Get Dressed Up
The easiest way to feel chic on New Year's Eve is to get really glammed up, even if you're just going to the local pub. Wear that beautiful dress you never have an excuse to wear. Slip on those shoes you got for Christmas. Ask your friends to do the same (but don't berate them if they decide not to). The important thing is that you feel glamorous, like this isn't just an old night out.
