Holiday cocktail party season may be in full swing, but now is the time to snap up a great New Year's Eve outfit before it's too late. Key to standing out as you celebrate the new decade is picking out something luxurious and fun: think sumptuous velvet, deep gemstone hues, and rich sequins, and even floaty, flouncy dresses are a good idea. Be sure not to limit your New Year's Eve oufit selection to only gowns and dresses—some of the chicest pieces to wear as you ring in 2020 are blazers, tuxedos, and barely there camisoles. Leave the over-the-top accessories at home for something more elevated, like a satin bag from beloved label The Row or diamond clusters from Tiffany & Co. Not one to load on the sparkle? The Tiffany & Co. HardWear chunky chainlink bracelet will be the way to go, adding the right amount of edge to whatever look you choose. Check out these 10 decadent New Years Eve outfit ideas and get ready to pop that champagne.

Miu Miu

Miu Miu is a go-to for a playful take on the cocktail dress. For a complete New Year's Eve outfit idea, pair with kitten heels and a deep red lip.
