New year, new style goals, right? NYE outfit ideas are only bounded by your creativity and courage. If you’re feeling brave and creative, you could pull single festive pieces from inside your own closet. Or, hit the mall for a unique statement-maker.

This NYE, the only rule is that anything outside the short and sparkly box will put you stylish steps ahead of the rest.

In other words, leave that sequined mini dress in the closet this year and try something different! Let a million other girls zip into flashy bodycon–when you step out in something bolder, the entire evening will be that much more memorable.

To get your inspiration going, we’ve pulled together five favorite NYE outfit ideas that are perfect choices for ringing in 2016.

The Suit Set

You’ve seen pant suits on the red carpet, so you already know a tux can be sexy. If you’re NYE plans include something formal, choose satin details and a plunging neckline. Pair with closed-toe stiletto heals for an ultra-sophisticated look.

The Embellished Crop

It isn’t always about black–carry your winter whites into the new year with an embellished crop that complements light trousers, tights or skirts. This number isn’t a one-time-wear piece either. Post-NYE, use this bralette as a showy piece beneath a slightly sheer blouse, partnered with dark denim jeans.

The Metallic Midi

Lower the hem but keep the glitz with a midi or maxi skirt in a metallic sheen. You can go casual with a tee up top or glam it up with crop and brooch.

The Jumpsuit

Put some life back into the party–and stand out in the crowd–with a festive winter hue in a luxe fabric. This satin cranberry number is as comfy and chic as it is colorful.

The Caftan

Looking for a comfy alternative that still rings in the year with fabulous style? Float around in a cool caftan for effortless and exotic appeal.
