Whether you’re hitting up an over-the-top shindig that would make Truman Capote proud or ringing in 2018 at home with dear friends (Seamless and Netflix among them), New Year’s Eve merits an extra special outfit. That means no last-minute decisions — and absolutely no lazing around in your PJs.
The very best New Year’s Eve dresses and outfits are accessorized to a T (we’re currently in love with the single dangly earring look), incorporate at least a hint of holiday sparkle (via sequins, jewelry or even a metallic bootie) and don’t cost an arm and a leg. (Save your money for champagne, movie rentals, party tickets.)
In the slideshow above, you’ll find 15 such New Year’s Eve dresses and outfits, all exciting, all impeccably coordinated, all sourced from fast-fashion wunderkind Zara. Go forth and buy ‘em right off the rack or mimic their styling using clothes you already own. Happy outfit planning, and may 2018 be your most stylish year yet.
