Struggling to find the perfect outfit for your NYE celebrations? Knowing where you’ll be when the ball drops is the first step to narrowing down your options, and we have the dress solutions your men need to look chic and stylish. Here are 3 ways to stay dapper and on-trend when the clock strikes midnight.
1. Formal Affair: Nothing says ringing in the New Year in style like donning an elegant tux. Personalize this classic look by adding details like a scarf, pocket square, suspenders or vintage shirt studs. And, never use a pre-tied bow tie — it’s downright lazy, plus the asymmetry of a traditional bow tie shows character. Then at the end of the night, you can wear it untied for a cool, James Bond 007 look.
2. Outdoor Event: What if you’re downtown in the chilly open air watching the ball drop this year? Try a long wool coat, fitted sweater and winter scarf for a layered look that is both functional and snappy.
3. Nightclub Chic: If you’re ready to get out on the dance floor and party like it’s 1999, but still want to look modern and sophisticated, consider a slim fit leather jacket with a simple unbuttoned black dress shirt or v-neck for a fun, yet polished, look.
Express, Zara and H&M carry an affordable selection of modern clothing and accessories suitable for NYE. The new year is all about new beginnings and reinvention. Strive to make 2016 your personal Year of the Gentleman.
