With so many amazing options out there now, the struggle to pick out the best accessories to complete your New Year's Eve outfit is real. It can be overwhelming to cull through all the varieties of just one piece you're looking for. A search for velvet mini bag alone yields a crazy amount of results at different price points. No reason to fret, though—our editors did all the groundwork this season so put your mind at ease. We found the coolest picks from bags to necklaces, earrings, and even hair accessories for every budget so you don't have to.
When it comes to bags, it's all about an interesting fabric or finish. Think velvets, metallics and furry options as well. In the earrings department, the more whimsical the better with everything from crystal fringe to mini disco balls for your ears. For holiday necklaces, try a statement piece that you don't usually go for—layered chain-like pieces are your best bet. Now for the unique accessory we love this season: the embellished hair pin or clip. These designs can be the cherry on top for any look.
Scroll on to shop our editor-approved edit of the best New Year's Eve accessories of the season. The compliments will be endless come party time.
In my opinion, straight-leg jeans are the most versatile style in the entire denimsphere. Now, before you skinny-jean devotees and wide-leg jean lovers chime in, what other denim styles can you confidently say look great with everything from Manolos to ballet flats? We make a good case, don't we? (So modest.) First, straight-leg jeans are characterized by a relaxed look from the thighs down to the ankles. The classic cut tends to look good on everyone, and they have an inherently polished feel thanks to the stiffer denim.
Perhaps the greatest attribute to straight-leg jeans is that they can be styled in so many cool ways. Pairing them with cowboy boots and a blazer (just like fashion editor Alexandra Carl) is a shortcut to looking cool while white straight-leg jeans with matching trainers and a slogan tee will win you instant style points. This cut can also act as the perfect middle ground between your "fancy" top and your "show-off" shoes. Keep scrolling for our five best ways to wear straight-leg jeans, and then shop the pieces required for each ensemble.

After summer days spent san socks, thanks to the ease of wear of flats, sandals, and heels, it can seem like a slight annoyance to now have to dig through your sock drawer to find a matching pair (the struggle is real). It's no longer possible to leave the house with bare feet, but as it turns out, fashion-forward socks can actually make for a great wardrobe addition—especially when worn with a pair of boots.
As proof of this, we've searched through Instagram to find some examples of how fashion girls are wearing socks with boots this winter, from the always-classic no-show picks (perfect when wearing sock booties that leave very little room for anything else) to high-knee athletic ones you wore to during your high school volleyball match (yes, we're serious).
One look at the below outfits and you might just be convinced to leave your socks peeking out over your boots the next time you step outside of your house. Read on to see the best socks with boots outfits, and then shop our favorite trend-forward socks.
'Tis the season of weddings! Actually, that's every season, from the perfect summery ceremony to a winter wonderland, which means it's never too soon to plan your wedding reception/ceremony look. Early planning means less stress once the date rolls around and more time to focus your attention on finding the couple the perfect gift. But, figuring out what to wear to a wedding reception can leave you standing in front of your closet for hours on end—and that's where we come in.
Finding the perfect reception look depends, of course, on the location and time of year of the event. Is it outdoors? Is it indoors? And will it take place in the summer, spring, fall, or winter? Once you narrow that down, you'll feel less overwhelmed with your options. And while each season/occasion calls for slightly different pieces, there are a handful of things to always keep in mind: Don't wear a white dress, stick with sleek and comfortable shoes, and opt for a compact clutch. Ahead, shop our roundup of wedding-reception essentials for women.
Let's get one thing clear: We're not in the business of shaming anyone for their outfit choices (you do you). But we've picked up on a few celeb outfits lately that style skinny jeans in some pretty unconventional ways, and this Emily Ratajkowski look serves as yet another "mistake" It girls are admittedly pulling off. I'm calling her skinny-jean styling idea a "mistake" not because I wouldn't wear her outfit myself (I would), but because I recently gleaned a piece of noteworthy advice from my podiatrist about her choice in footwear—and the advice definitely skewed negative.
As I recently shared, podiatrist and Gotham Footcare founder Miguel Cunha weighed in on the sneaker trends he avoids like the plague, and—surprise—Ratajkowski's hiking boot–sneaker hybrids were a definite no from him. Why, exactly? "They are too bulky and heavy for everyday use and may cause muscle fatigue," he noted, "which can lead to posture changes as well as other aches and pains." Sorry, EmRata. Your shoe choice definitely hits on a major sneaker trend, but it turns out the sneaker boots are hardly a healthy choice.
