If you like to sparkle on New Year's Eve, why not take a cue from a celebrity who has mastered the art of shine -- Jennifer Lopez. This clutch ($89, Kohl's) from the "American Idol" judge's eponymous line is covered in sequins. With an optional chain-link strap, the bag is comfortable to carry and holds more than the average evening bag. Wear it with a simple black dress for a glamorous nighttime look.
