With New Years being just a few days away and still trying to play catch-up from all of the holiday spending, it’s not always the most feasible idea to go out and buy a new outfit for one night.
Let’s face it — the kind of things we wear on New Year’s Eve are things we will ONLY wear for New Year’s Eve because they’re typically a little more fancy than our everyday outfits, so we can’t even justify that once we get them we’ll wear them again unless you have a special event coming up. Even then it’s a stretch.
In my humble opinion, the easiest way to prevent impulse spending for NYE is to shop from your own closet! You can totally piece together cute outfits from things you already have in there, and I’m going to point out the main things you can use to create a great NYE outfit without having to spend any money!
The looks above are all just things I had in my closet already that I felt i jazzed up enough for the New Year. We’re also keeping it low-key and going to a house party so I don’t need to be TOO fancy haha.
Here are the main pieces you need to create your NYE look:
Item 1: A blazer. Preferably black, but if you like a pop of color, this is a great night to break out a colored blazer, too! I happen to have a fun blazer with faux-leather sleeves (similar here and here), which I think is perfect for a NYE event. Plus, let’s be real — it’s COLD this time of year (most places) and you need a cute layer under your coat that you can leave on and still look chic. I also styled it with a plain black blazer and it looks just as good!
Item 2: A fun & possibly sexy top. NYE is a fun time to dress up and show off. Even show a little skin if you’re comfortable. For my top, I’m wearing this satin lace-lined cami which is fun and flirty with a touch of sexy. I also think this is a cute option, too.
Item 3: Cute shoes. I’d definitely stick with something more on the comfortable side if you can swing it as there’s a good chance you’ll be doing a lot of standing. My options are my favorite OTK boots, cute, comfy booties, or my leopard flats. You can also do some fun black pumps. All are ok for me to wear for long periods because they’re well broken in. Comfort is king! If you want to rock some killer heels, try to keep some flats in your purse or car for when your feet get tired! You’ll thank yourself later.
Item 4: Dark skinny jeans. They flatter everyone and look super fashionable at the same time. I don’t know what it is but they have such a clean and almost expensive look to them don’t they? And they’ll keep your legs warm when it’s freezing outside! I’m not a big fan of short dresses in the winter, even WITH tights. It’s warmth over everything for me hahaha. These are what I’m wearing (my FAVs), these are a more affordable option I also have and love.
Item 5: Accessories! You can spice up any outfit with the right accessories. If you need more bling or sparkle, that’s an easy fix with a necklace. I got these necklaces for Christmas and they’re both super affordable and great quality and would add a cute touch to any outfit.
Item 6: A little black dress. If all else fails and you can’t decide on an outfit, or you want to look a bit more fancy, break out your little black dress. I rave about this dress all the time because it’s so versatile (and it’s on sale right now!!) You can still add a cute blazer, accessories and shoes and give it a whole new look! I added this cute scarf for some extra warmth and it’s only $15!
What is your NYE look going to consist of?? I’d love to see it!!
I hope everyone has a fantastic and SAFE New Years celebration <3
