    1. A sleeveless dress designed with a sequin bottom for anyone looking to don that typical NYE sparkle...but not *too* much. A solid top + a sequin bottom = the best of both fashion worlds.

    2. A ruffled one-shoulder dress featuring a thigh-high slit for legs that feel like playing a subtle game of peek-a-boo. Bonus points for the fact that this is the perfect shade of lipstick red, which is the only color I want to see in my wardrobe from now on (...other than black).

    3. A maxi dress referred to by Lizzie McGuire while on her (LOL) eighth grade class trip to Rome. Hey now, hey now, this dress combined with an Italian vacation are what dream are made of.

    4. A sleeveless maxi dress that's making me wish I could turn back time, revisit my high school days, and wear this to my senior prom. *shudders at the thought of braces and 8AM classes*

    5. A velvet dress so luxe, it'll look like you just spent the entirety of several paychecks on this one designer item; but surprise! You didn't. This gorgeous number is surprisingly way more affordable than you'd think.

    6. A halter dress everyone (and probably their mother) will be asking to borrow after you post a NYE pic. Personally, I hate to share. I wouldn't blame you for making up some lame excuse and saying no.

    7. A keyhold bandage dress perfect for both NYE *and* every other fancy foreseeable event you came coming up this season. Plus, those transparent sleeves can only be defined by the following emoji: 😍.

    8. A mermaid dress so elegant, you'll feel as if the address on your driver's license lists "Kensington Palace". Prepare to feel and be treated like royalty the moment your toe passes through the doorway of that party.

    9. A stretchy bodycon dress that is actually the epitome of a perfect NYE party dress. Nothing says "let's celebrate a new year!" quite like sequins can, and that's a fact.

    10. A maxi dress designed with convertible straps meaning — YES — this one dress will be like owning one million dresses. This can be worn as a halter dress, a one-shoulder dress, a strapless dress, an off-the-shoulder dress, and ETCETERA.

    11. A cutout sweater dress you'll be able to dress up with heels for parties *and* dress down with sneakers or booties for more casual affairs. A dress you'll be able to wear more than ONCE?! Sound the alarms. Whip out your credit card.

    12. A sequin mermaid gown that Ariel could have only dreamt of wearing. Add "having an Amazon account" to the list of benefits that come with being where the people are (staying all day in the sun, having Prime delivery, etcetera).

    13. A spaghetti strap midi dress you can wear with any of the shoes, purses, and jewelry currently cluttering your closet. The best part about this little number is just how ~plain~ it is, which means you'll be able to doll it up exactly to your liking.

    14. A ruffled V-neck dress it's very likely you'll wear again and again (and again). NYE? Yep. Your birthday dinner? Yep. Someone else's birthday dinner? Yep. Going out to dinner because you don't feel like cooking? Yep yep.

    15. A crewneck knee-length dress best accessorized with fancy jewels and a clutch for that ~epitome of elegance~ kind of style. Meghan Markle, are you there? Hi! I feel like you would wear this.

    16. A one-shoulder cocktail dress that is as perfect for watching the ball drop as is is for that "I BARELY EVEN KNOW THIS COUSIN" wedding you have coming up next month. Those are truly the worst, aren't they?

    17. A sequin flapper dress stolen from the closet of Daisy Buchanan herself. Pair this with some pearls and get ready to ruin the life of a man known as Gatsby.

    18. A stretchy bodycon mini dress so comfortable, it'll feel like you're dancing the night away in your most beloved (and stylish) pajamas. Plus, this can be worn three ways — off-shoulder, one-shoulder, and sleeved.

    19. A bandage dress for some big va va voom energy. This swanky number is guaranteed to get you multiple head turns, several million compliments, and even some "are you [insert celebrity name here]?" questions.

    20. A V-cut evening dress that looks like it was picked up at some fancy (READ: expensive) boutique in a swanky city like Paris or Milan. But where did you actually get it? Amazon. And was it actually expensive? Hell to the no.

    21. A high-neck lace dress sure to have you crooning John Legend as soon as your receive it. "All of me, loves all of you" you'll sing whilst looking at your reflection in the mirror.

    22. A V-neck shift dress perfect for that more low-key gathering in which sequins and stilettos aren't necessary. Pair this with some booties for a slightly more dressed up vibe that doesn't feel too over the top.

    23. A midi dress designed with a thick bandage material that holds everything in place, including your breast friends. That's right, folks! This dress = you won't need to wear a bra and yes, I'm singing celebratory songs myself.

    24. A wrapover dress you'll soon consider a wardrobe staple. The simple design can be glammed up with any accessories (I'm looking at you, sparkly heels I've yet to wear) and is great for any heel-requiring event you have coming up — including that NYE party, of course.

    25. A velvet wrap dress that will leave you drooling upon first glance. This is undeniable proof that love at first sight EXISTS, and suddenly I find myself being empathetic to the case of Romeo and Juliet.

    26. A cocktail dress for anyone ready to retire their current Little Black Dress. It's been 84 years, and it's time to move on...mostly because you've worn your old one to the last 17 events you've attended (as evident by your Instagram).

    27. A bandage dress about to become the pride of your wardrobe. Lovely fishtail hem? Check. Halter straps to give the girls some extra support? Check. Available in several gorgeous colors? Check check check.

    28. A Cupcake and Cashmere dress with floral embroidery and mesh detailing that will have you drooling as soon as you take it out of the packaging: It's just 👏 that 👏 gorgeous👏 .

    29. A sleeveless fit-to-flare dress you'll want to re-wear twice in one month. Facebook pictures be damned, because this pretty thing is perfect for both your NYE party ~and~ that birthday party you have coming up.

    30. A stretchy bodycon dress available in a gorgeous champagne color representative of your drink of choice for the evening.

    31. A trumpet sleeve, ruffle hem midi dress that will have you breathing a sigh of relief. SOUND THE TRUMPETS, folks, because you've just found yourself the perfect dress!

    32. A faux wrap crossover dress for the family party you grudgingly decided to attend. This classic number is beautiful, simple, and elegant — AKA I dare your great-aunt to find something negative to say about what you're wearing.

    33. A scalloped off-shoulder swing dress for shoulders that can't be tamed, à la Miley Cyrus in 2010. (Never forget that iconic music video that began her departure from being known just as a Disney star.)

    34. A sleeved bodycon dress guaranteed to get you at least one million compliments and change — AKA what better way to ring in 2020?

    35. A one-shoulder cocktail dress available in metallic sheens that will have you feeling like a more modern version of Zenon (this is to be taken as a compliment, of course).

    36. A sleeved wrap dress available for both work, party, and play, making it the perfect piece of versatility that everyone needs in their closet. (It's also available in a heck ton of colors, in case the below bubble gum pink is not really your thing.)
