Once the weather heats up, I am such a dress person. I love wearing fun and easy dresses any chance I get, whether it be a cotton coverup dress to run errands or to work at Lilly Pulitzer, or if I'm dressing up for dinner or a fun event. Today's post is a really exciting one, because I'm rounding up my 40 favorite dresses for Spring and Summer under $50. Some may say, "$50! That's so expensive!". Truth be told, you aren't going to find many stellar dresses with a $15-$20 budget. It's either going to be see through, the pattern will be incorrectly sewn, or the shipping will take weeks on end to get to you! With a $50 budget, you can find an affordable, durable, and chic dress that is bound to last you all springs and summers for years to come.
Out of the forty below, my top five are 3, 14, 34, 35, and 38. Obviously my love for blue and white isn't excluded in this post. I love how 38 is just a basic button up poplin dress, just screaming for accessories. I would love to style a great pair of shoes and a statement earring or pullover sweater with that dress! I also love how absolutely perfect the french stripe is on dress 35. Seriously, I can't get over a royal blue and crisp white shirt dress. The silhouette reminds me of my white Tuckernuck dress (which is included below!🙌🏻). The drop waist is so flattering and makes my long legs, look even longer. Who doesn't love looking like a giraffe, amirite?
I included a few classic silhouettes from sites like SugarLips, J. Crew, and Old Navy but I also added a few of my favorite trendier dresses from sites like SheInside, Tobi, and Nordstrom. Everything I shared below would look incredible styled with a pair of sandals, Birkenstocks or espadrilles. For the fancier dresses, I would style them with an espadrille wedge for all day comfort and easy walking. As always, every single dress is linked below and is below $50!
