3 Outfits Perfect For New Year’s Eve (and The Lingerie To Wear Underneath!)
If there’s ever a time to go bold with your style, it’s New Year’s Eve. Not only do you want to end the year with a bang, but you also want to ring in the new one with a bold ensemble. It doesn’t matter if you’re having casual drinks at home with friends, hitting the town with your S.O., or attending an elaborate bash — this is one night you can have fun with your fashion choices.
Naturally, there are a number of different ways to dress for this holiday, and what you wear may depend on your plans as well as your personal style. Still, if you’re hoping to make a statement, there are certain looks that are sure to turn some heads. But not only do you need to think about what you’re wearing on the outside — you’ll also need to consider what lingerie to wear underneath. After all, your underthings provide the base of your outfit.
Here are some of our top outfit ideas for ringing in the new year — plus some suggested lingerie to pair with them:
Velvet bodysuit and black jeans

Who says you need to wear a dress on NYE? A long-sleeved, figure-hugging bodysuit and skinny jeans is a sexy combo that also happens to be a bit more practical on a frigid night.
There’s no doubt about it: velvet is right on trend this holiday season. Look for a bodysuit in classic black, rich red, or pale silver for an especially festive vibe. Then wear it with black jeans and ankle booties to toughen the look up a bit. Pop on a leather jacket and some statement earrings and you’ve got an ensemble that’s both edgy and elegant at the same time.
Why not kick things up a notch by putting your decolletage on display? Of course, a push-up bra will amp up the cleavage in a dramatic way, but if you’re hoping to give your bust a subtler lift, a balconette or demi-cup bra will work nicely.

Hardly anything screams New Year’s Eve quite like a shimmery party dress. If you’re hitting up a glamorous soiree, consider a metallic one-shoulder shift dress. Showing a little peek of shoulder is undeniably flirtatious, and the glitzy fabric is sure to draw some admiring stares from other party guests. Pair your dress with nude pumps and simple jewels to make sure your stunning dress stays in the spotlight.
A convertible bra will definitely come in handy for this one-shoulder look: You can simply remove one strap so that you still get some extra support without your bra showing. If your dress is form-fitting, you’ll likely want to opt for a seamless thong to avoid any visible panty lines.

It’s safe to say that this was the year of the jumpsuit, so it’s a stellar choice for New Year’s Eve. Not only is a jumpsuit right on trend, but it’s also sassy yet surprisingly comfortable at the same time. With a plunging neckline, the jumpsuit takes on a sultry twist. Wear it with platform pumps and a metal cuff bracelet for a bold combination.
For this ensemble, you’ll definitely want to go with a plunge bra. This style won’t show beneath your low-cut neckline, and to boot, it’ll give you lots of lift to flatter your bust. Fortunately, there are many different plunge styles to choose from, such as a plunge longline bra and a plunge bralette, so you’ll certainly find one that fits your needs and preferences.
If you’re hoping to make this New Year’s Eve memorable, any of these ensemble ideas are sure to do the trick. Just remember: What you wear underneath is equally important. Even if a special someone isn’t going to see it, it’ll still make your outfit look even more flattering — and fabulous.
