Fashion How-To: New Years Eve

Here at BWA we thought we would take the stress out of finding the perfect New Years Eve outfit for you, and put together our style guide on our top five looks for the night.

The LBD:

Lets face it- it’s hard to go wrong with the classic LBD. Try to mix it up with a modern cut, statement accessories and a bold lip.

1. Burberry Ruched Jersey Dress £293.62 at 2. Lovisa Transparent Bangle Pack $19.95 at 3. Jeffrey Campbell Take 2 Wedges $119.95 at 4. Geometric Art Deco Buckle Hard Case $129.00 at 5. Lip Lights Lip Gloss in Red Horizon $35.00 at

Scarlet Woman:

Apparantly science has found that men are more attracted to a lady in red. If you are searching for that kiss at the countdown this is the outfit for you. We love this look with a nude shoe and lip and some chandalier earrings. Steer clear of any heavy necklaces that will clutter the décolletage.

1. Chandelier Earrings $160.00 at 2. Lip Couture in Nude $28.00 at 3. Halston Heritage Draped Silk Wrap Dress £310.64 at 4. Peeptoe Cuff  $79.00 at 5. Pump Classic Patent Platform Shoes $49.95 at

The Perfect Package:

Valentino preaches the art of the perfect bow, try one out to ring in the new year. A classic cream and black or a solid colour is best.  Keep accessories minimal or your look will quickly move from chic to over the top. We suggest a simple black clutch and pump with pink stained lips and cheeks for that look of girlish charm.

1. Peep Toe Studded Hard Case CLutch $119.00 at 2. Cheek and Lip Stain $34.00 at 3. Out With Evie Alice Frock $139.00 at 4. Miss Athenia Black Heels $249.00 at

Grecian Goddess:

We are still loving the elegant drapery inspired by the grecian robes of the past. To keep it modern and not frumpy, choose a bright colour and a modern cut like this Max Azria one shouldered dress in lime. Team with earthy tones like tan and gold.

1. Max Azria Asymmetric silk-georgette dress £327.66 at 2. YSL Lingot Ring £157.45 at 3. Michael Kors Strappy Buckled Sandals £825.53 at 4. Michael Kors Lance Leather Belt £148.94 at 5. Marc Jacobs Garbo Leather Clutch £782.98 at

Floor Length:

Have a swanky soiree to attend on NYE? Try an elegant maxi dress with some sky high shoes to nail the perfect look. We chose a simple yet glam sequined maxi and teamed it with statement jewellery and a smokey eye.

1. Limited Edition Maxi Dress £200.00 at 2. Bangle $16.95 at 3. Necklace $29.95 at 4. Ring $16.95 at 5. Miss Syros pumps $299 at 6. ModelCo Eye Shadow Trio $39.95 at
