10 New Year’s Eve Outfits To Safely Celebrate The End of 2020
All the sparkles and shimmer you need for your Zoom or socially distanced celebrations.
The idea of bidding farewell to this year and welcoming a new one has never seemed so exciting. No matter what you call it—dumpster fire, train wreck, a catastrophe on repeat—2020 has been the worst, and we’re ready to leave it behind. However, since we’re still living in a pandemic, it’s no time to loosen up on safety precautions. So, even though it’s not going to look quite the same this year, we’re still planning to celebrate the end of 2020, which means we need a sparkly New Year’s Eve outfit.
Whether you have plans to stay home with your friends or family, go to a masked and socially distanced celebration, or log onto a Zoom party, a festive outfit can make all the difference in how you feel. After a year of spending most of our time in sweats and baggy clothes, you might not be in the mood to go all out with heels and restrictive clothing, but you can still rock a puff sleeve top or a loose-fitting sparkly dress to get in the spirit. Below, shop our picks for cut New Year’s Eve outfit ideas, no matter how you’re celebrating.
