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
