If there were ever a time to bust out the sequins and lurex, it's obviously the most festive night of the year—New Year's Eve. But it's a fact of life that with the busy holiday season leading up to it, what to wear on December 31 can come as a bit of an afterthought. This year, we're proposing being proactive and shopping for your party dress now to avoid the dreaded last-minute outfit scramble (which can oftentimes lead to reluctantly putting on the same dress you wore last year).
While recently perusing the wares from Swedish fast-fashion site & Other Stories, we noticed that the wallet-friendly retailer has a vast array of festive dresses that are actually very cool and won't break the bank—music to every fashion girl's ears. After carefully eyeing every dress, we narrowed it down to eight that are perfect for ringing in 2017.
