16 non-cliché sequinned dress options to rock at your year-end parties
Bling it on
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.
Unlike the rest of the embellished dresses on our list, this Saks Potts number is made in a stretchy fabric that gives it a slight edge.
PS: The sequins on this one-shoulder piece are reversible.
Is '90s your favourite era? This halter neck dress is the perfect piece to embrace the throwback trend.
Take a style cue from its runway by layering a bustier over to amp up the interest.
Your favourite slip dress is given a one-up with oriental-inspired tiger motif and feather hem.
This peekaboo piece lets you flaunt some skin too.
All you need is a pair of earrings and ankle-strap heels to complete the look.
The feminine piece features sleeves that can be styled on or off-shoulder.
The degradé-effect dress is radiating major Studio 54 vibes, and we're all for it.
The cut-outs and dramatic puff sleeve give the LBD that added interest.
Girly girls: this tulle number with a sweetheart-neckline couldn't be any more perfect.
You can always count on Halpern to make your sequin dreams come true.
The blue floral lace panel gives the fully embellished number a striking juxtaposition.
Chic yet comfortable, this dress is our pick to dance the night away in.
Can't get enough of slip dresses? This minimal piece has just the right hint of shine.
We love how versatile this dress is—style it with a pair of pointy-toe pumps for a glam finish, or a pair of chunky brogues or sneakers to give it a casual contrast.
