10 Drop Waist Dresses That Will Not Break the Bank

One of the current trends that I’ve started to see popping up in stores around town is the drop waist dress. It is definitely a different shape than I normally wear (and I realize isn’t well suited for all body types), but I think I’m going to be jumping on this particular trend! I love how the drop waist detail can create a girly, ruffled shape at the bottom of a dress…it’s so feminine and fun!

I’ve rounded up a collection of 10 drop waist dresses that you can add to your own wardrobe without breaking the bank.

2- Squirrel Print Collar dress, Topshop

3 – Cooperative Crepe Slit-Back Shift Dress, Urban Outfitters

    These are adorable! Not for women with curves though! It’s going to be a while till I get into one of these.

      Yeah, I do hear you on that! Drop waist dresses are not for all figures…they’re not universally flattering!

      I love the contrasting collar and the funky print on that one too!

    I love these picks! I have a wishy washy relationship with drop waist dresses–they don’t always look great on me, but I’m determined to find one that works!

      I love drop waist dresses! I feel like they work well for me because I am short and have short legs. I love #7 and #9! those are adorable!

      I’m with you – they are a very specific style! I had to try on a few before I settled on one that I loved!

    I really love no. 1, no. 5 and no. 8. – I like the subtle style and they just look adorable. Although I’m not sure if it looks really good on me or not. But I’ve tried a drop waisted dress before and it just look – um, blah. lol. Best thing about these, they’re really affordable.

  1. [...] Until recently, I used to only venture into Ann Taylor LOFT for some shopping. You’ve got to love their selection, as well as their awesome sales! They recently held a Friends and Family sale where the entire store was 40% off – how can you beat that?!?! I happened to pick up this lovely little number on that shopping trip: a drop waist dress (and you know how I’ve been thinking about them lately)! [...]
