8 Luxe Pajama-Inspired Looks for a Festive New Year’s Eve at Home

  • 6592

I have a confession: I don’t like going out on New Year’s Eve. Sure, I enjoy face glitter and popping Champagne with 300 of my closest friends just as much as the next millennial New York transplant, but when push comes to shove, the experience never lives up to the price of admission, and the evening always ends in frost-bitten anguish. I curse the number of times I’ve attempted to brave the streets in bare legs and open-toed stilettos (rather than a practical, arctic-grade snowsuit and moon boots to match). On those nights, I was all too eager to race home and throw on one of my favorite pajama sets. If you’re anything like me, a government-sanctioned order to ring in 2021 from the comfort of our own homes may not be such a terrible thing.

Of course, there is still the question of what to wear. You can indeed squeeze into the usual paillette-studded party dress, skimpy hemline and all, but during quarantine, we’ve grown accustomed to a certain standard of comfort and warmth that we aren't quick to part with. And yet, if not for “Auld Lang Syne,” then for the momentous occasion of 2020 coming to a close, never was there a better night to dial up the glitz and celebrate the New Year in style.

Our solution? An eveningwear-inspired pajama set, which is essentially a sweatsuit disguised as fancy-schmancy cocktail attire. It’s the perfect, high-gloss antidote to the monotony of staying at home every night for ten months straight, while still maintaining that cozy and forgiving feel we’ve come to value so highly this year.

From sumptuous jewel-tone velvets to ornate silken prints, you’ll be looking—and feeling—like a million bucks from the first pop-clink-fizz until the clock strikes 12. And, with all the money you’ll be saving on would-be regrettable bar tabs and midnight Uber rides, we highly recommend treating yourself to a few small extravagances to match your lavish pajama sets (think caviar blinis, hand-marbled party poppers, feather-lined satin slippers, and oysters on the half shell). It’s all in the name of self-care, honey!

Here, a dazzling array of the very best pajama-inspired party outfits––and everything else you’ll need––for a chic and luxurious New Year’s Eve at home.
