How to find a classic New Years Eve dress
New Years Eve is a night of fun, frivolity, and it’s alive with eve of newness as the new year dawns in the middle of one of the best parties of the year. You know you’re going to want to dress to impress, so why put off looking for the dress until December? It’s never too early to start looking for the dress you’re going to ring in the New Year with. But with styles changing so quickly, your dress could be out of style before the ball drops. Here are some tips on how to find a classic NYE dress.
Dress for your destination.
On NYE you could be going to one of a million places, so the most important part of trying to decide what to wear is to establish what you’re doing to bring in the new year. You don’t want to show up to a rave in a ball gown or a beach bonfire in six inch heels. Knowing your destination and what festivities you’ll be engaging in will help you narrow down the search.
Go with something sparkly.
This is really one of the only nights a year where you can wear something covered in glitter or sparkles or even sequins, so go with it! Gold, champagne, and sliver dresses will come alive with any kind of sparkle you add to them. If those colors aren’t your cup of tea than a classic black dress would also work, just make sure to accessorize with something eye catching.
Classy, not trashy.
New Years Eve is a night you want to look your best, but this means class not trash. When you’re trying on your dress take for a test drive; make sure you can sit, bend over, and dance without having a wardrobe malfunction. Great styles to embrace on a night like this are dresses with fitted skirts, hi-low dresses, or dresses with fitted tops and tiered skirts. We love Adrianna Papell’s tiered evening dresses, for endless reasons, but one is for her classic tiered fit that flatters any figure. Imagine dancing the night away in a flowy New Years Eve dress, perfection.
Find a dress that flatters you.
There is nothing worse than find that perfect dress, trying it on and having it look great but feel terrible. Look for a dress that best flatters your natural shape.
If you’re slender, go for a dress that creates the illusion of curves like a wrap dress or a sheath that’ll cling to you in all right places.
If you’re apple shaped, opt for a dress with an empire waistline and a A-line skirt that will flare away from your problem areas.
If you’re busty, make sure you try a dress with full coverage to give you the support you need to dance the night away. If you want to draw attention away from your bust go for a dress with a simple neckline but an interesting skirt to draw the eye down to the hem.
