    Buzzfeed / Christine Forbes, Madewell

    Promising review: "This dress is so much more gorgeous in person. It's super light and swingy, but fully lined so it isn't sheer (I'd still probably wear neutral undergarments though). It's a loose, relaxed fit, but it has some great details that make it cute rather than frumpy — the buttons on the front, the sleeves, the V-neck. It hits above the knee but still at a very comfortable length — no worries about flashing anyone. I was a bit nervous that the elastic on the sleeves would be tight or uncomfortable, but it fit perfectly. You could easily dress this down or up with the right accessories." —BOSTON1988

    Get it from Madewell for $59.99 (originally $118; available in women's sizes XXS–L).

    3. A leopard-print dress to wear when you want to look like an extra in Sex and the City. It's got a drawstring waist and balloon sleeves becoming of a literal goddess.

    4. A knitted sweater dress you'll love to dress up for work or down for dinner. Made of ultra-soft merino wool, it's on the looser-fitting side, which is why I love wearing it.

    Promising review: "I love this sweater dress, so comfortable. It’s stylish and versatile and of good quality. A great staple, classic design. It has a more oversized fit, but I am tall and I appreciate the sleeve length." —Angie M

    5. A funky tie-front dress, because you'll be pleasantly surprised by how phenomenal your tig ol' biddies look. Reviewers said they got mad compliments when wearing this. Try some fashion tape if you're worried about spillage.

    Reviewer wearing the yellow dress

    Promising review: "I absolutely adore this dress. I ordered in red and once it came in, I immediately ordered it in navy as well. Comfy and adjustable, I highly recommend for a cute casual spring/summer dress." —Ashley

    A model wearing the dress

    Promising review: "It is a really pretty dress. Fits fine maybe a bit big on me so maybe size down if you like it more fitted. You can dress it professional with heels and a cardigan or casual with sneakers. I had a super-minor problem with the dress and Quince sent me a brand-new one; they sent it so fast I didn’t even see the email from them. 10/10 customer service. Just order the dress you won’t regret." —Evelyn S.

    8. A knit sweater dress thick enough to keep you warm without becoming too hot. Don't let the cut fool you, the dress is pretty stretchy.,

    Promising review: "This dress fits PERFECT. I am always skeptical with Amazon clothing purchases. This dress is an extremely soft (almost cashmere feeling) sweater material. It hugs the curves so nice! Snug, but definitely not tight." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $30.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and in 24 colors).

    9. A boho loose embroidered cotton V-neck dress so comfortable, you'll want to wear it around the house all the time.

    Reviewer wearing blue dress

    Promising review: "There's a lining that extends to approximately the upper thigh and a few hook and eyes for a better fit in the upper bodice, or breast area. They give allowance for different breast sizes, which can make ALL the difference! The bodice also leaves an option for a cami to show through, or to adjust the amount of skin you're comfortable with showing. I ordered my normal size and it fit SO perfectly! Love the long flowing sleeves and the embroidery, it's done tastefully. Can't wait to wear it this spring and summer!" —MyaChelle

    Get it from Amazon for $38.99 (available in sizes S–XXL and in four colors).

    10. A comfy-cozy sweatshirt dress that's a match made in heaven for people who are too lazy to get dressed but want to feel cute. If you buy all your sweatshirts oversized, just buy this dress instead.

    A reviewer wearing the sweatshirt dress

    Promising review: "Let me start by clearing up questions I had when placing an order. This is thick, soft sweatshirt material! Not at all what I am used to getting when ordering 'sweatshirt' items on Amazon, this is heavy duty! I gave it 5 stars (even though mine is too large) because it is a great-quality item. It is exactly as described! If you are looking for a dress-cut heavy sweatshirt, this is it. I normally wear an extra small in everything. Reading the reviews saying this is so short/small I crossed my fingers I could pull off a small. I was wrong, of course; you can see by the pics attached. I am keeping this item, I hope I can shrink it a little since it is partially cotton. If I can't [shrink it], oh well. It will be my new sleep/lounge-around-the-house outfit. It's so very comfy, not only can I not send it back I will probably order more if I can shrink it up a little bit. The reviews saying this is just a long sweatshirt or a potato sack are not accurate at all. Hopefully in the pictures you can see the cut of the sweatshirt dress. We aren't all the same size or same proportions, of course it will fit us all a little differently. That's not the fault of the dress or the makers of the dress. It is large on me, as I knew it could be when ordering. It's true to size; if you have long legs it will be short on you." —Andrea Jacobs

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99 (available in women's sizes S–XL and 12 colors).

    11. A sleeveless T-shirt dress because what's more cozy than not wearing pants? Nothing.

    A reviewer wearing their dress

    Here's why my coworker loves this dress: 

    "I personally have this dress in about seven colors and can attest to how amazing it is. You can pair it with a jean jacket, an oversized cardigan, or just wear it as is for a cute daily look." —Heather Braga

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and 24 colors).

    12. A fun flutter-sleeve dress to bring out the Disney princess that lies within. A few twirls in this dress and all of a sudden, you're Belle from Beauty and the Beast.,

    Promising review: "This dress is so nice for the price it's kind of a steal. Fits so well, soft, nice material. Beautiful and classy. As one reviewer mentioned it can look a little broad in the shoulders, but it's also part of the vintage flutter-sleeve style. Such a bargain." —Kaela

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and 28 colors).

    13. A loose T-shirt dress made of a jersey-esque fabric. The hem is uneven, which you might love if you're pregnant.

    A woman wearing the dress

    Promising review: "I LOVE this dress! The fit is very flattering and the material is the softest thing I've ever had on my body! Planning on ordering this in a couple more colors now. I am 5'7" and 198 lbs and I ordered a size large." —R. G.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in women's sizes XS–XXL and 44 colors).

    14. A skater dress that's truly ready for whatever because it has long- and short-sleeve options and cute buttons. And the best part? It has pockets 😏.,

    Note: The buttons aren't functional; they're just for design.

    Promising review: "I love this dress! I can wear it to work, dress it up a little or just keep it casual. And I have a large chest and I don’t have to worry about the buttons popping open because they’re not functional and that’s the best part!! I’m ordering another one in a different color." —Jennifer

    Get it from Amazon for $25.69+ (available in sizes S–XXL and 43 designs, including long-sleeve options).

    15. A staple denim dress because it's one of the most fun, versatile fabrics out there. Complete your denim-on-denim look with this chic piece.

    A reviewer wearing the dress

    Promising review: "This is a really nice weight light denim dress/shirt. I love the frayed edges it’s a great boho look. I normally wear a large but I ordered two sizes up (2XL) because I am busty and 5'8" and I was worried it would be too short on me. I am glad I ordered up two sizes because of the bust area. I think the XL would have been tight in the bust. Honestly, I didn’t even think I would wear it as a dress; I was wanting to wear with leggings with a tank top. I just wanted it to cover my rear. But this is long enough that I can wear it as a dress, surprise! I would order up if you are busty and taller if you want it longer. I love this shirt/dress. You can add a belt, wear it with flats, or even heels.

    "Don’t hesitate it’s a great versatile dress/shirt. My recommendation is to order up a size or up two sizes if you are busty and taller." —An Artists with a purpose

    Get it from Amazon for $32.99+ (available in women's sizes S–XXL and in five colors).

    16. A tie-dye maxi dress so wonderful, you can wear it around the house on lazy Saturdays or even on walks with bae. You'll look like a 10/10 either way.,

    Promising review: "This dress is like a soft T-shirt, and the colors on the blue-and-white tie-dye were beautiful and vibrant. The sleeves were nice and stretchy and weren’t too tight. It honestly feels as comfy as a nightgown. I can’t wait to wear it more; I tried it on and it was so comfy I left it on to run errands! It’s great with flat sandals, and I just ordered another color because I love it so much. Say hello to my new summer uniform!"Lauren L.

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and in 38 colors/prints).

    17. A form-fitting satin dress that's perfect for date night. It looks absolutely fabulous and comes in lovely jewel tones.

    Get it from JLuxLabel for $50 (available in women's sizes S–XL and seven colors).

    18. A simple knotted dress for people who like timelessly elegant silhouettes. Try pairing it with a dangly necklace to add some drama.


    Promising review: "Occasion I was in need of a modest dress and wasn’t too concerned which much other than fit and comfort. I was so pleasantly surprised with this [dress]. The fabric has a perfect weight, which I believe could be good in any season. I felt confident and beautiful. This is a very versatile piece for any wardrobe!" —Marcy R.

    Get it from Eloquii for $29.99 (originally $99.95; available in women's sizes 14–28 and two colors).

    19. A sultry maxi dress to make you look like a total babe. You can play with this dress since the waistband is ultra stretchy and the top half is transparent.

    Kin by Kristine

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this dress! My only comment is I wish the black underskirt was just a couple of inches longer, but I still love it. I even wore this dress while healing from a second-degree sunburn and it didn't aggravate my sunburn at all!" —Dinah Greenfield

    Lucy and Yak

    Promising review: "Love my new pinafore, the color is great and goes with lots of tops already in my wardrobe and the material is lovely and soft. It had its first wear last weekend and I got lots of compliments. The fit was great and I love the pockets. I’m a UK size 10 so I bought the small in the midi length and it fits perfectly. I’d love it even more if there was a longer version too." —Jackie

    22. A long-sleeved ruffle dress ideal for holiday parties both mandatory and discretionary.

    A reviewer wearing the dress

    JSYK, reviewers said this runs small so you should consider sizing up.

    Promising review: "So glad I read previous reviews and ordered a large. I'm 5'4" and normally wear a dress size 6. The large fit great. I'm bigger in the hips than bust, so the wrap/tie was handy. I wore this to a holiday company dinner." —Suzann Kidd

    Get it from Amazon for $24.98+ (available in women's sizes S–XL and 14 colors).

    23. A casual dress because we all need at least one to grab when the doorbell rings unexpectedly.

    A reviewer wearing the dress

    Promising review: "I honestly didn't know how it would fit, I expected Chinese sizes so I ordered a size up...I should have stuck with my normal size....and if you like things more fitted, then a size smaller would also work. That being said, the fit is very forgiving on the body. The length does go down to my knees. Paired with leggings and boots, and a chunky scarf, this is the perfect fall top. The material is not as thin as some others that are sold on Amazon, but it's not very thick either. I'd suggest a padded bra (or the scarf idea) for modesty. It won't keep you very warm..but it's great for layering a cami underneath or a vest/cardigan over it. I bought two colors, black and gray. I like the darker colors in these material types, they are very versatile. You won't regret this purchase!" —MamaMia

    Get it from Amazon for $15.35+ (available in women's sizes S–5X and 36 colors).
