People waste no time when it comes to hosting holiday parties. It seems the second Thanksgiving is over (24 hours!), it’s party time. Between family parties, office get-t0gethers, and celebratory dinners, your calendar is most likely filled with holiday to-dos. With that in mind, I’m thinking party prep: what dresses to wear. The key is having options. The good news is that there are plenty of festive frocks well under $200.

With all the holiday sales happening right now (don’t miss this one), you can score on some really great things. My go-to spot when I’m looking for a dress on a budget is The Outnet. I almost always manage to scoop up some fantastic things (check out this sparkly number) for a deal. Other ideas: this frilly LBD (with our without tights) and this feathered frock – both are under $100. If you’re looking for red (’tis the season!), check out this one, this one, and this one. I’m pretty pumped that I snatched this Vince dress in red. On sale! (I’m also really loving this red jumpsuit for an alternative to the dress.)
