4 New Year’s Eve Outfits, Style Ideas for Posh & Casual Celebrations

We’re in the throws of the holiday season. But in a few weeks it will all be over. Whether that’s a depressing thought or gives you a sense of relief, there will still be one thing to look forward to…New Year’s Eve. As we talked about in this week’s Clothes & Conversation, “The Main Event: New Year’s Eve Style, Formal or Casual” , you may be going to a upscale affair or having a laidback night of celebration. And we’ve got outfits for both – and everything will match those party hats and noisemakers.
Let us know what you think in the comments below and on social media. We hope you’re enjoying the holidays as much as we enjoy dressing you for them!

A comfy cardigan is always a welcome option for a casual night. This shawl cardigan from J.Crew, in their universally modern fit, has all the good looks that also make it appropriate for a relaxing night of celebrating. Whether you choose to wear it over a white shirt with a navy or grey wool tie and dark jeans or, over a basic t-shirt with your favorite broken-in jeans, the navy bird’s-eye pattern in its soft lambswool has a posh, yet laid-back, look that will be just right.

A dressier New Year’s Eve look doesn’t have to mean typical wool dress pants. Sure, the textured velvet blazer in this outfit (left) can be worn with those for a traditionally dressed up look. But you can also change it up with these black twill jeans from J Brand. The true, saturated black color of the yarn dyed cotton give them a more dressed-up feel that works with the velvet and make them New Year’s Eve ready. These are J Brand’s Kane model, which has a modern and not too skinny fit, so it works for most every gent. The super soft cotton has bit of stretch for comfort that you’ll welcome for the long night ahead.

Instead of a white shirt for this outfit, change it up with this blue chambray shirt from Ledbury. The combination of the casual wash of the cotton chambray fabric and the dressier spread collar makes it just right with the velvet jacket featured, and easy to wear with or without a tie.

Low-key Celebration, Outfit 1. You’ve probably noticed that we have featured many shawl collar cardigan sweaters this season. And for good reason. They are so versatile – more current looking than a traditional cardigan, with style that can dress up or down so much easier than your casual hoodie. It can even make for a perfectly suitable jacket replacement. This navy ribbed wool version from Michael Kors has a smaller shawl collar and higher button stance, which makes it easy to wear unbuttoned or partially buttoned up for that jacket-like finish to your outfit. The modern fit is relaxed without being over-sized, so you will be comfortable and polished looking at the same time – just what an easy New Year’s Eve look is all about.

In keeping with a low-key party, these Joe’s jeans easily work with the sweater featured in this outfit (left). The clean dark blue wash gives them a dapper look that is so smart with the navy sweater. And they are cut in Joe’s most popular fit - the Brixton. It is a modern update with a straight, narrow leg that still has room in the seat and thigh, so they are not too trim.

While this look is all about a low-key celebration, it is New Year’s Eve. Instead of a t-shirt, wear this white spread collar shirt from J.Crew under the shawl cardigan. The 2-ply 120’s cotton is wonderfully soft and very comfortable. The shorter collar looks just right under the smaller shawl collar, too. Plus? The price is just right.

Continuing with the dusty tones of this outfit, we are pretty obsessed with this muted glen plaid J.Crew shirt. The heathered brown color highlights the tan in the featured sweater, and the soft grid pattern looks awesome with the larger stripes in it. The unexpected mix of patterns has a sartorial edge that looks so effortless – and just right for a casual night.
