    Promising review: "I really do love this dress. (I got the black one with red floral embroidery.) I've worn it to dinner and on a cruise. I can probably wear it to a wedding or a beach party. You can dress it up with heels or wear flat sandals with it. I even wore it with my Chucks and it looked adorable. No accessorizing needed, but you can throw on a simple necklace and go. So easy! (Quality also seems good. Thick material = no bra necessary for me! Yay!!)" —Poupee Folle

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and in 11 styles).

    7. A high-low dress so if you walk down the runway anytime soon (hey — listen, you never know ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ) you'll be good as gold. Time to work that catwalk in true Tyra Banks fashion.


    Some reviews suggest it is a tad low cut, so if you'd like it a bit more closed, you can safety pin it or get it altered at your local tailor!

    Promising review: "I wore this dress to a wedding and it was a hit. The top is a bit revealing and tough to safety pin, but I made it work. My boyfriend loved the dress so much, his favorite Lulus purchase of mine to date. I'm a tall gal and this dress was great." —Andrea E.

    Get it from Lulus for $98 (available in sizes XS–XL and four colors/patterns).

    8. A gorgeous floral spaghetti-strap midi dress featuring a set of pockets. OMG — did we just say pockets? Yep, yep we did. 

    Check out BuzzFeed's full write-up on this dress.

    Promising review: "I'm one of those people who never writes reviews. I found this dress through a BuzzFeed article and couldn't resist the white sunflower one. The material is stretchy and just fits your body so well. I didn't have any problems with it being see-through while I was wearing light-gray underwear. The length is cute. The buttons are fake, so they stay uniform all the way down. It's stretchy across the back of the bodice, so bigger-chested women would love this. My mom and I have completely different body types and the size large fits us both amazingly! I'm definitely going to try to order as many prints as I can!" —Courtney Clark

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and in 35 colors and prints).

    9. A floral wrap dress since you can't go wrong with the iconic, classic wrap silhouette and a floral pattern. A truly unstoppable pair.

    Promising review: "I searched through about 300 'cocktail dress with long sleeves' options before finding this gem! The material is great — it stands up to wrinkles/long car rides and doesn’t cling at all. The cut is (really) low so I got some skin/fabric tape to close it up. This is a large; a medium would probably have been too short. I love it!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in sizes S–3XL and in 16 prints).

    10. A vintage floral long-sleeved midi dress to transition you into more fall-geared fashion that'll be perf for chillier summer (or fall) nights. No denim jacket needed. 

    Promising review: "I purchased this as a last-minute dress for a wedding. It was snug above the waist, but not snug enough where I was uncomfortable or have no movement. It fit perfectly!! I’m 5'3" and weigh 160 lbs. The medium was perfect for me! The material is not cheap, it’s a nice, soft material, and you can have confidence it won’t fall apart in the washer or anything! Love it. I’ll probably buy another one in a different pattern." —Liz Garcia

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and 14 patterns).

    11. A super playful layered mini dress since you've been dying to wear some of your coveted summer accessories, and this dress is the perfect canvas.

    Promising review: "Perfect spring dress or hot summer day around the house. Shipping was very fast. Material is cool and the dress is cut a little bit larger than true-to-size but it’s fine for the style." —MamaToTwo

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and in 18 colors).

    12. A tie-front cutie if you're looking for a new addition to your closet that says "let's pack a bag and jet set off to the French Riviera". 

    The straps are adjustable. Also, note that the tie is just for show on some styles, but on others it's real!

    Promising review: "This dress was the best online purchase of a dress in my life!!!!! It’s a perfect fit! It’s beautiful!!! Very flowy and I am sooooo shocked that this purchase was so successful, because usually clothes don't fit me when I buy them online." —Mariam

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and in 32 colors and prints).

    13. A stunning ruffled option that'll offer gorgeous movement (hello twirling) and voluminous body ody ody ody when you take to the dance floor. Honestly — the more ruffles the better in my book.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Promising review: "I can’t say enough good things about this dress! I love it!! The fit is amazing. The material is lovely. The top, front, and bottom of the dress are lined with a light material, which is perfect. You still get the flowy feel. I just want to twirl around in this dress. My young adult daughter loves it as well!! I couldn’t be happier. It will be my go-to dress this summer" —Carla J. Reid

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and in six colors).

    14. A romantic smocked midi for a sweet shoulder moment that can be effortlessly paired with a denim jacket. I'm all for an off-the-shoulder look so this will be added to my cart immediately

    Reviewers say it generally runs true to size but a bit on the looser side.

    Promising review: "This dress was made for me. Listen, guys, saying this dress is beautiful is such an understatement. Listen, it's the middle of the night and I'm feeling myself. Just wait till it's morning; the looks I'm serving all of you! Update: So I ended up buying three different colors of these dresses. I just loved them all. It's like the designer thought of me when they made these dresses! The material feels great on my body. The upper part is stretchy and fits very well." —Olive Bukuru

    Get it from Amazon for $32.99 (available in sizes XS–XL and in eight colors).

    15. A classic T-shirt dress because if you don't already own one, it's time to change that. These are so comfy cozy and are so easy to throw on for any occasion. They even work over swimsuits.

    Promising review: "This is what you call a plus-size-friendly dress! This material is my best friend and the cut is perfection. I wore this over my bathing suit at the beach, but honestly it can be dressed up or down. Great dress, great quality. It’s a must-buy!!!!" —Alicia G.

    Get it from Amazon for $33.90 (available in sizes 1X–6X and in five colors and prints).

    16. A puff-sleeve floral frock with a vintage flair that looks like it stepped right off the set of Mad Men. This is giving ~major~ Peggy Olson energy.

    This China-based shop stocks all kinds of awesome, sustainable linen dresses and other clothing!

    Get it from Linennaive on Etsy for $71.10 (available in sizes XS–4XL).

    17. A plunge-neck go-to with a cute front tie. Grab a sun hat, a cross-body, some sunnies, and hit the boardwalk.


    Promising review: "I loved this dress. It was thick, good quality, comfortable and fit as expected. I’ve already worn it twice and will wear it much more this summer. Wrinkles come out really easily with steamer." —Tyler Woodruff

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and 35 patterns).

    18. A fun fit-and-flare since you should own at least one ONE dress option that can be styled with your go-to sneaks. 

    Promising review: "These dresses are fantastic! And this is coming from someone who has always hated wearing dresses. The material is soft and not too heavy, the cut is great, and the POCKETS! I've bought more than one already in the more youthful patterns, and I just adore them. They're comfortable, but I feel completely pretty." —Thatgirl

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99+ (available in sizes 14–26 and in 29 styles, including some with long sleeves).

    19. ruched bodice sundress with gorgeous button detailing that looks like you spent major bucks (and time) digging for that perf vintage wardrobe piece. 

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this dress! It looks just as pictured. The material is of good quality and thick enough not to be see-through, yet not too heavy, and it’s very well-made. I am 5’5” tall and this dress comes to just below my knees. Would definitely purchase again." —Dee Alvarez

    Get it from Amazon for $21.90+ (available in sizes S–XL and in 22 colors and prints).

    20. A faux-wrap midi dress you don't have to worry about popping open in the bust area (this has happened to me far too many times) since it's...not a real wrap (shhhhhhh). 

    Promising review: "I bought this dress for a professional conference in a few weeks. The dress looks perfect. It goes to my knees and the chest area is very modest and appropriate for my conference, but if I throw on a statement necklace it could just as easily be something I wear to a musical or nice event. The fabric doesn’t stick to anything, and I’m pleasantly surprised at how thick the material is. I don't need a slip or undershirt." —Skye C.

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in sizes 14–26 and in 25 styles, including some with three-quarter sleeves).

    21. A front-zip style with long sleeves that can be worn rolled down or up depending on the temp that day. Feeling a little warm? Roll them up! A little on the chilly side? Roll them down.

    Promising review: "I love this shirt dress. It is very summer appropriate - the material is light, the fit perfect. Most certainly recommend it to anyone looking for a summer dress that can be dressed up or down. I do think this dress is versatile enough to be worn with boots and a denim jacket for fall." —AngieA786

    Get it from Torrid for $69.50 (available in sizes 10–30). 

    22. A ruffle midi that'll have everyone ~green with envy~ at how chic it looks.

    Promising review: "This dress is definitely one of the best dresses I've purchased from Madewell. It's so easy to throw on, yet the print, style, and color are so beautiful that I instantly feel put together when I put it on. There are also pockets!" —Awgigi

    Get it from Madewell for $108 (available in sizes XXS–XL).
