If there was ever a day where you need to show out

Whether your plan is to ring the new year in at an intimate dinner party, rooftop shindig or hitting a vosho on the dancefloor, this is not the moment to compromise on style. Yes, you may have set your intentions for 2018 when the moon was at 26 degrees Scorpio in November; your chakras are aligned, but you still need to show the universe you’re in full formation to receive that glow up… and you need to do that in a LEWK.
Power in pink
Fuschia fur on blushed tones, think full monochromatic impact in pink. Highlighted as one of SS18’s hues a la mode, millennial pink is clearly going to be unshaken for some time to come. Take reference from the power suit in Gucci’s Milan Fashion Week showcase and pull out all the stops in pink. Sidenote: A fur purse is a fantastic trans-seasonal piece. Few fabrications lend themselves to glamour as well as fur does, so wear it as a clutch, when it’s too hot to drape it around your body - and double up when the weather permits.
Spark the magic
Simple, yet decidedly well put together, this mini and metallic look hits most of this season’s trend marks too. Gingham, ruffles, plisse, metallics and socks and sandals - it’s a solid combination that doesn’t look like overkill. And the block heel will give you extra support to dance all night.
An understated look with statement shoes is a party time look that will never let you down. Dial it all the way up in this shiny fuschia pair from Public Desire and keep the rest of the look neutral to intensify their impact.
Get on a vibrant frequency
Snatched for the gods and radiant from the moment you step in, leave no head unturned in this orange body con dress.
Go with a floral flow
See-through, but not overtly naked, this floral bodysuit oozes sexy sophistication. Paired with wide-leg pants and clashed with gingham boots, it packs a touch of class and a whole lot of attitude.
Well, because sometimes new year’s eve can be romantic or a champagne-fueled penthouse soiree. This is a flawless summer dress to make a lasting statement in at a more intimate affair.
Wear the pants
It’s the summer of the statement trousers and the wide the leg, the better. The best way to play with proportions, wear loose-fitting cuts with a cinched waist or a cropped top for a stunning polished look.
Be perfectly grounded
Heels are not the only statement shoes, the perfect pair of flats can do just as much with less effort. Wear these satin slides with cropped jeans and a bodysuit for a considered homebody look - if you happen to be entertaining friends at home this NYE.
Make all that glitters gold
The ultimate club-ready look, this one is for when you need to bring all the glitz to dancefloor. Pair ripped bedazzled jeans with a classic white shirt and a corset, give it an unexpected twist with white court shoes and finish it off with touches that twinkle.
Go back to basics
It has been tried and tested, the black jumpsuit is a classic throw-on-and-go statement piece that requires very little else. Layer it with a shimmery top and wear with statement heels for a look that’s ready to welcome the new you.
