Prefer to keep things simple? Give your New Year’s Eve style a streamlined makeover by sticking with the tried and true. A plush velvet dress in a solid shade of winter white, evergreen, or cranberry looks timeless and fashion-forward. Just add a party clutch and some matching high heels to prove that basic doesn’t have to be boring.
Anxiously awaiting that New Year’s Eve kiss when the clock strikes midnight? Love is in the air with holiday looks that are big on romance. Fall head over heels in diaphanous chiffon dresses, velvet stilettos, ruby red accessories, and dark floral prints in full bloom.
Happy New Year!

How to Take Your Holiday Look From Day to Night
1. Family Celebrations
There’s no place like home for the holidays (and it just so happens to be the perfect place to wear your coziest winter staples). Cardigans, sweater coats, and ponchos layer with anything and everything to keep you warm… and they’re also good at disguising party outfits for evening festivities. Wear a short dress or a t-shirt and jeans with a long cardigan and ankle boots, and then switch to a nighttime look with the help of high heels and sparkly baubles.
2. Girls Night Out
Impress your squad with outfits that are as versatile as they are stylish. Re-work your office basics with a pair of over-the-knee boots, update a pair of skinny black pants with a shoulder-baring blouse and stilettos, or shimmy the night away in a playsuit and flats.
3. Work Events
Go from 9 to 5 (and beyond) by giving your work separates a little edge. Replace your LBD with a jumpsuit for an after-hours look that sizzles, or keep it classy and modern with a velvet blazer or animal print heels. Looking for a one-and-done piece that works for day or night? A black faux-leather skirt is your ultimate go-to.
4. Date Night
Love is in the air with romantic styles that are ready to mingle. Heat up a cold-shoulder dress with a velvet clutch and strappy high heels, or show some skin with an off-the-shoulder satin blouse. Going somewhere extra fancy? A little black dress and a fluffy faux-fur stole are a match made in heaven.
Quick & Easy Holiday Party Fashion Tips
Work it. Wear an asymmetrical dress or blouse under your favorite work blazer to go from work to play in a flash.
Glisten up. Sparkly jewelry gives casual basics just the right amount of shimmer and shine.
Aim high. Take an off-duty outfit to the big event by switching from ankle boots to high heels.
Pile on the style. The right outerwear can do more than help you dress for the elements. Cardigans are ideal for daytime events, while bomber jackets and kimonos breathe new life into traditional pieces.
Give yourself a hand. Switch things up by replacing your daily carryall with an embellished party clutch.
Mix and match. Cover plunging necklines with blanket scarves by day, or hide your stems with tights to make shorter hems more work-appropriate.
Heading home for the holidays, or jetting off to some tropical paradise during the holiday break? We’ve made your holiday packing checklist for you with all the travel essentials you need to stay fashionably cozy round-trip.
Tips for Comfortable Holiday Traveling
Pile on the style: One minute, it’s stuffy. The next, you’re shivering. Dress accordingly with a series of light layers that you can remove as needed. Start with a basic cotton tee, add a button-down shirt, and then top off the look with an oversized coatigan or cardi.
Treat your feet: Slip-on shoes, warm socks, and UGG boots are first-class footwear options for holiday travels.
Bundle up: A blanket scarf works overtime by doubling as a super-soft blanket or a warm scarf on demand.
Ditch your jacket: Hate the idea of wearing a bulky parka on the plane? Opt for an oversized cardigan or coatigan instead.
Pamper yourself: Air travel is known to do a number on the skin, and that dry cabin air isn’t doing your complexion any favors. Fight off the effects by bringing along beauty treats like lip balm, face masks, moisturizer, hydrating face mists, and hand cream.
Kick back and relax: An all-in-one travel set with an eye mask and a pillow is a dreamy way to turn lengthy flights into restful nights.

What to Wear
Holiday traveling is stressful, but choosing the right travel outfits doesn’t have to be. The key to staying comfortable while traveling without sacrificing style is keeping things in proportion. Pair slouchy knits and oversized sweaters with slim bottoms like leggings, jeans, or cuffed joggers. This visual balance prevents off-duty combinations from looking sloppy, and it’s figure-flattering for the best of both worlds.
Focus on soft fabrics, relaxed silhouettes, lightweight layers, and functional accessories that keep everything you need right at your fingertips. Mix and match the following pieces to build outfits long flights demand:
Tops: Pullover sweaters, t-shirts, tunics, button-down blouses, and turtlenecks
Bottoms: Joggers, jeans, and leggings
Outerwear: Light jackets, hoodies, ponchos, wraps, cardigans, and coatigans
Bags: Weekenders, crossbody bags, totes, and backpacks
Accessories: Blanket scarves, hair ties, and beanies
Shoes: Ankle boots, flats, sneakers, UGGs, loafers, and mules

Instantly transition your summertime tops and tees to your fall rotation with the help of a cropped military jacket.

Top it off with a colorful scarf, or add a two-tone wool baseball cap for a borrowed-from-the-boys look and feel.
Fall may be known for its signature color palette, but that doesn’t mean you have to limit your outerwear to neutrals and earth tones. Take a quilted blue bomber anywhere (and everywhere) with basic tees and lightly distressed denim in skinny silhouettes. Gold starburst earrings add a playful touch of luxe, while LBDs prove once and for all that blue and black are a match made in heaven.
Prima ballerina meets black swan with this cool-girl combination. Soft pastel hues get a seriously edgy makeover thanks to black leather leggings and moto jackets. Our women’s scarves, pompom beanies and cold-weather accessories fend off the elements in style, while dazzling jewelry and ruffled hems keep the overall look flirty and feminine.
Effortlessly upgrade your everyday style with unexpected textures and intricate details. Cold-shoulder tops and off-the-shoulder sweaters show the slightest hint of skin to keep you looking cool and feeling warm. Snuggle up in a tie-waist vest with striped details for just the right amount of rustic charm, or keep it casual with an all-American denim jacket with a cropped fit and frayed hem instead. Add leather-detailed gold earrings for an eclectic accent that’s fresh and modern, and finish the look with burgundy ankle boots or classic UGGs.
