New Years Style: For the Night Out

For those of you celebrating the new year out at the bars or a club with friends, you want a party dress that truly says “it’s time to party”. In my last roundup of cocktail dresses, I opted for festive yet classy and polished pieces. If you’re out and about with friends, you can forgo the classy and polished…just a bit ;). Try something form fitting, show a little skin (not too much!), or be adventurous with a full-on sequin jumpsuit. Why not? It’s New Years Eve and you can totally get away with it.

To avoid looking, for lack of a better word, slutty, I like to follow the rule of three: show off 1-2 of your 3 assets. Between your boobs, your legs, and that booty of yours, choose 1-2 of them to highlight. Once you show off all three, you’re veering towards slut town and we don’t want that. Here are my favorite New Years Eve dresses for a night out, all sexy and festive, yet still following my rule of three.
