Grab a confetti popper and put your party hat on, because it’s time to celebrate New Year's Eve. While you and your friends are getting ready for the festivities, the one thing you haven't waited until the last-minute to pick out is your outfit. You've browsed through many holiday sales racks and found the perfect glittery dress or velvet jumpsuit. As excited as you are for the ball to drop in Times Square and to kiss your crush at midnight, you can't wait to post a few pictures with clever New Year's outfit captions when you're all glammed up and ready to go.

Posting a picture is one of the top priorities on your agenda, right next to toasting to the new year and dancing the night away. You may snap a selfie with your friends, all decked out in glittery attire, or maybe you'll post a dancing candid that perfectly showcases your ensemble. Either way, a picture is necessary to ensure your #lewk lasts. After sifting through your phone to find the best snap to share, you'll want to have a caption ready to use.

With the countdown near, you shouldn't have to take any time away from celebrating. To help you out, I’m taking on the role of NYE fairy godmother. Though, instead of a pumpkin carriage or glass slippers, I've collected these captions just for you. Think of them like the right pair of shoes and clutch that put the proper finishing touch on whatever dress you choose to wear. Now, party on like a true sparkle queen.
