* Over-the-knee boots are all the rage - you'll definitely look on-trend this NYE.
* Or, if your NYE happens to be more low-key, pair them with a slim jeans and a belted tunic sweater. Leggings and a boyfriend cardigan will work, too.

* Even if you cannot afford an entire new outfit for NYE, jazz up an old favorite with a fabulous piece of statement jewelry!
* Get sassy and fun like the photo you see here of our beloved SJP!
* Or, exaggerated hair accessories and chunky bracelets will add flair, too - think a large bracelet, bangles, matching earrings and large ring.

* Bottom line - A sequin dress is all you need this holiday. Simple, sparkly and festive = fun!
* And, if a full sequins dress is too intimidating, try a shirt, scarf or a purse for some glam.
