New Year’s Eve Dresses in Every Style

It’s been a few years since I’ve gone “out out” on New Year’s Eve (the past few years I’ve either been pregnant or had a baby), but that doesn’t mean a girl can’t dream, right? There will come a day when we have a babysitter and can go out to a nice dinner and *gasp* maybe even stay up past midnight.

For those of you who are celebrating this year, here are some New Year’s Eve dresses in every style, all from Nordstrom.

Sequin Dresses for New Years Eve

When I think of New Years Eve outfits, I immediately think of sequins. Whether the outfit is all-over sequins or a just a hint of them via an accessory, it’s an easy way to dress for any NYE dress code. The dresses below offer a range of sleeve lengths and styles for every party.

Metallic Dresses for New Years Eve

If you’re not ready to commit to full-on sequins, metallic fabrics, colors, and accents are another great option for a New Year’s Eve dress. While we usually associate metallic with colors like bronze, silver, and gold, this year’s styles include bright pinks and jewel tones (shown in the picks below).

Satin Dresses for New Year’s Eve

I love, love the look of satin dresses, but can only pull them off when I’m 1. pregnant, or 2. at my thinnest. I know that sounds funny, but when you’re pregnant I find that tight stain can accentuate the bump! The options below come in just about every color of the rainbow.

Which dresses are your favorite? What will you be wearing for NYE this year?


  1. NYE is definitely the time for a little sparkle. That yellow satin midi dress is so cute! It’s been years since I’ve gone out for New Year’s since we like to be in bed by 10:30 at our house haha.
