Insomniac Sale Picks: Drop-waist Dresses

*In this late-night feature – which will run Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Cléo requested a few picks for drop-waist dresses, so here we go:

ASOS Drop Waist Shirt Dress – was $69.58, now $31.31

Of all the loose, flowy drop-waists I’ve seen, this one appears to be the loosest and flowiest! Add a long necklace or two and some funky heeled sandals, and you’ve got an eye-catching outfit. Available in sizes 2 – 14 in this coral, size 6 in bright green. (One caveat – this color is described by ASOS as “pink.” Looks more like coral or orange to me, but that could just be my monitor.)

rsvp Mia Dress – was $110, now $33

And, at the opposite end of the spectrum, here’s a drop-waist dress with a slim-fitting bodice. Look closely and you’ll see that this dress has some very elegant draping that climbs from the dropped waist up toward the bustline. Available in this dark olive and black in sizes S – L.

Athleta Downtown Dress – was $108, now $84.99

This style doesn’t have as severe a drop as the others, but it falls lower on the torso than most dresses. Available in this gray, dusty green, and dusty blue in XXS – XL.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for drop-waist dresses (lots, since I’m not exactly thrilled with what I could find on sale):

  1. All Saints – This British designer has drop-waist dresses both loose and fitted.
  2. Etsy – Many are vintage, but some are handmade and brand new. My search turned up nearly 3,000 drop waist dresses.
  3. ASOS – 23 options, including the one above. ASOS also offers a couple of its drop-waist styles in petite.
  4. Nordstrom – Lots of stylish drop-waists, but few on sale and most in limited size runs.
  5. Dorothy Perkins – This navy dress and this lace one were among the best I found.

      See, that’s what I saw, too! I wonder what the deal is …

    Thanks Sal! Love the Athleta dress, my exact type of colours and material! I would never have noticed it was drop waist… But some reviewers are complaining of it being long in the torso, which means perfect for me 🙂
