It’s that time of year again! What better way to celebrate than with a sparkly cocktail dress and a pair of show-stopping high heels that will surely turn heads all night long. One of this year’s hottest looks is a crop top with jewels and sequins, paired with a fun and flirty tulle or lamé skirt. If you can’t decide which outfit shines brighter, look no further than Refinery29’s article, “The Perfect Outfit For Your NYE Style Personality,” which features seven savvy Instagrammers who show how they bling in the new year.

If there is one night to be dipped from head to toe in glitter or wear a daring slit dress, it’s New Year’s Eve. It’s time to bling in the New Year. It’s time to sparkle and shine.

Tips for Finding the Perfect Dress for New Years

New Years is quickly approaching and the search for a dazzling dress is underway. Kerrie Mitchell Burke writes an article for StyleList.com giving us some tips to follow when searching for the perfect dress this holiday season.

Instead of settling for one you found in a hurry, you can follow these tips to find the dress of your dreams.

Kerrie advises that you remember the three C’s: classic, chic, and confident. A classic dress is one you can imagine yourself wearing for several years. I’ll admit that it’s easy to get persuaded into buying a trendy and flashy seasonal dress, but you might regret it next year when you discover that a whole new look is in fashion and your expensive dress is now out of style.

The second important C stands for chic. Looking chic is all about dressing modern, sophisticated, and flirty. There’s nothing like a little black dress to make you feel classy and chic. The silhouette and style options are endless. There are corset dresses, A-line dresses, and many more.

The third C stands for confident. Don’t forget to look for a dress that suits YOU the best. Think about your hair color, your skin tone, and your body type, and then find the dress that is most flattering for you. If you feel confident, you’ll look confident. If you want the dress to be very versatile, opt for one that is about knee length or just above the knees so that you’re not stuck going to a work event with a dress that’s too short. A dress with an open back can be very versatile because it’s sexy for a fun party, and it can easily be covered up with a sweater or jacket for a more business formal event.
