Going out on the town for New Years? The biggest question is always, what to wear! This article on Vogue is a wonderful roundup of some festive party outfits for under £100, shoes and accessories included! We’re also loving the ASOS sale at the moment, with some fabulous sequins and sparkles starting at less than a tenner!

But what if you’re all dressed up with nowhere to go? If you’re Scotland based for Hogmanay (the Scottish term for New Year’s Eve if you’re not in the know!), check out best places to party at New Year in Scotland’s cities, from Edinburgh’s Hogmanay Snow Ball Ceilidh to cocktails and Burlesque at Glasgow’s Club Noir.


If you prefer to stay at home and snuggle, there’s some great TV lined up for Sunday 31st December. Be sure to tune into the musical NYE stalwart of Jools Holland’s Hooternanny, and don’t miss comedy classics like Alan Carr’s New Year Spectacular and the infamous Big Fat Quiz of the Year.

In terms of wardrobe choices, we suggest nothing less than the finest of pyjamas, and that of course leads us to Scottish designer extraordinaire Karen Mabon. Luxurious silk twin sets printed with avocados and corn-on-the-cobs? Yes please!
