You’ve committed to some fancy plans, but payday was years ago and you want something new to wear? We have dresses for this exact predicament. Nice enough for a boujee soiree, but not so expensive that your every meal is pesto pasta ’til the end of the month. Here’s our pick of the best dresses 50 quid can get you.
LUXE GOOD ON YOU – £30
Something about satin that just feels all decadent and luxurious. So if you’re going for that Ferrero-Rocher-ad kind of look, this satin midi in champagne will do the trick. The fact it’s only £30 is a generous bonus!
2. Ray of sunshine – £48
As we’ve already established, satin has that £££ effect, but it doesn’t have to affect your bank balance in the same way. We’re loving this yellow halterneck dress with an asymmetric frill hem. It’s basically dancing girl emoji, but in yellow.
3. Maxi dress, mini budget – £48
Cancel your little black dress – this summer is all about the LWD. Laid-back regal might sound like a bit of an oxymoron, but it’s just how we feel when we wear this pleated white maxi. Especially when paired with layered gold necklaces and a wooden clutch.
4. Orange Appeal – £38
Orange is having a bit of a moment, and we’re particularly enamoured with this citrus cami dress in floral print. And, if you have more then one wedding this summer, well it also comes in sky blue and navy.
5. Boujee in beige – £45
The natural trend shows no sign of slowing down, which works out well for us, because all we want to do is wear this dress for most of forever.
