You’ve read the 2019 recaps, made your reservations (and/or bought your club crawl tickets), and planned your resolutions — now all you have to do before New Year’s Eve is figure out what to wear.
As tempting it is to stay home on December 31, if you're on this page, you've already made up your mind. You're going out to celebrate New Year's Eve. That might mean attending something low-key, like a house party, or it might mean hitting up a snazzy venue near you, which requires a slightly more dressy look.
But since this New Year’s Eve isn’t just ringing in a new year, but a new decade, why not use the night as an excuse to give your go-to party look a bit of a refresh? So, what are the rules for New Year's Eve looks? Similar to Christmas, everything is more OTT (in the best way, of course) than the usual everyday party attire. Think sequins, feathers, rhinestones, velvet and the richest of colours.
