If you still don’t have a New Year’s Eve outfit, you’re not alone. See, as much as we make resolutions not to procrastinate every year, it still happens — even to the degree that it means putting off your own shopping after buying tons of gifts for other people this holiday season. And perusing through social media doesn’t help: celebrities are already rolling up in their flyest ‘fits, friends are sitting pretty on vacation, random boutique advertisements keep trying to sell you on their overpriced picks. But here’s the thing. It’s not too late for you, because with Remezcla’s help, you’re about to look as great as your favorite Latinx artists — at a fraction of the cost.

Whether you’re a girly girl, a real chingona, a streetwear snob or an elegant papi — there’s an outfit and dupes here for you. You’re welcome.

Jennifer Lopez

Maybe you have a flair for the dramatic. If so, what better day to pull out all the stops than on New Year’s Eve? While J.Lo. looks sensational every day (even her athleisure looks have us stunned), this white lacy jumpsuit goes the extra mile with a skirt attachment.

You can find a perfect dupe with this Plunging Lace Jumpsuit in White for $69 and a true jumpsuit alternative with’s White Lace Contrast Plunge Jumpsuit for $46. Both ideal for dancing around comfortably all night, while still looking glam AF.


Last year, Miguel played it cool in an all-black ensemble — save for a signature Cuban link chain.

You might be able to pull this outfit off straight out of the closet already; but if not, get yourself a simple black turtleneck (this one from Uniqlo won’t break the bank) and dress it up with a black suit jacket and pants. That chain, though, might break the bank — so if you don’t have one already, ask whoever’s the realest G in your family to borrow theirs.

Amara la Negra

You didn’t think we’d have a New Year’s Eve outfit list without Fashion Nova making an appearance now, did you? Love or hate the brand, they do know how to do party ‘fits on a budget, especially in an inclusive range of sizes — meaning you won’t need to go through the headache of brands that don’t understand what hips are. Be like Amara la Negra and get a practical jumpsuit with some bling, of course.

While the same jumpsuit pictured in Amara’s photo is no longer listed on the brand’s site, these two jumpsuits make for just as great a statement: The Club Goin’ Up Rhinestone Jumpsuit for $29.99 is a little more subtle at a great cost, whereas if you really want the wow factor, there’s this Catch A Falling Star Rhinestone Jumpsuit for $100.

Kali Uchis

If you’re trying to channel Colombiana Cinderella vibes this New Year’s, then the gown Kali Uchis wore last fall definitely fits the bill.

Grab this Tight Back At You Ruched Dress for $30 (on sale!) from NastyGal if you’re looking for a short version of the dress. But for the full effect, go for this Florence hammered-satin dress also on sale at $115.50, available on Net-a-Porter.

Look, if you’re not into this whole glamor thing, we get it. Maybe your fashion identity is a little more fun or laid-back, like J “Style Influencer of the Year” Balvin. Last New Year’s, José pretty much wore the same outfit for several days — think of it as his own Steve Jobs uniform. And it’s really simple to copy.

You can get the same “Reggaeton” shirt sported by Balvin here for $19.99. Even throw some electric pink Manic Panic dye on your head, and call it a day.

Girl Ultra

If I’m taking inspiration from any artist on this list, it’s Girl Ultra. Her faux-fur moment from last New Year’s Eve is understated while still being super chic — and especially fitting if you think about all those “roaring twenties” parties we’re about to see now.

The best part is, you can incorporate this look into any outfit you already have. All you need is a stole, of which you can find plenty of affordable options on Amazon (or at your local thrift store, if you’re into that!)

Confident men wear pink 😉 #latinamas

Okay, so we know this outfit technically isn’t from last year, nor is it at all holiday adjacent. Romeo Santos actually wore it to the Latin AMAs recently. But that doesn’t mean you can’t copy it for New Year’s this time around. If you’re a confident man, wear pink like Romeo. 2020 will thank you.

And if you really want to go all out, turn this already delicate palette up a notch with this floral satin suit jacket that’s on sale now for $40.50 on

Cardi B

Our queen of being extra. La Caldi always comes through with the drip, and her outfit to ring in the New Year last year is no exception.

While she opted for a leg-baring bodysuit, there are ways to make her ‘fit more wearable. Take a bodysuit like’s Shape Red Lace Mesh Long Sleeve Stripe Bodysuit on sale for $24 and tuck it into a pair of jeans, or get a complete look with this $26 Lace Long Sleeve Plunge Jumpsuit instead.

keeping tabs with these foos

For all the streetwear stans with Chicano roots, just turn to Cuco. Yes, it’s ok to wear your Air Forces with your guayaberas — it’s called fashion, look it up!

We’re not even going to give you a link for this one, though. Ask your papi or abuelo or head to the barrio thrift shop if you’re trying to make this your energy in 2020.

Bad Bunny

Did your mami ever tell you to ring in the new year dressed all in white? Maybe this is the year to embrace it. Go in with pure vibes only, just like Bad Bunny did for the start of 2019 — decked out in a white turtleneck and suit pairing.

Like Miguel’s look, check out Uniqlo for a toasty turtleneck and grab yourself a dapper white suit at Asos for a reasonable price tag.
