Styling Idea: Go Sheer Underneath

Emerging designer and red carpet favorite Anthony Vaccarello knows the simple trick for making basic pieces look ultra-glam: transparency. Follow his lead by layering a racy, lacy tank under a chic tuxedo blazer, pants and heels for a head-turning outfit. Photo: Getty Images

Styling Idea: Elevate With Accessories

A printed mini does the heavy lifting in the outfit department but you can take the look to the next level on New Year's Eve by pairing it with a waist-cinching belt, strappy sandals and a festive glitter mani.

Styling Idea: Make It All About The Coat

Add oomph (not to mention warmth) to sparkly slip dresses and other going-out standbys by finishing the look with a maximalist coat a la Burberry's spring 2014 show. Cinch it with a belt for a movie star silhouette or wear it boyfriend-style for a sexy, undone look. Photo: Getty Images

Styling Idea: Try Head To Toe White

An easy styling tip for nights when nothing looks quite right: stick to one solid shade. For New Year's Eve, try unexpected winter white finished with a bold lip color and glossy, luminous skin. It's a stunning, throughly modern look that was all over the 2014 runways including J.Mendel's spring show. Photo: Getty Images
