Amazon Prime Day is a flourishing digital moment of deeply discounted goods just begging to be shopped — and as it builds its stable of surprisingly shoppable in-house brands, must-have viral success stories, and Shopbop-curated assortment of chic contemporary dresses the site’s already-expansive selection of closet candy seems to know no bounds. But, if a spendy frock isn’t exactly what you (or your wallet) are in the market for right now, there’s still a sea of more affordable summer dresses to be unearthed within Amazon’s universe of stuff — especially with warm weather on the horizon.
Prime Day 2021 has arrived just as we’ve officially transitioned into summer — it’s time for our wardrobes to follow suit (or, in this case, dress). To prep for the warm-weather months ahead, we went digging for the best summer dresses on Amazon to add to cart along with all our other summer essentials (ahem, inflatable pools). And, in the spirit of keeping our finances in check, we limited our search to under-$100 garments only — distilling the bountiful findings down into a streamlined must-shop list of everything from pretty tiered maxis to printed minis.
Now, sit back and click through our roundup of Amazon’s 34 best (and most affordable) summer dresses, ahead.
At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff — and, while we do receive commission from Amazon, all of the goods linked to on our site are independently curated by our Most Wanted shopping team editors. All product details reflect the price and availability at the time of publication.
