Outfit Ideas for New Year Office Party
Dress to impress at your New Year office party! Whether you're going to an office bash or want to look stylish for the night, make sure your outfits are appropriate—these ideas will help:
Mix & Match for Women
Printed Angrakha with a Contrast Bottom
It's a simple yet elegant look. Opt for jeans or contrast pants if you want something more casual and comfortable. Pair this beautifully v-necked Block Printed Angrakha Kurta with dark trousers or chinos—either way, works well!
A Straight-cut Kurta with Tapered Pants
It is a classic outfit idea for a New Year office party. A straight-fit kurta with jeans or pants is a versatile outfit that is perfect for any formal occasion in the office. You can pair your kurta with a denim jacket or a shrug; both look equally good. A Coral embroidered rayon straight fit kurta is ideal for a New Year party. Match it with green slub cotton tapered pants by EK or leggings and a traditional “jutti' to look trendy.
Ankle Length Ethnic Kurta with Straight Leg Pants
Ankle length kurta is one of the most popular outfit ideas for the New Year office party. Pairing a Hand block gold printed gathered festive Kurta with side slit with straight-leg pants will give you a stylish and festive look. You can pair it with pointed-toe pumps or heeled sandals to give a contemporary look.
A-line Satin Kurta with Dhoti Bottom
A-line kurtas with a dhoti-style hem look great for semi-formal office parties. Go for a more formal look with a Purple Festive Satin Kurta paired with a Light Peach Cotton Dhoti style bottom and nude heels. You can also wear a pair of black pumps to give your outfit an edgy look.
Sarees are traditional garments women wear on several occasions, including office parties. Made from silk or cotton fabrics—available in various colours and designs—they're perfect for festive get-togethers! To accessorise a Saree, you can wear matching bangles, rings or earrings with it to give it more appeal.
All these outfit ideas are versatile. You can wear them with heels, flat leather slippers or even loafers. You may wear them with a jacket or shrug—and of course, you're welcome to add an optional stole or dupatta!
Accessories for Your Outfit for New Year Office Party
You can wear a pair of stylish and elegant earrings, necklaces or bracelets to add glamour to your look. For an ethnic look, you can wear traditional jewellery like nose rings, Kundan earrings or a gold pendant set. For a more modern look, try wearing drop earrings with stones. You can also get creative with your accessories by adding a statement necklace or charm bracelet—and remember: there’s no limit to the number of accessories you can wear. Here are some ideas:
Necklaces add an elegant touch to any outfit, and this classic silver Lotus necklace by EK is no exception. This stunning piece is suitable for any Indian or Western occasion—from brunches to office parties to evening get-togethers.
A pair of earrings is always a good idea for an office party. You can go with studs or long dangly ones if you like.
A bracelet can be another accessory that will stand out just enough to catch people's eye but not so much that it would take away from the rest of your look. The Tree of Life Bracelet by EK is perfect for styling with any casual wear
Scarves, Stoles & Dupattas
Scarves, stoles and dupattas are another great way to add flair to your outfit without being too over-the-top. They can be draped loosely around the shoulders or tied at the front of your neck, so you will always have a new way to wear them! Check out the gorgeous Dupatta collection by EK by Ektaa Kapoor.
No matter the occasion or event, a bag can be an essential accessory. From small clutches to large carryalls, choose one that best compliments your outfit for the party.
Outfit Ideas for New Year Office Party For Men
- A formal kurta set for Men is a great way to combine form with function. You can wear it with jeans, depending on your comfort level - or go traditional by pairing it up with a pair of formal pants and shoes. Men's kurtas vary from modern cuts to traditional ethnic styles, with some featuring embroidery or the use of different fabrics like silk and cotton. The options are endless!
