Desk to Dinner Dresses Under $100

Desk to dinner blog image

When the weather is literally giving us chills the last thing we’d like to do is factor in an additional outfit change. If it’s not straight into sweatpants, beneath a blanket and by the heater – we’re just not interested. Although hibernating for the winter sounds like a warm plan, sometimes social activities are just too good to pass up on... afterall, there is such a thing as FOMO.

We love a versatile piece as much as the next person so when a dress can take us from desk to dinner with the added perk of affordability, we’re on board. After some serious hunting we’ve got the best pieces to shop for your midweek social life that won’t blow out your budget.

Think of these dresses layered with a blazer for work vs. spruced up with statement earrings and a bold lip for dinner:
