Cupid’s big fat birthday is right around the corner! Whether you celebrate Valentine’s Day or Galentine’s Day, one thing is certain. It’s fun to get dressed up and hang out with people you care about. In today’s post, I’ve rounded up a handful of affordable white cocktail dresses, blush cocktail dresses, and red cocktail dresses that I think you’ll love. Although most are under $50, they’re all under $100. And, with the right accessories (like trendy sunglasses and handbags), they’re all versatile enough to be worn throughout the year! I mean, when has a LWD not come in handy? The correct answer is never.

Since a bunch of fun spring events are on the horizon, I’ve actually ordered three of these dresses for myself. Maybe we’ll even be twinning on Valentine’s Day! I’ve broken the dresses down into categories (white, blush, and red). You’ll be able to see the price, brand, and color options for each style. If you need help with accessories (like sunglasses, handbags, or shoes), I’ve linked some of my favorite sites at the bottom of this post!
