We’re only a month away from 2014, and I don’t know about you, but I always like to start off my New Year dressed extravagantly. It’s a new year, and I want to start off looking great in hopes that I’ll keep myself looking fabulous the remainder of the year (it doesn’t always happen, but shh, we’ll keep that between us). It’s probably the hardest outfit to pick out within the entire year (at least for me), but then again, I tend to procrastinate last minute. Last year, I bought my dress the night before New Year’s Eve, but I’m sure I’m not the only procrastinator here. That’s why I’ve created this list of perfect New Year's Eve outfits for every type of girl. Let’s hope this year we won’t have to panic for an outfit leading us into the New Year.
My goal for this outfit was to be edgy with a dash of glamour. The sequin peplum pants add some necessary New Year’s glamour, but the moto jacket and booties tone it down with a rocker feel.

Dream Sequence Peplum Pant from Nasty Gal; 6. Jacquard Crop Top by River Island; 7. Chunky Gold and Crystal Jaguar Bracelet by Heirloom Finds; 8. Gold and Crystal Jaguar Earrings by Heirloom Finds
This outfit is for the typical princess. The tutu dress really gives it the “princess” feel, and the roses and pearls in the jewelry add delicacy. I chose a pair of sequined flats because it completes the daintiness that a princess-y look should have, while also having that New Year’s sparkle.

The Hollywood Starlet
There's nothing like old Hollywood glamour and you can achieve this beautiful look if you find the right pieces. The dress I’ve chosen couldn’t be any more perfect for a Hollywood starlet. Of course the red lipstick was a must, and the feathered hat adds a little 20’s glamour.

This look is a lot less extravagant than the rest, but it’s New Year’s worthy while also being cozy. It’s definitely a hipster-esq. look with the high-waisted shorts, beanie and wayfarer sunglasses. Therefore, if you’re not in the mood to get extremely glammed up, this outfit is the perfect choice for you.
