Every once in a while it’s fun to leave the house wearing a sexy dress. Especially, if you’re someone who spends most of their time in loungewear or work apparel. Thankfully, many stores offer dresses that are sexy yet still appropriate for everyday wear. And in a lot of cases, these dresses look better than those that show a ton of skin.
Below is a list of some of the best places to buy sexy dresses. These stores offer dresses for both daytime and nighttime activities in all sorts of beautiful styles and price ranges.
Bebe is one of my favorite places to look for dresses due to their sexy yet sophisticated styles. Many of their dresses are form-fitting and they use a lot of different fabrics including satin, lace, faux leather, and suede. The only downside is that they don’t offer many plus-size options and they can be a little pricey.
Most dresses average around $100. Check their outlet section or search eBay for better deals.
Venus offers a large collection of women’s wear which includes dresses in all sorts of pretty styles. Here you will find everything from long and flowy dresses to tighter more form-fitting styles. As a bonus, they offer a plus-size collection and you can often find helpful sizing information in their product reviews.
Many of their dresses are reasonably priced at $40 and up. They also have sales on a regular basis.
Lulu’s is a trendy fashion site that offers a collection of over 1700 different dress styles (including plus-size). I love that they offer everything from sweet and simple to more eye-catching designs. They also allow people to post pictures of themselves wearing the dresses, making it easier to see how it looks in real life.
Lulus has a wide price range but most dresses fall between $40 to $100. Good news is they often go on sale.
Lucy In The Sky
The majority of dresses at Lucy In The Sky can be described as sweet and sexy with many options coming in beautiful pastel shades. Their style selection reminds me a lot of Lulus so if you like one, you will probably like the other. This brand is particularly good if you’re petite since they offer a lot of shorter-length options. Plus, they often include videos of their dresses so you can see how it looks on a moving body.
Many of their dresses fall between $50 to $70 but they also offer sale and clearance styles.
Shein has over 29,000 dresses in every style you could possibly imagine in both regular and plus-sizes. Thankfully, they offer lots of filters (like color and sleeve length) to help narrow down your choices. And many of the reviews contain helpful pictures and sizing information so be sure to check them out.
Most dresses are under $20.
ASOS offers a large dress selection with over 6,000 stylish options. Since their dresses come from many different designers, you will see a wide range of styles. You will also find dresses specially made for specific size groups including misses, plus-sizes, and petites. Like Shein, they offer filters where you can narrow your choices by neckline, sleeve length, and color. Some of their dresses also include helpful videos that demonstrate how the dress will look on a moving body.
Most of their dresses are less than $50 and some are even less than $20 during their sales.
Dillard’s is an upscale department store that offers a beautiful dress selection in multiple size ranges including juniors, petites, misses, and plus-sizes. Their juniors department is one of my favorites with over 1,500 dress choices with many options that are also suited for adults.
Many dresses are $60-140 when full price but their sale selection is fantastic with many styles under $40.
Free People offers a mid-sized collection of dresses that often have a bohemian vibe to them. I would describe their dresses as sweet and sexy with lots of ruffles and feminine touches. Compared to other sites, they carry a lot of loose-fitting, flowing styles which are perfect if you don’t want something that’s too binding. The only negative is that they tend to be on the pricier side, but you can often find their products sold on other sites like Macy’s where they might be cheaper.
Many dresses range from $75-200, but they do offer a sale selection.
Urban Outfitters is very similar to Free People in regards to price, style, and size selection. The biggest difference is that Urban Outfitters offers a larger collection of fitted options and they tend to be less expensive. Some may find their styles (including the prints), a little “youngish”. But overall I think they are worth checking out, especially if you are looking for casual, daytime dresses.
Many dresses fall within the $50-90 range. For more affordable options, check out their sale selection.
Abercrombie offers a lovely dress selection including some with some pretty floral prints. They also offer fitted sweater dresses (which I’m a big fan of) along with more feminine flowy styles. Many of their dresses also come in different lengths, which is great if you are petite or on the taller side.
Most full-price dresses start at $69 but they often have sale options for much less.
Nordstrom rack currently has over 8,000 dresses listed on their site, many by high-end designers including Calvin Klein, Free People, and French Connection to name a few. Their site doesn’t have as many filter options as others so you may have to do a little digging to find the sexier styles. On the bright side, they offer a decent plus-size selection. Please note, if you like Nordstrom Rack also check out Saks Off 5th which offers a smaller but similar collection.
Prices vary greatly by brand but many dresses can be purchased for less than $40.
Revolve offers over 3,500 dress options by high-end designers including For Love & Lemons, Free People, and Superdown. Their collection includes all types of dresses from ultra-sexy to long and flowy. They don’t have many plus-size options and they do tend to be pricey. But on the positive side, they do have some beautiful and unique styles you won’t see elsewhere.
Most dresses start at $60 and quickly increase from there.
Eshakti is a unique store that allows you to choose a dress and then customize it by changing things like the length, neckline, sleeve type, and more. All of their styles are sophisticated, but a few have a sexy vibe to them especially if you choose a lower neckline or shorter dress length. They are a great option for people who have trouble finding dresses that fit them correctly. Their dresses also go up to size 6x and many measurements can be customized to fit you perfectly.
Prices are reasonable with most dresses $50 to $75.
Guess offers a nice combination of both ultra-feminine and slightly edgier dress designs. Their selection isn’t as huge as other stores and there isn’t a plus-size collection but with over 200 styles there is sure to be something you would like. Since Guess tends to be pricey, you can also check out Guess Factory which offers a more affordable selection of dresses in fun and flirty styles.
Most dresses are over $100. But you can find their products at other stores (like Macy’s) where you might get a better deal.
