Things are not going to miraculously switch back to normal as we ring in 2021, but no one can say that we didn’t try– at least in our sartorial choices.

Here are five different outfits for all the ways you might be celebrating.

1. Lounging in Luxury

Thanks to Netflix’s The Crown, Princess Diana fashion is making a comeback. We are obsessed with her “I’m a Luxury” jumper. For the first time since the ‘90s, the design is back as an official, exclusive collaboration between Gyles & George and Rowing Blazers ($295). Pair with everything shimmery and shiny: Heroine Sport’s shiny silver leggings ($99), Gorjana’s layered necklace set ($108), and Miu Miu’s embellished bow ($480) fit for royalty.

Instead of glass slippers, try Minnie Rose’s cashmere and pom pom slipper ($139).

And to create a party mood, Bella Freud’s 1970 gold diffuser set ($180) conjures the New York City punk scene with notes of black musk, sandalwood and vetiver.

2. Fresh Kicks for the Fresh Air

Spending time in nature to reflect is always a good idea. And it just might be one of the safer ways to celebrate New Year’s Eve.

To look stylish and stay warm, we start with Perfect Moment’s star graphic water and wind repellant bibs ($590). Layer up with Obermeyer’s sunshine yellow ski jacket ($329) and this super soft leopard beanie ($65).

Get those snowshoes while they’re still in stock! TSL’s Symbioz Hyperflex Adjust Snowshoe ($299.95) has a carbon-reinforced frame that adapts to technical terrain on uneven trails.

3. Wake Me Up Next Year

If you just want to give up on the night altogether, this is your year. In fact, you’ll be doing your civic duty.

But why not make it a luxurious evening of self-care and relaxation? You’ll need these silky soft starry night pajama set ($140) and to fluff your nest: Parachute Home’s signature bedding set ($359-$459) made with 100% European flax.

For a spa-like atmosphere, light Diptyque’s limited edition Roj Mageste candle ($78). Meanwhile Foreo’s face masks ($10) pairs with Foreo’s UFO device ($89) to infuse its essences below the skin’s surface using high frequency T-Sonic pulsations. Beauty sleep and sweet dreams are close at hand after reading Ross Gay’s life-affirming poems in Catalog of Unabashed Gratitude ($15.64)

4. Walkin’ After Midnight

In lieu of standing out in freezing temps waiting for the ball to drop, how about awalktail?” Start with a festive and glamorous faux shearling coat from Goen.J ($840) and can urban chic Isabel Marant leather skirt ($2,505).

Skip the high heeled boats and go for Sorel’s puffer jacket inspired sneakers ($190) instead.

This slouchy beanie ($125) in shades of midnight and blues and this versatile Gorjana chain link and crystal bracelet ($60) elevate any ensemble with subtle luxury.

And don’t forget a mask! Yes, it costs $140 but it’s Marine Serre’s iconic moon print an essential piece for fashion insiders.

5. Sexy Night In

Make staying in an arousing affair that can rival the excitement of any gala. Thistle and Spire makes some of the most heart-racing and exquisite lingerie around- like this ruby red Sidney playsuit ($98). And Piferi’s mesh pumps ($648) dial up the temperature even further.

A little jewelry goes a long way. We love Mukhi Sisters’ ruby and rose gold single earring ($1,525) for a confident and edgy statement. Louis Vuitton’s monogram flower bracelet ($468) adds a touch of whimsy.

And nails in the appropriately named Warm Nude ($18) from Dear Sundays, a clean beauty brand, keeps the focus on you.
