At last night's 2018 Golden Globe Awards, stars made history by wearing all black on the red carpet to take a stand against sexual harassment and gender discrimination. Not only did it send an undoubtedly powerful message, it also showed us fashion lovers the range of creativity that can be displayed, even when confined to one color scheme. I thought it only fitting to round up some of the best little black dresses on a budget inspired by the start of award season. Read on for 9 of my top picks under $100.

1. Leith Ruched Long Sleeve Dress ($79, nordstrom.com)
For versatility and comfort, nothing beats a Leith dress according to their legions of fans and 5-star reviews. Dress this up with glam accessories and heels or wear it casually with a blazer and sneakers.
2. Felicity & Coco Shift Dress ($98, nordstrom.com)
I love the shift for work or the weekend. The sleeves on this dress are especially pretty and that detail in the front is so flattering.
3. LC Lauren Conrad Fit & Flare Dress ($32, kohls.com)
Nothing says party time like tulle! Lauren Conrad's take on a classic cocktail dress is flirty, feminine and under $35!
4. A New Day Fleece Swing Dress ($24.99, target.com)
This fleece dress looks so cozy for winter weather. I can see this working with leggings and ballet flats, or your favorite ankle boots. Definitely a closet must-have.
5. Who What Wear Ruffle Knit Midi Dress ($34.99, target.com)
Who What Wear always delivers dresses that real women can wear to work and afterwards. Thank you for long sleeves and longer hemlines! Sophisticated and chic.
6. H&M Sequined Velour Dress ($69.99, hm.com)
This showstopper reminds me of Balmain with its modern silver sequin design. Major drama, minor pricetag.
7. ASTR The Label Lace Midi Dress ($89, nordstrom.com)
This dress was among the top selling fashion & beauty products of 2017 and for good reason. It looks like designer dresses that cost hundreds more. And it's perfect for Valentine's Day, too, which is just around the corner.
8. Lulus Trumpet Gown ($84, nordstrom.com)
For your own red carpet moment, this floor length trumpet gown is simple yet oh-so-sexy. It's a great little investment piece you can wear to any special occasion for years to come.
9. Isabel Maternity T-Shirt Dress ($24.99, target.com)
For my fellow pregnant mammas, here's a great maternity fashion must-have! Layer this with your favorite cardigan, scarf and boots. Or dress it up with a blazer and heels. My favorite maternity jeans are by this Target brand so I can only imagine this dress is just as good, too!
