We all love a bargain, don’t we? We, ahem, mature women, ladies of 50-plus who love fashion; we love tracking down a fab frock at a bargain price, don’t we?
Isn’t it lovely to have the satisfaction of being complimented on a great dress and knowing that not only does it look great, it was a steal too.
A couple of style tips…
- Something to keep in mind when buying a dress under £50: if you are on the border between sizes, it’s probably better to go up a size as manufacturers may have skimped a bit on fabric, so buying slightly bigger than your usual size may avoid the dress being a bit snug.
- If you are tall’ish and sometimes have an issue finding dresses long enough, look for a midi dress. The hottest dress-length for A/W16, the longer length means that even frocks under £50 should reach your knees.
M&S have lots of dresses under £50, but we especially love this ¾-sleeve printed number, £39.50, as it is the perfect wear-anytime dress – to work or out with the ladies for lunch. Just style it with opaque tights and ankle boots, or simple nude heels. Couldn’t be simpler…
We love this knee-length dress in subtle tiny leaf print from White Stuff, £49.95. Available in both Mountain Blue and Spinach Green, style yours with chestnut coloured boots and for ultimate off-duty style.
This bright dress with a head-turning print from loved&found at John Lewis, £49, is a super chic frock at a very small price. This dress is super flattering as it has a flattering round neckline and a matching fabric tie belt for an optional nipped in waistline.
Yet another fab frock at a brilliant price. This black midi from Ben de Lisi’s Principles collection at Debenhams is £44 and is available up to size 20. Dress this super flattering frock up with heels, a small bag and statement jewellery for dinner out, or add ankle boots and opaques for a great work dress.
We’ve fallen hard for this on-the-knee Wallis dress, £42, with its stunning oriental print and ruched side. Style yours with nude or metallic accessories. No-one will ever know it cost £42. (Oh, and it’s available in sizes 8 to 20).
If you are searching for a frock at a small price to take you to a party (so to speak – we haven’t yet nailed the dress that can drive or pay for dinner), this midi in black, with skater skirt and Bardot neckline from ASOS, £22, is what you’re looking for. Style with black courts (suede would be especially lush) and a black clutch plus statement earrings, leaving the neckline clean. No-one would ever guess your LBD cost so little!
Effortlessly stylish, Monsoon’s Zeta midi tunic dress, £49, has military-style pockets, roll-up sleeves and button fastenings. This ultra-flattering style has a v-shaped neckline and adjustable string ties that accentuate the waist. For cooler weather, style this navy-blue dress with a polo-neck sweater or a long-sleeve tee, biker boots and ribbed tights.
If you are looking for the perfect frock at a perfect price, look no further! This F&F at Tesco beauty in totally on-trend scarlet is everything you want from an A/W dress. And it’s available in sizes 6-22 and costs just £20! Style with loafers for work or with high boots for off-duty wear.
We know we said dresses under £50, and this one from Next is exactly £50, but we thought this was just too good to miss. Style this on-trend blanket-check beauty with loafers and opaques for the office and with high boots or heels and a skinny scarf or statement jewellery for going out.
We’ve fallen in love with this cowl neck asymmetric tunic from Cotton Edits, £45. It works just as well dressed up with heels or down with pumps, instantly securing its spot in your wardrobe this season. It’s also available in black if teal isn’t your thing!
