Drop the Ball in Sequins and Sparkles

Party dresses

Sparkles and sequins were a huge part of the runways in every city and every season during 2016. There’s no better time to glow than when that sparkly ball drops on New Year’s Eve. For a showstopping NYE outfit idea, look no further than a rhinestoned gown—especially if you’re heading out to a gala or a fancy dress event.

Why not reflect all the good things coming your way this year with your own sparkly head turner? You can’t miss with sequins and shiny fabrics on New Year’s Eve, and there are lots of ways you can wear them. These gleaming fashion items are reminiscent of fireworks, glitter balls, and party favors—making you the life of the party!

An attention-grabbing sequin maxi dress is sure to focus all eyes on you, well before the ball drops in Times Square. The long length will keep your legs warm on the chilly night, while the plunging neckline flatters feminine curves, solving the question of what to wear on New Year’s.

An understated rose gold gown would pair well with a metallic gold necklace and earring set. If you prefer a more dramatic look, opt for a maxi dress in rich burgundy. This color goes with almost any skin tone or hair color, and it’s sure to match with the holiday colors of any New Year’s Eve gathering. Try accessorizing this stunner with glitzy faux diamond post earrings.

Speaking of shiny, let a velvet dress take you from the cocktail party to the dance floor to your New Year’s kiss under the stars. Deciding what to wear for New Year’s Eve is not a problem when you wrap yourself in shimmery black crushed velvet for a night you won’t forget. Kick off the year right with a flirty pair of faux suede heels that will get you where you want to go.

Baby, It’s Cold Outside

Going out outfit

Most of us live in regions of the country where outside temperatures drop, right along with the New Year’s Eve ball. When the night is chilly, but the party’s outdoors, you’ll be warm and toasty tucked inside these trendy, cuddly fashions.

Still wondering what to wear on New Year’s? Be a frolicking fur baby in this fun party dress in classic black. The above-the-knee hemline gives you freedom of movement for impromptu swings around the dance floor, and it goes amazingly well with boots, like zip-up knee-highs in faux suede.

Of course, you can’t be expected to go without sufficient cover on one of the coldest evenings of the year! Go under wraps with a coat, complete with a fur-trimmed hood. The generous pockets will help keep your mitts from freezing until you’re ready to throw your arms up to celebrate the first minute of 2017!

What to wear for New Year’s Eve—solved! Be sure to top those tendrils with a warm and fashionable knit beanie. Capped with a whimsical faux fur pom-pom, these beanies symbolize your resolution to have fun in the upcoming New Year.

Elevate your New Year’s Eve outfit with sparkly shoes that are comfortable, yet fashion-forward. These sparkly silver heels are made of materials that can withstand all kinds of outdoor NYE weather. Plus, they’ll bring you out and home again, all without ever needing to click your heels.

The Business End of Things

Formal wear

For many women, New Year’s Eve starts with a day at the office. You may not be able to rock sequins and sparkles behind your desk, but you can make a powerful stance against business as usual with these formal, yet elegant fashion selections for the working girl on NYE.

Suit-inspired rompers spell serious business in the daytime. To transition to nighttime celebrations, add a kicky pair of heels and a chunky scarf, and you have an outfit that will take you from morning to...well, morning!

If you prefer the idea of combining tops and bottoms instead of a one-piece, try fun flared pants that elongate the leg. They give the illusion of a long, swingy skirt along with the security and comfort of pants.

Classic dresses will never go out of style for work attire. These swingy frocks with scoop necks can be combined with a neck scarf and boots to add warmth, as well as style—just in time for your NYE party. The stretchy fabric is deceptively comfortable, and it will easily take you from meeting to meetup with minutes to spare.

Adorn your neck with classic pearls that give you an understated sophisticated elegance on this last night of 2016. A dress with pearls already attached make choosing jewelry fast and easy, carrying you through your NYE celebrations in style.

Define Yourself in Denim

Holiday sweaters

Denim offers casual, but chic styles for a comfortable night out on the town on New Year’s Eve. Denim goes with anything, can be dressed up or down, and is suitable for a variety of venues.

Distressed jeans communicate casual, but can be elevated when paired with a sparkly top or chunky scarf. Skinny jeans help balance out your shape when combined with an asymmetrical tunic, and grungy jeans with cutouts are perfect for parties where comfort is key.

If you want to keep the comfort, but ramp up the sparkles, try some glittering jeggings and pair them with a simple top and strappy heels.

For footwear, sprinkle festive sparkles in your New Year’s Eve attire with a pair of bedazzled heels. They’ll elevate your denim jeans, taking you through the night with aplomb. Classic jewelry can also complement a casual look when combined with denim. Opt for jewelry in reflective materials, such as a faux diamond and gold necklace.

The Comforts of Home

Tunic sweaters

Are you the type who appreciates the simplified New Year’s Eve experience at home? Let the rest of the city freeze outside while you enjoy lounging around in comfort with your paramour. Enjoy watching the ball drop in Times Square with your favorite friends at home.

You don’t have to forsake fashion for comfort while watching the world celebrate the last night of 2016 from the comfort of your sofa. Choose festive lounge pants that double as workout pants, so you can cuddle up just as easily as you can do the cat-cow Yoga pose.

Pair lounge pants or soft leggings with oversized sweaters that give you room to stretch and move. The last thing you want on the last night of the year is to feel constricted or confined. Oversized sweaters will make you feel warm and safe without cramping your style.
