Well with little more than a day to go until we ring in the New Year there’s still just enough time for you to pick up a glamorous new ensemble from Lux-Fix’s range of designers. With that in mind we’ve scoured our site to find the very best party pieces…

Christmas day may be about family (and over eating) but New Year’s Eve is a night for parties and painting the town red. On Christmas you want to be comfortable, for New Year’s you need something sexy and fashionable. Enter Paper London; their sleek, ultra modern silhouettes are ideal for confidant, style conscious party girls. This year slip into their sexy but smart Red Sky Dress for an effortlessly contemporary and slightly edgy look. This is not a dress for the faint of heart but rather a dress designed to bring out your inner diva.

With temperatures reaching record lows if you’re heading out on the 31st you’ll definitely need to wrap up in something warm. ‘Warm’, however, doesn’t necessarily mean ‘ugly’. Keep the cold winter winds at bay in style with Llunaa’s Cream Furry Jacket. This fuzzy jacket is a distinctly trendy take on the fur and shearling jackets of yesteryear and could easily match any up-to-date party outfit from androgynous tailored trousers to sensuous mini dress.

No party outfit would be complete without a killer pair of heels. Shoe brand Fury London make some of the fiercest heels around making their edgy designs a natural choice for an end of year night of debauchery. This NYE try their effortlessly cool and rock ’n’ roll Rex Ankle Boots. These are boots that could add a touch of fierce, hard edged glamour to almost any day or evening ensemble making them a must-have for any confidant young partygoer.

Lastly every girl out on the town needs a place to store her valuables whilst she dances the night away. A clutch may seem like to obvious evening choice but this NYE why not go hands-free with a chic shoulder bag? Spanish leather goods brand Lacambra creates great quality handbags that combine style and functionality. Their small but perfectly formed Mini Chic Bag would make an ideal party bag being just the right size for all life’s essentials.
