Ten Great New Year’s Eve Dresses for Under $50

Picking an outfit for New Year’s Eve can sometimes be a panic-inducing event that leaves you groggily vowing on the first morn of each new year never to wait to the last minute again! Choices abound, but then again, more often than not, we’re spoiled for choice and left with a weird kind of paralysis that leaves us confused, overspent or (gasp!) dress-less.

Well, the holidays came early this year (you’re welcome!) and we have compiled our list of ten fabulous dresses for NYE inspired by some of our favorite (and fashionable!) celebs, giving you plenty of time to make your picks! And, each and every one rings up at under $50! Will it be a boldly hued body-con dress? Or a sassy striped number? Or, wait, what is it they sing about “bringing him silver and gold”…?
