8 New Years Eve Dresses That Don’t Break the Bank

As much as I love Christmas, the drunk holidays are my favorite. And I know that Christmas is a drunk holiday for plenty of people, but I love the holidays that are basically designed for the sole purpose of getting trashed — like St. Paddy’s, Cinco de Drinko, and of course, New Years Eve. But on the other hand, with great drinking comes great pressure. Not only do you have to have fun, but everyone has to know you had fun because you have to post something on Instagram — which then begs the question, what in God’s green earth are you going to wear?

Honestly, you can get away with a lot on New Years Eve that you couldn’t the other 364 days of the year. New Years Eve is easily one of the most extra non-costume occasions there is. Sequins, feathers — it’s basically a Pride event. And being as extra as I am, of course I like to partake.

But all that extra can end up costing extra. And the thing about extra clothes is that it’s SUPER easy for them to look tacky if you aren’t careful. But I’m extra and cheap af, and in the process, have learned a thing or two. I got a dress that was originally around $200 for $10 — and it wasn’t one of those situations where it says it was marked down some ridiculous price but you have no idea how true that is. I worked at the store and saw the original price tags when we first got the shipment.

And I also got a super cute, durable pair of booties for $5 once. I’m legit, I promise.

As a side note, I left out some super cute dresses from Romwe and Tobi because I’ve never ordered from them and have read TERRIBLE reviews about their shipping, and obviously wouldn’t want any of my readers wasting money on a New Year’s Eve dress that won’t arrive until MLK Day.

All of these dresses are under $40, most are under $30 and if you order soon, they should all arrive before New Year’s!

But without further ado, here are some cute New Year’s Eve outfits that won’t break the bank:

$29.99 – I’m aware that this isn’t in fact a dress. It is cute, and it’s actually a lot more practical than a dress for how drunk most of you are getting.

And there’s a short version for those of you in warmer weather and the hoes that just never get cold.
