The festive season is coming up and although I love relaxing in my pajamas and watching Christmas movies on Netflix, I equally love getting dressed up and seeing the new year in. It’s almost time to say goodbye to 2019, and you should start 2020 with a bang – that means with an incredible outfit. What better way to see the year in, right?
Whether you’re celebrating the New Year with friends, family, heading outside or traveling, I have curated a wide range of outfits for every kind of New Year’s Eve Party. There’s a little something for everyone here, so enjoy!
Whether it’s a family gathering or a friend has requested a formal dress code, you need something sleek and sophisticated that will get you turning heads. Tailoring is the perfect way of injecting your personality all whilst remaining chic. I love the fit of this oversized blazer with tie waist and flowing pants. For a more demure event, you can always add a silk cami top.
I love this striking lamé suit from Dries Van Noten, the metallic touches make it festive season-ready and the masculine cut gives it that edge you need. You could then wear the jacket as a statement piece with your favorite white tee and jeans after New Year’s Eve! For a more affordable option, Topshop has a fabulous silvery grey crushed velvet suit for festive rock’n’roll vibes.
Are you the ultimate party girl? Are you planning to be in the club singing your lungs out and swigging champagne? Well, in that case, you need something truly spectacular! A sequin mini dress is the answer to all your prayers! It will make your legs go on for days and there are all sorts of cuts to flatter your figure.
We love this gorgeous rose gold Alexandre Vauthier sequin mini dress with a flattering waistline and asymmetric hem for a modern touch. The shoulder pads make you feel empowered and the plunging V neckline is perfect for layering jewelry! In a similar, asymmetric style, we have this stunning bronze number from Pretty Little Thing, it’s a show-stopping bodycon dress, again with a plunging neckline and covered in sequins!
House parties may be a little more chilled, but that doesn’t mean you can’t dress up for them! A velvet dress is perfect for the festive season, and it’s a luxurious fabric that does a lot for your figure! Whether it’s off the shoulder, skater or bodycon, velvet is the perfect party piece that will never go out of style.
I love this skater dress from Tularosa at Revolve, in a navy blue, it is timeless, and flatters all skin tones. The balloon sleeves and plunging V neckline give it a Bohemian chic vibe, perfect for pairing with flat ankle boots once the festive season has come to an end. For a sexier option, this one-shoulder dress in red crushed velvet is going to steal the show! Keep your accessories subtle and let the dress do the talking.
For a classy dinner party, a blazer dress mixes feminine cuts with masculine tailoring for the dreamiest concoction! You can go for elegant and timeless black or shake it up with bold statement shades to compliment your accessories – you can’t go wrong when making an impact!
We are dreaming of Lovers + Friends at Revolve’s hot pink blazer dress with cinched waist and shoulder pads for that retro touch. Keep your accessories subdued because this is a piece with a punch! Missguided have a similar option in the same shade for a fast fashion option!
If you’re lucky to be outside watching the fireworks, then you need to think about your outfit all whilst keeping warm. That doesn’t mean your style should be compromised! A sequin top and high waist tailored pants will make the perfect, comfy yet stylish party outfit – then just add your favorite black tailored coat for extra style points!
Alice + Olivia know how to create flattering pant shapes to flatter your legs and elongate them, I love this pair with sharp darting and figure-flattering high waist, which can be combined with this leopard-print sequin top for a bit of festive sparkle! You can get this dazzling look on a budget, with these incredible pants from Missguided and this black and gold bodysuit from Pretty Little Thing to add a bit of glam!
If you are celebrating New Year’s on the beach, then firstly a lot of people will be envying you! But that means you need a more beach-appropriate outfit! A plunging lightweight maxi in a feminine shade of dusty pink will make you feel elegant without you breaking out in a sweat.
For sunny weather and New Year celebrations, we recommend this strappy maxi dress from Reformation with its daring cut-out back. Make sure to get your wicker accessories out for exotic outfit inspiration! Boohoo has a flirty alternative with a plunging V neckline and frilly short sleeves. Definitely on our wishlist!
