Where are the very best affordable dresses hiding on the internet right now? That was the very question I posed to my fellow Who What Wear editors. I wanted to know the secret finds priced under $200 that I might find in their shopping carts and will no doubt see at the office or on their Instagram feeds very soon. So, what hidden gems did they share with me?
Editor in Chief Kat Collings uncovered a $60 knit slip dress that she recommends styling with a sheer turtleneck—the perfect way to transition the piece into chillier fall temps. Market editor Nicole Akhtarzad and I must be on the same page because she sent over a mini faux-leather style that I recently ordered as well. And assistant editor Anna LaPlaca, who is all about the leopard trend, found an $89 midi-length style that she’ll be throwing on with ankle boots very soon. Scroll on to see and shop all of our picks, knowing that each of these affordable dresses rings in under $200.
