From sparkles to denim, party wear to casual styles, we have covered it all to guarantee your most stylish outfit to date! But first, let’s get started with some simple dos and don’ts for New Year’s Eve:

what to wear on new year

  • Do be a little unconventional. It’s New Year’s Eve and so it is the perfect time to get out of your comfort zone and experiment with something that you’ve never tried before!
  • Do add some sparkle to your look. We predict that 2021 will be the year of sparkles and glitter. We can already see them everywhere: actresses, models, bloggers, our favorite youtube artists and even girls around us are wearing glitter on their eyes, on their lips, on their cheeks, everywhere! Want some inspiration? Check out this neon pink glitter makeup tutorial here:
  • Don’t forget to charge your phone fully before heading out (if you are going out, that is) as there is surely no quicker way to ruin your night than pulling out your phone to snap a picture and finding yourself on empty!
  • Don’t forget to keep a jacket or wrap on hand to keep yourself warm, especially if you’re planning to go to an outdoor party. Even if you’re going to a club, you never know for how long you’ll be standing in lines so it’s better to be fully prepared.
  • Last but not least, remember to have as much fun as you can since this night won’t be coming again for another year after this!

For an outfit that covers all the bases, we present you with our first totally stylish and super cozy option! This is a great NYE outfit and works for any occasion whether you are heading out or staying in. Opt for a shimmering white or lovely cream sweater and pair it up with some festive silver sequin pants. Cluster earrings and a low bun will tie the look together, giving you the best of all the worlds. Here are some more ideas on the Best Styles of Sweaters.

This look definitely comes with the added tip of dressing according to the weather! Ways you can make this clubbing outfit work for a chilly night on the town is adding layers and stockings for traveling back and forth… this outfit also works if you are hosting a party at home (and therefore, don’t need to brave the middle-of-winter weather) or if you live in the tropics or on an island. (Like me!)

A stylish (and practical) option for an NYE outfit that may include heading to the family home or going to dinner on a date is this one right here. We love that it incorporates chic and winter-ready pieces so that you can feel like a million bucks inside and out. Top a simple white turtleneck off with a faux fur vest and slip on your favorite mid-rise skinny jeans. Add booties and accessorize with stud earrings, a brand-name belt, and swipe on some red lipstick to tie it all together. Check out these ideas on How to Wear Fur Vest with Any Outfit.

Jazz up a little black dress by opting for one that comes with extra detailing (like this incredible lace back) and add a gold belt for added glam. Keep your accessories lowkey and opt for a more natural makeup look to let your outfit do all the shining.

↓ 18. Casual Maxi Dress for Staying-In on NYE

Not all of us are going to be cruising the town on NYE, so here is an option for you ladies who are staying in but still want to look put-together and cute. Give a billowy maxi dress a try and add a long pendant necklace. Sandals or espadrilles would make for great footwear for this look. Pro-tip: depending on the color of the dress you go with, adding a bold red lip will bring more of a festive feel to this ensemble.

Here is a glam look perfect for parties, an NYE date, or clubbing. It is a refreshing take on the sequined pants trend and will wow all the crowds as it isn’t your typical dress-look. Pair up some slim-fitting black sequined pants with a v-neck loose blouse, a red lip, and black heels. Tie it all together with a little gold and black clutch.

↓ 11. Cute Hairstyle for New Year’s Eve Party

A cute braided updo is darling and sweet and is a fun way to style your hair for an NYE event. The braided headband you see here is so simple that if you know how to braid, you can make this within five minutes. All you have to do is, part your hair in the center and then make a braid on both sides. Once you’re done, hold those braids from the bottom and bring them up towards the center of your head. Pin in place with bobby pins and pull a few pieces loose to frame your face. And voila! Hair sorted.

Go for a classic makeup look with winged eyeliner and a soft pink lip to tie together the sweet and feminine aspects of this look.
