This New Year's Eve, the secret lies in mixology—not just in drinks, but in style. When modern luxe meets sixties flair, the final product is undoubtly dazzling. It's time you dust off the sequined frock that's been hibernating in the dark depths of your closet, or better yet, break in your new pair of snakeskin ankle boots. An intricate clutch adds a touch of contemporary opulence, while a bevy of golden jewels amps accessorizing to the next level. On the beauty front, opt for glittery nails to match your dress (and your bubbly) and soften your striking look with a nude lip. Your ultimate post-party weapon? A pair of round-framed sunglasses, perfect for concealing hangovers and smudged mascara.

Caught in a wardrobe dilemma, NYE edition? Monochrome is your instant cure (stick to the main three ingredient hues: black, white, and gray). Club-hopping in Sin City is certainly no tame territory, so it's only natural to keep your uniform laidback yet sophisticated. Elevate the daytime striped crop tee to evening standards with a flirty asymmetrical skirt, then top with a statement necklace. For girl gone glamour, a faux-fur vest perfectly nails the trick. Skip the stiletto and settle for a practical alternative: ankle-strap heels (dance floors do not forgive the morning after). Drama is the essence of your vanity, so feel welcome to indulge in falsies and bold smokey eyes.

Have no fear—ringing in the new year with Netflix and takeout can be just as sartorial-friendly. A graphic tee and printed leggings make the quintessential night-in combo, while kitty-kissed flats make supermarket runs a dash more charming (hunting down the aisles for Ben & Jerry's has never been better). To dress your home in the appropiate ambience, aromatic candles are the key essential. Bonus points: your movie theater (read: bedroom) also doubles as a spa; simply layer on a hydrating face mask to treat your complexion. When night falls, a dainty eye mask ensures that you enter cloud nine and 2015 in true bliss.
Which NYE outfit will you be rocking this year?
