For those of you who are lucky enough to be in a loving and happy relationship, congratulations — you are officially envied by the rest of who are celebrating New Year’s solo (and bitterly at that).
So, while the rest of us party our way into 2012 hunting for that perfect midnight smooch, you may be opting out of the crowds and drunken masses in exchange for a mellow night in with your honey. Sure, you want to cozy up and snuggle your way into 2012, but leave the yoga pants for the gym, mmkay?
Just because you’re attached at the hip doesn’t mean hip huggers and oversized sweatshirt is the look of the evening. If anything, you can take MORE chances with your style since you’re pretty much guaranteed to get lucky once the stroke of midnight has come and gone.
Looking for a little inspiration? We break down the best way to celebrate NYE with your best accessory — your better half.
Being comfy doesn't mean sacrificing looking cute. Treat your hubby to a casually chic dinner date night for your NYE night in.
