This Alexander Wang Draped Asymmetrical Dress is so very yin and yang, with its bare shoulders and high neckline, plus the juxtaposition of black and beige. ($1895 at <a href="http://www.ssense.com/women/product/alexander_wang/draped_asymmetrical_dress/29483" target"_blank">Ssense</a>)

The cut of the Rachel Rachel Roy The Excess Dress is so clean, it's almost prim, though the leopard print makes quite a statement.

It's not New Year's Eve without a smattering of sequins. Or go for the all-over approach in Gryphon's Sequin Party Dress. ($520 at <a href="https://www.arcadeboutique.com/scripts/ecommerce/?cmd=showitem&sku=DRCT6538&sid=arcade&manuf=" target"_blank">Arcade Boutique</a>)
