Hey, everyone! Formal season is UPON US! My sorority’s formal is coming up next Thursday. I planned my outfit far in advance, but many of my sisters have expressed concern about being able to find a dress last minute, which is the inspiration for this post. I have compiled a list of dresses that meet the following criteria:
- They are all under $50*
- They all have a 4 out of 5 star rating or higher
- They’re all available on Amazon Prime, meaning they will arrive if you order within two days of your event!
*depending on size, Amazon is weird and charges different amounts of money for different sizes ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I know you may be thinking: Amazon Prime for clothes???? Amazon Prime comes in clutch for many aspects of our lives, so fashion is no exception. They have some pretty fashionable last minute solutions. So get out there, look great, and have fun!
1. Solid fit and flare dress
A dress in a simple cut but a bold color will surely turn heads. The fit and flare style is comfortable and confident. This dress would look great with a pair of nude heels, and is also work appropriate!
2. Long sleeve dress with fringe
Fringe is still a hot-ticket item, so for this formal season, why not wear a classic LBD with a trendy take? Take this look to the next level by wearing a statement lip color.
3. Popover dress
Perhaps the most ~formal-esque~ dress on this list, this cute mini dress is fun and flirty. The chain in the back is a noteworthy detail. This dress is also available in green and black.
4. Sleeveless printed dress
I’m currently obsessed with black and white prints, so I’d rock this dress in a heartbeat. While it may look more like a work/day dress than a club one, I’d style it with a leather jacket and platform heels for a true day-to-night transformation.
5. Printed fit and flare dress
This is my personal favorite on this list. The colors and the print are stunning! I’m normally not a fan of belts, but the skinny belt adds a “barely there” way to enhance your waistline. This dress is sure to turn heads.
6. Lace trapeze dress
Red and lace, what’s not to like! This is also the most affordable dress on this list. The drop skirt takes this dress from ordinary shift to the next level. The model is shown wearing nude heels, but black heels would be an equally good choice.
Love these dresses? Was this post helpful? I’ve been thinking of writing a last minute accessory guide as a sequel to this post. Let me know what you think in the comments!
