    1. A polka-dot shift dress to really ~round~ out your wardrobe.,

    Promising review: "I purchased this dress when I was around 5-6 months pregnant, as it looked like something absolutely adorable to wear! I am a petite frame and tend to wear a S/M but ordered the large to make room for my bump. It fit just as expected with a nice fit at the shoulders, but enough room in the waist for my growing figure. Note that this is a true shift dress, so there is no waist shape to it and has that tunic flow. It was also lined so nothing was see-through. I am hoping to be able to wear it again after my pregnancy, as the length was perfect for my height and I can totally see myself wearing this to work with cute flats." —Claudia Beatrice Menendez

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in sizes XS–L and five colors).

    4. A snuggly long sweatshirt that's about as formal as I ever plan to be in 2020.


    Promising review: "Welcome to comfort city. If you're looking for a form-fitting little black dress, this is not for you. If you're looking to wear what I believe clouds made into clothing would feel like, well then you have arrived my friend. It's a nice sweatshirt material made for Goldilocks — not too thin and not too thick. It's perfect for the gal that takes her bra off as soon as she gets home. This is also nice to run errands or take road trip in. Just add some leggings, cute boots, and a scarf and it'll look like you kind of tried for the day but feel like you're wearing PJs. AND IT HAS POCKETS. POCKETS!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes S-XXXL and in 27 colors, some with a V-neck).

    5. A short-sleeve cutie pretty much made to be worn with riding boots and a denim jacket.


    Promising review: "Better than I expected it would be! The fit is perfect, and the material is lightweight but still sturdy enough so the dress drapes and falls perfectly. I love the way it swings when you walk. It truly is a perfect year-round dress in style, material, and color (navy), and I will probably be ordering another." —ckern

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and 31 colors).

    6. A profesh-looking pencil dress to show everyone you mean business.


    Promising review: "I usually wear a size 16 and the XXL fit perfectly. This dress is sewn from a soft, medium-weight knit with stretch, and the dress is tailored to fit the shape of your body (but not like a glove, so not tight). The dress is modest, professional looking and comfortable." —Tricia

    Promising review: "This dress is gorgeous! I have received tons of compliments from random strangers, and I've only worn it about three times. It's ridiculously comfortable and the pockets are excellent. I mean, pockets in a dress are one of the greatest things ever, but I feel like most of the time I can't actually use them. It creates an unsightly bulge. That is not the case with this dress. Because it's so open and flowy, I can stash a chapstick or a pen in the pockets without it showing at all. The color is also true to the Amazon photo, though of course, depending on lighting, sometimes it looks more golden yellow and other times more orange. Either way, it's going to be perfect for fall." —Jessica

    13. A flowwwwy, long sleeve number perfect for your next cold weather photoshoot.,

    Promising review: "Love this dress! It's perfect for the fall weather. Pair it with jeans or cute thigh highs. For reference, I'm 5'1 and 120 pounds. The dress hits me perfectly just above the knees. Fabric is soft and flowy. I've already washed it and just laid it flat to dry. Love this dress so much — I am ordering it in another color!" —Yee Jensen

    See BuzzFeed's full write-up of this swing dress.

    Promising review: "I love it. It’s perfect. I ordered it as a professional dress for my speech competitions, but I wanted something with a kick. The length is perfect on me. I wear it with a bright green watch to add something extra that pops. The pockets are great, and I can put something in them without them looking awkward. I can fit my index cards in one pocket perfectly and you can’t even tell they're in there. The fabric is very comfortable and if it’s too big on you, it's 65% cotton so you could shrink it a bit with a warm wash cycle." —Kindle Customer

Not only does it fit, it's the perfect length too, hitting right above the knee. I got so many compliments on this dress! It shows off my curves without being uncomfortably tight.

    Promising review: "Okay so I don't usually write reviews, but this dress deserves one so here I am. I flipping love this dress. I have a weird body type with a longer torso than most dresses accommodate, so it is very rare for me to find a fit-and-flare dress that actually flatters my hourglass shape. This dress makes me look amazing. Furthermore, the fabric rocks. It is lightweight stretchy cotton, unlike a lot of the weird spandexy material that most cheap amazon dresses are made of. If you want a light, no-hassle dress that you can throw on when you're already 10 minutes late to class, then this is your dress. It is definitely one of those closet staples that I'm going to have for the next decade." —kate hannon

    With dresses like these, you'll probably never wear pants ever again.
