What To Wear for New Year’s Eve

It’s hard to believe, but New Year’s Eve is tomorrow!!! Of course, that begs the question: What To Wear for New Year’s Eve??

Our New Year’s Eve festivities are usually pretty subdued. I don’t have the occasion to wear a sparkly dress and paint the town red, but I do like to dress up for New Year’s Eve, even though we usually spend it at home or with friends in the neighborhood.

What To Wear for New Year's Eve: I love this shimmer cowl neck sweater with jeans and nude heels for a casual NYE party at home.

Details: Shimmer Cowl Sweater $29 (marked down from $98!) | Emma skinnies $168
Nude Pumps $15 | Metallic Perforated Clutch $75 (sale price)
Veda Split Ring $49 | nails: CND Indigo Frock

We were supposed to be visiting family in Maine this weekend, but as it turns out, we’ll be ringing in the New Year here at home with a few good friends.

I ordered this sparkly cowl neck sweater from White House Black Market a few weeks ago, and it finally arrived a couple of days ago — and just in time! It’s the perfect thing for a casual New Year’s Eve party at home. And it has JUST been reduced MORE. When I ordered it, it was $58, but now it is just $29!!!

The sweater also comes in grey, which would be lovely with black pants or jeans. The grey is $49.

I tried it first with white jeans, but I wasn’t feeling it. I could definitely wear it with black jeans or ponte pants, but I think I’m going to go super casual and wear it with my light wash skinny jeans. I really like the combination of the champagne color with the light wash jeans.

I accessorized with gold. The sparkly circle earrings are old. I think I got them at Francesca’s long ago. They’re fun for an evening look. Then I added my Veda Split Ring and my metallic perforated clutch. (If you have Dot Dollars to redeem with Stella & Dot, now’s the time to spend them!!!)

I wore nude pumps to keep the color palette consistent.

Now that I’m going to be in town for NYE, I might run out to Payless and pick up these Holly Shimmer Pumps in Champagne. Wouldn’t they be the perfect finishing touch!?

  1. That sweater is very pretty and you look beautiful in it. I read a lot of reviews that said is was itchy and ran big in size. Do you find it itchy and big in size? Also is it see through where you need to wear a cami underneath? i have never orderd anything from WHBM. I am at 5″ but do not always buy petite sizes because i find sometimes the body length is too short; i like my tops to hit me at my hip joint. Although I do need the petite size for arm lenght but i just deal that. Oh the joys of being short. We never do anything exciting for New Years Eve, just stay home and if lucky stay awake long enough to watch the ball drop from one of the NYE shows on TV. Hope you enjoy your NYE.

    1. Hey Linda, it does run big. I’m wearing a small. I didn’t feel that I needed a cami, but it is a bit itchy, if that sort of thing bothers you. Since it is the sort of thing I’ll only wear for a few hours at a time when I have an event, it wasn’t a deal breaker for me. I hope that helps!

  2. Love the sparkly sweater! So pretty on you. DH and I sometimes go to a party. If not, we see a late movie and have dinner at the 24 hour diner in town – which is this year’s plan. Happy New Year to you!

  3. We will be spending New Years Eve way out in the country around a Bon fire down at our lake house with a few of my husbands hunting buddies. My attire will be very casual and warm since the mode of transportation will be our 4-wheeler. I love being out where we can see stars galore, but I’m not thrilled with being the only female around. We do have a few fireworks to shoot over our lake, which will be pretty. At least it’s only a few hours!

  4. Hi,

    You look great! Is the sweater true to size? I’m kind of in between sizes and I’m wondering if I should go up or down.
    Have a Happy New Year!
