By Mikkel Hyldebrandt


New Year’s Eve is your last chance to close out the year – so why not do it in style! Break out the sequins, dress like a rock star, and let the details of your outfit outshine the rest.

This is the night to go all out, and wear those pieces that are a little extra and outrageous.



A sequined jacket is fun and certainly festive! You can also go for a jacket with a bold pattern or texture.

Rock Star Attire

A leather jacket will make anything you wear look like you’re a rock star. Combine it with a white shirt and a tie or bowtie, and you have the perfect party look.

It’s the small details that can truly elevate an outfit – and don’t be afraid to be a little playful and eccentric!


Suspend It!

Remember that classic white shirt? Combine it with slim suspenders for an instant, fashionable look.

Tie a Bow

A bowtie will upgrade any shirt to party mode – even a plain denim shirt!
