With every New Year’s Eve party, there comes a wave of glittering ensembles, as if your city has been sprinkled with crystals—a theme nearly any fashion girl can get behind. However, if you’re feeling a little burnt out on the sparkles but still want to be festive, try a metallic outfit instead for New Year’s.

Plus, they’re surprisingly versatile. Whether it’s the subtle sheen of a skirt that catches your eye or a pair of full-on reflective pants, this trend is one that will make a statement in all the right ways. Soon enough, you just might find your metallic clothes replacing those sparkly details once and for all.
