New Year’s Eve (a.k.a. the best excuse all year to dress up, try something new and get downright creative with your look) is right around the corner! Don’t get us wrong, we’re all for a well-executed sequin moment, But when it comes to New Year’s Eve, maybe the best way to stand out is to actually go for something more…subtle. This year, we’re resisting the seduction of the sequin by embracing outfits that still feel special enough to ring in the New Year, but don’t involve any extra-sparkly sparkles. So whether you’re gearing up for a girls’ night out, a quiet evening in or something in between, these 5 outfit ideas will put an end to the dreaded what-to-wear dilemma on the biggest party night of the year.
