Look at your inbox. How many holiday parties have you RSVP’d to? Probably a few more than you have dresses to wear. And, you know what that typically means: another paycheck and one more trip to the mall. But, since we don’t all have that superstar salary that allows us to jaunt off to a fancy department store for each and every frock, we’ve rounded up 25 dresses (for every holiday-party occasion) that you can actually afford. Meaning: Forget about buyer’s remorse, and prepare for a much happier bank statement.
And, no, just because these beauties are affordable doesn’t mean they look cheap. You won't find any ill-fitting or way-too-short dresses here. So, whether it's a sparkly stunner you seek or something more reserved, the under-$50 numbers ahead will keep you sophisticated, stylish, and, most importantly, festive all the way through New Year’s.
