We’re here to help you narrow down your search to the hottest looks that will have you looking the most glamorous and the most ready to take on the new year!
Go Gold, Baby! Gold New Year’s Dresses
A classic choice for New Year’s Eve is gold. It can be worn channeling any era with any style and looks good on every skin tone, size and look. Rock a metallic, shimmery fitted gold cocktail dress for a glam rebel look; or, a gold cocktail dress with sequins or intricate beading, paired with a bold red lip, slicked down hair and sky-high heels for that classic gatsby glam look.
Sexy in Silver. Silver New Year’s Dresses
This is another classic metallic that looks flattering on everyone. Satin is in right now, but it was introduced late in the year, which means it’s a perfect transitional texture to take you from 2018 to 2019. The shine of silver satin just looks luxurious and glam, perfect for wearing to New Year’s Eve events. Wear a silver cocktail dress in the shift silhouette, the empire waist silhouette or bodycon dress for an ultra-appropriate look.
Go Bold or Go Home: Red New Year’s Eve Dresses
If you’re not one to wear big, bright colors during most of the year, what better time to break out of your color shell and stand out than New Year’s Eve! And if you are, then you are more than ready to rock a vibrant, rich color. Red is another classic color that brings out the best in everyone. Slay in a red cocktail dress in any of the trending silhouettes on New Year’s and pair with a chunky black heel. A fun-loving, youthful style is the skater dress silhouette - nice and fitted at the top with a fun, flirty flare at the bottom. Or go for a chic, sophisticated look with a red lace shift dress - a perfect, demure style for both mom and a young daughter. If solid red isn’t your top pick, try a printed look to keep the winter vibes alive - a red midi dress with a floral print is flattering, unique and stand-out choice for any end of the year party.
Last Night to Shine: Sparkly Dresses
End of the year style is about shining - literally. We see fireworks in the night sky, light up sparklers, spin disco balls, decorate with tinsel and metallics - match the occasion and indulge in ultra-glam style with a sparkly dress! Whether it’s glitter, sequins, sparkly beading or whatever, those sparkly dresses you’ve been dying to wear all year are the go-to dresses for new year’s eve! The only other time you get to wear sparkle is when you’re out for a night on the town. Shine is usually only reserved for club dresses. Well, New Year’s Eve gives you that chance to wear it! The fun thing about sparkle is that it enhances any color and any print - whether you’re choosing to wear on-trend colors like navy blues or deep, emerald greens - or classic metallics, elegant nudes or bold hues like red, fuchsia or purple - sparkle will turn anything into the perfect new year’s dress.
