The last couple years I’ve done jack shit for New Year’s Eve convincing myself that being a hermit is permissible every day of the year, even for something as exciting as the new year. Not this year! I’m looking for a balance of style, comfort and maybe just a sprinkle of sexy.
I styled this faux suede dress as an option for NYE. It’s much too cold in Michigan to only wear the dress and typically, I layer on a leather jacket, but I loved the idea of adding a layer underneath the dress, plus sleek, over-the-knee boots.
My Top Dress Picks
If you like something a little edgy and not over-the-top glam, here are a few ideas for NYE dresses:
- This satin mini dress comes with bell sleeves, showing off the legs and covering everything else, the kind of balance I love!
- Free People swing dresses are my jam. This one seems perfect for a night out and I love the color options. Or consider this velvet boho number that comes in four colors. Or even this sequined tee shirt dress, a little glam, but could be styled super edgy.
- This one might be my favorite! A little Topshop tie front mini dress that comes in black, olive or red. It’s the dress that if you get a little sloppy, nothing falls out or gets misplaced. Super easy and perfect for an effortless look.
- Wrap dresses are a great option and this velvet version is available in two colors and under $30. H&M also has this $18 ribbed jersey dress, which is something you could easily style up for NYE and restyle for virtually any other occasion.
