18 Non-Cliché Sequin Dresses to Wear on New Year's

Okay, we get it. Wearing sequin dresses for New Year’s—or the holiday party season, for that matter—is about as groundbreaking as donning florals for fall. But hear us out: There’s a reason the sequin dress comes back for every New Year’s Eve. It’s become a seasonal classic. That said, if you’re in the mood to wear the sparkling staple this New Year’s, we know you won’t want to feel like you’re wearing the same party dress as every other girl in the room. Not to worry.

From glitzy gowns to chic, long-sleeve minis, we’ve rounded up the coolest sequin dresses that won’t feel overdone down below.
