What To Wear On New Year’s Eve

what to wear on new year's eve

I used to use New Year’s Eve as an excuse to dress up like there were no tomorrow but as I’ve grown older, the bodycon + platforms combo doesn’t quite cut it. Here’s my thinking; what’s your plan? Dinner party? Cocktail class? Fireworks display? If you answered yes to any of the above, you’re probably looking for something a little more sophisticated, right? Consider your search complete.

I won’t lie, it took me just as long to put together the perfect grown-up-but-still-dressed-up New Year’s Eve look as it does those when I’m going all out, but I think I’ve finally nailed it.

The pièce de résistance goes to Zara Studio’s leather dress. At £149 it’s not the cheapest, but considering everyone asks where it’s from when I wear it and both Olivia Palermo and Mollie King have their own, I’d say it’s worth it. It’s a little too risqué without a base layer for an ‘Adult New Year’s Eve’, so I teamed mine with a thin white turtleneck (also a very effective thermal, but we’ll keep that one to ourselves).

And shoes? In the words of Marilyn Monroe, ‘give a girl the right pair of shoes and she can conquer the world’. Case in point: River Island’s sling backs. Anyone who is anyone owns a pair of Chanel’s originals, and these doppelgängers are the best I’ve seen so far. The block heel, the suede, the sling backs… If that doesn’t say sophisticated I don’t know what does.

    La enfermedad sobrevenida durante el período de disfrute de las vacaciones no las interrumpe;
    por lo tanto, los días a lo largo de los que se padezca
    la enfermedad no podrán gozarse en instante distinto.
