We feel your pain when it comes to finding the perfect dress at a reasonable price.  Here’s five under $100 dresses that you won’t want to miss!

1. The Classic Shift Dress

Classic Shift Dress

Shift dresses are one of the most versatile dress styles out there, and every woman should have at least one in her closet.  Shift dresses skim the body, and are flattering without being overly revealing.  For the office, choose a more conservative shift dress that is knee length or just above the knee.  This under $100 dress style is an excellent day to night choice because you can pair it with subtle accessories and flats for day, and then dress it up with a heel and statement jewelry in the evening.  The more conservative line of the shift dress is perfect for more formal settings where very fitted dresses would be inappropriate.

4. The Cutout Dress

The cutout dress is a current trend, and it’s a fun and flirty party option.  Cutout dresses come in many styles, whether cut out in the midriff or the back, and you can go more or less revealing based on your comfort level.  This is a great way to show off a little bit of skin without going overboard, and a more fashion-forward choice than many more traditional party styles.  When buying a cutout dress, avoid styles that are extremely short or low cut to maintain the elegance of the dress.

5. The Backless Dress

Everyone wants to occasionally wear something a bit more daring, and backless dresses are a great way to strike the balance between classy and sexy.  Similar to a cutout dress, they are a tasteful under $100 dress option to show skin and take a fashion risk.  Often, backless dresses will have most of their design on the back, with a more simple front that allows for more dramatic accessory choices like a statement necklace and or chandelier earrings.  When purchasing a backless dress, make sure to also pick up an adhesive backless bra for a flawless look.
