    1. A color-block midi super easy to just throw on in the morning when you woke up in plenty of time but somehow are still running late because you spent a liiiitle too much time scrolling on your phone again. Whoops!


    Promising review: "I'm 5'10" and have a hard time finding dresses that fit me properly (not short-waisted or too short sleeve). This fits me really well and was flattering and comfortable. You can dress it up or down. I am 155 lb and usually buy a 10 or 12, but the medium fit generously." —wendalh

    Get it from Anthropologie for $148 (available in sizes XS-XL, XS-XL Petite, and 1X-3X).

    2. A V-neck spaghetti strap number that will hug your bod and make you feel amazing.,

    Promising review: "Stop reading reviews and buy this dress IMMEDIATELY, but read this first. This dress does not feel like your typical cheap dress from Amazon. This dress FEELS much higher quality than what you could get for $20, and it fits like a dream. I feel like it works for formal-ISH, formal if you're allowed to be formal and sexy. I'm stoked on this purchase. I normally wear a small in real life and a medium in most of what I buy on Amazon, but the extra small fits me perfectly. It's so comfortable, and it looks great. AND IT HAS POCKETS. IF I had to make a complaint, it would be that the top is just barely too thin to be worn without a bra." —AKFS

    Get it from Amazon for $33.92 (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 32 styles).

    3. A ruffle-sleeve number – with this, you won't have a ~ruff~ time saying yes to that friend of a friend's wedding you were invited to because it means you get to wear this beauty again.


    Promising review: "This is the perfect dress to throw on with a pair of boots. It’s flowy and comfortable. I recommend cinching it in with a cute belt to give it a more fitted look. I usually don’t go for ruffles, but the sleeves add a nice touch to a simple polka-dotted dress!" —P. Hall

    Get it from Amazon for $30.99 (available in sizes S-XL and in four colors).

    4. A cape dress to make you feel like even more of a superhero than you already are.,

    Promising review: "This dress was everything! I’m a plus-size woman and generally wear a size 18. I bought a 2XL, and it fits perfectly. The material is very comfortable, even though it was on the cheaper end of the spectrum (which is expected because of the price). It's a beautiful dress, and I recommend it to all looking for an expensive classy dress" —Selena Poole

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99 (available in sizes S-3X and in 15 colors).

    5. A simple midi made out of jersey knit, so you know it's going to basically feel like you're wearing pajamas out in public, which, in my opinion, is the scam of all scams.


    Promising review: "I freaking love this dress! Even though it's a simple black dress, it's so comfortable and it is cut just right for my body. It goes with everything. I prefer to take a more witch-y approach to the styling, and it's just perfect! Can't wait to wear it more in the spring and summer!" —laura

    Get it from ModCloth for $65 (available in sizes XXS-4X and in black and red).

    6. A stunning fit and flare that proves you don't have to sacrifice style if you prefer to dress more modestly.,

    Promising review: "This dress is very comfortable. It fit like a glove. I loved that I could dress it up or down. It could be a light spring dress or a winter dress. I love it" —LMSA

    Get it from Amazon for $36.99 (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 12 styles).

    7. A swing dress perfect to wear on those days when you're not exactly sure if it's going to be warm or cold out (or depending on where you live, maybe it's both).

    Forever 21

    Promising review: "This is a very nice dress. I'm usually a size 2X, but I feel I could have gone a size down. The material is nice, and the dress is comfortable and looks very cute!" —Abby G.

    Get it from Forever 21 for $30.40 (available in sizes 1X-3X).

    8. A polka dot dress to put you so ~on the dot~ of fashion, all your friends will be asking where you got it so they can get their own.,

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

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99 (available in sizes S-XL and in 10 styles).

    9. A faux leather trench that'll cement your status as the fashionista of your friend group (and family and office for that matter). Watch out world, here you come.


    Promising review: "This is a high-quality garment. It is very stylish and so comfortable." —Stacy S.

    Get it from Eloquii for $149.95 (available in sizes 14-28 and in three styles).

    10. A classic wrap dress perfectly designed to hug you your body and make you feel confident. You'll be able to take on whatever the day throws your way when you're wearing this.

    Promising review: "This dress is fantastic. I am a tall and curvy working professional. I needed something easy and comfortable to wear all day. This dress took me through meetings and conferences like a breeze. This fit perfectly, and I received so many compliments. The true wrap style allows for a flattering custom fit and easy to maintain modesty while still looking modern and feminine. This dress is wrinkle-free, easy care. Overall a win!" —Ginger F

    Get it from Amazon for $39 (available in sizes XS-XL and in 23 styles).

    11. A tunic you can wear on its own, or with tights or pants underneath if you want a little more coverage.,

    Promising review: "This is a super cute, simple, fun, and flirty dress. I LOVE it! I bought this dress to wear for a girl's night out at the beach, and it was perfect. It is lightweight and comfortable, and it is easy to dress up or down. I am 5'11", ordered a small, and it was a tiny bit short, but I loved the flowy cut. Definitely recommend." —Laura Cooney

    Get it from Amazon for $25.98 (available in sizes S-XXL and in 29 styles).

    12. A fit and flare to bring a little bit of spring to your wardrobe, even if the weather hasn't decided to yet.

    Old Navy

    Promising review: "This is my favorite dress. I have this dress in a few colors. I wore it through most of my pregnancy since it has good give to it and was so cool and comfortable. And the best part is that unlike my maternity clothes I can still wear it after baby." —Ashley

    Get it from Old Navy for $22 (available in sizes XS-XXL and in four styles).

    13. A bell-sleeve midi so ~adora-bell~ you'll be fielding compliments left and right.


    Promising review: "I wear size 10 (or large) depending on manufacturers. Originally I ordered xl black dress based on my experiences that it tends to run small, but it was like a blanket when I put it on (huge and boxy). But, I loved the style and fabric. So, despite me being lazy, I returned the xl and reordered a medium. Now it is just right (enough roomy or loose fit like the model in the photos). It's very cute yet comfortable and breezy. I love love love the style. It will be nice just as it is in summer, but also great with a cardigan in the spring and fall." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $24.88 (available in sizes S-XL and in black and brown).

    14. A patterned skater dress that basically requires you have an epic adventure while wearing it.,

    Promising review: "This dress is so comfortable. I like the fit and flare style. 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 $19.88 (available in sizes S-XXL and in 32 styles).

    15. A bodycon designed to make you look like you tried really hard when really all you did was roll out of bed and throw on this dress.

    Promising review: "This dress is phenomenal. It's not see-through at all (I did buy black, though), and it is lined. It’s also extremely comfortable. I plan to dress it both up and down either for work or casual outings. I’ll admit I was skeptical, but I definitely won’t be returning this dress. And, as many have stated, it looks much more expensive than what it goes for. I do recommend going with your normal size. I can typically fit into both a S and M, but M is my usual size for most clothing and this dress fit great. Was not too tight at all, I fear a small would have been clinging to me." —KG

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99 (available in sizes S–XL and in eight colors).

    16. A tiered frock that will look just as good over a swimsuit this summer as it will on its own. We love a dress that can do both.

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "I LOVE this dress. It is super comfortable and really cute. It also has pockets, which is a great addition!! Overall, it's a GREAT purchase." —urbanshopper543

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $39 (available in sizes XS-XL and in four colors).

    17. A boho mini dress designed to inspire you to book that tropical vacation you've been eying for months. It's time for some R&R and to rock this number.,

    Promising review: "I LOVE this wrap dress! The material is so soft and comfortable, and the dress is a perfect fit. It accentuates my curves and is super flattering. I always try to find dresses that would be work appropriate and also cute to wear if going out after work and on the weekends, and this fits the bill. It doesn't show too much cleavage and is the perfect length- a few inches above my knee." —Taylor

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in sizes S-XXL and in 22 styles).

    18. A cold-shoulder mini with a subtle yet breathtaking pattern you'll reach for instead of your go-to jeans and a T-shirt.

    Forever 21

    Promising review: "I have this dress in the blue. I got so many compliments on it. It's very comfortable, flowy, and true to size! ❤️" —Whit R.

    Get it from Forever 21 for $35 (available in sizes 1X-3X).

    19. A mermaid style that'll make your confidence level shoot up about 100% when you put it on.,

    Promising review: "I really love this dress. It is very beautiful. It fit just right. I ordered an XL, and I am 203lbs, and I am busty, so the boob area was very comfortable. The dress itself was comfortable!! It did fall a little below my knees, which was a great length. It had a zipper on the side, but I didn’t use it because I didn’t even notice it had a zipper because the dress was stretchy. I will be buying again in other colors. I wore it for a wedding and received many compliments!!!!" —Joevonder Jones

    Get it from Amazon for $37.99 (available in sizes XS-3X and in 39 styles).

    20. A bodycon with a high slit you'll ~essential-ly~ wear all the time, so you might as well add a couple colors to your cart.


    Promising review: "This dress is soft, comfortable, and flattering. It can be dressed up or down, and the fabric is the right amount of thickness. I plan on making this a staple for spring/summer!" —elraepea

    Get it from Nordstrom for $49 (available in sizes XXS-XL in six colors and 1X-4X in black and red).

    21. A tie-dye maxi because tie-dye is back in a big way, and THIS is how you rock it.,

    Promising review: "I love this dress. It's exactly what I was looking for: a maxi with sleeves and pockets. It's a little long but works well with a little heel. I also added a belt to give more shape. It's super cute, soft, and comfortable!" —melissa

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99 (available in sizes XS–XL and in 18 styles).

    22. A long-sleeved dress designed to add a little sparkle and shine to your wardrobe, without going overboard.


    Promising review: "I have this dress in another color, and I loved so I bought it in this color. This dress is gorgeous and comfortable and fits so beautifully. I love it." —Elizabeth

    Get it from ModCloth for $89 (available in sizes XXS-4X).

    23. A versatile A-line dress you'll find yourself grabbing instead of jeans because it's so simple, yet people will think you actually tried.,

    Promising review: "I wore this dress to my uncle’s wedding and got so many compliments on it. My cousin couldn’t believe what I paid, and that I got it from Amazon. I will definitely be buying this dress again in different colors. Ladies, this dress is multifunctional so you can wear it for a more casual setting or dressed up! It’s very flowy so it’s extremely comfortable." —Reese W.

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes XL-3XL and in 29 styles)

    24. A shirtdress so simple and yet stunning, you'll have it in your closet for years because this baby will never go out of style.


    Promising review: "This dress is perfect for work, hanging out, or just running everyday errands. It’s honestly so comfortable! Kinda wanna live in it, kinda wanna put it on display, you feel me?" —Scheeves

    Get it from Everlane for $100 (available in sizes 00-16).

    25. A patterned midi you'll force your friend to take your picture in immediately because this deserves a prominent place in your Insta grid.,

    Promising review: "I love the fit of this dress. The dress conformed to my body in all the right places without being clingy. It is very comfortable, flattering, and fits as expected. I loved the shape of the dress as well as the pattern." —Jose Glas Cevallos

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99 (available in sizes S-XL and in 10 styles).

    26. A puff-sleeve midi I'm pretty sure will be ~poppin~ up in your wardrobe rotation quite frequently.


    Promising review: "I'm so glad I ordered this dress, and it has pockets! The material is lightweight, however, the dress isn't lined and definitely not opaque when held up to direct light (not a concern since the dress is black with a yellow pattern). The sleeves aren't that puffy unless you scrunch them up, but I like pulling the sleeves down to elbow-length (sleeves have elastics). I really love the vintage look of this dress, as well as I feel elegant and comfortable at the same time." —CynthiaTheNonInfluencer

    Get it from Target for $36.99 (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 1X-4X).

    27. A T-shirt dress with pockets (!!!) so you have a place to stash your lipstick and phone when you don't want to carry your whole purse.,

    Promising review: "This dress is so cute. I can’t wait to wear it to work with some booties and a cardigan. It’s super comfortable and has pockets, which I love. It runs a little oversized, but I like it like that. The material is stretchy and soft, also would look great to wear on the weekends with some flats." —reader101

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97 (available in sizes S-3X and in 13 styles).

    28. An off-the-shoulder lace number that'll make you feel like a million bucks every time you wear it.,

    Promising review: "This is my new fav dress! The quality is very nice for the price. The lace is soft and not scratchy at all. The dress is fitted but has a good amount of stretch, so it's comfortable to sit and walk up and down stairs in. The stretch makes the off-the-shoulder cut actually stay off the shoulder and is very comfortable to wear. I wore this to a wedding and danced all night without having to adjust the dress. I received soooo many compliments at the wedding from complete strangers. I felt very beautiful in this dress. I highly recommend this dress." —Shelly V.

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99 (available in sizes XS-XL and in five colors).

    29. A boho-inspired one made with a lightweight fabric, so it's great for super warm summer days when you don't want to start sweating immediately.


    Promising review: "This was a very nice surprise. It flows around the body, has a stretchy waist (with a tie) so it’s super comfortable to wear, in a nice lightweight crinkly fabric, with a very pretty print. The v-neck ended up too low for me, so I wear a cami underneath. I’m a slip wearer, so a half-slip underneath for those wicked sun-shining-through-the-skirt moments. I received compliments the first time I wore it. Great buy for the price! This is a winner!" —elizaduckie

    Get it from Target for $34.99 (available in sizes XS-XXL).

    30. A floral number perfect for brunch with your friends on the first super warm Saturday when it feels great to sit outside and feel the sun on your face. Ahhhh


    Promising review: "This dress is so comfortable, and the way it fits it shows off all the curves in just the right spots. I’m only 4’10, so the dress comes to above my ankles instead of being as short as on the model, but it’s short enough not to need to be hemmed, which is a big plus." —SOUTHERNJOY104

    Get it from Torrid for $48.65 (available in sizes M-6X).

    31. A maxi dress you can wear all summer long and in the fall and spring too with a super cute jean jacket.,

    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 $27.99 (available in sizes 14-26 and in 28 styles).

    32. And a slipdress – I can't ~lie-me~ about it, I'll be dreaming about this for years to come.


    Promising review: "I love this dress. It can be easily dressed up or down. I wore this to a wedding with some strap sandal block heels and got a lot of compliments. Then the following week, I put on a pair of sneakers for a casual date and still felt so appropriate. It's so comfortable! I'm usually a size 8 in Reformation. I'm around 5'7 and 150lbs and the slit is very high. I have a small bust, so I don't have to wear a bra. When you sit down it definitely rides up so be careful!" —LizzieOH

    Get it from Nordstrom for $76.80+ (available in sizes 0-12).

    Me whenever I realize a dress I bought is not comfortable:
