Last Chance To Score The Best Summer Dresses For (Way) Under $100 On Prime Day

·4 min read

Amazon Prime Day is a flourishing digital moment of deeply discounted goods begging to be shopped. And as it builds its stable of surprisingly shoppable in-house brands, must-have viral success stories, and chic dresses curated by Shopbop, the site’s already-expansive selection of closet candy seems to know no bounds. But, if a spendy frock isn’t exactly what you (or your wallet) are in the market for right now, there’s still a sea of more affordable summer dresses to be unearthed within Amazon’s universe of stuff.

Prime Day 2022 is ending today, which mean it's also the closing call for all the best summer dress deals on Amazon. Since we’re in the middle of summer, it’s time for our wardrobe lineup to be at its peak. To update our carousel of warm-weather attire, we went digging for the breeziest frocks to add to the cart along with all our other summer essentials (ahem, inflatable pools). And, in the spirit of keeping our finances in check, we limited our search to under-$100 garments only — distilling the bountiful findings into a streamlined must-shop list of everything from pretty tiered maxis to printed minis to laid-back shirt dresses

Now, sit back and click through our roundup of Amazon’s 25 best (and most affordable) summer dresses, ahead.

At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff — and, while we do receive commission from Amazon, all of the goods linked to on our site are independently curated by our Most Wanted shopping team editors. All product details reflect the price and availability at the time of publication.
