What To Wear For New Years Eve 2017 | The Style Brief

The anticipation of New Year’s Eve often gathers quickly after Christmas festivities. If you are seeking sartorial inspiration for this year’s New Year bash, our Content Manager Jessica recommends some trend-chasing choices…

A Masquerade Ball

If you’re counting down the final hours of 2017 at a lavish ball in a fancy mansion in the country, lucky you. If this year’s NYE celebrations exude a high level of grandeur, ensure your ensemble reflects the ambiance. In other words, be your most opulent self. This genre of occasion demands a certain level of sartorial constraint – there are rules you must abide by. Your gown should be floor-length and you must wear a mask. Enter 2018 the right way in regal shades of gold, luxurious satin, and pearl jewellery.

A Suave Soirée

Heading to a friend’s party but still want to dress to impress? A floor-length dress is still very much agreeable – it’s New Year’s Eve after all. A navy silk number makes the ideal backdrop for a glass of bubbles in your hand. Team with a bolder heel to add a playful element and stay loyal to festive tones such as forest green or cranberry red. Modern jewellery will keep your New Year style up to date for the festivities and ensure that you’re looking on-trend as you celebrate the final hours of 2017.

A City Celebration

If you’re heading into the city to honour the final hours of the year in your favourite watering hole, you can afford to tame the opulence. Fuse tailoring with casualwear by throwing a double-breasted jacket over a smart rollneck – you can always take it off once you’ve reached the final bar for countdown. Step into 2018 with a polished pair of leather Chelsea boots. Both classic and practical for the wintry season, you’ll appreciate them as you wait at the taxi rank post-NYE festivities.

A Penthouse Party

If the most successful of your friends decides to throw a bash at their penthouse this New Year’s Eve, it’s time to ring in 2018 in style. In this instance, you need velvet. A midnight blue jacket appears less formal but still offers a jazzy vibe for the big night. Let a patent pair of Oxford shoes shine as you jive your way through the evening. Finish off this winning ensemble with a classic white pocket square neatly peaking out of the jacket and a timeless pair of well-tailored trousers. As Big Ben chimes, Auld Lang Syne begins and 2018 appears, you’re sure to feel tip-top in such a dapper get-up.
