Let me first admit, half of these dresses on the list might not meet the standard qualifications for “holiday.” Shopping sustainably on a super budget means lots of sales. So many of these are summer dresses that fit into a loose holiday motif, reds, greens, shine. Some are dresses that are classics that can be made holiday ready with the right shoes and accessories. Do you like these super budget roundups? Let me know in the comments below.

A line dresses are so flattering. This one from Mata Traders is in a festive red but brings in the fun with its sailboat pattern. It’s made with handmade fair trade production in India.
This dress is from the summer, but I think it has a trans-seasonal vibe. The green and red flowers work super well for Christmas. It’s natural linen and made with as little waste as possible.
