What to Wear on New Year's Eve (PHOTOS)

what to wear new year's eve

Before we start thinking about our resolutions for 2016 and all the things we want to update for the new year, we have one last party to attend -- New Year’s Eve! It’s the single most fun night of the year, so let’s get your outfit ready and ring in 2016 with some serious style.


New Year's Eve is the night to bring out your glamour. Don’t be shy! I’ve selected two similar long black sequined gowns -- one budget friendly and one splurge worthy -- paired with metallic shoes for our final celebration of 2015. My favorite part of these outfits are the handbags: one says “PARTY" and the other one’s shaped like a champagne bottle, making your outfit extra festive! Since the dresses are embellished with sequins, our jewelry is kept understated with a pair of simple stud earrings. Since we know there will be lots of photos taken, let’s remember the all-important photo booth props to add extra fun to our selfies.

New Year’s Eve, Budget Friendly

If you’re in the mood for a sexy outfit to wear on New Year’s Eve, I’ve got the perfect dress for you. This long sequined dress from H&M has a low-cut back and a high slit in the front. The gold platform strappy sandals by Adrianna Papell and handbag by ALDO go perfectly with the outfit. Since the dress is already embellished, the Daisy Cluster Stud earrings are a simple addition. Finally, let’s add some Happy New Year tiaras to wear for all those photo opportunities.

New Year’s Eve, Splurge Worthy

This ASOS dress says sexy all around! It has a racer-cut style, an open back with criss-cross detail, and a slit in the back. The rose gold sandals by Badgley Mischka are just sparkly enough and complement the dress. Make sure you take a look at the Champagne Bottle Clutch by Kate Spade; you’re going to fall in love with it. It is one of the cutest bags I’ve seen and it’s perfect for this occasion. What other accessories will you need? Just these stud earrings in rose gold by Bauble Bar. Photo booth pictures are extra fun with some props, so be sure to check out my selection from Amazon.
