The only thing more important than your New Year’s Eve destination is your outfit. We all know finding the perfect ensemble can be a gruelling process; this fashion decision is going to see out the old year and usher in the new so it’s doubly important.

Whether you’re dropping the base at a house party, reclining by the pool or heading to one of Brisbane’s ultimate New Year’s Eve parties, we have your look covered.

So ditch the outfit-induced stress and welcome 2016 with a bang... and glitter if you're so inclined.

COCKTAIL BAR

If you’re heading for one of the fanciest bars in town to sip cocktails and watch the fireworks, metallic hues and bold jewels will help you stand out in the crowd. A foil skirt paired with a simple black cami and chunky drop earrings by Chelsea De Luca is an easy way to incorporate these elements. Finish your look with the season’s hottest shoe – the lace-up heel – and Victoria’s Secret-esque curls.

HOUSE PARTY

If red Solo cups and hanging out in hallways is more your thing, look for an outfit that is equal parts dressy and low-maintenance. Enter: the jumpsuit. Flattering on all body types, this glorious all-in-one alternative will look great with sleek stilettos or ballet flats if you’re intending to dance the night away. Pair with tonal accessories for a polished finish.

POOL PARTY

Who DOESN’T love a pool party? There’s no better way to spend a steamy New Year’s Eve than by the pool. Channel that poolside Miami glamour with a tropical print playsuit and team with a straw wedge for a summery alternative to a heel. Add some bling earrings and pink lipstick and you’re good to go!
