New Year’s Eve is tomorrow and if you’re still scrambling to find the perfect party attire, we challenge you to ditch the ubiquitous sequin frock or LBD and toast 2011 with an unexpected look. Break the boring cycle of standard soiree getups and make this New Year’s Eve a fashionable night to remember.

Borrow from the boys—Suit up in menswear inspired pieces like a tailored tuxedo jacket, crisp white shirt and even a sleek tie if you dare!

Take flight—Get fun and flirty by adding some texture to your ensemble with feather embellishments.

Make a short cut—Trade in your glitzy gown for a standout pair of shorts. Sequins, lace or velvet will vamp up your bottoms and give them serious after dark appeal.

Hit the floor—While most partygoers will opt for a mini, give your hemline an of-the-moment update and slip into a calf-skimming skirt or dress. This 50’s inspired silhouette will give your look a modern ladylike touch.

Play peek-a-boo—Give your gown a sultry spin with see-through cutout detailing. These bold sheer panels will add a daring edge that’s sure to spice you your night.
