Trends evolve from season to season and year to year, so it's only natural that your personal style changes too over time. Exhibit A: As I get closer to 30, my idea of the perfect night out has changed, along with the way I dress for it. You're much more likely to catch me out for a nice dinner with close friends than making my way through an all-night bar crawl. (Not that there's anything wrong with that!) And I'm also now much more likely to spend a bit more money on a quality dress, knowing that it'll be deemed appropriate for multiple occasions. From dresses ideal for a casual night at the wine bar to an ace wedding-guest look, the picks below all ring in at under $600.
Going out is the perfect excuse to splurge on one of the most sought-after dresses of the season—but can you pick just one?
