The most stunning New Years dresses to say goodbye to 2023 & see in 2024
New Years Eve dresses 2023 – 2024 and party outfits in general are my favorite thing to shop for as I love glamorous sparkling styles. As a fashion blogger, I start scouting out styles super early for you to give you the best chance of getting them before they sell out. These stunning styles are the most fabulous, feminine and on trend styles I could find. It’s me, so of course there’s a lot of sparkly styles from designer dresses for New Years Eve to styles under $100. As well as both sexy new year dresses and elegant options for dinners or black tie dress codes. If sparkly or sexy new years dresses aren’t your thing, a simple LBD can easily be made festive with the right shoes, bag & accessories.

Best New Years Eve party dress 2023-2024 | Pro shopping tips
With supply chain issues still affecting a lot of stores and brands in 2023 it’s worth shopping early. A lot of the styles on this best New Years Eve party dress edit are new releases or pre orders so you can get them before anyone else and before they sell out.
Designer dresses for New Years Eve also sell out fast as they’re made in more limited quantity than high street brands. So I’ll keep an eye out and replace sold out styles as often as I can.
Best New Years Eve Dresses under $150
The best New Years Eve dresses to see in 2024 that won’t break the bank. A lot of the time party dresses are unforgettable statement pieces you only want to wear once and don’t want to splurge on.
Nearly all of the store I’ve linked from also have great return policies if you’re new to a brand and unsure of your sizing and the quality. If the photos below don’t load correctly the 1st time, just refresh the page. For some reason they always load the 2nd time.
Corset Mini Dress Under $150
This sexy corset dress is under $150 and also comes in black. I find it runs true to size and the boning and ruching make it an ultra flattering style. It does run short though, as you can see on me and I’m only 5’2″. So it’d make a great New Years Eve dress for petites.
New Years Eve Dresses | Mid range
Most of the best new years dresses for 2023-2024 I came across seemed to fall into this category ($250-500). The hot pink sexy New Years Eve dresses and 2 piece set are definitely statement outfits and make a difference from the black, red, silver and gold dresses most of us lean towards for the holidays and NYE. I also love the super cute fit and flare style with the tulle underskirt.
Bows are still in style, including hair bows. So whether you go for a simple but elegant black dress that can be worn again and dressed up or down or a statement making style like this bow dress you can’t go wrong. I have a lot of these sparkly new years dresses on my shortlist to update the cocktail dresses section of my wardrobe.

Sexy New Years Eve Dress
If you’re looking for a really on trend NYE outfit this hot pink strapless dress comes with the matching gloves and has super high thigh slits on both legs. It’s also on sale for under $200.
Sparkly New Years Eve Dress
This black and gold sparkly mini is covered in sequins and beading and is stunning when it catches the light. It’s one of my favorite winter festive dresses. The shoulder pads give it structure and it’s fully lined. It also comes in the prettiest hunter green if you want something that’s not black.
New Years Eve Dresses | Designer Edit
If you don’t mind splurging on your NYE dress to see in 2024 in style, these gorgeous designer dresses for New Years Eve literally took my breath away. Bronx and Banco have been on my radar a lot this year with their ultra femme styles and their sexy new year dresses are no exception.
Sparkly holiday dresses will always be a classic choice, so don’t be afraid to bring these back out or to get something new. Balmain’s black sequin long sleeve mini dress or Monique Lhuillier’s pretty pink sequin mini dress are both festive and total knock outs.

Sometimes you want a little more coverage or warmth and these sophisticated styles would be so elegant for NYE. From sleeveless to long sleeve, high low hems to midi dresses, you don’t have to wear a mini to be festive. You can also add long evening gloves, another 2023/2024 fashion trend for extra warmth and a glam touch.
If you like the look of the sheath dresses but aren’t sure about the fit, a belt creates a beautiful, flattering silhouette and breaks up the torso. If you love a sleeveless style, a faux fur shrug is a glamorous way to layer.

New Years Shoes & Accessories
No New Years Eve outfit’s complete without the right accessories. If you don’t have anything that goes with your new dress, these are my favorite shoes from kitten heels to killer heels, bags, evening gloves & accessories for New Years 2023-2024.
Most of them are versatile enough to be worn again and again for weddings and nights out. I tend to prefer simple shoes and accessories with sparkly New Years dresses and sparkly shoes and accessories with black or plain outfits.
Don’t forget the underwear
Underwear can make or break an outfit! A beautiful dress doesn’t look quite so elegant with VPL or bra straps. I’m a thong girl and as much as I love sexy lacy thongs, some dresses require seamless underwear or shapewear.
I was taught by Italians to wear red underwear for good luck on New Years Eve. I still do if my dress doesn’t require nude underwear as I’m big on holiday traditions.
Spanx are nothing to be embarrassed about. My Spanx leggings are my favorite leggings. If your dress is tighter than you’d usually go for, it’s your time of the month, or you want a little extra help, grab a pair for a more flattering fit.
Spanx have got so clever with their designs now and a lot of the shapewear bottoms include strapless, backless or low back bras. Which solve the problem on the top and bottom in one,
If you prefer to go braless, nipple petals go a long way to avoid too much distraction in that area (ladies, you know what I mean). Otherwise a strapless bra is an easy option.
I haven’t personally tried the stick on bras but I’ve linked the best rated one I can find that also offers free shipping and free returns. So if you don’t like it, just send it back. If you have one you love, let me know what it is by messaging me on Instagram so that I can add it.
Posing for New Years Eve photos
Most of us have a body part we aren’t so kind to ourselves about. If you don’t, just skip this part. Mine’s my arms. If you want your arms to look slimmer in your New Years Eve pictures create space between your arms and body either by:
- Holding your bag or clutch at around waist height with a bent elbow.
- Holding the stem of a glass with both hands in front.
- Placing one arm behind someone and the other holding their hand or on your hip.
- Putting your arms behind each other in a group photo.
For a slimmer torso, angle your body away from the camera, don’t be completely straight on. I always shoot up to look taller and slimmer but others prefer to be shot from above to minimize double chins so pick your preference.
Lastly, have the best NYE! I hope you’ve found your best New Years Eve party dress yet and something that makes you feel absolutely fabulous. Thanks so much for reading and following.
