Whether you’re entertaining at home or going out on New Year’s Eve, there’s no better excuse to wear a gorgeous party dress. If you’re trying to figure out what to wear on NYE, here’s a glamorous New Year’s Eve party outfit that’ll inspire you to dress up.
NYE Party Outfit Inspiration
In today’s style guide, discover how a dazzling sequin sweater dress will keep you warm and cozy on NYE, while also turning up the heat on your style. Plus, learn my tips on how to accessorize your outfit and stay comfortable.
Give the Weather the Cold-Shoulder in a Sweater Dress
Let’s be real for a minute – New Year’s Eve in a lot of places is friggin’ cold. That’s why a sweater dress is so appealing. It’s practical since it keeps you warm. But it looks glamorous embellished with sparkling sequins.
Honestly – I can now see why it really is the perfect NYE party outfit!
3 Style Tips for Shopping for a Sequin Sweater Dress:
- A form-fitting sequin dress looks classiest when it doesn’t reveal a lot of skin. That’s why long-sleeves and longer hemlines on this type of dress work so well.
- If you want to look ladylike, opt for a knee-length or just above the knee hemline (like the Michael Kors dress I’m wearing here). This way, you’ll feel appropriately dressed for any upscale NYE celebration – from elegant dinners to fancy parties.
- If you want to add a dose of sexiness to your outfit, a cold-shoulder cut-out will instantly make you hotter.
Use Accessories To Complement Your Outfit
Since a sequined dress makes a bold statement on its own, accessories should ideally complement the outfit, rather than compete with it. That’s why opting for accessories in the same color family is a smart choice.
Remember, when you’re accessorizing a sequined dress – less is more.
Kick Off New Year’s Eve in Comfortable Party Shoes
Get ready to kick off NYE in comfortable party shoes that look stylish, but fit well.
When shopping for heels, shop for shoes that fit comfortably. Even if they’re Jimmy Choos on sale, if they’re too tight when you try them on, don’t buy them.
As uncute as it is to think about, as we drink and eat throughout the night, our feet naturally expand. Blame it on alcohol, salty foods, or just gravity – but bottom line, it’s one of the reasons why our feet hurt after a long night. That’s why it’s never wise to buy shoes that are uncomfortable.
In addition, I say opt for a heel height that you feel comfortable in. For me – 4″ heels are my max; for other gals, they might prefer 3″ or lower. Figure out what works best for you, and make sure you look natural walking in them.
No matter how you plan to celebrate New Year’s Eve, may you have a warm and wonderful time!
