New Year's Eve parties include formal, semi-formal, after-five, cocktail and casual events, so go bold with a sparkly outfit. For conservative parties, select a black tuxedo or full-length silver or metallic gown. For more formal occasions, choose clothing in luxurious fabrics, such as velvet or silk.

For men's accessories, wear a silver tie clip or top hat. Select dressier ties like a burgundy silk or black satin. Wear lace-up oxfords or leather loafers in holiday colors, and wear a velvet or wool jacket over a button-up shirt. For cold weather, wear a long coat with a cashmere scarf and gloves.

For women's accessories, carry a rhinestone clutch or metallic leather purse. Wear glitter or high-gloss nail polish with a cocktail ring. Wear an elegant fascinator hat with sparkly earrings and dramatic makeup. For winter nights, wear a tailored overcoat or shawl.
