The holiday season is quickly approaching. If you think you’ll be attending any holiday parties, I don’t want you to stress about finding the perfect dress without spending a fortune. I searched high and low and did the homework for you. Here are ten extraordinary cocktail dresses, under $50. 

I know I’ll have at least one holiday party to attend. Scott’s work party. I just hope I can decide amongst these ten, because they are all so unique and beautiful!

Cocktail Dresses Under $50

1.) Lovely Day Floral Velvet Dress – $29.00  

I am crazy about this dress. I love the open back and the pencil skirt length. It has just the right amount of edginess and class, combined. Pair this with a nice faux fur coat, a black trench, or an elegant cape.

2. Ruffle Strappless Dress – $24.50

This is the perfect blend of Breakfast at Tiffany’s and The Devil Wears Prada. I can see this paired with black pumps, onyx-CZ-drop earrings, and a matching evening bag. 

3) Vintage 1950’s Halter by Grace Karin – $29.99

Ok, you know I need to include a little vintage and super-stand-out look for those who don’t mind the extra attention. This dress looks pretty incredible on curvy women, as it creates a slim-looking waistline. And, it’s fun. I wouldn’t wear this to my husband’s holiday work party, but I would consider wearing this if I hosted a holiday party at The House on High Street. Can you see it??

4) Halter Midi Dress by Trixxi – $32.98

This halter dress is just the right balance of sophisticated elegance and feminine flintiness. I love the semi-sheer lace bodice, the form fitted jersey skirt, and cross-halter neckline. This is probably one of my favorites amongst this list. 


5) Lace Sheath Dress in Sterling Blue – $49.00

Aside from absolutely loving the color of this dress (definitely a stand-out factor), I love the delicate fluttery sleeves, the most. It’s super feminine and delicate, yet something about this dress exudes confidence and intelligence. Definitely recommend a nude-colored shoe with this and sterling-CZ accessories. Just wow. 

6) Open Back Body-Con Dress – $45.00

Uh-oh. Another backless dress. Not many of us can pull this off. But, if you can, you should definitely be wearing this dress at your next holiday party! Pair with nude colored heels and those Baublebar statement earrings I showed you from my recent post!

These earrings!

7) Vintage Floral Lace Net 3/4 Sleeve – $34.99

Don’t be surprised, but most of my favorite dresses can be found on Amazon. This one, along with so many others, are not only unique and very-highly rated, but you just can’t beat the price! (Trust me. I looked.) Amazon has the best selection of cocktail dresses, for way under $50, right now. I love how this one blends elegance with a modest, yet flirty style. I can see this with some bold red lipstick. And, if you have curves (as I do), this one is bound to flatter them. 

8) Vintage Mermaid Pencil Dress – $29.99

Please, get a close up of the lace detail on this dress! With the satin waist band and flared mermaid ruffle. I love the dark midnight blue color. And, what I really appreciate about lace 3/4 sleeves is that it elongates the arms and flatters them, as well. It’s modest, yet ultra feminine. I love this one! 

9) Vintage Long Sleeve Lace Bodycon Dress – $27.99

I like a lot of things about this dress. The color. The lace detail. The sleeves. The ruffle trim across the bottom. I feel this would look best on a thinner frame. It’s very elegant, so I wouldn’t go overboard with statement accessories. 

10) Women’s Retro Sleeveless Pencil Dress – $29.99

This dress has over 1,200 positive reviews on…you guessed it, Amazon. (I should probably mention that’s why I like shopping from Amazon. You get a great idea of what other consumers think, and since there are free returns, you have NOTHING to lose! I think you need to get a close up of the detail on this dress. It’s simple, but so classy and elegant. It comes in TEN colors, and from the photos you will see in the customer review section, it looks very flattering on fuller-sized women. I think this dress is a winner.

Ok. There you have it. Ten beautiful, stand-out dresses to make a statement at your next holiday party! With prices like these, you don’t have to worry about wearing the same thing to more than one event! I hope you liked this post. Let me know which dress is your favorite!
