It's that time again: New Year's Eve is finally upon us. But while you've been stuffing your face full of cheese (stilton is this editor's fromage of choice, if you're wondering), you've not had the chance to go out and think about what you'll be wearing for that NYE party you're going to. So what's the solution? Go out and buy a whole new outfit? Just hold your sequinned horses right there. Instead of splashing a tonne of cash, there are plenty of party outfit ideas that you will definitely already have in your wardrobe. And you only need a few tweaks to make them ready for a party or five.
From a simple bra trick to a new way of wearing this year's biggest dress style, we've hunted down 11 ideas that are perfect for a celebratory do. Just because 2016 wasn't the best year doesn't mean you can't say good riddance to it in style.
Click through our gallery for 11 style tweaks that are great for last-minute NYE party outfit ideas.
Style Notes: You've been wearing a graphic tee with your cropped jeans over the summer and winter. But to give a refresh, pull out your office suit and wear one underneath it. It'll be smart enough for that NYE party but casual for the dance floor.
Want to upgrade your graphic T-shirt? Try this from Tease + Totes.
Style Notes: We're just guessing here, but you probably bought a pleated metallic skirt this year (they were everywhere). Instead of pairing it with your trusty Stan Smiths, wear with your favourite ankle boots or heels and a white T-shirt. While the sneaker trend is great for making this skirt look more casual, NYE is no time for holding back.
Style Notes: The choker is one of the accessories of 2016. It instantly makes any outfit look party-ready.
Style Notes: If in doubt, a little bit of sheer fabric can go a long way. Instead of placing a modest cami underneath that blouse you have, just go for a bra. Well, it is New Year's Eve.
Opt for a pretty bra or crop top underneath this blouse.
Style Notes: We don't need to tell you how big the slip dress was in 2016, so make yours wearable for your festive dos by wearing a roll neck underneath.
Simple yet elegant.
Style Notes: Everyone has a pair of smart black trousers in their wardrobe. Wear with a leather jacket and you're good to go. Sometimes it's just a case of mixing up a classic workwear item with a more casual piece.
Stick to something simple but elegant.
Style Notes: Still struggling? Turn to classic colour-blocking. For the top, opt for something like a black jacket and roll neck, and then below, go for a brightly coloured pair of trousers.
Black and pink might just be one of our favourite-ever colour combos.
Style Notes: The quickest way to make any outfit look disco-worthy? Add some leopard print.
If you don't have any leopard print in your wardrobe, then this will cost you less than a tenner.
Style Notes: Wearing your dressing gown is totally acceptable these days. Simply throw your satin or silk version over your jeans, tee, and heels and you're good to go.
This is the one place in Zara you probably haven't looked in yet.
Style Notes: Put on your favourite bra and your favourite top, and expose one shoulder. It's as simple as that.
A bralette is perfect for this look.
Style Notes: Anything with frills says party to us. Pull any of those ruffled pieces out of your wardrobe that you wore over the summer, and wear with a black jacket for evening chicness.
