5 Foolproof Outfit Ideas To Ring In The New Year

The countdown to the New Year is on and 2020 is soon to be over.

So, whether you’re celebrating its end by barbequing with the kids, hitting the town with your girlfriends or ever so appropriately honouring the year on your living room couch, Monde is here to provide a final piece of occasion specific, style advice.

Beach Day To Bougie Bar

Whether you’re on the beach, by the beach or simply wanting to use fashion to trick your mind that you’re somewhere along the coast – we have the outfit just for you.

Australian label Zimmerman never ceases to disappoint when it comes to swimwear. But for SS20 they have seriously raised the bar. By releasing swimsuits that complement the prints of clothing co-ords, your new kini is quite literally appropriate for both the beach and bar (give or take a few clothing items). Rock your swimsuit top with a long flowy maxi for an effortless and elevated look. All that’s left to do is to swap your beach tote and thongs for a luxy bag and heels and you’re ready for a fruity cocktail.

On second thought, after the year we’ve all had maybe make it two.

Hitting The Town

Locking down meant hanging up your favourite pair of bar-hopping shoes for a confusingly unknown interim. But ladies this unexpected break is finally over, because we’re allowed to hit the town. And it just happens to be perfectly in time for New Year’s Eve.

So how do we navigate dressing up to go out when we are so accustomed to being safe by staying in? Well, if we can take on any fashion advice from this year, we have learnt that comfy co-ords should be a post covid staple in any woman’s wardrobe. No, we’re not talking tracksuits (not this time anyway) But we are drawing inspiration from our lockdown loungewear. The perfect attire for your 2020 NYE night, is a sharp blazer and short set.

Pair your new fave co ord with a black bodysuit and fine strappy heels and you’re ready to take on 2021 looking and more importantly feeling, like a boss.

Backyard BBQ

New Year’s Eve will look and feel different every year no matter how often we celebrate it. And if in 2020, you’re at a place where a big boozy night isn’t on the cards – well the team here at Monde have you covered.

Barbeques with friends and family will be the reality of reigning in the new year for many women across Australia. So, in the name of being both child and family-friendly, we’ve included clothing that puts the convenience of comfort first.

What’s Monde’s style advice for an understated backyard barbeque? Simply dress up the basics. Accessorise your classic jean and cotton tee combo by adding some sleek sunglasses and a statement bag to match. As a finishing touch, pair this outfit back with your comfiest, most cushiony flats and you’re ready for your lowkey and wholesome NY evening. Give or take the Yeezy slides.

House Party

Depending on where you live in Australia right now, house parties are being held in an array of different sizes. Nevertheless, every house party guest and hostess deserves to feel and look fabulous on NYE – even if you are only pottering around your kitchen and loungeroom. So, what should you wear to look and feel festive in the comfort of your own home? We say, go for a print.

The Freya Ribbed Mini Dress from SIR the label is the perfect option for the woman who wants to remain comfortable without sacrificing their commitment to style. The loud print screams bring in the new year, without being a mess of the usual prodding pokiness of sequins and embroidery. Add some fine pearlescent accessories to compliment the baby blue hues in the fabric and enjoy 2020’s countdown to the final and possibly most highly anticipated event of the year.

Formal Festivities

Finally, if formal functions are more your style, get ready to revel in our favourite fancy picks. The lovers of the formal fashion world have been robbed of the opportunity to dress in their most daringly flamboyant frocks for far too long.

To ensure the fashion transition from sweats to suits is a little less jarring, the team here at Monde have recommended that you go for a gown made out of the soft stuff.

The Serita Dress in Amber from Cult Gaia has perfected the feeling of daywear while looking nothing less than elegant for the evening. The knitted fabrication means you’ll be comfy in your dress (a nice change from the crepes and non-stretch nylons our bodies were once accustomed to) while also maintaining a refined silhouette. Simply accessorise this gown with nude heels and gold statement jewellery and you’ll be making your resurface into the fast-paced world of fashion, a fabulous one.
