As the year draws to a close and you've got a NYE invite stuck on the noticeboard then your after dark outfit should be firmly on your agenda. If there ever was a time to step outside your comfort zone and be a little bit adventurous, this is it. Dig out that ostentatious suit, your secret weapon which you've been itching to wear as on NYE, anything goes! It's not all black tuxedos and wing collars, here's our top picks to ring in the new year.
Now here's a look to raise a glass to. The Simon range continues to serve a show-stopping, cork-popping blinder of an outfit. New Year's Eve is one of the few occasions when you can get away with wearing velvet so lap it up and slip on this super soft paisley embossed number and be prepared to turn heads from the moment you step in. Dare to wear the full three piece suit, available in midnight blue, luxurious wine and classic black, or break it down and wear with some black tapered trousers. Rest assured, you'll be dressed for the occasion in this range.
The equally as flamboyant Warren blazer & waistcoat duo is another strong contender for your NYE attire. It features a jacquard finish which is the term used for when a pattern is woven into the fabric creating a bold and detailed design. The Warren range is adorned with a unique swirl jacquard pattern to add characterful flair and finesse. Boost the elegance with a crisp white shirt, slim fit suit trousers and the mandatory bowtie. You can even go the extra mile and wear a pinned collar shirt, this will really provoke attention.

It's not all shawl collars and velvet, it's time to do black tie a little differently. A blue suit can have its time to shine for a NYE event too, it's just about styling it the right way so it's less boardroom and more bar. Red and blue naturally bring out the best in each other, so use this to your advantage and pick out your finest deep red silk tie with a splash of pattern to add appeal. Coordinate your pocket square and try to avoid the cliche wing collar shirt and opt for a classic point collar. Top off with a pair of polished oxfords and head straight to the bar for that first beverage.
Emanate Gatsby vibes by pulling out all the stops in a clean-cut cream three piece suit. Make sure you choose one in a slim / tailored fit to nip in at the waist and taper the legs. Additionally, a tweed style will keep you warm when you head out in the single figure temperatures. A cream and red combination is both festive and gives an elegant look, so add a deep red pocket square and either coordinate with your tie or opt for a subtle grey/cream hue to keep the balance. Keep the 1920's theme by combining with a penny collar shirt with a distinctive pinstripe and hope that your Gatsby look allows you to live up to the party persona!
