Under-$150 Date Dresses Just In Time For Valentine’s Day

·2 min read

February 14 can feel like a money pit. Regardless of how you spend the holiday (Takeout dinner? Homemade cocktails? Living room dance party?), you’re going to be spending on the holiday. And lest you forget, it’s nice to have a new outfit. While you could just recycle that little black dress you’ve worn for five years straight, Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to dress to impress — whether you’re fancying up for your partner or hosting a Zoom movie marathon with your three best friends.

But pulling out all the stops for a jaw-dropping look doesn’t necessarily mean pulling out all the cash in your wallet. To prove it’s easy to look great without draining your piggy bank, we rounded up a selection of stylish dresses that each ring in under $150. Click through now to find the one that will make your Valentine’s Day that much sweeter.

At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team, but if you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
