How to Style – New Years Eve

I have always felt that New Years Eve is over-hyped and over-rated. When I was younger there was always so much anticipation surrounding this ‘mythical’ evening. What would we wear? Where would we go? What would we drink? Who might we kiss? No matter how rigorously we planned each and every year our evening of debauchery never lived up to our exceptions. Even when left to chance, we still ended up having had a mediocre evening and a hangover to boot.

As I got older I realised I didn’t need to go out to have what is generally deemed an ‘amazing’ New Years Eve, I could just watch the kiddie 9.00pm fireworks and then stay home, stuff myself with party food, watch the Sydney fireworks on TV and then go to bed, all without feeling any FOMO whatsoever.

And so this year, as you might have guessed from the feature image of this story, I won’t be donning a party dress and going to a New Years Eve party, I’ll be staying at home, wearing one of the outfits below, eating party food and going to bed at a reasonable hour. And that’s totally okay.


Dressing Gown Luxe

The Look: Who said wearing nothing but your dressing gown can’t be chic. I wouldn’t really wear my sandals inside but swapping out my trusty dressing gown for a Gucci belt adds just the right amount of party to this comfortable ensemble.


Pajama Party

The Look: What better way to ring in the new year than in your pajamas?! When you already have your jammies on, come midnight, you can transition from the couch to bed with ease.


An ‘Active’ New Year

The Look: We all know that active wear was made for lounging around in making it a perfect candidate for your New Year’s night in. Plus if you want burn off some of that party food and get started in your new years resolution to exercise more early, you are all ready to go.
