I Tried Thrifting New Year’s Eve Clothing - Here’s How It Went

The new year is quickly approaching, which means New Year’s Eve events are around the corner! New Year’s Eve fashion is super fun with all of the sequins, sparkles, and shimmer typically involved. However, a lot of the clothing that generally classifies as appropriate for New Year’s Eve is typically difficult to re-wear. Which is 1. Not very sustainable and 2. Kind of a waste of money. I’m not saying don’t shop for a new shimmer-filled sparkly outfit to ring in the new year, but I will say before you go out to the mall or shop the look online, hit up a few thrift shops first to see what’s already out there! That way you’ll have a completely unique NYE look that won’t break the bank. 

I challenged myself to visit my local thrift on a mission to find clothing that would make perfect New Year’s Eve outfits. Here’s how it went!

During the trip to my local Value Village thrifting for New Year’s Eve clothing, I basically had my eyes peeled for anything that sparkled. I came across this cute sparkly black tank with a cowl neck detail. I also found a pair of black leather pants which paired perfectly with the tank! These pieces paired with some platform heels and a clutch with some sparkle would be perfect for NYE.

I also found this purple shimmery top that could be paired with pretty much any bottoms to make a simple yet effective New Year’s Eve look.

Next, I found this colourful sequin dress that would be sure to turn heads at any NYE event! I thought it paired perfectly with a black blazer I found that had some beading details throughout it – making it totally NYE-approved.

When I came across this gradient sequin dress on the rack, I was super excited to pull it out and take a look, and I was not disappointed! The gradient reminds me of a night sky in a way, so it feels super fitting for NYE. I think it would be great styled with some sheer black tights, black heels, and maybe even an oversized blazer.

I think this silver dress by BCBG Max Azria would be great for a New Year’s Eve house party, possibly even dressed down with a knit cardigan thrown on top to serve cozy-glam vibes. Or simply worn as-is for a general glam look.

This was probably my favourite find of the entire visit. It feels like a modern style NYE dress and looks effortlessly chic with its boxy silhouette. I love the mix of sequin and sheer black fabric too, it just feels luxe. I think it would be perfect for absolutely any NYE event!

The last couple of pieces I found were a leather black skirt with some hardware details, which add a bit of grunge, and another sparkly tank! One thing I learned on this thrift trip is that there is no shortage of sparkly tank tops at the thrift. I picture the tank tucked into the skirt and paired with some knee-high boots and a moto jacket to give a more “cool-girl” NYE vibe.
