Go Black for the Ball Drop.

@ninagarcia Wearing black on New Year’s Eve is a bit like wearing a tasteful sheath to Mardi Gras. Why? You have free rein to go full glam. Work it.

Nina Garcia, Marie Claire fashion director and Project Runway judge, tweeted this earlier on in the evening...and I thought her statement was so on point.

I, of course, am the ultimate creature of pure black and gold habit when it comes to the ever so festive event, NYE. Not only does black hide all of the eggnog and truffles stuffed in our faces just days prior, but it is a fun base for any metallic craziness you want to emerge yourself into. I prefer gold because it compliments my champagne flute perfectly (and it is my most favorite precious metal), but shiny silvers and bold glitter in any and every color of the rainbow work fabulously with black as well!

Choosing what accessories you want to make your outfit pop like a bottle of bubbly is a fashionably artistic decision I will leave to you (think clutches, shoes, bracelet stacks, cocktail rings...even bedazzled stockings!) However, I found some great statement necklace ideas to start with, and they're all very different.

Here are my favorite picks right now to pile on top of your black...

Oscar de la Renta Three-Strand Cone Bib Necklace

Wendy Brigode Black Baroque Pearl Necklace
