With the holiday rush just winding down, it has been difficult for most of us to find the time to even think of what to wear on New Years Eve. If you are anything like me, you are wracking your brain trying to find the perfect outfit to wear to ring in the new year. After spending hours tearing my closet apart and staring at a pile of what looked like a dance recital threw up (I kid you not, there were tulle skirts, leather pants, sequin pants, sequin skirts, a sequin tutu, sequin dresses, neon dresses, and whole lot of leopard…I swear, I have made it all work at least once!) I finally decided on a pair of black sequin pants with a white silk button down and some funky Sam Edelman booties that I just got for Christmas (Thank you Santa!). Since the sequin pants and silk top are veterans in my wardrobe, I found some fabulous alternatives that are almost identical to mine. I have also put together a different version of the look at a much more affordable price point!

I know most people are weary of sequins in general, let alone wearing a pair of sequin pants. The trick to rocking these bad boys is to make sure that your outfit is balanced. Keep jewelry to a minimum, limit the amount of colors you are throwing into the mix, and make sure the sequin garment fits you properly. Wearing anything covered in sequins (pants in particular) can be extremely unflattering if they do not fit right. Sequin pants are a great alternative to dresses and skirts and still make for a sexy and stylish outfit!
