New Year’s Eve is always kind a of a let-down… Maybe it’s our high expectations, or maybe it’s the universe laughing at us because we spent all afternoon getting ready only to have an OK night. But did you know it’s a scientific fact (researched by scientists and stuff) that your night can be improved by up to 1000% simply by having a cute outfit?
Reflect on 2016 by thinking about what events you’ve attended, what you wore and what you felt a million bucks in. A trillion bucks, even.
If you’re a smart cookie you’ll have photos on your phone (or even better, your Insta feed). Now’s your chance to buy a similar style for NYE, because everyone to deserves to go out with a bang wearing their favourite look of the year.
Luckily for us, most of the biggest trends we loved in 2016 will carry on through to 2017 too, so you know you’ll be wearing them again and again – think off the shoulder, choker necklines, asymmetrical hemlines, all white everything, metallics, silky slip dresses and statement earrings.
SHOP THE TREND:

On the other hand, if you never, ever dwell in the past when it comes to ex-boyfriends and wardrobe choices, go for a looks that are hitting their peak right now, like luxe pantsuits, floral appliqué, deconstructed shirting and corset chokers.

And if all else fails, you’ve always got your main bitch, the pop lipstick, to fall back on – she’s highly skilled at lifting any outfit, and giving you an excuse to visit the powder room and exit a really boring convo.
Once your outfit is sorted and you’ve spent three hours primping, all that’s left to do is pour yourself a big glass of chilled champagne, reflect on all the best moments of 2016 and laugh about your fashion faux pas from the year that was (knowing that this definitely isn’t one of them).
Happy New Year!
