Cheap Dresses Under 50 Dollars

In case you are wondering if there really are trendy but cheap dresses under 50 dollars, I’m here to tell you there absolutely are! Like many of you, I have come to not like using the word ‘cheap’ as much as I used to. I suddenly discovered that I preferred to use ‘affordable’, especially when it comes to the things I really like and things I’m recommending to others, like the following dresses.

However, I’ve also come to realize that the reason for the loss of love for ‘cheap’ is that we have somehow made it to equal low value. Honestly, if we really think about the word ‘cheap’ in itself, and not what it has been made out to be, it only denotes cost; nothing more.

But according to the dictionary, one of the synonyms for ‘affordable’ is actually ‘cheap’; which means they are both one and the same! So if ‘affordable’ is fine, I guess ‘cheap’ has to be fine too.

Okay enough of the English lesson and on to the ‘cheap’ dresses! 😉

The great thing about getting a dress under 50 dollars is this – for that amount of money, your outfit is almost complete, if not complete. And if you don’t have all the other items to complete the outfit, you could very well complete it for another 50 dollars if you are determined.

That would mean putting together a fully complete stylish outfit for around $100! Finding deals like that always makes me very, very, very happy.

The Dresses:
Spring is clearly upon us, and since we are now able to reduce the number of layers as well as the thickness of layers we have to wear, it’s only natural that we feel the need to style up our outfits a little bit more. These dresses are in line with what we all might be looking to wear for this season.

This High Neckline Sleeveless Midi Dress is a fun red dress from ModCloth. From the print to the details at the neckline to the pleats at the hem, this dress has a lot of ‘pretty’ going on that oozes spring in every way. It costs $33.97 and sizes are from XXS to 1X.

The next dress is a very versatile Spring Wrap Maxi dress from Jane for $29.99. It wears easily from day to night and from work to play. It comes in in 5 pretty colors and sizes are from 0 to 12.

I love this Relaxed Fit Pocket Dress for its casual look; but it can actually be dressed up or down. The length makes it wearable as a tunic with leggings or by itself, depending on how tall you are. Add a scarf or a chunky necklace and you could make it what you want for the occasion at hand. It comes in 9 colors and in sizes S to XL. The best part about it is that it’s on sale for $14.99!

Last but not least is a little black A-Line Dress with a gorgeous cape that can lay nicely over the shoulders or be left to fall delicately in the back. It makes a perfect dress for going out and standing out! The price is $37.98 and sizes are from XXS to 4X.

Complete Your Outfit:

Like I said earlier, the great thing about wearing a dress, or any one-piece for that matter, is that you only need a few more items and you are out the door. All you need are a nice pair of shoes, a handbag, and some jewelry and/or other accessories, and you have a complete outfit.

For the dresses above, you could add these knee-high Faux Suede Lace-Up Wedge Boots ($29.99), this adjustable strap Handbag ($19.99), any one of these Smoky Tone Necklaces ($12.99), and you are fully outfitted!

Knee-highs are not only perfect with any of these dresses but are also perfect for the slight chill that comes with early spring. The lace-up wedge boots are available in black and tan, and sizes go from a 6 to 13. The sizes include wide width and wide calf, which I know are sometimes hard to find. The handbag comes in 4 colors and you get free shipping.

Another option for shoes, which I personally prefer, are peep toe booties. These $24.99 Peep Toe Booties are not only super stylish,  they also keep your feet warm enough in the spring weather while you show off your cute manicure or new nail polish.

They also complement dresses or pants really well. They are available in 5 colors (the wine color is just gorgeous!) and go from sizes 7 to 11, depending on the color you choose. Sandals and heels are also obvious perfect fits for the dresses!

Final Words:

Clearly, it is possible to get ladies dresses cheap but still very cute. And that goes for every item of clothing – look hard enough and you will find anything at a price affordable for you and your budget without compromising style.

I am all about affordable fashionable clothing and outfits, and I know firsthand that we really don’t have to break the bank to look fashionable for any occasion.

Leave me a comment and let me know what you think about these dresses or how you ‘cheaply’ style outfits up for spring or for any occasion!

  1. Wow, I love these prices! I admit I do like to find clothes I can afford but not skimp on the looks or quality. I love that black dress with the cape and those black suede lace-up boots, that would go nicely together. Thanks for sharing these affordable clothes!

  2. I guess using the word cheap can also be about the quality of materials but affordable just talks about the price. Lol.
    I’m a huge fan of the midi dress! Very pretty and certainly affordable!

    1. That’s true Fen; that’s why I mentioned we tend to equate cheap to low value. But the dictionary apparently disagrees lol.
      Glad you liked the midi dress. It’s super cute!

  3. Love your post and the “cheap” prices on the clothes. I am always looking for a bargain when it comes to clothes. I just cannot bring myself to pay full price for them. I like how there are various sizes shown as well as the shoe sizes and widths. You did a great job! Keep up the good work.

    1. I’m the same way Marylou. I am always looking for some type of discount or savings. I think I love the item more if I get a great deal on it lol.
      And thank you!

  4. Interesting choices!
    I have shopped online for a while because there are cheaper and better choices. The problem I have in my country is that retailers put a high-profit margin in the price making it almost not affordable. Why would I pay a lot of money when I can order it myself for less?
    Btw I like the maxi dress, I love to feel comfortable wherever I go.
    Thanks a lot for sharing these nice affordable outfits with all of us 🙂

  5. Oh. My. Goodness. Thank you ever so much, Yemi, for introducing us to really ‘cheap’ i.e. affordable options. If only I had come across your website this time last year, when I ended up spending an absolute bomb for an outfit for our nephew’s wedding in June! I shall definitely keep an eye on your next articles, as I don’t want to miss out on opportunities. I am hoping that the suppliers you review can deliver overseas without charging too much?
    Thanks again 🙂

    1. Hi Guilia. The majority of them deliver overseas, though I don’t know what the exact fees are. But I shop at Boohoo which is UK based and the shipping charges and delivery time are just the same as within the States. I believe the companies usually have arrangements with shipping services that help keep the fees reasonable for us the consumers. Hope that helps! And thank you!

  6. Wow under $50… that’s amazing! I live in Canada… are the prices in USD? If so, it would be much more costly for me, but either way it is still a really amazing article with great products! I will definitely keep these in mind. I don’t think I look good in dresses by my husband adores me in them. Maybe I will ask his opinion on these. Thanks Yemmi!

    1. Thank you Darcy! Yes, the prices are in USD. So I guess the title for Canadians would be “Cheap Dresses Under $65.” lol
      And you probably look better than you think in dresses 🙂

  7. I do not also want to use the word “cheap” when it comes to the things that I like such as clothes or dresses because it tends to subtract quality or value, so yeah, I think the better word is “affordable.” I believe that you don’t have to spend a lot in order to get quality items.

    These dresses under $50 are very lovely and although I like them all, my favorites are the spring wrap maxi dress in pink and black colors and the high neckline mini-dress. I’m just wondering if the latter is available in other colors besides red.

    1. I’m glad you liked them Alice. But the high-neck dress is only available in the color shown. You may actually be able to find something similar elsewhere in the colors you like though. And if you do, please share! Thanks!

  8. I agree with you that buying affordable/ cheap goods, like clothes and accessories does not necessarily mean that you’re buying low-quality goods. The same clothes can be expensive or cheap, depending on a moment of their buying -if you buy them when having a regular price or on sales.

    So, there’s a “secret” (that I often practice): never buy brand new models, when they’re expensive. Buy the same clothes, shoes or boots you like, a few months later, i.e. at the end of a season, using the advantage of special offers.

    Your selected articles are great! Prices, too. Thanks!

  9. Hi Vesna and great savings tip! I actually do that with new technology items too. I let things like new phones and tablets get tested and reviewed by people first, wait for the hype to die down, price drop usually follows, and then I swoop in! Lol!
    I guess we can apply the savings tip to many areas. Thank you!
