Yes, we're totally lusting after all the designs strutting down the runways at New York Fashion Week. But let's be realistic — when it comes to our actual closets, they're definitely more Zara and Topshop, less rag & bone and Alexander Wang. So, when it comes to affordability, we go gaga for cheap fashions that look anything but.
With college classes in full swing and summer Fridays a thing of the past, we'll indulge in any opportunity that allows us to frequent our favorite coffee shop. From friend dates to date dates, we've sourced 11 so-chic under-$100 dresses perfect for a caffeine-fueled engagement. From a tulle midi-dress to a patchwork printed smock, your friends will just think you splurged. (Don't worry, your secret is safe with us.) Click through to shop!
