Night Styler: Ring In 2009 Lookin’ Mighty Fine
It’s hard to believe we’re about to celebrate our entrance into 2009 (Y2K was really almost 10 years ago?!?), but get over the shock, people, because that means it’s time to start lookin’ for that uber-hot outfit for the biggest party night of the year.

Ringing in the new year looking absolutely fabulous is a huge part of that NYE experience and while I’m not the biggest fan of sequins and fancy embellishments on a usual basis, New Year’s Eve is the perfect time to go all sorts of sparkly. Here are a few options for looking gorgeous on that big night. Gorgeous enough, in fact, that you will secure a midnight kiss, fo sho. Low on cash after the holidays? You can still find a perfect frock at Forever 21, Target, or those amazing post-Christmas sales.
Sparkly, sparkly, sparkly is a fun way to shine (pun intended) on New Year’s Eve, and you can either go over the top with pieces that are solid sequins, or you can go for more subtle pieces with a little less but still add a special sparkle and pizazz to any ensemble.
If ya don’t wanna go quite so sparkly, try to find something that’s got fun detailing that makes the piece stand out, like feathers, beading or studs.
If you’re wearing a dress, go with a pair of cute leggings or tights to complete the look while keeping your legs warm. If you decide to take the shirt and pants route, try a cute pair of black trousers instead of your usual jeans. Choose a pair that isn’t too baggy or too tight; that middle fit is the most classy and flattering.
As is always the case, fun accessories and shoes complete the look. Since it’s New Year’s, up the ante a bit with the jewelry – the bigger and blingier the better. Try oversized cuffs, rings or earrings. (Just not all at once; there can be too much of a good thing…even on NYE).
A fun & funky pair of heels makes any woman feel like a million bucks, but a cute pair of flats may be even better for the long night ahead.
Now you’ve got the perfect look, so get out there and celebrate!
