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.
The silver collar on this little black sequin dress means one less accessory you need to worry about, because voila, it's a built-in necklace!
I found out the hard way one year that alcohol, rompers, and tights make going to the bathroom an arduous task, but anything for fashion, right?

Velvet is still big, it also keeps you nice and warm in the winter, especially with long sleeves.
Winter white FTW.
I. Love. Polka. Dots. (See what I did there with the periods?)
This slinky LBD is a classic NYE option, I bet you'll be able to get use out of it a couple of times during the rest of the year, too.
