A couple of weeks ago I received a style challenge to create a bridesmaid ensemble that would look dashing for a New Years Eve wedding.
I was given four dress variations by Weddington Way an online boutique for wedding party styles and the brief of creating a full look, as if I were the maid of honour.
For the first look I've paired this deep blue 'Audrey' style dress with nude accessories, basic earrings, medium height shoes and a detailed clutch bag.
On this second look I wanted to try something less traditional. This 'Elizabeth' style dress is very simple and clean cut, so any bright colour can snazz it up.
Seeing as its a New Years Eve wedding a bit of shimmer and sparkles is always in order.
This tux style cape is a great take on the original jacket.
Red, really brings out the silver shade in this dress.
I love this Navy lace dress, its so chic and flattering for a winter wedding.
Black eyeliner and Red lips are a classic and would carry the bridesmaids through from the ceremony to the new year countdown.
This Black and White jacket would certainly secure some warmth (who knows, it might snow)
This purple ensemble is very deep and quite eye catching.
To tone it down I've paired it with neutral lips, silver accessories, minimal jewellery and this stunning eye make up.
Hair styles always depend on the length of your hair.
These four are my personal favourites.
As with everything, it's important not to look like the bride (it's her big day and so on)
This bohemian braided bun is really pretty and looks effortless.
For something easier and quicker simple big curls pulled back with a decorative clip can look magnificent.
These luscious curls weaved in to a braid across the top are particularly pretty.
Lastly a side bun rolled and folded from underneath looks very fresh faced, especially when topped with some of the weddings chosen flowers.
