NYE Shenanigans


*Marshuka Hasan dives into everything you need for an epic New Year’s par


Believe it or not, boots covered in glitter and sparkle are in
Experiment! Be a little crazy before the year ends. This trend has already been rocked by many street-style bloggers and is showing up in stores. If you have been wanting to make a style statement, then this is it. Razzle-dazzle your outfit and make it drab to fab! If you need some inspo, we have got you covered.

Add accessories to your New Year’s outfit
Let your light shine! Invest in some new accessories. Anything and everything sparkly. Purchase glamourous accessories, ranging from shiny purses to metallic flats, statement earrings and glitter belts. Be frivolous and festive, you deserve it.

Confetti fortune balloons
What better way to throw a party with confetti balloons and good fortune? Get translucent balloons or you can make things more interesting, by opting for colour changing led balloons. Now comes the fun part, coming up with the fortune! They will definitely be stoked to learn that they get to pop a balloon when the clock strikes 12 and reveal their 2019 fortune inside.

Disco balls to use as party décor.
Throwing a party also requires you to go all out with the décor. Add lots of glam to your party with good old, mirror disco balls. Collect large, small and medium sized mirrored balls. You can hang these disco balls from the ceiling (make sure you cluster them together) or you can use them to make a beautiful tablescape. Use a silver runner, then arrange the disco balls down the centre.

Engraved chocolates
Chocolates win hearts! If you want to win the hearts of yours guests this NYE engraved chocolates might do the trick. These personalised chocolates will definitely satisfy your guests’ sweet tooth and will leave them satisfied and happy to start the new year.

Fusion color drinkware
This set of six champagne glasses were practically made for your new year’s party. The colourful ombre effect is stylish for any day, but positively perfect for your new year’s celebrations.


Golden foil curtain
Sometimes we get carried away during parties and we end up forgetting to click pictures and capture the beautiful moments. If you are looking for fastest and easiest way to set up a photo booth, then we have got the best tip for you. Just invest on a golden foil curtain!

Invite your guests in style
Keep away from the generic store-bought New Year’s card. Let your creativity flow and add a personal touch to your invitations by creating your own. All you need is cardstock or patterned paper, glitter glue and beautiful ornaments like artificial flowers or star stickers. Check out Daraz! They have plenty of options to choose from.

Jewellery that glow in the dark
Who doesn’t love a bit of glow in the dark fun at a party? Create nostalgic memories with your friends throw an enchanted glow in the dark party. You can buy glow in the dark bracelets and shades to hand out as party favours.

Ditch the fireworks this year and go for lanterns instead. Before the clock strikes midnight, gather your guests, go up to the roof and start a countdown. Then let your lantern free like you are leaving 2018 in the dust! Cheers to new beginnings.

Photo booth props
If you are trying to click Insta-worthy pictures you need to make things little more exciting at the photo booth. Click amazing pictures with friends and family and make memories that is going to last a lifetime. Head over to Daraz for great options.

Quickly, jump on the bandwagon, fashion has been wild for the animal prints again.
Look maximum dapper and trendy, if you coordinate them correctly. So, do not be afraid to step onto the wild side. Break free from the traditional leopard prints, and try a snake print flowy dress. Layer on a monochrome belt and a jacket to break up all that print, and keep the look grounded with simple accessories and Lucita heels.

Ravishing Leather!
Nothing shouts out winter more than leather. Leather jackets are a timeless classic, and it’s a key piece for any man or woman’s wardrobe. We quite fancy the Zesh + Co. leather collection.

Obedient to winter, Fur is back to keep us warm
End the year on a chic-note, add a statement fur piece to your outfit. From multi-coloured coats to the oh-so adorable ‘teddy’ coats, faux fur seems to be taking over the fashion rails. Head over to Zesh + Co., you can opt for the subtle, fitted fur gilet in soft natural colours or the fashion-forward multi-coloured oversized faux fur jackets.

Shimmer and shine in a sequin outfit
Unsurprisingly, sequins have taken centre stage this year. For full-on festive twinkle, a dress should be your go-to but to strike the right balance we suggest tempering with the shimmer of sequin tops with wide legged trousers and platform heels.

Vamp up your closet with velvet.
The fabric of nobility and royalty can assume many personalities. If the idea of wearing anything sparkly fills you with dread, there are other alternatives; our favourite being the velvet power suit which should be worn with stiletto heels and heaps of attitude. Men shouldn’t shy away from this trend either, a black or midnight blue velvet blazer paired with a light turtle neck or a crisp white shirt can make any man have a 007 moment. Hence, have your pick from the Zesh + Co. velvet selection.

Youthful Plaids
The head honcho of the winter festive wardrobe for men is and always seem to be the heritage pattern in all its fantastic iterations. For a young twist, try a Harrington jacket in a bold plaid which amps up everything from denim to slick black trousers. Women have all been crushing on the wide legged, tape button side pants all of 2018. Why not wrap up this year with one of these in a classic plaid for a more sophisticated look. You can find some great options at Zesh + Co.

Up your party game, with fairy lights
Can there be a new year’s party without fairy lights? The answer is no! It is an affordable way to add a little brightness and life to your party. Make it happen, we recommend Daraz, as they have an array of selections to choose from. Hurry up!

Xtra is all you need to be this New Year Eve.
If the princess in you wants to come out and play dress up, there couldn’t be a better night. The point is to not hold back. A flowy gown is the perfect head-turning outfit formula. Bedazzle the crowd in an elegant a-line gown and kiss 2018 goodbye.

Zing up your new year wardrobe with pieces that stand out
New Year’s Eve means new year resolutions. Why not bring a blast from the past before you step into a new you? Western trends have been riding back in this winter with evening-appropriate aesthetics. Embrace anything from sharply tailored full denim looks to svelte satin shirts and silky prairie dresses, paired with fabulous cowboy boots.
