What To Wear On New Year's Eve In NYC, No Matter Which Borough You'll Be In
There is no place like New York City on New Year's Eve. There is a sense of joy and energy unlike any other. If you plan on heading out on the town, consider wearing a statement outfit this New Year's Eve. Wondering what I mean by that? To me, a statement outfit is one that allows you to stand out from the crowd with confidence. It's the outfit that you feel your best in, but will allow also you to dance the night away without worrying about what you're wearing. It's too formal for a day-to-day outfit, but just right for any nighttime occasion.
Whether you're partying in Times Square or hanging out in a loft in Brooklyn, your statement outfit needs to be on-point. Try adding a bit of sparkle or texture to ring in 2016. You can never go wrong with a bit of shimmer. New Year's Eve is the perfect time to bust out your favorite sequined piece. It's all about the shine, so sequins are definitely a go-to for this night out.
