The Best Outfits for New Year's Eve

As we prepare to bid farewell to 2023, plans to welcome in the new year are being put in motion. From high-end glamour to understated elegance, discover a New Year's Eve outfit for every dress code.

The glamorous party

If your last night of the year is destined for the dancefloor, go down the path of extravagant embellishments and intricate sequins for a party-ready look. A sequin dress is an iconic choice for New Year’s Eve as it epitomises party mood dressing. Whether you choose a piece entirely adorned with light-catching sequins, or a classic design with a considered sprinkle of glitter, there are endless variations of the cocktail dress that promise to turn heads. Embrace a vintage aesthetic and style your dress with an oversized blazer and festive footwear. Achieve an alternative look by layering a cropped leather biker jacket over your ensemble and accessorise with a chainmail bag. For a more modest option with equal levels of high-octane shine, style a sequin top with trousers and heels.

The elegant night out

Make a captivating entrance at a New Year's Eve black tie event or soiree in a luxurious crystal-embellished gown. Channel Old Hollywood charm in an opulent fringe dress which swishes elegantly with every step or embrace extravagance with a showstopping gown adorned with artisanal embellishments and glistening sequins. Style your gown with stiletto heels and a sleek clutch bag for a decadent finish.

The laid-back venue

If you’re celebrating with your nearest and dearest at a local venue, curate a pared-back outfit with undeniable elegance. A skater or A-line dress is a great option as it creates a fluid silhouette, allowing for a relaxed fit that can be easily elevated with accessories. Whether you prefer a vibrant print or muted tone, style your chosen dress with boots and a leather blazer for the perfect smart-casual look.

The outdoor event

While celebrating in a bar or nightclub has long been a New Year’s Eve tradition, nothing can outshine a spectacular fireworks display to mark the countdown to the new year. If you're attending a fireworks show with family to welcome in the new year, ensure you stay warm and stylish in a timeless Italian wool coat. Choose a cashmere jumper for a luxurious feel and tie the look together with leather trousers and boots. Alternatively, layer your winter coat over a knitted maxi dress and wool tights for an effortlessly elegant outdoor ensemble.

The sophisticated dinner

If you prefer a more intimate venue and are celebrating the new year with a candle-lit dinner, choose a sleek tailored ensemble for your evening plans. A co-ordinating suit ensemble exudes the perfect balance between glamour and sophistication and can be styled with an embellished crop top for a touch of opulence, or a fitted high-neck jumper for a balanced look. A tailored jumpsuit also makes a flattering choice for an evening of festivities.

The night in

After weeks of indulgence, some may prefer to set the tone for the year ahead with a night of pampering and deep relaxation. If you are choosing home comforts this New Year’s Eve, a sumptuous cashmere or boucle jumper makes an excellent choice for luxury loungewear. Alternatively, layer a cosy shawl cardigan over your favourite jumper or pyjamas and embrace life’s simple pleasures.
