NYE Outfit Inspiration

 photo NYE Looks_zpsx5a0xqpi.jpg

New Years Eve is one of my favorite holidays to dress for because I love sequins and I love velvet and both are the perfect picks for NYE! While I love dressing up and going out, I also love staying in and wearing comfy clothes just as much. Whether you have a fancy party to go to, just love sparkles or are staying in; I got you covered. ;) Here's my 7 favorite looks for NYE:

Sequin Dress // Velvet Clutch // X Ring // Kendra Scott Earrings // Michael Kors Watch // Essie 'Fiji' // Ankle Strap Pumps // Gold Twist Bangle // Smashbox Lip Gloss 'Deep Red'

This. Dress. I can't even take how pretty it is! It comes in pink too and it has such a fun criss-cross back. It's pretty busy, so I love deep red/burgundy tones with it (like this gorgeous clutch bag) and simple jewelry.

Cluster Stud Earrings // MAC Eye shadow 'Girls, girls' // Bangle // Bell Sleeve Top // Sequin Skirt // Oval Ring // MAC 'Fleshpot' // Ankle Strap Heels

The only thing better than sequins is sequins with tulle! And the bell sleeved top comes in a few colors, but in person this one is more of a cream/off white shade so it looks so pretty with the skirt!

Glitter Block Heels // Double Band Ring // Shimmer Asymmetric Top // Black Cropped Pants // Statement Earrings // MAC 'All Fired Up' // Tory Burch Clutch // Michael Kors Watch

When I found this top at Zara in the city a few weeks ago I could not resist getting it. I love everything about it *and* it's comfortable to wear and not annoying like some asymmetric shirts like this can be. It's simple but shimmery and it's currently on sale for $35! Since it's pretty simple, I love it with nice black pants and a fun heel like these pretties! And no color goes better with black and glitter than hot pink; this Tory Burch clutch is a newer Tory item and it comes in a few colors... The best part is it's under $200!

'Find Me at Midnight' Shirt // Sparkle Slippers // Cozy Jogger Pants // Polka Dot Champagne Flute // Throw Blanket

I mean this cozy outfit is making me lazy just thinking about it! I bought a ton of these super cozy pants on Black Friday and let me tell you, you need them in your life. There's a ton of fun colors/patterns and they're possibly the softest pants I own! And if you're staying in on New Years Eve, you *need* a cozy blanket - no questions asked!

Black Block Heels // Statement Necklace // White Satin Tank // Metallic Pleated Skirt // Ring // Essie 'Fine Me A Man-Nequin' // Jouer 'Skinny Dip' Lip Gloss // Kate Spade Crossbody

This skirt is another fun Zara find and it comes in a pretty gold/pale pink too! I love it with fairly simple jewelry (this jeweled necklace does the job!) and these Steve Madden block heels may just be the most comfortable pair of heels in the world. I originally bought them in the tan/cognac shade and I most recently added these black ones to my closet because they're super practical and super cute.

Fuzzy Slippers // Beaded Bracelets // Ankle Wrap Leggings // 'How Merlot Can You Go' Sweatshirt // Glittery Hair Clip

Another super comfy look - I just love this sweatshirt! It's hysterical and it's really cozy to wear! These fun leggings come in a ton of colors and they're so practical - I buy a new color whenever they go on sale!

Embellished Heels // Sequin Top // Black Jeans // Embellished Hair Pins // Kendra Scott Cuff // Crystal Statement Bracelet // Velvet Knot Clutch // YSL Lip Stain #401

You may notice this look from my holiday outfit inspiration post I put up a few weeks ago. It's so good that I HAD to repeat it for NYE looks! It's still one of my favorites and it's probably my favorite. The sequin top has the prettiest velvet bows in the back and it's super flattering. And my favorite black heels are on sale, so grab them while you can!

Some more sparkly favorites (dresses are all under $100!) for New Years Eve:

What are your NYE plans? Whether you're going out or staying in, you can still look festive and have fun! Staying in for NYE is actually one of my favorite things to do. I love watching the ball drop on TV! You couldn't pay me enough to go to the city on New Years Eve - I always used to want to (especially since I live so close) but as I get older the more I realize how miserable that would be; especially since it's almost always freezing!



  1. I can't get over the first black sequin number - it's actually one of the most, dare I say, beautiful sequin dresses I've ever seen.

  2. Wow love the 2 pant combos both very me and really lovely all together. Great work

  3. You will find me in those stylish PJ's!!!! Hahah!

  4. I seriously love all of these looks! I think the 2nd one is my favorite though! I'll probably be in my PJs and home this year :) Thanks for sharing.

  5. I love all of these! I need to get those glittery house slippers quick - because that's pretty much how I plan to spend New Year's Eve!

  6. I love the silver skirt and white top outfit and the heels with glitter... but my favorite is that first dress! It's beautiful for a more formal event!


  7. I love how you created outfits for every type of person, they are beautiful! I think I would go with outfit #1

  8. You have such great style! I really like outfit #5!

  9. YAS YAS YAS to all the sequins and silver sparkles! Love this!

  10. I LOVE that sweatshirt! Anything glitter and sequins is perfect for NYE!

  11. I have a strong feeling that my husband and I will be sporting the cozy outfit this NYE! We're not party-goers, so it only makes sense to be in our loungewear. Hahaha!

  12. Absolutely DYING for that red velvet clutch! It would look so chic with some black and gold!

  13. I would love to wear the top option! I love it is a black sparkly dress with the pops of red to the outfit! Chances are I will end up in the "Find me at Midnight" combo, because I never really made plans. Probably binge watch something on TV or play video games with my brother. :)

  14. I am more on the no-heels outfits but I also don't mind dressing up on New Year! It's awesome to welcome the year in style and these outfits are the bomb! ---For Elizabeth O.

  15. So many cute outfits! The first and last are my favorite :)

  16. That sparkley pink skirt is everything! Great picks.


  17. All of these outfits are to die! I'm all about sequins and sparkle but something about that really comfortable one is looking more like me on NYE. Great picks!

  18. Okay, I'm TOTALLY buying the find me at midnight tee - that is SO cute and perfect for our NYE plans this year - snacking and snuggling!
