With a budget of $200, you can find a decent selection of formal wear on TheDressWarehouse. Our huge discounts mean that dresses which would cost two or three times the price are available here for incredible bargains, and $200 will get you more than you might imagine.
For $200 and below, we have several amazing evening gowns suitable for proms, pageants, wedding wear and other formal occasions. With your sub-$200 outfit’s exquisite attention to detail and faultless construction, it’s hard to tell what will leave your friends more speechless: your stunning dress or its bargain price.
In addition to floor-length evening gowns, you will find lovely, short cocktail dresses and party jumpsuits with elaborate textures, intricate beadwork and luxurious fabrics. These amazing outfits will be of far better quality than inferior copycat pieces you might find elsewhere.
At TheDressWarehouse, we believe that you don’t need to spend thousands to look like a million bucks. We achieve these shocking discounts by working with our designers to select some overstocked items from their collections. We then make these clothes available to you at greatly marked down costs. No other online store makes discount priced high-end designer gowns available in one place, all the time.
Choosing a Formal Dress Under $200
No matter what kind of prom dress you’re looking for, always consider your body type. There are five body types: pear-shaped, apple-shaped, tall and thin, petite, and the widely coveted hourglass shape. No type is better than another; instead, different types of dresses are more flattering to some body types and less so to others.
For example, pear-shaped body types, whose weight is concentrated in the rear and thighs, should choose fit and flare or A-line dresses because they tend to conceal this area. Petite girls will find one-shoulder, off the shoulder, or asymmetric designs very flattering because they elongate the silhouette.
When choosing color, take your skin tone into account. Millennial purple may be all the rage, but it’s not flattering to darker skin. If your skin is pale, go for it by all means.
While considering skin tone and body type is recommended, it is by no means mandatory. Feel free to choose a designer dress under $200 for the prom just because you like how it looks.
Dresses Under $200: Trends to Consider
In 2020, vintage dresses with puffy sleeves and bold red carpet styles are in. Romantic ball gowns, like ours by Morrell and Maxie, are the style to be seen in. As for colors and prints, look for animal inspired or metallic hues, or attention-grabbing color blocks. If you’re not the edgy type or these just don’t seem appealing to you, you’d be happy to know understated and delicate floral prints are trendy too.
Most girls buy prom dresses online today. Start looking at least three months in advance because you’ll need to think about shipping delays.
