    1. A belted sweater dress because the weather outside is slowly on its way to becoming frightful, and what better way to celebrate the sun disappearing by 5 p.m. than by wearing this cozy-yet-also-dressy piece?,

    Promising review: "This dress is perfect! It fits like a glove and the tie really emphasizes your waist. It’s snug but in a perfect way. I bought this as an option for a holiday party and although I chose a different outfit, I still decided to keep this over returning it because it’s so cute and flattering! Also the color and material are great for year round wear. I want more!" —Anonymous

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99 (available in sizes S–XL and in 18 colors).

    2. A mini deep-V dress featuring leopard and sleeves to remind us that autumn. has. arrived, despite the lingering summer humidity. This 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).

    3. A V-neck slit dress for a look that screams "I tried" but requires merely 10 seconds of effort. Throw this on, reach for a fedora or fasten a messy bun, and et voilà.,

    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).

    4. A boho-inspired mini dress ideal for spring, summer, and fall. Add a denim jacket and combat boots for a look that says "Halloween is nigh as evident by my outerwear and footwear choice."

    reviewer wearing the mini dress

    Promising review: "It's long enough as a tunic top for me to wear with leggings. It's super cute and is a breathable fabric. I live in Texas where the heat is sweltering so I'd only wear this out to dinner during the summer months but during the cooler months, this will be adorable to wear with leggings." —Dagogirl

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in sizes 0X–4X and in eight colors).

    5. A sleeved bodycon 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: "This dress is Amazon gold. I own this in several different colors and it’s a must have. The best fabric... it’s a stretchy material that is just amazing." —Aya Reimer 

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and in 17 colors). 

    6. A turtleneck sweater dress for a chic way to feel as if you're *wearing* that ultra-soft throw blanket you purchased in three colors from TJ Maxx. The rib-knit material is truly a joy.,

    Promising review: "This is WAY BETTER than I thought it would be when I purchased it. First of all, the size is perfect! It's absolutely an oversized sweater, and the material is great, and I personally love the pockets! I wore with some simple leggings and was just in heaven at how comfortable I was. Anyway, y'all, BUY THIS SWEATER!" —Kristen Saunders

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

    7. 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.

    reviewer wearing the black midi dress

    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).

    8. A velvet dress so luxe, it'll look like you just spent the entirety of several paychecks on this one designer item, but surprise! You didn't. This gorgeous number is surprisingly way more affordable than anyone would assume (and the stretch fabric is extremely comfortable to boot).

    reviewer wearing the blue V-neck dress

    Promising review: "I am RARELY able to buy something online two days before an event, throw it on, wear no shapers under it, and go. But. This. Dress. Is. Different. I love it so much! I wish I had more holiday parties to go to so I could own it in every color! I’m a solid 18, this hugged every curve, was flattering, and was nicely lined. I don't have an hourglass figure, but this made me feel like Jessica Rabbit." —sheeshbri

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99+ (available in sizes 14–24 and in 15 colors).

    9. A fleece hoodie dress that I intend on buying/hibernating in all chilly season long. 🎶 So long, farewell, gotta add this to my Amazon cart. 🎶,

    Promising review: "This dress is very comfortable and cozy for the winter. I am tall and plus size. It falls halfway down my calves. It’s very thick and nicely made. I just throw it on to run errands and look cute while doing it. It’s as comfy as a pair of sweatpants but way more stylish. I love it and will be buying other colors." —Theresa Casanova

    Get it from Amazon for $37.99 (available in sizes S–3X and in 10 colors).

    10. A tiered dress with so many 'fit possibilities that my head is spinning. Rest assured that regardless of if you wear this with OTK boots or white sneakers, this loose-fitting bebe is comfy, comfy, comfy, and did we mention, comfy?,

    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 are perfect. If you want more length and/or are between sizes, I’d recommend sizing up." —Taylor

    Get it from Amazon for $23.95+ (available in sizes S–XXL and in 26 colors).

    11. A batwing-sleeve dress that rivals your favorite blanket for softness. Reviewers swear by the below for both comfort *and* style; just add some stilettos and jewelry to zhuzh it up for RSVP-requiring occasions.

    reviewer wearing a grey off shoulder dress

    Promising review: "Super cute, comfortable dress. Not too thick, but still warm. Comes with a little snap button and thread you can sew on the front chest area, in case you need to be sure nothing comes popping out!" —jessica 

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and in 13 colors). 

    12. A belted tunic dress you can consider multiple outfits in one purchase due to how versatile it is. Wear it by its lonesome *or* add leggings and a faux-leather vest for a look that, well, looks completely new.,

    Promising review: "I LOVE this dress/tunic. Fits perfectly. Nice enough to wear to work (teacher) and comfy. The flannel is not too thick and perfect on cool days for a tank underneath as another layer." —you rock

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

    13. A tiered maxi with the word "layering" down to a science. Leather motos, denim jackets, plaid button-downs — the outerwear world is your oyster when combined with the neutral dress below.

    reviewer wearing the mushroom colored dress

    Promising review: "Love this dress. It fits perfectly and the fabric is soft and comfortable. Love that it has pockets! It’s the perfect summer dress but also great for fall with a jacket." —KB 

    Get it from Amazon for $59.90 (available in sizes XXS–3X and in three colors). 

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

    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 $29.50 (available in sizes XS–XXL and in 15 colors).

    15. A polka-dot number best accessorized with bottomless mimosas served at your next at-home brunch, overpriced avocado toast and a poached egg not required (but highly recommended).,

    Promising review: "Bought this for my Caribbean cruise in December, and I have worn it multiple times since then. It is comfortable, breathable — looks fantastic. I wear it alone with sandals or with tights and boots for winter." —Lua

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and 12 colors).

    16. 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.

    reviewer wearing the green belted dress

    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 six colors).

    17. A T-shirt dress with 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 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 $28.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and 16 colors).

    18. A belted bodycon that makes the word ~swanky~ come to mind. Essentially, an addition like this to your fall wardrobe has the same energy as popping champagne or munching on caviar.,

    Promising review: "This dress was a last minute purchase for my nephews wedding. Everything about it was perfect! The compliments I received the entire night were amazing." —Soledad/Fidel

    Get it from Amazon for $35.99+ (available in sizes L–5X and in 12 colors).

    19. A high-low dress about to become your plus one for all 97 of the weddings you RSVP'd to, each one that was cancelled and rescheduled for this upcoming autumn. We hope you enjoy every single cocktail and Venetian hour to the fullest.

    reviewer wearing green dress

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and in 22 colors).

    20. A square-neck midi ideal for frolicking through pumpkin patches 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 $31.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and in 15 colors).

    21. An off-shoulder tiered maxi dress that I'm pretty sure I'd shed several ~tiers~ over because of how gorgeous it is. Ignore me. I've just chopped a few onions.

    reviewer wearing the white midi dress

    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.

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

    22. 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).,

    Promising review: "LOVE, LOVE, LOVE. I ordered this dress and will never regret it. It was beautiful and light. It was 100 degrees 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 $44.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and in 26 colors).

    23. An off-shoulder bardot mini because no, you do not want to go out tonight, but yes, you did RSVP last week. 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

    Promising review: "This dress was perfect for my anniversary dinner. It was super comfortable and hugged all of my curves. I got tons of compliments while wearing this too! I loved it!" —Joslyn Dorsey 

    Get it from Amazon for $32.99+ (available in sizes 0X–5X and in 12 colors). 

    24. A halter neck polka dot dress serving major "Blair Waldorf attends a wedding" vibes. All we'll have to do is conjure up a penthouse apartment and a partnership with Chuck Bass to make the identity official.,

    Promising review: "This purchase completely exceeded my expectations. Dress is well made and SOFT. It’s also has a slip underneath, which is awesome, no fear of undies showing! Waist is elastic. Comes with a detachable belt so it can be worn with or without." —MsMGR

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 28 colors).

    25. A sleeved bodycon because is there anything more autumnal than a high-neck, ribbed, and sleeved dress rolled into one? I think not. Throw in an orange hue and OTK boots, and a phantom scent of pumpkin spice will follow you to the ends of the earth.

    reviewer wearing orange dress with over-the-knee boots

    Promising review: "This is the perfect dress for autumn photos and everyday wear! So comfortable and fits beautifully! This is a closet staple you need." —Sharon S. 

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and in nine colors). 

    26. 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-plus-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).

    27. 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 $14.39+ (available in sizes XS–5X and in 44 colors).

    28. 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 through the pumpkin patch when layered with a denim jacket.

    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).
