Sometimes it's hard to find "nice day out" (rather than "8am class") clothing for an affordable price. I'm always seeking inexpensive pieces that are stylish, flattering, and easy to wear for both fancy and casual occasions. And sometimes it's a struggle!
Obviously, I was psyched to find this H&M dress, which checks all my style boxes. The off-the-shoulder trend isn't just popular; it's here to stay. This dress mixes the trend with '90s-fab crinkle fabric and a versatile yet bold red polka dot print.
This will be your new go-to dress, so read on to see three ways to style it.
