Decided on your New Year’s Eve plans yet? Or maybe you’re still recovering from post-holiday depression. Aside from what you’re going to do, you also have to think about what you’re going to wear. Let’s be real, the wardrobe is probably more important than the plans themselves. Here’s the ultimate guide to dressing for this NYE for any celebration, high-key or low-key.
1. Femme Fatale
Heading to a party this New Year’s Eve? Or maybe you’re hitting the town with your girl gang. Either way, you know you have to serve a killer look. Unfortunately for everyone, NYE is likely to be chilly and possibly snowy. Honestly, nothing is worse than trying to get crunk while avoiding frostbite. Go for your sexiest, skin-tight high-waisted jeans (preferably in black). Throw on a scandalous bodysuit like this low neckline, velvet one from Topshop. These two are a perfect pair because they keep you covered but still give you opportunity to show off a little. For an outer layer, go for a luxe coat like this fur one. Mixing textures adds a little air of luxury to your entire look and honestly makes you feel like a million bucks. As far as accessories go, opt for simple jewelry – or skip that category altogether. Crossbody bags of any variety are a must and even though you love that clutch that you’ve been dying to use, we all know that’s impractical for a night out. For extra oomph go for a pair of heels like these faux snakeskin ones and swipe on some vampy red lips.
So you’ve decided to skip the party (I don’t blame you). Maybe you’ve decided to do something else for your NYE festivities. If you plan on leaving your house but the dress code is ‘casual’, go for something like this. A black turtleneck, obviously, because that’s an essential to every good outfit and a pair of boyfriend jeans (or girlfriend jeans, if that’s more up your alley). Throw on a nice wool coat for warmth and a snazzy, but low-key pair of shoes like these metallic, platform oxfords. Add a little bit of interest with a fun bag, because you may not be celebrating but you can still partake in the fun fashion. For finishing touches, stick with the basics, you’re not trying to impress anyone but yourself.
3. Cool Cat
Cool cat…more like house cat. You’ve decided to skip NYE parties entirely and are almost on the verge of boycotting the holiday altogether. This look is an homage to everyone out there who is probably just going to chill with a close friend or two and binge watch Broad City instead of watching the ball drop. Go for your most loved pair of joggers and pair that baby with a comfy sweater. If there’s any possibility at all that you’ll leave the house (maybe for a midnight snack), go for a pair of sneakers and a leather jacket to top off the look. If you haven’t ditched makeup for the evening, keep it simple, who knows if you’ll end up posting a last minute #Goodbye2015 selfie!
