If this year has taught people anything, it's that staying at home doesn't equate to a boring time. Whether you're celebrating with your partner, hanging out virtually with your friends and family on Zoom/Meet, or even going solo for the night, there's nothing wrong with slipping into a new glamorous dress to close out the year.

No matter what kind of event you're headed to, we have found the perfect New Year's Eve dresses for a festive party or a cozy night at home.

Slip dress

A slip dress is rather a self-sufficient piece that doesn’t require many accessories or too many details. Add metallic shoes, statement earrings and a chic clutch, and you are good to go. A blazer, a coat or a trench coat will be awesome coverups for your slip dress as well.


Sequinned dresses come back every New Year’s Eve and have become a seasonal classic now. From a pop of glitz to head-to-toe sparkle, a little bit of glam is sure to lift your spirits. When wearing a sequined or sparkly garment, keep your jewelry on the smaller, more minimal side.

Chic pajamas

New Year’s Eve celebrations are expected to be low key this year, so if the extent of your plans include ordering takeout and binge watching or drinking, you might as well keep your OOTD casual too and change into chic pajamas instead of your regular ones to get that new year feel.

Sweater dress

Whether you’ll be snuggled up on the couch or have outdoor plans, you can not go wrong with a sweater dress. Not only will it keep you warm all night, but it’s also a piece that you either already own or can wear again. We just recommend adding on some statement earrings and necklace to freshen up the staple. You can keep things casual with a pair of white sneakers or heeled booties, or dress it up with a chunky belt, statement jewelry, and strappy footwear. The possibilities are endless.


Go for a monochrome outfit by wearing a white crop top and skirt. Add all the glitz and glam to this outfit using golden accessories and eye makeup or you can layer a T-shirt or turtleneck underneath to up the cozy factor, and throw on a pair of white sneakers for any last-minute errands.
