Trying to work out what to wear on 31st December? We’ve done the hard work for you

It’s always the toughest time of the year to dress for.

You want to look uber glam…but then your purse is still wincing from the excesses of all that Christmas shopping. Ouch.

Well we’ve come up with the perfect looks to make sure you don’t wake up on New Year’s Day cringing at the photos you’ve been tagged in on Facebook (because frankly no-one should have to deal with that on top of a hangover).

All the dresses are from The Now Collection in association with Apricot – and have been hand picked by us as the perfect frocks to rock around the clock to.

And the best bit? None of them cost more than £44 (cocktails not included).

Now’s Editor Sally Eyden looks red hot in this shimmer strapless peplum dress, £44 (also available in plum).

Deputy Editor Victoria Kennedy will be adding extra sparkle to the dance floor in this Art Deco shift dress, £32.

Art Director Kirsty Harlow works the rock chick look in a bonded lace skater dress, £36.
