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!

Pool Party

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!

White Party
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.

House Party
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.

Dinner Party
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.
