24 Under-$50 Summer Dresses That Over-Deliver in Every Way

Have you ever taken a chance and ordered something so affordable that just seems too good to be true—only to later confirm upon arrival that, in fact, it is? Well, this isn’t that kind of story. The dresses you’re going to come across today, while attractively priced, are actually worthy of the hype we’re building around them, too. You can take my word for it or you can just see how countless girls on Instagram have been wearing them, as well as our very own editors. Or, of course, just look up.

Now that you’re on board, I’ll let you get right to it. Below you’ll find 24 summer-ready dresses, many of which can also be worn well into fall and all of which seriously over-deliver for their under-$50 price tags. I’m talking midis, minis, and maxis in a range of prints, patterns, silhouettes, and sizes—so there’s truly something for everyone.
