    1. A super on-trend tie-dye tank top from Free People with a drapey design at the sleeves to let a little extra breeze through so you can avoid the dreaded back sweat.

    Free People

    Promising review: "I debated on ordering this but am so happy I did! Very easy to wear for being casual or working out. I got the tutti frutti combo and love it. I generally wear an extra small but got the small since wanted a loose fit and for it to not be too cropped. The arm holes are big of course but not too big that it looks silly." —Snowbird2_

    Get it from Free People for $58 (available in sizes XS-L and five colors).

    2. A V-neck shirt by Under Armour made with a soft, quick-drying fabric to help mop up any excess sweat on those unbearably hot days. It also features anti-odor technology, so you won't have to worry about any post-workout nastiness if you can't wash it right away.


    Promising review: "Perfect fit! I was not actually expecting to like this shirt so much, but now I can't wait to get other colors. It came out of the package without a wrinkle so it will be perfect for my purposes. In planning for an upcoming trip, I needed to find some shirts for tours in a hot climate. I intend to wash in the bathroom sink and drip dry to keep my luggage as light as possible. This shirt weighs next to nothing, will dry very quickly, and still looks great. While on this trip, we will be doing some cycling so this shirt is a win-win, and is needed for additional cycling after our return home later. My husband has had to similar UA shirt for a couple of years... now I see why he loves it!" —Southern Belle

    Get it from Amazon for $16.65+ (available in sizes XS-2XL and 13 colors).

    3. A pair of knit bike shorts that are as perfect for lounging around on the couch as they are for wearing underneath a dress.


    Promising review: "These were EXACTLY what I was looking for! I wear these under dresses for work to prevent 'chub rub' or for doing chores around the house or working out. They do not roll up on me, even when I am jogging. They feel substantial, a bit thicker than typical cheap leggings, but not too much to feel bulky or noticeable under dresses." —StellaStars

    Get it from Amazon for $9.41+ (available in sizes XL-5XL and two colors).

    4. A pair of running shorts with a friction-free knit waistband and comfortable floaty opening at the hem, which is perfect if you're looking for a more breezy alternative to bike shorts.


    Promising review: "First of all let me let me say that these shorts are a God send for curvy, thick women. I'm a little too old for booty shorts so these cover all those areas that should be concealed, not revealed. I love that they have a higher waistband that fits and doesn't sag. Most times, when I buy shorts that fit around the hips, I end up with excess fabric that sags at the waist and I have to pin or 'pull up' constantly. Not these! They fit the bill." —Buster

    Get it from Amazon for $21.24 (available in sizes XS-3XL and 7 colors).

    5. A pair of cozy joggers with ~ VaporActive ~ technology to wick away sweat and keep you as cool as the cucumber-infused water you wish you were sipping on right now. Who says joggers are only for winter?!


    Promising review: "Absolutely obsessed with these — the fit, material, everything is great. I'm curvy/pear shaped, and some joggers fit strangely on my body type. I love how I look in these, and felt that they were true to size. I usually wear an XL in most pants and these fit as expected. They are not too thick, but still are warm enough for me to wear them out (or on my couch haha)." —calieskimo

    Get it from Amazon for $21.48 (available in sizes XS-L and three colors).

    6. A tank top with a breathable mesh panel at the back so you can get your workout on without your top sticking to you.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this shirt! I plan on buying another in another color because I want to wear this everyday during my work-out! It makes me feel confident and also is very easy to move around in without being revealing! Highly recommend!!" —Faith

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in sizes XS-XL and 22 colors).

    7. A pack of lightweight pullover bras with mesh inserts on the shoulders and back for extra breathability and a lightweight barely-there feel.


    Promising review: "I bought these to use as sports bras. I ordered a medium (per their sizing guide), and these fit perfectly. They are also incredibly comfortable. I can hardly tell I'm wearing anything! The fabric is very nice, soft, stretchy, and lightweight. The bottom band (around the rib cage) and the shoulder straps are wide, so no digging or discomfort. The neckline is not too high and not too low. The cups sit right where they should and provide very good support. The cups are lined (not really padded) with a molded liner that is sewn in and is not removable. I personally like that the liner is not removable because I can't stand fighting with the garment to replace them when they dislodge in the washing machine. I ordered the three-pack of white, and the white is a true white and not see-through in any way. I plan to order more because I am so happy with these. If you are hesitating, don't. You will love them." —Cheri R.

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $11.04+ (available in sizes S-5XL, various pack sizes, and 24 color combinations).

    8. A flowy convertible dress you can wear in two distinct ways. You can wear both straps over your shoulder for a classic look, or slip one down for a comfy one-shoulder moment. Either way, you'll look as cool and breezy as you feel.

    Free People

    Promising review: "Love this dress. Perfect for spring and summer. I love the fact that you can wear it two ways...easy on, easy off." —Pamels

    Get it from Free People for $60 (available in sizes XS-XL and two colors).

    9. A tank top with a workout-friendly cross-back design to allow for some extra airflow so you can keep your cool all spring long., Amazon

    Promising review: "This tank is super cute. The material is really soft and it’s overall a very cute top. The back is adorable too. The color is bright and pretty. I wore this during my workout today and it held up great. I would definitely recommend this top!" —Gina Andrews

    Get it from Amazon for $16.98 (available in sizes XS-XL and 18 colors).

    10. A flowy "freezer dress" by Columbia that's made with moisture-wicking fabric, temperature-regulating technology, and UPF 50 sun protection, making it perfect for anyone who overheats the second they step outside.,

    Promising review: "It's almost like bathing-suit fabric. Very thin, but substantial at the same time. The dress is cut beautifully. I LOVE the weight, and the way it hangs. It hugs in all the right places, and leaves room where you need it. It's flowy and feminine without being frilly and silly. LOVE this dress. Got one in a shorter version too." —Amanda

    Get it from Amazon for $37.35+ (available in sizes XS-2XL and 10 colors).

    11. Or this stretchy shorter version of the Freezer Dress that will definitely carry you all the way through the scorching days of summer.

    Reviewer wearing Columbia PFG Freezer Dress

    Promising review: "This dress is SO comfy! Looks great as a casual dress and just as great as any 'dressy' dress. I love the feel of the material. Even on a hot day, it is very comfortable and doesn't stick to you." —Zuumn

    Get it from Amazon for $24.98+ (available in sizes XS-3XL and 43 colors).

    12. A pair of leggings from Uniqlo with Airism fabric that's designed to feel ❄️ cool ❄️ to the touch. It also features protection from UV rays, so it's basically like wearable sunscreen for your legs.


    Promising review: "These leggings are super soft and do not collect dog hair! I have a husky and it’s hard to find soft leggings that won’t collect her hair! Will be buying more!" —Jenna

    Get it from Uniqlo for $29.90 (available in sizes XXS-XXL and eight colors).

    13. A lightweight V-neck dress with a vibrant floral pattern that will basically make you look like a watercolor painting come to life.

    14. A trendy color-block T-shirt that's perfect for anyone who prefers their workout gear (or watching Netflix on the couch gear) to have a flowy, loose fit.,

    Promising review: "As soon as I took the shirt out of the packaging I was impressed by the quality of the material. It's relaxed like a jersey-knit weave but has a bit more weight to it so it doesn't cling. It doesn't wrinkle and I haven't noticed any shrinkage after tossing it in the dryer, even on medium heat." —Rachel Massey

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and nine colors).

    15. A pair of gym shorts in an eye-catching pattern that proves athleisure doesn't have to be boring. These are made with a four-way stretch fabric that doesn't lose its shape and even contains UPF 35+ to keep you protected from the sun.

    17. A pair of bestselling high-waist biker shorts that will make you way less sad when it's finally too hot to wear leggings all the time.

    Reviewer wearing black Baleaf shirts

    Promising review: "I wore them for the first time during a 10K race (took a chance) and they served me well. The high waist keeps my tummy in place. The 8" inseam is a comfortable length on my thighs, not too short or long. The legs didn't ride up either. The pockets were perfect for my big phone: a Samsung J7. Not once did my phone pop out. Perfect thickness of fabric. It passed the squat test (not see-through when squatting)." —Lauren

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in sizes XS-5XL and 44 colors).

    18. This comfy cami-style romper with a button up neckline and stretchy elastic waistband, because we're carrying the cozy-chic vibes of 2020 into 2021 and beyond.

    Model wearing black cami romper

    Promising review: "I’m 4’8" so I’m very hesitant about ordering rompers online because they are normally too big. Not this one!! It fits me perfectly. It’s great quality material and super soft! I definitely foresee myself living in this during the summer! Can’t wait to dress this up for date nights or dress it down for beach days! Definitely recommend!" —Alexis Ashton

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and 14 colors).

    19. A long-sleeve T-shirt dress with a fit so loose and flowing you'll be reaching for it all year long, especially when it's time to head back into the office. Plus, nobody can resist a dress with pockets.,

    Promising review: "LOVE LOVE LOVE this dress!!!! The fabric is incredibly soft, like a really worn-in T-shirt. Not too thick or thin, it's just perfect for fall. The wine color is beautiful and I can't wait to wear this for work. Everyone in my office will love this! And the price?! This dress is just perfect all around and now I need it in all the colors!!!!" —April

    Get it from Amazon for $7.21+ (available in sizes XS-2XL and 29 colors).

    20. A pair of lightweight athletic shorts – they're technically made for running, but we won't judge if they make you too comfortable to even think about exercise.

    Promising review: "If you haven’t purchased yet, go ahead and do it right now! These are the comfiest running shorts. I’ve got bigger hips/butt which makes finding running shorts a tad harder. Other popular brands feel restrictive, but these have an extra give to them. They come up a little higher than most running shorts — which I love; even with them coming up higher, they do not look too short or like booty shorts. I’ve already ordered three additional pairs." —Haley LeBarron

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in sizes XS-XL and 15 colors).

    21. An off-the-shoulder dress with gloriously puffy sleeves to add a dramatic effect to your 'fit every time you catch a gust of that cool spring breeze.

    Beginning Boutique

    Promising review: "This dress is beautifully made! I was worried about how it would look on me, but I was pleasantly surprised! I can’t wait to wear it this spring and feel super confident." —Jodi U.

    Get it from Beginning Boutique for $64.99 (available in AU sizes 6-14).

    22. A pair of leggings that are perfect for spring and summer thanks to the moisture-wicking fabric. Best of all — they have pockets!

    Reviewer wearing leggings in the shade space dye gray

    Promising review: "These leggings are great! I have tried probably five different under-$20 leggings from Amazon trying to find one that I like, and this one is the first which I felt was not a waste of money. The fabric is soft but also substantial and opaque, no risk of showing through when you bend over or anything like that. The pockets are deep and perfect for storing your phone." —S. Diggs

    Get it from Amazon for $6.36+ (available in sizes XS-3XL and 23 colors).

    23. A gorgeous dress with subtle floral cutouts at the hem and an off-the-shoulder design that you'll still be reaching for during the hottest days of summer.

    Reviewer wearing black off-the-shoulder dress

    Promising review: "I ordered the size I normally wear and it fits great! Got it for vacation and ended up using it as a swimsuit cover up as well; the elastic in the waist and shoulders makes it easy to get on and off." —Kira T.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.50+ (available in sizes XL-4XL and 15 colors).

    24. A relaxed fit, short-sleeve button-down for the days when you want to feel extra dressy, but don't want to feel trapped by long sleeves.


    Promising review: "Another Daily Ritual 'holy grail' item, I have this shirt in both the olive green and light denim wash and I LOVE them both, and will be getting other colors. Fabric is a really high quality tencel blend that may be a little on the heavier side, but it eliminates the need for a camisole (esp. in the lighter fabric), drapes beautifully, washes well and requires minimal ironing (I just hang as soon as it's out of the dryer). The fit is on the generous side, and I sized one up so I could wear with leggings and still have enough coverage in front and back. If you wanted something more fitted, definitely size down. I am constantly wearing these shirts-- whether at the office paired with a skirt or slacks or over the weekend with leggings-- and i still feel chic and put together." —Kitty LeNoir

    Get it from Amazon for $26.90 (available in sizes XS-2XL and seven colors).

    25. And a super thin and breathable dress with puffy sleeves and an elastic tie on the front so you can acheive your ultimate spring/summer goal: staying comfy and casual without sacrificing style.

    Beginning Boutique

    Promising review: "This dress is perfect for the spring, and very light!" —McKenna B.

    Get it from Beginning Boutique for $64.99 (available in AU sizes 4-16).
