You don't have to pull out the party dress to get festive for NYE. Drawing a little inspiration from the men's department, Olivia Palermo proved that the tux is a chic (and pretty sexy) alternative to the usual holiday fare. So whether you're a no-frills kind of girl or you're looking to mix up your regular dressing routine, we present to you this all-occasion-appropriate alternative that's also not hard to re-create. Look for a tuxedo-style blazer and slim trousers (note: it doesn't have to be a matching suit). Then, add a white button-down — something silky will look especially elegant. As for the finishing touches, this is where you can glam it up with some feminine flair. Add interest with unique finds, like Olivia's plexiglass clutch, and a pair of statement heels, like a leopard-print pump à la Palermo or a heel in a brilliant color. Because the suiting is pretty understated, it leaves ample room to play with accessories, so even subtle additions, like Olivia's red nails (or a red lip) will have a major, NYE-worthy impact. Just shop our editors' picks below to channel the same chic play on the tux for any of your NYE plans.
