It’s an exciting time of year, ladies. The new year is drawing to a close, and a whole new year, not to mention a new decade, lies before us.
With tidings like these, many are celebrating and planning New Year’s Eve parties… and with the prospect of a momentous party comes all the questions: for starters, what does one wear to a New Year’s Eve party anyway?!
Well, rest assured, friend, because here at Outfit Trends, we have got you covered!
We will be looking at some fantastic NYE party outfits, specifically for teenage girls. (We also have a great article on the best valentine’s day dressing ideas for teen girls. Feel free to check it out!).
Here’s everything that I’ll cover today:
What to Wear on NYE?
We’ve already talked about the best holiday dressing style ideas for teenage girls but this time, we are going to be focusing on NYE.
NYE parties are a great opportunity to get totally glam and show off some glitzy, sparkly pieces. Whether you are attending a family gathering or a party with friends, there is something here for everyone!
Without further ado, let’s get started.
Some things to keep in mind:
- Sequins are a super popular choice for NYE parties. Don’t feel like you have to shy away from them.
- Cocktail dresses are the most common type of attire but you can also wear jeans, leggings, skirts, and other styles of dresses.
- If you are wearing sequins, don’t overdo it on the accessories. For a lot of our looks, you will see that the dress tends to take center stage and is complemented by a few strategic pieces of jewelry or other accessories.
- Feel free to go as glam as you like! NYE parties are the perfect time to get as glittery and glitzy as you please.
- As most NYE parties take place indoors, don’t stress about winterwear. Pick out your outfit and then layer up with coats, jackets, scarves, etc., for going to and from, but don’t feel like you have to sacrifice style for warmth.
- Heels are most girls’ favorite footwear for parties, but if you know you are going to be dancing, then maybe opting for a small heel or a pair of flats is the best option for you.

Full Glam Party Looks
21. Sequin Dress
Our first and most popular option is a fabulously glam sequined dress. They are fun and gorgeous and they definitely suit a New Year’s Eve party. For this look, add some big statement earrings. Hoops and dangling chandelier earrings are great choices. For footwear, heels or metallic pumps are the best way to visually lengthen your legs and keep you party-ready. Swipe on some red lipstick to complete the look.
20. Winter Outfit
Since New Year’s is smack in the middle of winter, chances are the weather is going to be, well, a little nippy. (Unless you live in a tropical area, of course). So dress accordingly. While you don’t have to sacrifice style for warmth, getting smart with how you choose to layer up is super important.
Because most NYE parties take place indoors, you can still rock a cocktail dress or a skirt with no worries. But getting to and from the party is where you need to get creative. Some options could be layering up with a coat, hat, and scarf.
Tall boots, leggings, tights, or a long coat are other ways you can keep your legs cozy and warm while traveling. Be sure to check out our amazing winter outfits for teens!
Makeup is also something to plan for when putting together your NYE party outfit. Go bold with lip colors like red and maroon or pink!
19. NYE Color Combo: Gold and Red
A fabulously festive color combination for NYE is gold and red. Here is a great example of that. Opt for metallic or patent leather heels to get some extra shine. (Matte heels are not as glam, but if you are going for a more understated look, then matte heels are definitely the way to go.) Pair them up with a sequined dress. We love the bold red heel and matching lip paired up with the gold sequined dress and gold clutch. (Opt for a smaller heel as a more age-appropriate option!)
18. Glam Top and Skinny Jeans
Not crazy about dresses? We got you, girl. You can still rock some major glamour with a top like this, especially when you accessorize correctly. A strapless little piece like this is incredibly flattering and highlights the waist.
Add some matching earrings, a glittery clutch, and top it off with some skinny black jeans. If you plan on dancing, you might choose to swap out some major heels like these for something a little more doable. Lastly, pop on a big statement ring.
To make this winter-ready, simply toss on a thick coat or add a little blazer to wear indoors if you think you’ll be chilly.

17. Collared Blouse and Skirt
A great option for teenage girls is an ensemble like this one. It perfectly balances a girlish sense of femininity with glamour and glitz. Plus, it’s classy. This billowy white blouse is perfect for NYE with a collar like this.
Tuck it into a figure-hugging skirt and add leggings or opaque tights to keep your legs warm and tie the look together. Add a purse and earrings and with a look like this, you can rock a pair of booties, flats, or open-toed heels.
16. Blue Cocktail Dress + How to Style Your Hair for NYE Party
Gold, silver, and white are popular NYE colors so whoever strays from the norm and opts for a bold color like this is sure to catch every eye in the room! We love this cobalt blue cocktail dress, especially when it’s worn with retro-style curls.
When it comes to hairstyles for NYE parties, the sky is the limit. However, avoiding a boring ponytail is a safe bet. Try straightening your hair, doing retro curls, or other glam up-dos. YouTube has endless hair tutorials so we definitely recommend checking out those!
15. Dressy Gold-and-Black Outfit
As a teenage girl, people will be extremely impressed by your sense of style if you don a blazer. It’s a very “grownup” piece that can be worn with pretty much everything and looks great on any body type. Pair yours with a gold sequined dress and pearly cluster earrings.
14. Classic Sequined Mini Dress
By now, you have seen an array of dress options for your NYE party. If you are still stressing, consider this sequined dress. You don’t even need to accessorize. Pop on some heels or booties and you are good to go.
13. Mesmerizing Sea-Green Mini Dress
Here is another simple but totally gorgeous idea for an NYE party look. With a dress as glam and show-stopping as this, you don’t have to go crazy with accessories.
Let your dress do all the talking and simply complement it with some matte black heels and a simple pair of earrings. Do you love the idea of colorful hair? Check out these Purple Haircolor and Hairstyles!
12. Ballerina Top-Knot and Dress
We love the simple elegance of this look. Opt for some pop-of-color lipstick and simple heels to let the dress take center-stage. Check out these 20 Cute Outfits with Top Bun Hairstyle to Compliment Style.
11. Glam Makeup and Blue Dress
Smokey eyes and winged eyeliner is a glam option for New Year’s Eve. You can also add a touch of glitter to get even more glitzy. This is the perfect opportunity to go as bold and as daring as you like without worrying about overdoing it. So have fun with it and let your inner beauty guru roar!
10. No Sequins: Velvet Dress and Tights
Now that you have seen every possible variation of the sequined dress, let’s look at some other ideas. This velvet dress is just as glam and fabulous as a sequined number, but it has its own charm that competes with the best of them. Pair this style dress with tights to get the best effect.
Simpler but Stylish Options
9. Monochrome NYE Party Outfit for College Girls
Here is a slightly more mature look for the older teen girl or college girl. It’s all about the blouse and blazer combo with this outfit. Stick to black, white, and silver for a monochrome ensemble perfect for a snowy NYE event. Plus, here’s our guide on Rainy Day Outfits Ideas.
8. Casual-Chic Outfit for NYE
If you are a jeans-loving girl, this is the outfit for you. The trick is keeping it chic and glitzy with your other pieces to keep the jeans from looking too casual. This gold top is a great example and is paired with some standout black heels.
7. Silver Sequins and Jeans for a Classic NYE Look
This outfit works for women of all ages. It’s a classic little ensemble that takes little guesswork. If you like the look of it, why not give it a shot?
Pair a silver sequined top with your favorite black skinny jeans. Accessorize with silver earrings and black heels. Or, you can swap out the heels for flats or mules for a more comfortable, less dressy alternative.
6. Collared Dress for Fashionistas
If you love to try new things and pushing the envelope when it comes to your fashion choices, consider this look. This bold striped dress is a total eye-catcher. Pair it with some studded flats and a clutch to tie the look together.
5. Gorgeous All-Black Ensemble
This dress and skirt combo is super easy to throw together but also very stylish. Accessorize with a clutch and patent leather heels.
4. Simple, Elegant NYE Party Outfit
Not all of us are enamored with the cocktail-dress-and-stiletto combos and that is totally okay. In fact, a look like this is a welcome refreshment after all the glittery sequins!
This is a classy monochrome outfit that works for girls of all ages. Pair a turtleneck thermal with a cool gray midi skirt and handbag.
To retain some of the glitzy sparkly of a typical NYE outfit, opt for metallic silver flats to tie the whole look together.
3. Tie-Dress & Clear Sandals
We love the flowy material on this dress and how a simple white sash cinches the waist, which is incredibly flattering for the figure. Pair with clear sandals to visually lengthen the legs.
2. Casual-Chic Jeans & Top
Because sequins and dresses aren’t for everyone, here is a gorgeous alternative. Rock your favorite high-waisted jeans with a chain belt to cinch the waist. A sheer long-sleeved top worn over a tank is chic and understated. With this outfit, you can wear heels or flats. Accessorize with a purse: points if you get a strap to match your belt!
1. Bodysuit and Patterned Skirt
For our final look, here is a gorgeous look that makes use of a super practical item: the bodysuit. If you love tucking in your tops but struggle with them getting loose and pulled out of place (something that will definitely happen at a party with all the fun and dancing!) then bodysuits sure come in handy.
Get yourself a black turtleneck version and pair it up with an eye-catching print miniskirt. Knee-high boots pull the look together, as well as the hairpiece and the bold red lip. This is a great option for girls of all ages.
