3 New Year's Eve Looks For Every Party

Every year, we try not to get stressed out about New Year's Eve. We say we're going to take it easy. No bottle service. No body-con sequins. Then, December 31 rolls around and all of a sudden we're waiting for Ashton Kutcher to come kiss us on the stage in Times Square (or was that the movie?) — or something equally breathtaking. But, this time around, regardless of our expectations, we're going to look the part. So, we put together three copy-now NYE ensembles that will ensure a great strike-of-midnight kiss, a fun evening, and an even better 2014.
Hit play on that "Auld Lang Syne" and read on.

Supper Club
There are tons of special-dinner options offered around the city, but you've got to have a five-star outfit to match. If the restaurant of choice is somewhere in between casual and fanciful, punch up your skirt-and-sweater outfit with blingy jewelry and statement kicks. A little sparkle will make the evening that much more festive.

House Party
Sometimes, all you need for a fun night is a bottle of wine, your home-stereo system, and a few friends to join the celebration. If this sounds like your dream NYE, you're in good company. And, we've got the right outfit to match. Go for comfortable basics with an extra flair. Add sexy heels to your comfy jeans look and add a blazer to sharpen it up.

Dance Floor
Lovers of the sequined, body-con dress take note: A more up-to-date version of this party-time staple is the beaded frock with a slip silhouette. The bright color of this little number is enough to liven up any dimly lit dance floor, but it is still loose enough to fit a sheer button-down underneath. Or, tie the top around your waist for a grunge-meets-glam outfit that will ring in the New Year just right.
Michael Kors Rollerball & Lip Gloss Duo, $22, available at Sephora; Magid Silver Clutch, $278, available at Amazon; Mango Pocket Textured Chiffon Blouse, $70, available at John Lewis; Topshop Pewter Bead Slip, $250, available at Topshop; Alexandre Birman Ankle Boots, $598, available at Shoescribe.
