Dress the part for Christmas, New Year’s Eve and other festivities

Summer is just around the corner and that means Christmas, New Year’s Eve and other celebrations. It can be tricky to find the perfect outfit for each occasion so we take the guess work out when it comes to great Gold Coast women’s clothing for every occasion.

  1. Kaftans and maxi dresses for day events

Gold Coast summer fashion needs to be breezy and cool, that’s why it’s no surprise kaftans and maxi dresses are big this season. Whether you’re hosting the party and need to run around after your guests or will be draping yourself in a chair, sipping your wine and letting your sister in law do all the work this year, you’ll stay cool and stylish all day in these floor length statements.

  1. Structured pieces for night events

The nights are cooler so you can afford to go for something a little clingier and tight. Ensure there is still breathing room though in caseyou get up to help clean or have a dance. Low cut necklines for the modest chest are great and open backs for the larger chest will keep you cool. Two pieces are big this season so if you’re comfortable showing your midriff try it out. Sleeveless will always be better than sleeved too.

  1. All the colours of the rainbow

Colour is big this season and with gorgeous sunny days why wear black and dark colours? Leave that for winter! Be as bright as the day in this season’s top colour, pink. Or if pink is too girly for you, try something else in the rainbow from Kermit green to sunshine yellow. The main rule for wearing colour is wear LOTS of it.

  1. New Year’s Eve dressing

The outfit you wear is important, it’s what you’ll ring in the next year of your life with and, if you have big plans for 2018, your outfit should show that. Golds and silvers are still big as always and it’s a great time to give all things glittery and shiny a go if you’re not brave enough during the rest of the year. A great addition to the gold and silver metallic trend is rose gold, so you’ll see items available in that shade too. Go big we say, all that glitters is gold!

  1. Accessories are everything

Nothing says “I’m here to party” like a big, bold necklace. Bright, chunky or a statement shape will serve you well. Just ensure it matches the neckline of your dress or top otherwise you’ll be less hot mumma and more hot mess.
