I thought I'd share a few different looks in case you were stuck deciding on an outfit for tonight's New Years Eve celebrations. I've tried to cover lots of different occasions and include different sleeve and length options. At the time of posting this, all these styles were available online but I can't guarantee your size will be available, the response to the 50% OFF sale online was huge. Hopefully you find the following sets helpful but as always, if you want a personal styling experience you can email Hayley and I anytime... enjoy!
What would a great party be without someone sporting a LBD. The one's I've shown are all strapless but there are so many bolero and cover up options to choose from in store or online. My favourite way to dress up a LBD is to use big, bright and bold accessories, the more colour the better. If you prefer to tone it down, just stick to a metallic shade like silver or gold or even all black.
I love colour. It took a long time for me to break out of my habit of only wearing black "because it's slimming". If you wear something that fits well, compliments your skin tone and ultimately makes you feel great when you wear it, then that's what you should wear. Ruffles are one of my favourite things lately, they're just so flattering and feminine. These outfits would be great dressed up for cocktails or dressed down for a casual BBQ, definitely items that would get a good work out in your wardrobe.
Those who know me know I love prints. They're attractive to the eye, disguise little lumps and make a statement... wallflowers need not apply. Prints come in and out of fashion but if you keep the colours neutral they'll last more many more seasons to come. These pieces would be great worn out to dinner, to the beer garden or outside by the water. Keep accessories to a minimum and stick to one colour to avoid the outfit becoming to busy, personally I love wooden accessories.
LBD dress too over the top for your celebration? Not a fan of bold colours or loud prints? Then maybe you're looking for something more like this. Light fabric tops on soft pastel colours just perfect for the 40C weather we'll be expecting. You could wear them with shorts or capri's, don't feel like you have to peel on a pair of jeans, if you're comfortable, you'll be confident. Don't forget to accessorize and keep the pieces small and dainty with just a hint of bling.
Finally, for those that like to add a bit of funk to their look. Dark tones and textures show off your moody side and instantly scream "I've got attitude"... take the new year head on and make it yours! Focus on textures like leather/lace/satin/suede/velvet when pulling your outfit together and keep the accessories metallic or black. Perfect for the club, bar or anythere near music and spotlights.

Be fearless ladies and take center stage in 2011
