It’s time to dress up to stay in and really celebrate the year that was. 2020 has been full of trials nobody saw coming! What I’m wearing to celebrate the end of it at home this year. Three dresses for the perfect New Year’s Eve inspiration.

THE SEQUIN DRESS

Go all in and really shine with a sequin dress this New Year’s Eve. A party night classic, I am always in a good mood in a bit of sequins! It reminds me of the 80’s in only the best kind of way. If you are staying in and dressing up at home, you can kick off your party shoes once the photos have been taken too. Dance around, sparkle and enjoy the last night of a rough year. I will definitely be doing a little of this! Good riddance 2020.

2021 is the Year of the Metal Ox and the lucky colours are gold, silver, white, green, metallic grey & aqua blue. So, I’m thinking these are the lucky colours to wear heading into 2021.

HAIR AND MAKEUP FOR NYE

To ring in 2021, I’ve decided to go for my classic signature waves, this time polished with shine and brushed out nice and soft. Faye from Her on Oxford styled my waves for me pictured here after doing a Bespoke Gloss. What is that?
It is a glossing service using multiple tones to create heaps of shine and dimension. This is usually done in between lightening services to keep the hair healthy and avoids over lightening. This is recommended every 2 months. It keeps every ounce of shine to make it look super luminous. I am loving that shine so much!

For makeup I’ve gone with luminous skin, adding highlight to the right spots with a subtle smokey eye look. To finish off I’ve used a Bobbi Brown Crushed Liquid Lip colour that is a few shades darker than my natural lip colour. It’s also kind of a browny-plum shade without being too dramatic. For a metallic or sequin dress like the one above, I wanted a lip that carries through the extra drama. If I go with a simple white dress (see below) I opt for a nude lip to keep it clean and simple.

THE LITTLE WHITE DRESS

Little white dresses are my favourite versatile dresses for any occasion. Dress them with matching white accessories, opt for metallic touches, black or add a splash of colour. Personally, I go back to gold and white together, layering my jewellery. Next on my wish list? This silk one from Revolve.

THE MAXI DRESS

Once upon a time, I swore I’d never wear maxi dresses yet here we are. Particularly of late, I’ve ordered a lot of new ones! This Realisation Par dress had caught my eye for the print initially but I thought I’d mix it up and try for a maxi. They can be elevated, chic, and perfect for a party too. Pair with a strappy heel for the perfect elegant New Year’s Eve outfit! I found a super cute slip one on Revolve.

Before I sign off (just in case I don’t find the time to share more posts this year), I hope you have a wonderful New year. I’ve actually had a bunch of posts planned to share with you but being a busy time of the year, I didn’t get to them yet. If you saw on Instagram, I managed to fly home to spend Christmas and New Year with my family. It’s been so nice and I almost can’t believe I am here. After missing them for over a year, it’s nice to be home.

Wherever you are in the world, Happy New Year!
