What to Wear New Years Eve: Dressing Up or Keeping It Casual

by | Style

I don’t know about you but I sure am ready to ring in a new year! Let’s kiss 2020 goodbye in style! We have all celebrated lots of special occasions at home this year so dressing up and staying in is the new norm. All dressed up and nowhere to go but so happy about it!

Whether your New Year’s Eve style is cozy with a little shimmer, dressed up denim or full on glam, I have rounded up some great ideas for you.

Sweater / Champagne Slip Skirt / Stuart Weitzman Sandals / Earrings / Bracelets / Necklace See more of my Holiday Jewelry Collection with Hazen here.

This cozy sweater and champagne slip skirt are the perfect combination of cozy and glamorous. I wore this sweater several weeks ago when we took my middle daughter to visit the University of Oklahoma for the Baylor/OU football game. It is soft and warm and it’s such a great price. It is a new staple in my closet. The slip skirt is from a website that is new to me and filled with great style at unbelievable prices. My daughters and I all find things we like on this site. This designer inspired dress is from there and so many of you also purchased it.

Velvet Blazer / Black Denim / Stuart Weitzman Sandals / Hazen Bracelet Trio / Gold Alicia Necklace / Earrings

This beautiful classic velvet blazer from Draper James is the perfect way to dress up your denim and will be a piece I will reach for for years. I’ve paired it with a black V-neck sweater and my favorite black denim.

Red Velvet Dress / Sandals / Silver Margaret Bracelet / Silver Alicia Necklace / Alicia Triple Earring

I have two options for all out glam! The first is this ruby red velvet dress also from Draper James. They reimagined this classic style in a rich red.  The cut and fit are an absolute dream. The bows on the shoulder are the perfect finishing touch. I also have this dress in black I love it that much!

White and Gold Silk Dress / Sandals / Hazen Bracelet Trio / Alicia Necklace / Earrings

You know I’m a big fan of Lilly Pulitzer and this snow white dress with gold shimmery highlights is absolutely stunning! The lightweight silk crêpe is accented with gold lurex and lined in silk. This is a gorgeous dress for all seasons.

The boutique below you will find many more options for your New Year’s Eve celebration. Let’s turn the page on 2020 as we look forward hopefully and expectantly to an amazing 2021!
