New Year’s Eve Style On A Budget…

If you’ve been maxed out by Christmas and need a NYE outfit urgently, we’ve got some tips for New Year’s Eve style on a budget…


If you can’t afford to splash out on a new dress, dust down an old LBD from your wardrobe and update it with some gorgeous accessories. A big pair of chandelier earrings, a chunky necklace or bangles can really transform an outfit and add that bit of NYE sparkle – updating your look without breaking the bank. Take inspiration from Kate Moss’ 80’s inspired, Dallas party look for all out glam. Pick-up some affordable accessories from the high street, from the likes of ASOS, River Island, Primark and New Look.


For me, NYE is all about the make-up. Go all out with dramatic, sweeping eyes and a generous sprinkling of glitter dust, stick-on gems and a slick of red on the lips for that serious party look. Get the look from an affordable brand such as Rimmel, leaving you plenty of change to spend on drinks!



Along with make-up, nails are absolutely key for NYE when you’re on a budget. Whether it’s a dramatic colour, gems or transfers, you can really transform your party look with some dazzling nails. Match with your glitter eye make-up by opting for metallic silver or gold, then pile on the statement rings and you’re ready to go.


My best friend and I constantly borrow one another’s clothes and there’s no better way to get a totally new look if you’ve got zero budget. Get together with your friends pre-NYE and do an outfit swap, you’ll all then end up with ‘new’ outfits for the night but plenty of cash to spend on drinks. Best of both worlds!

Happy New Year and see you in 2014!
