New Year's is the time to shine!

While I'm not a fan of New Years (instead, I prefer to party like it's 1999 on my birthday), all the sparkly, sequin-y stuff that comes out at this time of year is fun to fantasize wear. If you are looking for an outfit for a fancy or casual night out, include sequins for that festive oomph. Here are a few options to get you going. Click on the images to be taken to the retailers site, but remember to purchase through the Ebates link located on the side for an extra 2% to 10% cash back!

The gray dress from Sugarhill Boutique is on sale at Asos for $45 (plus 3.5% cash back if you purchased through Ebates.  The shoulders of this dress have sequin detail, which a long-sleeve t-shirt could help highlight.  Pair the gray with a rich gold or mustard-colored layer for added shine.

Here's another one if you're heading for a night out on New Year's. You can substitute the black and grey t-shirts listed here for ones in your wardrobe, and add boots or a pair of wedge heels to finish the look . Click on the images below to be taken to the retailers site, but buy through Ebates for an additional 3% to 8% off at Kohl's, Piperlime (for the dresses), and Mango (for the ts and colored leggings).

And finally, this is a look that goes from casual to flashy in no time - all you need to do is change up jeans for leggings. This is where those staple boots come in handy. If you shop through Ebates, you can get another 3% back on your spending at either Dillards (dress) or Bluefly (7 for All Mankind jeans).
