Cocktail Dresses Under $200 from Nordstrom

12 May |


We are officially in peak wedding season! With the warm temperatures and gorgeous spring blooms, it makes for the perfect setting to have an outdoor wedding. This typically means a cocktail style dress is called for. In this guide to wedding guest dresses, I’ve teamed up with Nordstrom to bring you the best cocktail dresses for spring.

Nordstrom is always my go-to retailer for event dresses. I love the wedding guest shop section on their website. It’s full of dresses from different designers, outfit-making shoes and accessories that are just right. You can shop it by clicking here.


This magenta Lulu’s one shoulder dress features a puff sleeve detail and ruffle asymmetrical hem. I love that it’s both flirty and figure flattering! It’s perfect if you’re wanting a cocktail dress that is less than $80 and can be worn for multiple occasions. It’s elegant enough to wear to a wedding, and it can also be worn to a work event or another spring event you may have!

In case you missed it, I share a few more spring wedding guest dress options from Nordstrom in this post!


I recently purchased these Open Edit twisted heels and love them. They feature a block heel that is easy to walk in and not too high. They are perfect for a night of dancing! The neutral color allows you to pair them with any dress and instantly look put-together. These would also be a great option if you’re looking for a comfortable block heel to add to your work wardrobe.

I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite event shoes below! I suggest investing in at least one pair of quality heels that you can wear all season long. I naturally gravitate towards a neutral shoe with a block heel. This style is typically more comfortable and can be paired with any event dress.


My go-to accessory for weddings and events is my YSL wallet on a chain. The cost per wear has made it well worth the investment. It features a light metallic gold color that I can pair with any dress. The chain strap is removable, so I can add it on when I need a crossbody style handbag and detach it when I’m wanting a clutch. If you’re not ready to make the investment, or want to try out the style before investing in a designer bag, I recommend this clutch!
