7 New Years Outfit Ideas

If there’s one night of the year you should get glammed up, it’s New Year’s Eve. This year I’ll likely be going to dinner at PF Changs with my parents (our tradition for the past two years), followed by cocktails at home while watching the ball drop on TV. Yes, yes. I’ve actually developed a taste for cocktails recently! Can you believe it? My mom and I have been trying out different kinds just for fun and turns out I’m a “rum girl,” haha! I’ve never been much of a drinker before, but who knows. Now that I know what I like, maybe I’ll go crazy and start 2017 with my first hangover?

Kiddddinnnnnnnnnnnng.

But really though. Should I? 😉

If you’re not like me and actually plan on going out and doing something FUN on New Year’s, you’re in for a treat! It’s no secret that putting together the perfect New Year’s party outfit can be tricky. Sequins or no sequins? Heels or flats?

Since some NYE shin-digs are more casual, while others are more fancy, I’m giving you a few options for both. Here are 7 chic ideas to inspire your 2017 New Year’s outfit!

Now go on and ring in the New Year lookin’ FINE girl!

1. Classy & Glam

A gold halter top paired with flowy black culottes create a classy and glamorous look that’s perfect for an upscale New Year’s party. With a halter top, I suggest wearing hair up to show off your beautiful neck and shoulders, and then accenting them with long earrings and a dust of highlighter. The bow tie on the pants will give your waist definition, while a blue velvet clutch livens up the entire outfit. And come on, how fun are these sandals with the gold heel?! So perfect for New Year’s!

2. Sexy Trench Coat

I just love this blue silk trench coat from Nine Muses Collection. With a lightweight trench coat like this one, you could do something unexpected on New Year’s and wear it as a dress! If you’re a risk-taking kinda gal, amp up the sex appeal by leaving the deep-v neck as is and layering a few necklaces. Show off long legs in strappy stilettos, or go with tights and booties if you need to stay warm!

Sequin Blazer

Ok, I think this outfit is my favorite of them all! I love a good flare leg pant, especially in a soft black velvet and paired with pointy suede booties. A black and gold cold-shoulder top gives off a subtle shimmer, while a black sequin jacket adds that radiant New Year’s touch! Sparkling accessories like a crystal pendant, gold clutch, and rhinestone earrings tie the look together. Oh and you can’t forget a glam red lip!

The Mini Dress

If you’re going to be dancing the night away at a bar or club on New Year’s, then a fitted mini dress is the way to go! This red v-neck satin dress with sheer sleeves from Nine Muses Collection is so dang flattering. And it even has pockets. LOVE! 🙂 Make the dress a bit more edgy and party appropriate with tough leather boots and an interesting choker. Stash your essentials in a clutch that doubles as a crossbody, throw your hair in a half-up topknot, and you’re out the door in no time!

Little Gold Slip

OMG this outfit is so much fun! Andrea (the photographer) and I actually collaborated on the styling of this one and I love it so much. This gold slip dress from Strut in Dallas screams New Years. But since it’s a little on the short side, layering it over a long-sleeve turtleneck keeps it elegant! I don’t know about you, but I think the sheerness of the top, the light on the dress, and the texture of the fishnet tights make for a really cool look. To elongate the legs, slip into a pair of sexy slim booties. You’ll be starting the New Year with all eyes on YOU girl!

Bomber Jacket

Plan on spending New Year’s Eve at a chill house party this year? Bomber jackets are super on trend right now, and they’re perfect for layering over a statement tee for a casual New Years look. If you’re feeling a little flirty and wishing for that special New Year’s kiss, this tee should give him the hint. Haha 😉 And since skirts can be uncomfortable when hangin’ out on the couch, opt for relaxed fitting distressed denim instead!

Seeing Stars

C’mon, how adorable is this sweatshirt?! This sweatshirt is another option for a more low-key New Year’s celebration, because what could be more New Year’s than stars on your sleeve?! Sweatshirts are super versatile because they can be elevated with accessories. Think sparkly silver bangles, a metallic bag, or perhaps a scarf made of the New Year’s decor? 😉 If it were me, I’d let the sweatshirt standout by wearing it with some skinnes and cool booties. Quick, easy, and ready to party!
