Black Tie or Cocktail Party?
There are a few different kinds of parties around this time of the year, and each one requires a different dress code. The two most popular are black tie events and cocktail parties. The black tie events are self explanatory: suits, ties and evening gowns will be expected. Then there are cocktail parties, which usually happen after work. This is where your handy cocktail dress comes in, or even a matching separates combo, which you can even wear for work and then accessorise for later that evening.
Some of the hottest trends this year — velvet, metallics, and sequins — belong in your NYE outfit. Go for a crushed velvet mini dress paired with tights and over the knee boots, or maybe a shimmering ombre midi skirt with a sleek turtleneck. If you prefer more minimal looks, incorporating these trends into your accessories — like metallic bags, jewelled earrings, or velvet heels — can be more subtle.
It’s important to branch out when you’re shopping for holiday outfits. Try something you wouldn’t normally pick up, and try on whole outfits at once. A circle skirt will never look good with the t-shirt you wore to the mall, and an evening gown won’t look right with trainers.
