Shoes happen to be one of the most important aspects of your NYE outfit. With all this formal wear ensuring you will get into the most exclusive clubs and restaurants at the brink of the New Year, you want to have at least one “personal statement item” that expresses your individuality. Distressed burgundy combat boots are a show stopping way to add that extra punch to your all black ensemble:
Pair these radical red shoes with simple White Enamel Knot Cufflinks
, which are sure to go with any and every shirt you have in your closet. They’ll look extra shiny on NYE too.
White! Remember that less-than-popular gradation? Armani has you covered with this festive sports-coat on sale just in time for tonight. The thing about wearing white during the winter months is it has to be off-white–not bleached stark white. If it has a “vintage” look, you’re golden. Or whiten..?
Pair your off-white clothes with a rugged off-white accessory, like these super cool digs from Maison Martin Margiela. Remember: it’s all about the shoes and accessories. Plus we’ve never seen shoes like this before. Pair this beige/off white attire with red layered flower cufflinks
for a textured look.
Remember what Mama always told ya? Put a hat on! Your head releases and retains the most heat in your body, so it’s important on cold winter nights to cover it up. But NYE is not a time for boyish ball caps and beanies. Try this sleek driving hat or basic gentlemen’s cap from Barney’s New York. And make sure your tie is secure on your shirt with a basic tie bar from CLM

Make it a red carpet experience. Tis the season to look positively fly this New Years Eve. Here are some of the hottest trends, by the best designers around town, some of which happen to be on sale. (Yeah for post-christmas sales!). Let’s start with your basic white collared shirt: it’s basic, well made, and yes you can wear it again after the 31st until it fades to yellow. Then of course, gentlemen, it’s time to get another. A must-have closet staple (assuming you didn’t get any under the Christmas tree).

Now to cover the white shirt you have many options. The most reliable and unassuming is the black Two Button sports Jacket with a blinging pair of designer cufflinks. You can’t be wearing Alexander McQueen without designer cufflinks, right?

SLACKS! What will you wear on your bottom? Most men today can wear the slim fit pants that are all the rage. It is not, I repeat, not okay to be wearing relaxed fit or loose fitting pants on NYE or any other day for that matter. Tighten it up.

Bring your information with you–maps, directions, music, you name it, it can fit on these real working USB Cufflinks from Ravi Ratan:

Top it all off with a, yes you got it, a top hat. This one won’t break your bank and is moderately priced from Barneys:
All in all, you can’t go wrong with making black and white accessories your “thing” for the New Years. It assures you will look amazingly slimmer and will even make your lady look good. Happy New Year friends.
