Say hello to the dinner party of your dreams! There’s a landmark in Brisbane that is over 100 years old and this weekend you can spoil yourself silly with a ticket to a dazzling moonlit banquet right ontop of it. It’s the annual Long Table Dinner on Shorncliffe Pier hosted by Sandgate & Districts Chamber of Commerce – the pier being the pièce de résistance, of course.
New Year’s Eve is just around the corner and we all know that New Year’s Eve must start with the perfect outfit!
So whether you’re gearing up for a girls’ night out, a laidback house party or something in between, it’s important to consider the location and the dress code to start the new year with a bang.
Personal Stylist and Founder of Repeat Offender, Elisha Casagrande takes us through her top tips on how to style the perfect outfit to put an end to the dreaded what-to-wear dilemma on the biggest party night of the year!
Once you’ve jumped out of the pool, switch to a lace bra to keep your outfit looking feminine. Wear a classic button up shirt as a cover up or pair it with some shorts to slip in and out of as your jumping in and out of the pool!
Texture keeps an all-white outfit exciting and a hint of skin through the crochet is sexy but flattering! Look for unique design details like a textured hemline to elevate a white on white look.
Comfort is key for a New Year’s Eve house party. Take a casual yet edgy approach to ensure you’re in for the long haul. Wedge sneakers are the ultimate comfort for a night on your feet but also give you that extra height to create a more flattering shape for the legs and bottom.
Change up the look once the dancing starts by taking off the jeans for a cute mini!
Nightclub/ Bar Party
When wearing neutrals, add an accent shade like a metallic gold to create a more polished look. A statement necklace with a sweet-heart neckline draw attention toward the upper body & face, away from common problem areas below the waist.
When wearing a shorter style, look for vertical design details such as zips or panels on the bustier to lengthen the body and create a slimming effect.
A denim jacket adds a casual but chic element to a formal occasion. Add some rose gold, an understated shade that works perfectly with every skin-tone.
When choosing accessories, match them to a colour in the print to keep your look polished.
