What wear on New Year’s Eve depends foremost on your plans, where you live, and what kind of transportation you plan to use. To get the idea, wearing a strapless long evening gown with a little faux fur stole and strappy 4 inch (10 cm) heels in a blizzard in New York guarantees you to start the New Year with a cold even when it is only five blogs to the opera. Take a cab!
Outfits for on the town
The photo below gives a suggestion for New Year’s Eve looks for walking from one bar to the next when you live some where down south. Take a coat and it also works for nasty rainy weather, with a down coat or shearling you are good also at below freezing temperatures when you have a big bag that holds your dance shoes.
Sports Bar outfit
The next photo gives inspiration for an evening in a sports bar. The long sleeves, buttoned shirt and tights are not overly exposing skin to the cold and the views, and the shorts are festive, but go with the sport theme.
New Year’s Eve dinner at a winter resort
Many winter resorts have dinning rooms with an open fire. One never knows where one will be seated for dinner. Close to the fire it may be comfortable or even too hot. Far away, it may be too chilly for a cocktail dress. To stay on the safe side and not freeze or have to fight with a stole while eating wear a lace top under your lace cocktail dress as is shown in the photo below.
Dance party at a tropical resort
A black floral asymmetric hem dress is sultry and cannot be mistaken as your beach dress. Put on some silver or leopard high heels and you are ready for an Argentine Tango with the macho of your choice ;).
