You want to have fun, right? Better dress like it.
NYE is a hallowed night every year. Some of us love it, some of us don’t. Regardless of which side you fall on, if you have plans this year, you’d better be sure you’re dressing right.
The first thing to consider are your plans themselves. If you’re going over to a friends house with your lady friend and there’s only going to be four people there, you don’t need to get all dolled up. Whereas if you’re heading to a club and paid $50+ just to get in the door, then you’d better dress for the occasion. Here are some tips based on plans. If you’re…
Taking It Easy
One of the most underrated ways to spend NYE is with a few close friends and a couple bottles of champagne. You get to skip the crowds and save some $$, but it’s also going to be impossible to meet someone if you’re in the market, so there are ups and downs depending on your situation. If these are your plans, consider a pajama themed party. Something that will keep you extremely comfortable and relaxed while watching the ball drop is a great way to start 2018 off right.
Going All Out
If you and your boys are doing it big this year, which is also a great option if done properly, then you better dress accordingly. A casual version of a tuxedo is a great option. Go with a classic black tux but lose the tie, leave the top 3 buttons of your shirt undone, and sub in some dark sneakers if the venue you’re attending allows for them in the dress code. This way you’ll look great but also be comfortable enough to enjoy letting loose with your friends.
Going On a Date
NYE is actually an extremely popular date night, so if you’ve decided to try and woo that young lady from your gym, then your outfit is extremely important. Depending on where you’re taking her, dress in some black jeans, a black casual button up and a black blazer. The all black aesthetic is extremely stylish for a night like NYE, but it’s much less formal than going with a full suit thanks to the jeans. The worst thing you can do is make your date feel stuffy or underdressed because you decided to wear a full suit and tie.
