When it comes to curating our closets, we talk a lot about investment pieces and budgeting for a well-rounded wardrobe. While this is effective in the long-run, the changing seasons and consistent wave of trends add a temptation to buy, buy, buy. Luckily, spring's most stylish dresses are (surprisingly) accessible — seriously, you don't have to spend more than $150 to get your hands on some of the season's coolest pieces.
For Princess Eugenie ’s royal wedding at Windsor Castle on Friday, fall fashion was in full bloom. The royal family attended wearing stunning monochromatic looks in rich jewel tones like ruby, sapphire, and emerald. Kate Middleton glowed in a deep raspberry A-line dress by Alexander McQueen with a matching ruby fascinator. The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle , was all smiles with Prince Harry, whom she married at the same altar just five months ago. For this occasion, she opted to wear a modest midnight blue coat and dress by Givenchy , the same label behind her wedding dress. Princess Eugenie’s sister, Princess Beatrice , wore blue as well — a two-piece sapphire-colored set by Ralph & Russo — the designer duo behind Markle’s engagement dress . Beatrice, who is typically known to wear extravagant fascinators , decided to wear a more minimalistic deep purple headband on the special day. The simple accessory complemented her classic, tailored look. The mother of the bride, Sarah Ferguson , aka Fergie, wore a gorgeous silk emerald wrap dress that featured a small train by her go-to designer, Emma Louise. She designed the dress Fergie wore at Meghan and Harry’s wedding too. Pippa Middleton , who is reportedly days away from giving birth , shined in her chic maternity look, wearing a long-sleeved emerald dress by Emilia Wickstead . From ruby red to sapphire blue to emerald green, the fall season’s color palette is crystal clear: It’s all about jewel tones. Picture yourself wearing a lavish ruby-colored A-line dress for Thanksgiving, an elegant emerald dress like Pippa’s or Fergie’s for Christmas, or a blue sapphire dress at your next office holiday cocktail party.

On Jan. 9, 2017, Donald Trump bragged to the New York Times about the “unbelievable, perhaps record-setting turnout” he fully expected at his upcoming presidential inauguration ceremony on Jan. 20. It turns out that not only was there no dress shortage in D.C. before the inauguration, according to an investigation done by Racked, but there’s also a surplus of dresses that shop owners are now trying to unload. Gilda Mizrahi, who owns the D.C.-based boutique Signature Dresses, is one of those shop owners.
