Whatever your New Year’s Plans Are, Here’s How to Dress

Whilst our New Year’s Eve plans may be slightly more low-key than anticipated, the urge to ring in 2022 both safely and stylishly is naturally still there. Our plans may be pared back, but our outfits most definitely won’t be. So, regardless are you in, out, or planning ahead to 2023? Here’s our New Year’s Eve outfit inspiration for every situation.

The Great Outdoors

new year's eve outfits

Reversible Gilet: No. Eleven, £300; Cashmere Roll Neck: No. Eleven, £149; Leather Leggings: Max & Zac, £269; Leather Backpack: Rebecca Minkoff, £135; Hiker Boots: Oliver Sweeney, £116

Undoubtedly the safest way to celebrate, beat the chill (it is winter after all) in luxe layers and accessories as the ultimate cold-weather combination.

Invest in quality pieces to stay warm (you really will feel the difference), and truly feel the benefits over the years to come. This reversible shearling gilet is a two for one deal, and looks seriously chic with an oversized cashmere roll neck. Break up the black with a grey or neutral tone, then bring some structure to your ensemble with some fitted leggings – leather brings a contemporary, elevated edge.

When it comes to the finishing touches, choose practical-but-still-fashionable extras so you can get out and about in vogue and comfort. Hiker boots aren’t going anywhere, and Oliver Sweeney’s expert craftmanship continues to prevail. Keep it handsfree with a backpack for added ease – this Rebecca Minkoff one is great for everyday escapes.

At-Home Luxuriating

Black Jumper: Amanda Wakeley, £199; Tailored Trousers: Claudie Pierlot, £89; Slippers, Australia Luxe, £42

Just because your evening may be spent at home, it doesn’t mean a perfectly good outfit should be wasted. For minimal effort (and an understated elegance), match tailored trousers with a smart-casual knit; tuck it in to elevate your silhouette. We love this monochrome pairing as the ultimate timeless piece.

Keep footwear simple with some signature slippers. Fortunately, you can barely tell this Australia Luxe pair apart from shoes. Your accessories can remain simple, a delicate silver necklace, bracelet and your go-to rings complement the finished look perfectly.

Go For Glam

Black Blazer: Claudie Pierlot, £169; Dress: IRO, £139; Court Shoes: Sophia Webster, £158; Small Leather Bag: Celine, £1,315

Dining out or planning a small gathering with friends? Why not take the opportunity to get glam and put on the outfit you’ve been saving for best. Or, even better, simply try something new.

We know a black blazer is a forever-stylish investment, and this Claudie Pierlot one is a piece that will not be regretted. With an injection of print, the abstract print of this IRO dress, alongside the intricate metallic threading, adds a premium flourish.

For the finishing touches, go all out with haute accessories. Sophia Webster brings beauty with every pair of her shoes, whilst the crystal detailing is perfectly apt for New Year’s festivities. Your accessories should be cause for celebration – and is there anything more special than a Celine bag? We think not.
