Everyone wants to start off the New Year on the right foot, and the best way to accomplish that is by looking your best when the clock strikes twelve. Vibrant sequined dresses are not only the perfect way to stand out, but they are also the trendiest option for ringing in the New Year. Flashy dresses have been all the rage for the past few years, but if you don’t want to stand out too much, a black top or skirt paired with a sequined piece is a great way to stay on trend.

“I love how sparkly and flashy dresses and tops add flair to the sometimes drab winter season,” said Port Washington resident Sherry Ambos.

Another piece that has been all over magazines lately are two-piece dresses.  Two-piece dresses are versatile and can easily be mixed and matched.

“Two piece dresses are so easy to pull off and there are a variety of styles that would look great on everyone,” said Schreiber alumna Lauren Ambos.

It would seem like almost everyone, from students to celebrities, is sporting this trend.

Their inexpensive and wide range of styles will suit anyone’s tastes. Another great online store is Although Lulus’ products a bit pricier, the company is still wildly popular and provides yet another option for special occasions. Like Tobi, they have an expansive section dedicated to chic holiday looks and glamorous New Years Eve dresses.

“Lulus has such a fabulous range of options and the New Years dresses this year are incredible. I can’t wait to show mine off,” said sophomore Julia Semilof.
