Since the AM: Best Places to Buy Winter Formal Dresses


As the Starry-Night-themed Winter Formal quickly approaches, shopping for dresses may seem like a daunting task. The six stores listed below, however, will help you on your search to find the perfect dress. Happy shopping!

number1Revolve Clothing

This website has a variety of different brands from Free People to Parker. It has several hundred options of party dresses that come in every style, but most dresses do cost above one hundred dollars since it is a designer oriented website. However, they constantly have great sales, and finding a great bargain is not hard. Revolve also has free two to three day shipping and returns so if you are running out of time to find a Winter formal dress, Revolve is a great option.


If you are looking for affordable dresses, Tobi is the place to check. Most of their dresses are around fifty dollars or sometimes even cheaper. Although the quality of the dresses is not top notch, for the price, they are worth it. Be aware that this website constantly has fifty percent off sitewide deals as well.


Nordstrom is one of the best department stores to shop for party dresses. They have in-store alterations, free shipping and returns, and many stores around the Dallas area. Like Revolve, they have a plethora of brands ranging from high end designer to more affordable brands. If you need jewelry and shoes to go with the dress, Nordstrom makes it easy for you as they have everything in one place.

number4Neiman Marcus CUSP

Neiman Marcus is another terrific department store similar to Nordstrom to find your perfect dress, however, you must be willing to pay a little extra to get the right one. CUSP is a branch under the Neiman Marcus label that offers more trendy clothing brands from Alice + Olivia to Parker to Vince. Unfortunately, CUSP is only located at Northpark inside of Neiman Marcus, but you can always shop online.
