Accessories That Turn Any Outfit Into a New Year’s Eve Look

Time to welcome a New Year! You’ll want to celebrate January 1 in a look that brings good cheer. What makes a New Year’s Eve outfit truly shine is the accessories you choose. 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 where you celebrate, here are the stylish bags you need to count down to a new year.

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. You’ll probably bring a nice bottle of wine or gluten-free biscotti to the festivities. Whether you keep it casual in boot-cut jeans and an airy top, or step it up in a metallic dress with a criss-cross bodice, an oversized tote is roomy enough to carry all your tasty goodies. Try a shoulder bag in a soft animal inspired print.

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. It’s the perfect opportunity to get dressed up in your favorite LBD or a sharp-looking pantsuit. A small but mighty satchel handbag complements either look, offering a spacious interior and multiple compartments for your essentials. Try a stylish-shaped satchel in a bright, bold hue. Or you could opt for a wristlet, a sleek leather zip-around clutch that offers a minimal footprint with maximum impact.

What to Wear to a NYE Special Event

You’re 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 a crossbody bag. You’ll be hands-free to enjoy the midnight toast along with all the other festivities. 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 for New Year’s, it’s time to finish off your look with the perfect accessories.


You can dress up any New Year’s outfit with your choice of jewelry. Add a burst of color to a simple black outfit 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 look festive with bags in holiday jewel tones. Or slip a pastel print bag over your shoulder as an ode to upcoming spring hues. 

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!)
