As you anticipate the holidays and all of the festivities that come along with this time of year, you may be wondering about end of the year fashion that will turn heads at upcoming parties.  Here’s a look at some trends that will help you reign in the new year while setting you apart from the crowd, according to Harper’s Bazaar.

Ultra-violet is ultra-popular as 2018 comes to a close.  Dare to wear this eye-catching color to the next holiday-themed shindig you have on your calendar.  It’s both festive and dramatic and will get you noticed in a crowd of other party-goers.  Ultra-violet clothing can be paired with matching makeup and accessories to make an ensemble really pop.  The shade-of-the-year comes in a variety of metallic pieces, which add shine.  You can also find it in shimmery satin and flower-themed jewelry.

Also popular as the year draws to a close is adorning a body-hugging cocktail dress and topping with a bold fur jacket.  This will allow you to mix and mingle without getting too hot indoors while layering against the chill of the outside when you eventually make your exit.  Consider deep red or striking emerald to showcase the colors of the season.

While you’re at it, you could choose to celebrate the season with a present-like look and wear a solid top that secures with a thick ribbon at the center.  These wrap tops are all the rage, and truly fit in with holidays.  They’re typically form-fitting and the bow adds appeal by accentuating waistline curves.  A wrap dress or form-fitting blazer are other options.

Shine really is the perfect palette for any celebration and designers are coming up with new and interesting ways to showcase your shine this season.  Shiny camisoles, skirts, pants, and handbags are lining shelves, as are eye-popping trench coats and shimmery knee-length boots.  It’s easy to add even more celebratory shine with shimmery makeup and nail colors, as well.  This glitzy glamour is ideal for watching the ball drop.

A close second to shine is crystal, which has also long been party-friendly.  Crystal accents can be seen just about anywhere, as is adornments on bags, boots, broches, and buttons.  It can be found in unexpected places, too, such as on high heels and undergarments.  Its ornament-like flare is naturally festive.

If you’re looking for a more classic look this holiday season, there’s always the ever-timeless little black dress for the ladies.  Never underestimate the bold statement that’s made with this simple article of clothing, which can easily be paired with flashy accessories.  Whatever your style, you’re likely to find an item or two that pulls together the perfect party ware so you can focus on having fun!
