New_Years_Eve_Accessories Ladies, I have a confession to make: I absolutely despise the 100 percent sequin dress. Without fail every single December 31, I see it in about every shape and size and I'm over it. I understand, I do, if there's one night of the year to totally deck yourself out like a disco ball, New Year's Eve is it. With that said, though, there are gazillions of more flattering ensembles that can be just as festive without going over-the-top.

So what's a girl that loves some bling to do? Accessorize, of course. We've done the research and found a whole slew of fabulous accessories to play up your New Year's look. From earrings and bracelets to shoes and necklaces, check out our favorite New Year's accessories, here:

What will you be doing this New Year's? Do you dress it up, or dress it down?

  • The Perfect Heel

    There's no better way to jazz up an outfit than with the perfect set of shoes. For the lady who is going out on the town, a great heel is everything. For New Year's Eve especially, heels are your way to jazz up even the simplest black dress.

    Our top picks: These metallic Magnia pumps from Call It Spring (left, $50, callitspring.com) are absolutely stunning. With a slight platform at the front, don't let this high heel deceive you: the shoes are totally comfortable. Want to spend the night dancing? Do it rockin' some bling.

    These Sam & Libby Dahlia spiked heels from Target (right, $39.99, target.com) are a flirty way to bring in some rock to your NYE look. Surprisingly enough, the pointed toe has extra room -- making these look edgy but feel like a dream. The best part? Closed-toe means you can still wear tights!

  • A Flat Affair
