Your New Year’s Eve Outfit, Solved—No Sequins Required

New Year’s Eve is the holiday that single-handedly proves that less is not always more. And while piled on sequins is a definitive go-to for many, there are ways to brighten the night with a little lower-key glitz and glam for the minimalists in the crowd. We found seven extra looks that are just the right inspo for a night on the town if the regular sparkly minidress fallback just isn’t your thing.
