And just like that, it's [almost] 2022. 

To celebrate a new (and hopefully better) year, it's time to get fancy. Whether your New Year's Eve plans include champagne showers or microwave popcorn, it's always fun to shimmy into something festive on Dec. 31. 

With that being said, in light of this month's newest restrictions due to the COVID-19 Omicron variant, it's understandable if you don't want to spend an arm and a leg on a party dress. 

Therefore, for New Year's Eve, birthdays, weddings and beyond, we've rounded up 19 stylish dresses for under $50, $100, and $200, plus five size-inclusive styles, that you can re-wear throughout the year. With prices starting at just $20, you won't feel as bad if you're in bed by 11.
