The One Thing No One Will Be Wearing This NYE

There are certain key items that seem to crop up at every New Year's Eve shindig year after year. You know what we're talking about—statement tops, metallic accessories, sparkly accents, and so on. While there's certainly nothing wrong with any of these items (hey, we'll totally be wearing many of these!), there are certain pieces that will be more forward than others this NYE.

When it comes to dresses, specifically, there's actually one style that used to be popular among the cool-girl set but most likely won't be anymore: body-con dresses. Sure, it's totally okay to wear one if you have an iteration you love, but with the movement toward looser, boxier silhouettes this year, super-tight frocks just aren't as forward as other styles.

Keep scrolling to check out celebs in stylish dresses for NYE inspiration. Plus, go a bit further to shop frocks that will be so IN this holiday season. We promise there's something for everybody to ring in the New Year in style.
