Top 5 Affordable Prom Dresses That Look Expensive

Hey AMARRA babes! Prom 2022 will be one of your high school highlights, but it also comes with a major price tag. From hair and makeup to the after-party supper run, your bank account will be taking a huge hit, so finding affordable prom dresses is important.

Thankfully, you can cut costs for prom on the most unlikely place: your dress. While it’s the most important prom investment, a dress doesn’t have to cost four figures to look good. The right color and cutting can definitely make a dress look way more expensive than it costs.

Prom dresses in single colors tend to be more affordable, and you get the chance to go for a full monochrome look or indulge in a little color blocking. Going for clean, classic silhouettes is also key for achieving an elevated look. Here’s our top picks of affordable prom dresses that look expensive.

Style 87243: Cinderella, reinvented

The baby blue shade of this gown is strikingly similar to Cinderella’s iconic dress, but with a modern twist.

With a contemporary square neckline and thick straps that accentuate the shoulders, this simple yet elegant number has a subtle empire waistline that is forgiving at the stomach so you don’t have to worry about eating!

The gown flows down smoothly into a gorgeous train right at the knees, but the back of this dress is what really sets it apart from Cinderella’s original dress. The stunning lattice back of this dress is absolutely stunning, especially as it ends in a deep V cutout at the lower back. A little risqué, and it definitely gives this dress the edge of a designer piece.

Style 87245: Silky in scarlet

Bombshell alert! The fiery red shade of this gown screams LOOK AT ME and the slinky material of the gown clings onto every curve, instantly giving you a confidence boost as you walk into Prom 2022.

This look is way more than just a bodycon red dress – it is thoughtfully designed. The sweetheart neckline of this dress opens into a plunging neckline, turned dress-code appropriate with sheer paneling. The high slit is strategically positioned to show some leg, without showing too much.

Pair this gown with a pair of killer heels, borrow some jewelry from your older sister, and you’ll look like you just stepped out of the Met Gala!

Style 87325: Satin is the new silk

Besides cutting and color, texture can turn a dress from 0 to 100. You probably have your eye on that luxe silk gown, but a matte-finish satin can give you the same effect. This next look does just that.

Style 87325 features an electric royal blue color look that is accented by the shine of the fabric, giving it a high-brow quality that many affordable dresses fail to mimic. The dress sticks to a timeless silhouette to avoid adding noise to the rich shade and texture – a sweetheart neckline with a thick ribbon cinching the waist in.

We think that less is more with this look, perhaps a simple pair of earrings and dust some extra highlight on your collar bones. Sometimes, simplicity is key.

Style 87344: Sugar, spice and everything bespoke

This strapless dress is in the perfect coral pink shade that will complement all skin shades.

Fit is always a priority and that’s what makes this dress look expensive – it’ll fit you like a glove, regardless of your size. The clever adjustable back gives this look a custom-made feel to it that you simply can’t find with other off-the-rack gowns!

And is it just us, or is this candy-colored number giving off SWEET BUT PSYCHO vibes?

Style 87345: It’s time to party!

Are you ready to hit the dance floor in this dress? Shimmer and shimmy your way into your crush’s heart with an iridescent print that is absolutely ON POINT.

This iridescent sequin print is iconic and we’ve made the dress even better! The glossy fabric of this affordable gown adds a natural “ wet” look to it, setting it apart from similar dresses on the market.

The back is TO DIE FOR, without being over the top. A great balance of flashy and classy, this dress is for the girls with big personalities!
