New Year's Eve is always shiny and sparkly -- blame the free-flowing Champagne, Times Square Ball or the fact that it's the biggest nightlife event of the year and you need to look the part. This year's no exception, and if you're looking to add an eye-catching accessory to your outfit this December 31, we've got you covered from head to toe with blinged out items that will make you look like a million bucks -- without having to spend it.


This piece by Tasha features chunky gems cascading down one side of the thin headband for a dressed-up yet still subtle look that will look good in hair that's up, down, curly, straight, black, blond, blue, what have you. Nordstrom. $38.


These draped rhinestone drop earrings look like a disco ball that's been run over by a car and then attacked by a diamond-shaped cookie cutter -- in a good way. They'll add some edge to even the girliest empire waist dress. Urban Outfitters. $29.


Let this rhinestone bib necklace do all the work this New Year's Eve. No matter what you wear, all eyes will be drawn to this beaded beauty. The alternating rows of rhinestones and beaded accents is our one splurge because it's just so stunning. It's another great piece if you're looking to add some edge to your attire. Guess by Marciano. $128.


We love the chic, menswear look of this shiny, glittered leather wrap-around bracelet. On first look, you'd think it was a belt. Ann Taylor. $38


Fingers always call out for big, fabulous pieces, and this disco mod ring by Tarina Tarantino does the trick, thanks to its glistening paye crystals. With an adjustable band, you can dress up any finger you'd like, too. Zappos. $62.99 (on sale).

Nail polish

Further glam up your nails with this glittery gem crush nail color. There are a number of shades to choose from, though we like this Champagne-esque choice. Sally Hansen. $6.99.

Glitter clutches are a dime a dozen this time of year, but we like the elegant simplicity of this pewter satin bag by Lulu Townsend. And it's large enough to hold your essentials, too. DSW. $26.95 (on sale).


Leave it up to legwear experts HUE to create a nighttime tight that's glitzy and geometric. Plus, it comes with a control top, which is extra nice after the post-holiday binge. HUE. $25.50.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
