However, if you still have no clue what you’ll be wearing tomorrow night, don’t worry! We’ve come up with three sparkly and stylish head-to-toe NYE looks – hair and makeup ideas included. Simply scroll on down to check ‘em out:
Outfit Idea #1: Cozy Night In

If your NYE plans consist of lounging with friends or fam and watching the ball drop on TV, you’ll want to wear something cozy and low-key that still packs a stylish punch. Opt for a striped knit sweater with sequined detailing, because, in our opinion, every NYE ensemble needs a little sparkle. Add a pair of jade green skinnies as well as some super-comfy studded moccasins.
Style your hair into a chic, low bun — similar to the pic above — then accessorize that ‘do with a braided metallic headband. Shimmering blush will give your cheeks a rosy glow, while leopard print nail polish strips are a fun and low-maintenance touch. Finally, show off that mani with an oversized cocktail ring.
Outfit Idea #2: House Party

Whether you’re near campus or back in your hometown, odds are that someone you know is throwing a New Year’s bash. If you plan on attending a house party this year, wear something bold that’s sure to stand out in a crowd, like the outfit above.
To get this look, start with a black blouse – this one mixes chiffon and velvet to create a luxe look – and pair it with a pretty metallic skirt. Lace tights add a feminine vibe, while deep purple pumps lend a pop of color.Accessorize with gold chain earrings and a unique fur-trimmed bag.
As far as hair and makeup goes, mimic Natalie Portman’s look by styling your hair into soft waves and sporting a sultry smokey eye. For the finishing touch, paint your nails a gorgeous black-and-gold shade.
Outfit Idea #3: Fancy Night Out

If you’re attending a super-fancy NYE soiree, first of all, we’re jealous! Secondly, this is the perfect time to go all out with a sparkly, glamorous, “look-at-me” outfit. This gold sequined frock is the epitome of glam, and styling it with a tuxedo blazer creates a polished, party-ready look. Add a pair of platform pumps and sapphire blue stud earrings to continue the dressy look, then accessorize with a whimsical bow-shaped clutch.
Wearing your hair to the side complements the dress/blazer combo, while chrome nail polish gives your digits an awesome mirrored effect. Next, try wearing some false lashes for a movie star-worthy look. Finally, a deep red lip stain adds a pretty dose of color that won’t need reapplying.
