Although Christmas may be over, we are still knee-deep in the holiday season. After all, New Year's Eve is just around the corner. While you were busy stressing over which gifts to buy your mother, what to wear to your office party and how many glasses of wine was appropriate to consume in front of your in-laws, you may have pushed New Year's Eve to the back of your mind. But believe it or not, it's here and it's time to start planning your ensemble.

So grab that sequined dress and your red lipstick and get excited: It's perfect for celebrating the new year in style.
