Planning what you're going to wear on New Year's Eve can seem like a daunting task, but it shouldn't be a problem if you stick to these simple styling rules...

1.Going out to dinner? Then focus on statement prints in classic silhouettes. This Matthew Williamson jersey dress makes a statement without shouting 'look at me'. Team it with a pair of black, heeled ankle boots, opaque tights and sexy, tousled hair.

2.If you're attending a friend's house party go for something a little more fashion-forward and trend-driven. This icey Markus Lupfer mini dress is sure to turn heads, and will look fabulous with tanned pins and a pair of glittery heels.

3.And last but not least, if you're braving the nightclubs on the 31st stand out from the crowd in a bright party dress and statement heels. MSGM's asymmetric hot pink design is our top choice, as it combines red carpet glamour with Studio 54 decadence. And, if you're feeling particularly fearless, team your frock with Giuseppe Zanotti's star sandals.
