Best place to Buy Cheap Prom Dresses

Fifteen Stores Where You Can Buy a Party Dress for Under $150

1 Ambiance

The Union Street Ambiance seems to have more party dress options than this chain's other locations around town. If you only have time to stop at one location for a budget-friendly, sparkly dress, this is your best bet. Additional locations in Noe Valley, Upper Haight, and Inner Sunset.

1864 Union St
San Francisco, CA 94123

(415) 923-9797

2 My Roommate's Closet

Though discounted options from Parker and Haute Hippie generally run more expensive than the $150 cap for this roundup, My Roommate's Closet has lots of under $100 options from Eight Sixty. The boutique outlet is worth the trip, but you should budget for time to dig through the racks.

3044 Fillmore St
San Francisco, CA 94123

3 Zara

Zara has a reputation for copying runway looks as soon they walk at fashion week. Depending on how you feel about that, you can scoop up the latest trends for your holiday parties at a fraction of the price. If you only have time for one Zara stop in Union Square, opt for the Post Street location; it's larger and usually has a better selection.

250 Post Street
San Francisco, CA 94108

(415) 399-6930

4 Macy's

Don't dismiss Macy's because it's the chain where you bought your prom dress. The Union Square location is massive and carries lots of party options from designer diffusion lines like Lauren Ralph Lauren and Michael Michael Kors, (which are significantly cheaper than the premium lines). For those who work long hours, Macy's stays open later than any other store in Union Square.

170 O'Farrell St
San Francisco, CA 94105

5 Banana Republic

Banana Republic consistently churns out shimmery dresses for holiday parties and considerately prices them under $150. And, with the near-non-stop promotions in the store, you're doing something wrong if you can't find a dress 30-50% off. To ensure that your size is waiting when you arrive, try the reserve in store option on the website.

256 Grant Ave
San Francisco, CA 94108

(415) 788-3087

6 H&M

H&M brought its A-game to the holidays this year. We're talking pouffy skirts, beaded pants, and sequined dresses and skirts at unbelievably cheap prices. While there are three Union Square locations, the Powell flagship generally has the best selection.

150 Powell St
San Francisco, CA 94102

(855) 466-7467

7 Bloomingdale's

Yes, you can find tons of designer labels at Bloomie's, but the in-house Aqua line has some solid options for holiday parties: midriff/skirt separate combos, jumpsuits, traditional dresses. Most pieces are under 0, and many are under 0.

845 Market St
San Francisco, CA 94103

(415) 856-5300

8 Cary Lane

Cary Lane is another great discount option in the city. The store offers deals on designer apparel at up to 80% off the regular retail price, specializing in samples and past season apparel. You'll need an hour or so to peruse the racks and try on options, but there's always something fun waiting for you at the shop. Additional locations in the Inner Sunset and Mission.

560 Laguna St.
San Francisco, CA 94102

(715) 896-4210

9 Azalea Boutique

Azalea has a fancy new location in the Mission, but the Hayes Valley original holds a special place in our hearts. Most of the dresses trend toward the more casual side, but there are a few under 0 options that could work for the party circuit.

411 Hayes St
San Francisco, CA 94102

(415) 861-9888

10 Tatyana Boutique

If you dig the retro look, Tatyana on Haight has retro-influenced styles that won't break the bank. For the holidays, the sparkly wiggle dresses (many under 0) are party-ready options.

1529 Haight St.
San Francisco, CA

(415) 864-6001

11 Ideele

It's easy to overlook this unassuming store at the corner of Haight and Clayton, but it always has trendy dresses at reasonable prices. Almost everything in the shop is under $100. These won't be your forever clothes, but they'll get you through a party season without repeating an outfit on Facebook.

1600 Haight St
San Francisco, CA 94117

(415) 431-8836

12 BellJar

This Mission boutique filled with "gorgeous little things" also has gorgeous little dresses to get you through your December soirees. Best of all, you can find a killer jumpsuit for under $75!

3187 16th Street
San Francisco, CA 94103

(415) 626-1749

13 mira mira

The gorgeous beaded Mara Hoffman dresses that you see on Mira Mira's social media cost a pretty penny, but Mira also stocks super-cute, budget-friendly Mary Meyer dresses and tunics that would work for office-to-evening ensembles.

3292 22nd St
San Francisco, CA 94110

(415) 648-6513

14 Covet Boutique

While this Inner Sunset spot is more reliable for bags and accessories than dresses, there are a few, inexpensive options that you can dress up in a pinch. Additional locations on Union and Arguello.

548 Irving St

FAQ

Where can I find an inexpensive floral prom dress? | Yahoo Answers

I want the dress to have a "fishtail", meaning it flares at the bottom. I would like bright psychodelic colors and print.

If you have a Deb Store near you check that out. It carries junior style clothing and plus sizes as well as shoes and purses and accessories. I bought almost all of my formal dresses there. Depending on when you go in, there are incredible sales. One of my dresses was marked down to $15 from $100. The most I paid for a $150 dress was about $35-$50. I'm from Michigan so I'm not sure where other Deb Stores are located but I'd check there if you have one.
