Choosing the color

Since the color of the symbol of the year 2018 is yellow, the color palette of the outfit should be yellow, brown, sandy, golden, ecru, and all tones of yellow and brown. New Year’s Eve parties tend to be bright and colorful. This doesn’t have to be limited to the decorations, it’s also your time to shine. You can be the queen of the party by choosing a shiny sparkling dress!

If you don’t feel like wearing something colorful and shiny, there is always a way out – classical black. This is a rescue for every occasion. And you always can add some bright element to the dress. It could be a golden (or yellow) necklace, a belt, or a fun bow or a classic brooch. Accessories always add a little spice to the outfit.

Top materials

Women can have a harder time choosing an outfit because we are so overloaded with fashion choices.  But nothing is impossible. Either you choose a dress, overall, suit, or pants or skirt with a top, it doesn’t really matter, most important is to feel comfy and beautiful in the outfit that you have chosen. The material also matters here. If you decide to sport a pantsuit, it could be made of a light silk. Such materials as chiffon, gabardine, velvet, or lace would look marvelous on you. Pair your outfit with a trendy fabric. The most popular now are light textiles, such as silk, satin, lurex yarn fabric, natural ornamental textiles, laces, asymmetrical ornament fabric.

Pick the best outfit

Going for a classic evening dress is definitely a good choice for New Year’s 2018. It could be a long dress in Greek style, asymmetrical dress, simple silhouette dress with such accent like: deep cleavage, big bow, wide belt, high slit, colorful print.

You also can’t go wrong with a cocktail dress, but we’re leaning more towards long and chic this year. Of course the venue also has a say in this decision.  Appropriateness is one of the rules by choosing the outfit. For official events the outfit should be chic but also a bit reserved.

Choose one detail to stand out. Don’t overwhelm the look. Pick one thing to highlight. It could be completely closed décolleté dress but with low back. Simple designed dress could be completed with an extravagant clutch, massive jewels, or provoking make up. If you wear something garish, soften this outfit with neutral accessories and make up. It is better to keep balance in your look and not overdoing it. Balance is always key.

Accessories matter!

Accessories, by all means, are the essential part of a festive outfit. Brooches and hair accessories are trends for the New Year eve 2018. Also you can try a coquettish hat or a fun flower hair band, especially if you’re going for a Greek-influenced dress.  Depending on your outfit, you can try such accessories as leather bracelets, necklaces of various design – either decorated with beads, or gems, ethnic jewelry, extraordinary earrings, or something else that you would think would suit for your outfit.

Men’s outfit variations

It’s not only ladies laboring over their outfit decisions for NYE 2018.  Men also tackle the tough question.  Some guys might be turned off because of the color range of the Yellow Dog. Don’t be! You can choose classical colors as black or grey for the suit, and pick up a colorful shirt or tie. One bright accent would be enough to appease the dog. For the skeptical boys out there who don’t adhere to fashion trends,  it’s enough to wear something conservative.

For a New Year’s Party with friends or family it would be enough to have a typical winter style outfit, for example, a warm jumper with winter print. If it is a party with coworkers at work or in a bar, you could sport  a range of casual outfits like velvet blazer or suit in Yellow Dog’s color range – yellow, brown, and if you dare, golden, or beige blazer if you prefer modest style.

As usually, don’t forget about accessories, they can work wonders. Choose a tie in Christmas tree print, pocket square with snowmen on it, cufflinks or watches with winter deco. Those small details will complete your perfectly seasoned outfit.
