It’s almost time to start getting ready for holiday parties again and while we all want to look amazing, most of us don’t want to spend a small fortune on a cocktail dress. With the economy in such a rut, ladies are looking high and low for affordable party frocks. I have searched the internet for chic, fashionable dresses that can be purchased online and all for under $100 each (before shipping, of course.) Here are six of my favorites.
1. Aqua Strapless Satin Tube Dress
Bloomingdale’s retails this flirty, aquamarine-colored satin frock for $88. This strapless, belted dress has a pleated front and is made from a cotton/polyester/spandex blend. This dress would look good with ankle boots or classic mary jane heels. I’m not sure I like it with the boots shown in the photo, though.
2. INC International Concepts Sleeveless Sequin Stripe Dress
This fun, sparkly silk silver dress can be found at Macy’s for $99. It features a scoop neckline and falls just above the knee. I would pair this with a pair of t-strap heels or another elegant heel, as the model is wearing, in either black or silver if you could match them to the dress.
3. Ruby Rox One-Shoulder Satin Dress
The one-shouldered top is a big trend this season, and this orchid-colored dress shows off that trend with a wide strap over the right shoulder. The dress falls above the knee and has an empire waist with horizontal seaming. Originally retailing for $79 at Macy’s, this dress is now on sale for $54.99.
4. Maggie London Lace Bodice Mesh Dress
This classy, black and cream V-neck is available at Nordstrom for $98. The dress is form-fitting at the top but has an empire waist, which I love.
5. Sangria Mesh Dress
Dillard’s sells this empire waist, scooped neck dress for $80. This is a gorgeous shade of red and would look great with a simple black or matching red heel.
6. Sangria Strapless Dress
Also at Dillard’s, another great dress from Sangria for $80. This gorgeous jewel-toned purple dress is decorated with pleating, all-over stripes, and rosettes at the waistline.
There were plenty of other lovely dresses listed on the above websites that were on sale for under $100, but because the sizes were limited, I didn’t include them in this list. So if you don’t particularly like any of these, there are a ton of affordable options to suit your holiday party fashion needs.
