February 14 is a money pit. Regardless of how you spend the holiday (Dinner? Movies? Drinks? Dancing? Partner yoga? Takeout?), you're going to be spending on the holiday. And lest you forget, you'll need an outfit to wear, too. While you could just recycle that old red mini you’ve worn for five years straight, Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to dress to impress — whether you're fancying up for your partner or hosting a movie marathon with your three best friends.

But pulling out a jaw-dropping look doesn’t necessarily mean pulling out a wad of cash. To prove it's easy to look great without draining your piggy bank, we rounded up a selection of chic dresses that each ring in under $150. Click through now to find the one that will make your V-Day that much sweeter.
