    2. A flowy-but-fitted ruffled wrap dress because a formfitting dress doesn't have to skimp out on frills. This one has the perfect amount of ruffles.

    Promising review: "The go-to dress. With a nice-weight fabric and a front tie, this very comfortable T-shirt dress is kicked up a notch into a decent-looking outfit. I love how I can just throw it on, add earrings and a pair of flats or heels, and I get compliments for being nicely dressed. I love the pockets! Whenever I take a trip, this easily packable dress comes with me. I bought gray and blue, and then this year I bought green. All are true to color." —PAM

    Get it from Amazon for $36.99 (available in sizes S–XL and 24 colors).

    Promising review: “This dress is fire!! I tried it on and immediately felt like a goddess! This dress is beautiful and hits my curves beautifully. I cannot wait to wear it out and bring all the boys to the yard. Don’t think about it, just click and ship.” —Chaunie

    13. A sleek plaid bodycon dress that one reviewer notes gives off major Mad Men vibes — and we couldn't agree more. This dress looks like you're ready for anything fall can possibly throw at you.

    Promising review: "This is one of my absolute favorite work dresses of all time! I feel like Joan from Mad Men every time I wear it. I get compliments every time. This dress looks even better with a skinny belt, and the mock turtleneck collar is an elegant detail that pulls it all together. The fabric is stretchy enough to hug your curves, but not cheap looking. It's thin enough to be comfortable, lightweight, and breathable, while still being opaque and good quality. Oh, and it doesn't wrinkle!! I'm usually a size US 14/16, and the 2XL fits me like a glove." —Rebecca

    Get it from Amazon for $32.99+ (available in sizes XS–5XL Plus and 13 colors).

    14. An open-back dress with tons of flair your friends will be begging you for the link.

    15. A knit dress that's flowy and cute and looks lovely paired with boots. This high-waisted sweater dress will be perfect for fall and can transition from work to after-work activities effortlessly.

    Promising review: "I am 5’3” and the dress falls a little below mid thigh, which I like because it is work/office appropriate. It's super comfortable, the material isn’t too thin or too thick, and it has a nice stretch to it. It also has decent sized pockets." —Melanie Rose Venditto

    Get it from Amazon for $17.50+ (available in sizes S–XL and nine colors).

    16. An easy breezy tiered swing dress so effortless you won't have to think twice about what you're going to wear to work on any given morning. Just toss this dress on with a pair of loafers and you're ready to go.

    Reviewers love this dress, but recommend sizing down if you're in between sizes!

    Promising reviews: "Dress fits as expected. Great quality, vibrant colors. Long enough to wear to work. Does not need ironing before wearing." —Amazon Customer

    "This dress is absolute perfection! I purchased for a Texas game day brunch — good burnt orange is hard to come by. The fit was impeccable — flowy without looking ill-fitting, and hit me just above the knee (I'm 5'3"). I wore with cowboy boots and loved that I could chase my toddler around while still looking cute in this dress. The fabric is just thick enough to lay smooth and not cling, while not being heavy. Not see through at all. The balloon sleeves are EVERYTHING. Going to buy in more colors right now!" —FitGirlInFlight

    Get it from Amazon for $20.28+ (available in sizes S–XXL and 44 colors/styles).

    17. A ruffled sleeve pleated-skirt dress just begging to be twirled in. Grab your fave handbag and a pair of booties and you're set.

    Promising review: "LOVE THIS DRESS! I bought it for a wedding and got so many compliments. It fit great. I probably could have gone down a size because the top was a little loose. But it’s very flowy. The material is thin but thick enough that it’s not see-through." —Megan

    Get it from Amazon for $44.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and in 11 colors/styles).

    18. A flowy ruffled-hem dress your washing machine will be tired of seeing because of how often you'll end up wearing (and washing) it.

    Psst — this is available on Prime Try Before You Buy so you can give it a whirl before committing if you're a Prime member.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this dress — it fits perfectly and it's so adorable. The first day I wore it I got so many compliments and it was so comfortable. It was nice to wear as a dress or even a long shirt with leggings. The color is really cute too. I definitely recommend it and will probably buy more in different colors!" —Jasmine Ball

    Get it from Amazon for $21.69+ (available in sizes S–XL and in 18 colors/styles).
