You know what they say, right? New year, new me. But before we head into 2022, we are treated to one last big hurrah in the form of New Year’s Eve. New Year's Eve is a night to get together with friends and family, drink some champagne and either celebrate or say good riddance to the year that was. The event is also a chance to get all done up in your best dress-or dress down in your most relaxed get up depending on the occasion.
It’s always nice to have a reason to celebrate, particularly, when it involves new beginnings. And given New Year’s Eve is such a momentous occasion, naturally, you want to look and feel your best for whatever event you are attending. So, unsurprisingly, many of us will flock to the shops and online to find a whole new look just for the night.
As New Year’s is often a super glamorous affair, sparkles are inevitable and therefore it's the perfect occasion to rock some sequins, body glitter and of course, your favourite sparkling jewellery.
With the Boxing Day sales already underway, there is no better time to invest in some new jewellery so that you can sparkle into the New Year no matter what you plan on doing. So, read on as we break down the perfect jewellery pieces that will help step up your New Year’s outfit.
New Year’s Outfit Ideas Overview:
If you’re one of the glamourous few who have been invited to a cocktail-themed party or maybe you’re going out for a beautiful dinner to bring in the new year, you’ll probably need some beautiful accessories to go with it. When it comes to your outfit, you can never go wrong with a little cocktail black dress or even a little sequin number and some stylish stilettos. With your accessories, look no further than opulent diamond jewellery such as a classic pair of diamond hoop earrings, an elegant diamond bracelet or the subtle sparkle of a diamond pendant.
On the contrary, many use New Year’s as an excuse to be a little daring with their look and have a little fun with colour. In this case, gemstone jewellery is a great subtle way to add some colour to your look. Put together an all-neutral outfit and then add a few of your favourite gemstones whether it be your birthstone or simply your favourite colour. You cannot go wrong with an enchanting green emerald pendant, a flirty red pair of ruby earrings, a regal sapphire bracelet or even an ultra-romantic morganite ring.
Cocktail parties are a rare occasion where you get all gussied up, so don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone, especially when it comes to jewellery.
Laidback House Party
While some would prefer their New Year's Eve festivities to involve an a la-carte menu and fancy champagne, others are satisfied with a barbeque and a few cold bevvies in the backyard. And while this occasion generally calls for a casual pair of denim shorts, some sandals and a stylish camisole, that’s not to say you still can’t have a little fun with your look.
For this occasion, there’s nothing quite like silver jewellery. Whether it be a classic pair of silver diamond stud earrings or the more affordable zirconia earrings, a sleek silver chain or even a Summer-friendly anklet, there are many ways to add a little flair to your Summer BBQ look. But, if you are more into gold jewellery, a pair of gold hoop earrings or huggie earrings, a playful gold pendant and a minimalistic gold bangle will certainly help enhance your look as well. You could even add a dash of romance to your look with some feminine rose gold jewellery.
For the lucky few who are set to ring in the new year at a tropical destination, you will need some pieces to step up your resort wear. Think silky kaftans, floaty Summer dresses and of course, fashion-forward sandals. But, what would help step up your resort wear is some stylish new Summer jewellery.
Whether you are dazzling your taste buds on a few local delicacies, getting your adrenaline pumping on some action-packed activity like jet skiing, or meeting new people, holidays are all about new experiences and trying things you normally wouldn’t at home. The same goes for your outfit, especially if you’re living it up in a balmy, tropical location. So, if you’re headed on a beach getaway, step up your new year’s outfit game with a pair of dangling chandelier drop earrings, an elegant pearl necklace and a stylish, matching pearl bracelet.
A Pool Party
The weather for New Year’s here in Australia is pretty warm, naturally making it optimal pool party weather. But, while you do spend much of a pool party in a skimpy pair of bathers, that’s not to say you can’t have a little fun with what you wear on top of your swimwear.
Pool party fashion is about loud prints and bright colours, making it the perfect occasion to turn up in your favourite floral sundress or even a printed maxi dress. As it is likely you will end up in the pool at some point of the night whether it was on your own accord or not, you will likely want simplistic accessories that are easy to remove. When it comes to your earrings, look no further than flower earrings, for your neckline; opt for some minimalistic pendants which you can layer a stack with chains, you could then complete your look with a dainty gold bracelet and even a matching gold anklet.
A Retro-Themed Party
Many people use New Year’s Eve as a way to take a trip back to their favourite decade in the form of a retro-themed party. Whether you are invited to a 70’s disco, a rockin' 80’s party, a grunge 90’s gathering or a poppy early-noughties party, retro-themed parties are bucket-loads of fun. Not only do you get to jam out to your favourite hits from the decade, but you also get to dress up in your favourite get up from the time.
Whether you plan on rocking some flares and your highest platforms for a 70’s party, a pair of acid-wash jeans and neon for the ’80s, a spaghetti-strap dress and platforms for the ’90s or your favourite pair of low-rise jeans and a pointless belt for the noughties, there are plenty of New Year’s outfit ideas for a retro-themed party. When it comes to your accessories, there are plenty of timely jewellery options for each decade. For the seventies, you can’t go wrong with a large pair of classic hoop earrings, a few crystal bangles would look excellent with your fanny pack and leg-warmers and a choker-style necklace would pair seamlessly with your grunge tee and black ankle boots. As for your noughties outfit, look no further than a few chic chains and a pair of drop earrings.
