The start of a new year is a time for reminiscing and setting goals for the upcoming year. That being said, New Year’s Eve is a night to celebrate your accomplishments, make loud noises at the stroke of midnight, and maybe even play dress-up.
What’s more fun than putting on a festive, celebratory outfit, and dressing up Fido to match? To take the stress off your costume-planning, we’ve put together some practical (and a few not-so-practical) costume ideas that will help you and your dog truly sparkle on New Year’s Eve.
As the holidays are coming to a close, there’s likely plenty of tinsel lying around. Before it’s put far away in storage, wrap some around Fido to get the feathered-boa look.
It’s perfect for a photo opp! But keep a continuous eye on your dog, make sure the tinsel isn’t too tight, and ensure no loose ends are hanging that could get caught.
Less is More
Sometimes, less is more. According to this dog, all you need is a fresh brushing and a simple black bow tie to ring in the new year.
Pantyhose for Any Occasion
Pantyhose come in a variety of hues, prints, and lengths. As for our advice on picking the perfect pair for Fido? Opt for lace pantyhose when going to a black tie affair, and a more subtle black or gray for a friendly gathering.
A Pop of Color
Sometimes, all you need is a pop of color…and a tutu. Add a “Happy New Year” party hat, and you have a complete New Year’s Eve look!
A Touch of Class
Step up Fido’s game at this year’s New Year’s Eve party with a strand of pearls (or a necklace of your choice). Your dog just may be the classiest pooch at the party!
The Party Animal
You can’t go wrong with this party look. Find a bandana that matches the party hat, and Fido will get endless attention all night long!
Pick a Theme
Who said New Year’s Eve was all about party hats, bow ties, and sparkle? Show up at the party this year with a themed look and you’re sure to win just about any costume contest out there.
Finally, you simply can’t go wrong with this classic New Year’s Eve look.
From party hats to tutus, there is a New Year’s Eve look for just about any dog out there. Even though dressing up can be a fun part of the celebration, remember to take a second to reflect on all of the fun moments you and Fido shared this last year.
