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?

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!
