Ah, dresses. Nothing else holds quite the same special place in our wardrobes, does it? An easy all-in-one outfit that can instantly make you feel put-together. Whether you’re a minimalist who favours monochrome slips and ribbed knit dresses or a maximalist who lives in bold, printed milkmaid dresses, there’s a place in every wardrobe for this pretty staple.
The best thing about dresses, though, just might be that you can bag yourself a really great one without having to dig too deep into your purse. Across the high street, second-hand and independent brands, you can find so many beautiful styles for under £100, which couldn’t be better for this time of year when your wardrobe (and your mindset) may feel like it needs a refresh after a long winter, but you’re still trying to stick to a budget at the beginning of the season.
Although it’s not the worst problem to have, there are almost too many great affordable options out there right now—trying to make an edit for this story took me hours. But I think I’ve whittled it down to the very best under-£100 styles I could find. To cut it down, I used the criteria of being expensive-looking (i.e., your friends will never believe you when you tell them your dress isn’t designer), easy to throw on and good for as many body shapes as possible, and hard-working—meaning you can wear these dresses not just at the weekends but for work and smarter occasions too. Just switch up your footwear from chunky sandals and spring boots to strappy sandals or heeled mules, and you’re off.
