For me, New Year’s Eve is about dressing up – even when I’m planning to ring in the new year sitting on my couch. As far as I’m concerned, you can never be overdressed or be wearing too many sequins and jewels when that countdown rolls around. But putting together that perfect New Year’s outfit can be overwhelming. You have to consider where you’re going, of course, and also keep your budget in mind. Plus, you always want to show off your unique style.

Start by shopping your closet first then add the pieces you’re missing. Below, you’ll see some mix and match options from my closet, featuring some of my favourites from Ted Baker’s Holiday Collection. Whether you’re planning to go out or stay in this New Year’s Eve, these wardrobe ideas will fit right into your plans.

Chic & Comfy Party Outfits for New Year’s Eve

Dance the Night Away

All set to kick up your heels? Nothing is more chic or effortless for a party night out than a classic little black dress (LBD). I have a little black Lida Baday number in my closet that pairs perfectly with a coloured fur jacket and a jewelled clutch. Faux furs have come a long way and they add a whimsical touch to your hit-the-town outfit, especially in this rich bordeaux tone. lbd plus 1 Still looking for a great LBD but want something edgy? I love this black leather dress from Ted Baker. Especially when paired with gold accents, it’s a smart and sexy way to usher in the New Year.  gold _detachable front clutchNavlig_Black Snake

Enjoy A Dinner Soiree

Dinner parties at home or at a favourite restaurant surrounded by your family and friends are a great way to usher in another year. Use separates to combine black and gold with a textured full skirt and sweater. Here, I added fun accent pieces to kick the look up a notch – a jewelled belt and bracelets. new year cheer 1 If you’re looking for something more fun than black, why not try metallics – specifically gold? Adding texture to tonal dressing is what makes it interesting and fresh. Plus, these pieces will work with almost anything in your closet.  KARSIE - GOLD

A Quiet Night In

New Year’s Eve is never too quiet, but if you find yourself at home for an intimate evening in, you’ll still want to find a way to look and have fun. This Club Monaco bejewelled pink top is a show stopper and is especially elegant when paired with casual boyfriend jeans. Sparkle & Couch Want something more cozy? Then knits are the way to go. Comfort and fashion are where it’s at for a quiet evening at home. Try these mixed media tights from Ted, paired with a knit tunic. Why settle for basic black tights when there are so many options? To finish off this look, add a touch of pink with cute, comfortable shoes, like these patent flats topped with a festive bow.     Narea_Light pink black
