New Year’s Eve and all its countdown-counting, confetti-tossing, glass-clinking glory is almost here! Whether you’re going out or staying in, read on for inspiration on what to wear for the last night of 2015.
DINNER PARTY WITH FRIENDS
For a get-together at your friend’s home, you want to show your everyday personal style, bumped up a notch. An easy way to pull this off is by adding one special holiday accessory to basics already in your closet. Spice up dark denim skinny jeans and a striped long-sleeved boat-neck top with a jewel-encrusted statement necklace. Slip on an off-the-shoulder tunic and heeled ankle boots with your favorite black leggings. Drape a scarf with a glimmer of metallic weave over a simple sweater dress. For a really stand-out look, pair a worn-in graphic tee or your go-to chambray shirt with festive bottoms—think sequined pencil skirt, brocade cigarette pants or tulle tea-length skirt.
NIGHT ON THE TOWN
A little black dress is par for the course at a fancy restaurant or hotel party. You can also count on red and silver to be popular runner-ups. Stand out from the crowd by rocking a frock in an offbeat color such as turquoise, fuchsia or rose gold. A jumpsuit in a flowy fabric or a chic tuxedo with a shimmery top underneath also makes for a super-sophisticated look. It’s New Year’s Eve, so a touch of drama is always appropriate, whether that translates to a dress with a plunging back, glittery earrings or a glam updo.
FAMILY MOVIE NIGHT
If you want to steer clear of pricey valet parking and crazy crowds, movie night at home with your nearest and dearest sounds like just the ticket. That means you get to forgo the uncomfy high heels and dreaded strapless bra and suit up in your coziest gear. Go for a matching flannel pajama set or an oversized sweatshirt and leggings. Top it off with a cozy fleece robe and faux fur-lined slippers or sweater knit slipper socks. All that’s left to do now is pop the popcorn and press play!
