NYE Party Outfit Ideas

Can you believe NYE is just around the corner? I put together 3 looks to help you plan out your outfit whether you're attending a formal black tie party or work party . Check out my holiday party lookbook series (here, here and here) for additional ideas. As a girly girl who loves finding an excuse to dress up, I definitely had a lot of fun getting dolled up this holiday season.

All the looks in this post and the holiday party lookbook series are under $150. I’m a big believer of affordable fashion. You don’t have to break your bank to look good. All the outfits I’ve shared on this blog are budget friendly. I’ll occasionally splurge on timeless pieces (i.e. handbags and trench coats) that I’ll wear over and over for years to come.

Look 1: Side Slits Maxi Dress

This gorgeous dress is perfect for formal black tie parties. I bought it a few years ago for a wedding but ended up not wearing it. It’s from Forever21 and paid less than $40. The material is soft like silk. I love how this dress accentuates my curves. The ruch details in the front create an illusion of a flat tummy. After having Jayce, I can use all the  help I can get in that department. The cutouts and side slits made this dress sexy without revealing too much skin. However, I made a slight adjustment to the front cutout to make it smaller using a safety pin.

Look 2: Velvet + Sequins

Sequins are perfect  for NYE parties. I usually shy away from them but for NYE, bring on all the sequins. You know I’m a big fan of velvet pieces, I had to include it in my NYE outfits. Velvet pieces are so beautiful, it was so easy to pair this deep v-neck bodysuit with a sequins skirt. I wore this exact same skirt last year. I got it on-sale for less than $20 from H&M. The velvet top is also from H&M. It was a recent purchase because I couldn’t help myself. I’m wearing a size 2 and wished I sized up to 4 because it’s pretty snug on me.

Look 3: Fit-and-Flare with Faux Fur

This fit-and-flare dress is perfect for work parties. I added a pink faux fur stole to glam up the look. The double bows on the shoulder is a touch of feminine detail which I adore. I’m a big fan of fit-and-flare dresses. They’re timeless and my go-to style for the office. It’s one of those styles that's flattering on any body type.

I hope you have a safe and fun NYE celebration. Thank you so much for reading.
