New Year’s Eve is just round the corner bringing in the atmosphere of festivities. Be it India or abroad, the zeal is equal, to ring in the new year with near and dear ones, all in hope of better celebratory times. The heady fragrance of Cinnamon, vanilla, and rum infused dry fruits waft across the bakeries. The Christmas trees and mandatory Star lights light up the houses. While hosting Christmas & New Year parties was too western a concept earlier, it seems global influence is strong on festivity-lover Indians. We celebrate each festival with equal aplomb. With each momentous occasion, comes the need to dress up for it.Fashionistas might have already sifted through a number of online stores to check what you should buy. While some might prefer trendy styles and some might want to indulge in the vintage classics. Ciceroni Editorial team brings you the ‘Must-have Styles’ for New Year’s Eve party this season.
1) Disco Diva
The 70’s decadent decade is back with a swing. Sequins in Gold, black and silver are glamorous once again. The disco and the jive come alive with the drool worthy dose of bling. This season, add on some glitter to your wardrobe.
Opt for either a glitter Bomber jacket or one shouldered glitter dress or a sequined mini skirt
2) Luxe Velvet
You either like it or you hate it but you can’t ignore this fabric. It has an element of grandiose and luxe glamour associated with it. Indian designers like Sabyasachi Mukherjee have made velvet mainstream popular with their jewel toned blouse and lehenga in velvets.
For this New year’s Eve, indulge in this luxury fabric. Opt for a wrap dress or a long skirt or a jacket to add velvet to your overall ensemble.
3) Bomber Jacket
While New Year’s Eve is all about dressing chic and glamorous, one can’t forego the fact that the weather is quite chilly. Lay your hands on season’s latest favourite bomber jackets. They are available in sequins, satin and velvet- all three fabrics.
For those who want to opt for a grungy style, choose biker jackets to team with sequins or satin ensemble.
4) Satin slip
This is the season of mix and match. Don a satin slip as an alternative to the sequined dress. Wear it as it is or layer it with turtle neck top or a collared shirt. It is high on trend-o-meter giving a pinafore vibe to the style.
For those who want to layer it otherwise, opt for a maxi shrug or team it with sequined bolero for an ultra glamorous look.
5) Sweater Dress
If easy is your style then go for the casual sweater dress in neutral shades. They are the classic buys; besides looking stylish, they are comfortable and keep the chilly wind at bay. Team the dress with belts, sleeveless jackets and long boots for the ‘New York’ glitz. Neutral tones like champagne, grey, black, navy blue, burgundy, powder pink and blush blue are the colours to hoard on to.
6) Colour me Right
The colours to watch out for this season are Emerald Green, Merlot, and Champagne. The classic Black and white will definitely rule the party wear but the diva-esque Gold and silver will also be omnipresent. One may look for powder blue, blush pink, wine, coffee brown, steel grey and midnight blue shades too to stand out in the crowd of blacks and whites.
