New Years Eve is everyone’s chance to glam up and go out
Unless of course you have children and no babysitter but let’s not dwell on that!
Looking glam doesn’t have to cost the earth though. My grandmother used to say as long as you have one nice piece of jewellery you can dress anything up.
Here are x ideas for outfits that look fabulous but won’t break the bank:
The classic little black dress
You can invest in an expensive little black dress that you can wear over and over, or you can buy one relatively cheaply and accessorize. A nice pair of shoes or sandals, jewellery and a slick of red lipstick. Perfect!
Jeans and a top
There are jeans to suit every body type. Boyfriend, skinny, wide leg, straight, boot cut. You can pay as little or as much for a pair of jeans as you like. Jeans are very versatile and can be dressed up or down. Pair a pair of skinny jeans with a sparkly top and you are on to a winner. Add a pair of heels and you have your New Years Eve outfit.
Don’t be fooled into thinking that jumpsuits are only for tall, slender people. They can suit lots of shapes and sizes and some have been designed to hide the bits that some of us want to hide. They are particularly fashionable at the moment and look great with both heels and flats. Add a chiffon scarf for a 50s feel – think Grease. Grab your Danny and dance the night away!
Nothing says chic like a pair of classic wide leg trousers. Plain, stripe or patterned you can’t really go wrong. Or maybe capri pants are more your thing? Or skinny, cropped, cigar whatever your preferred style pop on a tie neck shirt and fitted jacket and you have yourself a killer outfit.
Maxi dresses aren’t just for the summer. Maxi dresses can be very glam at this time of year. Not quite a ball gown but more than a little black dress. Whether you go for a plain block colour, pattern, stripe or even sequins – it’s up to you! All you need to do is choose your shoes or sandals to compliment your dress.
I always change my handbag for nights out. Mainly because my day one is full of sticks, stones, dummies and other child-related paraphernalia. My handbag of choice is a simple black shoulder bag, big enough for my purse, a lipstick and keys.
