We know the drill: between all of the November and December work soirees, family parties, and formal dinners, the last thing you want to do is come up with another dressy outfit. So you sink into a sweater-and-leggings routine to get through the cold weather. However, as soon as the New Year rolls around, the resolution phase hits and you decide to dress like a glamorous Upper East Sider for the rest of winter.
But why not start on New Year's Eve? After all, it is a great opportunity to put your best (fashionable) foot forward to start off 2014 properly. Below are four stylish New Year's Eve outfit options to inspire you. The best part? None of them require making poor financial decisions, as they are all less than $100 total.
The Classic New Year's Eve Celebration - $93.42
It should come as no surprise that New Year's Eve is the time to go all-out with your look. You can be fashionably eccentric and as glittery as a disco ball, and nobody will bat their eyelashes.
We love the idea of donning gold glitter shorts, a sheer black top, and cool booties. Be sure to wear opaque black tights and grab a bolero jacket to keep your shoulders warm while you are outside.
Casual Ball Drop Get-Together- $83.63
Even if all of your closest friends are opting for leggings or pajamas at their annual ball-drop watch party, there's no need you have to go that low-key.
New Year's outfits should always have a little bit of sparkle, no matter how casual the event is. That's why we love this shimmery scarf and gorgeous set of earrings. The rest of the outfit can be easy: boots with boot socks, a bright top, and your trusty pair of jeans.
Jazz Club or Piano Bar - $98.74
If you'll be ringing in the New Year at a swanky jazz club or piano bar, you should opt for a sparkly romper. Wear gorgeous cobalt stilettos and a funky jacket. Jewels are a crucial part of any NYE outfit, and this heartthrob of a glamorous necklace form H&M looks like a million bucks (but is only $12.95!).
Elegant Dinner - $82.25
If a sophisticated dinner is on your schedule for NYE, make sure your outfit doesn't disappoint. A chic cream dress with sequin detail is a glam choice. Add an intricate pair of tights and bright pumps to add a "pop!" Pair the look with some standout jewels for your ears to complete the look.
