Our Favorite Embellished Dresses For a Glitzy New Year's Eve
New Year's Eve is the perfect excuse to bring out your boldest, most exciting wardrobe pieces: sky-high shoes, form-fitting silhouettes, and the coolest costume jewelry. The more eye-catching, the better.
Ahead, we're highlighting our favorite embellished dresses to ring in the new year in style. Whether you want a stunning hem-to-hem sequin mini, a metallic number with layers upon layers of gold fringe, or a more subtle black midi with just a few rows of glitz, we have something that will have you sparkling just as much as your Champagne.
ASOS Design Mini Dress in Velvet with Art Nouveau Embellishment in Dark Green
Rows of intricate pearl detailing, crystal embellishments, and peek-a-boo mesh panels give this long-sleeved mini ($170, originally $212) a celebratory look and feel. We love the rich forest-green velvet material and the regal mock neck. Since the dress itself is as decorative as a piece of jewelry, keep your accessories simple. A pair of classic black pumps will do the trick.
ASOS Edition Pearl Embellished Body-Conscious Mini Dress in Soft Green
You'll stand out from the crowd in this beautiful long-sleeved mini ($262, originally $327) in pastel green. Embellished with little pearls and sequins throughout, it's both elegant and playful. Pair it with a bold white headband (as pictured) and some strappy silver heels, and you'll be ready for your celebratory New Year's Eve out on the town.
Ramy Brook Gio Sequined Floral-Embroidered Minidress
For a vibrant, eye-catching take on the little black dress, try this striking mini ($545) embellished with an array of orange, pink, and red flowers (complete with plenty of sequins, too). The best part: with adjustable straps, you can ensure the square neckline and low back hit right where you want.
ASOS Design Wrap Midi Pencil Dress With Stud Embellishment
If you prefer a midi dress, we've got a sophisticated but still plenty festive option ($93, originally $185) right here. With a flattering wrap silhouette, billowy blouson sleeves, and a super-low V-neck, it's the perfect evening dress for the holiday season and beyond. We didn't even mention the vertical rows of sparkling sequins and silver studs. There's just that much to love.
ASOS Design Shard Detail Midi Dress With Sheer Waist Detail in Pink
This dress ($148, originally $185) is embellished not with sequins, studs, or pearls, but with shards upon shards of shiny fringe. With a festive pinky-red hue and a devilish side slit, it's got party written all over it.
ASOS Design Embellished Mini Dress in Square Mono Sequin
Bring back the '60s this New Year's Eve with this disco mini ($112, originally $140) featuring rows of square silver sequins, a square neckline, and cutouts. Adjust the straps to suit your shape, pop on a pair of shoes, and you'll be the most dazzling guest at the party.
Alice + Olivia Fifi Sequin & Fringe Fitted Minidress
The only thing more festive than the sequin-embellished bodice of this dress ($995) is the golden fringe skirt. It's simply stunning from hem to hem. Need to get really fancy for your New Year's Eve party? Slip on a faux-fur coat and some velvet pumps for a black-tie look that'll turn heads.
ASOS Design All-Over Disc Embellished Mini Shift Dress
Get in on the Barbiecore trend with this dazzling dress ($108, originally $135). Layered with rows of bright-pink discs, it is a fantastical twist on the classic shift and will serve you well no matter your New Year's Eve plans. Stay on theme with bright-pink pumps, or make the dress the star of the show with something simple and black.
Tadashi Shoji Long-Sleeve Minidress
Perhaps you don't want hem-to-hem sparkle and prefer something just a bit more subtle. Try this sophisticated long-sleeved mini ($228) by Tadashi Shoji. With sequined cuffs and slit, it's got just the right amount of sparkle to stun on New Year's Eve and any other time of year.
Milly Scottie Sequined Lace Minidress
This party-ready minidress ($695) features sequin flowers atop a fitted long-sleeved nude sheath. It'll catch the light whether you're dancing at the club or sitting down to a fancy dinner (or both!). You don't need to do much accessorizing with this embellished dress: throw on a pair of silver sandals and some studs, and you'll ring in the New Year in style.
