One of those items is finding the perfect New Year’s Eve outfit. While this might seem like a piece of cake, it can actually be quite stressful (and overwhelming) to find the ideal look that  reflects your love of all glam but also celebrates outrageous prints  with a bit of an edgier flare. Now before you go running for the hills, we have created a style guide for you that shows you how to use a few edgy essentials to create a killer NYE outfit we know you’ll love.  

Leather up for some rock ‘n’ roll

Raw and untamed – that’s the spirit of a biker girl who rocks her awesome rugged leather jacket with a bold red dress or stunning golden pant and a black silk blouse tucked in. This look would be perfect for a party at your friend’s place or a NYE bash.

Tips on Rocking the Look: Your leather jacket is your star piece so you have to accentuate the look. One of our favorite ways to do so is to opt for the Rihanna-inspired street style by pairing a leather jacket with ripped jeans and designer boots. Finish off the outfit with a  smokey eye and ombre red lips. 

Shimmery Eyes

Nothing sings festive like some glitter and some glow! And if you’re already a master of the glam look, then this will definitely be right up your alley. But even you’re usually a more natural makeup type gal, you can still rock this look by adding just a bit of glittery eyeshadow on the center of your eyelids for a pop of glam. 

 Tips on Rocking the LookForgo your boring matte eyeshadow for a touch of silver glitter on the eyelids instead.  Emphasize those glittery eyes with fabulous accessories like a silver clutch purse or a pair of daring silver boots.

Awaken your inner goth princess

Some find the long backless dress and a pair of leather ankle boots enough edge, but for the boldest among you, there’s a dark, sexy goth that lurks behind that sweet smile. And what better way to unleash your most confident self, than with the help of gorgeous gothic costumes that will leave everyone in awe!

Tips on Rocking the LookThis is something you don’t wear without an accompanying assertive attitude, and that will be your best accessory with such a lush, daring outfit. So, pick your favorite pair of Morticia-worthy pantyhose and festive choker of your choice. Let your inner goth prevail!

Be a velvet queen

For those of you who prefer a more delicate, but equally sassy take, velvet is going to be a great style you’ll love

Tips on Rocking the LookA velvet dress is a powerful way to make a statement, but it isn’t the only velvet piece sure to make a splash. One of favorite ways to wear velvet is to rock velvet shoes or jackets. Not only do they add a bit of unique flair, they go deliciously well with anything and everything – from ripped jeans, classy suits, to your already rebellious leather jacket.

Suit up with style

One of our favorite things to do is to get inspiration from the men’s wardrobe. Remember Harvey Specter? I mean, who doesn’t? Now that man can pull off a suit like no other, and we’ve picked up on that sleek look vibe for a fun, unique take on the NYE get up.

Tips on Rocking the LookPantsuits are all the rage this season. The best part is that there is no rule that stops you from choosing one for NYE. However, if you’re going to go this route, we suggest you opt for one that is tailored to you. And if it has any small quirky embellishments even better.

Loving the velvet and metallics these days, they look so good and not that difficult to create and outfit since they usually stand out fairly easily.


Nice! you gave me an idea on what to wear in NYE. I already have a leather jacket. Might learn how to do that metallic/sparking make up. And I hope I can pull it off wearing a pantsuit.
