As seen on Katie Holmes I used to reserve metallic garments solely for NYE until I realized that, when assembled correctly, they can be worn anytime of year. (During this same moment of clarity, I also realized that NYE doesn't necessitate that I should try to look like a Christmas tree...) Just remember, all that glitters ain't gold. Mrs Cruise got it right with the color scheme, I think cream/off-white looks best with a metallic bronze, or midnight blue instead of black.
According to chinese calendar next year will be the year of black sea dragon and astrologers advise to dress in black & gold, sea shades and red in new year's eve. It is advised to use orange and yellow to decorate house, as well as sea shells and candles.
Dress up, go out, and get yo bling on! The fun of knowing that you just radiate glitter...
