Getting all dressed up for New Year's Eve can be a blast! Even more so when you not only look great, but also feel comfortable.

NYE for us means lots of sparkle.

While most gals would opt for a dress, we're taking a different route. GANNI's 'Temple' top is exactly what we want for a party - scores of sparkling sequins and beads that instantly lift the mood as they catch the light. It is cut from cream chiffon in a relaxed T-shirt shape and fully lined for opacity. The matching pants are also made from cream chiffon and they are embellished with rows of gold and silver sequins and beads that shimmer even in low light. It didn't take us long to find the perfect sparkly shoe to complement our dazzling ensemble! Giuseppe Zanotti creates such glamorous styles that we never have to look far. Made from high shine silver leather, these 'Mistico' slingback sandals have crystal-embellished knots that rest on top of two dainty caged straps. Our bag for this look packs a functional, yet unusual surprise. Bet you'd never guess that this whimsical tote doubles as both a celebratory statement (cheers!) and an actual place to stow a bottle of bubbles. Leave it to Kate Spade to make a cute accessory handy for a night on the town. If there is any time to go ham on flashy jewelry, it's New Year's. Reach for the stars wearing these Marc Jacobs Charms Celestial Twinkle Star Earrings. The multiple star drop design is decorated by a variety of sparkling crystals which include topaz, amethyst, citrine, and pink topaz. There's also no better time to have a little fun with your makeup. Stila's Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow is a long-wearing, sparkle eyeshadow with the perfect blend of pearl and glitter to leave your eyes with incredible luster and shimmer. These shadows are one of our favorites and are sure to have your eyes dazzling all night long. Whether you're going to a big fancy shindig or just partying the night away with friends and family, in this outfit you'll be 'Puttin' On the Glitz' all the way into 2018.
