New Year’s Eve is just around the corner and the expectations — sartorial and otherwise — are mounting. Whether you’re hitting up an over-the-top shindig that would make Truman Capote proud or ringing in 2017 at home with dear friends (Seamless and Netflix among them), the night merits an extra special outfit. Over the years, “extra special” has come to mean “ultra high wattage,” but we understand that full-on sequins isn’t everyone’s cup of champagne. That said, those who eschew the quintessential glittery cocktail attire still want a look that’s eye-grabbing and festive. And there’s no shortage of strategies for composing such a thing — after all, metallics were one of 2016’s (may it rest in peace) standout trends. Above, we’ve rounded up 20 tastefully sparkly New Year’s Eve outfit ideas to suit any glitter tolerance or venue. May 2017 be your most fashionable year yet!
