There isn’t a more opportune time to wear a sparkly, sequinned dress than New Year’s Eve. A bold, flashy choice, there are many instances — such as a best friend’s birthday, or a job interview — when an understated look is probably more appropriate. But New Year’s Eve calls for a fun, celebratory look, making sequin dresses one of your best bets. Here are our picks of the best sequin dresses to wear at your New Year’s Eve party.
Talula Canterbury Dress
Get it at Aritzia for $80 CAD
This embroidered dress has a relaxed, loose fit, so you can move around in ease all night long. A subtle keyhole at the back reveals a peek of skin in its trapeze shape. In addition to New Year’s Eve, you can also dress this up with opaque tights, boots and a sweater for a more-glam daytime look.
Get it at Zara for $119 CAD
With its cinched waist, this sequinned dress offers a loose, but still flattering fit. For an evening party, the dress can be paired with strappy heels or even ankle boots.
Short sequined dress
Get it at H&M for $40 CAD
This form-fitting dress is embroidered with sequins and features a deeper neckline in the back. Its jersey lining will ensure that you’re comfortable all night long.
Long sequinned dress
Get it at H&M for $80 CAD
An even more formal option, this backless dress has a collar in the front that can be tightened or loosened, depending on how you’d like the front to fit.
MLV Carmen Matte Sequin Dress
Get it at Urban Outfitters for $330 CAD
With its skinny straps and slinky fit, this shimmery green number gives off major Great Gatsby vibes. This also happens to be one of my favourite sequin dresses out there.
Raga Sequin Swing Dress
Get it at Urban Outfitters for $210 CAD
Entirely embellished with sequins, this high-neck gown would be paired best with an updo, bold lip and statement earrings.
