10 Tips for NYE Dressing

If you simply can’t wait to kiss this year goodbye and celebrate the beginning of 2020, you certainly aren’t the only one! It seems that everyone adores the holiday season, so keep on reading if you need help figuring out what to wear for the upcoming New Year’s Eve party. Just check out our ten style tips and enjoy!

Feel free to opt for sequins…

Sequins are at the top of our list for a good reason, which means that you won’t make a mistake if you decide to pull them off at the upcoming New Year’s Eve party. The best thing about them is the fact that you can wear them however you like. If head-to-toe sequin outfits aren’t your cup of tea, just opt for a statement piece that features sequins instead, keep the rest of the outfit monochromatic, and you’ll do a great job! 

… But wear them in differently than usual

However, if you love sequins but you want to wear them in a different and unexpected way, we highly suggest opting for a garment such as cool pants that are completely covered in sparkly sequins. As for the style, we must say that slouchy pants that remind boyfriend jeans in their shape are a perfect choice. These will look absolutely flawless on every body type, and all you have to do is to match them with a monochromatic T-shirt and a pair of classic heels. As simple as that!

… Or be a queen of velvet

On the other hand, if sequins aren’t your thing and you prefer to wear richer, more luxurious fabrics, we have to say that velvet will do the trick for you. A stunning wrap dress made from velvet is one of the most powerful ways to make a statement, so don’t wait any longer and find your perfect piece. As for the preferred color palette, we recommend a festive one that includes shades like bright red, deep green, and sophisticated gold. You won’t go wrong whichever you opt for!

Wearing satin is also a good idea

Even though lightweight fabrics such as satin are often linked to summer, you must know that satin actually is one of the most glamorous picks for winter as well. For example, a satin slip midi dress with a cowl neckline, low back, and a high-low hem feature will do wonders for your NYE outfit, so check out such gorgeous party dresses as soon as possible. The only thing left is to put on your favorite strappy sandals, add a tailored blazer for a more elegant look, and voila – you’re all done!

Don’t be afraid to wear a power suit

If you think that the end of this year is the perfect time to make some changes to your personal style, we reckon that wearing a power suit is the right thing for you. This is one of the biggest trends in the fashion industry these days, and the key to success lies in wearing a jacket and trousers that are made from the same fabric, in the same color. The great thing about power suits is the fact that wearing a shirt underneath the jacket isn’t obligatory, so bear that in mind as well!

Accessorize like a true fashionista

No party outfit can be complete without accessories, so make sure to master the art of accessorizing before the big party. This is particularly true if you want to wear sequins, as mixing these with bold, over-the-top jewelry can seem like too much. Instead, opt for delicate pieces that will complement the entire outfit without stealing the show!

Wearing white on New Year’s Eve? Why not!

Even though it probably sounds odd, you should know that wearing white on NYE is a great way to look glamorous and avoid wearing sequins for the third year in a row. After all, this color symbolizes peace, prosperity, and new beginnings, which is exactly what makes it perfect for New Year’s Eve, right? A white maxi dress with silver accessories and footwear will do the trick, without a shadow of a doubt!

Choose stylish yet comfy footwear

Yes, we know that those sky-high heels can make you look slimmer and boost your confidence, but you know what? These are likely to pinch your feet and make you feel excruciating pain within the first couple of hours, which is why you should opt for trendy shoes with block heel. These are far comfier and very stylish at the same time, don’t forget that!

A tiny belt does wonders for your figure

If you’re one of those ladies who love to accentuate their hourglass figure, you should know that a tiny belt is exactly what you’re looking for! For example, if you’re going for a silk dress and a tailored jacket, just add a belt and emphasize your waist even more. The same goes for any other dress or a jumpsuit, so grab a cute belt and spice up your NYE outfit!

Pay attention to your makeup look, too

Needless to say, your makeup look should perfectly match the overall aesthetics of your clothing combo, but you know what? You won’t make a mistake with red lipstick and black winged eyeliner, so go for this timeless combo and you’ll see what we were talking about. Red lips simply scream glamour and elegance, so incorporate them into your New Year’s Eve look and you’ll love the outcome!


As you can tell, there are so many things you should bear in mind while picking your perfect clothing combo for the upcoming NYE party, and these ten are the most important ones out there. So, if you want to look your best as this year comes to an end, just stick to our guide and you’ll make it happen! Happy holidays!
