If your New Years' resolution is to pinch a few more pennies in 2013, you may be tempted to splurge on a dress while you’re still in 2012 — but don’t even think about it. There are plenty of gorgeous New Year's Eve frocks for less than $100 that you can wear at holiday parties, dinners and the big countdown itself. Here are 10 sparkly dresses to ring in the new year.

Sweetheart sequin dress

Chic and sheer

Forever 21 caught our dress-hungry eyes again with this sleeveless sequined mesh number ($28). Mystery meets sparkle in a flawless way in this one—and it’s less than $30!

Sequin skater dress
