    3. A criss-cross t-shirt dress that'll be super cute for any casual event this summer.


    Promising review: "This is a great summer dress. I purchased it for my sister. It doesn't hang like a potato sack. It's a comfortable skim the body summer dress fit with shape. It hits her at mid-thigh. Constructed and sewed well. The criss-cross in the back is lined up perfectly. If I order a different color in small. Great dress and would definitely recommend." —CoCo

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes XS–2XL and 10 colors/patterns).

    4. A smocked skater dress with flowy bell sleeves perfect for any bright, sunny, and airy day.


    Promising review: "It fits like a dream! Even the off-the-shoulder feature doesn't budge. I played lawn games in it and everything! Lightweight and perfect for summer parties. All kinds of embarrassing photos were taken of me at the Memorial Day party I wore it to, so thank goodness my outfit was cute even if I was sunburnt and doing weird things with my face and hands because I'm no model." —CLARAJ

    Get it from Torrid for $24.49 (originally $64.90, available in sizes M–6X).

    5. A t-shirt swing dress you can wear from work to a dinner party with friends.


    Promising review: "This dress is super comfy, adorable, and perfect for all year round! The ruffles add something extra to an otherwise classic t-shirt dress. I typically buy a small in most of my clothing, but based on reviews and not wanting the length to be awkward, I went for an extra small. I’m really glad I did! I highly suggest this dress, it’s a really wonderful quality from what I can see and feel currently." —Spandana Maitra

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99 (available in sizes XS–3XL and 10 colors/patterns).

    6. A spaghetti-strap dress for walking around Europe or a tropical beach party.


    Promising review: "I absolutely love the pattern. It’s thinner than I expected. I didn’t read details before purchasing and assumed it was more of cotton material. That being said, it’s a great summer dress. It’s got a bit of stretch to it. The dress stretches all over so order down if your debating between sizes." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $3.99+ (available in sizes S–3XL and 32 colors/patterns).

    7. A halter dress to wear to work with a cardigan or just brunch with friends.


    Promising review: "I love my dress. Recent reviews are true about the sizing. I usually order large but I ordered a medium. I was skeptical about the size I ordered so when it arrived I tried it on and it did fit me just right. The length of the dress is just right on my shin. The cloth is thin so it's best to wear nude color undergarments. I hand washed it and hang dry my dress and so far it didn't shrink. I prefer to do it this way so I don't have to iron it." —JC Clarin

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99 (available in sizes M–2XL).

    8. A button-front dress that'll be your favorite in your closet.


    Get it from Loft for $89.50 (available in sizes 14–26).

    9. A shirred maxi dress with tie straps for that Instagrammable rosé picnic in the park.


    Get it from Asos for $40.50 (originally $51, available in sizes 0–14).

    10. A button-front dress that'll go with any accessory you have in your closet.


    Promising review: "Love the dress! Runs a little large, though. I'd order DOWN a size! I love finding a casual summer dress that isn't super short but also isn't floor-length long. It's really hard to find something that's cute and not showing your entire behind these days. This dress does the job; it's a good length. It also has pockets, ladies!" —Proper Bostonian

    Get it from Amazon for $7.69+ (available in sizes S–2XL and 12 colors/patterns).

    Promising review: "Love, love this dress! It fits really nicely, is light for summer, and the pockets are a huge bonus. Mine is working great as a maternity dress due to the high waist. The length is great for me as a busy mom of a toddler too — not too short! And the red color is bright and pretty." —Douglas Griebenaw

    Promising review: "Pretty! I just ordered another one and have two more in my cart. The cleavage is not too much and the wrap is pretty and drapes nicely. The hidden button & button/hole on the side is sewn well and keeps the dress in place and the tie looks nice with plenty of lengths. Love this dress! It’s beautiful flows — great for work or an evening out." —Theresa S.

    17. A striped mini collard dress for a flirty and stylish vibe you can wear on vacation or even just running errands.


    Promising review: "The dress fits true to size! It looks absolutely beautiful. I wore skin colored undergarments because it's see through if you wear anything dark underneath. Other than that the material is wonderful and I loved the fit. If you want it to be looser you could always size up. Buy it!!! You’ll love it." —Beatriz Fernandez

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in sizes XS–L and five colors).

    18. A sleeveless textured dress with a lightweight feel that'll move with the summer breeze.

    19. A pleated dress for a comfortable look and feel you can wear no matter where you're going.
