Ring The Alarm:10 Fabulous New Year’s Eve Dresses Under $100
Ladies, time is quickly ticking away. And if you’re planning on stepping out this New Year’s Eve, the time to get your dress is now! We’re sure that you proactive ones already have your outfit hanging up against your bedroom door, so it won’t get wrinkled; but for those of us procrastinators out there, like myself, check out some of the flyy New Year’s Eve dresses that can be yours, all for under $100…before shipping that is.
If I Were A Boy
If you’re not really a sequin type of girl, this asymmetrical, tuxedo-looking dress is the move you want to make. It’s understated but the contrast in hem lines will make sure to you don’t go unnoticed when you enter or exit the venue. With the double breasted, gold buttons as the only spark of flair on this black dress, you’ll have to be sure to add your own unique accessories to complete the look.
Sparkle, Girl, In Your Eye
If you ask me, New Year’s Eve is the time to shine. And what better way to do that than with this one-sleeved, above the knee dress. There are more than enough metallic colored sequins on this number, but it’s still not overdone. This one will look nice with platform shoes or some medium heels.
Little Miss Thang
If you don’t have that one person in your family, who treats every gathering, every party, every cook out as a chance to stunt, then chances are, you are that relative. So there’s no need to tone it down now that we’re about to celebrate the fact that we made it through yet another year. This bedazzled short, navy blue dress with a chiffon tutu may be a little over the top for most; but if you’re ready to kick it up a notch, this is the dress to do it.
The Lela Rochon
If you’re a Waiting To Exhale fan, this dress should look familiar to you. Remember the scene where Lela Rochon, “Robin,” went to that seedy party with her drug addict boyfriend, Troy? Well, she was wearing a dress that looked an awful lot like this one right here. If you’re one with a soft spot for Terry McMillan’s characters and have been coveting that dress since the ’90’s, then it’s time to make it happen. I’m sure a few WTE fans will recognize the homage as soon as you step into the spot.
Yo Name Must Be Candy
Sometimes we’re naughty and sometimes we’re nice. If you want to bring in the New Year in your nice girl persona, consider this two toned dress from Lulu’s. With a rose gold bodice and cream colored tutu, you’ll look innocent, yet sophisticated.
So you’re not quite sure you want to commit to full on sequins but you still want to sparkle, so glitter might be the next best thing. The blue-green ombre glitter on this velvet bodycon dress will allow you to shine without doing too much.
Some of us love all gold everything and the rest of us dig silver. If you belong to the second group this black and silver slip from Top Shop is probably calling your name. What I really like about this dress is the fact that the way the sequins are placed, makes it look like it’s snowing on your top.
Flap Your Wings
The dress of the 20’s was the flapper dress, with beading that moves when you do, the flapper looks great on the dance floor. With a great pair of heels, you’ll have legs for days. The movement of the beads as you drop something will be sure no one will be able to take their eyes off of you.
If this doesn’t remind you of the Poison Ivy villain from the Batman series, then I don’t know what will. Though you might associate a green like this with Christmas, the color of the blue undertones, give it a totally different feel. With some stockings and a wedge heel, you just might shut something down on Monday night/Tuesday morning.
“Is That Velvet?!?”
Looking to eliminate some of the drama from your life and simplify in 2013, you can start with this solid, red velvet dress from Urban Outfitters. With a scoop neck and three quarter sleeves, you’ll definitely be warm. What makes this dress more than ordinary is the bow detail on that back.
