What to Wear to a New Year’s Eve House Party

Who needs a big night out on New Year’s when some of the best parties are at home? If you are having friends over and want to look relaxed but party-ready, here are two fabulous looks for you!

1. Black Cropped Dressy Pants

A pair of classy black pants is always an excellent way to build a fabulous holiday party look, and these from Chicos are perfect. These gorgeous Juliette button-hem dress pants are a slim pull-on style from the leg to the knee. They have built-in stretch panels that go all the way around and fit like a glove.

I love the sexy crop to show off a pair of evening shoes, and those buttons at the ankle are such a chic detail! I’ve paired these pants with this elegant, soft Caviar Trim V-neck pullover. It’s got the tiniest sparkle, just enough to look glam on New Year’s Eve, but be able to wear anytime afterward, too!

Are you going to a friend’s house on New Year’s Eve? Slip on this modern turtleneck poncho with the leather shoulder snaps. It’s light-blended cotton and can even be worn indoors with something light underneath.

2. Feminine Ruffles

A pretty ruffled blouse with these chic dress pants is another easy, sophisticated look when you are the hostess or the guest! This pretty teal color makes this Poplin Ruffle neck Tunic!   It looks striking with all black. I love how the ruffles frame my face, and those turn-up cuffs add extra style.

Did I mention these darling pumps with sparkly holiday bows? A dressy evening shoe is essential to make your outfit party-ready! Don’t wear practical shoes to a New Year’s Eve party!


Sparkly, swingy earrings are also a great way to add a festive vibe to a chic outfit like this. These beaded clip-on tassel earrings are much bigger than I’d typically wear, but that’s the point. Go glam or go home. Have fun with your New Year’s Eve look!


Still Have a Few gifts to Deliver before New Year’s?

This cute cape I showed you also look fab with slim-leg jeans and black suede booties. Again, we’re seeing teal with black, and it’s such a fresh, Christmasy combination! Add a pretty chain bracelet and these link hoops earrings to uplevel this casual look.

Remember the button detail I told you about on this shawl? Well, here it is. See how it elevates this simple knit poncho and gives it a modern edge?

I hope this gives you a few ideas for what to wear to look casual and chic as you countdown the clock. Everything is linked. Click here for more casually glam New Year’s Eve outfit ideas.
