NYE is one of these occasions when everyone is looking for the best outfit! Indeed, each year I am torn between various outfit ideas, designs, materials and of course colours! It is not only hard to decide what to go for, but it is really time consuming!
In this post, I will share with you my advice on how to select the right NYE dress and also one of my favourite choices for this year.
1. A very important rule which can save you a lot of time when choosing your NYE outfit is to focus only on the clothes you can wear to the venue you are attending. For instance, if you are going to a home party you probably do not need to look for a super formal long dress. Not spending time on dresses not suitable for your NYE plan is a key.
2. Focus on the dresses suitable for your body type – everyone wants to look at its best at NYE!! Indeed, you’ll work the room like nobody’s business when you wear the perfect dress for your figure.
3. Everybody likes a little bit of sparkle, but try not to be brighter than the Christmas tree!
4. Go for the right color and material. Before you go out shopping decide what kind of a look you want to have and that will help you determine a few materials and colors. If you have a clear idea of what you are looking for it will be much easier to discover your perfect NYE dress.
5. The length is crucial. As well as deciding what kind of a look you want, you need to think about the length. Are you going to a gala dinner where you need to wear a long dress, do you want to go for a short & sexy look or you want to walk into the new year with a classy mid-length dress? Believe me having the idea of what is the right length for you eliminates a lot of options even before you start your dress shopping.
One of my favourite NYE picks this year is an over the knee classy black & white dress. The design of the dress is very simple, as it is a straight dress with mid-lenght sleeves. However, the combination of the shiny black material and the neoprene white one makes the simple design of the dress extraordinary.
Indeed, as advised above the fashion fabrics are a super important part of your NYE outfit. They can transform the design of the dress completely, which is why you need to choose them carefully.The dress which I am showcasing in this post is made by Salma Helmy, a couture designer who has really transformed a simple design into a classy masterpiece by picking these incredible fabrics.
What I love about this dress is that it would be perfect for various NYE venues due to its length and design. What I also love about it is the black & white stripes, which makes you look visually taller and slimmer (the two things that pretty much everyone wants to achieve). In addition, it is easy to combine it with various types of hills and handbags. With this outfit you do not need to put a lot of jewellery, a nice bracelet or a pair of earrings would be enough as the black sparklish material brings enough amount of NYE sparkles you need!
What are your fav NYE dresses picks? Are you more inclined to go for something more classy or you are looking for that over the top super party piece?
