The chic party dress that everyone will be wearing as the clock strikes midnight on NYE.

While we’ve all agreed that the linen wrap dress will be the outfit du jour for Christmas lunch, now let’s move onto December 31st.

New Year’s Eve.

As we farewell the year that was and welcome in 2019, everyone will be celebrating the occasion in the silk slip dress.

It’s the dressy but cool one-hit wonder with a swishy silhouette that oozes dancing potential.

It also borrows from one of 2018’s dominant trends – the ’90s – while being the party dress you can re-wear again and again for all your summer parties and BBQs. Plus, when it gets cooler, just layer on a t-shirt or a turtle neck, or wear under you favourite jumper. It’s practically an investment for 2019.

While the ever-so-chic midi length seems to be the pick of the fashion set, we’ve searched high and low for a hemline to suit every taste and dress code. May we recommend you wear yours with a pair of statement earrings and strappy sandals, and get ready to conquer whatever plans you have in store, whether that’s ditching the heels to dance the night away or disappearing from the party at the very sensible time of 10pm.

You do you.

So while we celebrate the very last days of 2018, here are some of our favourite silk slip dresses that you can ‘add to cart’ now.

The Mamamia Out Loud team go through their words for the New Year for 2017. What’s your word of the year?
