5 NYE Party Style Tips for Couples

When it comes to holiday cocktail attire, you don’t want to clash with your date, but it’s hard to coordinate without being overly matchy-matchy. And especially on New Year’s Eve, your want your style as a couple to shine. To soothe your winter wardrobe woes, we asked the queen of chic, Christine Andrew of Hello Fashion, and husband Cody Andrew, founder of men’s blog, Hello His, for advice on how to rock the big night away in style with your partner in crime. Can you say #CoupleGoals? Keep reading for some of their top tips!


1. Add a splash of color. There’s nothing that gets you more in the spirit of the season than a bright holiday red. Incorporating this vibrant hue into your outfit — whether it’s a skirt, high-waisted trousers, or just a hint in your accessories — adds the perfect festive touch.

2. Take it to the next level. Take your NYE ensemble to the next level by pairing your skirt or trousers with a sparkly sweater. You can also try adding fun, colorful pieces like this pink, feminine jacket. For a more traditional look, a black turtleneck sweater always works for any winter occasion, and will effortlessly complement your date’s attire too.

3. Get your textile on. Another chic way to complement your S.O. without looking too matchy is by mixing in some cool textiles to your outfit. This plaid dress shirt has a hint of red, just enough to give off a subtle holiday feel. It adds dimension to a night-out outfit, and can easily be worn during the rest of the year as well.

4. It’s all about the details. We spiced up Cody’s outfit with a fun polka-dot print bow tie. Color coordinating the little details is a great way to dress up an outfit, and another subtle way to look like the perfect pair without being over-the-top.

5. Dress for the occasion. Looking like you’re both going to the same party is half the battle. It seems like men like to keep it simple and dress down, so encourage your guy to get fancy with you. It’s fun to feel festive together and there’s definitely something sexy about a guy dressed a little fancy.

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
