The Best Tops for New Year's

Let’s talk about New Year’s—a time when people gather together to celebrate the beginning of a new chapter, toasting with champagne flutes, saying goodbye to the past, and looking forward to what lies ahead. For such an occasion, you need an outfit that will kick off your year right. Creating an entire look for New Year’s is stressful enough, so why not add one item that can elevate any outfit with glitter, sequins, satin, velvet, and more? These details will never go out of style for such a glamorous holiday, so stock up now before you’re left scrambling on December 31.

When you’re not feeling a dress, jumpsuit, or two-piece set, there's always a dependable top to guide your outfit in the right direction. Try wearing a festive top with relaxed vintage denim and strappy heels, or for a bolder look, wear it with leather leggings and lace-up boots. You can also create a monochrome look, add a sequin jacket, or throw on a fuzzy, faux-fur coat to top off your celebratory New Year’s outfit. Pair it with black skinny jeans, split denim, a silk skirt, or even biker shorts.

The options are endless with a fun, playful statement top for New Year’s, but we’ve rounded up the best ones for the occasion. Keep scrolling, and shop our favorite tops that will stand out at any New Year’s party.
