Common sense suggests that if you are planning to dance your way into the New Year, then you should opt for jeans or flowy gowns that do not restrict your movement. But the New Year's is hardly another night out for partying — it is the most exclusive event of the year. That certainly calls for more attention to detail in choosing your attire.
If it sounds tacky, you have not been following the latest trends. Winter is not the season for flowers, but it can surely add some zest to the dull and the drab weather, if worn fittingly. The colours of the flowers do not necessarily have to overpower your garb. Infact, you can try out light prints representing lavender or pink rose. Lo and behold! You are definitely meant to turn few heads now.
MINIS AND SHORTS
If you have a godsend figure and can pull off anything anyone throws at you; you are definitely a designer's muse. You can even opt for the experimental section by bold designers.
If that means sequined and flashy dresses flaunting your best assets, then let it be.
Yes! Capes are certainly IN and we have perhaps overplayed with the style but who says we cannot use them a little bit more? You have certainly seen capes on jeans and saris. This New Year's Eve, opt for capes on your semi-formal dresses. The next idea that comes to mind is the question of whether we need to match the cape with whatever we wear underneath or it can be something random and out-of-the-blue!
Well, it depends on your personality actually. If you think you do not mind sneers or even some jealous looks, go for anything that comes to your imagination. But if you want to follow the rules, but still stand out, sequined capes are the best option to follow.
Every fashionista knows the importance of velvet, especially during the winter season. Plus, heavy zardozi work can be sported best on this special fabric. Why not try out a fusion jacket or even a jumpsuit in velvet?
HAUTE AND CLASSY
You think the modest; knee length dresses are best suited for such occasions. Then you are possibly right. Off shouldered, cold shouldered or even embroidered bodice, whatever you opt for. It will look sophisticated, classic and refined when you wear a fully customised and fitted garb.
At the end of it all, we would like to inform our readers that style is what is comfortable to you. You will never look hot or stylish until you feel so within yourself.
By all means, try out a new look this New Year's Eve, but please check whether you can carry it with panache. If you personally think you have nailed it, do not ask for a second opinion.
Happy New Year fashionistas!!
