Budget-friendly prom fashion

As fabulous and fun as prom is, it's also an expensive endeavor once you factor in the dress, shoes, accessories, hair and makeup (if you’re getting them professionally done). To help, we’ve scoured the Web to come up with 10 statement-making prom dresses that won’t break the bank. Happy shopping!

Budget-friendly prom fashion

6Brocade & bows (Delia's, $49.50)

Impress your friends (and your date) in this elegant brocade tube dress in cream. The bow detail and intricate ruching in front set this look apart from the pack.

7Totally tiered (Gap, $89.50)

Strut your stuff on the dance floor in this fun and flirty dress from the Gap. We love the short cap sleeves and vintage-inspired tiered tulle fringe skirt.

8Go Grecian (Piper Lime, $44)

This black Tinley Road dress with Grecian-inspired gathering at the waist and asymmetrical neckline is simple but oh so stylish paired with black pumps and metallic accessories.

9Make it metallic (, $79.99)

Say yes to silver in this Maggy London short metallic dress with slight bubble skirt, rosette-embellished shoulders and pretty, scooped neckline. A dress like this doesn't need many accessories, so keep jewelry simple.

1080s inspired (Urban Outfitters, $60)

Channel your inner 1980s fashionista with this sleek and sexy floral mini dress with sheer mesh top. Pair with bold accessories to complete the retro-leaning look.
