While every girl’s go-to NYE outfit is all about sparkle and shine, a guy can’t exactly run around in sequins, glitter, and metallic prints. However that is not to say that a guy’s outfit shouldn’t be sleek or that there shouldn’t be some element of shine because there DEFINITELY should be (to a degree)! A great way to accomplish shine is through fabrics and materials like freshly-shined leather shoes and belt, a velvet or sateen blazer, or a silk shirt. As for color- it’s pretty simple, go for deep, saturated colors like navy, purple, or black.
Here are a few outfit combo ideas:
Combo 1: Nice blue black denim on bottom, a basic grey slim-cut blazer with some sheen, a houndstooth tie, and navy suede shoes to bring out the blue in the denim.
Combo2: Black Velvet Blazer over a crisp white dress shirt, dark-wash jeans fastened with a sleek black belt and cuffed to reveal the sparkly short boot.
Combo 3: Crisp white dress shirt beneath a burgundy tuxedo jacket with contrast lapel in black, which coordinates with the black pants, which can be dress pants for a more formal look, or cords is you want to dress down the tux jacket. Accessorize with a patent leather dress shoe and flashy time piece.
