Celebrity-inspired New Year's Eve looks
Celine Dion's silved sequin pants and jacket will keep you warm on a freezing December night while still feeling festive!
Stand out from a crowd of black sequins in blue! Nicole Kidman's dress is age-appropriate while still fun and party-ready.
Sequin pants work for any NYE occasion! Julianne Moore paired hers with a simple black blouse, natural makeup and black heels.
If you're looking to master sexier, skin-baring sequins, Kourtney Kardashian will show you how it's done. (And you can't go wrong in black.)

Who says you have to wear heels? Whether you're heading to a party or just hanging at home, you can still rock sequins -- without the discomfort of a stiletto. Just take a look at Tracee Ellis Ross!

It's a long night, so comfort is key! Naomie Harris' sequin pantsuit is practical yet whimsical.
Amal Clooney never gets it wrong! This gold number is conservative but still perfect for the dance floor. Strappy gold heels make for a timeless ensemble.
Sequins really do work for any age! At 62, Kris Jenner still knows how to rock some sparkle. And gold and black are very NYE-appropriate.
We love the midi length on Kelly Ripa's pink sequin number -- it could easily pass for cocktail or formal attire.
For a more demure, sophisticated look, consider Lily Aldridge's black belted suit-turned-dress. It's great if you're going to be around professional colleagues this New Year's.
Sleek and sultry! Karlie Kloss paired this tulip-skirted dress with classic black pointed pumps.
Dark green sequins are always a style statement. Alexa Chung did it right in this calf-length number with a frilled sleeve and hemline.
A pop of blue adds some extra flair to Kate Bosworth's floor-length sequined gown. (And once again, the long sleeves are great for when a frigid breeze slips through the front door.)
If you've always wanted to channel Cher, this NYE could be your moment to shine. Demi Lovato took cues from the '70s icon in this glittering gold pantsuit (or... something).
Don't forget the coat! You still want to look fabulous from the car to the door, and you can't go wrong with a smart black coat like Jennifer Lopez's.
If you're not so into sequins but still want to go for a bold party look, try a lace tulle ensemble like Sarah Jessica Parker's. (But unless you're hitting the club, we wouldn't recommend the see-through top and bra.)

If sequins aren't your thing, you don't have to rock head-to-toe sparkle -- take a cue from stars like Celine Dion and Julianne Moore, who toned down their sequins with plain tops -- and if they are, you can decide how sexy or conservative you want to go.

Take a look at all our NYE style picks in the gallery above.
