How To: Dress For New Years Eve

Author Editor - 3 minute read
What a year 2023 has been, and it deserves to be seen out in style. Whether you’re a firework watcher or party go-er, if you’re wondering what to wear this New Years Eve then we’ve got 8 stylish New Year’s Eve outfit ideas worth toasting to – cheers!



If you can’t wear sequins at New Years, then when can you? The ‘it’ party dress of the season, a sequin dress, is a no-brainer for year-end celebrations. Seek inspiration from the disco-ball and shimmer into ’24 in a glistening gown such as our golden favourite Deniz Embellished Mini Dress, and it’s guaranteed to be a 2023 wardrobe highlight.


If you’re looking to flirt with a full length frock during festivities, consider our Ronja Liquid Metal Maxi Slip Dress as your must-have metallic maxi dress. The contemporary sheen of this slip dress, paired with a sultry leg split, will be attracting attention long before midnight strikes.


A trending style right now, how could we not suggest seeing in New Years Eve with a sleek satin midi skirt? The midi skirt is a year-round favourite - the most flattering length skirt suited to every figure and occasion - but has been effortlessly updated this season as an evening wear essential in an elegant satin finish. Our Inu Satin Wrap Midi Skirt is a staple style, perfect for dressing up with a nice top or as a way to elevate your cosy knitwear for celebrations.


No occasionwear collection is complete without a trusty LBD or two, or three… A black mini dress is a reach-for style no matter the time of year, however our Whisper Ruth Faux Fur Trim Mini Dress reinvigorates the classic with a seasonal flair. Faux fur trims make this a chic winter dress favourite here at FC HQ, and we recommend wrapping up warm for the party commutes with a co-ordinating faux fur coat.



Why not join in with the new year countdown dressed in a co-ord this year. A sequin co-ord set deserves its own spotlight, and our Adalynn Sequin Top and Adalynn Sequin Midi Skirt need no introduction. Make your entrance and embrace the high-shine by pairing with dazzling diamante jewellery.



If a tailored two-some is more your style, then look no further than our ladies’ suiting for the season. We love a versatile co-ord, and you’ll get plenty of future wears out of our Estella Jacquard Blazer and Estella Jacquard Trousers, from weekday boardrooms to weekend brunches. The party doesn’t start until you walk in, so walk in purse first with our PU Mini Soft Handbag, in a soft tobacco shade to channel the Quiet Luxury trend or opt for the rich red to complete your look with a pop of colour.



A floral dress is forecast to carry on being groundbreaking even in 2024, so why not make a flourishing entrance into the new year? Embroidery detailing elevates a floral dress into opulent occasionwear, and we adore the intricate decoration of our Camielle Embroidered Midi Dress, making it a timeless meets on-trend black midi dress ready to be worn with your go-to party heels.



If you’re venturing out to watch a firework display this year, you may be looking for practical New Years Eve outfits. Don’t let the chill of the air stop you from dressing to impress, as even your daily denim can be dressed-up for the occasion. A shapely wide leg fit has been named the most flattering jeans for women, and a statement top such as our Edrea Tulle Cropped Top effortlessly transforms your ensemble from everyday to evening. If you’re looking to reinvigorate your denim collection, our Denver Denim Midi Skirt is another versatile piece, perfect for pairing with a knitted jumper, winter boots and a faux fur trim coat to keep you cosy whilst enjoying the colourful displays in the sky above.
From all of us at French Connection, we hope the year’s been good to you, and here’s to an even better 2024! x
