You'd Never Guess These Dresses Cost Less Than $50

Let's just get this out of the way: Fast fashion is tricky. While we're all about investing in high-quality staples and the occasional investment piece, we know it's not always a reality. When it comes to building a well-rounded wardrobe, it's all about shopping mindfully and knowing when to save and when to splurge.

We also know summer gets crazy — your Google calendar is filled to the brim with work and social obligations. Weddings, vacations, weekend trips, and happy hours all seem to pile up, so the first question on all of our minds is, "What on earth am I going to wear this time?" That's when wallet-friendly dress comes in handy. Those last minute plans sometimes just call for a quick, easy, and inexpensive outfit — but you never want to look cheap.

With that in mind, we rounded up the best under-$50 dresses to get you through all of summer's socializing without sacrificing your bank account. The best part is, they look so much more expensive that people will be asking you, "Who made your dress?"
