A-List New Year’s Eve Looks


The countdown is on. With New Year’s Eve fast-approaching, you need to nail down your party look now. This is your big night out, after all, so it’s time to take things up a notch.


Why not take your clothing cues from some of the sharpest dressed men on the planet? We’ve compiled some champagne-popping appropriate looks from the past year to help you get inspired.


Timeless Tuxedos

Big-ticket events warrant chic dressing. We recommend you forgo the ill-fitting tuxedo rental in favour of a more personalized black tie ensemble. You’re going to get a lot of mileage out of this purchase, so it’s worth investing in the proper fit and finishes.


Michael, Jon, and Justin are prime examples of the flattering effect of a sharply tailored suit. An oversized bow tie, like Timberlake’s TOM FORD version, adds an especially rakish touch.


Be The Bomb

The idea of wearing a perfectly cut tux to a fancy party is great and all, but some years the plan is decidedly more low-key. However, this doesn’t mean that you should wear any old shirt and jeans. Try stepping things up with a statement jacket for a dapper look that doesn’t take you into bow tie territory.


Show-stopping bombers are an easy answer to any informal NYE party. For an especially convivial night out, opt for an embellished version with plenty of personality, like the ones from Dolce & Gabbana and Versace Collection.


John, Nick, and Bruno show you how easy it is to hit the right sartorial notes. A graphic jacket is best worn with a more subdued shirt and pants combo – capped off with great shoes, naturally.


Don’t Tie One On

New Year's Eve festivities are an acquired taste. But for every man aiming to be in bed early, there is another planning to party like it's his last chance. A sleek suit or sport jacket is a great look for the guy who'll ring in 2017 loud enough for all of us.


Consider dressing-down your tailoring to communicate a sense of casual elegance that’s ideal for most any gathering. This contemporary approach can be achieved by foregoing the tie (while keeping your shirt buttoned-up to the neck) or wearing your suit with a crisp t-shirt and sneakers.


These film stars illuminate the appeal of a richly coloured suit — one that pops against white shirting. Their effortless outfits offer a polished way to celebrate the holiday without looking too stiff.


Tasteful Turtlenecks

Express your inner dandy by wearing a distinguished turtleneck underneath your jacket. It’s the perfect way to breathe new life into the quintessential New Year’s Eve outfit. A fine-gauge sweater and fitted suit will surely embody a suave attitude. What better way to enjoy a candlelit supper or swanky lounge?


A monochromatic palette (like Zayn and Roger’s) will further up your style quotient.
