New Years Eve Outfit Ideas

I can’t believe we’re already halfway though December! And as such, it’s about that time to start thinking about your New Years Eve plans and figuring out what your night’s going to look like. For those of you who already know you’re going to end up at some sort of party (versus a laid back event), I’ve got a few new years eve outfit ideas to help you start thinking of options.

…and speaking of party pants, here are a few more fun options to jazz up your “bottoms” for NYE – whether you do faux leather leggings, a midi skirt or go all out with the sequin pants, you’ll for sure be dressed to impress in any of these options!

different ways to make a statement with your skirt or pants for new years

ONE // TWO // THREE (also see this blog post) // FOUR (see outfit below + this blog post) // FIVE

OR if you’re wanting to keep things relatively low-key, you could always go with your favorite little black dress. It would be super easy to snazz it up with a pop of color on your lips or some statement earrings….or a fun bright shoe maybe?!

A statement skirt is a fun and different option to consider for your new years eve outfit this year. You could go with sequins or a fun print to mix things up. OR it would also be cute and festive to wear a leather skirt – I love pairing leather and feathers (i.e., a leather pencil or mini skirt and a white feather top (like this one or this one for $98)?! omg so cute and the perfect mix of feminine and edge).

…and here are a few more dress options for you if you’re wanting to go that route! I love the lace options (esp. No. 1 and 4!) and you can’t go wrong with No. 5 and those classic sequins!



So far I’ve talked about sprucing up just about every part of your new years eve outfit. We’ve covered party pants, statement skirts, a little black dress, and statement dresses. Additionally, you could go with a fun and funky (statement) top if you’d rather wear jeans or black pants on bottom (or faux leather pants like so…).

I love this fringe bottom top from J. Crew, but I’m so sad to say that it’s sold out (the leggings are still fair game though and they’re $28!). For those of you still wanting this sort of look, I’ve rounded up some similar statement-worthy tops for YOU below.
