Fulfill your 2011 fashion resolutions early by wearing a jaw-dropping party dress in a fun silhouette this New Year's eve. Racked trendwatcher Donna Kim picks six of her favorite party dresses that are in stores now.

1. Adam folded-sequin silk organza dress, $1,495 at This dress is completely encrusted in dazzling sequins.

2. “Tessie” tulle one-shoulder party dress, $440 at Alice + Olivia: A different spin on a classic LBD, the fitted bodice flares out into a short tulle skirt.

3. Alexander Wang velvet off-shoulder dress, $1,380 at This green velvet statement dress would look best with minimal accessories—the built-in bustier figure-flatters any body type.

4. Isabel Marant “Gia” silk-blend brocade dress, $260 at This glimmering, ruched silver silk brocade dress has a serious '80s feel.

5. Jones and Jones “Wanda” dress, $150 at This plum sequined shift dress is the perfect party dress for a long night of dancing—plus it's totally washable!

6. Textured strapless dress, $33 at This olive body-hugging strapless dress is pleated and stretchy to show off your figure—the knee-length hem adds sexy sophistication.
