Nothing To Wear

2. Smokin’ In Leather

Nothing To Wear

Accents of leather can do wonders for sexing up your style. Now is the time to pair those comfy faux leather pants with sky-high heels or adding a leather jacket to a girly dress for a racy edge. It’ll help you stay warm on a chilly New Year’s night while helping you get pulses rising without needing to show too much skin. Plus, you don’t even need to worry about ironing when you wear leather!

3. The LBD to the Rescue

Nothing To Wear

It may seem obvious, but you really can’t go wrong with your favourite Little Black Dress. Have fun mixing and matching with statement accessories or go minimal with classic pearls. Bold lips, knee-high boots, a pretty belt - the sky's the limit when it comes to flaunting your accessory game with this versatile wardrobe wonder. Check out these celebs rocking the LBD for some major style inspiration.

4. Sequins in Small Doses

Nothing To Wear

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!)

5. The Chic Cover-Up

Nothing To Wear

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.

6. Skirting the Issue

Nothing To Wear

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.

7. Up Your Accessory Game


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.

8. Change Up Your Hair

Nothing To Wear

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.
