Ten New Year’s Eve outfits you can buy last-minute

Ten New Year’s Eve outfits you can buy last-minute

If you’re planning on celebrating New Year’s Eve on your couch while munching on leftover turkey sandwiches, stop reading now (we’re a bit jealous). But if you’re like me and you’ve some serious partying plans a-coming yet nothing to wear, stop stressing, because we’re here to help.

I know what you’re thinking – New Year’s Eve is a mere three days away and you haven’t worn anything but fluffy pyjamas since Stephen’s day; but you can absolutely find a fabulous frock super last-minute. If you’re not feeling like baring your legs mid-winter, ditch the dress altogether – a velvet pantsuit is just as fancy and will keep you warm. Feathery going-out tops and chic jumpsuits are another great option. Feeling like a sparkly midi dress or LBD? Just add some glitter tights and statement earrings. More is more on New Year’s Eve.

So if you’ve haven’t planned ahead and ordered something online, I’ve sussed out some top-notch New Year’s Eve outfits that you can find in one of our very own brick-and-mortar stores. Plus, shopping around now might get you a deal too. If it comes down to it, just look in your wardrobe; I’m sure you can put a truly stunning look together in no time.
