New Years Eve may be long-gone, but the sparkle that typifies the frocks most ladies wore on the big night is still around, shining, shimmering, and even blinding us in some cases. We like it too. Sequins, beads and metallics evoke fun, cheer and excitement, and who doesn't need that at the start of new year- or all year round for that matter?

Still, looking like a disco ball ain't for everyone, and this week WORN OUT offers a quartet of sexy, sequined LBDs (little black dresses), shot on NYE and the week after, to get inspired by. The frocks go from vintage-style to hoochie-ish, but the way each gal made them her own proves black shine always looks fine. Check 'em out!

Funky accessories make this hip chick stand out at Cinespace.

Plunging necklace and bigger sequins look sexy at Gridlock.

Strappy and fitted are a good fit at Gridlock.
