What should I wear to a New Year’s Eve party?

New Year’s Eve is a perfect time to wear something stunning and eye-catching. In my opinion, you can’t go wrong with black and glittery pieces. Cocktail dresses are always a popular choice for New Year’s Eve, but you can still look chic with a comfy and casual look, including:

  • Silk midi skirt with a cozy sweater and heels
  • Jeans with a statement top and ankle boots
  • Glittery shorts or pants with a black top
  • Mini skirt with a blazer and knee-high boots
  • Jumpsuit with a statement belt and heels

Chic + Casual New Year’s Eve Outfits

If your plans are casual for NYE and you’ll be heading to a dinner party, friend’s house, laid-back event, or staying in, I’ve sourced some seriously chic yet still casual New Year’s Eve outfits you’ll love!

knit sweater + sequin pants.

A sparkly top isn’t the only way to go on New Year’s Eve! You can opt for shimmering pants like the ones I am wearing above. I love how statement pants can have you party-ready in a flash, and the wide-leg cut will keep you comfortable throughout the evening. 

I recommend pairing sequin pants with classic pieces like a crewneck sweater and black heels, although you can add an edgy touch with a leather jacket, like I did here!

get the look:

I’ve been loving all the mesh in the fashion scene this past year. The outfit above would be my top choice for a night of bar hopping on New Year’s Eve. The all-black look is sleek and elegant, but it definitely still has that sultry aesthetic with the bralette and whinestone mesh top combo. 

knit shirt dress + knee-high boots.

get the look:

This is a perfect outfit if you plan to spend New Year’s Eve relaxing with close friends. The neutral-toned casual sweater dress has a cozy feel that I love, and it looks so gorgeous paired with the over-the-knee suede boots. 

You can recreate this look with any casual shirt dress. If you want a classic, feminine look, I suggest changing the boots to heels.

get the look:

Next is one of my fave New Year’s Eve outfits on the list! The metallic silver pants are the perfect statement piece paired with a black sweater that balances out the bold bottoms. 

In my experience, you don’t want to get caught out on NYE without a coat, so a warm coat is a must. I love how the pastel grey color works with the pants as well. Don’t forget a pair of classy slingback heels and the shimmering handbag!

long-sleeved top + satin midi skirt.

get the look:

While this outfit is made up of simple pieces, it has an elegant and high-class look that I can’t get enough of. The crinkled satin skirt adds a beautiful texture to the outfit, and the top looks just as gorgeous.

If you ask me, the strappy black pumps and silver-toned jewelry pull the outfit together. And you can easily pair any midi skirt with a long-sleeved top to get this same look.

If you want to make this outfit a bit more casual, I recommend swapping the heels for a pair of black boots. 

satin tank & leather mini skirt.

get the look:

Here’s another outfit with a crinkle detail! This gorgeous top from Mango is the star of the outfit and has a shimmer that makes it perfect for NYE. 

The top pairs perfectly with a leather mini, sheer tights, and silver slingback heels. If it’s going to be a colder night, swap the shoes for a pair of over-the-knee or kee-high boots. 

turtleneck sweater, stirrup leggings + slingbacks.

get the look:

Stirrup leggings are having a moment, and it looks like the trend is here to stay for 2024. This outfit is another excellent choice for anyone staying in or going to a small New Year’s Eve party. I think it’s the perfect blend of relaxed and comfy with chic and put-together. 

The neutral tones make this casual outfit look elegant, so opt for a white, cream, or light grey top. The slingback flats add to the simple look of this outfit, and the black stirrup leggings pull the whole look together. 

 
 
 

leather pants, chunky turtleneck + pumps.

get the look:

Sleek leather pants paired with a chunky sweater create a polished yet edgy look. I love the addition of the glossy black heels, which really elevate the outfit, in my opinion. 

This outfit is chic but has a cozy feel that would work in a more intimate party setting. And you can easily change the look by switching the black sweater to a different color or adding gold-toned jewelry. 

sequined tee & leather blazer.

get the look:

If your New Year’s Eve plans involve meeting friends and grabbing a bite before going out for cocktails, a chic yet bold outfit like this is one I would recommend!

It’s casual, it’s fun, and the silver details make it perfect for a night like NYE. And I love how the leather jacket is another stylish addition that will also keep you warm on a cold winter night. 

silky two-piece pajamas + pumps.

get the look:

If this isn’t one of the most perfect casual New Year’s Eve outfits for staying in, then I don’t know what is. This sleek and silky two-piece outfit mimics the look of pajamas and has a cozy feel that I love. But the feathered trim and black heels add an alluring look to this outfit, making it one of my top picks for a NYE outfit.

So, just because you’re staying home for NYE doesn’t mean you can’t look fabulous while doing it. Use any classy two-piece set and add heels to get this same look. 

jeans, cardigan + heels.

get the look:

This is the ultimate chic and casual New Year’s Eve outfit. The straight-leg jeans add a relaxed feel, while the tucked-in cardigan and heels bring a touch of sophistication. Even that gorgeous handbag really elevates the look, taking something that looks cozy and bringing it to another level. 

I love how you can wear this stylish outfit whether you’re going to a restaurant or a house party for New Year’s Eve. And, if you prefer an outfit with more color, I would swap the blue jeans for black or wear a sweater with a pop of color.

turtleneck, midi skirt + pumps.

@lindajuhola

get the look:

This is another one of my favorite casual New Year’s Eve outfits on the list. The turtleneck sweater makes this outfit look so cozy, while the gorgeous heels and midi skirt add a refined touch to the look.

If you ask me, this NYE outfit is a must if you’re going to a restaurant or an intimate party. You can also swap the turtleneck out with another type of sweater, and tucking it into the skirt can give this look a more tailored look. 

silk wrap top, jeans + heels.

@waityouneedthis

get the look:

Even though this outfit includes jeans, the other pieces are so chic that the whole outfit looks sophisticated and high-class. 

I think this silk wrap top looks stunning, and the silky material helps to make this outfit so elegant. The top paired with the black pumps makes this ensemble look dreamy, while the jeans keep it comfortable and casual enough to wear all night on New Year’s Eve. In my opinion, you can’t go wrong with a look like this!

sweater, mini skirt + tall boots.

get the look:

I adore the playful and energetic vibe that this outfit gives off. The combination of the fringed mini skirt and partially buttoned top really gives this look a youthful feel. 

To recreate this look, you can pair any patterned mini skirt with a cardigan or button-up shirt. The tall boots are so cute with the outfit, and I think they fit into the youthful vibe perfectly. However, you can easily pair this look with heels as well.  

Put on this outfit and sip a delicious Vodka Sidecar for a relaxed New Year’s party in. 

Slightly Less Casual New Years Eve Outfits

flowy glitter top + black pants.

@carinapinheiro

get the look:

This look has an overall casual feel with the loose-fit button-up and black pants. But this outfit’s details make it eye-catching, such as the slit in the pant leg and the shimmer of the white top. And the strappy heels add a feminine touch that I am honestly so obsessed with! 

I could easily see this worn to a high-class restaurant, a house party, or even an office party. This outfit is the perfect blend of elegance and fun, making it a great look for any occasion.  

glitter shorts, blazer + over-the-knee boots.

@camilleth_

get the look:

I am in love with this look! The silver sequined shorts make the whole outfit pop, while the all-over black look is chic and stunning. I think the shorts and over-the-knee boots add a youthful vibe to the outfit, and the blazer keeps it classy. 

This look is perfect for a night out on the town. And I love how it can easily be modified, such as swapping the sequined shorts for sequin pants, a mini skirt, or a midi skirt. 

statement top, jeans + chunky boots.

@jessie_bush

get the look:

My next outfit definitely has an edgy vibe to it. Casual jeans paired with the amazing Paco Rabanne chain-mail star top creates such a fierce look. And the chunky books also add to the edgy aesthetic. 

This outfit is one of my top choices for a NYE night spent out at a bar or nightclub. You can also pair the jeans with a sheer shirt or a fringed top to give off a similar look. 

If the Paco Rabanne shirt is out of your budget (it’s very pricey, to say the least!), try a different shirt with a chain-mail style or go with a sequin top. Or, opt for the 2023 H&M Paco Rabanne line of more affordable options, including this sequin disc top

jumpsuit, button-up + heels.

@sincerelyjules

get the look:

This casual New Year’s Eve outfit has a fun-loving look to it. The black jumpsuit looks excellent paired with the rhinestone belt, and I adore how the feather-sleeve shirt gives this look a playful vibe. 

If you don’t have a jumpsuit, I suggest wearing a black top and bottoms instead. This look is gorgeous and casual, making it an excellent choice for New Year’s Eve, whether you’re staying in or going out. 

cozy sweater, sequin midi skirt + heels.

get the look:

Last on my list of casual New Year’s Eve outfits, this takes the classic look of a sweater and midi skirt and gives it an upgrade. The silver shimmer of the skirt looks so gorgeous, and the blue pumps add a pop of color that I love. I also think that the light tone of the sweater adds balance to the outfit. 

I would also use a silk skirt to get the same classy look and pair it with gorgeous, eye-catching heels. 

What do you wear when it’s cold on New Year’s Eve?

Even if you live somewhere cold, there are plenty of ways to look cute and stay warm on New Year’s Eve. I recommend pairing a chunky sweater with a mini skirt, thigh tights, and over-the-knee boots. Or, you can also combine jeans with a sequinned long-sleeve top and a cozy faux fur jacket. 

If you live somewhere that sees low temperatures on New Year’s Eve night, layering is the best way to stay warm and cozy while you’re out and about. This way, you can focus on bringing in the New Year with friends and family instead of trying to stay warm!

What color should I wear on New Year’s Eve 2024?

In my experience, New Year’s Eve is the perfect opportunity to wear metallic colors like silver, champagne, and gold. Or, you can go bolder with sequins or metallic blue, pink, or purple.

Pair the bolder colors with neutral tones like grey, black, or ivory to balance your outfit. For example, a champagne sequin statement top will look classy and elevated with a pair of black stirrup leggings or black leather pants. 

 

No matter how you spend your New Year’s Eve, you can find an outfit that will be gorgeous and chic but still casual enough to be comfortable in all night long!
