You can get away with wearing almost anything at a house party.

Try out a little lacy number like the one seen on the Blumarine F/W 2011 runway, or a colorful dress to stand out from the crowd. Team your dress up with some super sexy heels and a piece of statement jewelry and you’ll be guaranteed a kiss!

Clubs are all about being a bit daring. Try a sparkly number to get you noticed.

We love the sequin mini dresses spotted Balmain’s runway, and the idea of pairing it with shoulder-grazing earrings and some uber-glam platforms to your look. (Just remember those gel cushions for your poor feet, dancing queens!) You’ll be as glitzy as the disco ball!

Sure, there will be tons of people watching the fireworks with their North Face jacket on, but you don’t have to be one of them.

There are some fantastic knitted dress options to keep you cozy and looking party ready, like the one we spotted on the Iceberg F/W 2011 runway. Wear it with a pair of thick tights and boots with a wool or fur coat, and you’ll be the best dressed (and warmest) as you and your date watch the sky fill up with diamonds.
