I will look for any excuse to get glammed to the nines. Whether it’s coffee or a dash of Frangelico, any event is fare game for affirming my body with looks that express inner radiance. Contrary to popular belief however, this is a luxury afforded to all individuals. Glamour is where Vogue and Value Village are level as the fountain water of a summerhouse backyard.
Regardless of budget, NYE, however, is the ultimate occasion for glam. Now, whether this means sequins and nice nails or seven Fireballs and hunched wobbling in stilettos, through snow and into a sweaty cab is up to you. Either way, New Years Eve is a night for each individual to do and wear what makes us feel glamorous, kissing “good morning” to the days that lie ahead.
So without further delay, these are the looks that have caught my eye, this season, for NYE:
1) Head to toe in silver & gold.
THE EVERYGIRL, VOGUE
If a look to shine is on your mind, I mean. . these two are practically a given. While many might find a full-piece metallic intimidating, the key to achieving a balanced look in silver or gold is minimal to zero accessories. As shown above, fewer jewels are a graceful approach to sporting any full metallic look.
2) Sweaters and sequins, baby.
GLAMOUR Fashion, THE EVERYGIRL
Elegant and effortlessly (although probably not haha) chic, this look is confident and comfortable, religiously keeping the fun in NYE.
3) Ultra-glammy rompers!
Cuz nothin says “fun” like a onesie. All jokes aside, these sparkly rompers breathe party-time. For a more sophisticated look, however, the full-length leg is the way to go. As modelled above, a naturalistic hair look can help to tame a sassy romper.
4) All black, high neck peek-a-boo.
Uh-huh honey. This look is sexsayyyy. With a high neckline in sombre black, the peek-a-boo look is all about choosing your place to show skin. A cut out or sheer fabric is the perfect way to add a more intimate feel to your ensemble while honing a graceful approach to that NYE glamour. Think Riri or Dita Von Teese.
And last but certainly not least. .
5) All-over black and glitta in ooooneee!
FASHION GONE ROGUE, VOGUE
There can be too much of a good thing. . . so then you just wear all those good things together, naturally. As demonstrated by the above goddesses of music and film, shimmering statement pieces atop a demure, velvet black is where it’s at. Don’t ever be afraid to get a little freaky on NYE or any day. Living, breathing glamour is infinitely more diverse than media portrayals of “glamorous” women.
So let’s let the year ahead be about choosing to express ourselves not how we’re told to, but in a way that lets the insides of our minds shine like diamonds. While fashion articles may find you a show-stopping look, never forget that it’s the freedom on your face and your confidence in what you choose to wear that makes you radiant and glamorous.
Have fun and express yourself, this NYE,
