Dresses between $100 and $300

Sequins and ruffles

No New Year's Eve celebration is complete without some sparkle and you're sure to sizzle in this fabulous Rare Opulence frock (, $230). A ballet-inspired boned sequined bodice in gold is paired with a voluminous black ruffled tulle skirt for the ultimate in party-ready glamour.

Long and luxurious

Before checking the price, we anticipated this gorgeous floor-skimming dress to be a lot higher (, $100). The breezy, elegant design and beautifully draped fabric make this an understated show stopper perfect for a sophisticated end-of-year celebration.

Lovely lace

We love the sense of romance this delicate dress exudes (, $258). The lace top with a sweetheart neckline is paired with a jersey skirt (lined for extra volume) and brought together with an oversize sash that, when tied in a bow, creates a refined but ravishing look. Pair with black ankle booties to add some edge.

Shoulder exposure

While this black body-hugging mini-dress (, $159) might look simple at first glance, it's actually deceptively attention-grabbing. Sexy shoulder cut-outs are embellished with a smattering of crystals and rhinestones giving this little black dress some serious sass.

Pencil dress

If you don't go to the party with someone to kiss as the clock strikes midnight, you're sure to find one in this purple pencil dress with a low-cut neckline and open back designed to draw attention to whomever is lucky enough to be wearing it. If you've got it, flaunt it, and there's no better time for all eyes to be on you than at a New Year's party.
