With New Years Eve around the corner, you would definitely start pre planning your wardrobe in advance, which means you should start hitting the stores within the next few days. Since it’s the start of another fabulous year, make an impression that is certainly going to have a knockout effect. Whether it’s a celebration at home, a girl’s night out or an uber chic dance evening, the top agenda would be to look your best.
From metallic blazers thrown over fitted LBD’s to classic flowy gowns, with the right amount of accessories, just ensure you get a sartorial head start with some fashion help from us. Since your New Year’s party invites are going to range from a variety of events, your best pick would be something that could work at any event you choose to attend.
If you have a dinner party invitation, then the White “Draped Goddess Gown” from Raakesh Agarval is going to be a perfect pick for you. This ethereal white gown with beautiful Roman inspired drapes and a classy embellished golden waistband will make you stand out amongst the crowd. Though many people prefer to pick up a black number for the evenings, but this heavenly number is going to make heads turn as soon as you enter. Pair it up with a “Filigree Worked Cuff” by Roopa Vohra and a pair of beige stilettoes.
If you opt for a girls night out, then this silk panelled black number by Satya Suman would be the ideal choice. With excellent patterns, intricate handwork and metallic panels, this would be a perfect blend for drinks and music. The dress has a sequined waist belt with neatly pleated top and a sheer see through back. Pair it with the gold plated flower bangle by Ambar Pariddi Sahai and a clutch with strappy stilettos.
If it’s a cocktail event that you prefer to attend, then you need something that makes an impression, but is subtle enough for not standing out or shining like a disco ball. The orange batwing sleeve dress by Satya Suman will give you the right edge for a cocktail event. This jersey fabric dress with a combination of embellished neckline with a gold sequined back is a perfect choice. With a gold and orange combination, it flatters your figure making you feel more confident and beautiful. Pair it with the Acrylic motif box clutch by Pinky Saraf and a pair of gold stilettoes.
Another option in the same color tone would be the gorgeous tube applique dress by Siddartha Tytler. With an impeccable poise and charm, this ensemble can undeniably outline your personality. With the kaleidoscopic effect and mix of bright colors, a bit of intensity brought on by the Golden Endurance collar necklace by Sannam Chopra would be perfection personified.
Still don’t know what to wear (do we ever?!)? DON’T PANIC!
Follow a few style tricks and you’d be absolutely fine. For starters, your wardrobe should always have at least one LBD, which is a real lifesaver. Pair a contrasting colour with the black in shades of blue, grey or even white or ivory will work wonders. Preparing for the chill? match your LBD with a solid structured short jacket with rolled up sleeves. Accessorise generously with statement pieces like a statement clutch or a statement necklace. In the end, remember that the objective is to have fun – looking absolutely stunning certainly helps ! :)
Happy Holidays from everyone at Strand of Silk !
