It’s the one night of the year where you have an excuse to dress up and get creative with your look. So whether you’re gearing up for a night on the town or something more casual, these four looks will solve all your what-to-wear dilemmas this New Year’s Eve.

Pool party

New Year’s Eve pool parties call for tropical prints in laid-back resort shapes. Pair with sky-high wedges and bejewelled accessories. Finish off your look with Victoria’s Secret curls and you’re ready to ring in the New Year!

CBD bar

If you’re spending New Years at a city bar, opt for a fresh white party dress. Don’t be afraid to incorporate metallic elements, whether it’s the whole dress or an accessory. If you can’t go all out on New Year’s Eve, when can you?
