    Promising review: "I was worried about ordering this dress because some of the reviews stated that the sizing is weird. I'm 5'4" and around 112lbs, so I ordered an XS, and it's PERFECT! I wore it to my brother's wedding and got so many compliments. The straps being adjustable helped to make it a perfect fit. This is my new go-to dress for weddings and other events. For those asking about what bra to wear, I just wore the silicone petal covers and they worked great with the dress." —Kelsey

There are so many different ways you can wear this dress, from dressing it up for a wedding with some heels to wearing it to a BBQ with some flats or sandals. I will definitely be recommending this dress and wearing it a lot!" —Kelsey

    Promising review: "Material is silky smooth. Think of how silk feels. It hangs nicely, is the perfect length for me. Simple spaghetti straps with a strap tie in the back. It's full — yes, you will spin. Definitely cuter on, pics don't do it justice." —Marlinj

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in sizes S–5X and in 16 colors).

    21. An ornate A-line that's reminiscent of Italian ceramics, IMO. In other words, I'm getting European wedding vibes.  

    Promising review: "More beautiful in person. Lined, gorgeous, vibrant, great material. Perfect dress. Every color to wear a sweater with, so it is an all-season dress. Casual with sandals, or dress it up with heels! The waist is a little big, and the material is very stretchy so do not order bigger than your normal size!!! You can wear this dress anywhere and you will get looks! I like it with a sheer bolero in the royal blue, but a green, yellow, fire engine red, or any color would also look good." —Melanie

    Get it from Amazon for $38.98+ (available in sizes 2–10 and two patterns).

    22. A high-neck cocktail dress that has some gorgeous ruffled details on its sexy hemline. Even if you don't arrive with a date, you'll probably leave with one (if you're looking, that is).
