It seems like quite literally everyone is attending weddings at the moment—every weekend I see yet another celebration displayed all over Instagram. Obviously spring and summer are popular seasons for just such, which gives you the perfect excuse to stock up on cute cocktail dresses that can double as wedding guest attire. Luckily, Amazon has a ton of affordable options for $50 and under, with some even on sale.

Right now, the number one seller at Amazon for cocktail dresses is this sleeveless Anrabess number —it has tie up ribbon straps, a square neckline and will hit at midi length on most. It also comes in 29 different solid colors, including dark green, red and light blue. One reviewer wrote that it was “perfect for a wedding” they attended, and that the fabric “looks and feels so elegant but is still so comfortable and stretchy.”
