The look

For a night in with friends, the goal is to look put-together yet totally at ease.

Whether you’re the host, or showing up as a guest with a bottle of wine in tow, honor the work put into the evening with your outfit. Wear your best casual layers all together to smarten up a laid-back look.

If the drawstring pants feel too casual, swap them for jeans or twill 5-pocket pants.

It easily goes from casual to special event-ready with the addition of a turtleneck underneath.

Men’s NYE Outfit: Formal Event

The look

If ever there were an occasion to dress-to-impress, a black tie or black tie optional New Year’s Eve wedding (or any formal event!) certainly checks the “Let’s do this” style box.

Change up your usual dressy style with a green velvet tuxedo jacket, paired with a pair of black tuxedo pants, and velvet slippers.

Then turn on the charm and lock down that midnight kiss.

The key piece

That Express tuxedo jacket! It won’t break the bank, and you’ll feel like a celebrity all night.

Styling note: If you’re trying to decide between going bold with your tuxedo jacket or pants for a formal outift, we’ve found our clients feel more comfortable stepping out of their comfort zone when they incorporate texture, colors, and patterns on top.

While you’ll need to pay special attention to the slim cut and snug fit of a jacket to avoid looking costume-y, you’ll find you can wear it in both dressy and slightly more casual looks over time.

A few more notes on party style

  • Unsure of the party’s dress code? Ask the host! Unless it’s a black tie only affair, you’ll likely have everything you need in your closet already for a stylish outfit.
  • A turtleneck looks good with everything from a suit to jeans. New Year’s Eve is the perfect night to bust one out if you’ve been wanting to try one.
  • If your event requires a tux, add personality in your accessories. Silk or velvet bow tie? Oh yes. Attention-grabbing socks? You bet.
