The countdown is on to 2022. New Year’s Eve is one of our favourite times of the year. After the chaos of 2021 (and 2020!), we’re all ready to celebrate in style. While it might be another quiet New Year’s Eve, there’s no reason why you can’t get dressed up to mark the occasion.
New Year’s Eve is a chance to channel your glamorous side and embrace all the sparkles. While the festive season is in full swing, it’s not too late to put together a last-minute New Year’s Eve outfit. These outfit ideas will help you have your own Cinderella moment before we wave goodbye to 2021.
Thanks to the latest COVID variant, some of us won’t be heading out for a New Year’s Eve party. It’s no excuse though to sit around the house in your yoga pants. Go all out and get dressed up in your party-worthy sleep wear. We love the feather-trimmed PJs from Sleeper. You can style them with sparkly heels or your cosiest slippers. This NYE outfit is one that you’ll want to post all over your Instagram feed.
It’s the most glamorous – and cosiest – way to see in the new year with a champagne glass in hand. You could even style these PJs for a friend’s NYE party if you’re celebrating together.
While we love dresses, New Year’s Eve can be cold. A sparkly jumpsuit is the answer to all our prayers. It’s right on trend as a classic ‘80s silhouette and it’s a fuss-free look that is perfect if you’ve left your NYE planning until the last minute.
While black and silver is the most popular colour scheme for NYE, don’t be afraid to think outside the box with a neon or pastel shimmer. Look out for a sparkly jumpsuit that has a stretchy material to make it easier to dance the night away.
Feminine power dressing works all-year round, including New Year’s Eve. Look out for a matching two-piece suit in your favourite sparkly colour. Gold is a go-to for NYE but as long as it shimmers, you’re good to go! What makes this NYE look stand out is the daring choice of showing off a lace bra under the blazer. Don’t forget to finish your last-minute NYE outfit off with a red lipstick.
When in doubt, go with a little black dress. You’re guaranteed to have one in your closet and it’s the ultimate last minute NYE look. Style your dress with sheer tights and pointed-toe heels for an elevated look to elongate your legs. You can add a tweed or sparkly blazer to layer up and bring along your essentials in a mini bag.
A metallic skirt screams New Year’s Eve. It’s the perfect last-minute purchase that can bring the party to your otherwise minimalistic look. You want to let the metallic skirt take centre stage by wearing neutral shades elsewhere in your outfit. This button-up white blouse is effortlessly chic and the white knee-high boots add an ‘80s-inspired twist to the disco-worthy outfit. While we love this pink metallic skirt, you can choose any neon shade that works for you.
Stand out from the crowd by embracing bridal chic. You don’t have to be saying ‘I do’ to experiment with white. We love this Parisian-inspired NYE look that incorporates a simple white silk dress with an oversized blazer. The layered gold jewellery helps to warm up the outfit and gives it a celebrity-worthy look. This is the last-minute New Year’s Eve outfit we would wear for dinner in the city or a romantic getaway.
A red dress is a festive season must-have – and not just for Christmas. Red is a colour that represents good luck and fortune in Chinese culture, making it the perfect choice to wear when you walk into 2022. If you don’t have a red dress in your closet, treat yourself to one as an end of year treat.
Let the dress take centre stage by keeping the rest of your accessories minimalistic. Gold heels will help make your red dress pop and elongate your legs. Don’t forget to bring along a clutch bag to carry your essentials – including your NYE themed photo props!

That means going to as many family get-togethers, cocktail parties, and Christmas dinners as we can fit into your Google Calendar!
When we need fashion inspiration, TikTok is always our first port of call. With the holidays right around the corner, we’re all getting our wardrobe ready for days of ice skating, present wrapping, and meeting up with friends.

These pieces can help you build a capsule wardrobe and turn even a casual work from home look into an elevated outfit. Open the note section of your phone and start jotting down these must-have pieces for your 2021 closet.
