10 Things To Wear On NYE That Aren’t A Dress

It’s party time, besties! And you need something to wear. Although you don’t need an excuse to rock your favorite party attire — especially in the golden age of sequined tops and all-sheer-everything — New Year’s Eve is the perfect time to go full-glam and show off your most fashionable looks. 

New Year’s Eve outfits are usually synonymous with one thing; mini dresses. And while I love a good mini, why not wear something different this year? Whether it’s sequins or shine, pearls or velvet, there’s a stunning, party-ready outfit for any kind of style. Looking for something you’ll cherish for years to come? Score something chic or embellished, like a sequined chainmail crop top corset. If you’re more of a glamorous party goer, might I recommend a velvet pearl jumpsuit from the likes of ASOS? 

Whatever’s on the agenda for your New Year’s Eve, this list of pieces to style in your non-dress outfits will leave you with plenty of inspiration to put together your best look. 

Gold Chainmail Crop Top

This Lulus Rhinestone Chainmail Crop Top ($40) is the perfect piece to party in on NYE. Style it with gold accessories and heels, and this look will make for a simple yet stunning statement for a NYE party.

Sequin Tube Top

I’m in love with the bow detailing and midnight colors on the Free People Night Garden Sequin Tube Top ($68). Pair it with a mini skirt or a pair of leather pants and all eyes will be on you this NYE.

Faux Leather Mini Skirt

If you’re not a pants person, you have to add a leather mini skirt to your holiday festivities collection. This ASOS faux leather curved hem mini skirt ($35) is slim-fitting, high-rise, and perfect for NYE.

Denim Jumpsuit

It’s time to hop on the denim train! One of the new year’s hottest trends are gorgeous denim garments, and you can steal the style with this stylish ASOS denim power stretch halter neck jumpsuit ($71).

Velvet & Pearl Jumpsuit

I’ll admit it: I never want the pearlcore trend to end. This ASOS velvet bustier pearl flare jumpsuit ($135) is a timeless staple with some stunning details. Add a plain pair of heels and some pearl earrings, and you’ve got the perfect NYE look!

Layered See-Through & satin Tops

I meant it when I said I’m obsessed with pearls. This NYE, rock this elegant satin bandeau top ($36) under this pearl beaded see through top ($38), both from Etsy, for a stunning look.

Strappy Pant Set

This black Superdown Irene Strappy Pant Set ($98) from Revolve is perfect for a NYE party. Strappy and sexy, this set would be best complimented by your favorite jewelry and chicest heels for a gorgeous holiday look.

Skirt & Crop Top Set

Looking for a pop of color to add to your holiday outfit? Consider this vibrant blue Superdown Gianna Skirt Set ($78) from Revolve!

Purple Chainmail Top

A chainmail crop top is the obvious option for the coolest holiday parties. Pair this lively purple Windsor Daring Babe Chainmail Crop Top ($60) with your favorite mini skirt and voila! You have the perfect NYE look.

Sequin Mini Skirt

I’m obsessed with the Edikted Sabrina Low-Rise Mini Skirt ($42)! The sequined skirt paired with the brand’s Knitted Side Lace-Up Top ($19) makes for one hot holiday look.
