Flashy -There’s nothing wrong being “that guy” on NYE. I’m usually said guy. If you want all eyes on you then I suggest going for a bright suit/tuxedo option and balancing that all that out with a classic white dress shirt. You don’t want to overpower your suit so make sure your accessories are as understated as they are bold statements.
Go all the way by: making your look monochromatic like this from Carlos Campos.
$wagged Out - If you’re trying to look like a pretty flacko then a black on black ensemble is your only option. A blazer is a must because it dresses up whatever you’re wearing. The key to pulling this off is making sure every piece is sharp in it’s own right. For accessories, think go big or go home.
Go all the way by: opting fo leather pants.
Casual - There’s no reason to not dress up a bit just because you plan on keeping it low key for the night. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to be yourself, just be the best version of you. A simple cardigan can replace the go to blazer and the rest of your look can just be what you would normally where to a typical semi-cas (cajze?) event.
Go all the way by: not ending up in a gutter.
There’s so much New Year’s Eve hype flying around. It makes sense since it’s only 2 days away and the world might be ending next year blah blah blah. I’m pretty much worried about my outfit as I assumes you are as well. Well since it’s a night to shine don’t let the ladies have all the glory. Here are some sure-fire fashionable ways to ring in the new year bright.
Blinged Out Blazers- A little sequins here and there never hurt anyone. (Except that one dancer in Showgirls) If you read my last post on NYE dressing then you should know already that a blazer is a MUST. That being said this is the ultimate way of making yours stand out.
Watch The Throne- No matter what you wear you can still flaunt in a nice watch. NYE might be the only time (besides a rap video) to show off the jewels in your timepiece. As the very wise Jim Jones once said “I don’t buy watches for time, I buy watches for shine!”
Fancy Footwear- Strap on your best pair of dancing shoes to boogie in the new year. (Did I just use “boogie” seriously?) Even if all your clothes are understated and you aren’t a fan of the iced out watch on your wrist you can still let your shoes shine like a star. The bast part about this is that you can take this concept in a few different ways. You can go with spikes, sequins, or metallic leathers.
Now matter how you decided to shine make sure you have a fun & fashionable NYE!
- Me on New Years Eve last year.
Whether you are partying it up in an upscale lounge or your best friend’s basement I’ve compiled the basic elements to make any NYE outfit a hit no matter where you are.
The Blazer- 2011 was definitely the year of the dandy so you should end it like one. Open your horizons by opting for an interesting lapel with a different shape or contrasting color. Class it up by going or a white dinner jacket or change it up with a wool or velvet material.
The Shirt- You’ll need something to go underneath your perfect blazer. One can never go wrong with a classic solid colored shirt. If you want to add a twist to the classic then go with a shirt with a print such as a paisley or plaid. If you’re too cool for a collared shirt then a cool graphic tee is perfect or that IDGAF look.
The Trouser- Leave your jeans at home this New Years Eve because it is all about a slim fit trouser. If you plan on staying outside for a long period of time them a wool blend pant is super trendy and practical. A pop of color is perfect for the guy who wants to make a statement. I’m pretty particular to prints.
The Accessories- Nothing brings together an outfit like the right accessories. For a celebration as huge as this, many of the “style rules” go right out the door. It is a night of celebration and excess and your accessories should express it. Go wild! Be as flashy or as simple you want. Just make sure to look at yourself in your mirror before you leave the house to make sure that your outfit is everything you want to ring in the new year.
For some strange reason after you hit puberty New Years becomes a huge deal. Who are you spending it with? Where are you going? And most important, what are you going to wear? I plan on posting a guide to dressing for the big night this week but I thought I’d share my inspiration on outfitting myself to ring in the new year. Enter this editorial of Simon Nessman in Vogue Mexico Hombre.
The other day I gave you guys the perfect elements for a good NYE outfit. I do practice what I preach and followed my own guidelines. Keep reading for a full roundup. Continue reading
