Top 10 NYE party dresses


Share This Article:

Whatever your style, we've got you covered for your New Year's Eve 2013 party! Take a look at our pick of the best dresses for a top night of drinks and dancefloors, and see in the New Year in style...

1. If you can’t be all shiny and sparkly on New Year’s Eve, then when can you? The metallic trend isn’t disappearing anytime soon and, with this Miss Selfridge dress (£55) also featuring 2013’s favourite funnel neck, you can nail two trends in one.  Let the dress speak for itself, or accessorize with muted silver jewellery and smoky eyes to tone down the high shine.



2. The love for Luhrmann’s take on The Great Gatsby is still going strong, as is our fondness for embellished art deco styles. Streamlined drop-waist shapes are key to this style and, if you want to embrace the trend whilst avoiding a full-on flapper look, try out this TFNC dress (£59) which takes all the best bits of deco style; a scallop hem, drop waist and heavy beading. Just add a cocktail ring or two, and Charleston the night away.



3. Pastel pink is still being hailed as THE shade for 2014, after being the go-to coat colour this winter. Give your fellow partygoers a taste of things to come and see in the New Year dressed in this super sweet pink prom dress from Topshop (£75).  The classic shape suits almost everyone and, finished with a slick of red lipstick, channels ‘50s fashion at its finest.


4. A shimmering cream and silver jacquard fabric keeps this feminine River Island dress (£45, but £20 right now in the sale!) from being too ‘girly’, while the attached gemstone necklace adds that necessary party touch, and saves you having to worry about which jewellery to wear – winner!

5. Unleash your inner Marilyn with this hot little number from Motel Rocks (£58)! It takes a little confidence to show off your curves in a tight bodycon dress and, with all-over sparkling burgundy sequin detail, this dress is the definition of eye-catching! Pop a copy of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes in the DVD player while you get ready, and see how Ms Monroe works the look.


6. If your NYE do is set to be quite a sophisticated affair, such as a black-tie dinner, then an elegant floor-sweeping maxi dress is a fail-safe option.  Monochrome is a colour combination that never goes out of style, so choose a gown like this New Look example (£54.99) – a simple sweetheart neckline with minimal embellishment – that can be worn again and again.



7. If you’re a fan of bright colours all year round, and prefer to ignore all of the glossy advice that winter is a time for navy and berry shades, give your NYE outfit the shock factor with this near-neon lime dress from River Island (£45). With such a bright pop of colour, keep accessories to a minimum (yes, even at New Year’s there is such a thing as ‘too much’!) to avoid the outfit looking overdone.


8. Feathers are set to have us all in a flap in 2014, so get ahead of the game for NYE with this Lipsy dress – lace, feathers, a drop waist, and available in black, nude and black and gold as well as navy, what’s not to love? It’s pricey at £115 but, if fashion forecasts are anything to go by, you’re going to be wearing it pretty much all everyday next year anyway – it’s an investment, really…

9. If you’ve overindulged a bit over Christmas and don’t feel 100% happy digging out your favourite bandage dress, this New Look shift (£39.99) is a godsend – loose enough to hide any evidence of excess eating, but not so big that it looks completely shapeless.  The muted black and gold Aztec sequin pattern livens up this simple shape and, teamed with chunky gold tribal jewellery, might just become your new favourite outfit – bye bye bodycon!


10. Simple? Yes. Plain? Yes. But trust us; this slip dress from Topshop (£38) will fast become your staple LBD.  This piece sold out in a range of colours throughout 2013, but is back in classic black for the Autumn/Winter season.  The beauty of this dress is that it is essentially a blank canvas for you to style however you please.  Stack up the jewellery; wear those statement shoes that go with absolutely nothing you own; try out a daring new make-up look – the possibilities are endless, proving that this dress is anything but simple!
