What to wear to the 1920s NYE party everyone’s having this year
It’s the only way to bring in 2020
NYE is a time to let your hair down and shake off the stress of having to see all your relatives over Christmas. So, if you’re not invited to at least one 1920s NYE party, then you need to host one. Think of the regret if you don’t – it’s going to be at least another 40 years until there’s another decent decade to theme your NYE around. By that time, you’re going to be old, miserable and with a liver that can’t handle nearly as much celebratory bubbles.
So, now you know your NYE party’s theme, the key question is – what are you going to wear??! Frankly, as long as it’s got tassels or sequins on it, for a 1920s NYE party, you’re good to go. Here’s some 1920s NYE party inspo to get you started (just remember, student discounts exist for a reason):
Guys, you are guaranteed to get heads turning in this, there’s nothing sexier than a well-dressed man. Seriously, if you don’t buy this Black Sequin Suit Blazer, I will (can you imagine this with a cute bralette underneath – yes please).
Not everyone wants to fork out money on something there’ll only wear once, which is why this sequin mini dress is ideal. Dress it up with some heels for your 1920s NYE party, or down with a denim jacket and some converse to head to the club. Lush.
C’mon this is a staple. Plus, it will get some serious usage at all the society balls and Christmas-dos you’ll end up going to throughout uni.
A 1920s NYE party is all about channelling your inner flapper girl. But, that doesn’t mean you can’t mix things up a bit. This co-ord gives the classics a modern twist that’s guaranteed to liven up the party (just think how this will move when you’re shaking your hips!!!).
You can tell a lot about someone from their kicks. So, don’t do yourself a disservice this NYE – no one wants to see those club-worn sticky trainers. Why not invest in these Black Velvet Loafers instead?
So, you can’t afford a whole new look for the 1920s NYE party – who cares? That’s what accessories are for. Glam up your favourite party dress with these Waterfall Drop Diamante Earrings now.
NYE is all about the bling and fireworks at midnight. So, why not bring the sparkles early, and dazzle in this sexy (yet chic) Star Sequin Mesh Top this NYE.
Give your outfit a nod to the 1920s with some Striped Braces. Want to go a bit further? Add in a Movember moustache to channel your inner 20s gangster.
Hair slides have been the trend of the season, and it looks like they’re here to stay. Slick your hair back, add a sparkly slide and you’ll be ready to dance the night away. Plus, there’ll be no stray hairs to ruin that midnight kiss either.
The fringe on the stereotypical flapper girl dress was all about accentuating every movement. But, if tassels aren’t your vibe, this sequin playsuit will do the job just as well – maybe, even better?
Who said only the guys get to indulge their inner mobster fantasy – girl boss’ can rock chic tailoring too. Add some heels (maybe even the ones below) to look strong and sexy as you arrive fashionably late for your 1920s NYE party.
Diamonds are a girl’s best friend. Plus, a little extra height will make sure you can see all the fireworks when the clock strikes midnight.
