Wherever you ring in 2016, it’s more than likely that all of the party-goers will be dressed alike. Elegant black tops, their “it” bag, and just a hint of shimmer. Even if you’ve retired your favorite going out top permanently, New Year’s Eve necessitates purchasing one that will survive the party and take you into the new year in style. After all, much like Halloween, it’s your chance to wear something truly outrageous, all in the name of the holiday season.

No one shines bright like a diamond quite like a Kardashian, and their go-to designer is always Balmain. Ring in the new year with this sequined wrap top that’s sure to stand out in a sea of little black dresses. If red isn’t your color, the top comes in black and white (with just as much sparkle).

Distract everyone from the impending ball drop with this heavily sequined blouse that’s a throwback to dance team days. No one will be counting the individual crystals on the ball in Times Square, because they’ll be too focused on your top.

Nothing says Brooklyn like a bodysuit. If you’re venturing to another borough, stop by Reformation in the LES to visit their New Year’s Eve collection. There’s not a whole lot of glitter, but the brand offers plenty of spandex to guarantee that you channel your inner Victoria’s Secret Angel if you’re heading to an underground Bushwick party.

If sequins aren’t your style, silver grommets are the accent you need for a subtle dose of drama. This Proenza top is part of the limited-edition Made in New York collection, so you’re far less likely to overlap with other party-goers.
