    1. Have someone in your crew wear a flask tie.


    It'll keep you warm as you move from bar to bar and it'll save money on drinks. Get it from Walmart for $24.95.

    2. Or rock a bra flask for boobalicious booziness.

    This comfy sports bra holds AN ENTIRE BOTTLE OF WINE. Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    3. Get a pair of fleece-lined tights.


    Look cute. Stay cozy. Buy them from Target for $10.

    4. If you're wearing heels (but you usually hate every second of it), tape your toes.

    These two toes share a nerve that can become strained when the toes are separated, which can happen when you’re wearing heels for too long. Taping the toes together can help to alleviate any pain. (It really works!)

    5. Sandpaper the soles of unworn shoes for better traction.

    Champagne + icy sidewalk + drunk = broken ankle.

    6. Line the inside of a shoe with a panty liner to absorb sweat and keep your foot from slipping.

    Added bonus: Removing the liner at the end of the day will also remove any foot odor.

    7. Use Strappy Strips Foot Cushions in the straps of your heels to keep from getting cuts and blisters.

    You can get them here for $7.49.

    8. Layer a turtleneck under a party dress so you can wear your favorite outfit without freezing to death.

    Get a nonbulky cropped turtleneck from Forever 21 for $7.90 (sizes S–L) or a layering turtleneck from Land’s End for $29.50 (sizes XS–3X).

    9. Wearing cute boots for NYE? Winterize them with a pair of Ugg liners for an extra dose of warmth and cushion.

    Get them from Amazon for $14.95+.

    10. If you're wearing pants and heels, try Keysocks.

    Get them here for $14.99.

    11. Keep a microwaveable rice pack in your coat pocket.

    Get it here for $14.99, or you can fill a long sports sock with rice.

    12. Use a tiny Bluetooth tracker if you always lose your shit when you're out partying.

    Put a tracker on your keys, wallet, personal bottle of champagne, whatever. Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    13. To get your pregame started off right, try this spin-the-shot game.

    Buy it from Walmart for $10.72.

    14. Throw on a faux-fur collar to the coat you already have for a little extra ~glam~.
