Newsflash: They’re all on sale

We know what you’re thinking—sequins for NYE? Groundbreaking. But after a tough year, there’s no better outfit to end the year (and kick-start 2021) with a bang. No matter how small your celebration will be, the only brief is to look like a human disco ball—in the most non-cliché and stylish way possible.

Instead of a sparkly, slinky slip dress or a mini tube dress, we’ve narrowed down 16 shimmery designs that will get you in the party spirit regardless of your budget (one word: sale!). Some of our favourites include Rixo’s degradé-effect midi number, Self-Portrait’s off-shoulder tulle piece, The Attico’s oriental-inspired gown, and more. Prepare to shine the night away.
