What better way to ring in the new year with a fashionable ensemble? Spend 2022 intimate with family and friends, or dance the night away on the town, designers have a lot more to offer in festive party fashion for 2023. I’m proposing.
Case in point: from Carolina Herrera’s Wes Gordon and Love Shack Fancy’s resort-inspired sequined floral tube dresses, to classic column gowns embellished with silver sequins, to Lacan Smith’s statement-making cocktail shakers. A series of sparkling ensembles. Valentino’s purple tulle illusion dress featuring a sexy red cut-out sequin minidress and all-over sequin embroidery and feather accented wrists.
Equally, the power of soothing fantasy can be found in playful volumes (see Collina Strada’s bulbous metallic butterfly princess gown), playful prints (like Jean Paul Gaultier) and sensual cutouts (Mons, Raisa). Vanessa, as seen in Magda Butrim) and so on. optimistic shades.
No festive party look is complete without a few bold and dazzling accessories. New Year is the time to sparkle, sparkle and sparkle bigger: the biggest party of the year, including Jennifer Behr’s star and moon tiara, Gismondi 1752’s firework-inspired diamond necklace, and Anna Sui’s sequined zebra-print gloves Boldly directing his night.
For men, New Year’s Eve requires a special celebration and often involves a certain type of dress code.
Nothing beats a classic, especially when it comes to New Year’s Eve.Ami Alexandre Matiusi.
But “black tie” no longer literally means black (a bow tie). Velvet smoking his jacket with an open-neck silk shirt, classic slim-cut black his tuxedo with his Acne Studios pink sequined t-shirt, or an all-black ensemble with Louis Vuitton multicolor. Matching his butterfly and all are good bets to complement his festive evening look.
Many brands also expect that extra flair to make your look stand out from the rest.
A creative black tie gives room for personalization, and men gravitate toward accented details such as imaginative jewelry (Fendi’s silver Cuban chain link necklace). Sequins seen in Valentino’s all-gold look. The bold use of color, lace touches on Alexander his McQueen shirts and trousers offer men an alternative route to ring in the new year while breaking style boundaries.
