What To Wear on New Year's Eve: Sequins Like Gwyneth!

12/26/2006 at 05:00 PM ET

From the French Connection dress that everyone seemed to be wearing to blinged-out minis, stars like Gwyneth Paltrow have been shining in sequined dresses this fall. We think it’s the perfect look for any holiday party, but especially for New Year’s Eve when you really want to amp up the glitz and glam factor. Who doesn’t want to stand out in a crowd at the stroke of midnight? You’ve got less than a week to shop for the big night, so check out a few of our favorites:

Had too much fruitcake last weekend? Breathe easy in a swingy shape, like this bowed LaRok mini, $248, or this silver-tipped Foley dress, $374.

Worried about getting chilly? Keep covered in this sleeved option from Emmy, $478, or how about this Spiegel slip dress with matching cardigan, $118?

Want to make moves in metallics? Slip into silver with this French Connection sheath, $228, or get the gold in this Newport News halter, $69.

Just want a hint of sparkle? Try a sequined clutch from Ann Taylor Loft, $25, or these adorable Beverly Feldman flats, $85?

I hope she’ll be standing all night because there’s no way she can sit down in that without pulling a Britney.
