Chic Outfits for Your NYE Celebrations

While you can technically dress in all the sparkly outfits you like all year round, there's no day (or night) of the year that works as a better excuse to break out all the glitz and glam than New Year's Eve.

Whether you're going all out at an event or just cuddling up to watch the countdown, having the right outfit in play can make all the difference in your NYE celebration. If you're searching for a little bit of inspiration for what to wear on the big night, we've got you covered. Whatever it is you're doing this NYE, keep it chic at your celebration with one of these outfit ideas.

1. A Leather Pants Look

If "jeans and a cute top" is your go-to look for any sort of celebration, kick it up a notch by swapping the denim for faux or vegan leather. We think this look from Abercrombie ($110) is the perfect example.

2. A Red Hot Sweater Dress

Look hot and stay warm with an ultra-cute bodycon sweater dress in a warm maroon color, like this one from Hollister ($59.95).

3. A Satin Mini Dress

Stay on trend without going too over the top with a chic satin mini dress, like this one that's from Hollister ($59.95). Sticking to black helps keep the look classic, and you can find plenty of versions of dresses like this at other stores, too.

Go a little longer without losing any style points with a gorgeous satin midi dress, like this Champaign-colored one from Express ($108).

5. A Shimmery Backless Fit

Show a little skin while still keeping your outfit on point for winter with a long-sleeve, backless option. Bonus points if it's sparkly or shimmery, of course, like this option from Lulus ($48).

6. A Strapless Stunner

The balance of a midi skirt with a strapless sweetheart neckline? A total winner for keeping it chic on NYE. It really doesn't get better than this option from Abercrombie ($110), which is a sparkly gray option perfect for any gathering on the fancier side.

7. An Art Deco-Inspired Outfit

Go all out in Gatsby-esque glamour with a sequined embroidered dress, like this one from Lulus ($82). Roaring 20's theme or not, we think a classic Art Deco look is a total winner.

If a dress and sparkles just aren't your thing, it's time to find a chic yet unique knit long-sleeve top to elevate your NYE look. Look for something with interesting, body-flattering details, like this cropped option from SHEIN ($25).
