Now that you may have settled on where you want to go for Old Year’s Night/New Year’s Eve, it is time to do the hardest thing: find an outfit. To make things a bit easier, we have compiled a style guide for both men and women, to provide some options on what you can wear for the night/morning.
Dresses are the preferred choice for ladies on Old Year’s Night, but choosing the right one can be quite the task. Usually, women like to go with the latest fashion trends, but if it does not flatter your body type, then don’t wear it. What may look good on everyone may not look good on you. Chose an outfit that you are comfortable in, because remember you are likely to be out and about and on your feet for a while.
- Little Black Dress
Simple and timelessly trendy. Black is usually a color of choice for Old Year’s.
- Red Lace Dress
Red is a color that grabs the attention of those around. If this is the effect you’re looking for, then this option is perfect for you. If red isn’t for you, then you can also choose another bright colored dress to avoid black color.
- One Shoulder Sequined Dress
Picture this dress against the backdrop of fireworks on Old Year’s Night. Sequined dresses tend to stand out from the crowd and come in a variety of styles: long, short, close or loose fitting.
- Navy Blue Strapless
Ideal for those who want to wear black, but still want to wear a nice dark color.
- Maxi Dress
Not everyone likes to wear short dresses on Old Year’s. If this is you, you can go for a longer and more formal option (as displayed in the image to the left).
Jumpsuits have become a nice fashion trend in recent times. They tend to be very comfortable and stylish, which is exactly the look you want on Old Year’s.
- Casual Glam
This simply involves dressing in a simple jeans with a nice top, complimented by some heels, or to avoid heels, ankle boots will work as well.
While women tend to be much more fashion conscious than men, it is appreciated that they too like to look fashionable and sexy on Old Year’s. The tips for men don’t differ significantly from women. Dress for the event and the venue where it will be held. The worst thing you could ever do is over or under-dress for an event (although being overdressed is better), so paying careful attention to the venue is key. Also, if you are spending your night with a lady (friend or otherwise) make sure that you know beforehand what she is wearing, so that you can complement her look and not look to underdressed beside her.
- The Classic Look
Choosing a well fitted white shirt, along with a nice pants are a timeless trend much like the little black dress for ladies. And truthfully, not much beats this look, as it will be ideal for most Old Year’s Night activities.
- A Suit
Suitable for those more formal occasions such as a romantic dinner. We don’t mean the usual tuxedo here, but a nice suit as displayed in the image.
- A Dress Shirt/Sweater with Jeans
This is a great choice, particularly if you will only be liming on the night and not visiting any parties or night clubs.
- Classic look with Jacket
For this, you can use a nice dress shirt with a nice pants (or jeans) and finish it off with a snug (but not too snug) jacket to add a touch of class to the look.
The middle ground between dressy and casual for those events that do not have a set dress code. Adorned with a nice jacket/blazer and you have a simple yet, sexy look.
- Black Tie
Full Tuxedo look. A three piece is a great choice here, fitting your dress shirt with a nice vest and jacket.
- Colors and Patterns
Has become fashionable in recent times, more and more men are wearing brighter colors with patterns. This isn’t a style on its own per se, but can be used to shake up the options above. For example, if you choose to wear a dark gray or light brown suit, you can wear a patterned rose red shirt underneath.
With these options, you cannot go wrong. Always keep in mind the event, the venue and the length of time you will be there (so you can be comfortable) so that you can ensure that you are perfectly outfitted for Old Year’s Night.
