New Year’s Eve is less than a week away and by the sounds of my inner circle, most folks haven’t even decided on what their doing, let alone what they’re wearing!

Last week, we provided you all with a list of NYE parties and events going on in the DC area and today I’m here to offer up a little wardrobe guidance.

The theme of New Year’s Eve is glam. Always. And I love it that way! Sparkles, glitter, sky high pumps, fitted, dapper suits, and your Sunday’s best… bring it out to kick off the new year, the right way!

For the ladies

If dresses are your thing, you can’t go wrong with an all sequined number. This is the one time of year where noone will be giving you the side-eye, wondering where you could be headed shining like a 70’s disco ball! From lower end to high end, seems like most designers have a dress or few that fit the bill. Check these options out for some inspiration.


One shoulder gold sequined dress from The Outnet – $160

Karmel blue sequined dress from Alice + Olivia – $595

By Malene Birger multi-colored sequined dress – $591

Black & gold long sequined gown by Jenny Packham – $3645

Asos sequin dress – $67.72

Alice + Olivia GiGi green sequin gown – $598

Maybe all sequins isn’t your thing, and that’s okay. Glittery/sequin shorts, pants, tops or skirts can also offer that festive pop!


*All of these tops would be great paired with leather leggings/jeans!*

Rebecca Taylor sequined peplum bustier – $395

Asos sequin tunic – $62.44

Catalina sequined silk top from DVF – $192.50

Chan Luu sequined v-neck blouse- $332

I.N. San Francisco lace & sequined peplum top – $36


For shorts and skirts, add opaque tights to keep you warm and elongate the leg!

Asos hot pant jumpsuit – $77.61

Rachel Roy Lara jumpsuit – $139

Haute Hippe gold sequined silk jumpsuit – $240.02

Greylin sequin embellished shorts – $54.60


Skirts and pants pair well with solid colored tops and blazers to protect you from the chill!

Michael Michael Kors grey sequin leggings – $87.50

Blank sequined skinny pants – $29.40

Rachel Zoe black sequined maxi skirt – $374

Haute Hippie sequined mini skirt – $375

And we all know, a killer shoe is essential for NYE!

Aldo Gabay – $62.99

Pour la Victoire Zimmer – $125

Sergio Rossi nude platform pump – $496.23

SGN Giancarlo Paoli blue sequined pumo – $118

Victoria’s Secret Colin gold sequin pump – $99.99

Christian Louboutin Bianca – $1695

Jessica Simpson Devin black sequin pump – $98

Accessorize with bold, glamorous pieces. Think chunky rings with plenty bling and bangles!

For the fellas

Per usual, you all are pretty easy. My only advice to you all is to embrace the slim suit! Slim suits are your friend! No matter where you’re going, the right slim suit with a great tie will have you  turning heads.
