If, when you planned your spring shopping budget, you only planned on one or two dresses, shopping may leave you dismayed. The official uniform for spring is the dress, and they are everywhere, plentiful and adorable. With so many cute, easy-to-wear flattering styles to chose from, how can you pick just one? Stretch your dollars over several less expensive pieces, and no one will be the wiser. There are heaps of delightful dresses out there that won’t break the budget, so go ahead and fill your closet up with babydolls, jumpers, empire waists and more.
This one is more flirty and fun, for weekends or beachside try the “Sea Flower Dress.”
At under $30, Old Navy’s babydoll dresses are as cute in person as they are on the millions of commercials we’ve been seeing.
The juniors sections at your favorite department stores carry great pieces, often at lower prices than the women’s department.
This chic belted strapless dress is on sale at Macys.com for only $31.50.
A perfect blend of hippy and sexy, this embroidered sheer Yank dress is $109.
Nordstrom’s juniors department has great affordable dresses as well, like this lemony shirtdress with a 50’s feel, just $58.
