NYE is overrated—your outfit doesn’t have to be.
So you survived 2017. A serious congrats is in order—you deserve to let loose, snag a glass of bubbly, and pretend like this year didn’t happen. Before you begin your “new year, new me” resolutions, it only seems fitting to kiss 2017 buh-bye with a bang. Although NYE is the only night of the year where we can douse ourselves in glitter and get away with it, sometimes the go-to sequin dress just won’t cut it. Whether you’re feeling like skipping the party circuit in favor of your warm bed or lacking the enthusiasm to pick an outfit, these are the NYE icons that take the guesswork out of getting ready.
Monica, 200 Cigarettes
Whether you’re hosting your own NYE party or headed to one, channel one of the 20-something revelers in the cult classic 200 Cigarettes. Our favorite New Yorker? Monica, the uptight party host with homemade crab dip in hand, anxiously waiting for her late guests to arrive. Opt for a maxi dress—up the ante with some added sparkle.
Shiny ensembles are tantalizing, so how do you pull off sequins without looking like you dipped yourself into a disco ball? Cue Naomi Campbell, your sequins mentor. The queen of the runway knows how to do head-to-toe sparkle. The only rule for this holiday season? Go for the drama. Opt for a sparkly number here or here.
It’s hard to choose just one of this 70s beaut’s iconic looks, but the supermodel’s effortless jumpsuit decisions win us over. Go for a jumpsuit that does the talking for you—it’s possibly one the easiest ways to pull off NYE this year. Top it off with a belt and heels.
Annie Reed, Sleepless in Seattle
Why Annie Reed in Sleepless in Seattle decides to spend her NYE with balding men at a black tie event is beyond us. Her NYE sartorial decisions on the other hand land this iconic NYE look on our list. Say yes to off-the-shoulder silhouettes and delicate necklaces.
