An unforgettable evening starts with an unforgettable outfit. Galleria Dallas offers a plethora of party-worthy possibilities, but we thought we’d narrow it down to a few standouts, starting with this sequined strapless dress from Aftershock London. Or opt for one of these sultry numbers from Bebe and Marciano. This jumpsuit from Zara is perfect for ringing in the New Year with friends or, layered with a crisp blazer, wearing to the office.

But it’s not all about you, ladies. Even the gents like an excuse to amp up their look. They might just luck out and find a piece they love at Zara while you’re shopping for you, such as this dapper velvet blazer. Thomas Pink and Banana Republic are also solid options for curating show-stopping, masculine looks, including this casual yet sophisticated pullover and these to-die-for red trousers.

Now that the outfit is taken care of, it’s time to think about dinner. Grand Lux Cafè and Mi Cocina are fun for the entire family, offering a wide variety of dishes to enjoy. If you want a menu that appeals to a more refined palate, head to The Second Floor by Scott Gottlich, The Oceanaire or The Grill on the Alley. From creative cocktails to succulent seafood and steaks, these culinary destinations will make your last meal of 2015 one you will never forget. Due to high demand on New Year’s Eve, make sure to call ahead for reservations and ask about special menus to avoid any unwanted surprises.

And before you leave the kiddos with a sitter to enjoy a night out on the town, make sure they get to have a little New Year’s Eve fun of their own. The skating rink is open from 10AM to 5PM and from 6PM to 10PM. Admission is $10 and skate rental is $3. This is also your last chance to get a look at Galleria Dallas’ magnificent Christmas tree, which takes center stage on the ice.

Want to make a staycation out of your New Year’s Eve festivities? Book a room at The Westin Galleria Dallas, located inside the Galleria Dallas complex, so you can dine and then dash to your room if partying the night away is not your cup of tea.

Cheers to 2016!
