You may have spent two-thirds of your winter break having a conniption fit about your New Year's Eve outfit. And if you did it up right, you hopefully got to indulge in more sparkles and sequins than you might have seen on your last trip to Claire's (whether that was six days ago or in sixth grade, we won't judge).
Sadly, that dizzy midnight hour is long gone, and a new semester suddenly seems just around the corner. Your once-ironclad resolutions have probably already faded into a shiny, Champagne-bathed void, but there is one thing you can take with you into 2012: your outfit! The ensemble you worked so hard to put together doesn't have to wait until the next time someone throws a disco-themed party to see the light of day. With the right styling, you can be brilliant in your shimmering duds without blinding your professors and classmates. Shine on!
