Last Minute New Year's Eve Outfits

If you're still rushing to shop for a New Year's Eve outfit, why not take a look in your own closet?  I know I get into the habit of shopping for a new outfit for every celebration, but that leads to impulse shopping - and we know that is definitely not good.  Here are some outfits using pieces you probably already have: skinny jeans, the little black dress, black leggings, and a black miniskirt.  I know, that's a lot of black, but I figured these are pieces you probably have laying around somewhere.

NYE - Party Top and Jeans
Sequin Tank Top - Buckle, $25
Black Skinny Jeans - Hot Topic, $15
Jessica Simpson Waleo - Plum Suede Pumps, $90
Avance Silpion Wristlet, $47
Amethyst Stud Earrings, $25
COVERGIRL LashBlast Volume Mascara Collection - Target, $6.94
Feather Soft Eyelashes, $2.80

Take your pair of black jeans and pair it with a trendy top - yes, it's that simple!  Sequins are still big right now, and NYE is the perfect night to wear them.  Purple is one of my favorite colors, so I added some purple pumps and stud earrings to complement the color of the top.  For your make-up, keep it simple, and glam up your eyes with fake eyelashes and mascara.  All you need is eyeliner - no eyeshadow.

Bandage Strap Dress - Wet Seal, $24.50
Sam Edelman "Novato" Glitter Pump, $99
La Regale Metallic Clutch, $30
Pave Cage Ring, $7.80
Polished Chandelier Earrings, $7.80

Spice up your LBD with metallic accessories and a dramatic smokey eye.  Glittery pumps add a pop to the metallics, and not to mention, these shoes are HOT!  This look is easy enough to do without spending a fortune.

I chose to use liquid leggings with this outfit because they have a dressier look, compared to regular leggings.  Add a tunic top that has details or embellishments; this one has a detailed necklace.  The silver accessories play off the tunic's details, and the black booties don't overwhelm the outfit.

NYE - Black Skirt
Party Top, $19
Bandage Mini Skirt - Arden B., $39
Steve Madden 'Partyy' Pump, $90
BCBGeneration Molly Sequined Fold-Over Clutch, $48
Laina's Textured Gold Stacking Bangles, $22
Kitson Spike Stud Earrings, $14

Combine a party top and a black bandage skirt and you've got a chic outfit in no time.  Ditch the flashy shoes for these simple black pumps.  Add a sequined pattern clutch and gold jewelry and you're officially ready to party!
