New years eve outfit ideas, friends partying, fun and social

Last year, we rang in 2023 with a bang because it was the first year in a while where everything seemed… well, almost normal. We met up with friends, listened to music, played board games, and just had some good old-fashioned fun. This year, let’s keep the fun and joyous feeling going – but let’s do it in style!

Regardless of whether you want to wear something more casual or more eye-catching, make sure you wear something that makes you feel confident. Treat yourself to a new blouse, dress, or fabulous accessory. Live a little and make an impulse buy. Even if you’re staying home, put on something that makes you feel good while you ring in the new year. Whatever you decide to do, have fun and stay safe!

1. Night on the Town

You can’t go wrong with a forest green dress or, for a more daring look, a sleek black jumpsuit. Pair it with bright and festive accessories to make it New Year’s Eve-ready. We like a sparkly clutch and statement jewelry to match. For extra oomph, pair it with a bold coat.

2. Outdoor Gatherings

In the middle of winter, you will want to be warm if you’re outside on New Year’s Eve. Stay toasty with a puffer coat that will keep you warm but look sleek, paired with a cashmere scarf and some rocking boots.

3. Casual Night In

Just because you’re staying in or hanging out with family for the night, it doesn’t mean you have to stay in pajamas… unless you want to! But if you’re looking for something a little nicer, try your favorite pair of leggings or a jumpsuit with a chunky cardigan. Add some jewelry, mascara, and trendy lipstick for an easy, no-fuss outfit.

I know what you’re thinking: what’s casual about faux leather leggings? Well, when you get a pair from Spanx, you’ll be amazed at how comfy they are while helping you look sleek and toned. Pair them with an embellished sweater and come cool new kicks, and you’ll feel casually cool all night long.

5. Casual Night In – Hip and Cozy

They don’t call these leggings live-in for nothing because they’re the ultimate in comfort. Paired with a crisp denim shirt, knee-high boots, and some trendy gold jewelry, you’ll have the perfect look to play boardgames with friends or sit around the fire pit and ring in the new year with friends and loved ones.

6. Hosting Friends

Our last of the foolproof New Year’s Eve outfits are certainly not the least. If you’re hosting, you’ll want to be festive while not wearing anything too restrictive. Sweater dresses are chic, and when paired with a fashionable pair of heeled boots, you can be comfortable long past midnight. Sheer tights, which are very in right now, add a little bit of glam, and go ahead and add some pearl earrings and a brown eye palette for a seasonally appropriate finish!

7. Hosting Friends with a Bit of Flare

Sweater dresses are comfortably chic, but if that’s not your style, feel free to go with jeans, a fitted shirt, and a fashion-forward blazer. This look can take you from afternoon festivities well into the night, allowing you to look great all night long (and even into the morning)!
