New Year's Eve—some love it, some hate it. But whatever your feelings towards this event and whatever you have planned, we guarantee you'll want to find the perfect party dress. So what are the rules for New Year's Eve party dresses? Similar to the Christmas variety, there's much more satin and sequin than the usual party attire.
We're personally keen to spend the last day of the year on a high wearing the gaudiest of dresses, and if that means we look a bit like we've had an accident with a pot of glitter, so be it. However, that's not always for everyone, so here's a rule most can agree on: If it's a dress that makes you feel like dancing and singing "Auld Lang Syne," we suggest you buy it. To that end, we've hunted down some of the best New Year's Eve party dresses on the internet right now. From chic sheer gowns to velvet strapless creations as well as plenty of sequin frocks, there's sure to be something for all.
