Happy Monday, friends! Let’s talk about what to wear for New Year’s Eve.
I know, I know, it’s still two weeks away, but if you wait until after Christmas to think about what you’re going to wear for New Year’s Eve, it will be too late to order anything.
Not that you need to buy something new to wear for New Year’s Eve, but at least get your outfit planned now, so if you do need to grab something to make it complete, you won’t end up scrambling or paying extra for rush shipping. As it is, a lot of the good stuff is already selling out.
I have a few options for you… first up, this sparkly jumpsuit featuring a relaxed wide leg, cuffed short sleeves, and an elastic waist with a tie belt.
This jumpsuit is so comfortable; it just pulls on easily and buttons in the back of the neck. If you need to use the ladies room, it isn’t a big deal at all.
It’s made of a stretchy knit that is remarkably forgiving, and you can easily wear shaping shorts underneath, if you want a little extra contouring and/or support.
Like a dress, a jumpsuit is basically a one-and-done look, making it super easy to style. I just added black suede pumps and a few pieces of sparkly jewelry in the same black and silver color scheme.
To jazz up the look even more, I carried this black feather bag, which I absolutely adore!
It’s quite a splurge for a trendy piece, but if you have a lot of events, it could come in very useful. (The lighting in this picture makes it almost look blue, but it’s black.)
Evereve touts this jumpsuit as an off-the-shoulder style, but I prefer it worn on the shoulders, like this.
It doesn’t look awkward or slide around or anything. I would just recommend a bra that has wider straps than what I’m wearing here.
Unfortunately, it’s starting to sell out, but this one is similar and pretty well-stocked, and both are on sale!
If your New Year’s Eve festivities call for a slightly more casual vibe, how about this velour top paired with washed black denim?
EVEREVE Carla Velour Top (S) // PAIGE High Rise Laurel Canyon in Slater (also at Nordstrom // on sale at Bloomies) (29) // Blondo Sadie Waterproof Boots (8) (dressier option) // J.Crew Square faceted necklace // Ettika Chandelier Earrings // Loeffler Randall Rhinestone Baguette Bag
I love the flattering v-neckline and smocked cuffs, and how the blue is somewhat unexpected for this time of year.
You could tuck it in, I suppose, but the 23″ length looks fine left out, and I like the more streamlined look.
These jeans are the PAIGE Laurel Canyon in the Slater wash. The vintage-inspired washed black wash has a casual vibe that’s offset by the trouser-style welt pockets and front seams. I’m totally into these right now.
They have a 35″ inseam with a 20″ leg opening and an 11 1/4″ high rise; and they’re on sale at Bloomingdale’s in limited sizes. You can also find some sizes at Nordstrom, and they’re fully stocked at paige.com.
I had mine hemmed because the 35″ inseam was waaaaaay too long for my 5’5″ frame, but the taller ladies will appreciate that!
I can’t say I’m loving my shoe choice here; these Blondo booties are more casual than I’d prefer with the accessories I’m wearing.
I think I even brought my Sam Edelman Usha stiletto heeled booties to the photo shoot, so I don’t know why I didn’t put them on. They would look much better to me, but if you’re going out in messy weather, these waterproof Blondos would be a fine option.
Usually I choose one statement piece and then a supporting piece, but I feel like these two are fairly equal in that capacity, but they don’t seem to compete.
I also carried my Loeffler Randall rhinestone baguette bag, but any sparkly clutch would do. The idea is to add some sparkle and shine since the other fabrics in the outfit are more matte.
The prices on these pieces are phenomenal, and you can use code JOLYNNE20 to take an additional 20% off your Gap Factory order through end of day (12/18/23)!
Gap Factory Relaxed Shine Splitneck Top (S) // High Rise 70’s Flare Velvet Pants with Washwell (29) // Marc Fisher Ulani Pointed Toe Booties (8) // Nina Crystal Frame Clutch // LOFT Crystal Shaker Necklace & Crystal Drop Earrings
I went with a leather pointed toe bootie, in this case, to create a variety of textures. I don’t usually pair suede shoes and velvet pants because they seem to compete.
I think this cut-out top is so fun, and I like that it’s bra-friendly and has long sleeves. My only caveat is that it’s a little snug; I’ve ordered the medium, so I have a little more breathing room. I plan to wear this to a live music event on NYE weekend.
This time I went with a strappy sandal to add some extra bling to the outfit, but I actually wish I’d switched out these shoes for the booties in the outfit above, and vica versa.
If you’re one of the lucky ones with a more formal affair to attend on NYE, this Vince Camuto metallic sheath that I considered for my husband’s holiday company party would be my top pick. It’s still well-stocked on the Nordstrom website.
Here’s a close-up shot of the fabric and the Ettika Chandelier Earrings.
Finally, if you plan to ring in the New Year in your pajamas… hey, there’s no shame in that game!
We hosted a party last year, but this year will be more subdued, and that’s just fine by me.
I love a good pair of festive pajamas, so I linked up some options for you below.
