When I was 16, I ordered my prom dress off eBay. It cost $60, and took six weeks to reach my house. As if that wasn't bad enough, upon opening the box I discovered that it was the wrong color, wrong size, and looked more like a potato sack than a lovely gown. The point is, shopping for dresses online can be a real toss-up — unless you check the reviews beforehand. Had I done even the slightest amount of research, I would've (hopefully) realized that the price was too good to be true. And if I was still too dumb to take the hint? The reviews would've told me that the only reason to buy it would be if I wanted to light $60 on fire. Which, come to think of it, would've at least provided me with a few moments of warmth instead of a box of garbage. But don't worry — every dress on this list not only has near-perfect reviews, but they're also seriously in style right now. Keep on scrolling, and you'll see what I mean!
