It's New Year's Eve — do you have anything to wear? The quickest way to look festive on NYE is to add a pop of red to your outfit, just like Julianne Hough did with her all-black ensemble. She started off with a sheer black blouse, which she tucked into a pair of black high-waisted shorts, then cinched her waist with a black leather cummerbund-style belt. The actress finished with studded ankle-strap pumps, sparkly diamond studs, and the kicker, a red envelope clutch, which totally transformed her look from monotone to marvelous. All thanks to a little pop of bright red! Mimic Julianne's ensemble when you ring in 2013 by shopping similar pieces in the widget below.

Every year, Nivea teams up with a famous couple to host its New Year's Eve celebration in Times Square. This time, Mario Lopez and fiancée Courtney Mazza will head to New York to celebrate as the ball drops. "We met [in New York], we got engaged last New Year's Eve, and we'll be newlyweds this year," Mario explained at last night's launch event. But they're not the only pair to party on Dec. 31; as part of its Kiss of the Year contest, the brand is looking for another couple to ring in New Year's Eve in New York. "There is nothing like it in the world, and we want to encourage people to celebrate love," Mario said.
New Year's Eve is about good company, a little bubbly, and the highly anticipated countdown. While the midnight kiss is a NYE tradition, it shouldn't make or break the evening. Some might hunt down a man for a midnight kiss. While for others, the kiss is just a spontaneous happenstance. If you snagged a kiss last night, how did it happen? Did your guy friend finally confess his feelings or did a love interest make a move? Did you have a steamy, passionate kiss with a stranger? Did the lover in your life sweep you off your feet when the ball dropped?
