New Year’s Eve at home is no excuse for loungewear…
With many of us spending New Year’s Eve at home, you’d be forgiven for wanting to don your trusty loungewear. But whether it’s sleek satin pyjamas, sequin adorned trousers in relaxed tailoring, or tulle-bedecked slippers, there are myriad ways to look polished without comprising comfort this NYE. Congruently, for those in the ‘go big to stay home’ camp, get ready to embrace the full party spirit in mini dresses and Oscars-worthy heels.
Scroll on for the CF edit on getting dressed to celebrate NYE from the comfort of your living room (whether you are a minimalist or a maximalist).
Venetian shoe designer, René Caovilla, makes shoes so beautiful they should be on display in a glass cabinet, but that would be a shame for your feet. The Cleo sandal is the ultimate party shoe to dazzle in, with a spring in the ankle strap that sends rhinestones curling up the leg.

Asceno is the name on the lips of fashion insiders for the chicest of pyjamas with a tailoring edge. This bamboo satin pair are sold as separates, so you can make them work harder with other pieces in your wardrobe. I regularly wear my Asceno silk shirts with jeans or leather leggings by day.
The headband has long served as the headwear of choice for royals and socialites thanks to it's nostalgic, feminine appeal. An embellished headband is a quick-fix for party-ready glamour, instantly adding polish. This Erdem one, in a chic monochrome palette with bead, crystal, and pearl embellishments, is a grown-up take on the trend.

A velvet smoking blazer is a wardrobe classic you will return to time and again, and well worth the investment. This one from Reiss is a steal; wear it with nothing underneath for after-dark glamour.
Alexander McQueen is known for it’s exceptional tailoring and this sculpted jumpsuit is super-flattering with boning bodice and tapered trousers. It would make for an excellent black-tie outfit too. Pair with a crystal-embellished belt to accentuate the waist.
These A Piedi slippers are the Marie Antoinette of footwear, with mink-hued satin and plumes of ruffled tulle. Too pretty to keep to yourself, with a leather sole they can also be worn outside.
This wide-leg slouchy pair of Joseph trousers and co-ordinating vest is the comfortable way to wear sequins at home. Go maximalist with the duo, or wear separately – perhaps with a cashmere roll neck or velvet trousers.

Not the LBD but the Little Pink Dress. Decadent and Dynasty-esque this 80s-inspired minidress, in a punchy fuschia hue, is just what we need to say au revoir to 2020 in style.
If you can't see a NYE fireworks display you might as well dress like it – try this blouse, bursting with a swirling sequin motif. A statement top is perfect for dressing from the waist up (as we’ve all become accustomed to in an era of Zoom meetings and social catch ups).

The slip dress is a holiday-wardrobe staple, when as little fabric as possible is a must in the balmy heat, and also an adaptable eveningwear solution that can be dressed up or down. Olivia Von Halle is a go-to for her silk bias-cut slips. The Issa is a staple shape in numerous colours, but we particularly love this midnight blue with added velvet panelling for extra decadence.
Mondo Mondo's jewellery is ornate and decorative. We love this shoulder-sweeping pair of clip-on earrings made from hammered gold-plated brass to represent oysters with dazzling faceted crystals.
