If there is ever a time of year to go all out with party attire, it's New Year's Eve. This festive occasion doesn't need to put a hole in your wallet, though, which is why I've rounded up some of the best Forever 21 New Year's Eve dresses.

Come Dec. 1, my thoughts are on a single track. First, what am I going to do for New Year's, and second, what am I going to wear? Sub-thoughts include, how much money do I want to spend? Dec. 31 is one of the few nights a year when people like me, usually non-sequin wearers, can join in on the glittery fun without fear of being overdressed or out of place. Even if you think you'd never be caught dead in anything sparkly, I urge you to try it out this year. Go ahead and make a late 2017 New Year's resolution to wear sequins on New Year's Eve. You can do it, I believe in you.

Now that we've you settled you'll shine  brighter than the Time's Square Ball, why not use the evening as an excuse to buy a new dress? New Year's Eve parties can range from an all-out gala to a chill night in with friends, but no matter what's on your calendar this year, Forever 21 has you covered.
