Deciding on a New Year’s Eve dress can be a very, very stressful task. It’s the one night of the year that every girl wants to look their absolute best. And as if that wasn’t stressful enough, it’s often the case that your friends are unable to come to a unanimous decision on where exactly you will be spending the night, which means you’re probably going to be left with next to no time to find something both suitable and appropriate. After that, there’s the task of finding something that hasn’t gone out of stock because of how late you’ve got round to it – either that or you’ll come across something that ticks all the boxes but won’t get delivered in time.
It’s indefinitely the whole style conundrum that’s most stressful, though. There’s LBDs, mini bodycons, extravagant maxis, lace insert numbers and cute fringed shifts to choose from. On top of that, there’s shoes, bags, hairstyles and jackets to consider, too. Exhausted already? To help you out, we’ve put together our edit of all the most stylish and affordable New Year’s Eve dresses on the high street now.
New Year’s Eve is the one time of year it’s acceptable to rock full-length glitz, and the high street have answered all of our prayers.
