The NYE Party Edit
Do you know what you’ll be wearing when the ball drops? Whether you’re hosting an intimate celebration at home or hitting one of the city’s hotspots, this is the occasion to go all out. Ring in the new year with dresses that play up the party atmosphere – sheer panels, a smattering of sequins and molten metallic finishes are essential for marking a special midnight moment. Here, we share our edit of fête-worthy favourites, perfect for toasting 2023’s imminent arrival.
Nothing sets a celebratory mood quite like high shine. Sequins, metallics and even (faux) leather’s luster catch every flicker from moonbeams to a disco ball’s glow. Take your night up a notch with Sabina Musayev’s floor length gown in plissé lamé. It’s got wow factor written all over it from the deep v front to the exposed back.
Alternatively, turn to London-born brand Self Portrait. Known for their dazzling dresses, this sequined midi is no exception. The soft sleeves and ever-so-slightly flared skirt look as though they’ve been sprinkled with stardust.
Shimmer can take on an edgier feel too, as proved by Norma Kamali’s gunmetal number. The asymmetrical hem, exaggerated ruching and body-conscious cut make it a can’t miss style.
The LBD is a tried-and-true evening option. Its reputation transcends decades and changing trends making it a no-fail choice for New Year’s Eve. Norma Kamali’s shirred slip, for example, celebrates simplicity at its finest. A single central detail makes this knee-length dress a total knockout.
Elsewhere, the keyhole cutout on Chiara Boni La Petite Robe’s halter offers a quiet kind of seduction. The open back and slit only serve to enhance the romance.
Diane von Furstenberg, also known as the queen of the wrap dress, excites with onyx options that are sure to dazzle. The clavicle-baring off-the-shoulder top of her slim jersey style is perfectly paired with demure long sleeves.
When wardrobe planning for the midnight hour, necklines are the perfect place to play, sartorially speaking. Norma Kamali’s signature one shoulder silhouette is a timeless way to show off some skin, especially when it comes saturated in a striking cobalt blue.
Gilner Farrar opts instead to give sophisticated strapless necklines a moment in the spotlight. A moody floral and built-in bodice make this dress, and you, stand apart from the crowd.
Finally, for something out of the ordinary, Chiara Boni La Petite Robe’s cross-strap top makes a stunning statement. Teamed with structured trousers or a festive skirt, you're guaranteed to start the new year on a glamorous note.
