4 Affordable Event Dress Ideas
The inspiration for this post came from me not knowing what to wear to a baby shower that I’m attending this month. I ordered a bunch of affordable dresses from Shein hoping that one would work out. I had no idea I was going to love each of them so much! I thought it would be fun to share them all in a blog post for those of you who need a few great ideas for dresses to wear to events if you’re like me and also don’t love to spend a pretty penny on a dress you may only wear once!

I am 5’9” and a size Medium across the board, but when it comes to Shein I like to size up. I got a Large in all of these dresses and only one dress (not pictured) didn’t work out length-wise. Otherwise they all fit perfectly!
Beige Pom Pom Dress
I’ve seen this style all over Instagram this summer and I’m glad I finally ordered it! It comes in a darker brown color too but I love how dainty and pretty this warm beige color is. The pom pom details give in just the right amount of interest! It is slightly sheer but I got away with nude colored undergarments with no issue, but you may want to wear a slip with it!
Polka Dot Ruffle Wrap Dress
This dress comes in a bunch of colors but I’ve been on the hunt for more blue pieces to add to my wardrobe! I love polka dots and wrap dresses are universally flattering. I probably could have gotten away with sizing up one more time with this dress for the width, but the length was perfect for me! I wish I had gotten this dress earlier in the summer!
Peach Chiffon Tiered Off Shoulder Dress
This dress is perfect for a wedding shower or guest outfit! I love the layered ruffles and this color is to DIE for gorgeous! It’s hard to see in the photos but there are thin straps that hold the dress up and also make it so the off shoulder part stays down, off your shoulders (hope that makes sense).
Floral Midi Dress
I love this dress, but when I put it on it was kind of like a mumu, I wish it had a tie to go around the waist, but with the belt it is actually my favorite dress from the whole order! Problem solved! This dress looks and feels like a $100 dress and it was UNDER $30. I still can’t believe it! It also has beautiful movement as you can see in the photos.
Which dress is your favorite? I don’t know how I’m going to choose which one to wear to the baby shower, I love them all so much!
