Is it really New Year’s Eve if you’re not dressed to match the fireworks? Alas, the season of auld lang syne is with us, and with the next round of festive parties just around the corner, we’re putting together three inspirational looks, ranging from “can be seen from outer space” to “down-to-earth” like how a sane person would function, without being a bore though. Time to bid 2018 adieu (or good riddance, depending on how classy you want to pretend to be).

You’re walking in the room with one mission on your mind: to outshine even that darn disco ball. Seriously, any large-scale NYE countdown party could do with a lot more personality — and that’s where you come in, swishing around in a glittery maxi dress that’s bound to bring a light show that no one knew they needed. Flaunting aside, you gotta love the rose gold touches to this outfit, whether it’s a tall pair of metallic platforms or a dainty bracelet. Round off the look with an appropriately extra eye palette (leopard print, no less), and a glitter bag that shines and shifts with every movement you make. Now, do you even need RuPaul to tell you to sashay away?!

If you’re the kind to steer clear of the glittery excess of countdown parties, and head for a bar, lounge, or one helluva house party instead, we feel ya. The only thing sparkling should be the champagne. Loud’s never been your thing, but bold — that you can do. Subtle style calls for a metallic blouse that shimmers as you move, all without competing with any Instagram filter, which you can then pair with checked trousers or something as casual as a denim midi skirt. Black heeled boots for flair, a hint of rose-nude on your lips, and a lovely beaded bag later, you’ll definitely be pleased every time you (subtly) check yourself out in the mirror.

We’ve saved the best for last, because this time you don’t even need to leave your home! Or, you’re just a Grab ride away from your pal’s place for the ultimate year-end bash… we’re talking about pillow fights. All sleepover stereotypes aside, you’d wanna snuggle up and stay cosy, without looking like a snoozefest. Invest in a quality pair of silk PJs, because your sleep’s worth it, and because these days, many a Hollywood celebrity have been turning up to glamorous after-parties donning a pajama top anyway. It’s versatile! And comfy! If not, fluffy’s the way to go, whether it’s a jumper, robe, or the softest sliders you can sink your feet into. Bring on the rom-coms and karaoke!
