I truly can’t believe I’m saying this – but it’s officially time to start thinking about New Year’s Eve. I KNOW. WHAT IS HAPPENING?! Of course, it’s always tricky figuring out how to ring in each new year, but honestly, it can be hard to figure out what to wear, too! NYE outfits are so dependent on what you’re actually doing to celebrate, and if you live somewhere like Chicago, you also have to consider what’s practical for the weather 😉 So in addition to the collage above, I’ve included some more options below – and after that, you can scroll through 3 different looks for 3 different types of celebrations. Happy New Year!
New Year’s Eve Outfit Ideas for a Cocktail Party
Dress: Reformation (Mine is from a few years ago, but I linked a VERY similar version! Runs TTS – I’m wearing a regular size 2.) | Earrings: c/o Kendra Scott | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff (I’ve had this bag for YEARS and it’s still one of my favorites!) I Heels: Calvin Klein (These are my go-to black pumps – such good quality for only $100!)
So you’re going to a cocktail party on New Year’s and you want to look festive and fun… but you also don’t want to buy something solely for this party. I feel ya. For this type of New Year’s, I say go for something that you feel GREAT in. That way, you can celebrate New Year’s in it, but you’ll also reach for it whenever you have a winter wedding or gala event to go to! I wore this dress to my friend’s wedding and I’d totally wear it again to a New Year’s soiree!
New Year’s Eve Outfit Ideas For a House Party or Casual Drinks
In this scenario, your friends are having some people over to their home or you’re meeting a few friends for dinner or at a bar that DEFINITELY doesn’t have a wristband deal ? You want to feel fun… but not toooo extra. Maybe there’s an open back or some fun sequins, but you can still wear your favorite jeans and feel comfortable. If this is you, I apologize that my top is old – but I linked a bunch of other great tops at the top of this post!
New Year’s Eve Outfit Ideas For A Night On The Town
Dress: BB Dakota (This dress is old but I love this star print dress and this star print maxi!) | Faux Fur Coat: c/o Talbots (This is also old, but I looove this longer faux fur coat!) | Tights: Sheertex (They say that these are unbreakable, and I am SO impressed so far. I always rip my tights within the first few wears and these are still going strong. Love!) | Booties: similar here
Don’t feel like staying in this year? This section is for the people going to a River North bar or a fun NYE concert – or you just want to dress up because when else do we get to do that?! I’m a sucker for sequins, so I feel you on that!
