5 New Year’s Eve Outfit Ideas to Help You Celebrate the Start of 2022

2021 is coming to a close, and I think it’s safe to say none of us are particularly sad to see it go. Personally, I still can’t believe I wasted such a cute outfit ringing in this dumpster fire of a year, but you know what they say: When you look your best, you feel your best, so I’ll be weighing my options for New Year’s Eve outfits to help me channel only positive vibes going into 2022.

Unfortunately, the world will still be battling the coronavirus pandemic in the new year, which means celebrations can’t be as lively as you might be used to. Fortunately, there is a silver lining to a socially distant or fully virtual soiree at home: You’re under no obligation to wear heels or dress to the nines.

Here’s my Five New Year’s Eve Outfit Ideas to Help You Celebrate the Start of 2022


Done-in-one ensembles are a lazy fashionista’s dream. If you can’t be bothered to piece together an outfit, embrace the jumpsuit; it’s an almost effortless fashion statement. Accessorize with dainty jewelry, a sleek belt, and wait until plans have been cemented before deciding on footwear. Heels and flats are great if you’re seeing someone in your pod, but no one’s going to judge you if you opt for slippers or go barefoot around the homestead.

Something Sleek

A mini dress and matching blazer is the perfect New Year’s Eve outfit to start 2022 on a sophisticated note. Add a pair of sleek, knee-high (or higher!) boots and minimal accessories to tie it all together.

Sparkle and Shine

Don’t let the chaotic energy of 2021 dim your light heading into 2022. Instead, radiate confidence and excitement for a fresh start with a New Year’s Eve outfit that shines. From a pop of glitz to head-to-toe sparkle, a little bit of glam is sure to lift your spirits.

Poufy and Puffy

The best thing about celebrating 2021 from your own home is that there aren’t any rules and you can avoid judgement. Embrace your inner fashion influencer and dare yourself to pull on that poufy, whimsical dress you’ve been hanging onto all year. There’s no time like the present, and perhaps it’ll bring you some luck for the 12 months ahead.


Props if you can stay awake long enough to see the ball drop, but if your track record mirrors Sleeping Beauty’s, don’t bother getting dressed for the occasion. Instead, rock your favorite pair of festive PJs as your New Year’s Eve outfit. This way, you’re ready for photo ops in true Pinterest fashion, and if you happen to fall asleep on the couch, it’s no big deal.

May God bless you with a safe, healthy, and joyous New Year.
