Jennifer Sunwoo, Chief Merchandising Officer

Keeping it low key this year at a friend’s apartment where they’ll be hosting an intimate evening of celebrations. For the casual affair, I plan on wearing this fil coupé skirt with a cozy black cashmere sweater and open toe mink sandals—all Barneys New York’s collection. To finish the look, I’ll add these Hirotaka earrings.”

Though I’ll spend New Year’s Eve in the Dominican Republic, I’ll stay true to my Brazilian tradition of wearing white. The color is rumored to bring peace into the New Year—something the world needs a lot of right now.”

Michael King, VP, Communications

“One of my best friends will be hosting a NYE party at his home in NYC, which has now become a new tradition for our group of friends. Naturally, I will need a very warm and classic winter coat to get me to and from. This Loro Piana Ice Down Coat is wind and water resistant, so I’ll be prepared for any inclement weather the city may bring.”

“This A.L.C. dress gives disco ball vibes, especially with its festive, silver sequins. It’s perfect for apartment party-hopping in San Francisco, which is what I’ll be doing.”

This New Year’s Eve will be extra special, as I’ll be in Kyoto for my honeymoon. I plan on visiting one of the Buddhist temples to literally ring in the new year with a giant bell and observing local tradition. This Blazé Milano velvet blazer dress, with a bit of gold sheen, feels celebratory but will also keep me warm when paired with slim pants and boots.”

Claire Messano, Special Events Manager

“I love this holiday in the city! One of my best friends from high school hosts a party every year, so I’ll be celebrating with cocktails and dancing along with friends, both new and old. I’ve been lusting over this Ulla Johnson dress since I saw it in her runway show, and New Year’s Eve is the perfect excuse to splurge on something sparkly.”

John Totolis, VP/DMM, Men’s Tailored Clothing, Furnishings, & Children’s

“The greatest part about the New Year is the all-encompassing happy and positive attitude most people have. All the best celebrations start with a beautiful group dinner and end with great music. I’d wear a velvet jacket, as it can aways be dressed up with a formal shirt and tie or worn very relaxed with a t-shirt and jeans. The smoky grey hue of this one by Boglioli is a favorite, but it also comes in deep purple.”

“A mini dress is a must-have for the tropical party hosted by Soho House Miami this year. Catch me dancing the night away on the waterfront in a shimmery and flirty Area number.
