Your plans for that night are probably all sorted out with just a few minor details left to lock down. And even though you're guaranteed to have a blast no matter what you're getting up to on New Year's Eve, we all know that the best fun is getting ready knowing that your outfit is an absolute showstopper. So, whether you're ringing 2019 in at a black tie event or a more chilled out vibe, we've picked out five dresses you can do the most in.
Leopard print twist dress
There is that thing about leopard print that makes all the points that need to be made about your look: it's decidedly sultry, sophisticated and a statement classic that needs the attitude to match. This satin twist dress is the perfect pick if you want to instantly declare what your style is about while still having enough room to move around and dance. Depending on your mood and the venue, all you'll to pair it with are fresh sneakers or chic stilettos.
Pink or printed dress
Bring in a refreshing pop of colour to a party usually dominated by dark tones and sparkles. Not that one is better than the other, but just to prove that there are many ways to shine.
The bold red dress
A red dress finished with frills says you're all about serving a full dose of that OTT drama. And you know what? There isn't a more fitting occasion for you to come through with all that smoke. Complete the look with glittery stilettos and a standout makeup look.
High slit dress
A party dress worthy of glamorous champagne-fuelled evening, with a criss cross back and high slit, this printed slip can be dressed in casual glam or styled all the way up depending on your situation.
Cut-out shift dress
Perfect for a low key evening agenda like a dinner party or a soirée on a yacht, this elegant number combines glamour, sophistication with a touch of edginess.
