NYE Dresses Edit 1: The 90's Slip

In case you missed it, the slip dress experienced a resurgence this year. And we're not surprised. This effortless and universally flattering style is easy to wear, elegant and can be dressed up or down.

NYE Dresses Edit 2: All That Glitters

Sparkly, black, full length, or tulle – there's something about New Year's Eve that makes us want to bring out our most dramatic dresses. Maybe it's the mark of a new year, new you moment. Maybe it's the glitter and fireworks that define the night. Or maybe, nothing goes so well with a sparkler as a sequinned dress.

NYE Dresses Edit 3: The LBD

Sure, it’s one of the classics but the LBD is an old faithful that never goes out of style. Not to mention when you invest in the perfect LBD you’ll be able to wear it again and again.

NYE Dresses Edit 4: Under $100

In the post-Christmas slump and last minute outfit planning, it's normal to be a little strapped for cash. However, there's no reason you can't get a new dress for the new year – you just have to be a little smarter with your cash. (Be smarter still and use a fashion coupon code to save on your purchase.)

NYE Dresses Edit 5: Expensive Taste

For many fashionistas New Year's Eve is their night to shine. It's the perfect excuse to bring out the big guns and wear that stunning frock that was perhaps a little bit out of your budget. Who cares? It's New Years. You do you.

NYE Dresses Edit 6: Plus Size Picks

More and more stores these days are including plus size edits, so that every woman has more options to choose from. For example, very recently Showpo announced it was offered a range of extended sizing to some of its most popular styles. You can see two of them below.

NYE Dresses Edit 7: Let's Get Lacey

Lace dresses are feminine and elegant, so it's no surprise these were some of the most popular styles in 2016. Bring in the new year with a bang in a hot-to-trot laced up number.

NYE Dresses Edit 7: Day to Night Rompers

Many of you will probably be attending a New Year's Eve event that runs from day to night. As fun as these are, they make picking the perfect outfit rather difficult. You can't turn up to a 2pm barbeque in an evening gown. So what's the solution to the day-to-night dressing dilemma? A playsuit. Playsuits are a style that are absolutely perfect for dressed up daytime drinks but easily transition into being evening wear attire. Problem solved.

Why you should order your New Years Dress online

  • You can try it on at home. Never again will you have to deal with unflattering lights, dodgy change room mirrors, and snooty retail assistants. You can try it on in the comfort of your own bedroom with your own shoes and mirror, and maybe a friend to give you honest opinions.
  • You can return it. Easily. Most online fashion stores understand that things might not always fit. That's okay. Flexible returns policies have been created to give you free returns up to a certain period of time, so if something doesn't fit it's no big deal. If you're unsure of the fit, buy both sizes and return what doesn't work later.
  • Coupon codes. Part of what we do here at finder.com.au is publish coupon codes to save on your online shopping. Sure, you might be able to find something on sale in store, but it's not quite the same as 15% off sitewide, is it? See our coupon page here.
  • Avoid the crowds in store. There's nothing more exhausting than a crowded shopping mall. Save yourself the hassle, get comfy with a laptop, and shop online instead. It's that simple.
