New Year’s Eve Dresses for 2016

In these times of political turmoil and economic anxiety, it feels impossible to talk about anything other than how to get ahead in 2016, especially in New York City. New York is the city of dreams, but its also the city of deadlines, pressure, and that one person you can’t say no to. You know the kind.

Nothing says “I’m thinking about you” like a well-chosen dress that you feel confident in. Take this dress, for instance. It’s a super flattering fit with an A-line shape, giving you the full look from the neck to the hips, while the scoop neckline, three-quarter length sleeves and keyhole detailing boosts your confidence.

For those of you in my generation (I’m talking late 30s/early 40s here), New Year’s Eve is synonymous with sparkly dresses. While I’m not personally a fan of the sequins and heavy jewelry, I am an advocate of pretty party dresses. With that in mind, I looked back at some of my favorite plus size New Year’s Eve dresses over the years and picked some of my favorites for 2016.


It seems like I wrote this piece on New Year’s Eve only yesterday. Isn’t it crazy that it’s almost time to ring in the new year? Let’s start with the most essential aspect of the year: your New Year’s Eve outfit. This shimmer maxi dress from Urban Outfitters was a great discovery, and I strongly suggest it! It’s very soft, elastic, and flattering.

I’ve also always been a fan of NastyGal for this particular occasion because they have a great selection of fun, festive, and sexy dresses that are really affordable (this red one is only $58!). Another great option this year is Urban Outfitters. They’ve got some great picks (like my dress), but move fast because they’re going quickly! ASOS is the best for affordable & unique party dresses too, so definitely check that out! I’ve picked out some of my favorite New Year’s Eve dresses for you to shop below.
