for that extra special touch.

 

The house party

 

There’s no hard and fast rule that says thou shalt wear cocktail attire on December 31st. In fact, the trick to looking effortlessly stylish is often to take the opposite approach, keeping your clothes simple and classic—think jeans and a nice top (the age-old going out outfit formula that never fails). Organza blouses were a popular choice this summer but they’re back again for party season, this time in a chic black iteration that will add a careful touch of drama to your denim.

The family get-together


With all the high-octane pieces out there for party season, it can be tempting to play it safe with minimal pieces and retreat into your trusty little black dress, but before you dismiss sequins completely, hear us out when we tell you that a statement midi skirt is more versatile than you might first think. The simple silhouette makes for easy styling: dress it down with graphic tee and trainers in smart/casual situations, or elevate it with black knitwear and heels.

 

Heading out-out

For those of us who feel that no expense can be spared on a New Year’s Eve outfit, French Connection has you covered, zebra print sequins and all. The darker undertones in this mini give it a rock 'n' roll feel, which means it looks just as good with a more feminine heel as it does with ankle boots. There’s no better way to start a new decade than in your most glittery finest, we say.

 

Slobbing out

 

Sometimes the only thing better than getting dressed up to go out is getting dressed for an evening in, especially after a jam-packed December. Not that we need extra reason to stay in bed, but these loungewear pieces will definitely have you cancelling any January plans in favour of staying in to spend some quality time with your sofa and any edible Christmas hampers.
