The time has come to ring in the new year, so why not do it in style. This occasion definitely calls for some fancy, yet stylish outfits with which to celebrate the night in.
Holiday parties with the boss are over and done with, so pull out some of your favorite accessories of the season and go big this year.
For the men, getting fancy means putting on that favorite suit you own and adding some pieces to spruce up the look. A watch is sure to make a statement no matter which style you choose. Adding a vest to your suit livens up the look a little bit more and is worthy of any sort of plans you have to ring in the new year.
If you are in a colder area, short skirts or dresses might not be as appealing, but that doesn’t mean you don’t have fabulous options at your fingertips. A sparkle top with some skinny jeans and a pair of pumps will fit right in. Adding a statement piece such as a bold clutch or some statement bracelets are a great way to complete the outfit.
One of my favorite trends this season is the obsession with textures, patterns and layers. Ruffles are a wonderful way to achieve this trend and give any (even a regular v-neck t-shirt) look that little extra something to make it pop. In this case, we chose a textured shirt with a belt, a pair of sleek black pants, and a few awesome statement pieces to add a bit of color and complete your overall look.
This is a great time for men to wear their best threads and accessorize with some sleek details such as a pair of glasses, and a black bow tie. For the formals, this is a great look to pull off.

We talked a bit earlier about vests, and the vital part they play in dressing up your look. Another tip is getting a thicker and more interesting fabric such as tweed or wool. The fabric takes care of the texture itself to give you a few extra brownie points with your look. Adding a bold print shirt and some rocking shoes will complete the look without too much effort at all.
Sparkles are a great way to go if you are looking for a great way to spruce up your look. Some people love the sophisticated sparkle, while others just can’t stand it. If you are a sparkle-lover, these pieces are definitely for you. A sparkle dress with a black coat allow you to show off a little, without looking like Time Square at midnight. And a statement bracelet will never do any harm.
Oh bow ties, how we love thee! This is a great little accessory, that you will definitely be able to wear again. And even better, this collection is reversible meaning double the wear! If you are a bow tie lover, this is definitely a shop you should check out so you can get double the fun for your money. Add these bow ties to any of the suits below and you will definitely give that traditional style a whole new look.
Sparkles can be adding a variety of ways to complete your look. Jackets, skirts, and dresses are three of the most common. While it is important not to combine all your sparkle goodness on one outfit. you can still play with less sparkly but still as bold accessories like cocktail rings or a great pair of earrings.
For a less dressed up look, a vest and cardigan combo might just be the way to go. You still look sharp, but definitely not as formal as some of the other looks. A great tie with a pattern will also give your look a little something interesting that will fit the look quick well.
Saving my personal favorite for last, let’s talk about this awesome dress and a few great details that you are pair with the look. Stripes are a perfect example of bold patterns that are currently in style. With a flowing dress, this is a perfect piece to go out to dinner or go out dancing. Stacked bracelets are coming up in the world as one of the newest trends, and boy is this one fun! Pair many different textures, and sizes together to create the perfect combo of pieces to pair with your dress. In the spirit of New Year‘s, sparkle nail polish is a great little addition to your look.
We hope you have enjoyed the fabulous holiday season and are getting ready to celebrate the New Year in style! No matter what your plans are, there are a variety of outfits you can pull together. Pieces from the various looks above can be mixed and matched to create that perfect outfit for the occasion.
