Not even the Times Square ball drop can hold a candle to these Chicago women who dazzle in sequins and glitter, grabbing attention with every twist and turn. Whether in a bright color or a silvery sheen, pick a dress with a flash of shoulder and a flattering cut.

You’re sure to start 2013 with a bright statement and the resolution to always be confident, daring and stylish.[nggallery id=trendsparkle]
