If you are like me and you are opposed to sparkles but still want to incorporate them into your outfit, try minimal amounts of glittery attire. Instead of wearing a full on glittered dress or shirt, see how you like a sparkly headband or shoes paired with a solid colored dress.
If sparkles, period, are too much for you to handle, they can be interchanged with something shiny, such as a gold or silver necklace or earrings. Pairing these shiny accessories with warm holiday colored apparel is suitable for the occasion. Any wintery, cold-weather dress or fancy clothing items, holiday-themed or non-holiday themed, are appropriate for New Year's Eve as well. Style these at your own discretion and you are sure to look fabulously fashionable.
The outfit picking process is much simpler for guys than it is for girls – but it is not completely stress-free. If you are staying home with a few friends, aim for a casual but classy outfit. A nice holiday-themed sweater is suitable for casual celebrations. Cardigans or sweaters combined with dress shoes and jeans are a step up from your average everyday attire while staying on the casual side.
Christmas is over, but holiday colors such as red, green or gold are still applicable. For a more elegant gathering, a tie and dress shirt is appropriate while not being too fancy. Pairing a red, green or gold tie with a black button-down shirt would look sophisticated and proper for the occasion. If you plan to be outside in the cold but you still want to look stylish, try a sports coat. They are classy and comfortable and can keep you warm when needed.
Essential to all
Whether you are doing something casual or attending a classy party, feel free to follow these guidelines. But remember that these are merely suggestions. You can use these tips to create your own perfect New Year's Eve outfit, or use your own judgment and incorporate your individual style to wear what you feel suits you best. Just remember to be confident in whatever you decide to wear and have a marvelous New Year's Eve.
