Three Ways to Ring in the New Year In Style

December 27, 2016

New Year’s Eve is all about celebrating the past year’s successes and welcoming a new year of achievement. When you look back at that fateful night, will one of your highlights be your personal style? Whether you’re headed to a big party or hosting a few friends at home, it’s important to look good for the countdown. If you’re still deciding on what to wear, observe these tips to assemble your best look.

Double Up

New Year’s Eve is one of the few times where you get to take really bold style risks.  One of the boldest suiting risks a guy can take is the double-breasted suit. All on its own, the style is captivating and smart. But how you style it makes all the difference.  You can add a traditional touch with a bowtie and white dress shirt. Or you can take style cues from Nick Jonas by pairing your DB suit with white sneakers and a graphic tee. The beauty here is that you can do whatever you want and it’ll still look good.

Get Festive

You know that red tartan plaid blazer you’ve always wanted to wear? Well, NYE is literally the only time of year when it’s appropriate. Don’t be afraid of bold patterns or colors. Embrace them. Just be sure to balance things out with solid trousers and subtle accessories.

Celebrate the Classics

If you’re going to a black-tie gala, skip the basic black tuxedo for a white dinner jacket with black lapels.  The look evokes the classic style of Mad Men and Boardwalk Empire.  You’ll look like a new era gangster ready to blast his way into 2017.

We all want our New Year’s Eve celebrations to be filled with great memories.  But those memories should definitely include signature looks.
