Minimum effort and sparkles ahead.
New Year’s Eve fashion typically translates to an overwhelming number of sequins. But you don’t have to scoop up a shimmery, tight-fitting mini dress to ring in the decade right — there’s no sparkle minimum to be met, after all. Whether you’re welcoming 2020 from the comfort of your couch or venturing out into the night, we’ve put together six easy New Year’s Eve outfits that’ll help you celebrate the end of the 2010s feeling like you (and not like a disco ball). The best part? You can find most of this stuff already in your closet.
The Cozy Look
A feathered jacket or top is the perfect compliment to an otherwise simple pair of jeans. For those who want to dress up their denim further, a blush-colored kitten heel or pearl hair embellishments will help your baby blues go from day to night.
The Disco Look
Find yourself feeling instantly fancy with a glossy satin blouse in a luxe champagne hue. Wear an equally silky bottom in a statement shade — like a vivid fuchsia — and add high-shine accessories (like a crystal-fringe shoulder bag) to complete the festive look.
The Lazy-Chic Look
You don’t need to sacrifice your innate sense of style if you’re staying in; instead, find a pretty set of pajamas that are equal parts festive and comfortable. If you’re having people over for some bubbly, finish the look off with playfully-patterned shoes and a padded headband.
The Remixed-LBD Look
Show some love to that long-forgotten black dress in your closet by jazzing it up with metallic tights. Throw on a pair of conversation-starting boots and big, bedazzled hoops for a party ‘fit that won’t go unnoticed.
The Glam-Rock Look
Give your go-to leather pants another night to remember by tucking a subtly twinkly top into them — all you need to add is a cool slide and glistening ear adornments.
The ’80s Barbie Look
Take the sartorial path less traveled on this notorious party night and opt for a bright, ’80s-inspired midi dress rather than a cut-to-there sequin mini. You might not remember much of your evening at the end of the decade, but you will remember the dress that you wore when it started.
