HOW TO | Dress For NYE

Another year has come and gone. There were some twists and turns, some ups and downs and another unfulfilled list of resolutions. As the clock counts down the final 10 seconds, the world holds its collective breath as we wait for the cosmos to wipe the proverbial slate clean and begin the Earth’s new solitary rotation around the sun. To be perfectly honest, New Year’s Eve is always hyped up far too much. Regardless, the night is still a perfect opportunity to dress up in your sharpest threads.


Dress for the Occasion:

If you’re struggling to decide what to wear, your first step is to consider your intended destination for the night. Whether you’re going to a black-tie event, house party or something more relaxed, there are certain outfits to suit each setting. If you’re going to a semi-casual house party or gathering, nothing beats a nice shirt with rolled up sleeves and a pair of jeans. Remember, it’s also going to be muggy as hell (as per Australian summer standards), so a short-sleeve shirt is also a wise idea. If you’re going to a dinner party, or a classier event, dress to impress. NYE might have impossibly high expectations, but there’s no harm in making sure you’re turning heads.


Own What You Wear:

You could be dressed in a three-piece Armani suit, or a heavy-duty bin liner with arm and neck holes punched out; the most important element of any outfit is to look confident in it. Be proud of your style and your confidence will ultimately complement your wardrobe.
