Another year has come to an end — how the heck did time pass so quickly?! We hope you WYLDones have had a great year and if not, let’s hope 2023 will be kinder to you..
New Year's Eve is an exciting time to celebrate the year and bring in the next. We all have different ways of celebrating — some sleep through midnight, some host a house party with family and friends, and others are partying it up at a club. Whatever you’re doing this New Year's Eve, looking good should be a priority.
Dressing to the nines brings in good vibes for the new year so we’ve brought in a whole new range of party dresses to Singapore. If you’re heading out, we know you’re looking forward to watching the fireworks. We’ve got the lowdown on the NYE parties and the quieter spots where you can enjoy the big bang in your new frock.
For the partygoers...
The stand out from the crowd frock:
Dance the night away in the comfortable MINKPINK Mini Dress with cheeky waist cutouts. If you’re the life of the party, this bright orange hue will suit the mood.
Wear it to: Marquee
The biggest and most extravagant club in Singapore is having a double-night party if you’re up for it! On 30 December, DJ Ben Nicky will be spinning and tickets start at $50. On New Year’s Eve, Dutch DJ, Nicky Romero, will be taking us through the new year with his EDM hits. While online tickets are sold out for the 31st, tickets will still be sold at the door based on the club’s capacity. Tickets start at $100 for ladies and $120 for gents.

I’m classy, flirty and sexy all in one:
If you’re not sure which side of the spectrum to dress on — classy or sexy, this one nails it right in the middle.
Wear it to: LAVO
What better view of the new year's fireworks than at the rooftop of Marina Bay Tower? LAVO is treating us to a free-flow food and drinks party this year which starts at 10pm. Dance all night to the tunes of LAVO’s resident spinner, DJ MinTea. Tickets start at $348.

Channel Marilyn Monroe in this modern take on her iconic white dress. The halter neck and flowy skirt silhouette is a classy cocktail party dress for Singapore’s glitzy club scene.
Wear it to: CÉ LA VI
CÉ LA VI sure knows how to bring in the new year in style. The rooftop bar and club lounge is hosting an old Hollywood-themed party with a black tie and red carpet-ready dress code. The party starts from 3pm till late so you can enjoy both the sunset views and the firework spectacle. CÉ LA VI is inviting their resident DJs, Kenneth Francis, Leonard Tan & Fadille, to take you through 2023. Tickets start at $38.
1 Bayfront Avenue Marina Bay Sands, Hotel, Tower 3, 018971
If you’re looking for a maxi dress with sleeves and with a sexy edge, this one’s for you. Its dipping neckline keeps it cheeky and it’s the perfect wrap dress for Singapore’s partygoers.
Wear it to: Manifest Pool Party at 1-Altitude Coast
Dive into 2023 with a big splash! The Manifest Pool Part begins at 4:30pm till 2am so you’ve got plenty of time to take a dip. The theme is Ocean Royalty so think mermaids, Poseidon, and blue, green, silver and gold hues. You’ll want to dress to impress because we heard the best fit gets a free bottle of Champagne! Tickets start at $50.
10 Artillery Ave, #07-01, 099951
For a free view…
She’s beauty, she’s grace:
Feel dainty but still comfortable in the tropical heat. We’re super into the understated neutral floral prints, perfect for an outdoor picnic.
Wear it to: Marina Barrage
If you want to spend quality time with family and friends this NYE, host a picnic at the Marina Barrage! This location has an amazing view of the Marina Bay skyline where you can enjoy both the sunset and the fireworks. Be sure to get there early to pick a good spot and beat the crowd.
8 Marina Gardens Dr, Singapore 018951
Sea salt in my hair frock:
Mediterranean seaside or Singapore’s waterfront, she’s the one. The Staple the Lable white maxi dress keeps it elegant in the front but she's ready for a party at the back.
Wear it to: Marina Bay Waterfront
Right outside the skyscraping Marina Bay towers, you’ll find a completely free yet breathtaking view at the Marina Bay Waterfront Promenade. The waterfront promenade walkway is a great viewing area that overlooks the bay and Singapore's iconic city silhouette. It’s also a romantic spot where you’ll find water fountain features and might even catch a light show. You can stop by the Helix Bridge which is pretty close to the floating platform so you can get a better view of the fireworks.
Marina Boulevard, Singapore 018940
A party dress for women doesn’t always have to be short and fitted. This MINKPINK number screams effortlessly fun with its gorgeous ruffles and cheeky off-the-shoulder silhouette. Picnic? Dance floor? She can do both.
Wear it to: Bay East Garden
Marina Barrage can get a little crowded on NYE so the next best alternative is the Bay East Garden, which still has a nice view but without the crowds. The location sits by the waterfront so you’re guaranteed a romantic view of the Marina Bay skyline. Find a quiet spot, put out your picnic mat, and bring in the new year.
Bay East Garden, 11 Rhu Cross, Singapore 437440
Everybody look at me:
We love a long dress for Singapore’s weather that doesn’t make us sweat in 5 minutes. Stunning from front to back — this MINKPINK frock shows how maxi dresses complement women of all sizes.
Wear it to: Mount Faber Peak
If you’re looking for some serenity but still appreciate the fireworks, Mount Faber Peak may just be the spot you’re looking for. This hilltop location is surrounded by lush forest and has a scenic view of the garden city. If you’re feeling peckish, pop into a restaurant like Dusk Restaurant & Bar or Arbora and welcome in the new year 100m above sea level.
