Which sparkly outfits are best for New Year’s Eve?

New Year’s Eve, and 2023, are only days away. If you have big plans for the night but haven’t yet figured out what you’re going to wear, you need to move fast. Not only to ensure that what you order will arrive in time for your event but also to ensure there are still suitable options left. You also need to decide how sparkly you want to go, as it’s easy to go overboard and make yourself look like a human disco ball.

In this article: Mangopop Mesh Shirt, Tipsy Elves Leggings and Pacinoble Cardigan.

Sparkly options

When it comes to dressing sparkly for New Year’s Eve, there are more options in clothing made for female body types than clothing made for male body types. Women’s clothing has all manner of tops and bottoms, not to mention accessories and dresses. Men have the occasional shirts but are otherwise more restricted to accessories such as ties and watches.

New Year’s Eve event types

There are countless ways to celebrate the turn of the year, but some events are more common than others.

  • Homebody: There’s absolutely nothing wrong with staying home for New Year’s Eve. You might have work the next day, could be feeling under the weather or just not like partying. That doesn’t mean you can’t wear comfy sparkly clothes to celebrate before going to bed early.
  • Friends and family: If you like to celebrate with loved ones instead of strangers, you need to match the energy of the group. For example, you might want to dress to the nines if your friends are planning a big bash. You could also need to keep it simple if you’re celebrating with family, including younger kids.
  • I own this city: If you prefer to dance, drink and otherwise live life to the loudest at your favorite clubs, you need to dress to impress. Wear that shimmering dress or that special sequined tie. Who knows who you could meet.
  • Professional: If your New Year’s Eve is being spent with coworkers or you’re attending a major networking event, your look should be refined. Think sparkly highlights rather than sparkly focused.
