    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I'm obsessed with this dress! I purchased to wear for a wedding and got many compliments. The material is great and the fit was perfect. The color is a tad darker in person, but I expected it to be, and it was exactly what I wanted!" —Sabrina Smith

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in sizes S-XL and in seven colors).

    2. A ruffle bodycon midi with an off-the-shoulder detail to make you feel confident.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This dress fit so perfect and looks so elegant! I wore it for dinner for my birthday and received so many compliments. The size was perfect and so was the length." —Courtney Elizabeth barnes

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99 (available in sizes 0-22 and in black, navy, and pink).

    3. A knee-length floral swing dress designed to make you feel like a million bucks...even though it only costs as much as two fancy cocktails.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I adore this dress! The fit is absolutely gorgeous and runs as expected! It's so nice to have a dress that fits, isn't too tight, has sleeves, and a higher front! The color is beautiful too! Literally every time I wear this dress, I get compliments! It's a little long on me (I'm 5'2" and it hits a little lower than mid calf) but I just pair it with pointy pumps, and it's fine. If they had this dress in more patterns, I would buy every one of them! Love love love!" —Anne

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99 (available in sizes 14-24 and in seven colors and patterns).

    4. A bodycon midi that's anything but basic. Throw this on with some heels or sneakers and a jean jacket, and you'll feel so put together.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This dress is so cute!! It really hugs and accentuates your curves. The fabric is super soft and almost fleece-like on the inside. (But it's not see-through or light.) It is so comfy I could literally sleep in it. I bought it for New Years, but 10/10 would wear for any occasion." —Julianne

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in sizes S-XL and in 16 colors and patterns).

    5. A tie-front midi dress – you could tell your friend where you got it when she asks, or you could simply say, "Sorry, my hands are ~tied~".

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I am obsessed with this dress. It is much better than I expected coming from Amazon, especially for this price. The material is definitely the type that needs to be steamed well to get the wrinkles out, but other than that, it's great! It fits true to size. If anything, it's a little more scandalous than I thought because it does show more cleavage, and you can't really wear a bra with it, but overall it's a great dress." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $28.95 (available in sizes S-XL and in 29 colors and patterns).

    6. A patterned swing dress with more than 6,000 five-star reviews because it really is THAT amazing.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This dress had me at pockets! What a great dress, especially for work! It has pockets on both sides, a work-appropriate hemline, and the material is the kind where you can sit for hours, but it'll never show a wrinkle! I'm 5'6" and 150 lbs and the medium fits great. With wedges, it's the perfect outfit for work: comfy and practical yet classy." —AprilAries

    Get it from Amazon for $29.96 (available in sizes S–3XL and 36 colors and patterns).

    7. An off-the-shoulder maxi designed to make you feel like you're walking a runway when you're really just walking down the street. Just imagine it blowing in the breeze as you strut, not walk.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is a beautiful dress! I have received so many compliments, and this is going to be a summer staple. PLUS, IT HAS POCKETS. What I love about this type of cold shoulder dress is that underneath the ruffle, your arms go through arm openings (like a regular dress) so that the top of your dress stays in place. So, it can be a cold shoulder dress or a large scoop neck dress as a result."—Heather

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99 (available in sizes XS–XL and in 16 colors and patterns).

    8. A tie-neck cocktail dress with fun ruffle detailing because it's totally okay to love cheap ~frills~.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I really like this dress!!! The material is fantastic. I’m messy, so when I eat or drink anything I’m going to drop something. I dropped pasta, water, and an alcoholic beverage on this dress, and it plopped right off. I was amazed. It’s just a beautiful dress!! It shipped fast and fit as expected." —Mochat30

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99 (available in sizes XS-XL and in six colors).

    9. A ruffle-sleeve sheath dress designed to make you want to strike a pose immediately.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Get it from Amazon for $33.99 (available in sizes XS-3X and in 43 styles)

    10. A patterned v-neck skater dress that basically requires you have an epic adventure while wearing it.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This dress is so comfortable. I like the fit and flare style. It's fitted just under the bust. It is also great for breastfeeding! I do wear a cami under since the V is a little deep. I wish there were more colors available." —Stefanie Tatum

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99 (available in sizes S-XXL and in 35 colors and patterns).

    11. A simple lace-top cocktail dress you'll wear for years because it truly will not go out of style.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is one of my new favorite dresses. The material is nice and thick without being too heavy, and the quality is very nice. It doesn't feel cheap at all despite the $20 price tag. It's very versatile and can easily be dressed up or down. Love it!" —Spudma

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99 (available in sizes XS-3X and in 34 top styles and colors).

    12. A t-shirt maxi dress with pockets (!!) because there really isn't a better feature for dress than pockets. Where else am I supposed to store my phone, my lip balm, and the random receipts I should probably just throw away?!?

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I LOVE THIS DRESS!!! I have ordered all of the prints and the black one (8 total so far). I wear them to work during the week and running errands on the weekend. They are a t-shirt material, which I love. I constantly get complimented on these dresses, even from total strangers. It's nice to finally find a dress that is comfortable and looks cute. I am 5'6'' and they touch the floor. I have purchased the same style dress from other sellers, and they aren't the same quality. I will keep checking back for new prints!" —Dina Grubbs

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in sizes 14-26 and in 26 colors and patterns).

    13. A v-neck patterned tie-waist dress people will probably think you got from some fancy boutique.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This dress is more than I expected. It is very soft and feels lightweight but it is not see-through. It's perfect for work with a blazer but can also be worn casually, or even to church. I ordered a size larger than I normally wear, and it looks great. I could have ordered my normal small size, but I wanted to have extra room to dance if needed. The split on the sides is very respectable." —Elay and Dija

    Get it from Amazon for $27.56 (available in sizes XS–3X and in nine patterns).

    14. A hoodie dress so comfortable, you'll wonder how you ever lived without it.

    Promising review: "I cannot say enough amazing things about this dress. It came with the perfect pear shaped silhouette. It complements my curves and is super comfy! It's great for everyday use. I go to school, work, and have two kids, and this is truly perfect for the days I want to do the minimum but still look cute. I wish I had pics of the packaging and wear. It's truly is a steal for that price!" —Julie Hernandez

    Get it from Amazon for $28.88 (available in sizes XS-3X and in 29 colors, patterns, and sleeve lengths).

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I LOVE this dress. I received so many compliments while wearing it. I've worn it to a wedding and a mother-daughter tea. It highlights the boobs nicely. If you're shy, maybe wear a camisole or pin at the cleavage. I plan to purchase it in other colors." —Ms. Jones

    20. A floral maxi dress you'll really ~bloom~ in.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is the best dress I have ever purchased. It is very comfortable and soft. I am 5'2", so it is a little bit long on me, but that is not the dress problem hahaha. Anyways, the dress is of great quality fabric and very well made. I was surprised to see it has a zipper and side pockets. I put on the dress easily without knowing it had a zipper, once it was on I realized it had a zipper. It makes it that much better. So in love with it!!!!" —Tania

    Promising review: "I love this dress! I got compliments on it all day. My students could've sworn it was a $50 dress, and it's comfy to boot! I'm 5'5" and 140 lbs and I got the medium. I fits great and I even have a little extra room. It also goes past my knee, so it's a great length. I'm in love!" —Luke Brenneman

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99 (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 14 patterns and styles).

    23. A halter mini people will be in ~disbe-leaf~ over when you tell them you paid practically ~coconuts~ for it.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Typically I don’t purchase clothes online because I’m rarely happy. It doesn’t fit, it’s the wrong item, it’s not comfortable, it’s misleading and doesn’t look like it did in the picture. Regardless of the reason, I’m sure many of you can relate. This dress is my exception. I’ve received so many compliments on it. It’s beautiful, comfortable, and extremely lightweight! I would recommend this to anyone and would definitely purchase again!" —Amazon Customer

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "There are few words to describe this dress. It is absolutely gorgeous! Fit as expected and looks as pictured. The inside is silk, so it is super comfortable. It comes to a good length, I'm 5'7. It is stretchy so you could probably size down if you like a real fitted look, or size up to keep it loose, but I'd go with your true sizing. I would recommend this dress and many other Esprlia dresses for everyone. They really make some amazing dresses. Thank you! 😊" —Amanda Barnes

    Get it from Amazon for $33.99 (available in sizes 14-22 and in four colors).

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99 (available in sizes XS-XXL and in five colors).

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is my favorite dress of all time! I have it in navy and red! I am 5”3 and 123lbs, and I ordered the small. It is the perfect length to wear out, but I also wear it to work, and it is work appropriate. I have received more compliments on this dress than any other I own! It is so comfortable, and I have washed them both several times, and they still look brand new. I can not say enough good things about this dress — particularly compared to other brands I have purchased. You will NOT be disappointed!!!" —Lindsay Thornburg

I can wear it to church if I tape/pin the slit in place, or I can wear it out and show a little leg. It’s great for summer style wise, but a bit heavy for really warm weather. I can imagine this both in spring and fall and even winter with the right jacket. Style it up or down, for a date or a beach day, it’s a good basic to throw in your closet." —Kate Christensen

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99 (available in sizes XS-XL and in 27 colors and patterns).

    Get it from Amazon for $26.98 (available in sizes S-XXL and in 20 colors and patterns).

    37. And a bell-sleeve shift dress to ~shift~ you idea about wearing anything other than dresses. They're so great, who needs pants?

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This dress is super cute and made of quality material! The color is exactly as pictured. I love the bell sleeves. The length of dress is good. The v-neck is a little higher than what it appears to be, but I was happy with that. The dress is nice and flowy but also super cute if you add a belt to accentuate your waist. I’ve worn it both ways! It was true to size, just follow your measurements on the size chart." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99 (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 33 colors and patterns).
