Celebrate the midnight hour in style with our effortless guide to evening dressing. Think luxe textures, sharp tailoring and decadent details for him and for her: let the countdown begin!
FOR DATE NIGHT
Whether you’re marvelling at fireworks flying through the sky or sharing a candlelit dinner for two, here are our tips for a look that’s sure to catch your other half’s eye.
HIS: A midnight blue blazer paired with a lighter shirt is the perfect polished combination for champagne and canapés.
HERS: Keep it sultry with a touch of shine - think a velvet blazer layered over a silk tee . Then, continue the statement with striking jewellery. As for your hair, try a loose wave – middle part and finish with a high gloss serum.
FOR THE ROOFTOP PARTY
What better way to end the year than with panoramic views of the city – champagne cocktail in hand, of course – enjoyed from an opulent rooftop bar?
HIS: Smart-casual is your safest bet: pair a shirt and blazer with dark slim-fit jeans and a print scarf for effortless all-night style.
HERS: Metallics are your friend: opt for a gold blouse and oversized coat with metallic flatform sandals. Up the ante with volumized hair, swept to one side and tamed with shine spray: it’s the only way to keep fly-aways at bay.
FOR THE HOUSE PARTY
You’ve shunned the chaos of the club for a more personal gathering, now all you need to do is master the casual cool look.
HIS: Go retro with a standout roll neck and button-down blazer. Team with bold patterned socks and box-fresh trainers.
HERS: Ditch the little black dress and opt for off-beat glam with a red velvet co-ords , a striped tee and gold hoop earrings. Pull half your hair into a top knot, for a look that is stylish but not overdone.
FOR THE BEACH FIESTA
It’s hard to beat the feeling of sand between your toes and the soundtrack of steel drums from sunset to sunrise while you twirl under the stars. If you’ve escaped to the sun for the end of year festivities, we salute you!
HIS: A pair of navy cotton-twill shorts, a white linen shirt and beige waistcoat. The look says you’re carefree and ready to own the dancefloor.
HERS: Keep it simple with a black summer dress, embellished scarf, sandals and a straw hat. Barely there make-up and bedhead waves will help you achieve the bohemian look.
