If you’re planning to ring in the New Year in style, then you need a fabulous dress.  What if you could find the perfect cocktail dress for a price that didn’t make you cringe?  Luckily, the miracle of the Interwebs can help you find a chic party dress at a great price.

In addition to finding a cost-conscious dress, you can jazz up an old dress with a sparkly belt or a fabulous brooch.  You can also mix in a pair of new shoes in a fun color to add flair to your LBD.  Or you can search YouTube for tips on how to do something new with your hair or makeup instead of spending money on a new dress.

Still want something new?  Try Rent the Runway.  For anywhere between $50 and $250, you can rent a designer dress for a fraction of the price.  The company has great customer service allowing you to choose multiple sizes in case one doesn’t fit, rent a second dress for $25 just in case, and offering you a rental fee refund if the dress doesn’t fit.  It’s a great way to get the perfect dress for your night out without spending a lot of money.
