Cheap Little Black Dresses

by MomGrind

Yes, you can find cheap little black dresses that are affordable, yet flattering. Scroll down for my recommendations.

It’s cliché but it’s true: the little black dress works for almost anything, including the office (paired with a jacket), a cocktail party or a night out on the town.

You can dress it up or down with the right accessories (funky shoes and costume jewelry for a younger, more casual look; pumps and conservative jewelry for a more elegant look).

If it’s cold, you can throw a shawl over it. It’s an easy, effortless way to make sure you are never over or under-dressed.

A great little black dress doesn’t have to cost a fortune. In fact, I prefer cheap little black dresses. It’s fairly easy to look great if you pay a fortune. The trick is to look fabulous even though you spent very little. There’s an art to dressing well on a budget.

The three little black dresses shown below are gorgeous, timeless and very reasonably priced.

Isaac Mizrahi for Target Embroidered Lace Dress ($20, hand wash, sizes small to xx-large) is classic, feminine, glamorous and very flattering for any figure. It’s fitted and has wide straps and cross-over V-neck that tastefully play up the bust.

Newport News’ Shape Control Dress ($59, hand wash) has a built-in power-mesh panty that controls the tummy and lifts the rear, and a shelf bra that supports the bust.

This Flutter Sleeve Dress ($49.50) is perfect for the office when paired with a simple necklace and a pair of black pumps. At night, add several long necklaces and platform shoes or knee-high boots for a fresh, modern look. The full (but not too full) skirt and plunging neckline draw attention to the bust and are very forgiving if you have curvy thighs.

An easy alternative to the little black dress is a black skirt.

A skirt is somewhat more versatile than a dress because you can change the look by pairing it with different tops. A blouse, or a silk sleeveless top with a jacket for the office; a fitted v-neck top with a pendant necklace for going out. A-line skirts are flattering to most figures. Pencil skirts look best on thin women.
