So grab a glass of bubbly and keep reading as we share our favourite, affordable New Year’s Eve pieces for an amazing evening no matter your plans (sequins, velvet, and sparkles guaranteed!).


Sequins are synonymous with NYE – they bring instant cheer and elevate any outfit.

Here at Bricks & Stitches we can’t resist a bit of sparkle, and I think we’ve found the perfect pieces for the festive period this year.

Isla sequin party dress silver – £85

Nothing says New Year’s Eve like a silver sequin mini dress. This beautiful sequin number is timeless and chic – but with a fun addition of balloon sleeves and flattering v-neckline for some added drama.

How to style

Style with black tights, and knee-high boots – or brave the cold and go bare legged with some strappy heels. If the latter, you might want to pair it with a fur coat though!

Black sequin halter neck jumpsuit – £115

If you’re feeling adventurous, try this STUNNING plunge halter neck sequin jumpsuit which is sure to turn heads.

How to style

Let the sequins do the talking and pair with simple court shoes. Cover up with a cashmere shrug to keep the arms warm when welcoming guests at your door.

One shoulder Raina top – £45

If you love sparkles but not sure if you can brave a whole sequined outfit – try this wonderfully stylish one shoulder sequin top in champagne.

Perfect to add a bit of New Year’s Eve cheer to your outfit without feeling like a disco ball.

How to style

Tuck into high waisted black jeans and trousers, or with a black midi skirt for an elegant alternative.

Let the top do the talking and keep things simple with jewellery. A cropped fur jacket would work perfectly here for some added warmth.

Sequin pencil skirt – £62

Our favourite sequin pick for an easy New Year’s Eve look – a stylish sequin pencil skirt that

How to style

Pair with a cosy high neck jumper, or a beautiful wrap cardigan.

An oversized, chunky knit jumper tucked in is also a great option if you need some added warmth when watching the fireworks.

For shoes, I’m a firm believer than knee high boots go with anything. Ankle boots are also a great alternative.

And for a coat – a black belted coat would go perfectly here. The longer the better so that the sequins just peep out when you’re walking.


Like sequins, velvet goes hand in hand with NYE to bring that extra bit of luxury. Not only that, but it’s so versatile to wear. Here are our favourite velvet pieces and how to style.

Keaka velvet blazer & Shali trousers – £99-£65

2022 was the year for trouser suits – and they’re sure to be popular during the festive period and as we move into 2023. I love how versatile they are, styled together, or as separate garments for stunning looks all year round.

This navy suit is a stunning deep velvet – with a beautifully tailored trouser which skims all the right places.

The blazer is single breasted and buttons in the middle.

How to style

We have paired it here with a beautiful sequin top – as we’ve said – you can never have too many sparkles on NYE!

You can also pair it with a simple black camisole with a delicate black lace detail for a super feminine look. For shoes try some patent loafers for a bit of androgyny – or pointed court shoes if you want a bit of height.

We also have this suit available in other colours – hot pink, bottle green and black.

Black velvet party top – £48

Velvet and lace go together like gin and tonic – a match made in heaven for New Year’s Eve!

This beautiful top is a great way to subtly include some festive luxury into your NYE outfit.

The stunning balloon lace sleeves elevate the top and make it perfect for keeping the winter cold out whilst still being stylish.

How to style

Try mixing textures with a pleated midi skirt, or tuck into wide leg, high-waisted trousers to balance out the balloon sleeves. Add a pair of comfy boots and you’re ready for a chilly pub crawl or fireworks show.

Maxi skirts

A personal favourite of mine this winter is maxi skirts. They add the perfect amount of drama and style whilst keeping out the cold. Here are my top picks and how to style them.

Steevi lurex pleated skirt – £48

This pleated maxi skirt is the best way to achieve an easy NYE look. And the red is oh-so festive.

How to style

Wear with a cosy high neck jumper and slippers for a comfy night in with fizz and crackers.

Hadley satin slip skirt – £46

New Year’s Eve is all about jewel tones – luxury colours which ooze celebration. This satin slip skirt in a delightful purple colour just screams festivities. The flattering bias cut perfectly skims your silhouette and the elasticated band keeps you comfortable whilst tucking into Christmas leftovers.

How to style

If you’re heading out on a pub crawl, try pairing with chunky boots and a cosy knit like we have here. Or if you’re dancing the night away at a party, try with an off the shoulder top and strappy sandals for a more elevated look.

Leopard print tulle skirt – £90

Leopard print is one of those timeless prints that will never go out of style. I love the combination of leopard and tulle in the super flattering maxi skirt silhouette. The added volume of the skirt is so chic – think Dior circa 1950!

How to style

A dramatic oversized black coat would go brilliantly with this skirt – with the tulle kicking out as you walk. Keep things simple on top with a fitted knit – or try tying a thin cardigan at the waist to show off the silhouette.

For shoes, anything goes. We’ve paired it with a gorgeous pair of suede knee-high boots – but ankle boots will look just as good. For a casual look, add some crisp white trainers or loafers.

Cashmere jumpers

Whether you’re curling up on the sofa with a glass of red or nursing a hangover the day after – cashmere jumpers are the perfect way to relax without compromising your style. Here are our top picks.

Navy cashmere jumper – £150

A high neck jumper should be a staple in everyone’s wardrobe. This gorgeous premium cashmere mix jumper is ideal for any occasion and can be dressed up or down.

How to style

Wear with a chic satin slip skirt for an understated party look, or throw on with jeans or pyjama bottoms for a cosy night in.

Short sleeved cashmere mix jumper – £75

A slightly cropped sleeve can add a new dimension to your knitwear. This luxury cashmere short sleeved jumper is a great basic to have in your wardrobe, with a flattering scoop neck and ¾ length sleeves.

How to style

For a night look, French tuck into a flowy (or sparkly) skirt with heels. For a smart casual style, pair with tailored grey trousers and loafers.


And finally, finish off your looks with some beautiful accessories. Here are my favourites at Bricks & Stitches.

100% leather bag – £140

With so many textures, sparkles and luxury fabrics stealing the show on NYE, your accessories can take more of a supporting role. But by no means do they have to be boring.

This gorgeous 100% leather clutch bag has the perfect amount of detail without overpowering your NYE looks. The stunning woven accents and beautiful taupe colour adds a chic dimension to your outfit.

It can be worn as a clutch or use the shoulder strap so you can dance, chat, and grab that champagne at midnight without needing your hands.

How to style

The great thing about this sleek style means this bag goes with almost anything! My favourite way to style is with a satin slip skirt and roll neck jumper with boots.

Pom pom hat – £38

Keeping warm doesn’t have to compromise your NYE look. This stunning oatmeal cable knit pom pom hat has 3 subtle diamante details to continue the festive theme.

How to style

Throw on to watch the fireworks wearing your best party outfit. Or pair with a cosy argyle sweater for a NYE walk.
