It doesn’t take millions of dollars to find flattering dresses that fit well and look great. If you’ve got $50 or less (and sometimes even way less), you can find a new dress.

We found the most flattering dresses around–all for under $50. Whether your style is body-con, mini dresses, girly florals, or breezy maxi dresses that go from beachwear to cocktail attire, we’ve got them.

Flattering Cheap Dresses

row a button front mini dress

Row A Button Front Mini Dress ($29.40)


Florals are always in for summer and this sweet floral mini dress, which has cap sleeves and a back keyhole, is perfect to kick back in during the day. It would look super cute paired with white tennis shoes for day wear, but can also easily be dressed up with platform sandals for a night out. 


H&M Maxi Dress ($12.99)


Keep dark, moody florals but lengthen the hem. This maxi dress is sleeveless, with narrow and adjustable shoulder straps. Wear it over a T-shirt, under a sweater, or all alone for a sweet summer vibe. 

topshop button down rib minidress

Topshop Button Down Rib Minidress ($30) 


This is the perfect easy dress to wear shopping or to grab a snack by the beach. It's casual chic, thanks to its button-down style, and allover ribbing provides a fun '90s throwback. The dress comes in six cool color options: navy, black, blue, cream, olive, and orange. 

lost ink fit & flare ribbed dress

Lost Ink Fit & Flare Ribbed Dress ($32.16) 


With yet another tribute to the '90s, this ribbed fit and flare dress hugs the waist and has a flounced skirt and lovely V-neck with a dainty tie closure. The fabric (a blend of viscose, polyester, and elastane) is stretchy and comfortable, but the cut and details fancy things up just enough.

Soprano Strapless Body-Con Dress ($29.40)


If you're looking for a dress that is slinky and sophisticated but also comfortable, this strapless bodycon dress hugs your body and curves but doesn't give away too much, thanks to a longer hem and slit. It comes in two colors: rust marsala and black. 

french connnection tim tim striped dress

French Connection Tim Tim Striped Dress ($49.99) 


There's something just a little French about this casual jersey striped midi dress, which features full sleeves and a side slit. The dress is cut close to the body so that, even though you're technically covered all over, you'll feel as sexy and confident as a French girl.

lost ink belted stripe shirtdress

Lost Ink Belted Stripe Shirtdress ($45.56)


This lightweight shirtdress with vertical stripes and ruffled cuffs has a removable belt that cinches your waist and is the perfect summer Friday dress to wear to the office. 

h&m sleeveless jersey dress

H&M Sleeveless Jersey Dress ($12.99)


This sleeveless jersey dress is short and fitted and comes in this cute jungle print, as well as solid blue or black and white patterned. It's a classic easy, breezy summer dress that you can just throw on before you go.

Lane Bryant Ruffle Off-The-Shoulder Maxi Dress ($41.97)


Polka dots are hot, and so is this off-the-shoulder maxi dress with flattering ruffles and a wrapped hem.
