It’s that time of year, when events seem to pop up left and right: graduations (and graduation parties), weddings, engagement dinners, and more. Every event calls for a different dress, or dressy outfit, and how do you ever choose? If you’re like me, that’s half the fun of going to a special event. Getting to choose and plan out an outfit is a challenge I’m always up for.
Chances are you’ll only wear a “special occasion” dress 2 maybe 3 times, so I like to find affordable yet stylish options. The dress above is a bit of a splurge for what I’d normally spend but it’s currently on sale for $55 and the quality is amazing. I love the asymmetrical hem and long sleeves that keep the dress somewhat modest and perfect for a wedding or any party, year round.
I’ve rounded up some of my favorite special occasion dresses in the widget below for any event you might have coming up! All are under $100, most under $50, and I hope you’ll love them as much as I do. There are a few two-piece sets and jumpsuits in the mix as well- I couldn’t resist.
