3 Summer Dresses Under $100

I love a good designer piece just as much as the next girl, but not all fashion has to break the bank! This past week, I gave myself a challenge. I wanted to find some amazing summer dresses UNDER $100. And not just any dresses- I wanted to find dresses that are affordable, of great quality, look chic AND ones that you can be worn for the rest of the season. With a little help from the CINC team, I found three amazing summer dresses all under a hundred bucks each! Keep scrolling to find out what I picked and to discover some more of my “Under $100 Picks!”

Dress: J.O.A | Sunglasses: Reve (Similar Here

If you’re the girl who loves a good trend when you see one, then this dress is perfect for you! The off the shoulder detail is super flattering, the print is super cute and summery, and the sundress is equal parts fun and flirty. I’ll be real with you though.  This dress is on the shorter side for me. I’m 5’9″ so if you’re a little on the taller side, this dress might not be for you! See the dress here! (But check out this cute similar option in a midi-length here!)

Dress: Wayf | Sunnies: State (Similar Here) | Heels: Francesco Russo (Similar Here)

How chic is this silk dress? It basically looks like a $300 luxury dress!  When I stumbled upon it, I was shocked to see the price tag because I totally thought it would be way more expensive. The quality is really amazing for the price but the only downside is that it can wrinkle pretty easily. It’s perfect for the weekend or out for date night with a pair of sleek heels. It even works great for the day time with a pair of cute sandals (you knowwww how much we love to brunch in LA). Basically, you’ll be wearing this dress all summer long. Shop the dress here!

Dress: After Market | Heels: Francesco Russo (Similar Here)| Hat: Lack of Color

If you only get one dress, let it be this one. It’s the perfect, basic sundress. It’s simple, chic and perfect to throw on for pretty much anything.  Going to the farmer’s market?  Coffee?  Brunch?  Lunch date? Running errands? With a change of accessories, you can pretty much wear this dress anywhere! I love the one-shoulder detail, and how it looks like a re-worked men’s button down! Check the dress out here!

So there you have it! Summer dresses under $100 bucks. Which one was your favorite? Let me know down below and have a great weekend!

    LOVE the white slip and the stripey sundress 💙 For my part, I have to say my favorite summer dress turned out to be a recent purchase from Zara ( I didn’t anticipate how much I’d love it until I wore it last week while in Miami and could only say “WOW” 😂

  • Karen says:

    The white silk dress doesn’t look sheer and it does look like an expensive piece! Nice find! Were you wearing a S or XS? Don’t see there is an XS at all.

  • Vanessa Moore says:

    I love the subtle paint job you added to the photos! Reminds be of human movies that had cartoons in them lol very creative!

  • Katie says:

    LOL what’s going on with your shoulder in the top image? Photoshop mistake?

    • Katie, it’s not a mistake. It’s artistic design of the photo. If you look at all of the photos, you’ll see that some have it and some don’t. To make the photos fun and interesting. 😊

  • Mina says:

    Awesome picks, I love the pic where you used the sunglass lens! Really cool shoot.

  • Simi says:

    I love all three picks! But maybe the first one because of the print..the second caue it´s romantic white and long…
