25 Summer Dresses Under $70 That Will Give Your Wardrobe A Fresh New Feel

Whenever warmer weather rolls around I get the itch to overhaul my closet. OK, every time a new season rolls around I get that itch, let's be real. In order to curb my spending I try to find good buys under a certain price limit, and summer dresses under $70 seems like an excellent place to start. Adding monetary parameters while online shopping is kind of like putting blinders on a horse— you won't be tempted to go places or in this case buy things that you can't actually see and it'll save you a lot of money.

If you're wondering if any dresses under $70 are actually worth buying, the answer is yes. No matter what you're after, trust me when I say that there are plenty of options that you'll be genuinely excited about. From knit maxis and silky slip dresses to floral minis and lots of ruching, you'll be greeted with almost too many good options to choose from. I narrowed down my finds to the top 25 styles, which you can peruse below. Adding one or two new dresses to your wardrobe can make it feel all kinds of shiny and new, so go ahead and treat yourself.
