We all know New Year’s Eve can either be a little dreadful [the pressure of finding the perfect outfit, having the perfect night, and starting the perfect year] or insanely exciting [drinking bubbly with family and friends, dancing the night away, and fresh starts].

Over the years we have learned to embrace the spontaneity of the evening by finding our next new restaurant experience with our significant others on a simple date night. This year faux leather leggings for the save—dressy, warm, comfortable, and affordable—what more could you ask for in a New Year’s Eve outfit. Check out the above photos to see how we each styled this wardrobe staple         differently. These have quickly become our go to item for those cold nights on the East Coast.
