When to Shop for New Years Eve Outfits
Typically, the best time to shop for New Years Eve outfits is in early December. This is when most retailers are starting to release their glittering + gold collections for the biggest party season of the year. If you’re looking for something sequin that’s also on-trend, now’s your chance to find the perfect outfit to end the year!
On the other hand, if you want budget-friendly New Years Eve outfit ideas, we’d suggest waiting until after the ball has dropped to buy the perfect pieces. This is when all things sparkly and over-the-top will go on sale, as the parties end and the season’s magic starts to wear off.
GWS Tip: If you do decide to buy a year in advance, we suggest looking for classic New Years Eve outfit ideas versus super trendy ones. This way, you don’t run the risk of buying something that won’t still be in style for next NYE!
How to Style Your New Years Eve Outfit
NYE is your chance to ditch the classic fashion rules and go all out with your look — and that makes styling New Years Eve outfits SO fun! Our favorite New Years Eve outfit ideas follow the motto: the more glam the better. That means all things sparkly, shiny, and champagne-inspired!
Whether you’re going for head-to-toe sequins or casual New Years Eve outfits, a pair of iconic sparkly earrings is always a good idea. From festive fringe styles to ultra glam hoops, there are endless options for adding some extra bling to your look!
And the same goes for your shoes. After all, when else do have an excuse to buy some truly fabulous glittery heels?! (We also love styling New Years Eve outfits with sparkly boots, especially if you’re dressing for cold weather.)
And speaking of dressing for the elements, the best way to style New Years Eve outfit ideas for cold weather is with an equally glamorous coat. This year we’re obsessed with faux fur jackets — but we can also be swayed with a sequin blazer or embellished bomber jacket!
