Four ways to have a fashionable New Year's Eve

Whatever you think about sky-high cab fares and vomit on the streets, New Year’s Eve needs to be marked, even if just with a toast at midnight. And this New Year’s Eve in particular – it is a chance to bid goodbye and good riddance to 2016. How to do that in style? Follow our handy guide on what to wear wherever you’ll be raising that glass.

Finery’s Myrtle dress, £59.

A dinner party

You know the drill here – you arrive with the kind of raised-the-game look that is demanded of a special occasion and you finish up searching for your left shoe after a carpet disco, lipstick long faded on your mouth, as your Uber idles outside. The best rule of thumb is to be honest with yourself, and go with something that feels both dressed up and comfortable, that has over-the-table appeal (you will be sitting down most of the evening, remember) and is not really susceptible to spills as someone reaches over you for the wine bottle. Something like this Finery backless evening dresses– being wine-coloured already – is perfect. Also, what with food involved in a dinner party, think eyeliner flicks rather than lipstick. It’s just kinder when the host is running late with dinner and you’re stuffing your face with Kettle Chips.

Topshop’s velvet slipdress, £29.

Staying in

Staying in on New Year’s isn’t sad – it’s the height of luxury. Or that’s what you’re telling people, anyway. The way to zhuzh up the same experience you have on every other occasion where you sit on your sofa and watch telly is to dress up. Honestly. The amount of time you feel daft for sitting in your living room in a party dress will be far outweighed by the fact that any FOMO will be significantly reduced, especially with the addition of a regularly filled glass of prosecco. This velvet slip dress in duck-egg blue from Topshop is just the thing. Add heels and turn the heating up a tad. Now sit back, relax and watch the bells ring in 2017.

Fenty x Rihanna by Puma’s maxiskirt, £160.

Going to a club

Congratulations! You’re going out out! Time for a proper look, right? Wrong. Everyone knows the coolest girl in the club is the one that doesn’t look as if she tried. Therefore anything on the athleisure/streetwear spectrum is your friend. And who knows this best? Rihanna. So, her Fenty range is well worth a look here – a long skirt worn with a crop top, a sweatshirt with super-long sleeves, an XXXXL T-shirt, all accessorised (à la Riri, herself) with a glass of wine and trainers. Good for the queue, the dancefloor and – if the buses are full when you emerge at 3am – that long walk home.

Whistles’ Dakota dress, £150.

A house party

Ah, the house party – such a unpredictable one. What’s behind the door? Bright lights, bowls of peanuts and small talk with the neighbours? Or banging tunes, flowing cocktails and ever more pathetic attempts at the mannequin challenge? The way to dress for this is the kind of outfit that covers all bases. Here, the little black dress is your friend – it’s a no-brainer but one you’ll be glad of if it’s more option one, and happy in whatevs if it’s two. Of course, if the colour is standard, there’s no need for the style to be – that would make you as boring as the aforementioned small talk. Head to Whistles for “I’m interesting, honest” takes on LBDs – from the shimmy-fringed flapper ones and crochet velvet shifts. This Dakota sexy prom dresses, with spaghetti straps, is dressed up but won’t scare the horses (it’s also in the sale – bonus). Or if it’s the first scenario, the guy in the corner balancing a glass of chardonnay on his edge of his V-neck jumper.

The Rose Gold Beauty Product Sending the Internet Into a Tizzy + How to Use It

 

ll that glitters is basically beauty gold. Over the past year, the biggest makeup trends have all been about adding a little extra sparkle to that daily routine – i.e. any unicorn-related product. Glitter strobing also became a thing. And anything with a holographic tint sent beauty buffs frantically digging for their credit cards. So it should come as no surprise that the cosmetic product that’s been pinned 54,000 times on Pinterest is a combo of shimmer and another trend the beauty world is going ham for RN: rose gold.

2014 Long Black Tailor Made Evening Prom Dress (LFNAC1326)

The product isn’t new. It’s been a cult favorite for awhile. But because it’s pretty much the perfect combo of everything we’re loving beauty-wise, it’s seen a huge spike in popularity. According to Allure, “Pinterest named rose gold as one of the top winter beauty trends of the year, with searches up 190 percent.”

Okay, yes agreed. But how exactly do you actually use pigment? The beauty of the product (and the reason so many pros are fans) is because you can really use it for whatever you want. Eyeshadow? Check. Highlighter? Check. You can even dust it on top of a dark lip to give it a shimmery hue (like in this example here).

If you’re really digging the stuff, maybe just GO. FOR. IT. and replicate this beauty blogger’s look in which she created an entire face of makeup using only glitter. But just don’t call us when you’re 50 makeup wipes in and still can’t get the stuff to come off completely.

5 fashion trends that will be OUT in 2017

 

Before the sale season hits and you run to the malls near to buy all that is trending, here's a list of trends that will not stay and are bound to be OUT in 2017.

1. Slip dresses

The trend of wearing your sexy and sultry lingerie on the outside was huge in 2016! However, it is time to bid adios to this romantic trend as we don't see designers reintroducing the raw slip red prom dress on the runway. We may be seeing augmented versions of the slip dress.

2. Sliders with socks

For some reason, the outrageous trend of wearing your hosiery socks along with sliders was trending big time in 2016! Nevertheless, luckily it was only a fad and will not be worn anymore.

3. Berkin Stocks

Berkin stocks are bound to be the next crocs, in 2017.

4. Overly distressed denim

Overly distressed and ripped denim became a center and a statement piece of every outfit in 2016. In 2017,however, denims are going to take a new twist and the old will be passe'

5. Corsets worn on the outside

Corsets were a very harsh version of the soft lingerie-dressing look, this trend had such a huge moment this year, but I'm not sure if I see designers continuing this into 2017 after the trend was covered in such a major way in the press. None of the celebrities will be seen sporting this trend for sure.
