New Year’s Eve is always around the corner for the shrewd fashion planner, and it’s always a good time to prepare. Regardless of your preferences, we have compiled a list of outfits that will help you ring in the next year in great style.
So before you go shopping for new clothing, have a look at some of the best New Years outfits for men.
Black Leather Trousers With a Line Pattern
There are several different kinds of New Years’ Eve vibes you can bring to the table – we’ll start simple with the styles that double down on the party vibe of the season. You’ll often find these kinds of outfits at a New Year’s Eve party, but most of them are so unique that you don’t need to worry about seeming derivative. These spots are the perfect place to explore a new and risky style.
This outfit is an excellent example of that style. These faux leather pants are sure to bring the festivities to life, and pairing them with a delightfully distinctive patterned top like this one is an incredible decision.
A Floral Male Romper
Male rompers are the next big thing, and having a picture of yourself ahead of trend at a new years party is always a great idea. This bright and floral number will make you stick out in the best way possible no matter who you’re around.
The one downside to this is the downside present in all rompers – it will be deeply annoying to use the bathroom since you’ll need to take the whole piece off before being able to do so.
As a bonus, if you get the right fit, they tend to flatter your rear quite well.
A Green Suit With a T-Shirt
One of the best blends of classy and party is a unique, bright-colored suit. This green ensemble, seen sported here by DC basketball star Kyle Kuzma, is an excellent way to make that happen. It’s simultaneously elegant and wild. The fact that he’s wearing the suit with a t-shirt and not a dress shirt and tie places this firmly in the category of party fashion.
Brightly Colored Transparent Poncho
This one is fascinating and, even though it’s a little risky, will almost definitely work well for a certain kind of new year celebrant. The colors are bright but not overpowering – the most significant impact of this piece is in its unique design and general vibe.
People don’t tend to think of ponchos as fashion items, but influencer Young Mike makes a cogent case for them as he rocks this one.
Burgundy and White Patterned Shirt With a Leather Jacket
This outfit is one of the more sensible party options we have here – the main celebration in this outfit is going on in the shirt, which sticks out in beautiful style from the rest of the outfit. You’re sure to have eyes on you throughout the night if you walk in with this.
Rainbow Neon Romper
Rompers are attractive enough pieces that they merit two different spots here! This one is louder than the previous floral option we presented in this list. The glorious rainbow colors and the geological-seeming patterns are sure to place you firmly in the center of attention whether you’re in a nightclub or a friend’s home.
Checkered Suit With Sneakers
It’s had to tell which is better in this ensemble – the checkered suit or the bright yellow sneakers that accompany it. The suit style brings a dash of class, but it’s not a self-obsessed kind of class that won’t let itself on the dance floor. No, this kind of fancy is brazenly festive. It will bop and whirl all through the night – and so will you if you allow yourself to be inspired by it.
Navy Pinstripe Suit With a Beige Overcoat
Speaking of class – the next category we’ll explore here is traditional menswear. These outfits play around with the orthodoxy of male fashion, taking part in restraint only so far as it serves to augment the outfit’s stylistic power. You can’t wear just any suit to a new year’s eve party – but if you have a nice creative twist to the tradition, you’re sure to succeed.
This ensemble is a great example of this kind of formal wear. The colors play so beautifully together, and the cut on the suit fits the model’s body perfectly. This is the sort of piece that we’re examining in this section – both creative and sharply stylish.
Three Piece Burgundy Suit With Bowtie
Burgundy is one of my favorite colors. It has a dark and tender hue that evokes a gently comforting kind of power. It’s a perfect color for a New Years’ celebration, and this model’s choice to pair it with a white tuxedo shirt and derby shoes is an excellent one.
Three Piece Blue Checkered Suit With Sneakers
You certainly wouldn’t have seen this kind of outfit as the suit was first coming up in popularity decades ago, but the evolutions of fashion have blessed us with this gorgeous set, and we couldn’t be happier.
The overlapping checkered patterns of each part of the suit make it distinctive without losing its sharp, formal edge. That distinctiveness also helps the model to get away with pairing it with sneakers and a t-shirt. That combination would likely seem strange on a more traditional-looking suit, but here it fits exquisitely.
Forest Green Suit With a Nut Brown Overcoat
This French model brings comfort, cheer, festivity, and class to his ensemble here. The colors cooperate perfectly, but it isn’t overly buttoned-up. That’s true in quite a literal sense here, as Specter Bass ensures we don’t take him too seriously by unbuttoning the top pair.
A small but notable part that brings this outfit together is the beige-handled watch he’s wearing. It effectively complements the darker, patterned nut-brown of the overcoat and exudes respect.
Gray Prince of Wales Plaid Suit With a Cream–Colored Hat
A lot is happening in this piece designed by Eduardo Xavier – the Prince of Wales plaid pattern on the suit makes it pop out among the crowd, but that’s exactly what many people are going for at a New Year’s celebration.
The hat is doing a great deal for the outfit as well. Without its statement of welcoming plainness, the rest of the body could be too overwhelming to come off well. But because the hat is there, it acts as a mellowing complement to the suit, creating an excellent overall composition.
A Classic Tuxedo
One of the best options you can spring for here is the classic: a tuxedo. This is especially good for higher-end parties/gatherings. If you’re just hanging out with a few friends, renting a tux for the evening is probably excessive. But if you have, for example, a cocktail party with people you want to impress, this is an excellent option.
After all, if there’s any time to invest in excessiveness, it’s New Year’s Eve!
Brown, Beige, and Blue
This might seem like a strange color combination, but it can really wow an audience if you get the hues right. The light beige blazer brings out the reassuring nature of the high-quality deep-brown sweater, and the sky blue shirt behind it all adds just a touch of color to brighten it all into success.
The warmth of this ensemble is an additional factor in its favor – you don’t need to worry about losing your style when you head outside to get some air amid the cold winter night.
Sky Blue Suit With a White Shirt
This combination is an ideal party outfit for any time of year but works especially well in the flowing vibes of a New Year’s celebration. If you can pull it off, we recommend following the example of the model and unbuttoning the top two buttons. That allows the whole ensemble to cooperate in flowy-yet-classy relaxation.
Black Leather Pants and Jacket With Green-bottomed Sneakers
We’re moving on to outfits that are laid-back but powerful. These are largely inspired by street fashion – they’re laid back, but they still exude power and style that is sure to be irresistible.
This black leather array is a perfect example of this kind of fashion. It doesn’t have the overt energy of party wear, nor does it conjure the sharp, high-end classiness of our formal options. No, this is unapologetically relaxed while being unapologetically stylish.
Blue, Gray, and White Patterned Top With Cream Khakis
Sometimes clothes are interesting because of their tailoring or their fit – the form of the piece. The top being modeled here is simple in form, but the pattern is engrossing and merits a spot in your New Year’s fashion preparations.
Even though the colors are a little more beachy, the great thing about New Year’s is the eclectic quality it brings. As long as you’re wearing something interesting and appropriate to the event, it’s hard to go wrong.
Black Pants, Fuzzy Gray Shirt, and a Complex Leather Jacket
Take a look at this fancy fellow! The styling on this outfit is fractal – you understand its compelling quality more the more you look at it. The key to making this work is the interplay between the comfortable vibe of the fuzzy gray shirt and the sharpness of a leather jacket crammed with different zippers and pockets.
That combination plays very well in a New Year’s context – it’s both inviting and commands respect.
Gray Turtleneck With a Navy Suit
Some people think turtlenecks are reserved exclusively for either poets or tech moguls – such people are deceived. The turtleneck brings a unique combination of class and comfort to any outfit, and it works exceptionally well when combined with a suit.
The added benefit of turtlenecks is that they provide warmth in the cold weather you will likely encounter at a New Year’s celebration. That said, if you’re looking forward to some passionate making out, these pieces can be somewhat inconvenient.
Black Leather Jacket and a Brown Cardigan
We don’t often see a cardigan layered with a leather jacket on top for reasons of style (you might see it for the sake of warmth), but this influencer has managed to pull off a great look with that combination. The nut-brown cardigan plays exceptionally well with the vibrant blue jeans , giving the whole outfit a vibe of relaxed flair for jean lovers of any size.
Sepia Checkered Overcoat Over a White Shirt, Black Pants, and Black Boots
This combination sticks out because the centerpiece is the overcoat, whose unique checker pattern exudes intrigue and power. That feeling is then reinforced by the black boots, which bring all the different parts together. The black pants and white shirt exist as stage setting elements to allow the harmony between the overcoat and the boots to take most of the outfit’s focus.
22 – Plaid Pants With a Burnt Orange Sweater
This burnt orange color is a beautiful one for the occasion, and it pairs very well with the kind of gray plaid that the model is wearing in the picture. Wrapping the whole thing up with a pair of white shoes is a lovely decision that brings it all together effectively.
Cream-Colored Blazer With Gray Shirt
This uniquely-cut cream blazer would look great at a New Year’s party. Not everyone will be able to pull off the color combination it brings with the gray shirt as well as this model does, but a rich navy blue or a deep orange would pair perfectly.
Black Ensemble of a Romper, Overcoat, Loafers, and a Silver Necklace
Finally, these last outfits we have will honor the risky and strange stylings you can bring to a New Year’s party. Since the feeling of the season is one of freedom and change, celebrants have the liberty to try out several different kinds of fashions.
Consider an outfit like this if you’re interested in exploring the more feminine side of fashion at your soiree. The all-black coloring of the outfit brings a level of groundedness to its otherwise gender-exploratory nature, giving you more freedom to work the power of the ensemble.
Galaxy Print Pants With a Cream Colored Top
There’s something uniquely beautiful about paint-stained pants, and this model has stylized his paint stains to be even more aesthetic in a galaxy pattern. So whether you want to accomplish that through galaxy print items you purchase from a store or through your do-it-yourself paint-staining creativity, this outfit packs an incredible punch.
The symbolism here is also excellent if that interests you in your fashion choices! The notion of carrying around the sky on your pants pairs delightfully with ringing in the new year.
Black Romper With Text Print
Sometimes, a fit that’s been designed with celebrity input isn’t worth looking at. But other times, it’s this black romper with gloriously chaotic text print designed by Trippie Redd. The whole collection that came out of their collaboration is worth checking out, but this piece is especially compelling for New Years’ festivities.
Controlled chaos is an attractive concept to bring along with you to a party, and it’s even more attractive when you’re wearing it as a part of your outfit. This romper is an embodiment of controlled chaos – the patterns and text seem random, but they cooperate to create a beautiful overall image. It may be a risky piece, but you can’t go wrong with it.
Loudly Patterned Pants, Shirt, and Scarf
It’s hard to understand this outfit in abstract categories since it’s so loud that it shouts down any effective categorization. But if there would be any night to try something like this, it’s New Year’s Eve.
You likely won’t be able to find all three of the pieces that play a prominent role in this specific outfit (the black and yellow plaid pants, the feather-pattern shirt, and the orange and yellow scarf with a loud indiscernible pattern), but you might have similar items in your closet.
Blue Plaid Jacket, Tawny Brown Pants, and a Custom Shirt
Whenever you’re looking for fashion inspiration that’s weird yet effective, Harry Styles is always an excellent celebrity influence to turn to. He is constantly changing the game and always looking incredible while doing it. Here, the combination of the colors, fits, and patterns work very well, but the most prominent thing is the fan-made shirt he’s wearing.
Of course, most people don’t have fans making custom shirts for them all the time. But why can’t you rock a custom shirt that displays your name encircled by a heart? Self-love is all the rage these days! This would be an incredible way to both fill yourself with confidence and project that confidence into any gathering you join on the night.
Chopped Black Shirt With Red Spandex Shorts
This outfit embodies true experimentation. Not only has the model here sliced up his shirt to teasingly expose some skin, but he’s also wearing these lovely red spandex shorts that feature metal chain accents and fishnet sides (not seen in the picture).
This is genuine rave fashion, and we’re delighted to see it – it’s exactly the sort of thing that belongs right at home at New Year’s festivities.
Colorful Bird Print Jacket and Sweats
It’s one thing to wear a gorgeous bird print puffy coat – pairing that with matching bird print sweatpants is a decision that exudes so much power and style that you’ll be irresistibly charismatic at whatever event you attend.
As with many of the items in this segment of New Year’s fashion, it will likely be tough for you to find these exact items, but the principle in play here is one of matching prints that are both loud and gorgeous.
Leather Jacket With Black Bell Bottoms and a Deep V-Neck.
This ensemble from the Toronto Raptors’ Gary Trent Jr. is chaotic, experimental, and lovely. The cut of the leather jacket blends delightfully with the erotic vibe of the shirt and the boundary-pushing of the bell bottoms.
If you show up to a party wearing this, you’re almost guaranteed to find a New Year’s kiss by the end of the evening – if you’re looking for one, that is.
