No plans for New Year’s Eve? Head to the big smoke for our pick of the best NYE parties in London.
The fancy dress party - PROHIBITION PARTY, BLOOMSBURY BALLROOM
It’s time to party Great Gatsby style. Head back to the ’20s for this Prohibition era-themed shindig, with jazz bands, Charleston dancers, gambling tables, silent movie screenings and a piano bar, all taking place at the grand Bloomsbury Ballroom. And remember to read our party rules for inspiration on what to wear…
The swanky supper – 5 COURSE DINNER @ BEAGLE
Fancy a five course feast but can’t face cooking? The Beagle will lay it on for you. Found under Hoxton station, this restaurant is equal parts swish and cool, with high arched ceilings, exposed brick walls, and food that’s out of this world. The NYE menu kicks off with a charcuterie platter, followed by crab tortellini, steak and treacle tart to finish. Yum.
The club night – FOUND PARTY @ CORONET THEATRE
London party pros Found are taking over the Coronet Theatre for NYE, with six rooms and ten hours of house and techno fun. Want special treatment? A VIP ticket gives you access to a private tropical cocktail bar, VIP toilets and queue-jump into the venue.

Got a Topshop look worth sharing? Then we want to see it! Our new #TopshopStyle gallery lets you share your styling on our site – just share on Twitter or Instagram using #TopshopStyle.
We’ll pick our favourites to join the hall of style fame! So what are we looking for? Check out the guidelines below to ensure your pic gets picked…
1. Wear Topshop! We want to see how you’re putting your own spin on our designs, whether it’s one favourite piece or a top-to-toe look.
2. Art direct! A great selfie needs great composition – consider the background (a blank wall can be just as effective as a beach in the Bahamas) and remember to show as much as your outfit as possible – you can’t go wrong with a full length snap in the mirror.
1. Share any non-people pics. Products on their own, screenshots or snaps of your lunch won’t make the grade – we want to see YOU!
2. Over edit – we prefer shots in natural daylight without extra text or photoshopping! All you need is a great filter.
3. Be rude… for obvious reasons, any offensive pics won’t be shown in the gallery.
Show us how you’re wearing Topshop on Instagram and Twitter using the hashtag #TopshopStyle

Craving a new year holiday? There’s no need to splurge on a plane fare with these top notch UK retreats! From slick countryside barns to plush hotel stays, your first 2015 trip could be right on your doorstep…
CLIFF BARNS, NORFOLK
These renovated barns make the perfect hideaway. Kitted out with stone fire places, Western-themed decor and a mega hot tub, you and a group of friends can kick back with the piles of books or board games provided, or summon the in-house chef to come and cook you a three-course feast. Like the sound of it? Enter our competition to win a stay for you and 10 others with i-escape.com, plus a Topshop shopping spree!
NO. 131, CHELTENHAM
Forget quaint cottages, this Cotswolds hotel feels more like a cool New York pad. Enjoy slick rooms with enormous showers and double-sided plasma TVs, a restaurant with neon modern art lining the walls and a buzzing basement cocktail bar open ’til early doors. Our favourite part? No. 131 is all about the little touches – think pre-heated hot water bottles at bedtime, the complimentary painkillers at breakfast and all our favourite style mags piled up in the lounge area.
PRIORY BAY YURTS, ISLE OF WIGHT
Thinking ahead for a summer break? Why not try glamping? The recently opened yurts at Priory Bay on the Isle of Wight are not what you’d normally expect from a campsite. Each yurt offers luxury bedrooms (complete with Victorian-style bath tubs), access to a private beach and its very own butler service. Beats a three-man tent at Glastonbury!

Rooted in the ’90s, normcore re-surfaced in a big way for 2014. All about dressing ‘normal’, it’s got everyone harking back to the early Friends days in easy jersey pieces, pale denim and trainers with everything!

2. ‘HEALTH GOTH’
No, this trend isn’t about Mortica Adams drinking green juice, but a cool mix of goth gear and sportswear. Think all-black everything and rips galore, given a modern spin with athletic fabrics and futuristic cuts.

Athleisure has taken sportswear out of the gym. Fashion eds swapped heels for trainers at LFW, trackies were given a luxe makeover on the catwalk and Beyonce announced a sports-fashion line with us for next year.

Fashion meets tech! Wearables are changing the way we think about fashion, with clothing or accessories that provide a practical function too. Will we all be rocking Google Glass by next Christmas?
