What To Wear For New Year's Eve: Washington, D.C.

Anyone who lives in D.C. knows we do things a little differently here. You won't see girls traipsing out in too-short mini skirts, unfortunate spandex, or inappropriate bling – no no. In the district, we ladies require a touch of polish. After all, you can't go from a pedicure to a political discussion without a fashionable – yet classic – wardrobe to get you there. News Year's is no exception: you're more likely to stumble into a debate over Hillary vs. Obama than an over-the-top fashion party.

That's why this strapless floral Milly dress from Neiman Marcus ($410) with a ruched bust is ideal. Black and white is a classic combination, while the mini cut and floral pattern gives it just the right dose of sex-appeal for the black-tie cocktail party where you'll likely ring in the New Year.

After you've spent $400+ on the perfect New Year's dress, you might think you don't have the budget to spring for the perfect pair of shoes to go with it. Guess again: these black patent-leather peep-toe Hollywould pumps from Target ($20.99)—complete with an adorable bow!—are the perfect compliment to your classy cocktail dress.

And don't forget, D.C. New Years-goers, a lady never forgets to wear tights. (Spanx Tight End Shaping Tights ($24) are always a good option.) And for make-up, M.A.C. Tinted Lipglass in Russian Red ($14) and Nail Lacquer in Shirelle ($10) strike the perfect, dramatic tone.

After all, you may be talking senators, but you shouldn't have to look like one.
