If your perfect NYE consists of raising a toast at all your favorite watering holes, you'll want an outfit that guarantees comfort — and just the right dose of low-key chic. Start with a figure-flattering skater skirt, add a muscle tee and a varsity jacket, and polish it off with a pair of ankle boots made for traipsing around the city. A mustard-hued crossbody and simple earrings contribute a bit of ladylike flair.
