Permission granted—go glam, even without the gala to go to. Ringing in 2021 definitely looks different than New Year’s Eves of the past, but that doesn’t mean you can’t dress up to chill out. We’re rounding up our favourite fashionable pieces to party in, even when you’re hanging out at home. —Jeanine Gordon
A chic blouse is a must-have for counting down to the new year in style. Pair this Self Portrait ruffled lace corded top with faux leather leggings or a satin skirt (or even your sweats for a party-on-top look) for all the glamour you need to create ($248 at Blubird) an elegant evening. Lace, chiffon, and jewel buttons are the over-the-top details we need to feel festive.
Part of your wants to dress in a party-worthy look, but comfort is also calling. A stylish solution is the Sequin Tee Dress ($39 at Joe Fresh) that lets you shimmer and shine even if your night calls for couch time rather than clubbing.
For the woman who doesn’t mess around with watching the ball drop in a bold outfit, this Ten by Babaton Fire jumpsuit ($75 at Aritzia) is the ultimate show-stopper to impress on Instagram while popping champagne from the couch. The bright fuchsia hue and wide-leg silhouette give us major dance floor déjà vu as we toast 2021.
Your night of takeout and movies goes to the next level with the Starry Night velvet jacket ($30 at Simons) that checks all the boxes for New Year’s eve style. We can see this blinged-out blazer paired with anything from a sequined skirt to yoga pants (this is 2020, after all) and we see it as a chic topper for any evening ensemble.
There’s something about New Year’s Eve that makes us crave sparkle, making this silver-hued midi skirt ($149 from Club Monaco) ideal for that metallic midnight mood. Whether you wear it with a cami and heels or a sweatshirt and slippers, it’s the perfect piece to wear to ring in 2021.
If there’s one thing we learned in 2020, it’s that the right accessories can instantly elevate even the most casual outfit. As we wait for the clock to strike twelve, add these Oscar de la Renta enamel hoop earrings ($375 at Nordstrom) as a chic addition to anything you wear to welcome in the new year.
