It’s that time of year where the champagne flows, party lights shine, and glitz and glamour are the only required dress code. We are a champion for sequins and sparkles throughout all seasons, but on New Year’s Eve sparkles are as classic a staple as the regular Saturday night’s LBD. This year, the spotlight on partywear trends has ballooned, and standing alongside our classic NYE favourites are our 2022 features. And this year, velvet, prints and feathers are taking centre stage.
Taking on a new direction from the oversized tailoring trend, velvet suits and blazers are a NYE must for 2022. A coveted winter fabric, velvet is both seasonal and a luxurious addition to your partywear wardrobe. Easy to style with other festive trend favourites, the velvet blazer has a vintage influence and adds a feminine touch to a classic menswear piece. Not only will velvet keep in the heat on a frosty NYE night, velvet tailoring is a chic option for those who are naturally drawn to more understated, less embellished looks. Our Stella McCartney velvet suit co-ord is a great way to try out this trend.
Prints are deceptively easy to style and always fun to play with. Paired with a simple, minimal piece to balance out a busy outfit, a printed dress, top or trousers can create a show-stopping look without the glitter and sequins. Prints transcend the seasons and resurface in fashion trends every year, investing in a patterned piece in a classic design will claim that coveted space in your wardrobe for years to come. Ulla Johnson is the leading brand in prints, from mini dresses to maxi, blouses and skirts, we have everything you need this New Year’s Eve.
The festive period calls for fun tops and flirty dresses encrusted with rows of twinkling sequins. After all, there is nothing more Christmas and NYE appropriate to celebrate the year gone by than an explosion of sparkle. Surprisingly, we think investing in a fabulous sequined piece is a smart purchase. Although perhaps considered more of a seasonal statement, sequins are a trend that resurface every year without fail. In reimagined designs and varying shapes and cuts, the sequined garment remains a steadfast companion year after year throughout party season. Take a look at our Rixo Daisy Dress, the perfect piece to style with a simple strappy heel.
Feathers, particularly feather trims, are especially popular this season. A feather trim at the bottom of an understated LBD adds a flutter of feminine fun, without overpowering an entire outfit. Paired with an embellished heel or statement bag, feathers add a glamourous, old Hollywood finish to any look. Our Rixo Mya Feather Dress embodies this trend beautifully, perfect for styling with a sparkly heel and your favourite clutch bag.
No outfit is complete without those all-important accessories. For NYE, the only obvious choice are sparkles. A diamante tennis bracelet or round necklace help to give a touch of elegance and natural sense of classic style to a look without being overpowering. A statement earring adorned with crystals is the perfect companion for a festive evening look, particularly when styled with an ‘up-do’ or high neckline top. Last but by absolutely no means least, shoes. Acting as both the dance partner and the date home, your shoes are the ultimate finishing piece to every partywear look. A sparkly heel adds a twinkle to a minimal outfit, and a chic touch of elegant festive flair. Our new jewellery brand LUV AJ showcases a collection of statement pieces perfect for dipping into this trend.
