New Year’s Eve is always a big night for bashes, champagne, and all the festivities you can handle. But, just because you’re getting in on the party hopping doesn’t mean you have to force yourself into some uncomfortable outfit. Instead, you can style your pajamas or loungewear to create the perfect New Year’s Eve look.

NYE is one of the most stressful holidays on the calendar, IMHO. The expectations for sending off the past year while trying to start the new one right can be beyond overwhelming. It’s enough to make anyone want to call it and spend the night watching the ball drop from the peace of their own couch. Which is, honestly, a great way to ring in 2022. And luckily, loungewear and pajamas are so cute these days, you can feel like a star in your cozy clothes whether you’re staying in or going out.

If you’re anything like me, you probably spent most of 2021 in loungewear anyway, so it’s a fitting way to say goodbye. And, given that you’re going to have to be up and at ‘em until at least midnight local time, you might as well do it in the most comfortable way possible.
