15 New Year’s Eve Outfit Ideas
We know how it is – New Year’s Even is a really big deal. Everyone gets dress up, everyone wants to party, and when everyone is in the party mood, out comes the party outfits! If you’re struggling to think of a great outfit idea for this year’s celebrations, don’t worry. We’ve done the hard work so you don’t have to, and here are 15 New Year’s Eve outfit ideas:
1. Burgundy Velvet Dress
Velvet is a big trend right now, and red / burgundy is a great colour for Christmas. So … when you think about it, this burgundy velvet dress is perfect for the occasion.
It’s a wonderfully tailored dress, and that’s great for when you want something to nip and tuck. Just remember to grab a shawl or a throw – it might get chilly watching the fireworks outside in the cold!
2. Sequin Playsuit
Wow! What a beautiful playsuit! Sequins were made for New Year. They go together much like New Year and glitter goes together. And with these sequins, it’ll look like you’re wearing glitter, which instantly makes it a winner for us.
If you’re worried about the cold, team it with tights. You could also consider throwing it on with some thigh-high boots for a real kick-ass look, and we can’t help but think a faux-fur jacket over the top would go pretty well too.
3. Pink Sequin Jumpsuit
For then the playsuit is too chilly, how about the pink sequin jumpsuit? We’re a little bit in love with this sparkly little number. In fact, there’s no “little bit” about it. We’re wholeheartedly obsessed.
When you wear nude shoes, particularly heeled and pointed shoes, it automatically makes your legs look longer, which is why these nude beauties go so well with this sassy little jumpsuit. We think it’s damn fabulous!
4. Little Black Dress
You can’t really go wrong with a LBD – little black dress – and it’s a great one to wear for the cold too. Team with tights and pretty shoes, or even boots, and you have a look that you could quite easily wear to the office during the day.
Glam things up with sparkly accessories for the evening, and you have one of the most perfect New Years Even outfit ideas.
5. Green Sequin Dress
And for when a little black dress just won’t do the trick, how about a little green dress? A little green sequin dress to be precise?
And don’t worry, if green isn’t your colour, we’ve seen this in red, blue, gold, silver, and a whole host of other colours, all of which can still be worn with tights and heels, just like you can see here.
6. Velvet Top + Midi Skirt
We told you that velvet was a big deal, and if you feel like showing off what mama gave you, how about this sassy little number? It’s definitely sexy, and that beautiful midi skirt really gives you a silhouette to be proud of.
An pencil-style skirt like the one is so flattering for a wide range of body shapes and types. You could even team it with a body or a sweater if you wanted something a tad warmer.
7. Sequin Bottoms
For when you’re not really feeling the dress vibe, how about some sequin trousers instead? There’s something very jazzy about these, and in case you were wondering how you would wear them, this look gives you a very classic way.
Team a crisp white mens shirt with an oversized black bow tie, and you have a masculine yet feminine look that’s just perfect for the New Year festivities. As far as New Year’s Eve outfit ideas go, this one is so sparkly, we couldn’t possibly ignore it.
8. Metallic Red Dress
Do you remember when we said you could get that green sequin dress in a wife range of colours and shades? Well … Ta Dah!
Red is such a classically festively colour, perfect for Christmas, New Year, any time of the year in fact. A dress like this would be an investment – it’s not the kind of dress you’ll only wear once. We bet you’ll be dying for any old excuse to wear it, New Year or no New Year.
9. Black & Gold
Proud of your cleavage? If you’ve got a killer one, why not show it off? This black and gold dress is just the right amount of sassy-sexy, but not too much. You could still get away with wearing this sultry number when the family are still about.
Once again, a nude shoe has been added to lengthen and elongate those legs, but this time, a gold embellished shoe has been chosen. We think it’s the perfect choice!
10. Navy Blue Velvet Dress
Velvet can be quite hard to wear, especially if you’ve never given the fabric a shot before. But it’s such a luxurious material, even Princess Diana was said to be a big fan, that we couldn’t possibly go without having a little mention for this blue beauty.
If you’re worried about wearing velvet for the first time, opt for a darker shade. It’ll be easier to wear than something really bright, bold and in-your-face.
11. Dark Green Outfit + Red Lips
We’re back to the playsuit again, which can only mean one thing – they’re very much in trend. Again, this can be quite a daunting move if you’ve never braved one before, but pairing it with tights can help you to feel less self conscious.
Another great tip for when you’ve got your legs out is to always wear a heel, even if it is only a little one. It’ll make your legs seem longer, elongated, and more muscly.
12. Black & Gold Sequin Dress
Of course, when you’re wearing a short dress, you can’t forget about the important details … such as your legs. You’ll need to prepare in advance if you’re going for an outfit like this. It’s not like you’ll be able to rush into the tanning salon last minute on New Year’s Even if your legs are much whiter than you’d like.
Get your stuff ready early enough, and you won’t have any problems. The last thing you’ll want is to put your dress on NYE and it not fit … Just try, prepare, and get ready before the big day.
13. Embellished Playsuit
When you’re wearing something as bright and shiny as this embellished playsuit, you may find that you’ll need to be a tad more conservative with your jewellery choices.
Too much bling surrounding this look can cheapen it, so try to go for fine pieces that won’t take too much attention from the outfit itself.
14. Gold Sequin Dress
A wrap-around dress is perfect for a number of occasions – for when you’re not feeling your best, for when you’ve just had a baby, for when you’re trying to lose those post-Christmas pounds …
It’s a flattering dress-type, and one that easily be made bigger or smaller, making it perfect for maternity, or just after. Plus … it’s beautiful. Don’t you think?
15. Velvet Jumpsuit
That 70’s kick flare style is back again, but when you take a peek at this blue velvet jumpsuit, we’re sure you won’t be complaining.
Elegant and simple, it’s quite daring in the cleavage department, but if you’re feeling self-conscious, you could always throw on a lacy bandeau bra. We’re a little in love with this one – how about you? (Plus it’ll be warmer than a legs-out playsuit!)
Getting your New Year’s Eve outfits ideas together early enough is the key to having a successful night. The earlier you’re prepared, the earlier you can rectify any problems, such as the wrong footwear, for example, or even the wrong underwear. With looks like these, the correct base is important, and that means getting the right undies!
We hope you have a great New Year! And we can’t wait to see what you lovelies chose to wear for the occasion!
