19 New Year's Eve Dresses and Smokin' Legs To Wow You

Posted on Dec 26, 2008 at 6:04AM

Whether you are looking for the perfect red, the hide-all-my-flaws number, or the flowy gown, we've got something for you to choose from that will 'wow' your guests or 'dazzle' your hosts this New Year's Eve. 

New Year's Eve is a big event and you should convey that via your attire. Go big or go home.

This is the time to try a new color, fit, or print.

But, remember if you aren't comfortable strutting around the house. you won't let yourself relax in a public setting.

Want to spruce it up without going all the way? Pair solid colored dresses with funky print and colored accessories. Limit yourself to three pieces of jewelry. Too much of a good thing is, well, not a good thing.

Once you have your dress lined up, learn how to make your legs look smokin' hot with contouring makeup tips and tricks from it cosmetics.

And, remember ladies, drinking responsibly never goes out of style.

Cheers, Jamie

Sorry that you were upset by the picks. Maybe too much eggnog. Sometimes we have an off day, too. We really do appreciate when y'all let us know your likes and dislikes, because this blog is all about the readers.
