1. Sequins are Sensational

Nothing is more festive than sequin dresses on New Year’s Eve, one type of embellishment that looks fabulous at any age. If you want to show off that figure you have worked so hard on all year, New Year’s Eve dresses with sequins will highlight all your curves.  You often see sparkly New Year’s Eve dresses with sequins in black, gold, or silver, but this dress has a modern spin with subtle colored stripes.  I love this classy sequinned sheath!

2. Lace Looks Lovely

O0h, la la! Black new year’s eve dresses are always so popular, and there are a ton of Little Black Dresses out there, but this one feels sophisticated and sexy! It’s hard to find a dress that balances covering up your less favorite parts (for many women, it’s their aging arms) with highlighting your best bits, like your legs. This dress solves that problem.

The stunning front slit is pure glam, and the lace sides look pretty sexy. But don’t worry, those lace side panels are lined. No one will see anything. Accent this look with black strappy pumps and a nude clutch. Then add some vertical crystal earrings which subtly echo those long lace side panels. It’s a great way to tie everything together.

What a beautiful dress to toast the New Year in!

3. A Wrap is Really Wow!

You’ve heard me talk many times about how I love wrap dresses and how feminine and fabulous they are for your figure. A wrap style is the perfect New Year’s Eve cocktail dress and will look gorgeous on you as you countdown the clock!

Light, soft colors are a trend for New Year’s Eve 2021 and will carry on into 2022. This pale pink blush color is youthful like a baby’s cheeks, and will lighten and lift your complexion. The glam sequins are arranged in such a modern pattern. This New Year’s Eve dress is an absolute knock-out!

The key to this look is to keep your accessories light, like the dress. Black accessories would weigh down the dress and take away the glam look.

4. Metallic is Magical

A mix of matte and metallic flowers on this chic cocktail sheath creates glamorous texture and shine and makes this dress stand out in the crowd.

The sheer neckline adds a touch of sexy, while cap sleeves widen the shoulders and create the illusion of a smaller waist.

This is more than just a New Year’s Eve party dress. It would also look great if you were the guest at a January or February wedding or if you had a special event to attend. The burgundy mixed with black is sophisticated and high-end.

5. A Sparkly Knit is Special

Here’s an attractive New Year’s Eve dress that’s as cozy as it is glam. That’s because it is a sweater dress! This sparkly knit with the zigzag pattern is modern and different for an end-of-year bash.

It would be adorable at a house party when you don’t feel like wearing pants, but you don’t want to look over-the-top glam, either.

Warning- no central dancing in an NYE dress like this. A sweater dress will feel pretty hot on a crowded dancefloor, and you don’t want to have a major meltdown on the last day of the year! ( LOL). Cocktails and chitchat seem more suited to this cute New Year’s Eve dress that’s sure to dazzle!
