There are times when wearing the same dress as someone else is a complete nightmare — the Oscars, your birthday party, a child's birthday party (and you're wearing an outfit that's eerily similar to said child), for instance. But there are exceptions to this rule, especially when it comes to an item of clothing so accessible, universally flattering, and versatile as the cotton off-shoulder minidress.

Sure, you've probably already seen 'em everywhere this summer, be it in your office, on the street, in stores, or maybe even in your own closet. For those yet to hop on the trend, great news! You can find one right now at pretty much every store, in a wide range of sizes, colors, and most importantly, prices.

Below, we've pulled a list of where to buy an off-the-shoulder sundress this season online or IRL, ranging from just $25 and up. And when you inevitably pass by someone else in the street wearing a similar style, just give 'em a knowing nod.
