VIP Nightclub Guest
- First and foremost check the nightclub’s website for their official dress code. It will most likely be strictly enforced on NYE.
- Go classic with a nice button down dress shirt.
- Accessorize a bit with jewelry, a stylish scarf, colorful socks, or a trendy hat (if allowed).
- If acceptable, dark denim paired with a unique blazer are classic go-to’s for a night out.
- Keep it simple by wearing one statement piece
- Lounges allow you to combine comfort and style.
- Have fun by mixing textures and patterns paired with layering.
- Again, check with the lounge, but dress shoes are most likely still required.
- You can skip on a dress shirt and opt for a cool t-shirt accessorized with a necklace or scarf.
- Don’t need to be too flashy at a lounge as most guests there are anticipating a low-key, mellow night.
House Party or Neighborhood Bar
- Lucky for you there’s no dress code, but why not make it special?!
- Comfort doesn’t need to be boring, go bold with a unique accessory.
- Let your feet do the talking with a pair of statement shoes.
