If you're planning a trip to New York City around the holidays, it's important to learn how to dress in New York on NYE. Compared to the process women have to go through to find the perfect NYE outfit for the city, you have it easy. There are a few simple tips to keep in mind when dressing for New York on NYE.
- Button down and slacks. Surely you've heard the K.I.S.S. theory — Keep It Simple Stupid. Employ that theory when you get dressed for New York on NYE. Stick with a plain yet high quality button-down shirt, wife-beater undershirt, and a pair of nice comfortable slacks. Go with either a white, navy, black, dark grey, or dark brown (the last two options really look great for a night on the town) button-down and black slacks. Women in NYC love this look on men for NYE. Avoid bright blinding colors like yellow or red.
- Wear long johns. In case you didn't know it, it's extremely cold in New York on NYE. Think you're going to get off the train and walk outside with just a long sleeved button down on? Think again. Wear a pair of long johns under your clothes (shirt and pants) when you're patrolling the streets in New York on NYE. They won't affect how your outfit looks but will keep you warm and toasty as you're walking those cold NYC blocks. Take them off in the bathroom of the club if you want before getting it in on the dance floor. Feel free to toss the long johns, they're cheap.
Wear a pea coat. One accessory that all debonair New York City men wear in cold weather is the pea coat. When you dress in New York on NYE finish off your outfit with one of these coats. It will keep you warm throughout the night and boost your looks about 200%. Stick to a black or dark navy color.
