With New Year’s Eve just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to glam up your look with on-trend accessories for a stunning night on the town.

The luxe textures, rich jewel tones and shimmering details of these head-to-toe pieces blend well with each other, and bring out the best in the basics and party pieces already in your closet. We’ll toast to that.


Whether you’re dressing up a go-to ensemble or looking to add the finishing touch to something new, these costume jewels will add the shimmer you seek.

For ears, tassels and drops are all the rage. Consider the ladylike Sorrelli Tersana Crystal Drops ($118 at Anthropologie) or edgy Kendra Scott Tricia Drop Earrings ($75 at Nordstrom). For multiple piercings, pick up the Zara 4-Pack of Jewel Earrings ($23 at zara.com), a coordinated set of drops and studs.

Pair a more understated pair of earrings with a blingy necklace, such as the BaubleBar Atlas Collar ($62 at baublebar.com), J.Crew Floral Drop Pendant ($48 at Nordstrom), or super on-trend Zara Shiny Suede Choker Pack ($26 at zara.com).

Opt for an unexpected way to add some last-minute bling to your look with the Banana Republic Embroidered Headband ($38) or Loft Pave Bobby Pin Set ($19.50). Or stick J.Crew’s Crystal Pin ($58) on a jacket, sweater, bag — anywhere you need some extra color.


Block heels, velvet textures and loafer styles are hot footwear trends for winter, and when worn with dresses, skirts or wide-leg pants, they help create a very festive ensemble.

The J.Crew Glitter Scalloped Heels (on sale for $190) are holiday-chic with an unexpected scallop detail.

Zara’s Velvet Loafers ($50) and Leather High Heel Ankle Boots with Pompoms ($139, both at zara.com) both feature rich textures in a gorgeous navy blue.


To carry your night-out essentials, opt for a clutch, pouch or bag that’s practical, but also adds to the fun.

The Banana Republic Small Metallic Crocodile Pouch ($30–$38) and Rebecca Minkoff Leo Envelope Clutch ($125 at Nordstrom) are classics made festive with metallic and sequin details.

The Zara Beaded Bucket Bag ($90 at zara.com) makes a more of a statement, and a celebratory one at that, with beading and swingy fringe.


Add pop to your look with the season’s go-to beauty products.

For nails, try a modern take on a festive red with local firm Butter London’s Patent Shine 10x Nail Lacquer in Afters ($18 at Nordstrom), a deep, rich hue.

Add instant glam-factor to eye makeup by donning Sephora Collection False Eyelashes ($10 at Sephora) for the night, which are made with natural hair and come with glue adhesive.

Or keep your party look super simple with Tata Harper Skincare Volumizing Lip & Cheek Tint ($36 at Nordstrom), which you can pop in your bag for no-fuss touch-ups on the go.


Even if you’re planning to celebrate primarily indoors, it’s a good idea to be prepared for whatever the night entails.

The Zara Velvet Jacket With Roll-Up Sleeves ($129 at zara.com) adds an extra layer and loads of chic style.

Tontoretta’s Starry Night Tights ($28 at Anthropologie) ensure you’ll stay warm, without losing an opportunity to add more sparkle.

And if you’re headed out to watch the fireworks, don the Anthropologie Pommed Bridgette Beret ($58) and Loft Faux Fur Popover Scarf ($69.50) for a look that’s festive and fun.
