By now, you’re ready to wave goodbye to your drawer of constricting pants and leggings — so much so that you’ve made a comprehensive shopping spreadsheet that includes all of your favorite sundresses and skin-baring frocks from around the web. But before you click “sort” on the price column and order it “low to high”, read on. We’ve done all of the budgeting legwork for you, and you’ll be happy to know that there’s plenty of prettiness to be found.
Dressing your best for the sunny seasons doesn’t have to mean parting with your hard-earned cash on that dreamy (but pricy) poplin puff-sleeved gown. For most of us, that designer-made, upper-hundreds frock is more #budgetgoals than reality right now, so we dug deep and found some lovely ones that will leave room on the balance sheet for the Airbnb deposit and/or chipping in for that case of rosé. Ahead, find the season’s best dresses that look like a million bucks, but actually ring in under $125.
