New Years Eve Outfit Ideas

Wether you're going to a huge party, a little get together or just staying in with friends and family, New Years Eve is a night where you make an effort with your outfit! Here's some ideas of what I might be wearing on New Years Eve...

Here's what I'm sure a lot of people will be going for this year, the LBD. It's perfect for parties or clubbing or any other formal events; And of course the peplum dress is also a HUGE trend at the moment. This one's slightly different to your average peplum dress because of the cut outs just above the peplum. This is from Renee London but was also availabile in Topshop at the time of the purchase.
I always pair my LBD's with Black Stilletos for a classy touch! These shoes are from St Johns market in Liverpool.
If you don't like heels, black wedges also look fab with LBD's. These are from MrShoes.
This dress would be used for a more casual night. You could dress this up or down with obviously a pair of heels or a pair of flats. But this dress would maybe be nice for a family party. This is from Topshop.

I would probably pair this dress with a blazer like jacket to dress it down a little bit. I loev this one because of the tweed detailing. This is from River Island.
If you wanted to keep an elemnt of formallity, a leather jacket would look edgey yet classy. This particular leather jacket is from Topshop but many shops stock leather jackets.

I would pair this look with wedges to keep it casual and comfy.
Maxi Skirts are such a good piece for all year round. They're especially good if you don't want to be showing too much flesh off and could be paired with various tops. Here I've paired it with a Bralet just to dress it up a little bit but this really could be paired with anything.
When wearing a maxi, I am more than likely to pair it with a leather jacket as I love the edgyness it gives the outfiit. It could be paired with lots of different jackets though.
Jacket- Topshop

I like big heels with maxi's to make your figure look tall and slim and these black ones are just perfect for this outfit.

Peplum tops are such a huge trend at the moment and really do add something to your outfit. You could pair a peplum top with Disco Pants or some Jeans. Anything really, I've paired this peplum top here with a fitted blazer which adds some class to the outfit.
Top- Zara
Blazer- Zara

You could pair the peplum top with a fur coat which adds some edgyness to your outfit and will also keep you nice and warm!
Fur Coat- Miss Selfridge
You could pair it with a cardigan to keep it casual and pretty. I especially love this style of cardigan and the tweed and leather detailling.
Cardigan- Miss Selfridge
I would definitely pair all these outfits with these gorgeous nude heels because pairing trousers with nude heels is just a must for me. These shoes in particular are from Zara.
This outfit again, could be dressed up or down. The dip hem skirt was very on trend this summer but I  am still a big fan of these skirts so when I'm going out,  I love wearing them because it's far too cold to wear them for everyday events. If you were to wear a jacket with this, I would pair it with a denim or leather jacket.
Top- Topshop
Skirt- Topshop

Once again, the black heels would look fab with this outfit.

Or the wedges, this outfit is really versatile and could be worn with many different shoes.
Fitted trousers are always a good last minute outfit! They look classy and also can be made to look very formal.  I love the detail on these trousers especially and have been getting a lot of wear out of them this winter. You could pair trousers with really anything, maybe a blouse or peplum top? Crop tops always look good wth high waisted trousers aswell.
Again, I'd pair a nude pair of heels with this outfit because as I said I always pair nude heels with trousers.

I hope you've all enjoyed this post and it gave you some ideas! Remember this is only my style and what I like you can take these ideas away and change them in whatever way you'd like. If you're not comfortable with wearing heels, I think most of these looks could be paired with flats instead. Hope you all had a lovely Christmas and have a lovely new year and 2013!

NOTD: Christmas nails!

Hey everyone,

I got my nails done the other day and chose a sparkly red colour which I love; Very Christmassy, I know. I got Shellac on them because I always chip my nails and Shellac stays on for a while and looks really shiny and polished. What are all your Christmas nails like or your favourite Christmas nail trends?

Gold glittery eyes

Hey everyone,

Yesterday was one of my close friends birthdays and we all had our make up done. I chose to get gold glittery eyes as it's christmasy and compliments my blonde hair. They used MAC products and put lashes on me. I really loved this look and would love to try and re-create it myself maybe using my Urban Decay naked pallet and some glitter.
