30 Fancy Dresses That SLAY

If your closet consists of primarily jeans and casual wear, a black-tie invite in your mailbox (or inbox, rather) can instantly send you into hiding — right into the back of your closet. Sure, the formal affair will guarantee a good time (a champagne tower or two at least), but that's really only the case if you have something actually appropriate to wear. And, no, that doesn't mean your standard black party dress. To get you prepped and ready for any swanky party on your spring lineup, we pulled together 30 sophisticated frocks for every budget. Don't find yourself on a guest list right now? This will serve as a guide for when you do. Time to get fancy.
