New Years Eve Outfit Inspiration

Sunday, 30 December 2012

With the festive season well and truly under-way, and New Years just around the corner, it's time to start thinking about that all-important New Years Eve outfit. Yes, the party season is filled with plenty of night outs, Christmas parties and family gatherings, but the ultimate party-to-end-all-parties has GOT to be New Years Eve. Even more so this year, considering the speculation of the world ending - which it quite obviously didn't. Another reason to celebrate 2012! 

With a great party, comes a great outfit. New Years Eve is the one night we girls can really get dolled up to the nines, pull out all the stops and truly glam it up. No 'safe' outfits should be seen on New Years Eve - it's all about show-stopping, 'look at me', full-blown party outfits. No one ever calls anyone 'over-dressed' on New Years Eve, after-all. Ladies, you have no excuse!

Now the question is, do you have your outfit planned? If not, never fear! I've put together three sure-fire 'WOW' outfits to give you some much-needed inspiration. 

Girlish Glitz
Dress: River Island, £50
Clutch: Accessorize, £25
Ring: Accessorize, £15
Earrings: Miss Selfridge, £12.50
Shoes: Next, £48

If you're anything like me (the ultimate girly-girl) you will not be able to resist this outfit. I'm a HUGE fan of pale pink any time of the year, but this divine pale rose dress from River Island is truly stunning, and will be sure to turn many a head on New Years Eve. Paired with glitzy-glam accessories, you'll be sure to sparkle in this beautiful gown.

Sexy Sparkle
Dress: Motel Rocks, £58
Earrings: Butler & Wilson via QVC, £19.20
Clutch: New Look, £12
Hairpiece: Crown & Glory, £8
Boots: Topshop, £90

This is actually my favourite outfit of the three, as it just screams 'quirky cool', stand-out sexiness. This Motel dress is such a treat to look at - its shimmery sequin texture combined with mermaid-like iridescent green/turquoise colour makes it a total eye-catcher. You could keep it simple and pair with black accessories, but where's the fun in that? I'd go all out in the mermaid department and wear it with a plethora of other turquoise/blue/green accessories. I'm in love with the New Look clutch, and think those Topshop boots are seriously fierce - all you need now are some Ariel-esque scarlet locks and you're good to go as the perfect New Year mermaid! 

Grown-up Glamour
Dress: Lipsy VIP, £160
Shoes: Missguided, £34.99
Earrings: ASOS, £30
Ring: Accessorize, £12
Clutch: Oasis via ASOS, £22.50

Fancy yourself as a bit of a glamour goddess? Then this outfit is most definitely for you. Okay, so the dress is by far the priciest of the lot, but it is completely beautiful, and you just know you'll feel a million dollars wearing it. It's also guaranteed to make you stand out from the majority of short-skirted party-goers; this fish-tail design screams sex appeal without showing too much flesh. Paired with simple silver accessories (how stunning are those earrings!?) it is the definition of 'show-stopper'. Simply gorgeous. 

Are you all set for New Years Eve? Let me know which of these outfits is your favourite!
