    Promising review: "Omg!!! I did not expect this dress to be as perfect as it is (nothing is ever the same in a post or on the rack, am I right?). The material is so interesting, it’s thick but thin. I think it’ll keep me warm while still having room to breathe. The belt that you tie, HOLY CRAP, makes me look incredible! I want to look and feel fabulous all at once and this dress DOES THAT AND MORE!! I ordered the dark green one to go with some super cute shoes my mom got me for Christmas and I cannot wait to go out somewhere in it! If you’re thinking about it and not sure, just pull the plug and grab it. You will not regret it." —LORA

    Promising review: "I don't normally write reviews for clothes off of Amazon, but good lordy, I am so in love with this dress, I just HAVE to!! I am 5'5" and weigh approximately 150 pounds. I ordered a medium in one of the maxi-length dresses. I am IN LOVE and am wishing it was warmer weather so I could wear it out and about! First, it is a true wrap dress in that you feed one side through the other, therefore you can adjust how tight or loose it is. Modest? Show some cleavage? Up to you! 😍 Second, it is the PERFECT length for me. In all, I freaking love this dress! And was not prompted in any way to provide a review but felt so compelled when I tried it on! If you are on the fence like I have been for over a year, GET IT!" —Jess

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and 23 colors).

    9. A sleeveless V-neck cocktail dress to help you achieve an effortlessly classy look your date will think you spent hundreds on – but plot twist, this number costs less than $40.,

    Promising review: "This might be THE perfect dress! I immediately loved this dress. So many pros, can't think of a con! PROS: It's easy to throw on like a t-shirt! It's stretchy with no zipper. I was not wrinkled on arrival; seems like the fabric won't wrinkle so no ironing is needed. It just feels so good! Like I would want to wear it all the time. This would be a complete no-brainer for traveling to a wedding or something since it doesn't wrinkle and there is no fuss about it. It's so cozy that I can see ordering another in a more subdued and darker color and pairing it with a cropped jacket and scarf and wear to work. It really does feel like you are wearing your lounge-around-the-house clothes. CONS: None?!" — architecture student

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in sizes XS–24 Plus and 32 colors).

    Promising review: "This dress feels like velvet pajamas! It's giving 1930s romance couture and feels like I’m wearing soft and comfy pajamas. Now all I need is somewhere to go!" —Bianca D.

    Get it from Eloquii for $99.95 (available in sizes 14–28 and two colors).

    12. A casual Valentine's Day dress featuring a cold-shoulder T-shirt swing style (with pockets) just crying out to be worn with a statement necklace and booties. Maybe even a hat! Whatever you decide to pair this beauty with, I'm here for it.,

    Promising review: "The dress is super comfy. It's cold where I am now so I wear this with leggings or thick tights, but it will be great in spring and summer. This fabric feels wonderful and flows nicely. I can dress it up with nice shoes and a necklace or wear it for fun and casual. A great addition to my wardrobe!" —Heidi Brant

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in sizes XL–5XL and 16 colors).

    Promising review: "This is one of those finds that will restore your faith after a bunch of bad choices. It runs true to size, is thick, well-cut, and fits nicely. I found my holiday dress, for sure. The color is gorgeous as well, and it slides off the shoulders just beautifully. I will be ordering a black one ASAP, and probably a blue one...omg they're so pretty. Dress it up with heels, or down with leggings and boots, works both ways." —Hailey

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and 15 colors).

    15. A lacy fit and flare pink dress for Valentine's Day from ModCloth you'll be finding excuses to wear time after time – even after your Valentine's Day outing.


    Hello, perfect classic pink dress for Valentine's Day!

    Promising review: "Love this dress. If you like a fit and flare style, this dress is a perfect elevated option. It comes with a slip, which makes things so much easier, and the pattern is perfect to go braless with since the texture of the lace does a great job holding its structure. I would also say this is true to size based on the sizing chart. Very happy!" —Lyndlee

Well, I was looking for a dress that would help me look stylish, chic, and classy. THIS IS THE DRESS! Fits like a glove, but soo comfortable! The material is so soft and not see-through at all. I am so surprised by how much I love this dress. Buy yourself this dress and you will see how good you feel once you put it on!" —S.T.

    Promising review: "Absolutely gorgeous dress!! Came exactly as pictured, and better than anything I’ve bought at a big box retailer in years. Considering how voluminous and dramatic the piece is, it’s about as lightweight as you could ask for a lined semi-formal dress. —Angelina Meehan

    Get it from Mr. Water New York on Etsy for $89 (available in sizes S–XXL).

    20. A super comfy and casual Valentine's Day dress with pockets! Yep, it has pockets. Need I say more?,

I originally ordered it for part of my Mother Nature Halloween costume but I will wear it time and time again. I wore it to work today belted and with a cardigan vest and got SO many compliments! I'm 5'4" and weigh 200 pounds and usually wear a size 14–16. I ordered the XL in army green and could live in this thing!!" —Sarah Sobczak

    Models wearing black and red dresses

    Promising review: "This dress is absolutely beautiful – true to size and surprisingly comfortable. I am 5'4" and weigh approximately 120 pounds and ordered a size 4 and it fit perfectly. The slit is not too high and the dress hits the floor at the perfect length – no need to hem, which is a huge plus. The padding in the chest area is just right so no need to wear a bra. Highly recommend!" —LindsayM123

    Get it from Bloomingdale's for $228 (available in sizes 0–16 and two colors).

    23. An off-the-shoulder high-low cocktail skater dress destined for you to wear in all your Snapchats and Instagram posts. It's too cute *not* to be posted everywhere, tbh.,

    Promising review: "This dress is AMAZING. The fabric is nice and thick but not too warm. I got so many compliments on it. I was able to put my arms up without feeling the dress pull. It was long enough in the back that I didn’t worry about showing booty if I knelt down. Even with the wind outside it stayed down, and I could spin while dancing and not show undies. I will more than likely buy this in several colors!" —Shannon G

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and 10 colors).

    24. A casual Valentine's Day dress option from Pareto made of 100% organic cotton you could *easily* dress up or down no matter where or when you wear it. Pair it with strappy heels, booties, or even some cute sneakers!

    And it's already pre-shrunk! Go ahead and order your regular size without fear of shrinkage after its first wash, my friends. The perfect Valentine's Day outfit has never been so easy to achieve.

    Promising review: "I'm so thrilled with this dress. The design is clearly so thoughtful – it's everything I wanted in a t-shirt dress. It feels really high-quality and I was so pleased to see it arrive in sustainable packaging. This is a dress that will definitely look good with a sneaker, a dressy sandal, or anything in between. The length is so perfect, it's almost too good to be true, and I think it's because the length is actually adjusted appropriately according to the size. I can bend over without having a faux pas, but it's short enough that it still feels fun and flirty. I can't wait to wear this over and over again." —Lauren

    Get it from Pareto for $68 (available in sizes XS–XL and four colors).

    25. A bishop sleeve plunging V-neck bodycon dress for you to just throw on with a pair of cute shoes and consider your Valentine's Day outfit complete!,

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in sizes L–5XL and 18 colors).

    Promising review: "This is a beautiful dress! It's a heavier material and is of excellent quality. I wore it to a wedding and got a ton of compliments. I'm about 5'9" and it covered my heels nicely but didn't drag the ground. I ordered the 4X to make sure the sleeves would be long enough, and it was perfect. I will be ordering in more colors!" —Nicka E.
