Sparkle, glitz and glam. New Year’s Eve is the one night of the year when you can pull out all the stops and have fun dressing like a movie star! Check out these Glam New Year’s Eve Dresses that are flattering over 40.
1. Sequins are Sensational
Nothing is more festive than sequin dresses on New Year’s Eve, and they’re one type of embellishment that looks fabulous at any age. If you want to show off that figure you have been working so hard on all year, New Year’s Eve dresses with sequins will highlight all your curves.
Most of the time, you see sparkly New Year’s Eve dresses with sequins in black, gold, or silver, but this dress has a modern spin – lavender sequins!
Lavender is a fresh and pretty color inspired by the pastels in the winter trend. It looks stunning with black accessories and is a color that can be worn year-round.
One special mention of the fabulous neckline on this dress. The V is a beautiful way to highlight your decolletage and helps to balance your figure when you are more of a pear shape than an hourglass. Plus, it just looks so positively glam too! Love this classy sequinned sheath!
2. Lace Looks Lovely
OOh, 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 too. 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 as you countdown the clock!
Isn’t it interesting that, like the lavender dress I showed you earlier, this is also a pastel? Light, soft colors seem to be a trend for New Year’s Eve 2018 and will carry on into 2019.
This soft 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 a real knock-out!
The key to this look is to keep your accessories light like the dress. Black accessories would weight 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 make this dress stand out in the crowd.
The sheer neckline adds a touch of sexy, while caps 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 interesting 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 the year bash.
I think it would be especially lovely 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 major dancing in an NYE dress like this. A sweater dress is going to 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!
