3 Easy & Elegant New Year’s Eve Outfit Ideas


This is it. We have come to the end of 2014 and if you have plans of welcoming 2015 in style, I’m here to share with you some easy and elegant New Year’s Eve outfit ideas! New Year’s celebrations are usually a wonderful excuse to splurge on some fancy clothes and get all dolled up.

Get Sparkly


Sequins and sparkles may seem cliché for the holidays but they’re especially made for festive seasons such as this. Of course, you can wear sequins all year round but they seem to have a more special sentiment during the holidays, don’t you think?


This is also the season when you can find them the most in the stores. You will see sequined tops, dresses, leggings, and skirts pretty much everywhere – if they have not yet sold out.


Here’s a tip: If you want to go sparkly all the way, wear a fully sequined dress. You can find some affordable ones at Forever 21, Charlotte Russe, and Deb Shops. If you just want a hint of sparkles, go with a sparkly top. You can go with a sequined top or one with long sleeves and sequin embellishments. If you want a little bit more than a hint but still not going overboard with it, try sequin leggings or a skirt. BCBGeneration has an awesome pair called Shelby.

If you’re not feeling the sparkles, pull out your good old plain black maxi dress from your closet or buy a new one. Whatever fancies you. One with a gold plate belt is ideal and you can find it at H&M. It has a basic solid color, but there are several ways you can glam it up:

  1. Top it off with colored cobalt shoes. Wear a simple collar necklace for a minimal neckline.
  2. Go with the classic black and lace pumps and an embellished necklace.
  3. Try nude pumps but draw the attention toward your neckline by wearing a statement necklace.

Go with Metallics

If sparkles aren’t your thing and the idea of a black maxi dress doesn’t necessarily thrill you, here are some metallic New Year’s Eve outfit ideas. They aren’t necessarily as loud as sequins but still festive for the occasion.

Faux leather leggings and a ruffled blouse are the main pieces. Wear a fringe jacket with the metallics as the accessories. I personally love this look. The black, silver and red go well together as a party look.

Another option is to match your look with a bronze metallic cropped jacket. I love the bronze and gray pumps as well as the statement bib necklace. I love the semi-tailored look but if you prefer the flirty vibe, go with the fringe jacket instead.

Hope these New Year’s Eve outfit ideas inspired you to put together your own version for any upcoming holiday festivities. Have a happy 2015 and stay safe!
