Yes, New Year's Eve Is Overrated, But These 8 Outfits Are Making Us Into It

A quick poll in the Who What Wear UK office confirmed what I suspected: Most of us are reluctant to venture out into the world of a triple-priced taxi and extortionate menus. Dinner parties, drinks at friends' houses and trips to local pubs often trump club nights, but just because you're not battling surging ride-share fares and elbowing your way to a drink doesn't mean you can't have fun with sequins…

Whatever your plans, New Year's Eve is an opportunity to play dress-up and have fun with unexpected styling. Which is why we've turned to our favourite Instagrammers to bring you some of the coolest NYE-ready looks we've seen recently. Unless you're going to see the fireworks, in which case we advise you forget the glamour and pile on the knitwear. Keep scrolling to see and shop our favourite New Year's Eve outfit ideas; then simply accessorise with a glass of champers.
