New Year’s Eve is the one night of the year when you can really pull out all the stops. Whether you plan on going for a few drinks with friends, painting the town red, or simply going somewhere to watch the fireworks, make sure your outfit is out of this world. We have listed some of the best statement looks and accessories below that are perfect for different NYE settings.

New Year’s Eve Fireworks


If you’re planning on welcoming in the New Year by going to a local fireworks display, you’ve probably started to think about what you’re going to wear. After all, it’s a fancier occasion than Bonfire Night but you still want to stay warm in the depths of winter.

Bridge the gap between comfort and fashion with an on-trend dress, a stylish coat, and a pair of long boots. This is a simple yet NYE-appropriate outfit, as you can be as fancy as you like with your choice of dress, while still remaining warm thanks to your coat.


Pippa Coat from Boden, priced at £119.40


Gabor Maybe S long boot from Charles Clinkard, priced at £155

NYE cocktails


If you’ve arranged to spend New Year’s Eve indulging in a few cocktails with friends, make sure you’re dressed to impress. Nothing epitomises New Year more than sequins, so why not team a sparkly cami or swing top with a pair of understated leggings. The subtlety of the leggings will balance out the vibrant colours of the top, while also keeping your warm against the elements.    


Twinkle Twinkle sequin top from Great Plains, priced at £85

Night on the town


For many people, New Year’s Eve represents a chance to let your hair down and have a great night on the town. Team a velour dress with a statement clutch bag to remain stylish and seasonally appropriate. For more accessory inspiration, you can see a round-up of some of our favourite statement clutch bags here.
