Vacation Dresses For Less

Figuring out what to wear, especially for a special event or vacation CAN be fun, exciting, and energizing. But, it can also be defeating, frustrating, and intimidating. We are on team fun. And we want you to be too. Getting dressed can and should be easy and fun! So, for this week’s For Less Friday, we’re sharing not one but TWO easy looks in the most beautiful and unexpected color…that looks amazing on SO many different skin tones. But, we’re not stopping there, these dresses will also fit and flatter many different body types, skimming over flaws and highlighting assets! If you have a warm weather trip coming up, these vacation dresses for less are a no-brainer.

If dresses are on your “add to cart” list this spring, you’ll find 15 stunning maxi dresses for summer vacations and beyond, here.

Vacation Dresses For Less


Chocolate Brown Caftan Under $90

Let’s start off with this gorgeous chocolate brown color! It truly looks amazing on all skin tones. It’s also so rich and luxe and a little unexpected for spring/summer. The L’Agance caftan Erin is wearing on the left is definitely “luxe” but it’s also currently on sale so if you’ve had your eye on it, now would be a great time to grab it here or here. On the right, we found a very similar caftan that’s more of a midi length but has the same beautiful one-shoulder detail! Both dresses are very thin and lightweight so you might want to consider wearing some sort of slip underneath. Your gold jewelry will look especially great with this rich brown color.

On-Trend Vacation Dress Under $125

The A-line dress Erin is wearing with the pretty ruffle details is a linen blend midi dress by Johanna Ortiz. Our for-less option is by ASTR The Label…a favorite Team Busbee brand. It has a similar cutout above the natural waist and slight puff shoulders. If you are concerned about the cutout, you might want to go back and read this post for an added boost of confidence. This is one way to try the cutout trend while keeping things fairly modest. Could you see yourself wearing either of these dresses for dinner after a day at the pool? We envision them styled with a woven tote or clutch and some strappy flat sandals or wedges!

Spring & Summer Wedges For Less

If you recognize these Vince Camuto ankle strap wedges it’s because we featured them in this For Less Friday post aaand this one. You all have been loving them and they continue to be a best-seller week after week. The heel height is very manageable, and the neutral color makes them so easy to wear with jeans, shorts, skirts and dresses. The ankle strap makes you feel extra secure too! They are also under $80 so they won’t break the bank.
