Here’s your New Year’s Eve fashion game plan: a.) Screen shot one of these photos, b.) Head to the mall and c.) Shop until you recreate the look for New Year’s Eve. Seriously, we found the perfect outfit for any plans you might have, from an all-out bash to a low-key gathering at home.
If you’re trying to nab a kiss at midnight: You’ll probably be listening to her new album, so why not dress like Beyoncé too! The singer recently shared this snap on her blog, showing off her figure in a Markus Lupfer bodycon dress that screams “Look-at-me-I-know-I’m-hot”. Yes, you’ll also need Bey’s confidence. Then be prepared to command attention from every. single. dude in the room.
It’s no surprise that her dress is sold out everywhere, but get a similar vibe with this scarlet second-skin stunner from Nasty Gal (only $68!). Pair with your sexiest black pumps, a bold red lip and maybe even try out a high topknot for the occasion. You’ll look killer and the ensemble takes very little effort.

Dinner with the boyfriend followed by drinks at a friend’s swanky apartment: If you haven’t tried out the crop top yet, there’s still time. Celebrate the biggest trend of 2013 (while ringing in 2014!) and show off a slice of midriff. Your guy will definitely appreciate it, and it’s a fun look for that fancy prix fixe dinner he’s taken you to. Plus, it’s totally party appropriate.
Take a cue from our always-flawless Celeb Style Council member Jamie Chung and team a knit pencil skirt with a matching belly-baring top. The good news: Her entire outfit is from Charlotte Ronson’s JCPenny collection! The bad news: It’s not available in stores yet. But we found a very similar combo for under-$100! (Thank you post-Christmas sales!) Try out this Aqua knit pencil skirt and matching top both majorly reduced at Bloomingdales. And add a hit of glitz via Charming Charlie’s “Skyline” statement necklace. Then prepare for those “Where did you get that?” Q’s from all your friends.

Pre-paid club party with friends: Look, you paid a lot of money to go out, so you better dress the part. We can’t guarantee you legs like Gisele Bündchen by NYE, but we can help you crib this outfit which is perfect for the fancy dance-party vibe you’re going for.
Try out this sequin mini skirt from Express with a coordinating black cropped tee (yes, another crop top because why not, ’tis the season!). Finish the look with gold ankle strap heels like this simple Michael Antonio Lovina pair. Now all you need is glass of champagne in your hand and a party blower. Boom.
Low-key gathering with friends: Maybe you’re not into strobe lights, champagne showers or fancy dinners on NYE. (We totally hear you.) Sometimes it’s fun just to kick back and have a pot luck with pals. So if you want to be a bit festive, but not all-out glam, use Miranda Kerr as your guide.
Leather pants are just as common as skinny jeans in Hollywood right now, and if you haven’t invested in a pair yet, it’s the perfect time to do so. Currently, these vegan leather bottoms by Black Denim are in our shopping carts. Pair the funky pants with a sheer-paneled illusion top like this one from Mango, and you’ve nailed the perfect laid-back look to match your laid-back evening.
