Adrianna Papell Sequined One-Shoulder Sheath Dress


The more we look at this dress, the more we love it! The one-shoulder silhouette and overlay add a dose of drama. It's an unexpected twist to the sequin style, and it totally works. The black-and-gold color combination is the perfect palette for New Year's Eve. Twist your hair into a topknot, work a red lip, and keep it minimal on the accessories so the dress can do the talking.
