When seasons change and you find yourself itching for a new frock or two, you can go one of a few routes: log onto that aspirational designer website and start compiling your wish list, crossing your fingers that the objects of your sartorial lust will stick around until sale season; or turn to your closet and see what you can repurpose to satisfy your urge for newness. You can also consult one of the usual suspects for inexpensive fashion — the delightful time-suck that is an Amazon fashion rabbit hole.
Amazon has become a heavy hitter in the world of affordable and compliment-generating dresses, offering up a slew of options in the easy-spending category. A deep dive reveals a trove of options — everything from brands you know and love (BCBG, ASTR the Label) to their customer feedback-driven in-house creations (labels Lark & Ro, Daily Ritual) to emerging, trend-forward brands that are poised to create the next viral garment. Click through to see the 29 best dresses that we could find on the site; and if we missed one, let us know in the comments — we’re always hot on the trail of the next hit.
