Fashion Police: New Year's Eve Outfit Ideas

Thanksgiving and Christmas bring about food, family and excitement but New Year's Eve brings out the best dressed and well planned parties of the year. It's not the time for ordinary pieces. Wondering what the latest trends are for NYE 2011? Think short dresses, metallic, ruffles, shine, pizazz. Anything sparkle goes. Within reason. Last thing you want is to look "be-dazzled."

Although it's not nearly as exciting as buying a new outfit and sometimes a painful process, I am all about trying to piece together things I already have in my closet. In case you're stumped on what to wear, here are a few outfit ideas that are probably in your closet waiting for some love:

Black leggings or a short black skirt
Sequin top
Black cardigan or wrap
Glitter clutch (purse)
Large flower ring
Earrings that go "bling"
Ankle boot or something unexpected

Outfit 2 -- GIRLY GLAM
Tutu inspired dress
Wide belt
Classic black heel or a pair of flirty flats
Cheetah cardigan or some eye-catching layer with beads around the collar
Metallic purse

Outfit 3 -- CASUAL CHIC
Skinny jeans
Trendy shirt with metallic print or tank with ruffles
Knee high boots
Bright colored handbag
Hoop earrings
Chunky bracelet

If you do opt to go with the traditioin little black dress, add a little sparkle with eye-catching jewelry and a pop of color with a fun stiletto. And make sure your handbag is treated as part of the overall fashion look. It doesn't have to match the shoes or other accessories but it should blend well with the color scheme.
Hope these outfit ideas get your juices flowing! Even if you are just going to a friend's house for a casual get-together, I encourage you to glam it up just a bit. If anything, it's a fun excuse.
