Getting dressed on New Year’s Eve isn’t the same as getting dressed on any other day; 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 satin to metallics to a healthy dose of sequins, we’ve got your New Year’s Eve outfit covered—no matter what your plans are.
For a formal party
If there’s ever a time to bring out a dress that’s going to make you feel like a million bucks, it’s New Year’s Eve. Opt for whatever LBD you have in your closet that makes you feel best, then make it more festive with sparkly accessories that will start your 2023 off with a bang.
For a dinner party
Getting a nice dinner for your New Year’s? Leather pants, a turtleneck, and silver details make for a chic combo to sit and sip down your cocktails in. The pop of silver against the black will make the look feel obviously festive, but without being too on the nose.
For a party at a friend’s house
A party at a friend’s still calls for dressing up, and a pop of Barbiecore pink will help you stand out from the sea of sequins that’ll take up the living room. Make the look monochrome with shoes and a bag in similar hues—but obviously adorned with a little something extra to make them festive for the occasion. Don’t have pink in your wardrobe? Don’t fret—any pop of color you own will deliver the same result.
For a night out with friends
If you’ll be dancing the night away when the clock strikes midnight, it’s time to bust out a look that you can move all night in. With a sexy corset top and your favorite trousers (bonus points for sequins) will make you feel as festive as possible, without needing to worry about the perils a dress would come with on the dance floor.
For a trip to a cabin
Traveling to a cozy cabin for your New Year’s? That calls for a cozy cable knit. Pair your favorite chunky, cropped cable-knit sweater with a pair of relaxed jeans and cozy-chic snow boots for a look that perfectly emulates your dreamy night. Cabincore, anyone?
For a fancy date night
A fancy date on New Year’s Eve calls for an outfit that’s a notch above what you’d wear on any old date. Layer a jumpsuit (or any black dress you have) over a button-up, then top it off with a belt for an outfit that’ll make everyone wonder, “who is she?“
For a cozy night at home
Sometimes, a cozy night at home for NYE is exactly what the doctor ordered. Ring your 2023 in with a pair of elevated sweats, cozy slippers, and a bottle (or three) of champagne.
