RALEIGH, N.C. -

Finding the right outfit for your holiday party can be a challenge.

Finding the balance between trendy and comfortable can be tough, but it's important to find that balance in order to look the best in front of family and friends.

To the rescue is local fashion designer and mom Zankhna Parekh.

Parekh says that right now, sequins are hot. Sequin dresses are one of the most classic choices and anything with sequins are the most popular choice for New Year's Eve outfits.

If sequins are a little too much dazzle and shine, picking out an outfit with deep, rich hues is another way to go. Choose colors that are in for the season such as deep purple and rich, dark forest green.

But for those just wanting to be warm and comfy for the night, try a dressy sweater or a nice formal blouse and accessorize it with sparkly earrings and other sparkly accessories. Parekh suggests wearing heels to tie in the whole look.

Parekh says any outfit can be "jazzed" up with accessories.
