Overwhelmed, underwhelmed, however you feel about it, New Year’s Eve is tomorrow. (And I don’t think you can just be whelmed about it, unless of course you are in Europe.) So wherever you’re going and whatever you’re doing, you’re going to need a few things to get through the night and ring in 2016:

ONE: Something to wear.

Chill night in with friends? Go jeans and a cool top. Hitting the bars or a house party? Do something unexpected, like leather pants and faux fur or a jumpsuit. Either option will help you look extra amaze in a sea of glittery, body con dresses. Personally, I will be rocking a velvet crop top/pencil skirt matching set. And if I can get over my figure skating flashbacks to embrace the velvet trend, so can you. (Buying it on sale helps, too, of course.)

TWO: Something to drink.

Champagne is the clear choice here, but you may want to switch it up throughout the evening. If you’re out and about, decide on a go-to – preferably something simple because any bartender you encounter will probably be a bit busy.

THREE: Something to make your face and hair pretty.

New Year’s Eve is a time to set the tone for who we want to be in the coming year. Do you want to be a red lip girl? Someone who wears fake lashes? Now is a great time to test it out.

FOUR: Something to carry your phone, keys, wallet + the aforementioned stuff to make you pretty.

Grab extra cash, too, because the Uber/cab situation is quite likely to turn into a nightmare and who wants to ring in 2016 that way? Depending on how big your bag is and what your outfit situation is, you may also want to stash some bobby pins, band aids, advil (definitely advil, even if it’s two pills floating around your clutch), gum, concealer and lipstick in there. Maybe also sunglasses, just in case. You know. If they fit.

FIVE: A ride or die bestie to ring in the coming year.

Because of course.

So tell me – any big NYE plans? Will you need a survival kit for the night?
