As far as holidays go, I tend to think that New Year's Eve is a little overrated. There's so much pressure to go out and have an amazing night... but the bars are always overcrowded and overpriced, and it's usually freezing cold outside. The one thing I do love about New Year's Eve though is the opportunity to wear fun, sparkly dresses! Because who doesn't love that?! Check out my favorite New Year's Eve dress picks below. Happy New Year!!
Jack Wills Fit and Flare Dress with Metallic Dobby Print
I LOVE the back of this dress! And the velvet is very on trend this season. If you're not big into sequins, this is a more subtle way to bring the shimmer and glamour to NYE. This dress would be comfortable to wear all night, but still looks festive and cute.
Available at Asos, $89.95
Tie-Neck Tuxedo Jumpsuit
Some women can pull off a tailored jumpsuit extremely well - and I really admire that!! I love how different this look is. It's elegant yet edgy, and you could accessorize it in so many different ways. And how comfortable would this be on the dance floor?! If you want to stand out on NYE, this is a cool look to try.
Available at Banana Republic, $148
French Connection Desiree Disco Minidress
Okay... this dress is definitely out of my price range, but I had to include it because I think it's so fun! It has a vintage, disco look to it that I love, and it's shimmery and festive. Plus its loose fitting so it will be comfortable and flattering, no matter how many glasses of champagne you down. ;)
Available at Nordstrom, $228
Foil Polka Dot Ruffle Wrap Dress
Maybe it's just the beret in this picture, but I feel like this dress gives off a cool French girl vibe and I love it! The metallic foil polka dots are fun and festive, and this dress would look cute with tights and boots if the weather is cold. The wrap fit is extremely flattering too! It looks festive without trying too hard.
Available at Urban Outfitters, $99
Metallic Sequin Shift Dress
I feel like New Year's Eve is the one day a year that it's okay to wear a crazy amount of sequins. This dress is soooo sparkly and fun and I love the pink color. It will stand out amongst a sea of black dresses. The t-shirt silhouette keeps it from looking too overdone, and the price is budget friendly!
Available at Forever21, $32.90
Honey Punch Long Sleeve Tea Dress With Ruffle Trim in Star Print
This dress looks sweet and simple from the front but has a fun surprise in the back! The ruffles are festive and cute and I love the subtle star print. And another bonus... it's super affordable!!
Available at Asos, $34
Lily Star Floral Velvet Burnout Cut Out Dress
I love the colors on this dress! It's a nice option if you want to wear something other than black. And it looks cute without being super form fitting, so you can eat and drink and be merry all night without worrying about the dreaded "bloat." Also - this is another super affordable option!
Available at Target, $27.99
