FAIRTRADE FRIDAY: NEW YEAR’S EVE PARTY DRESS IDEAS

It feels a little strange to think about New Year’s Eve with Christmas right before us. But, today, both ASOS and People Tree are offering express shipping, so that the perfect dress can arrive in time to wear it for any New Year’s festivities. I’ve quickly pulled together some of my favourite, New Year’s Eve-appropriate party dresses from ASOS and People Tree:

New Years Eve collage1. ASOS Africa Peplum Mini Dress in Floral Print from ASOS / 2. Confetti Print Sleeveless Dress from People Tree / 3. Edun Burn Out Velvet Mix Origami Dress from ASOS / 4. Cece Bodycon Dress in Black from People Tree / 5. Elise Party Dress from People Tree / 6. House of Hackney Silk Day Dress in Carpet Print from ASOS


DETAILS

CASUAL
1. ASOS Africa Peplum Mini Dress in Floral Print available online for $30.47AUD (on sale from $114.27AUD!).

I would style this with black sandals in Australia, or black stockings and boots for somewhere cooler in weather.

2. People Tree Confetti Print Sleeveless Dress available online for £27.50GBP (on sale from £55.00GBP).

Confetti = celebrations.

This light, bright and casual dress is my top choice for my New Year’s Eve celebrations this year which will be a pretty casual affair – at a friend’s house with a swimming pool.


DRESSY
3. Edun Burn Out Velvet Mix Origami Dress
from ASOS available online for $399.95AUD (on sale from $666.58AUD… a girl can dream, right?).

Edun is the fair trade brand from Bono and his wife – and obviously famous celebrity musicians earn a lot more than me. Nonetheless, if there were ever a time to buy this gorgeous LBD, now would be it – it’s hugely discounted.

4. People Tree Cece Bodycon Dress in Black available online for £60.00GBP.

The classic LBD is made more interesting with ruching. I would dress this up even more with a sparkly silver statement necklace or these gold cuffs… because New Year’s Eve and sparkle are made for each other.


 FORMAL

5. People Tree Elise Party Dress available online for £85.00GBP.

The full skirt and bright colour make this dress a perfect bold choice for a formal New Year’s Eve soiree.

6. House of Hackney Silk Day Dress in Carpet Print from ASOS available online for $325.67 (on sale from $524.78!).

Soft pleats and sweet, puffy sleeves are feminine and ladylike. Silk elevates this day dress to formal occasion-worthy.

Ethical credentials: Made by a Fair Trade Organization (2, 4, 5); Made with transparency in a fair trade arrangement (1,3); Made in England (6).


What are you wearing this New Year’s Eve?

Yours Fairly,
