A lot of people may not realize it but the right pants do make an occasion more festive. Find a pair of trousers with some type of flair and then build the rest of your look around it.

There various choices that can be made and all of them make the pants shine.

Choosing the right trousers for your New Year’s Eve outfit is extremely important. Much like a shirt, depending on the situation and event you’re going to, the style of your trousers will change the tone of your look. It ultimately comes down to what you’re most comfortable in. If you’re staying in you could even wear some joggers for extra comfort and warmth. Smart trousers are always a better option than a pair of jeans if you’re wanting to look smart or even if you’re going for a smart casual look. And as New Years is an occasion, you may as well swap your normal jean attire for some

For some reason, gold and black are the unofficial colors for New Year’s Eve. So, why not get into the theme of the night. Instead of going all out and buying a full gold suit, you guys can simply find a Lamé blazer. Marc Jacobs has a great blazer for this occasion, but we all know that Marc isn’t cheap. If you guys want to save a dollar, ASOS has a similar blazer for much less. It’s not like you’re going to get to wear this thing every day.


Paint the Town in Color

When a celebration is in order, its okay be a little more flamboyant than normal. Find a vibrant color that will help you to stand out and put you in a celebratory mood. There are tons of colors to choose from and if all else fails, find a pattern or print. Floral prints have been extremely popular amongst men lately. The point is not just to look good and feel good, but have some fun as well.


Don’t Take Yourself Too Seriously

Remember, this is just one day on the calendar, but it’s not the most important day of the year. It’s okay to get a little silly and have some fun with your outfit. Don’t be afraid to incorporate a little costume action or get some accessories to accompany your look. For example, masks are a great accessory, even if you’re not going to a masquerade party. It’s just a fun thing to boosts everyone’s spirits.

Suited & Booted

Go ahead and get your suit and tie ish on for the New Year. The best way to make a man feel good, confident, stylish, and sexy is to hand him a fitted suit. If you want to look you’re best, especailly for a formal party, gra a 3-piece suit to stunt in. However, all of the other previous suggestions can still be utlizied along with your suit. So feel free to use them to stand out a little more.
