Whether you are a wedding guest, attending an event or just want to look super dressed up for a night out, I’ve rounded up some of the best sites for inexpensive formal clothing and accessories!
1.) For Dresses: MUEE.com
To say that I am obsessed with formal dresses is the understatement of the year. I have close to 20 hanging in my closet and honestly no where to wear them other than to weddings since I am no longer the age to attend prom or homecomings. That being said, I continue to buy more because (let’s be real) I have a problem. When I came across this site I was instantly in love. MUEE is a global retailer that offers dresses for a variety of different occasions including evening dresses, wedding dresses, prom dresses, communion dresses, cocktail dresses, bridesmaid dresses and more. The site features over 1,200 different styles, all which are customizable and incredibly affordable. What I love about this company in particular, is that each dress is offered in almost any color imaginable. I often find that when I’m looking for a dress elsewhere I always see cute ones that aren’t in the color that I want. That is definitely not the case here!

2.) For Shoes: DSW
I’ve gotten so many gorgeous pairs of shoes for weddings and events at DSW. You can check out their selection of evening and wedding shoes here. If the dress is simple I like to add some sparkle on my feet, but if my dress has a lot of embellishments I’ll choose a simpler shoe.
3.) For Jewelry: 16KT Beauty
Whether you are looking for something dainty or bold sparkling pieces, 16KT Beauty has you covered! With prices as low as $5 it’s hard to resist buying everything.

4.) For Red Carpet Make-up: Camera Ready Cosmetics
This site has everything you need for a full night of glam! Camerareadycosmetics.com carries makeup for use in professional makeup artist kits. A.K.A. it’s likely that your favorite stars wear some of the brands that are featured here. Some of my personal recommendations include RCMA (Ariana Grande has mentioned wearing this before on the set of Nickelodeon), Ben Nye and Cinema Secrets. *Tip* this site also offers samples of many of the products, so you can try before you buy, which is especially helpful for getting the correct foundation color.
5.) For Hair Pieces: Etsy
