Why fear when we are here. Here are 10 fash­ion­able at­tires you can choose from this New Year’s Eve.

Ve­gan vel­vet jump­suit

We’ve got a valid jus­ti­fi­ca­tion for each part. Ve­gan be­cause they are eth­i­cal, more durable and just as fash­ion­able as their silk-blend coun­ter­parts; vel­vet be­cause it’s the per­fect com­fort­able fab­ric of the sea­son and celebs all across are flaunt­ing their vel­vets in a va­ri­ety of win­ter ap­parel; and jump­suits be­cause they have made it to the fash­ion list of 2018. Fol­low­ing a more tomboy­ish trend for jump­suits for the next year, if your idea of New Year’s Eve is more laid back than on the dance floor, this one is for you. Go for a lighter colour in­stead of the black or deep blues.

Over-the-knee state­ment boots with your LBD

In love with your new lit­tle black dress but don’t know how to make it look dif­fer­ent? For­get belts, the smartest way to jazz up your look ac­cord­ing to A-list celebs is to sim­ply strut out in over-the-knee state­ment boots. Well-em­bel­lished, glit­ter­ing boots are a sea­son’s favourite. They even work ex­cel­lently to keep the cold out. Phew! For once we don’t have to com­pro­mise on com­fort for the sake of fash­ion.

Gold or sil­ver chain­mail dress

If you are wear­ing one of these, you can be cer­tain of get­ting a sec­ond glance ev­ery time. Since a chain­mail dress is all glitz and glam­our, keep the ac­ces­sories sub­tle. Fig­ure-hug­ging chain­mail dresses are ever­green, al­lur­ing, and if you don’t mind ‘shin­ing bright like a di­a­mond’, it’s per­fect for a night out at the club.

Strappy laven­der long dress

Quite self-ex­plana­tory, isn’t it? If you’re won­der­ing ‘why laven­der and not ma­roon’, it’s be­cause laven­der is the cho­sen colour of 2018. If you were a fan of mil­len­nial pink from 2017 (as­sum­ing you did ac­tu­ally get the shade right), the soft laven­der should be a wel­come change for this year. It’s sub­tle, dreamy and feminine. Pair this oth­er­wise min­i­mal­is­tic strappy dress with a pair of crys­tal ear­rings, high heels, and your best smile.

Lay­ered tas­sels

Feel like twirling around a lit­tle more on New Year’s Eve? The per­fect dress for you is a lay­ered tas­seled dress that will to­tally en­hance your ev­ery move (and make you look ut­terly glam­orous, as well). If you like some de­tail­ing, get one with a lit­tle bead­work or other em­bel­lish­ments around the neck­line.

Chunky shoul­der-graz­ing ear­rings with an off-shoul­der top

Gi­gan­tic ear­rings are set to be a fash­ion must-have for the next year and what bet­ter time to bring out the most flamboyant ver­sion of these ac­ces­sories than New Year’s Eve it­self. Skip the neck­lace for this look and go for a dress or top with state­ment sleeves but one that will leave your shoul­ders bare for your ex­quis­ite ear­rings. If you feel a pair is too heavy to carry, by all means, wear just one and go for some­thing sim­pler in the other ear. Yes, mis­matched ear­rings are on par with the chunky trend.

Se­quined frock

2018 is des­tined to be quite daz­zling with all the in­cli­na­tion to the shim­mer and shine. If you love to fol­low trends, start with a se­quined frock for your New Year’s Eve. Wear a pretty frock if you in­tend on a lot of danc­ing or go for a floor-sweep­ing gown if your event re­quires you to sim­ply sit pretty.

Sparkly sil­ver top and white trousers

Yes, we are be­yond the ‘no whites in win­ters’ cliché. Whites for win­ters are just as sooth­ing as they are for sum­mers. Throw in a lit­tle sparkle and you’ve got your­self a pretty at­tire to show off on New Year’s Eve. The combo is es­pe­cially favourable for those who don’t fancy the idea of short dresses on a win­ter night. Makes per­fect sense.

Fringed jack­ets

For­get bor­ing jack­ets that hide your lovely dress, the new fringed jack­ets are an item to show­case in it­self. It works quite the op­po­site. Wear your reg­u­lar top be­neath and throw on a fancy fringed jacket on top. You can have the fringes just at the back or all along your sleeves for some added oomph. It’ll keep you warm while en­sur­ing that you’re in trend too.

Peek-a-boo polka dot­ted dress

For the bold fash­ion­istas, we bring the best of the two ma­jor fash­ion trends of 2018 - the ever­green polka dots cou­pled with the sheer fab­ric. Polka dots have re­placed stripes ac­cord­ing to the 2018 fore­cast. Layer a ba­sic dress un­der a sheer cover in polka dots for a per­fectly chic look. Wear it long or short ac­cord­ing to your com­fort or oc­ca­sion.
