Getting dressed on New Year’s Eve isn’t like getting dressed on any other day of the year; it’s the outfit of all outfits, the singular most important look of the year.
Even if you don’t consider yourself a sucker for sparkles or if you generally avoid metallics like the plague, New Year’s Eve is the day of the year you can throw all of your usual style rules out the window. It’s a time to get dressed up and celebrate one year coming to an end and a new one beginning, and you don’t want to do that in any old top or jeans.
Whether you want to feel as glam as possible or are looking for a look that will feel both cozy and festive, you should start the new year feeling your absolute best. From velvet to metallics to a little bit of sequins, we’ve got your New Year’s Eve outfit covered—no matter what your plans are.
