1. The Tulle Skirt

The long tulle skirt is a standout choice for a Parisian-inspired New Year’s Eve outfit. As seen in the photo above, from Paris Fashion Week outside Dior, pairing it with a crisp shirt, a suit jacket (I love the J.Crew black and white tuxedo blazer in Italian wool), and sling-back pumps create an ensemble that epitomizes chic. Alternatively, for a look that effortlessly captures the Parisian spirit, I suggest pairing a black tulle skirt with a classic cashmere sweater, ballet flats, and a sleek evening bag. This season, the J.Crew layered tulle skirt and the full-length tiered skirt in chiffon are my top picks.

2. The Sequin Dress

The sequin dress (or “la robe à paillette”) is a standout choice for New Year’s Eve, blending the glamour of the 1970s Disco and the Roaring Twenties. This season, I recommend the chic Rosaé Le Elvis and Sezane’s Halet sequined dresses, with their stylish wide sleeves, structured shoulders, and deep V-necks. For added glamour, Oséree’s black satin maxi dress, sparkling with sequins and trimmed with feathers, is a luxurious option. These dresses promise to make you the center of attention, perfectly capturing the essence of Parisian elegance and festive celebration.

3. The Velvet Suit Jacket

The black velvet suit jacket is an essential piece for achieving that Parisian party chic look on New Year’s Eve. In my opinion, the epitome of this style is the Saint Laurent velvet blazer. Its slim fit, silk lining, and padded shoulders make it a timeless choice for any chic wardrobe. For an equally elegant alternative, consider opting for Sézane’s Christie double-breasted suit jacket in smooth velvet or Sandro’s velvet suit jacket. Pair these jackets with a white silk blouse and black pants or jeans for a polished outfit. Finish the look and add the perfect touch of sophistication with a pair of two-tone Mary Jane pumps, like the chic Carel’s Papaya slingbacks.

4. The Little Black Dress

The little black dress (LBD or “la petite robe noire”) is a must-have for New Year’s Eve, especially in French fashion. It’s the ideal choice for any special event, combining comfort with elegance. This season, I’m particularly fond of this Sandro dress with its unique jewelry collar, which adds a touch of sophistication. Another great option is the Sézane Eliana velvet dress, with its flattering round neckline and flared hem. Pair yours with Chloé’s velvet ballet flats and Calzedonia’s glitter-lined sheer tights for a chic look. This outfit is perfect for a stylish and effortless celebration, embodying the timeless charm of French fashion.

5. Sequin Pants

For a unique and chic French New Year’s outfit, consider pairing sequin pants with a crisp white shirt. This combination brings a touch of sophistication to any festive look, perfect for the holiday season. This season, I love the Oséree feather-trimmed sequined pants for a glamorous touch or Sézane’s Aurelin pants in Champagne for a more classic look. Pair them with a loose white button-down shirt in silk for a stylish contrast. Complete the look with a classic black wool coat (I just bought this one from Sandro) and classic loafers. Et voilà!

“Trois, deux, un… Bonne Année!”

  • I am a big fan of the Little Black Dress for all occasions but these sequin pants just blew me away. I think a little change will be in order this New Year!

    They all look beautiful but would be nice to see something for the more mature woman and of a larger size.
