With the first rush of frantic holiday shopping well on its way, that only means two things. The holiday season is finally approaching and 2012 is quickly reaching its end. For some that means serene quality time with friends and family, but for others that means a series of parties, celebrations and more parties.
To simplify this tiring season, we’ve put together a few categories of adorable New Year’s Eve party dresses perfect for all of those parties you already RSVP to. And don’t worry, we understand how much money you’ll be spending this holiday season, so we’ll try our best to keep everything affordable.
1. The Classic Black:
You can never go wrong with a LBD. Always available, always sliming and always versatile! Spice it up with some hot pumps, accessories and teased hair! If you’re up for a little change this new year, take a risk and ditch the plain LBD for some black dresses mixed with a hint of cut-outs, sheer, leather, fringe, and whatever crazy design out there!
