I hope you all had a great Christmas and enjoyed a good old family day, just chilling out and having fun!
I always find these days in-between Christmas day and the New Year really weird, because everyone’s still getting over the food and all the money that was spent over Christmas, so you don’t really tend to do that much or really go anywhere. So, that results in those 4-5 days potentially being the most boring days of your whole entire life. However, I think that in order to beat the Christmas blues, you need to think positively about the new year, and of course plan what you’re going to wear for the big night of NEW Years EVE!
Everyone likes to celebrate and spend new years eve differently. Some people like to go all out and really party out their last night of 2014, and some people like to be a bit more low-key and go for a family affair and play games and even create their own firework displays. However, I think that whatever you like to do on new years eve, you should always make the effort and dress up for the occasion. It only happens once a year and you’ll always remember your fashion disaster, if you have any, for years to come.
When it comes to New Years Eve and Clothing, the one thing that screams out to me has to be ‘SPARKLE’. Sequins, beads, metallic’s, glitter, anything that reflect the lights and makes you feel like a true glitter ball. There’s not many times that you can really get away with any of these things once you are past around 11 and so you might as well fully embrace the one night you really can.
So, to help and inspire you all on your sparkly outfits for new years eve 2014, I have trawled the internet and picked out the best 20 sparkly items that will rock your world this NYE. There’s something for everyone, with playsuits, shorts, tops, dresses, bags and even shoes. So, what are you waiting for, grab a pen and paper and note down your favourite sparkly beauties that you love, ready for this NYE.
If you are really spending NYE in style this year, then I think that the best idea would be to go for something really special and hopefully something that no one else will turn up in, and that has to be this Topshop limited edition feather hem bodycon dress. It’s absolutely gorgeous, with the amazing feathered hem detailing and the seriously embellished frame, that really gives the vibe of The Great Gatsby and the flapping 20’s and 30’s, with a modern twist. It would look great paired some very simple nude tights and a pair of strappy white or silver heels.
If you are feeling something a little bit more low key and paired down, then the best idea would be to go for an item that could be dressed up or dressed down to create a day time or night time, casual or dressy look. This would be an item such as this navy, nautical inspired top from Miss Selfridge. It’s super cute and nautical, with a great dressy vibe that could be played up or down depending on the occasion. However to keep it super casual I would pair it with some black jeans and maybe a pair of black boots or even white converse, and a leather jacket.
