Party all night long or dinner at home with friends? Escape to the mountains or New Year's Eve in the heat? Here are our suggestions for toasting the new year with the right look (and without style slips).

Here we are. The end of the year is approaching and with it comes the usual dilemma: what to wear on New Year's Eve? To address the issue in the best way and avoid finding ourselves staring disconsolately at the wardrobe at the last minute, the secret is to plan ahead. And keep in mind the rule - always valid - of " less is more ".

This doesn't mean having to give up glitter and sequins or an important dress, perhaps with particularly bright tones, but simply focusing on a few calibrated elements. All you need is a pair of special trousers, a shoe with a refined design or some statement earrings to get the right look.

But where to start? If you are looking for inspiration, here are some interesting ideas, to adapt to your personal style and - obviously - to the mood of the evening.

Are you planning a mountain escape ? Go for something cozy , like a cashmere sweater or a chunky knit dress. Are you a tireless party girl ? Green light then for sparkling garments and accessories . If, however, you have decided to wait until midnight at home with your closest friends , the key word is comfort, but without sacrificing style.

And again: is a super elegant evening awaiting you? Yes to long dresses in satin, velvet or silk. Will you fly to some exotic destination to toast the heat ? The dress code must be glam but not take up too much space in the suitcase.

We have developed 5 different outfits for as many occasions . Read our advice and be inspired. Let the countdown begin!

New Year's Eve bling bling : how to dress for a glittering party

The watchword for party girls ? Shine ! And what better way to do it than by wearing cascades of glitter , sequins or rhinestones ? We opted for palazzo trousers with sparkling reflections and a pair of silver-toned pumps , to be balanced with a more rigorous and sober "top". A black blazer , for example, always a cool and infallible solution.

New Year's Eve at high altitude: how to dress for a party in the mountains

You can spend New Year's Eve at high altitude without giving up style. The secret is to choose clothes that keep us warm but are also super chic. Like a maxi cashmere sweater and a pair of leather or eco-leather leggings, to be combined with a nice pair of snow boots or trekking boots, perfect for after dinner in the snow while waiting for the midnight fireworks.

New Year's Eve in the heat: how to dress to ring in the new year by the sea

If you have decided to celebrate away from home, flying to some exotic destination, focus on a minimal and feminine look, made up of small pieces that don't take up too much space in your suitcase. Any examples? An ankle -length slip dress , to be embellished with a pair of maxi earrings. On your feet, a pair of thin-strapped sandals , which you can take off on the fly to dance on the sand until dawn.

New Year's Eve at home: how to dress for an evening with friends

Celebrating New Year's Eve with friends, chatting and relaxing, is always an excellent idea. But what to wear when the location is your living room? Our suggestion is to resist the temptation to wear the usual faded jeans and choose something equally comfortable but a little more refined, such as a soft knitted dress in festive shades to wear with moccasins and cashmere socks. To brighten up the whole thing, add a precious detail, such as a clip or hairpins with crystals .

Elegant New Year's Eve: how to dress for a grand soirée

The dress code for an important evening cannot ignore the long dress . This does not mean that you must necessarily opt for the classic black long dress . Indeed, a little color is exactly what is needed to enter 2023 with the right pace (and style), especially in these complicated times. An idea with a guaranteed WOW effect? A shocking pink dress to wear with rhinestone-covered mules and complete with the cool touch of a padded headband .
