6 New Year's Eve Dresses Under $115

These pretty—and modestly priced—party dresses will see you (stylishly) into 2016.


Target Sequin Sleeveless Dress


All-over embellishment and elegant details, like a sheer hem, make this dress look more expensive than it is. The wide-set neckline ensures the straps of the dress sit securely over your bra straps, and the sheath-like fit creates a flattering silhouette.

J. Crew Factory Silver-Dot Jacquard Dress


Delight in this jacquard frock's dotty print. The shimmery silver is festive enough for New Year's Eve soirees, but can easily be dressed down for everyday office-wear come January (think patent flats and a slim-cut blazer).

To buy: $60, factory.jcrew.com.

Modcloth V.I.Pleased Dress


There may be silver and gold decorations everywhere you look, but who says you’re limited to a metallic color palette for holiday dressing? Midnight blue looks sophisticated, and makes a great background for sparkly accessories.

To buy: $80, modcloth.com.

Chetta B Stripe Metallic Woven Fit & Flare Dress


Set aside any phobias of horizontal lines—a fit-and-flare shape and strategic striping (note how a dark band falls just at the waist’s slimmest point) won’t lead you astray. Glimmering gold adds a little sparkle, while black stripes make a bold, unexpected impression.
