Perlis' New Year's Eve Style Guide for Men

New Year's Eve Style Guide for Men

New Year's Eve in New Orleans is an incredible experience thanks to our city's vibrant energy and unique Southern sensibility. Wherever the evening takes you, it's important to wear clothing that celebrates your personal style and fits in with the recommended attire for your chosen celebration.

No matter what your personal tastes in fashion, we have some suggestions that will ensure you look your best and can ring in the New Year in style.

What to Wear for a Casual New Year's Eve House Party

Whether you're hosting your own New Year's Eve celebration or attending a casual house party at a friend's home, you can generally be as comfortable as you want.

Cozy jeans or khakis and your favorite Perlis polo shirt are the perfect laid-back option. You never know what the weather in Southern Louisiana has in store this time of year, so be sure to bring a pullover sweater with you just in case.

What to Wear to Go Clubbing in the French Quarter on New Year's Eve

It can be tricky to figure out the perfect outfit when preparing to spend NYE in one of the clubs or bars along Bourbon Street. You'll want to look good without being too casual -- after all, it's a special night!

Before finalizing your outfit, check the club's website, as many have specific dress codes for nights out -- or at least for New Year's Eve.

A nice modern suit paired with a slim-cut t-shirt is always a safe option for clubs. You'll end up looking put-together, stylish, and sophisticated.

Alternately, a dressy casual style usually works well. Try tailored jeans that fit your body and one of our Crawfish Polos in a darker color like black or navy.

Take some time for proper grooming to ensure you look your best. Brush or comb your hair, throw on some cologne, and put on nice shoes that will be comfortable for dancing. Baseball caps may not be allowed, as a heads up.

What to Wear to a Formal New Year's Eve Gala

When spending the night at a swanky soiree, or going to one of the city's many black tie events, it's important to look your very best.

Choose a dark three-piece suit for a semi-formal event, but since New Year's Eve is a celebratory occasion, don't be afraid to pair your suit with some fun accessories. For a formal gala, opt for a tuxedo. Don't worry, we rent tuxes at Perlis. Simply complete our online measurement form to get started.
