Nothing screams New Year's like some sparkle, and there isn’t a more perfect night for you to bring out your fave shiny items. A sequin-embellished skirt or a sequinned tank paired with skinny jeans and high heels are perfect for bailing you out on this special occasion. Even a sequinned clutch is enough to work some glitter magic. (As long as you don’t go OTT with some head-to-toe sparkle, you're sorted!)

No, we don’t mean a boring shawl but a cover-up so gorgeous that it’s enough to elevate your entire outfit. An embellished shrug or a sheer jacket is perfect for adding that extra something to your style. Silks and metallic are also a great idea. An oh-so-chic wrap or cover-up is just what you need to top off your ensemble with some unexpected glam.

We all have an interesting skirt (or few) at the bottom of our closets that we just never seem to wear for some reason. Now is the time to take it out for a spin. A simple tank, pretty blouse or cute crop top is all you need to pair with a bright maxi skirt, a flirty mini or a retro midi. Fun prints or a bright solid colour – anything will do. A skirt is perfect for bringing some feminine charm to your festive fashion.

You know, it doesn’t even have to be about what you wear but how you add to it! You can go simple and let your accessories do all the talking with a gorgeous pair of danglers, a colourful cocktail ring or a stunning necklace. Even a stack of bangles or an interesting pair of heels can really help make your look. Trade all that sparkle for lots of gold, stick to a classic string of pearls, or go bold with opulent chandelier earrings – whatever helps your personal style shine through will automatically look fabulous.

A sleek ponytail, a side-swept style or a messy, romantic bun can help do wonders for your look. Instead of just leaving it loose as always, trying something different – even a move as simple as changing up your part can really make you shine. Sparkly hairbands or pins can also help do the trick.
