Between travel expenses, gift-giving, winter-wear, and all the other things one has to spend money on in the month of December, by the time it gets to party dresses, there's often less of a financial cushion than we'd like to spend on what is actually our favorite part of the holidays: the outfits. So even though in an ideal world a new designer dress for every event would be nice, if your situation is anything like ours, it might not be in the cards.
Luckily, however, this won’t stop us from wow-ing our fellow party-goers this season. Thanks to some of our favorite accessible brands, there are countless under-$100 dresses that are not only affordable but unbelievably stylish, too. To prove it, we’ve rounded up 16 of them for you to shop.
