    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).

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I LOVE this dress!!! I honestly wasn’t expecting much for the price, but I’m actually ordering more colors. I wanted something cute but also cool for these extremely hot summer days and this is perfect! It’s a bit loose, but that’s what I wanted." —Sarah

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 34 colors).

    4. A V-neck slit dress raved about for genuinely living up to the ~maxi length~ description — if you're 5'7 and above, reviews swear that this pretty number will actually skim past your ankles.

    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).

    5. A convertible mini so you can reenact that trend from Aquamarine and not fail miserably (#ifyouknowyouknow). This is cleverly designed with an adjustable tied ribbon strap which means this one purchase = a billion dresses in one.

    Free People

    Promising review:"This is the best dress. It’s fun to play with, great coverage (I’m a 32DDD so if that’s a concern do not let it be), and the color is amazing. It's universal, dress it up and dress it down." —AnnaMaeWagner

    Get it from Free People for $68 (available in sizes XS-XL and in two colors).

    6. An off-shoulder maxi dress designed with the phrase wardrobe staple, the kind of number you can wear to weddings and birthday dinners *or* for a stroll along a beach boardwalk.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I bought this dress with the intent of wearing it once to a rehearsal dinner. Little did I know I would end up wearing it ALL summer long! It is opaque, breezy, comfortable, and fit like a glove with some movement. I got endless compliments and no one could believe I found it on Amazon! I would recommend this to anyone looking for a classy, simple, long term closet sample." —SCram

    Get it from Amazon for $19.68+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 19 colors).

    7. A pleated midi dress that can truly fall anywhere in the fancy-to-casual spectrum depending on the accessories you decide to fish out of your closet. Pair it with sneaks for date night, heels for that small wedding ceremony, tomayto, tomahto, you'll look fabulous.

    Promising review: "This dress is a winner for me as it fits just right. It is simple yet beautiful and can be dressed up or down. The color I picked is a true wine/burgundy and flows just the way I want it to." —Ola

    Get it from Amazon for $37.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in five colors).

    8. 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.

    amazon.com

    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).

    9. A ribbed shirtdress for the inconsistent temps we experience every false spring, when outfit choices can easily swap from parkas to tanks overnight. The longer sleeves and shorter length keep you warm *and* cool at the same time, you know?

    Loft

    Get it from Loft for $79.50 (available in sizes XXS-XXL and petite sizes).

    10. A bodycon pencil dress that looks so. damn. chic. And while the importance of owning the perfect LBD is no secret, it's likely you've had the same one for...decades (#guilty). I believe it's time we both level up.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this dress. Simple, classy, and professional. It molds to my body in all the right ways, and it wasn't too long. It can be worn with a nice necklace to spruce it up, and flats and/or pumps. The material is also versatile enough so that it can be worn year round, all you need is a pair of stockings or tights, but the dress will work either way. I plan to order more colors." —LadyLestat

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in sizes L-5X and in 10 colors).

    11. A surplice maxi dress that won't feel like a surplus of fabric when humidity and sweat glands start to kick into overdrive. In fact, the material feels lightweight and breathable despite the longer length — it even makes for the perfect pregnancy and post-bebe 'fit.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Wow. I am blown away by this dress. I am six months pregnant in South Georgia so I was looking for something comfortable and easy to wear in this heat while pregnant. This dress is SO soft. Like the softest dress I own! I like that I can also use it as an easy access breastfeeding dress after the baby comes." —Libby Henkels

    Get it from Amazon for $26.90 (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 15 colors).

    12. 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.

    amazon.com

    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).

    13. A flare dress equipped with pockets which means it's a winner right off the bat. Throw in a no-frills style and adjustable straps for a customized fit and ding ding ding! We've got ourselves a winner.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I don't even know where to begin...this dress is fantastic. Good quality, travels well, comfortable, and affordable – what more do you need? It can be a little short. I also bought this in navy and it is definitely shorter than the floral. I wish there were more/different patterns and colors available because I want them all. These are my go-to dresses now. Two of the best purchases I ever made." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $16.98+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 45 colors).

    14. A surplice dress available in solid colors and a snazzy leopard print, the latter of which I personally intend on purchasing in preparation for my eventual Disney vacay (inspired by the below reviewer).

    Promising review: "Very happy with this dress. I have washed and hung to dry, the fabric dried well without additional care. Lightweight and comfortable material. Bought in two colors because I liked it so much." —Nicole Francis

    Get it from Amazon for $19.32+ (available in sizes 1X–6X and four styles).

    Psst: this item is included in Prime Wardrobe so you can give it a trial run if you're a member!

    15. A belted shirtdress so chic, I'd be personally offended if you didn't start a fashion blog immediately after wearing it.

    Nasty Gal

    Get it from Nasty Gal for $27 (originally $60, available in sizes 12–20 and in two colors).

    16. A cutout maxi I fully intend on wearing whilst padding around my 400-square foot living room, a sneaky way to trick my mind into thinking I'm yachting in the Mediterranean instead of....working from my couch.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Wow I already feel my blue light headache disappearing.

    Promising review: "HELLO BEAUTIFUL! Wow this dress is absolutely beautiful! Material is on the thinner side but perfect for a night out in the summer! Planning to wear this to my trip to Mexico! It fits as expected, and the back is self-tie and adjustable to your liking. The dress has slits on both sides, but not super high." —Jackie Ruiz

    Get it from Amazon for $30.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in six colors).

    17. A cowl-neck slip dress begging to be layered with a turtleneck bodysuit and combat boots for a trendy-but-casual 'fit that exudes major The Craft vibes. We don't care if it's spring! Spooky season is ever present in our hearts!

    model wearing the brown dress with butterflies
    Urban Outfitters

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $49 (available in sizes XXS-XL and in nine colors).

    18. An A-line swing dress ideal for any sort of activity due to how comfy *and* stylishly simple it is: running errands, lounging on the couch, outdoor dinners, you get the idea.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is a very soft, comfortable, multipurpose dress. I am not currently leaving the house and this is perfect for wearing around the house and even sleeping in. I can also wear it out if I have to run an errand. I have bought multiple of this same dress." —Tia

    Get it from Amazon for $10.75+ (available in sizes 1X-6X and in four colors).

    19. A ruched bodycon you will get so 👏 much 👏 use 👏 out of. The style is perfect for fancy *or* casual settings, the olive hue is unique but still neutral enough that it won't clash with your shoes, and the price is just right.

    model wearing the green olive dress
    Forever 21

    Get it from Forever 21 for $24.99 (available in sizes 0X-3X).

    20. 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, which means you can just as easily wear this as a bride *or* a wedding guest).

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    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 complements 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 36 colors).

    21. An open back midi dress making me want to frolic barefoot in a garden. Alas, I don't have a garden but maybe wearing this dress will revitalize my dying flowers and make my apartment feel like a plant nursery.

    model wearing the white and pink floral dress
    AFRM

    Get it from AFRM or Nordstrom for $138 (available in sizes XS-3X and two colors).

    22. 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.

    amazon.com

    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).

    23. 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*

    amazon.com

    27. An off-shoulder tiered maxi dress that'll have you in ~tiers~ as soon as you tear open the shipping bag. I'm pretty sure this justifies Shakespeare's annoying love-at-first-sight trope.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Was thoroughly impressed by this dress. I was considering the same exact one on a popular women’s clothing site but found this one for $40 cheaper. It was comfortable, decent quality, and fit as expected. I wore to a wedding and received many compliments." —Tiffany J.

    28. 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.

    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 $28.49+ (available in sizes S–2X and seven colors).

    34. 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.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    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).

    35. A puff elbow sleeve number available in a vibrant orange hue that is truly nutrition for the soul. I'm pretty sure vitamin C is now coursing through my veins just for looking at this dress on a laptop screen.
