15 Warm New Year’s Eve Dresses

by Madison Alcedo

With the holidays approaching, there's no doubt you'll be planning several party outfits. Even if you aren't ready to say goodbye to 2016, there's so many options for New Year's Eve dresses to shop before it's too late. And if you're looking for a dress to keep you warm, I've got you covered!

The challenge to winter parties is always about finding something stunning that won't leave you unbearably cold throughout the night. Of course you can always pair a sparkly cocktail dress with a fur coat or stole, but there are long-sleeve dress options to shop that will keep you warm while you party the night away. Even if you plan on keeping your night low key this year, you can still throw a party with your squad and dress up just for fun!

Even if it seems cliche, you can't go wrong with a sequin dress for New Year's Eve that would otherwise seem over-the-top any other time of the year. Don't be afraid to dazzle in a dramatic dress to celebrate the past year, especially a dress that will keep you warm during late-night cold temps.
