New Year's Eve dressing like a pro

 

Ah, New Year’s Eve. One of the trickiest nights of the year to plan, never mind to dress for. If the New Year is an indication of how the rest of the year will pan out, you want to start as you mean to go on, right? So to help us all on our merry way, we’ve pulled together a little guide to help you get dressed for the big occasion, whatever the kind of do you're going to. Did we mention it's the start of a new decade? No pressure or anything.

Destination: black tie

When else do you get to go to a black tie dinner in, well, black tie? New Year’s Eve is the ideal moment to get spruced up and grab yourself a great tuxedo that’ll be the source of many compliments. Want to try something a little bit different this year? Go for a subtle pattern or a statement jacket in wintry hues or lustre textures. Add a polished pair of Oxfords or Derbys and order your martini shaken, not stirred. James who?


Destination: the dinner

If you’re going to an event or fancy dinner and want to look suave but a tux is too much, try a slim cut grey, black or blue suit instead. The trick is to dress the suit down slightly, so wear the two piece with just one button done and a great skinny tie and shirt, do away with stiff collars altogether and opt for a simple crew neck and trainers. Alternatively, deconstruct your suit and pair the jacket with chinos, or the trousers with a t-shirt and bomber jacket. The options are plentiful and a hard-working suit will buy you some serious mileage.


Destination: the house party

If you’re heading down the party party/ going out route, get yourself a statement tee, some great fitting jeans (black and tapered are our current favourites) and some on-trend, clean-line trainers. Pair with a bomber jacket that’s not too warm, not too cold, or a parka to add to the coat pile. The aim is to look cool without any inkling you tried (as is always the aim in life).


Other party heroes include a rugged leather jacket, hiking boots (the ones you don’t actually use for mountaineering) and the failsafe indigo denim shirt. Fashion’s fanciest night of the year just got a whole lot simpler.
