One of fall’s top trends has carried over into the winter: velvet! If you opt for that texture, slip on a — you guessed it! — slip dress for your evening. But of course, you can’t mention New Year’s Eve without mentioning sequins. If you don’t want to wear a completely blinged-out cocktail dress, try a more conservative option: a pencil skirt paired with a chunky sweater. Or just go shimmery with your accessories: a pair of metallic pumps or a glittery cross-body bag should do the trick.
