New Year’s Eve is easily the best day of the year. You get to stay up way past your bedtime, you can pop party poppers at people all night long in the spirit of festivity without getting yelled at, and you can just engage in general tomfoolery because, hey, come midnight, it’ll all have happened last year, right? But the absolute best part, in my opinion, is that you get to dress up in your most exciting party clothes and strut your stuff like an A-list celeb. Not sure how to plan your NYE attire this year? Well, you’re in luck, because I’m in a giving mood (one of my New Year’s resolutions this year is to be more generous, you know). Here are 10 ways to dress like the high-profile celebrity you know you are this New Year’s Eve without paying the A-list price! (Thanks, Macy’s!)
11. Crystal Earrings
There are few things that will make you feel immediately more glamorous than a pair of ornate, crystal earrings. Just look at Mindy Kaling’sstyle if you need convincing.
10. Bold Lips
If you’re anything like me, you’ll rock a bold lip for any and every possible occasion, but there’s just something about New Year’s Eve that makes you want to pull out all the stops. Oh, and if you need inspiration, just look at Emma Stone. She works bright lipstick all year round.
9. All Sparkly Everything
Like I said, NYE is the perfect excuse to rock that sparkly dress that’s been collecting dust in the back of your closet, just waiting for the right moment to be worn. Plus, it’ll make you feel like Taylor Swift.
8. All Sparkly Everything, Part II
And if the colorful sparkles are a bit too much for you, there’s nothing wrong with head-to-toe black à la Adele.
7. Red-Carpet Worthy Gowns
Headed somewhere super fancy for New Year’s? A full-sparkle gown à la Jennifer Lawrence is the perfect head-turning number worthy of any red carpet out there!
6. Metallic Tops And Dresses
Remember what Amy Adams wore in that one nightclub scene in American Hustle? And again at the Met Gala last year? Just take a page out of her book and you’ll be on the right track.
Selena Gomez can rock a jumpsuit (or regular suit, for that matter) better than most, so this is the perfect piece if you’re looking to channel the gorgeous singer this year.
4. Velvet Dresses
There’s something about a velvet dress that just feels very Emma Roberts-eque to me, and it’s the perfect combination of festive and winter-y.
3. Statement Necklaces
Statement necklaces can be just exciting as crystal earrings, and they always have a very Shay Mitchell or Kim Kardashian feel to them.
2. Party Rompers
They’re the cool younger sibling of the most-poised jumpsuit. Bella Thorne always pulls them off really well, and if it’s colder outside, just throw on a pair of tights and you’re good to go!
1. Exciting Shoes
And, of course, what’s an A-lister on New Year’s Eve without her amazing shoes? Blake Lively had the right idea when she stepped out in these on an old episode of Gossip Girl.
