What to Wear on New Year's Eve

This New Year's Eve, spend less time trying to cook up a party outfit and more time drinking champagne. Just follow one of these easy templates below and you'll look good no matter where you're going. (Which is a great reason to crack open a bottle of carbonated alcohol. But so is the start of a new year, I suppose.)

Cocktail Party

If you want to feel really, really glamorous, rent an on-trend dress by a big name designer. Digital print + Prabal Gurung = ideal.

Cocktail Party

When going the always polished, always easy all-black route, don't forget a punchy lipstick. It'll make your outfit a little more festive.

Casual

If your plans involve more Solo cups than champagne flutes, go ahead and wear a sweater and jeans. Opt for a knit with a cool print like this one, and crisp white denim instead of standard blues. You'll stand out without looking try-hard.

Black Tie

Don't bother buying a gown you won't wear more than twice a year (max?) anyway. Rent one instead, and splurge on a really fabulous one like this Jennifer Lawrence-approved style. (You'll get to tell everyone you're wearing Calvin Klein, which is always fun. Or so I imagine.)

Semi-Dressy

For in-between dress codes, mix a fancy pair of pants and a sharp jacket with a more casual element or two: a t-shirt, maybe, or perhaps some flats. That sort of eclectic mix is perfect for so many occasions.
