Party season seems a little uncertain when more and more people choose to stay at home during what is customarily the busiest time of the year. However, there’s still an air of festivity out there, and if you choose to attend a virtual New Year’s Eve party, you definitely have a good excuse to slip into your best special occasion dress and make a grand digital entrance.
Sure, it’s not quite the same as going to an actual party and showing off your amazing new LBD and those stunning, sparkling heels. But drastic measures are sometimes the only option, and in this case, it’s easy enough to make the best of the situation — and celebrate the holiday just as you normally would. What better way than to get a little dressed up for the occasion? Here are a few options for your upcoming computer-based celebration.
Never mind that sequins are usually only on your go-to list when you’re out with friends or on a date with someone special. New Year’s Eve is a great excuse to break out your sparkling favorites and add a little flash to a party that might otherwise be slightly less spectacular than usual. Yep, you still have the glass of bubbly in hand, and you should definitely feel free to indulge in your snacks of choice. But putting on a sequined women’s dress is a great way to put yourself into the true spirit of the occasion.
The upside is that you don’t have to wear those heels that pinch your toes or cause you to go in search of the nearest chair as soon as you set foot inside. Feel free to wear no shoes at all or slip into your favorite slippers or fluffy socks. No one will know — and it’s such a quirky little twist that you can’t help but smile.
The little black dress is among the most reliable and dependable garments in your closet. When all else fails, you can count on your LBD to see you through just about anything, especially those last-minute events that somehow appear on your schedule without much warning.
Have some fun dressing up your black dress for your virtual New Year’s Eve party. Pull your hair into a chic updo and put on a pair of glamorous earrings that sparkle from every angle. Wear a bold statement necklace that features contrasting stones to instantly transform your look into one that’s truly festive. Try a dress with embellishment or adornment, like a decorative collar.
Fit-and-flare dresses enjoy a great reputation for their playful and relatively youthful appearance. When you want to dress up but you’re sure the party won’t call for you to go all out, a fit-and-flare dress makes a great alternative.
It’s just dressy enough to help you feel a little more pulled together and ready for something that you probably aren’t accustomed to attending. It’s true that virtual New Year’s Eve parties don’t quite generate the same level of excitement as the real deal, but there’s something fun about putting all of your energy into it anyway and making the most of the experience. After all, you’re spending time with your favorite people — and even in a virtual setting, that’s a great way to ring in the new year.
Not every New Year’s Eve party calls for all-out glitz and glamour. Maybe it’s just you and a handful of your closest friends, and you’ve all agreed to welcome the year in casual style and total comfort. You can easily throw on a sweater dress when you want to wear something that’s just a touch more polished than, say, a pair of yoga pants and a T-shirt.
The beauty of the sweater dress is that it’s remarkably easy to wear. Just pull it on and you’re done. Forget the accessories if you aren’t in a dressy mood or if the occasion doesn’t call for it. It’s also incredibly comfortable, so while you’re busy socializing, snacking, and toasting, you can focus on the things that are most important instead of worrying about a dress that doesn’t quite feel right.
There’s a dress out there for every type of New Year’s Eve party, from the most formal to the most casual to everything in-between. Whether you opt for something plush and understated or something undeniably glamorous, make sure that you’re comfortable from top to bottom. It’s the only way to have an unforgettable time during this unprecedented celebration, ringing in the new year with those you love the most.
