The weekend is closer, which means you're probably spending more than your fair share of time figuring out what to wear out. A go-to mini skirt or your favorite pair of jeans are obvious standbys, but sometimes a girl needs an upgrade.
Enter the modern party dress, which — when worn correctly — can look chic, festive, and totally unique. However, the wide world of party dresses can be an intimidating one to navigate — you don't want to go too short or be too sparkly, but a little bit of skin and flounce are definitely warranted to really stand out.
We've compiled 15 modern party dresses (all under $100) that are appropriate for every type of girl, from the super-ladylike to the ultra-bold. Peruse this gallery and start shopping!
