NYE Outfit Ideas To Try Out This Year

1. The Velvet Suit

The Occasion: Hosting duties

If you’re hosting the festivities this year, chances are you’ll be running around entertaining for most of the night – which means you’ll need a somewhat practical (but no less party appropriate) outfit. Velvet is still on our trend radar, especially when it comes in the form of a beautifully tailored suit. Throw on a pair of kitten heels and you’re good to go as hottest host.

2. Glitter Ball

The Occasion: On-trend partywear

The biggest trend for party season is, of course, metallics. While your average party may require the odd sequin or glitter statement piece, it’s only right that you go all out for NYE. Glitter on glitter, rhinestone on rhinestone. A head-to-toe reflective outfit is definitely a fun head-turner, and can be brought to life by any combination of dress, co-ords, shoes and accessories.

3. The Satin Party Dress

The Occasion: ‘Wear it again (and again)’ party dressing

Can you ever go wrong with a party dress? We’d say not. For an extra shot of glimmer (without going full-on metalhead), slip into a slinky lil’ satin number. The versatility of a satin midi means that it can be dressed up with heels and accessories or pared back with a cosy knitted jumper and pumps (or trainers, if you fancy channelling TikTok’s wrong shoe theory). You can see our edit of the best party dresses for NYE here.

4. Extra Embellishment

The Occasion: Dancing the night away with friends

Maximalism never goes out of style when it comes to parties. If you want your NYE outfit packed with festive pomp, then up the ante with some extra embellishment. Think colourful beading, buttons, embroidery and even feathery cuffs – all of these can bring any dress from ‘casual’ to ‘party’ status, while breaking up the garment with some more texture. (Plus, these add-ons are really fun to play with.)

5. Elevated PJs

The Occasion: Home celebrations

For those who want to celebrate the arrival of NYE without dressing up dressing up, the answer is simple: pyjamas. Now, we’re not talking about the family Christmas PJs, but rather those silky sets that better resemble the loungewear of a golden age housewife rather than your typical nighttime attire. Team up your PJs with a matching pair of slippers, and you’re all set. Ultra-luxe low effort; what more do you need?

6. Sheer Joy

The Occasion: NYE date night

Need something a little sexier this year? Tap into one of the biggest fashion trends of the year: sheer dressing. Layering gauzy fabrics gives your look a cheeky ‘peek-a-boo’ dimension, while making sure you stay on trend (and covered up where you need to be). You can also up the elegance with embroidery, if the goal is NYE dinner reservations at a fancy restaurant.

7. Coat & Boots

The Occasion: Winter walks

Let’s face it: not all of us are party animals. Some people like to ring in the new year with a wholesome (and frosty) countryside walk, preferably with the family dog in tow. For this brand of NYE celebrations, outfit ideas call upon layers – think jumpers, scarves and jeans – topped off with a snazzy coat and a comfy pair of boots (style does not need comprise on comfort, after all). See out roundup of the best waterproof boots here.
