    1. A mini deep-V dress featuring florals and pastel colors to remind us that spring. has. sprung, despite cold temps that still require a parka (at least here in NYC). It features an open back which means you'll probably want to go sans underwire.,

    Promising review: "This is my favorite piece of clothing I’ve bought on Amazon (and I’ve bought a lot!). I got the green, and it is a gorgeous seafoam type color. It doesn’t have a lot of stretch, so make sure you order the correct size. Hits right above the knee but definitely covered my backside plenty. I love this dress and will be ordering it in more colors!" —Megan Kate Haugh

    Get it from Amazon for $11.98+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 34 colors).

    2. A sleeveless swing mini for impromptu bottomless brunches with le pals, grocery store runs, fancier dinners (simply add in some heels), etcetera. Versatility is this dress's strongest suit.

    the green dress

    Promising review: "This dress is so comfortable! The material is stretchy and soft and does not cling to your body. I originally got this dress because I needed something roomy after my shoulder surgery. I've already ordered another one in a different color. I really recommend this dress. It's fantastic!" —Susan Kirby

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in sizes 1X–4X and four colors).

    3. A one-shoulder maxi featuring a lovely floral print that demands to be worn to all the outdoor brunches you're about to attend. Spring has sprung, folks, and your wardrobe should reflect that., Amazon

    Promising review: "I’m often skeptical about buying dresses on Amazon, but this dress is darling! I’m 5’6” and 123 lbs (thin) and size small fits perfectly and ties great. Fabric gives some at the bust if you need a bit more room. Fabric is flowy and feels great. Super cute for summer or beach!" —Andrea M

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

    4. A puff sleeve baby doll dress meant to be worn to the most glamorous event of your week, aka drinking pre-made mimosas from pitchers and eating fried chicken and waffles with your pals.

    reviewer wearing the dress

    Get it from Amazon for $35.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and 10 colors).

    5. A off-the-shoulder midi with puffed sleeves and a smocked bust for frolicking through vineyards in an ethereal "I was a fairy in a past life" kind of way. This is an easy one-and-done outfit that requires less effort than matching a top to your favorite leggings. Plus, the breezy material will feel lovely against your skin.,

    Promising review: "I wore the orange one to my cousin's fall wedding and I didn't want to take it off. It is SO COMFORTABLE! The material is nice and I am considering buying another color. It can get a bit wrinkly, but I just threw it in the dryer for a bit and shook it out and it touched up nicely. Buy it! You'll feel like a character from a Jane Austen novel." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99 (available in sizes XS–XL and in 15 colors).

    6. A knit cutout dress that is. the. best. thing you'll purchase ahead of warm weather seasons. Dare I say, I'll... actually want to make plans going forward? Just for an excuse to wear this gem?

    reviewer wearing the tan colored dress

    Promising review: "10 stars. Absolute best dress I’ve purchased on Amazon! Amazing fit. Beautiful, perfect neutral. Hugs all my curves, not see-through, and super comfortable. Makes me feel like a goddess. I’m in love. My hubs took a double take when I put it on. Grab this dress!" —T.C.

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and 19 colors).

    reviewer wearing the black dress

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this dress! It’s loose, lightweight but not sheer, and great for summer. I wanted something very comfortable for chasing around the kids I babysit in NYC humidity—the slits on both sides make it really easy to move around in without being to risqué. I also love the adjustable straps." —Kat Y.

    Get it from Amazon for $23.85+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 28 colors).

    8. A halter maxi dress with a smocked bodice, ruffled bottom, an open back worthy of drool, and adjustable back straps that mean a bra may not be necessary (SO LONG, PAINFUL UNDERWIRE). Let's all do this together: *swoon*,

    Get it from Amazon for $33.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and in 26 colors).

    9. A cowl mini dress that works perfectly in any season. Simply drape it over a turtleneck, tights, and boots on frigid days; wear it on its own with your favorite sandals (and perhaps a pedicure) during the warmer months.

    model wearing the dress

    Get it from Forever 21 for $16.09 (available in sizes 0X–3X and also in orange). 

    10. A long-sleeve bodycon dress featuring drawstring ruching on each side, meaning that the length of this dress is — gird your loins — completely adjustable. Attempt to contain your excitement until you reach the end of this post, please.,

    Promising review: "Legit bought this is so many colors. It’s such a go-to simple staple to have in the closet. The material is so nice and the drawstrings actually function (no funky stitching). Sometimes I’ll pull the dress all the way up with the drawstrings and style it as a shirt." —Patience

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and in 17 colors). 

    11. A T-shirt dress with a tie-waist and a 1,000% guarantee of turning you into a fashion blogger stat, no significant Instagram following required. There's just something about a tie waist — amirite, folks?

    reviewer wearing the taupe-colored dress

    Promising review: "The go-to dress. With a nice-weight stretchy T-shirt fabric that is not see-through, with pockets and a front tie, this very comfortable dress is everything I could ask for. I love how I can just throw it on, add earrings and a pair of flats or heels, and get compliments for being nicely dressed! I like the way the sleeves are finished off with a band instead of a simple hem, and that the collar is a little wider than a standard crew neck so I don't feel choked. Whenever I take a trip, this easily packable dress comes with me. The ones I bought have been true to color except dusty pink, which isn't pink but sort of a dull clay color. Blue is my favorite. Wish they had more summery colors like true pink, lemon and spring green. The dress runs true to size and doesn't shrink in a cold wash and mild dry." —PAM

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and 15 colors).

    12. A maxi dress featuring the crème de la crème of fashion designs: pockets. Throw in super soft fabric and you've got yourself a recipe for perfection.,

    Promising review: "Buy this dress!!! This is perfect !! It is casual yet can be dressed up. The dress hit the floor when I had on 2-inch wedges. It doesn’t cling but it does drape nicely over your curves. My husband loved it so much that I ordered four different colors in a size down so that I can wear them with flats." —Tia Blackwell

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes 14–26 and 18 colors).

    13. A lace V-neck dress for anyone who has had a Pinterest board titled "Boho Wedding" for the past decade. This is stunning, lightweight, and screams mason jar drinking glasses (plus is also available in a ton of hues).

    reviewer wearing the black dress

    Promising review: "LOVE, LOVE, LOVE. I ordered this dress and will never regret it. It was beautiful and light. It was 100 degrees F at our wedding and I was able to stay pretty comfortable in this dress. I have gotten so many compliments on it! If you want a dress that's gorgeous and doesn't break the bank and is beyond comfortable, this is it." —Summer

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and in five colors and eight styles).

    14. A tiered baby doll mini taking a page from the Disney 365 book (if you know you know) because it can truly be worn any day of the damn year. We love a piece that doesn't need to be vacuum-sealed with the change of season.,

    Promising review: "I love this dress! It fit perfectly! I am 5'10 and struggle finding dresses that are not 'too short.' This was a perfect length. The bottom half of the dress is lined, which makes it completely opaque. It is a thin material that makes steaming extremely easy and fast. I worn this to an Atlanta Braves game in 100+ degree weather and was able to keep cool. Perfect addition to my wardrobe." —karmen howard

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99 (available in sizes S–2XL and six colors).

    reviewer wearing the red patterned dress

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this dress! I am tall and it’s so hard to find anything that is a true maxi”length for my 5’11” frame. This dress comes to my ankles, flows beautifully, and the true wrap style is great. If you are tall you should definitely buy this dress!" —Jami

    Get it from Amazon for $32.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 21 colors).

    16. A halter skort dress that will make the word "crisp" come to mind, thanks to a blazer-like design that looks both professional and trendy. It's even available in petite and tall lengths to ensure the perfect fit.

    reviewer wearing navy and white dotted dress

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 11 colors).

    21. A baby doll dress for folks who have rummaged through their entire wardrobe to realize that, wow, your entire style revolves around black, off-black, and gray. Let's spring-ify that ever so slightly by way of pastels.

    reviewer wearing the blue dress with embroidery

    Promising review: "I rarely write reviews...especially for a dress that costs less than $35. However, this one is awesome and everyone needs to buy it. I got a ton of compliments when I wore this to work, and then decided to wear it on a Hinge date that night. Buy this, wear it to work, wear it on lame dates, wear it to the coffee shop. Wear it everywhere. It's cute and comfy." —Angela Paglino

    22. A mini dress with a tried-and-true wrap silhouette, which means you'll be able to customize the waistline for that perfectly tailored ~like a glove~ fit. We love clothes that feel like they were made just for us, amirite?,

    Promising review: "I was initially so confused by this beautiful dress as I have never had a true wrap dress!!! Then luckily I re-checked the listing here and saw the seller’s very helpful instructions for how to tie a wrap dress and now realize that my usual size L here fits PERFECTLY. I highly recommend both this gorgeous dress and, for wrap dress newbies like me, following the very helpful guide the seller has posted!" —Mother of LEGOS

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 16 colors).

    23. An off-shoulder Bardot mini because no, you do not want to go out tonight, but yes, you did make these plans last week and you simply can't cancel again. Presenting at least one less headache: this dress. It goes with every shoe and accessory, plus the material is comfortable and doesn't feel restrictive (despite the fact that it's a bodycon).

    reviewer wearing the black off-shoulder dress

    25. A V-neck maxi dress for an easy, breezy, ~doesn't require pants~ outfit you'll want to slip on for and and every occasion. This is comfy enough to lounge in, stylish enough to 'gram in, so cue the Hannah Montana soundtrack because 'tis the best of both worlds.

    reviewer wearing maxi dress in black

    27. A stretchy crewneck mini for a spring- and summer-approved extension of your favorite tee (although you can wear it any season with the right layers, tbh). Raise your hand if you're ready to ditch the WFH joggers and give your shins a chance to breathe.

    reviewer wearing the black dress with sneakers

    Promising review: "This dress is so good that I’ve bought it in three different colors! I’m one of those people who find a dress or shirt that they love and have to buy it in multiple colors! This dress is definitely one of those! I wore it to a Carrie Underwood concert recently and it was perfect for the occasion, then I wore it for a girls' trip in California and it was great for that too. It’s a super versatile and comfy dress to wear." —Julie K.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 25 colors).

    28. A flowy maxi that's just inspired me to scour Airbnb for a staycation in the middle of nowhere. I can picture it already: surrounded by nature, drinking coffee in a semi-modern cabin with floor-to-ceiling windows...all while wearing this.

    reviewer wearing the long blue dress

    Promising review: "When the temps are so hot and humid that you can't stand it, hop into this attractive little dress. It hangs from the shoulders and flows to mid-calf or so depending on your height. It is cool and comfortable but still looks pretty and stylish. I have two and I wouldn't mind another. There are lots of prints and colors. They wash and dry and don't need ironing. My daughters each have two as well. The price is amazing and the quality is great, light but not see through." —lizacat

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in sizes XS-5X and in 39 colors).

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this dress — so much so that I bought it in three different colors. It’s so comfortable and the length and flow is perfect. If you want more length and/or are between sizes, I’d recommend sizing up." —Taylor

    30. A pocketed jersey T-shirt dress purposely designed with a longer hemline, which means your undergarments won't be on the brink of exposure with every sudden gust of wind.

    reviewer wearing the black dress

    Promising review: "This is my new go-to brand for extra-comfy, relaxed & uber soft clothing. So far every piece is well-made, very soft, and the perfect length to wear as a dress or as a tunic; you can even sleep in these, they're that comfortable. This jersey cotton is a nice, cooling fabric, perfect for the hot Texas summers. Very affordably priced, quick shipping and easy returns/exchanges." —Claire Dunway

    Get it from Amazon for $18.90 (available in sizes XS-XL and in 12 colors).
