From a sequinned sheath to full length lace - 15 dresses for New Year's Eve

We may not yet be past Christmas (quite) but if your thoughts are moving to what to wear on New Year’s Eve you could just be in luck.  Because of the warm winter weather so far the sales have started earlier than usual, and there are some excellent bargains out there, particularly in certain stores where you can find a good range of sizes, and particularly for evening dresses, from sequinned or lace cocktail dresses to full length gowns.

Frankly I think that trawling through the sales in store is a waste of time, particularly if you’re looking for a dress.  Yes you may fall in love with something, but then you find it’s not available in your size.  Online everything is shown as it is when at full price or on sale, none of that badly hung on the rail business.

Short dresses are more versatile, but a long evening dress, partiuclarly if it’s at a reduced price, can be well worth the money if you use it for other occasions.  Velvet is not so easy, but lace, sequins and jersey can be worn pretty much all the year round.

Right now the prices  have all started to go down - some to 50% off.  Yes they will most likely go further – after all the only way is down, but will your size still be there?  Most of these dresses have a good amount of stretch which makes them perfect for curvy figures and you should order your normal size. 

Bring on the bling, the sequins and the lace.  It’s nearly Christmas and there’s time to order for New Year’s Eve.
