It's You—You're the Drama: Rich Dresses Under $200 That'll Leave No Question

Is it weird for an almost 30-year-old to reference TikTok in her headlines? Well, too bad. I might not have the social media prowess of an 18-year-old, but I do know a good quip when I hear one. You already know the viral sound that everyone is making TikToks to. Scarlet Envy from RuPaul's Drag Race says, "Is it me? Am I the drama? I don't think I'm the drama. Maybe I am." 

Well, when it comes to fashion, there's no harm in being the center of attention. I handpicked 38 dresses below that simply scream d-r-a-m-a thanks to their sultry silhouettes, bright colors, and eye-catching prints. Scroll down to shop my favorite statement dresses

Bright Colors

This is such a happy color. 

This is perfect for your next pool party. 

You can guarantee people will see you coming in this bright-yellow number from Zara. 

Pink velour? So early 2000s in the best way. 

H&M always knows how to do an affordable interpretation of the season's best trends. 

I shall call this "highlighter green," and it shall be mine.

Staud never fails to design covetable pieces like this color-block dress. 

The cool, swirly pattern makes this dress look way more expensive than it really is.

This H&M dress is so fun thanks to the ruffled neckline. 

Both the bright color and the cutout detail are so 2021. 

This cheerful tent dress is anything but boring. 

The minidress to end all minidresses.
