Tips on what to wear this New Year’s Eve 2023-2024 and be perfect!
What is the right attire to wear at the stroke of midnight to start a 2024 in the right gear?
How to dress this New Year’s Eve
Here are some useful suggestions depending on what kind of New Year’s Eve you will celebrate. At home with friends or family, somewhere elegant or informal, on vacation in the mountains etc…you’ll find the right ideas here!
At home with friends and family
Choose a jacket paired with a pocket square and not too sporty shoes. This outfit will also be perfect for the traditional family lunch.
A red handkerchief in your jacket pocket will be perfect for New Year’s Eve!
If you prefer casual style, choose to wear a vest by pairing it with an accessory, such as a tie and your usual jeans.
Denim, best dark. The shoe? Leather, lace-up and shiny. Leather belt that echoes the shoes. An important watch on the wrist.
As an alternative to a shirt, choose a turtleneck sweater that can also be worn under a jacket, or a patterned sweater with reindeer and ice crystals, which are worn again and again.
Velvet is also perfect for an elegant New Year’s Eve with family or friends. A great classic that never wanes.
If you want to be super stylish, but also particular, combine the rigor of this full-bodied fabric with a pair of slim-cut pants and finish the outfit with a nice pair of colored braces, perhaps in the same pattern as the pocket square that you can slip into the pocket of your jacket.
Or choose to complete the look by wrapping a fine wool scarf around your neck.
First of all, be sure not to get confused with the office look! Rather, an elegant evening out involves a dark suit to be paired with Oxford-style lace-ups. Or, a tuxedo or tailcoat, in case the dress code is Black tie, in the former case, or, White Tie, in the latter.
If you will be spending the vigil in a special, fun-filled location, avoid overly fancy clothes, but opt for something that is still elegant.
Look for a New Year’s Eve in the mountains
On the other hand, if you plan to spend Dec. 31 on a ski vacation, choose comfortable but mostly warm garments that allow you to dress in layers.
Don’t forget traditions
Popular tradition is to wear a red clothing accessory on New Year’s Eve to ensure serenity and good fortune for the New Year.
There are lucky charm amulets elegantly incorporated into everyday accessories, such as those offered by DM Ties.
To not overdo it, I suggest you choose a small detail in red: a pocket square, bow tie, scarf, tie etc.
The choice is entirely up to you.
