If you’re attending a party or spending the countdown at a fun bar or restaurant than a cocktail dress, skirt + top combo, or a chic ladypants look are in order. Whether you’re going for dramatic colors & fun prints or basic black you can spice up your look with a bold shoe & tons of eye-catching jewelry.

And if you’re attending a gala, benefit, or other black-tie event you will be ringing in the New Year in a stylish floor or tea-length frock. Be sure to stand out from the other ladies by pairing your gown with layered gold or silver jewelry and statement pieces that’ll make your look 100% you.
