You never know when you’re going to need a good dress. Whether it’s a last-minute date, an event you totally forgot about, a big meeting at work, or just a day you feel like kicking your look up a notch, it helps to have them on hand so you’re not left scrambling or worse—empty-handed. That’s why when I come across a dress I like on the cheap, I buy it with or without somewhere to wear it because as they say, if you build it, they will come. So, if reading this is putting you in a slight panic over your own inventory (or lack thereof), you can breathe easy: Today I’ve found not just a handful of affordable dresses to stock up on, but a whopping 33 of them. From mini to midi and simple to statement, keep scrolling to see what made the cut (and shop them).
