Among all the different types of dresses you could wear for New Year’s Eve, there’s one that will always—and we mean always—look good: a black dress. Look, we have nothing against wearing vibrant, colorful dresses as you ring in the New Year, but if you find yourself to be a minimalist to your core or you’re in a pinch to find a chic dress for the night, you can’t go wrong with a quality LBD.
Whether you’re looking for simple but classic silk slip dress or are planning to take the opportunity to go full-on festive with sequins or velvet, this is one dress trend we’ll never get tired of. Style these black dresses with a faux-fur coat if it’s freezing out, or wear a cool pair of combat boots to toughen up your party look. The choice is yours. Now, scroll down to shop the best NYE-appropriate black dresses to wear as you welcome 2019 with panache.
The crystal straps make this perfect for a party.
When the party's over, wear these for your next formal occasion.
