This year I am going full sequins. I’ve worn a sequined top before, and a bottom. But, I have never worn a dress that is entirely sequin. To go full sequin one needs to either be performing a concert or going to a NYE party. And this year I’m going to a NYE party (!) So I thought not only will I rock all sequin, but I’ll also share the what to wear to a New Year’s Eve Party — sequin dress for the win (in case you’re also deciding on what kind of girl you’re going to be in the New Year).
Why a Sequin Dress is the Perfect Dress for New Year’s Eve
In regular life, I’m definitely not a girl who wears a long of gold sequin mini dresses, but for New Year’s it sets the perfect tone for a night of celebrating. The best part, is you don’t have to pay a lot for the perfect sequin dress, you can find a sequin dress from Forever 21 or H&M at a reasonable price point. But the sequin makes the dress look fancy and luxurious and perfect for a New Year’s Eve party.

I didn’t want to spend a lot because I likely won’t wear this dress again. So I found one that’s under $100! Totally doable for a one-time thing. Mine was a Nordstrom rack find from a few months back, but so you don’t have to go hunting through racks, I thought I’d share some of my favorite dresses.
Pro Tip: What to Wear to a New Year’s Eve Party — Sequin Dress for the Win
I would recommend a sequin dress with sleeves. Sometimes the sequins can feel a bit uncomfortable, but even this one with capped sleeves helps keep my arms from chafing. Otherwise a trick is to put on a lot of lotion on your arms so that they glide easily over the sequins.
For that reason, I also found a few dresses that are shimmery. A shimmery dress is also a great choice for New Year’s Eve.
For the past several years we have been going to Mexico to celebrate New Year’s. It’s a few hour drive from Southern California across the border to Baja, and the hotel we stay at usually creates a black tie celebration. I wrote a bit about that trip in this post if you have the opportunity to visit, I would absolutely recommend it.
