Champagne. Mistletoe. Confetti. Noise makers.
Ladies, your favorite holiday drinks may have just come out at Starbucks but New Year’s Eve will be here faster than the ball drops at Times Square. And it’s never too early to find that perfect dress to wear to your New Year’s Eve event.
If you follow us on Pinterest (if you don’t, pssst : what are you waiting for?) you may have noticed we’ve been pinning photos under our Cocktails and Champagne Dresses board that we love and think can serve as great inspiration for finding the perfect NYE dress for you!
Here are a few NYE Dress styles we love this year!
Little Black NYE Dress (obviously!)
This is a given. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again (and again, and again if necessary!) The little black dress is perfect for any event. New Year’s Eve is no exception.
Do your plans entail a night on the town at a club or a cocktail party? We recommend a cocktail style, short, little black dress. The ballerina tutu inspired dress, fitted on top, big on the bottom is a favorite this year. Headed to a black tie event? Opt for a longer, classier black dress. A lower cut will draw attention to your neckline and give your figure an elongated appearance. Pair with an updo and drop earrings for a polished, classic piece.
We Love Pastels.
This year, warm pinks and champagne colours are in! It’s romantic. It’s feminine. It’s anything but the dark colours usually associated with winter. Lace is a popular material this year and lace dresses are often seen in pastels. It’s also a great option if you’re looking to step away from the little black dress for the night.
Embrace Old Hollywood
Hollywood has always been associated with being glamorous and fabulous. It should come as no surprise that old Hollywood style is making a comeback this year for holiday dresses. Classic style dresses (we love a modern flapper dress) paired with large jewelry (pearls and faux-diamonds) complete the look and go exceptionally well if you’re going to a New Year’s Eve theme party from the roaring twenties or classic 1940’s.
Sequins & Metallic NYE Dresses
Sequins just scream party and party is the universal theme for New Year’s Eve. This year, short sequined dresses with long sleeves are very in-style and a guaranteed head turner. Similarly, metallics (silver or bronze coloured dresses) look great with a pair of black heels and a leather clutch – giving off a sexy vixen look that’s sure to draw attention to you at midnight.
Let’s Take This NYE Party Outdoors
Headed to a New Year’s Eve party that may involve some time spent outside on a patio or outdoors watching fireworks? Contrary to popular belief – this doesn’t mean you need to drag out the long johns and parka. Choose a sexy wrap dress with long sleeves (to add a little extra warmth) and pair with a festive peacoat or winter trench.
