Discover my cute black party outfit for new year party. Get loads of ideas on what to wear on new years eve, and tips on how to accessorize your outfit!
New year’s eve is the time to dress up. Even if you like it plain and simple all year long, the new year’s eve party brings an excuse to pick up that mascara and put on those high heels! And with that comes the excitement of where to go, who to invite and more importantly, what to wear on new years eve.
What to Wear on New Years Eve
Depending on what kind of party you’re going to and what you’re in the mood for, there are countless options for new years eve dresses.
- For formal parties and fancy evenings, gowns and cocktail dresses are the best bet. Pair them with statement earrings, embellished heels and a matching clutch.
- For night outs and new years eve parties with friends, wear sequin skirts or mini-dresses. Pair metallic shoes or over-the-knee boots, glossy sling bag and a statement necklace with your new years eve party outfit.
- For quiet dinners with your partner or family, go for a satin or lace dress and pair it with crystal earrings, a classy evening clutch and pumps.
- For outerwear, pick a long fur or wool coat or embellished jacket. Patent leather coats are also a great idea. If you’re pairing a coat with your mini or midi dress, the hemline should fall over your dress’s hem. So go for a slightly longer coat. For maxi dresses and gowns, you can pair them with knee or calf length coats.
For my new years eve outfit, I paired a black lace crop top with a black mini-skirt. This outfit works great for the tropical weather, and would be perfect for a night out if you’re on a new year’s trip down south, or for a casual party with friends. If I had to convert this outfit for a winter night, I’d pair it with black sheer or sparkly leggings and a matching wool overcoat with gold embellishments.
I love head-to-toe black outfits for parties and night-outs. So I accessorized my look with a gold and silver bracelet, a black rose satin clutch and black stilettos with ribbon and bauble detailing.
Makeup for new years eve should be bold or shimmery. Or both. I love trying metallic and shimmery black eyeshadow and creating smokey eye looks with them. For this look, however, I wore a bright red lipstick and paired it with winged eyeliner for a bold eye look. I wore a subtle dash of copper and bronze eyeshadow and finished off the look with some blush.
New year’s is a time to try unique styles – like metallic dresses, colored eyelashes, new hairstyles and glitter lips. So I gave my hair a twist, literally, with a curly hairstyle. I styled loose curls with a black rose hair-pin.
