New Year’s Eve Outfits for Kids

New Year’s Eve Outfits for Kids

It’s party season, and with New Year’s Eve right around the corner, there’s plenty of events and parties to dress up for. Ringing in the New Year can be a little different when you’ve got the kids to think about, but dressing them up can be hassle-free with our kids New Year’s Eve outfit ideas! Whether you’re heading to a black-tie event, snuggling up watching movies at home, or braving the cold to watch the fireworks, we’ve got you covered.

Glitz & glamour

New Year’s Eve is the time to go all out. That means lots of gold, sparkles, sequins, and bow ties! If you’re headed to a black-tie event or New Year’s Eve party with a formal dress code, your little ones will look the part with the help of our girls and boys special occasion wear.

Black and gold are great colors to opt for this time of year; they’re popular New Year’s Eve colors without being overly ‘holiday’, making them wearable all year round. Girlie girls love wearing anything with frills and sparkles, and we have just the dress for them: the Stars Halter Dress is adorned with gold sequin stars and has a fun, ruffled tulle overlay. The perfect party dress, we say! Just as glamorous and with a hint of glitz, the Evaleen Black Halter Dress with Gems is a showstopper. If she’s not a fan of wearing black, this dress also comes in festive gold, too.

Winter white is a perfect option for any holiday event, and the Dyanna Party Dress is no exception. With a beautiful tulle ruffled skirt fit for a ballerina and bodice embellished with ornate sequin detailing, she’ll never want to take it off. If only it came in adult sizes, too!

Boys can ever go wrong with a tuxedo for a formal, black-tie occasion. He’ll look oh-so handsome in this white tuxedo suit Jacket, black tux pants and shirt. Finish off his dapper look with a signature black bow tie. If he finds wearing a full tux a little too restrictive, a cool blazer is also a great formal option. We love the Green Gables Velvet Blazer. Velvet is a classic festive fabric, and the rich green color is perfect for the holiday season.

Home for the Holidays

We get it, spending New Year’s Eve with young kids often means cozy nights in rather than long nights out. Grab the popcorn bowl, put on your favorite holiday movie and get ready for a fun-filled evening of cuddles with the kids! Ring in the New Year together with matching family pjs. The festive Red Deer Pajamas are available in kids, adults and baby sizes, so the whole family can snuggle up in Christmas jammies. 

Staying home but hosting a party? We’ve got some smart but not too smart party looks for those New Year’s Eve games nights. Girls can never go wrong with a dress. They’re comfortable and can be dressed up or down.

  • Check you out!: The Quinn Dress is the perfect, stay-at-home New Year’s Eve dress; the stretchy waistband means she won’t feel restricted when playing with friends, and the adorable red, white and black plaid is about as festive as you can get.

  • Nothing says party dress like sequins: The Star Sequin Flare Dress is the perfect, semi-formal party dress. The easy A-line silhouette makes it extremely comfortable to wear, while the delicate tulle fabric and sequin star design add a subtle touch of New Year’s glam.
  • Here’s one for the boys: Shirts are ideal for occasions which call for semi-formal attire. This Clay Bates Corduroy Shirt can be worn more casually, unbuttoned with a t-shirt layered underneath or buttoned up for a smarter look. Cotton shirts are warm and soft on the skin whilst offering a little bit of stretch. The Boys Dino Print Button Down Shirt is also a handsome cotton shirt option if you have a dino fanatic on your hands. Team with his favorite chinos to complete this smart-casual, party-ready look.
