With party season well and truly coming to an end for another year, it’s time to get your best frocks back out and celebrate the new year. I love having an excuse to dress up and get some pieces out of my wardrobe I may not have worn in a while. Or even the excuse to buy something new for a special occasion. Wether that have been for a Christmas Party, a night out with your best friends when everyone comes home for the festive period, or a night on the town for new year.
I’ve picked out four of my favourite looks I’ve styled across 2016, to give you some inspiration on what to wear for new year. With everything from rocking a playsuit, a lacy number – or even something a little more casual and comfortable that’s still party ready.
You can’t go wrong with a little black something. It doesn’t always have to be the perfect ‘little black dress’ give a playsuit a go with statement accessories and some heels to dance the night away in. I didn’t think that wearing a playsuit would be for me. I’m relatively little myself at just 5’4” so thought for sure they’d look like I was wearing an oversized baby-grow. Try one that’s from the petite range, or even look for three-quarter length legs (even if they’re full size on you!) Accessorise with some bright nails and matching clutch bag and necklace and you’re good to go.

Feeling something a little bit vintage, this is one of my favourite outfits I’ve put together for 2016. I never normally have the confidence to try on something like this outfit, let a lone buy it – but i’m glad I did. Ooze confidence in a faux suede pencil skirt and pair it with a touch of the embroidered trend. I’m styling an embroidered mesh crop top with pretty feminine floral detailing. Both my skirt and blouse are from River Island, with shoes from Primark and clutch bag from Quiz.

Falling in love with the playsuit trend a little further, I tried something a bit shorter this time round. With a lace playsuit it’s perfect for a night out number, with pretty feminine details and floaty sleeves, it’s something you can be comfortable in all night and still feel good. Either pair with heels or flats depending on the situation, and if you’re brave against the cold UK winter weather – you could go without tights too!

If getting totally dressed up isn’t your thing then try something a bit more comfortable. This is something that I wore over Christmas, with the red peplum bodysuit underneath my faux leather trousers; adding a little bit of something special (with that dream ‘nice top and jeans’ combo that never seems to work out the way you planned!) and a statement necklace and some chunky cut out boots and a simple clutch bag.
