10 New Year’s Eve Outfit Ideas

Summer fashion

Dressing up is a big part of celebrating New Year’s Eve, so it makes sense that outfit planning begins now for those looking to go out in the cutest, sassiest and even sexiest outfits possible. Take advantage of all those holiday sales, and use this list to scoop up your look for December 31st! Choose a length and fit that makes you look and feel your best, and feel free to go bold. After all, there aren’t many occasions when you can get away with going all out.

1. Strappy LBD from IndiGirl

A wardrobe staple that will never let you down, the timeless, versatile and universally flattering little black dress has a lot going for it. Opt for this one with skimpy straps to give a peek of skin. A sultry pop of red to dress it up is optional, but highly recommended.

2. Shimmering Skirt with Side Slit from UUZONE

This sassy golden slit skirt is such a great statement piece, and I especially love the way it flatters the curves. Keep the rest of the ensemble simple – think monochrome blouse, sheer tights and heels – to focus on the skirt’s gilded glory! Add interest and warmth with a leather jacket.

3. Red Wrap-Style Bodycon Dress from chuu

If you wish to turn heads and start the New Year off boldly, cherry red is your color. This sultry wrap dress doesn’t call for too many accessories. A sleek box clutch, taupe heels and drop earrings should suffice.

4. Rib-Knit Bodycon Dress from migunstyle

This one is for the ladies who always get cold – a curve-hugging, long-sleeve mini dress in pretty cobalt blue. The turtleneck helps you to keep warm, while the short hemline makes the dress a fantastic companion to over-the-knee boots. Like I said, go all out!

5. Velvet Lace Dress from Chlo.D.Manon

For special occasions, what’s sexier than a lace dress? But if it’s freezing, you’ll want to be realistic. Try giving the cute lace dress a full winter makeover with an endearing velvet fix. Throw this lavishly textured number over tights and matching booties. Yes, I’m talking about velvet boots here!

6. Glittering Sweater from INSTYLEFIT

The glittering sweater is the perfect top for the holiday season – it looks festive and keeps you from getting chilly on crisp nights. It’s also foolproof, comfy and fuss-free. Go black-on-black with a tight leather mini skirt, or wear wetlook pants for a sports-luxe look.

7. Furry Top from chuu

Do we dress for warmth? This is a common and major dilemma throughout the winter months. NYE is no occasion to sacrifice comfort for fashion, so cover up in your furriest top and pair with skinny jeans to balance out the voluminous fit. If you’d like to make more of a statement, consider topping off the combo with (faux) python booties!

8. Polka Dot Mermaid Skirt from Dabuwawa

Nothing says retro, party-ready prettiness like polka dots. This mermaid midi is begging to be teamed with fine knitwear and sleek shoes (barely-there heel sandals are highly recommended). You can even defy the norm and go dots-on-dots with a top boasting small polka dots.

9. Skinny-Heel Strap Sandals from chuu

The subtly frayed denim texture of these barely-there heels are the perfect balance between sexy and casual. Nothing highlights an outfit like shoes, and this cute pair should be an ideal pick if you’re starting in the afternoon and partying into the night.

10. Block Heel Bow Booties from Parkwalker

If I could only choose one type of footwear for the colder months, it would probably be the go-with-everything ankle boots. This pair will dress up anything thanks to its clean silhouette and cute bow embellishment. Comfortable to wear without scrimping on style, it’s the perfect pair for those dreaded of hobbling home in agonizing party shoes.
