    1. A tie-waist bat-wing sweater dress that's perfect for the transition season. This hip-hugging, lightweight knit mini is comfy and chic, people won't be able to NOT talk about how great it is.

    Promising review: "OMG... I absolutely LOVE this dress. I received so many compliments. The material is of great quality, nice and thick. It’s definitely not cheap at all. I wore it off my shoulder but it will keep sliding back up. If you want the dress to be solely off the shoulder then cut the strap off the back. I’m leaving mine on bc I want the option of wearing it both on my shoulders and off." —Heather H.

    Price: $32.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and in 13 colors).

    2. A black puff-sleeve minidress because everyone needs a little black dress. Or a little green dress, or a little blue dress, or any of the other seven colors this cutie comes in. Wear it casually with sneakers, or style it for a night out with a pump or boot!

    Promising review: "It’s super cute, comfortable, and I received a ton of compliments on it. I ordered a medium but could have gone with a small. Ordering another color, because I liked it so much." —Amber Nelson

    Price: $35.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and in 10 colors). 

    3. A V-neck open-back dress for a little flirty flair and ultra-feminine silhouette that will have everyone asking "where did you get that?!" This dress is fitted in the waist and has a gathered A-line skirt, for a silhouette that everyone will love.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Absolutely stunning dress. I bought the white one with the blue and orange small flowers. It fits great. I ordered a medium even though I'm between a small/medium. The dress has a hidden zipper and elegant buttons on the top, the open back adds a sexiness to it, yet still so elegant. It's not too short, right above the knees, and the built-in lining underneath helps with the sheerness. Love this dress and can't wait to wear for summer events." —Amazonian

    Price: $15.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and in 34 styles).

    4. A wrap dress with a ruffle hem and long sleeves that's perfect to take you from work to play. This mini has a structured bodice, balancing out the unstructured skirt beautifully. It also comes in a short sleeve version!

    Promising review: "I really love this dress! I followed another review that said to order a size up... definitely order a size up. It fit great when it came. Received many compliments. Might order in another color." —Janelle M

    Price: $24.98+ (available in sizes S–XL and in 15 colors).

    5. A V-neck mock wrap dress with a tiered skirt, because this one is a real stunner. A deep v will create long lines in the dress's top area, while the layered skirt is creating dimension and movement around the bottom. Sounds like a perfect pair to me!

    Promising review: "This dress will make you feel so incredibly confident!! Flirty, bouncy, and perfect for the fall wedding I'm about to attend, the sash really accentuates my waist and the V neckline adds a sexy elegance to it all. BUY THIS NOWWWW!" —Morgan

    Price: $37.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and in 29 colors)

    6. An elegant cashmere swing dress that says "tea time." And at said tea time, all the ladies who lunch will be whispering about how amazing your dress is. That's the kind of gossip sesh we can get behind...

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This dress is every bit as nice as it looks in the pictures and feels like wearing a big comfy blanket. I bought the dark green and wore it for the first time today and got so many compliments. I noticed in the reviews that some people had issues with piling and wear and tear of the fabric. As cashmere is pretty delicate, I’m planning to hand wash and lay flat to dry and fold to store (instead of hang). I expect this will extend the life of the dress considerably." —Lexi Nelson

    Price: $39+ (available in sizes S–L and in five colors).

    7. A knit midi dress for those days when you want to look put together without any effort. A knit midi is an easy year-round staple — just throw it on over a swimsuit, style it for the office with an oversized blazer, or toss it on to run to the grocery store with your errand tote in hand. Imagine: someone stopping you in the produce section to compliment your dress...

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is such a beautiful knit dress. I needed it for a night where it was around 65 degrees and it was perfect. Not too hot but warm enough to not need a jacket. It's form fitting, but not tight, essentially just skimming the body. I'm 5'4 so it hit right above my ankles and looked like a maxi which is exactly what I was hoping for. The knit material was thick and soft. Fits TTS. I highly recommend." —Heathernes

    Price: $49.90+ (available in sizes XXS–5XL and in six colors)

    8. A ruffle-sleeved skater dress that is a classic staple with a twist. This will surely become your go-to dress for any occasion and trust us — no one will even question why you're outfit repeating.

    Promising review: "The dress is very well made. The fabric is really nice, soft, and stretchy. It fits perfectly. Extremely happy with the purchase. Wore it to a holiday party and got hundreds of compliments. ❤️" —Nishat

    Price: $29.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and in 20 colors).

    9. A ruched one-shoulder mini, because this baby deserves to be shown off. Between the great range of colors and the figure-hugging fabric, this dress is ready for a night out on the town. Cue the high-pitched squeals from your friends when they see you in this.

    Promising review: "I ordered this dress for my birthday party and it was an absolute hit. I was very impressed with the material. I wore shape wear under it and the ruching hid any visible lines. I will say it was shorter than I expected but that may be because a bigger size wouldn't have hurt. Its a great party dress and the right amount of flashy/formal! I would recommend this one for sure." —Amazon customer

    Price: $34.99 (available in sizes XS–XL and 25 colors)

    10. A ruffled smocked bodice midi dress in a bold color that you can't help but stop to stare at! This dress will have all eyes on you and make you feel like a royal.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "So soft! The top is opaque, but the bottom is a teeny bit sheer — I just wore nude shorts underneath and it was fine, a slip would have been even better. Fits perfectly, looks absolutely adorable, and gets so many compliments. I'm considering wearing it for engagement photos, weather depending!" —Morgan

    Price: $29.99 (available in sizes S–XL and in five colors).

    11. A body-con midi with a tulip hem for a "work hard, play harder" look. It's fitted throughout the bodice and hips, with a little kick flare at the bottom.

    Promising review: "Playful , unique dress. Good quality. Wore to a wedding. It was fitting, but not too tight. Recommend!" —R

    Price: $38.99+ (available in sizes XS–3XL and in 35 colors)

    12. A ribbed midi dress with ribbon straps that's sure to bring in a few wows. This minimalist bodycon number is trendy but timeless, making it the perfect addition to your wardrobe. The cotton is cool in the summer, yet heavy enough to keep its shape after multiple wears. And you can adjust the straps as you need to!

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "I ordered this dress as part of the Drop and I LOVE it. The dress hit at my lower shin and there’s a tasteful side slit. The straps can be unlooped and tied however you please. Great quality." —Aubri

    Price: $49.50 (available in sizes XXS–3XL)

    13. A ruched bust mini dress with adjustable straps, because according to reviews, this piece is where sexy meets comfortable. And that is a winning combination, my friends. I imagine Gen Z'ers wearing this dress to brunch on a Saturday with super chunky sneakers and crewneck socks, while the rest of us dress it up with a heeled sandal and statement earrings (sorry, not all of us can pull off those sneakers!). Either way, bring on the compliments.

    Promising review: "Sexy and comfortable at the same time. I love that it’s not transparent so I can wear it anywhere I want! I love this dress so much, I bought two different colors and I’m going to buy more! Definitely recommend it!" —Pamela Rodriguez

    Price: $15.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and in 13 colors)

    14. A boho, tiered A-line maxi dress with a tie-neck that will make everyone who sees you in it jealous that they're not as comfortable as you are. The top can be left untied at the neck or tied into a sweet bow, depending on how much coverage you'd like. The skirt just swings around after the waistband, for a carefree, effortless look that'll make you excited to get dressed.

    Price: $40.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and in 12 colors)

    15. A keyhole midi to fill the trendy sundress void in your closet — And the hole in your heart previously filled with unstylish clothing. The cutout at the bust creates a perfect sweetheart neckline over an A-line skirt. It's ready for baby showers, birthday parties, cocktail hour, or brunch.

    Promising review: "Beautiful, comfortable dress! Beautiful yellow color with functional buttons so you can leave some unbuttoned. Built-in slip so not see through. The adjustable straps, stretchy back, and tie front allow for a great fit!." —SurgingandMusic

    Price: $28.04+ (available in sizes S–XL and in 43 colors)

    16. A satin cowl neck midi that will stun at all of your upcoming events! This beauty has adjustable straps for customizable coverage and a high slit on the left leg for a little va-va-voom. This one pretty much speaks for itself, but I (and reviewers) can also guarantee ample compliments.

    Price: $28.40+ (available in sizes XXS–5XL and in 21 colors)

    18. An off-the-shoulder mini dress with a tied back that's super girly and sweet. It's the perfect summer dress! The elastic waistband allows for a comfy fit, and the elastic on the armholes gives you the option to wear the sleeves off or over the shoulder. We love a nonrestrictive-yet-stylish dress.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Fit perfectly! I always get so many compliments on this dress. I’ll be wearing this dress until the bitter end 🤣" —Kelsey

    Price: $39.99 (available in sizes XS–XXL and in 13 colors)

    19. An asymmetrical deep V dress for all the summer weddings you have lined up. The construction of the dress really cinches the waist, while the asymmetric hem modernizes the piece. Who wants a boring old straight hem?! Okay, plenty of people do, but this design is such an intriguing spin on a consistently used silhouette.

    20. A bodycon wrap dress – you can move and groove in this stunner while feeling secure and covered.

Yes, I am killing it, thanks for asking.

    Promising review: "This dress is a SHOWSTOPPER. I have a larger chest and was worried about the top squeezing the girls but WOW it fits perfectly! I ended up pinning the sleeves a little so they would sit more open (not shown), but I got so many compliments on this beautiful dress." —KG

    Price: $37.99+ (available in sizes 0/2–22 Plus)

    22. A sexy bodycon tank dress for you minimalists and trend-lovers out there. The silhouette, square neckline, and short hem are sexy but functional for the ultimate fashion moment.

    Promising review: "This dress is so cute, and perfect for dressing up or down. I got the dress in the rose color. It’s a little oversized / more like a shift dress, but this is exactly the fit I was going for. The embroidery is so pretty and really well stitched. I’ve been wearing it with everything from sandal heels for a nice night out to converse for everyday." —MarinaLea

    Price: $29.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and six colors)

    Price: $38.99 (available in sizes S–XL and in nine colors)

    26. A ruched and ruffled mini dress with a smocked bust for a cute boho-chic look. The square neckline and mid-thigh length are sophisticated, while the puff sleeves and layered skirt add a super feminine touch. It helps that the color selection is gorgeous.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "I love how this dress looks on me and my curves, I've gotten tons of compliments. I highly recommend!♡" —Shanice

    Price: $37.99 (available in sizes XS–XXL and 11 colors)

    27. And my personal favorite: a cutout maxi with an amazing back because this trendy piece will get everyone talking. It's giving "influencer status," but you're way cooler than that, so even better. While it's ankle-length on the model, most of us are not blessed with this height, so luckily, this poly/cotton blend skirt is very easy to hem — which bodes well for my 4'11" self, because I just added this to my cart.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "It was very stretchy, but fits just as expected. I got so many compliments on it when I wore it for my vacation in Nassau. I would definitely recommend this dress for a hot and sexy beach vacation!" —Sweet Winter Rose
