The IT List: New Year’s Eve Style

The end of the year is rapidly approaching and with that comes the harrowing task of choosing what to wear during the Final Countdown of 2011. New Year’s Eve poses a difficult balancing act in terms of outfit selection. The key is to pick a festive ensemble with just enough sparkle that doesn’t make you look like a walking disco ball. Luckily, we’ve compiled some quick, budget-friendly ideas to propel you through to 2012 in style.

Jewelry, Jewelry, Jewelry! – What’s the easiest way to instantly add a bit of glitz to your outfit? If you couldn’t tell by the heading, it’s jewelry! Mix up a few sets of bangles for a bold statement or slide on an oversized cocktail ring (like the one below) for a look that is trendy, without being overpowering. Guys can add a touch of glitz to their look by adding a shiny watch.

Bold statement pieces give a whole new meaning to the phrase “RING in the New Year!”

Put Your Best Foot Forward – The old saying “the shoes make the outfit” is particularly true on a night as big as New Year’s Eve. Pair some metallic flats with a solid ensemble or glittery heels with a black dress and enjoy the intense shoe envy of your companions. Feeling extra daring? Try one of these wild styles, just remember to practice walking in them before heading out! Neon Converse adds the perfect amount of color to a guys’ all-black get up.

Hair Accessories – Create your own sparkly headpiece with a sequined headband or glittery barrette. These pieces add some fun to what you’re wearing without going over the top. If you are feeling particularly adventurous, get creative and make your own. Not sure how to wear your hair? The fabulous CollegeFashion has 3 simple yet sophisticated styles that celebrities are embracing this season. We love the Topknot – it’s perfect for dancing the night away plus you can easily add some sparkle with your homemade barrette!

The most important thing to remember is that it’s not what you wear, but HOW you wear it. Embracing what you have on is the ultimate stylish maneuver! Stick with these low-cost, high-impact suggestions and you’ll be sure to have a ball this New Year’s! Have any ideas of your own? Share them with us below!
