2021 was a tough year. Doing a pub quiz on Zoom and sipping a pre-mixed cocktail out of a can while wearing joggers is how many of us began the famous countdown. That's why this year, we're going all out, even if leaving the house isn't on the cards. You don't necessary need to wear full Met Gala looks to the pub, but there is still joy to be found in the simple act of getting dressed for this big time of the year. Swap your sweats for something more fun by slipping into one of our eye-catching outfits – think feathers, faux fur trims, sequins and plethora of alluring lace and mesh-paneled designs.
However you're celebrating, our guide will help you to put together a New Year's Eve outfit with a serious wow-effect and toast 2021 goodbye.
Not everyone is a fan of sequins and eye-popping decorations and we don't blame you – sparkles for party aren't a radically new idea. If also associate with the more minimalist fashion crowd, reach for the Talla Jersey Mini Dress as your outfit of choice. Its bodycon silhouette effortlessly highlights the female form while revealing hints of skin via the off-the-shoulder neckline and mesh fluted sleeves sprinkled with polka dots. Simply add heels, your favourite clutch and welcome 2022 in true style.

What we love the most about our Taina Pleated Metallic Trousers and Top set is the fact that it can transcend seasons and styles – simply put; it's not only for the festive period. The free-flowing metallic pair is awash with a striking golden hue which makes it the perfect pairing to contrasting tops, but also its matching partner. This is simply the best New Year's Eve outfit for spontaneous adventures from the sofa to see the city's fireworks (and for playing games like Twister).

Let it swing
Spending New Year's Eve somewhere far and hot? Heading to a club where there's no need for bulky layers? Then the Estari Ombre Swing Sequin Dress is patiently waiting for you. This swinging silhouette has a sleeveless design and mini length, perfect for spinning around on the dance floor all night long. Wear it with sandals when stargazing at the beach and knee-high boots if toasting the year goodbye in a chic city apartment.

For the love of sequins
Sequins and cut-outs are destined for success, especially when it comes to twirling under the stars (and disco balls) until early morning hours. Match the mood of your next special occasion by slipping into the Estari Sequin Cut-Out Mini Dress. Thanks to its warm hues and classic details – think short sleeves, round neckline and comfortable silhouette – it's set to turn heads as you step confidently into the new year.
