What to wear for New Year's Eve on a luxury yacht

What to wear for New Year's Eve on a luxury yacht

After a long festive season of parties, events and dinners the thought of planning yet another fabulous outfit for New Year’s Eve may understandably fill you with dread. But, whether you’re celebrating at home or hosting the perfect party yacht, this is no time to let yourself down on the sartorial front. Scroll down for all the inspiration you need to welcome in 2016 in style…

For him: **Clothes**

Your go-to look for formal occasions may be a classic black tux but New Year’s Eve is a great opportunity to push your normal style boundaries. Stick with your favourite black tuxedo trousers – this pair from Dolce & Gabbana will never go out of fashion – but choose a velvet jacket in a jewel tone for an understated yet eye-catching take on the look. Finish with a crisp white dress shirt and black bow tie for yacht parties or, if in colder climes, opt for a lightweight black knit.

Green slim-fit silk faille-trimmed velvet tuxedo jacket, £1,250, Kingsman at Mr Porter; Classic tuxedo trousers, £475, Dolce & Gabbana at Harrods: Slim fit wool polo neck sweater, £129, Hugo Boss


A well-dressed man can be measured by his accessories so make sure yours are subtle yet utterly chic. Add a dash of dandy-esque flair to your suit with Alexander McQueen’s jacquard evening slippers before carefully folding Etro’s abstract silk handkerchief into your breast pocket and fastening your shirt with De Grisogono’s masculine mother-of-pearl sea-inspired cufflinks. A classic black tie watch from Omega is a must-have, of course.

Floral-jacquard slippers, £435, Alexander McQueen at Mr Porter; Abstract silk pocket square, £80, Etro at Selfridges; White gold and mother of pearl cufflinks, POA, De Grisogono; Museum watch in white gold, £11,730, Omega

For her: **Clothes**

If there was ever a time to channel your inner 70’s disco queen then it is New Year’s Eve. A metallic mid-length dress with a modern silhouette and suede platforms heels are perfect for dancing the night away on the sun deck but, if your surroundings call for covering up, Christopher Kane’s embroidered biker strikes just the right balance between toughness and femininity. Finish with a full-on blow out and a metallic manicure for a look that will see you through to sunrise.

V-back pleated midi dress, £1,990, Proenza Schouler at Matches Fashion; Floral biker jacket, £2,350, Christopher Kane at Harrods; Kayden navy suede platform shoes, £525, Jimmy Choo


Of course, a statement dress calls for statement jewellery and nothing says "party time" quite like Percossi Papi’s intricate moon and star earrings. Pair with Piaget’s timeless Dancer watch and Misahara’s rope ring for a playful nautical take on the look that you’ll turn to for superyacht soirees time and time again. If you’re partying on your own superyacht a bag may not be necessary but, when it looks as good as Oscar de la Renta’s embellished clutch, it’s hard to resist.

Gold-plated multi-stone earrings, £980, Percossi Papi at Net-A-Porter; Embellished satin box clutch, £1,155, Oscar de la Renta at MyTheresa; Dancer watch in 18 carat pink gold with diamonds, £26,800, Piaget; Golden Universe II 18 carat gold ring, £1,250, Misahara
