The Biggest Dress Trends to Know This New Year's Eve

It might seem a bit crazy to start planning an outfit you aren't going to wear for about seven weeks, but with so many things to organise in such a short amount of time (like Christmas presents, fashion resolutions), it pays to be organised. 

New Year's Eve is not only a chance to celebrate the year that's passed, as well as the year ahead, but I like to see it as a way to experiment with style. For the final day of the year, there's no better time to make one final risk—and if that's as minimal as testing out a new dress style, then why not? See how it makes you feel to try something outside your comfort zone.

I normally play it really safe—a white slip dress, a black jumpsuit, or jeans and a tee is what I've opted for in recent memory. This year, I'm going to be 'wild' and go for a more festive fabric. Velvet is my pick, and I'll be keeping the typically-heavy wintery fabric cool by adding just a pair of flat sandals (so chic it hurts).
