New Year’s Eve is just around the corner bringing all the glamorous parties we’re thrilled about and the resolution we all dread. With the preparations just underway, the party outfit should be at the top of your planing list, and, according to accurate feng-shui teachings, it is wise to greet the new year wearing something new. The best bet is a showstopper feminine style that guarantees an unforgettable appearance – such a special night is the best excuse for donning an extravagant dress. Here are our top 30 picks for a dazzling holiday look:
The embellished LBD: a minimal black dress seems too modest for welcoming the new year and that’s exactly what designers had in mind when creating high fashion pieces mixing mystery and glitz. Covered in jet beads, sparkling crystals, fluttery feathers or dangling fringes, embellished LBDs are collectible treasures, the quintessential designs for a contemporary look.
The little red dress: “When in doubt wear red” says couturier Bill Blass and we can agree with him. If you want to look like a movie star, opt for a classic cut in a vibrant red; deluxe fabrics such as silk, embroidered organza, rich lace and brocade add texture interest to the sultry appeal. Choose your make-up and accessories wisely so you don’t outshine your dress.
Lace frock: a precious fabric with a timeless appeal, a quality lace dress delivers the classic elegant look, perfect for a special evening. Modern cuts, metallic texture or jewel colors elevate this fabric to high fashion standards. Wear your lace dress with stiletto heels and a structured clutch for a glamorous take on the classic style.
Sparkling number: a glitzy outfit brings extra glam to any event; be it a subdued crystal embellishment or a dazzling multi colored patterned tunic. If all-over sequins is not party-esque enough, look for feather hem Jazz-Age inspired design that will surely get all the attention. Pair your glittery dress with toned legs and minimalist shoes and purse, and get ready to hit the dance floor!
Romantic gown: a bell shaped brocade dress or an ethereal chiffon gown can make you feel like a fairy princess and luckily, this style usually has an extremely flattering cut. Enhance the retro glamour look of a strapless ball gown with sparkling accessories. While a textured flowy frock (with pleats, embroidery or floral prints) has a bohemian luxe vibe to it. Just throw on your ankle boots and that fuzzy overcoat and you’re good to go.
