We’ve said it many times before: we don’t think you need to spend big bucks in order to look good. Sure, having an unlimited fashion budget is great – who wouldn’t want that? But since most of us do have a limited budget, the goal is obviously to dress well for less.
Summer is a great season for wearing dresses. It’s really one of the easiest items to wear, and if you live in a hot, humid climate, you’ll appreciate the ease and simplicity of wearing a summer dress. Here are a few pretty, flirty, affordable summer dresses that we absolutely love:
Calvin Klein Jewel green jersey knotted v-neck dress, Bluefly
We love the color of this dress – so pretty! And also the easy, streamlined silhouette. Of course, the $89 price tag ain’t bad either.
Tahari ASL red textured woven ‘Elaine’ pearl detail sheath dress, Bluefly
An elegant, tailored dress, suitable for work or for a special occasion. The classic red color will flatter almost any skin tone, and at $93, you get a lot of bang for your buck with this dress!
Maggy London Chiffon Halter Dress, Nordstrom
It’s the ultimate party dress – pretty, sexy and flirty. We love the dark purple shade, and we appreciate the affordable $98 price tag.
Donna Ricco Seamed Stretch Twill Sheath Dress, Nordstrom
A very lovely everyday dress, that can also be dressed up for work. Price: $98.
Aqua Tube Tiered Bottom Jersey Dress, Bloomingdales
OK, not everyone can pull off a tube top. But if you belong to those who do, this dress is so, so cute! This perfect everyday dress is priced at $68 and can be machine-washed. How cool is that?
Three Dots Combed Cotton Shift Dress, Bloomingdales
We adore the simplicity of this dress. Just like all Three Dots designs, despite being a very basic piece, its high quality lends it a special appeal. Price: $75.
SEE? You don’t have to sacrifice style just because you have a budget and can’t spend unlimited amounts on fashion. Happy shopping!
