see the first great outfits of 2012!

We always think that NYLON readers are the best-dressed girls in the world, but now we have proof: Your New Year's street style submissions were amazing, and fun, and cool, and many times covered in sequins.  (The tasteful kind, though, not the Jersey Shore variety...)

Our Top Eight outfit picks are below, and you can see lots more in our Reader Street Style gallery.  And if you missed out this time, be sure to follow us on Facebook, Tumblr, and Twitter - that's where we put out calls for style stars!
