When the clock strikes 12, you want to look your best, and attract the attention of the cutie across the room in time for a New Year’s kiss. Here are some outfit ideas inspired by celebrities to ring in the new year.
Leather top like Ashley Greene
Don a leather top with a sleek pair of pants or skin-tight skirt for a dominatrix-inspired, commanding look. Leather is warm, yet form-fitting so it’s a great choice for party hopping on a chilly night.
Party Pants like Kiernan Shipka
A huge trend in party dressing this season are embellished pants. Whether yours are adorned in mermaid-like sequins, or made of a rich iridescent brocade fabric, rock them with a silk blouse or streamlined blazer for a cool and comfortable look.
Take a cue from Taylor Swift’s blockbuster album this year, and wear a bright, festive frock in this colour. While it might seem like “last week’s Christmas red,” traditions say that wearing the colour (often on your underwear) will bring good luck into the new year. Red is a hot colour and goes well with black or while. Dress it up with an embellished belt or statement jewelry, and you’ll be sure to be the belle of the ball!
A full skirt like Jessica Alba
Don this ladylike trend with a full circle skirt that hits just below the knees. This style is more formal, so it’s great for dinner parties or more conservative events. Pair it with a black turtleneck to channel Jessica Alba, or a cropped tee to make the skirt less stuffy. Whether you pick a skirt in tulle, chiffon or a thicker fabric, make sure that the material falls into an A-Line, and that the skirt rises above your natural waist to pull off this trend.
LBD like Ashley Madekwe
You can never go wrong with a little black dress. This season, the classic gets an update in fun, form-fitting scuba fabrics, peplums and tulip skirt silhouettes. Pick one out in a daring silhouette or fabric, and dress it up with your favourite pair of heels, some crystal jewelry or a bright shade of lipstick.
