What to Wear: New Year’s Eve

wear new years eve what to  year s

Let the countdown to 2014 begin! There are only a few days left until New Year’s Eve, and we’re sure you’re probably pondering over what to wear for the big night. We say it’s a big excuse to put on your nicest threads — especially if you have someone special to impress, or if you’re on the hunt for somebody. Go ahead, go for something flashy, just don’t overdo it. If you’re going to a fancy affair, you should opt for a bowtie and a jacket. The combo ups your ante. If you want to go beyond the traditional, go for something with a little flair that will make you stand out from all the white shirts, like the floral print shirt above. And don’t forget to get a pair of those silly glasses and a bottle of bubbly to ring in 2014!
