New Year's Eve or Holiday Outfits Lookbook (also video)

Hey all! :) This is the new YouTube video I mentioned I was working on, in my previous post. The theme is New Year's Eve (or Holiday) Outfits, and I have 5 outfits to hopefully inspire you today! :) As always, I have a blog post with a video to go along with it.

A lot of us always get really excited for NYE celebrations as it's a great excuse to dress up, especially for those attending parties and watching the fireworks on a night out! I have a mix of different outfits though, from the glam, party situation to more cosy looks spent with a close group of people on a quiet night. And of course if you're not celebrating or you couldn't care less about NYE festivities, you can spend the whole day in your PJs like I have before! And just have the most amazing long slumber and wake up into a brand new year. Haha anyway I hope you guys enjoy this post and my video!

Look #1: Turn heads in Tangerine
Orange dress: c/o Dollygirlfashion (link here)
Metallic belt: c/o Lookbookstore (link here)
Clutch: Choies

Sequins and shimmer aren't the only ways to stand out during the holiday season- a hot little number in a bold colour is just as good! You can wear this outfit clubbing or a house party, hotel, cruise, etc.

I really like all the attention to cut and shape in this dress, making it as unique as it is glamorous. The plunging neckline is a great show-stopper, and the shoulder structure gives the dress a fierce look. I personally love the drapes on the front sides- it's a tight dress but loose where it counts- that bulging belly after New Year's feasting of food and drinks!

Check out Dolly Girl Fashion for more party dresses and other cute clothes. They are an online Australian boutique and offer worldwide shipping, and free shipping over $50 within Australia. If you absolutely cannot wait to pick up an amazing piece from their collection, they actually have physical stores you can walk into around Sydney! Check out the store locations here. I have personally been in a number of them and I always want to buy everything there haha!

I added a metallic belt from Lookbookstore to make it a touch more glamorous! New Year's is a great time to add in chunky metals :)

Look #2: The New Year's BBQ
Striped off-shoulder dress: c/o Showpo (link here)
Cat eye glasses: c/o Oasap (link here)
Blue scalloped clutch: c/o Oasap (link here)
Metallic heels: Missguided

If you're spending the majority of the day in a more casual rather than relaxed environment, a glitzy party dress may not be the first thing on your mind. Black and white stripes and a sexy yet elegant cut makes this dress from Showpo perfect for this situation!

The casual vibe makes this great for spending NYE with close family and friends in the backyard, with a few drinks.

You can pull the dress up or down, depending on if you want a sexy off-shoulder look, or a shorter dress with a boatneck cut at the top! Both looks work! The other great thing about this dress is that it defies the rules of never ever wearing horizontal stripes- this is a flattering dress and gives a slim and sexy silhouette.

I topped off the look with some classic red lips (love to pair them with stripes!) and some feline, cat-eyed sunglasses :)

Showpo are an Australian online fashion boutique with such a wonderful selection of cute, sexy and gorgeous pieces to suit every occasion...I definitely recommend heading over there for some more New Year's inspirations or general party outfits! Everything is so gorgeous, and they offer express shipping within Australia :)

Look #3: Summer Night Out
Tropical birds romper: Sabo Skirt
Neon bag: Missguided
Sunnies: Sabo Skirt
Shoes: ebay

In Australia it's summer so it makes sense to wear something with a fun breezy, beach look! You can wear this relaxed printed romper from Sabo Skirt whilst camped outside to watch the fireworks.

To complement the summery vibe I wore light-rimmed sunnies from Sabo Skirt as well, and a fun neon bag.
And how great is the loose fit! It means you can hide all the gastronomical damage! :)

Besides the loose shape, this look is more practical because of these comfy and light shoes! Strappy and chunky bright white sandals seems to be very on-trend at the moment, and I've bought some cheapass dupes from Ebay. The material is so foamy and lightweight which may make the shoes seem bad quality from up close, but it's not too noticeable and it means these shoes are just really, really comfortable! :D

Look #4: Cosy and Cute
Tights: Glassons
Velvet dress: Taobao
Cropped polka dot jumper: Forever 21

Because there are two different sides of the world celebrating New Year's in polar opposite weather, here is a winter look for those in the Northern Hemisphere! This look is a cosy and cute one, and is great for a house party with close friends and family. Nothing spectacular, just good company and food :)

So I chose something cute and appropriate, with these heart-patterned tights to keep warm, a rich velvet dress, and a snug polka dot jumper on top :)

New Year's isn't so far off from Christmas, so I stuck with the Christmas festive colours and chose a vibrant red for a pop of colour!

Look #5: Warm in Sequins
sequin jacket: Portmans
top: ShopMarketHQ
necklace: Tree of Life
Clutch: Zu

And here is another warmer look for those in winter time! It's actually possible to wear all-out sequins without having to brave the cold in tiny party dresses, with this sequin jacket!

I was going to wear my shiny, liquid leggings but I can't find them anymore :( These plain leggings will do, matched with black pumps to create a streamlined, leggy look. Black skinny leg jeans will work too!

This is the best occasion to combine sequins and statement metals for extra sparkle and shine! :)

I hope you guys enjoyed this post and video! :) Let me know what you think in the comments below on my blog or on my Youtube video. I'd wish everyone a safe and happy new year's, but it's a bit early for that! Christmas hasn't even arrived yet. Hope you guys are all keeping your cool as we roll into the silly festive season!
