There’s no singular right way to assemble a New Year’s Eve outfit. You could opt for head-to-toe sequins, or layer different metallics to create a seriously shiny look. You could combine the most saturated shades in your wardrobe, crafting a punchy palette sure to turn heads. Or, you could opt for the endlessly classic all-black-everything—keeping things equally pared-down with your silhouette, or making use of the strangest structural pieces you can find. There is no correct or incorrect way to go about this, because the goddess “extra” has many faces. But no matter which approach you choose to pursue, you’ll be in need of truly statement-making pieces—and ideally, truly statement-making pieces that don’t break the bank.
Odds are, you already have a few go-to statement pieces in your wardrobe. The vibrant bag you carry when you need a pop of color. The textured booties that elevate any look you throw together. The statement earrings that add a certain “je ne sais quoi” to any almost-there ensemble. These tried-and-true items are favorites for a reason: They get the job done. But on New Year’s Eve, you don’t want to turn to statement pieces that merely get the job done. You want to turn to statement pieces that redefine what “getting the job done” looks like. You want the boldest, most over-the-top clothing and accessories you can find. (And at the very least, you could always stand to benefit from another excuse to go shopping, right?)
The good news? During this time of year, statement pieces absolutely abound—and they don’t cost a fortune, either. Whether you intend to re-up your entire statement wardrobe or whether you’re simply looking to add one or two new bold items to the mix, you’re in luck. You’re sure to find a veritable plethora of under-$50 statement pieces worth buying for New Year’s Eve—and wearing well after.
