PARTY QUEEN / Dec 15, 2021


The New Year is just around the corner. But before we get into resolutions, we've got a New Year's Eve party to attend—right?

New Year's Eve is the perfect occasion to dial up the sexy and sparkle. Tight silhouettes, see-through fabrics, sequins, and jewels—these are all ideal for your New Year's Eve outfit.

Need help narrowing it down? Take a look at these five New Year's Eve outfit ideas to help inspire your fiery look.

💛 Bodycon Dress

Bodycon dresses are a classic choice for any New Year's Eve party. Essentially, they're any dress that hugs your body to enhance your curves.

Typically, bodycon dresses are made of stretchy fabric to fit your body like a glove.

For your New Year's party outfit, we recommend choosing a bodycon dress that also features embellishments, like beads, sequins, jewels, and glitter. Classic colors are champagne or gold, black, or jewel tones. (Like sapphire or emerald.)

If you opt for a short bodycon dress, your feet will be on display, so rock those showstopping heels that are sitting in your closet.

And don't forget a nice warm coat to get you to and from the party. A faux fur coat will provide a trendy entrance and exit.

💛 Gold Dress

Nothing screams the holidays like gold. If you're looking through Pinterest for New Year's Eve party outfit ideas, you'll probably see gold all over your feed.

We wouldn't be surprised. Gold represents luxury. If you're going to a fancy New Year's Eve party, your outfit has to incorporate this precious metal!

We love sweetheart necklines for holiday parties—they're super sexy! Plus, they create the perfect canvas for a statement necklace.

Babydoll or A-line silhouettes are a great alternative to the bodycon silhouette. They also allow for more movement—ideal if you're spending most of your time on the dance floor.

💛 Long-sleeve Embellished Dress

This time of year can be a bit chilly for many of you. Looking for a New Year's Eve outfit idea that'll keep you warm? Look no further. Long-sleeve dresses are the answer!

To keep the look sexy as ever, we recommend rocking a short bodycon dress with mesh fabric. It'll still show off your beautiful arms without sacrificing comfort.

Of course, we'll always encourage some bling as well. This can be on the dress itself or through your jewelry and accessories. A jewel-studded clutch will do the trick!

Want to hear our little secret for elongating the legs? Rock a pair of nude heels! These go great with casual outfits, too—the perfect investment for your wardrobe.

💛 Slinky Black Dress

Going to a formal New Year's Eve party? Then hello, LBD. Nope, we don't mean "little black dress"—we mean a long, black dress.

Black works for many occasions, so many women overlook the shade for New Year's Eve. But we think it can still make a bold statement. Here's how you do it.

First, we recommend opting for a dress with a slinky silhouette, like a mermaid dress. (Like bodycon dresses, mermaid dresses hug your curves and flare out at the knee.) Drapey materials, like chiffon and mesh, fall gracefully over the body—giving the wearer a slimming appearance.

Don't hesitate to choose a black dress that features gold or silver. This immediately adds glamor to your look.

Cut-outs and low-backs will also add allure. And just like that, you have an eye-catching New Year's Eve outfit.

💛 Corset-Tie Dress

If you're looking for a seductive addition to your New Year's Eve outfit, here's an idea you'll love: choose a dress with a corset-tie back.

There's no denying it—corsets are utterly sexy and ideal for ladies that want to make a bold entrance. Don't forget your accessories. A thick cuff bracelet or a statement necklace will go a long way here.

Choose a unique hairstyle to complete this showstopping look: a fishtail braid or high ponytail are both great options.

We recommend choosing a dress with an illusion-v neckline to balance out the look. It adds a bit more coverage—and support if you're dancing the night away.
