Formal Gowns That Won’t Break The Bank

Cristin Cooper's guide to affordable formal gowns.

If you have a fancy wedding or a fundraiser this summer and are on the hunt for a gown then this post is for you! I’ve rounded up my favorite formal dresses currently in stock. Most of them are around the $100 – $200 range and all of them are under $300. My favorite retailers for formal dresses are Nordstrom, Revolve, Anthropologie and also Bloomingdales since they have great sales in the summer. If you are looking for a formal gown that’s even more affordable, then try out Nordstrom Rack, Lulus, Vici, Asos or Rent The Runway! I’ve also had good success with finding something at a department store and scoring it on Amazon at a discount. As for accessories, I generally keep things minimal and I ALWAYS wear these heels! They are surprisingly comfortable and on sale right now on Amazon!
