There is a say that goes ‘a new year, a new you’. While this might just be a marketing tagline to get us to restock our wardrobes come January (I fall for it every time), I like to think it is a time when we can cleanse of the last year and move forward with who we want to be for the next 12 months. So surely if we are saying goodbye to our 2016 selfs this New Years Eve and welcoming the arrival of our new 2017 versions, then we should be doing it in style. But don’t worry, while the clock is quickly ticking down to the big night, you still have time to organise your outfit. Whether you are hitting the town or having an intimate dinner like me, I believe it’s all about being comfortable. I always go for non restricting clothing even when it comes to a suit, go for something with stretch and shoes that can take you through the long night ahead. But more importantly, I believe you have to have a good watch! There is nothing worse than pulling your phone out constantly to keep checking how much longer to the final moments of 2016. I recommend investing in something classical like a Skagen watch when clocking the situation this NYE if you haven’t already. With a slick and modern design, Skagen watches are light on the wrist and the wallet making them also the perfect gift. But don’t worry if you aren’t gifted one this Christmas, why not buy one yourself as nice little something to welcome the new 2017 version of yourself to the party?
