New Year's Eve is just over a week away—do you have your outfit planned yet? If you had to take a big exhale after reading that sentence, we're guessing you don't, but don't worry because we've got you covered, even if celebrations will be low-key again this year.

Holiday party dresses are fun, but to save money and make your wardrobe go twice as far, picking out a versatile piece is key. Our style expert Mana Mansour took our challenge and used one beautiful piece—a versatile and comfy jumpsuit—and styled it four different ways to extend the life of this NYE fab find right into 2022! 

A night on the town

The key when looking for a great jumpsuit to wear all year round is to look for a more cotton-blend or crepe fabric, compared to sheer or velvet. This way you can add the sparkle but you can also take it away for more casual occasions. For this New Year's Eve look, we brought the sparkle right out with this gorgeous sequin blazer, the jewelled belt, crystal earrings and crystal-encrusted heels. This look is perfect for a night on the town.

Casual and chic 

If you're heading for a weekend away with the girls, but still want to look stylish, this is the look for you. Pairing the jumpsuit with a half-zip sweatshirt and everyone's favourite piece, the oversized shacket, gives it more of a cozy and chic feel. The key to this outfit is the puffer vest; it's short enough that it almost creates a cinched-in look to create a waistline so you don't feel so boxy, plus it keeps you warm if you're running errands or spending time outdoors. Plus, add these lug sole treaded boots from Zara to create an effortless gaucho look with your jumpsuit to take it to the next level of casual!

For the office 

For this office look, we're layering underneath the jumpsuit to make it a bit more formal. Pair the jumpsuit with a tight-fitted turtleneck (a winter wardrobe staple!) and a cropped tweed blazer, and you'll be comfy and fabulous all day long. Add some feminine accessories like a cute pearl bag and penny loafers to elevate the overall look.

Date night 

Remember date night doesn't always have to be this completely elevated look, you can also dress comfortably but stylish for the occasion, too! For this look, we're utilizing the jumpsuit for the pants portion of the piece. The key to this look is the cropped sweater! Most people might stray away from wearing cropped sweaters in the winter because it might expose their skin to the cold winter air. But pairing it on top of a jumpsuit with wide-legged pants like this allows you to feel comfortable and rock this trend! We also recommend stepping outside your black coat comfort zone and pairing this outfit with a forest green jacket, like this wool one from Ever New. Add some warm accessories like this cute hat, and these chunky zip-front boots and you're set for a night with your significant other!
