10 dreamy New Year's Eve party dresses for every body and budget.

It’s PAAAaaaAAAAAaaaAAAAAaaaaRTY season!

If there's ever been a time for a still from the Old El Paso ad, it's now.

Christmas Day has come and gone, and we're on the straight and narrow to New Year's Eve and, shortly after that? The world's universal day of hangovers.

Because you've been so busy shopping for Chrissy presents and eating leftover ham, we've done the hard work of finding the perfect party dress for you. (Provided you've worked up the willpower to get out of your pyjamas, that is.)

Here are the frocks that'll rock your little cotton socks.

Lace Off Shoulder Dress - City Chic, $139.95
Size range: 14-24

I'm sorry, but you can't beat a LBD that has both A) lace and is B) off the shoulder. Nope, nope, nope. Don't try to fight me on this one - it simply cannot be beaten.

Pair this number with some strappy black heels and a bright lip and you are goooood to go.

The Sequin Mini Dress - Sportsgirl, $149.95
Size range: 6-16

I love this dress so much I just want to... eat it. Or bathe in it. Or cuddle it and tell it I'll never ever leave.

I dunno, I just really like it, okay?

Because this dress is so sparkly you might blind everyone you love while wearing it, play it low-key with the accessories. A nice fake tan and simple nude heel should do the job.

Night Moves Dress - Witchery, $199.95
Size range: 4-16

You'll look like a floaty unicorn dream princess in this lil' frock. If you're dying to let your shoulders freeeeeee in the wind, this one is for you. Pair with some chunky statement earrings and an up-do and viola!

La Vita Dress - Melrose Avenue, $45.00
Size range: 6-12

Those flared sleeeeeeeeeves! 

This off-shoulder dress is fitted to the body and will go perfectly with a chunky metallic clutch and a statement pair of heels.

I bet you'll be flapping your arms around having so much fun with all that sleevey fabric, too.
