Time to welcome a New Year! Here are BRAHMIN's top tips on what to wear on New Year's Eve including everything from handbags to accessories.

Your Guide on What to Wear on New Year’s Eve 

Time to welcome a New Year! You’ll want to celebrate January 1 in a New Year’s Eve outfit that rings in good cheer. The accessories you choose make your look truly shine. Here are Brahmin’s top tips on the perfect ones to help you ring in a bright and bold New Year. 

What To Wear On New Year’s Eve: Handbag Edition!  

No matter how you celebrate, a stylish bag should be an essential component of your New Year’s Eve outfit ideas. We’re all for counting down to a new year with a new handbag

What to Wear to a Friend’s NYE Party 

It’s so much fun to spend the New Year at your best pal’s place, and so thoughtful to bring a bubbly bottle of Prosecco and dark chocolate to the festivities. Your New Year’s Eve looks can range from casual in boot-cut jeans and a boxy blazer to something more elegant, like an off-the-shoulder knit maxi-dress, and our oversized tote will work with both. Roomy enough to carry all your NYE goodies, try one from our signature Melbourne collections

What to Wear to New Year’s Eve Dinner 

One of the nicest ways to ring in the New Year is with an elegant dinner out. This perfect opportunity to get dressed up in your favorite LBD or a sharp-looking pantsuit needs to be paired with one of your favorite evening handbags. A small but mighty satchel handbag complements either look, offering a spacious interior and multiple compartments for your last-day-of-the-year essentials. Try a stylish shoulder bag in a bright, bold hue. Or you could opt for a sleek leather zip-around clutch or wristlet that offers a minimal footprint with maximum impact. 

What to Wear to a NYE Special Event 

You’re one that likes going all out for New Year’s. There will be party horns and noisemakers, and yes, an evening filled with dancing. Complement your cocktail attire, from a strapless long-line dress to a fitted pair of trousers and shimmery top, with the ultimate New Year’s eve purse: the crossbody bag. You’ll be hands-free to enjoy the midnight toast with all the other gatherers. Consider a mini-crossbody purse, which will allow you to easily sway to the evening’s beats. 

How To Accessorize Your New Year's Eve Outfit 

Now that you’ve selected what to wear on NYE, it’s time to finish off your look with the perfect accessories



After you’ve decided what colors to wear on New Year's Eve, you can complement your outfit with your choice of jewelry. Add a burst of color to a simple black ensemble with stud earrings or a locket necklace. A gold-plated design embellished with European crystals looks oh-so-chic in a rich red hue. 

Colorful Leather Handbag 

Getting gussied up in an all-white ensemble? Those winter whites would look amazing with a bold pop of color. Keep the ensemble festive with bags in holiday-friendly hues. Or slip a pastel print bag over your shoulder as an ode to upcoming spring tones.   

Hair Accessories 

Add sparkle from the top with must-have hair pins. Gold plated hair pins adorned with European crystals are perfect for special occasions, though we’re pretty sure you’ll want to wear them year-round. 


What To Keep In Your Purse On New Year's Eve 

There are a few things you should have in your bag on New Year’s Eve to help the night go without a hitch:  

  • Lipstick for easy gloss ups 
  • Portable phone charger so you won’t miss one message at midnight 
  • Mints for fresh breath (just in case you give a New Year’s kiss!)
