What to Wear On New Year's Eve Party

Updated on December 2, 2009

New Year's Eve is right in the corner. Parties are going to be held everywhere. From private and casual parties, to formal and corporate level parties. First thing to do is decide what party you'd like to attend for New Year's Eve. Then learn the party's theme. Some parties prefer dress-code. After all those preparation you can just dance like there is no tomorrow..:)

Try to find a suitable outfit for New Year's Eve party should not difficult. Don't let yourself feel burdened about it. Keep it simple and elegant. Keep in mind that whatever you're wearing, wherever you're going, there will always be other guests who are more and less dressy than you. Wear outfit that is comfortable and light. If we feel great about ourselves, we are look great. Confidence is the key.

Formal Party

For some formal party like corporate party, government's parties, we should wear formal dress and outfit. Like the party in my local government, they used to ask the guests to wear Batik and black trousers for men.

If the parties require a tuxedo, you may try a classic black and white combination. Wear a remarkable suit. I'm not sure with a tailed-tuxedo and a colored suit. But I think a gray suit is still suitable for the formal party.
Do not forget to choose a very good tie. Tie will make men look taller and serious. Pair with high-tailored suit and combine with nice shoes and you will ready to celebrate the New Year!

Women have many wide options for formal parties. Black-colored dress for some serious look with silver accessories. Just put one best accessories. I mean, I don't like wearing earings, necklace, and bracelet at the same time. Or, you may wear maximum two accessories like bracelet and necklace, or earings and bracelet but make sure those jewelries are matching.
Match the outfit with clutch and a pair of great shoes. If you really have high confidence, you may try stilletos. Another ideas you may try : a strapless black tube dress. Keep it elegant, formal, and chic.

Semiformal Party

It's easier if the party is semi formal. You may wear colorful t-shirt, leather jacket or leather blazer, and formal trousers. Choose light blue or purple color shirts. Wear a pair of really good shoes. 

Try colorful dress or cocktail dress. Dress in semi formal party or occasions is usually shorter than formal one. The length of semi formal dress varies depending on fashion and local custom.

Casual Party

If the New Year's Party is held by our friends, families, relatives, or outdoor parties and really casual, like in the New York Times Square (if you're lucky enough to be there), then comfortable is the only thing to consider.

You may try to combine jeans, t-shirts, and jackets. In some cold weather, you may also wear winter jacket, hat, sweater, and quality winter boots.
Leather jackets are awesome in semi formal or casual party.

Try the combination of high quality tank top, nice jacket, stretched-jeans, and pretty shoes. You may wearing more bling-bling accessories like long-chain necklace and bracelet but the accessories have to be match. Bring a matching bag too.

      Good advice, especially for the formal wear. Not so with the shoes but it's the matter of taste of course.
