How to Choose Outfits for the New Year's Eve Party
Reading about which dresses are in vogue may not be the best way to make a choice from the selection of cute evening dresses that you have in front of you. It is possible that those formal party dresses were custom-made for a size zero model sashaying and strutting down the ramp. For mere mortals like us to wear a dress that flatters our every curve, it is important to keep a few key things in mind. In this section, we give you tips that will help you decide on the perfect outfit for the New Year's eve gathering that you are attending.
  • First and foremost, it is important that you understand what the dress code for the party is. You cannot attend a casual get together with a few friends, dressed up in a Gucci outfit resembling the one your favorite star wore to the Academy Awards. Call up the host of the party and confirm what the dress code is before going all out and spending a bomb on your dress for the party.
  • Another important thing to pay attention to is the color of the dress. The best color tones to wear in winters are jewel tones. These are also the latest fashion trend. Opt for colors like purple, red, indigo, teal, etc. An all time favorite color that works on most people is black but the little black dress is very common, and it may work to your advantage to wear other colors, especially darker hues.
  • Next comes the cut of the cocktail dress that you are choosing. While it is tempting to choose a dress which may be the latest trend, it may be smarter to choose a dress that has a simple cut, and flatters your body type. A fitting dress made of silk with an interesting neckline and sleeves may be a great option for the New Year's eve party. Choose patterns that you may not have thought of before. Remember to choose a dress in which you are comfortable. While skin show may be the order of the day, if you are uncomfortable in what you are wearing, it will show.
  • If like yours truly, you hate 'bling' on a general principle, then New Year's would probably be the time to give shimmer and sparkle a bit of a concession. If you are attending a glamorous shindig, then garments with sequins and metallic fashion accessories may be a must. Try and minimize the effect though. You obviously do not want to look like a walking Christmas tree.
  • Accessorizing well is very important. Along with paying attention to different outfits ideas for the party, it is also important that you match your jewelry and accessories. Do not go overboard with jewelry. If you are opting for chandelier earrings, skip the necklace. Minimalistic accessorizing is the best way to look your best.
  • While choosing your outfit, most of us forget about choosing the perfect pair of shoes and the best bag to take along. While you can always buy a pair of heels in a matching color, if you are game for it, try shoes in a contrasting color. They make for a great style statement and are a huge trend in the fashion world right now. Also carry along a clutch to the party, instead of a regular tote bag.
Choosing New Year's eve dresses is not as difficult a task as it is made out to be. Once you know which of the outfits suits you the best, pick out the matching accessories, and you should be good to go. Happy New Year!
