Elevated New Year’s Eve Outfit Ideas

With another year quickly coming to an end, it’s once again time to figure out what to wear for that New Year’s Eve celebration. Your first instinct might be to wear a sequin dress or a sparkly jumpsuit, as NYE is known for its extravagant styles, but there are other ways to get dressed up to the nines without going too over the top. 

At Crescent, we prioritize minimalist styles that are simple and refined. To help you ring in the new year feeling and looking good, we’ve put together this list of minimal New Year’s Eve outfit ideas you are sure to love.

1.Sleek Velvet Dress

A sleek velvet dress is a great option for any New Year’s Eve celebration. Not only will it keep you feeling comfortable throughout the night, but the fabric also has a subtle shine that stays true to the glamorous essence of the holiday without looking too busy. Pair your velvet dress with a gorgeous jacket or blazer, and you are ready to hit the town and say hello to the new year ahead.

2.Vegan Leather Mini-Skirt & Sweater Top

For an edgier New Year’s Eve outfit, we recommend pairing a vegan leather mini-skirt with a chic sweater top. We love the idea of a one-shoulder sweater-knit top or a long-sleeve knit top with a neutral asymmetric colorblock to make the look a bit more contemporary. All you need is a pair of heeled boots to complete your outfit, and if it’s extra cold where you live, just add a pair of tights to keep you nice and toasty.

3.Simple Jumpsuit

If you’re not sure what to wear this New Year’s Eve, we are here to remind you that less is more when it comes to refined styles. That’s why you can’t go wrong with a classic jumpsuit on NYE. You are sure to look sleek and timeless, and jumpsuits are usually more comfortable, so you’ll be ready to dance the night away with your loved ones. We recommend pairing this New Year’s Eve outfit with a pair of strappy heels.

4.A Knit Set

Our next New Year's Eve outfit idea is a look that is casual yet pulled together at the same time, and it’s guaranteed to keep you feeling comfortable. A neutral tone matching knit set is the perfect option for a more laid-back NYE. Throw on a denim jacket, and you’re ready to enjoy your evening while feeling cozy and stylish. You can easily dress this outfit up with a pair of heels or down with some flats depending on the occasion. If you’re not sure about what to wear this New Year’s Eve, matching sets are always a great go-to!

5.Skirt + Top

If you’re looking for a more glamorous New Year’s Eve outfit, we love the idea of making a midi or maxi skirt the star of your look. It will add an exciting yet soft element to your outfit while allowing you to show off your waistline. What’s great about a piece like this is that you can pair it with practically anything—a fitted turtleneck, a simple crop top, and more. Don’t forget to pair it with jewelry and some heels to finish the look!

6.Satin Dress

A satin dress is an essential staple in the minimalist’s wardrobe that works for almost any holiday. What makes it such a great option to wear on New Year’s Eve specifically is that satin effortlessly elevates any outfit to a more luxurious level. Whether you opt to wear this style in a mini or midi dress, you can’t go wrong with this New Year’s Eve outfit idea. Pair it with a coat or a jacket to stay warm as you ring in the New Year.

7.Vegan Leather Pants + Oversized Sweater

Next up, we love the idea of pairing vegan leather pants with an oversized sweater for a refined and comfortable New Year’s Eve outfit. If you are heading out to a party, style this outfit with a pair of strappy heels or heeled boots. If you plan on having a more relaxed night, you can wear this outfit with your favorite pair of flats.

8.Statement Trousers + Top

For a less traditional New Year's Eve outfit idea, you plan your entire look around contemporary statement trousers. Sometimes it’s nice to think outside of the box with our holiday styles. With statement trousers, you will, without a doubt, stand out in the crowd for all the right reasons. We recommend you stick with neutral, rich colors for pieces like this. Then, you can pair it with almost any top. Elevate this style with a pair of patterned heeled boots or strappy heels.

9.Chic Loungewear

If you fall into this category and are not sure about what to wear for New Year’s Eve, throw on a chic and comfortable loungewear set. You can start the new year feeling relaxed and absolutely fabulous.
