50+ Perfect New Year's Eve Dresses

The countdown is on! Ring in NYE in a party outfit to remember. Here are my 51picks for perfect New Year's Eve dresses – in different styles. From metallic and sequin dresses to maxi length, velvet dreams and flattering bodycons.

If you are anything like me, you haven't decided what to wear on New Year's Eve yet. I usually go for a sequin dress (LOVE this!), but this year I might go for a more laid-back dress, or velvet dress (like this one) and glam it up with jewelry and party makeup.

Whatever you have planned for the night, I hope you have a wonderful time with your loved ones. Whether you're headed to a wild party, classic night in the town or a cozy night with your family – I've got you covered. A lot of dresses are showstoppers, but many are also chic and cute without being over-the-top.
