Countdown to 2024 With These 25 New Year’s Eve Looks

Fashion

The halls are decked with Christmas decorations, last-minute shoppers are bustling to find the best gifts on Amazon, and the Home Alone franchise is playing on cable twice a day, every day. Yes, that’s right: The holiday season is here. It’s a time when festive fashion is heavily calculated, including the coup de grâce of holiday party attire: New Year’s Eve outfits.

For the glam girls, New Year’s Eve signifies the go-ahead to proudly display the oft-sequestered charm of sequins, glitter, faux feathers, and head-to-toe metallics. In short, more is more. Contrast your favorite jeans with an embellished clutch or experiment with unexpected colors and textures. Even if you’re staying in à la Carrie Bradshaw and Miranda Hobbes (or if 9 P.M. is your midnight), you can still bundle up in a cozy sweater and an added statement accessory to end 2023 in style. Below, shop the 25 best New Year’s Eve ensembles inspired by past and present street style looks, as well as some of the best 2024 trends.

Realistically, most of us probably don’t make as big a deal of New Year’s Eve as blockbusters and sitcoms would have you believe (cue Monica and Ross Gellar). So if you’re staying in or are just a proponent of pure comfort, choose cozy winter staples that you can live in on any day of the season. If you still want to pay homage to the celebrations, choose a colorful scarf or a pair of cashmere socks.

Some trends live on for a reason, others only for a season. But one that’s here to stay is sheer fashion. Add a touch of romance to a risqué look with a rosette choker or belt. Free the nipple if you wish, or opt for nude undergarments as added insurance.
