Any other year, a roundup of the best New Year’s Eve outfit ideas for cold weather would include suggestions for how to pair sequin pieces and coats, and recommendations for the best winter boots that you can survive a night out on the town in—but this year, my friends are very different indeed. We are, after all, still living in the middle of a pandemic. And while we’ve adjusted to wearing cute face masks and nailed our work from home style, it feels as if some part of this year was lost, especially for those of us who love to dress up.
But I’m here to tell you that you can still serve a look this New Year’s Eve, especially from the comfort of home. You don’t have to be out on the town to say sayonara to a spectacularly strenuous year—you can parade around your living room in your best look because you deserve to feel good. But if the thought of wearing anything but sweatpants is off-putting, I implore you to keep reading as I’ve rounded up the best New Year’s outfit ideas that are great not only for cold weather but an evening spent cozily inside and run the gambit from doing very little to doing the most. If you don’t want to ditch your sweatpants after seeing these outfit ideas, then I hope you’ll bookmark these outfits for a special occasion in the new year.
