Are you ready to be the star of your next New Year’s party? You will be wearing the shiniest and most fabulous outfit!


Always Check The Dress Code

Before you start planning your New Year’s party outfit, you should always check the invite to review whether a specific dress code is requested. This is pretty common when it comes to business parties, or events taking place in certain venues.

On the other hand, even if no dress code is mentioned, you should keep in mind the location of the event. If you are going to a formal dinner in a posh restaurant, you definitely need a different outfit that those you would normally wear for a pint at the pub. On the other hand, you would normally wear your suit at a home party.

Black Tie

You can never go wrong with a black tie. This is a classy piece of accessory which can be easily paired with your best suit or even a more informal outfit. On the other hand, you can achieve the same result with a bow tie. Just don’t wear it with a wing-collared shirt, as it would look too formal.

A Night At The Club

If you and your friends are going to celebrate the New Year at the club or the pub, you should first check whether there is any requested dress code. Otherwise, we recommend a pair of black or dark brown smart boots, a cool t-shirt and your favourite pants. Add a touch of style with a leather jacket or blazer.

Formal Dinner Parties

Dinner parties may be boring, but you can spice them up a bit with the right outfit! Wear a relaxed suit, with smart trainers instead of loafers. If you are feeling bold, you can try wearing a t-shirt instead of a shirt, or a velvet blazer. the trousers should be narrower, to create a balanced silhouette.

House Parties

When it comes to house parties, there is no proper dress code you need to follow. If you want to look fabulous, we recommend an Oxford shirt worn over a plain t-shirt. Otherwise, for some preppy vibes, try a thick cardigan or a cosy knitwear.

Fireworks Display Shows

These shows are great, but they all take place outdoors, meaning that you must dress accordingly. A simple beanie should keep you warm along with some cosy wool gloves. Layer up all your clothes, with your peat cot as your best piece. The coat should be comfortable and allow a wide range of movements to enjoy the show.

Dress Smart On A Budget

If you need to wear a suit, you can still look fabulous without spending too much money. All you need is a jacket, shirt and some trousers. Each piece should fit perfectly and be in proper colours. Shoes must be polished and clean. To add a touch of personality to your outfit, you can wear some accessories, such as a red belt or a glitter bow tie.

Going To a Ball?

If you have been invited to a ball, then you should rock a formal outfit. If the invite doesn’t specify anything about the look, we recommend getting a tuxedo with a black tie. To make the overall look bolder, you can wear a velvet blazer or pair of trousers. If you don’t like shirts, then go for a roll neck jumper.

An Evening with Your Significant Other

Spending the night with your girlfriend or boyfriend doesn’t mean you shouldn’t pay attention to your outfit. You surely want to look smart, so you should still wear a tie and a dress jacket. Choose a smart pair of boots or loafers. If you want, play with different colours, such as plum or red.

Family Gatherings

We all love spending some time with our family. If you don’t want to feel too dressed up, but you can’t renounce your style, you can rock a cosy jumper or a smart sweatshirt, with a t-shirt or a shirt for layering. Just try to stay cosy and cool.

A Night Out with Your Friends

Ready for a long party and a night out? You surely want to look your best, even without overdoing it, so a relaxed suit should be the best option. Otherwise, if you think that a blazer would be too much, then you can try with a warm jumper or a plain coloured shirt, a pair of dark denim and some comfortable shoes.
