Plus, a New Year’s Eve party is the perfect opportunity to embrace the ’80s trend that’s been filling this season with colour, bedazzlement and print. I love the idea of taking trending animal print and upping the ante by pairing it with highlighter green, or finding a statement ruffle on a dress and owning it like it’s something new.
