When it comes to New Year’s Eve, there are so many different ways to celebrate. Whether your plans include watching the ball drop on TV or going out for a night on the town, you’ll want to dress accordingly. Keep scrolling for four festive men’s New Year’s Eve outfits, from ultra-casual to dressed up.

Staying in

If you’re planning a low-key evening at home to ring in the new year, make sure you’ve got cozy clothes that’ll keep you as comfortable as possible. A few of our picks? Soft sweatpants, a waffle-knit thermal, and—of course—slippers. For extra warmth while lounging or even running out to grab a bottle of champagne, a pullover and a beanie are go-to options.

Dinner party

Headed to dinner at a friend’s house? A modern, semi-formal New Year’s Eve outfit is a great choice. Try a crewneck sweater with a graphic stripe pattern and a pair of comfortable jeans. For the finishing touches, opt for clean white sneakers and a contemporary bomber jacket in a warm fabric like wool.

Formal event

With so many ways to celebrate the new year, a more formal event is an elevated choice. Before choosing your outfit, check the invitation for a dress code. You can’t go wrong with an elegant dressed-up look that incorporates a dress shirt and dinner jacket. Add a pair of slim-fit pants and a tie in a refined fabric like silk. Add the perfect amount of polish with sleek oxfords and a wool topcoat in a neutral hue.

A night out

If your New Year’s plan involves going out, who knows where the night might take you. An outfit that’s dressed up yet has a little extra flair for the holiday season is a festive choice. Start with a button-down in a stretch fabric, featuring a classic pattern like plaid. Create a rich mix of textures by choosing velveteen trousers, a coordinating silk tie, and a pair of suede shoes. And for just a touch of edge, throw on a leather jacket
