    1. A gorgeous flowing maxi dress you'll rule everyone's Instagram feeds wearing.,

    Promising review: "I loved the colors. This dress is quite comfy, very easy to pack for international travel (doesn’t take up much space), playful, and fun, but easy to wear with tights for a warmer outfit. This was the perfect combination of fun and adventurous and was a great 'outing' dress to travel with." —Addyson Burke

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99+ (available in sizes XS-2XL and in 25 prints).

    2. A vintage-inspired A-line dress detailed with an adorable floral print and perfectly contrasting piping for that retro feel in an office-appropriate style.


    Promising review: "Bohemian look. Take it into colder months with tights and boots, but I'll wear it in summer with strappy nude sandals. Very meet-the-parents appropriate." —S.Shaffer Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $31.99+ (available in sizes XS-XL).

    3. A stretchy A-line ruffled-sleeve party dress, because this dress is just too cute not to own — plus it comes in 14 colors so you can literally have a different one for every day of the week!

    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 so I don't mind it. I'm 5'2", 140 lbs., 38-33-40. Usually fit size 6–8, medium. The dress was true to size." —Kaela

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and in 12 colors).

    4. A flowy and ruffled babydoll dress you can perfectly pair with your favorite knee-high boots.,

    Promising review: "Love it! Great quality and a perfect look. I am buying it in another color." —BRANDI D WALKER

    Get it from Amazon for $26+ (available in sizes S-XXL, long and short sleeve, and in eight colors).

    5. A scalloped neckline off-the-shoulder swing dress for when you need to be easily able to twirl around town.,

    Reviewers have pointed out that this dress seems to run a tad big — customers suggest ordering a size down!

    Promising review: "I bought this for my company Christmas party. It was a runaway hit — so much so that people who didn't attend the party were asking about the dress because so many people said how pretty it was. I was called 'Marilyn' since I wore this with red patent heels and classic red lipstick. The fabric had enough give to make it comfortable to wear the whole night without feeling constricted. The fabric itself is smooth, of a good weight, and irons to a crisp finish. BTW, I am a size 14/16 dress, D cup, and ordered an XL. Perfect fit. I am 5'4" and the skirt hits several inches below the knee. I bought a petticoat to wear with it, and while you may not need it, it does add to the drama." —Christine Garcia

    Get it from Amazon for $33.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL, available in short and long sleeve, and in 16 colors).

    6. A whimsical off-the-shoulder chiffon dress to wear to any special occasions you have coming up — and if you don't, you're special enough, so really any occasion will do.,

    Promising review: "This dress is beautiful! It's very light and flowy. The material is of great quality. As the other reviews have mentioned it runs a bit big. I am 5'6," around 165 lbs., and typically wear a large but opted for a medium and it fit perfectly. I purchased this for my birthday dinner cruise and received many compliments. ☺ Definitely a quality dress for a reasonable price." —Abayomi W.

    Get it from Amazon for $25.35 (available in sizes S-3XL and seven colors).

    7. A beautifully embellished mesh sleeve shift dress everyone will be complimenting you about.,

    Promising review: "Love this dress! I have a bigger chest, and I was so worried about this dress fitting! I was pleasantly surprised that the material had some stretch to it, and it fit beautifully!! I love the details as well! I used the tie as a belt to make the dress a little shorter and give myself a waist!" —Kelly Fox

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and six colors).

    8. A decadent cashmere swing dress designed with an elegant pleated skirt and a wraparound belt to complete the look.,

    Promising review: "I love this dress. It fit like a glove. My husband gave me the 'wow' reaction that I'm always hoping for when I show him a new outfit — so that's always a bonus. I have to talk about how soft it is, this dress material is so so cozy and it seems very high quality. It seems as well made if not better than my designer clothes that cost a lot more. I love the pleated skirt and the tie around, it's different but classy and attractive. This is my go-to winter piece." —SVandy

    Get it from Amazon for $49 (available in sizes S–L and in eight colors).

    9. An adorably cute off-the-shoulder swing maxi dress that'll just have you looking like a fanciful princess.,

    Promising review: "After purchasing so many dresses online, finally I bought one that fits me wonderfully. I'm 110 lbs., 5'4", and I bought a size XS. The length was perfect, doesn't drag on the ground, the color as shown, and it's just a pretty dress. Buy it, you won't regret it! 😊" —Charolina

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in seven colors).

    10. A delightfully pleated fit-and-flare midi dress to take you from conservative workwear to happy hour cocktails with just the change of a shoe.,

    Promising review: "This dress is thick yet has a beautiful drape to it. The sleeves are lantern-shaped and have a cute ruffle detail on the edge. The pintucks in the front and back are placed in the perfect spot to accentuate the waist. The dress fits like a glove. It is a bit longer on me than the model (I am 5'2" for reference)." —ruth maldonado

    Get it from Amazon for $32.99+ (available in sizes XS-2XL, long and short sleeve, and in 10 colors).

    11. A tie-waist button-up maxi dress you can wear on your next vacation, or your next I-wish-I-were-on-vacation day.,

    Promising review: "I bought this dress on a whim and was a little skeptical about it. I have never received so many compliments on a dress before. I wore it on a trip to the Biltmore Estate with my husband and in-laws, and we honestly couldn't get through the day without someone stopping me every few minutes to ask where I got my dress or to tell me how gorgeous it was. It flowed beautifully on that windy day. I'm obsessed with it, I even bought two more in different colors. I highly recommend!!!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 26 prints).

    12. A sweet little open-back dress designed with a V-neck, lantern sleeves, and just enough swing in the skirt to have you twirling into people's hearts., Amazon

    Promising review: "This dress is super cute. Material is nice and not see-through." —Allison

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and 10 styles).

    13. An enchanting off-the-shoulder pleated maxi dress perfect for all those romantic nights on the town.,

    Promising review: "I am 210 lbs, 5' 3", and bust 44C, and triangle body shape. Ladies, this is a must-have for casual events...with a statement necklace. It's not clingy. Material is breathable, soft, definitely not see-through." —Nickeeta

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 11 colors).

    14. A super comfy button-up plaid shirt dress to keep you warm and looking cute as the seasons change.,

    Promising review: "Let's just say that I am in love with this dress and will be ordering more colors. I read the reviews and a lot of reviews stated the dress ran small, so I sized up to a large. I could have ordered my true size, which is a medium. I'm 5'4", 128-130 lbs. The large did fit, but I could have gotten a medium. It is a very pretty dress in my opinion. The pockets are perfect!!!" —NinaCymone

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in sizes S-2XL and in seven colors).

    15. An off-the-shoulder floral cocktail dress, because you never know when someone might invite you somewhere... anywhere!

    Promising review: "I'm 5'11, 140-ish lbs., 34C, and I purchased a small, which fit perfectly! Skirt hits my mid-calf. Slip underneath hits right above the knees. Not the richest material, but very soft, lightweight, and airy for those hot summer days! Nice soft feminine floral print. Exactly as shown in the pictures. A very nice dress for the price. Overall I would definitely recommend." —Dee

    Get it from Amazon for $31.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in two prints).

    16. A three-quarter-length sleeve V-neck dress you very much might get confused for a royal princess while wearing — oh, and it has pockets!,

    Promising review: "I followed the sizing chart and ordered one size larger than my normal size and it fits perfectly! It’s very flattering and comfortable! Also, it has pockets — so yay!" —A Jewell

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in sizes S-2XL and in five colors and three sleeve lengths).

    17. A pleated tie-waist A-line dress perfect for all those romantic walks to the fridge.


    Promising review: "Absolutely beautiful dress! I wore it to a wedding rehearsal and it was a hit!! I got so many compliments. It flows, has pockets, and what a wonderful price — really worth more with such great quality. Please note that the belt is purely ornamental and doesn't tie." —Renie

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in sizes S-XL, 12 colors, and two sleeve lengths).

    18. A super-soft ruffle-sleeve cotton dress that just might be prettier than anything else in your closet.


    Promising review: "Super pleased with this purchase. The material is heavy and feels luxurious. Really good buy — the pattern and material are perfect! Very pretty and feminine looking. Highly recommend this dress to anyone considering purchasing it!" —WhoAmI

    Get it from Amazon for $45.99 (available in sizes S-XL and in three colors).

    19. A flowy long-sleeve swing dress to have the perfect outfit for every buffet you ever visit.,

    Promising review: "I want to order all the colors in this dress!!! I don't usually wear dresses, but this one is everything!!!🙌🏼🙌🏼 Very comfortable and soft! Love to wear them with boots or my Converses! No scarf or with a scarf, it's perfect! I am 170 lbs, curvy, and I ordered a medium. I love it!!" —Angela Alston

    Get it from Amazon for $13.98+ (available in sizes XS-3XL and in 23 colors).

    20. A hooded swing dress, because maybe you've always wanted to be Little Red Riding Hood but red just isn't your color.


    Promising review: "This is an excellent dress. The material is thick and sturdy but has a nice stretch. It is not see-through. The waistline is very attractive because it is not quite an empire but not low either. The hood is super cute and can be worn as-is or throw a jean jacket with it and you are so cute. I’ve worn with and without leggings and again, perfect! As far as fit, I am 5’5”, 180 lbs., with a straight body type, and the medium fit. My mom, who is 5’1” and 160 lbs. also wears the medium. It’s weird but it fits both of us great. Falls below the knees for both but not too long. I have the grey which sometimes looks navy in the right light. My mom has the pink and it’s a beautiful subtle color. Highly recommend." —Rebecca Stiles

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

    21. A button-up midi dress that'll be the perfect thing to wear during any moment of any day.,

    Promising review: "This is my all-time favorite dress to wear for work (I am a teacher). I especially love the faux buttons since I sometimes have trouble with button-down tops/dress fitting oddly. The length is great and there’s just the right amount of stretch to the dress. I typically wear a medium/8 in dresses but I ordered a large and I’m glad I did." —Teaching in Heels

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL, in 20 colors, and with short or long sleeves).

    22. A vintage-inspired floral print cocktail dress you can easily layer up with boots and a blazer or with a denim jacket and your favorite wedges.

    Promising review: "Love the cut of this dress and the colors. The fabric itself is not the best quality. Thin and crinkly polyester with a bit of stretch. I was torn about keeping it but for the price, it's a fun piece with a retro '70s vibe and I got many compliments at work while wearing it so I don't regret it. Size up if in doubt." —P

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in sizes S-2XL and in three prints).

    23. A ruffled flowy smocked-bust midi dress to give your wardrobe a classic look in the most comfortable way.


    Promising review: "So cute! The dress is exactly as pictured. Love the color. I was worried about the quality because it was so inexpensive, but it’s actually really nice and not see-through at all! Such a perfect dress for vacation!" —JP0811

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in sizes 4-12 and in blue and white).

    24. A flowy, ruffled, V-neck swing dress — basically, it'll be comfy enough for your dinner plans and dressy enough to not get you judged.


    Promising review: "Love this dress, modest enough to wear for work but cute enough to wear every day! I'm petite so I would say it runs a bit bigger than I'd prefer but it is still super cute! Also, this exact dress is being sold at other boutiques for three times the price!" —Emily Seils

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in three colors).

    25. A knit, three quarter length sleeve fit-and-flare dress so versatile and comfy it might be the only thing you wear ever again., Amazon

    Promising review: "Very comfortable and flattering. The material is stretch-knit and substantial enough that it feels as though it smooths imperfections as opposed to highlighting them. The A-line cut is perfect for anyone who has a little extra weight in the midsection. I’m 5’4" and the length is perfect on me. Overall I would say it fits true-to-size. This is my new go-to LBD." —Kristin

    Get it from Amazon for $8.66+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 20 colors)

    26. An elegant swing dress designed with a deep V and pockets for that "I have somewhere to be and things to carry" look.


    Promising review: "Beautiful dress. I'm 5'4" and the length was perfect. I had originally ordered a 2XL due to my large chest and broad shoulders, but it did run small, so I returned and got the 3XL. I am a 38D for reference in the chest area. The 3XL fit well. The material is heavy, the swing isn't as dramatic as it is in the picture. I received so many compliments. I had originally wanted this dress in black but it was sold out so I got the blue, which I was surprised by how complimentary it was." —Shauna

    Get it from Amazon for $30.88+ (available in sizes S-3XL and in 11 colors). And for anyone worried about the plunging neckline, try a convertible V-bra.

    27. A plunging velvet party dress so you can be drenched in luxury — but not too drenched.


    Promising review: "I love everything about this dress. I purchased it for NYE and it fit perfectly. I'm 5'5", bigger busted, normally wear a 12/large, and it was so flattering and forgiving! I would buy again. A girl in the bathroom said I had all the Stevie Nicks' vibes." —Dana D Troglen

    Get it from Amazon for $10.98+ (available in sizes S-XL and in four colors).

    28. A gorgeous polka-dot halter dress that's *technically* a summer dress but honestly, it's just so chic you should buy it now and just layer it up!


    Promising review: "First, this dress fits me perfectly. Second, the material and the seam are perfect. Third, I’ve been washing it and the color hasn’t faded because it seems the material is like silk. So I purchased a 2XL since I’m pregnant and this the comfiest dress I’ve had." —Christy

    Get it from Amazon for $28.79 (available in sizes S-3XL and in three colors).

    29. A lace vintage-inspired boat neck swing dress you can slide down and wear off-the-shoulders — if you're feeling wild.,

    Promising review: "This was my 'in case of emergency' dress for my work gala. I have a hard time shopping in department stores as I have a bigger body type. But I went for it. BEST DECISION EVER. When it came in, I tried it on and was stunned. It had some stretch so it was super comfortable. I got a lot of compliments on it at my formal event. I'll be wearing it every chance I get!" —Rachel

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (availalble in sizes XS–XXL and in 17 patterns).

    30. A perfectly embellished and tulle skirt evening gown that'll have you covered at every party you grace with your presence.

    Promising review: "Wow! As a plus-sized gal, I never have too high of expectations when I order clothes online. This dress is gorgeous. The fabric is quality and the sequins help it hang heavy. The bodice is also great. Not see-through at all! You could even wear a white bra! The lace is gorgeous and tightly woven, I have no doubt it will hold the sequins and not tear. It's very classy looking." —LDB22

    Get it from Amazon for $35.99+ (available in sizes 14–26 and in two colors).

    31. An off-the-shoulder lace and mesh midi dress for your next vacation or night on the town.


    Promising review: "This dress is exactly as pictured! It has stretch to it and is overall very pretty and flowy. I ordered an XL when I should’ve ordered an L or maybe even a M. My fault though." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in two colors).

    32. A flowy vintage-inspired chiffon dress designed with bell sleeves and a tie-waist for a boho vibe.


    Promising review: "I wear size 10 (or large) depending on manufacturers. Originally I ordered the XL in the black dress — based on my experiences. But it was like a blanket when put it on (huge and boxy). I loved the style and fabric. So, despite me being lazy, I returned the XL and reordered a medium. Now it is just right (roomy and a loose fit like the model in the photos). Very cute yet comfortable and breezy. I love love love the style. It will be nice just as it is in summer, great with a cardigan in the spring and fall." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $24.88+ (available in sizes S-XL and in brown and black).

    33. A simple and timeless pleated A-line swing dress detailed with a classic mesh neckline to help keep you looking so sophisticated.,

    Promising review: "The perfect little black dress. The fabric is very soft, thick, and of excellent quality. It feels like satin and has a subtle shine. The skirt falls nicely which creates natural pleats. The dress is extremely comfortable. The zipper is in the back, it is totally invisible and your friends might ask you how you got this dress on. If you need to iron it, which I did prior to the party, iron it on low inside out." —Summer16

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes XS–3X and in 36 colors).

    34. An open back halter maxi dress for anyone heading to warmer climates — lucky you.,

    Promising review: "My favorite aspect of this dress is the material — how it hangs with a little weight but is nice and cool, and so far seems to resist wrinkling very well. The unique back is so fun. Very easy to wear this dress without a bra, it offers a bit of support. Fun fact: if you adjust the neck a bit to one side or the other, you can breastfeed in this dress." —Kim Miller

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and in 13 prints).

    35. A retro-feel sweetheart neckline fit and flare dress to get the perfect pin-up style — or that perfect talk show, actress, comedian, masked-singer style.

    Promising review: "This beautiful dress came in two days — I was astonished at the quality of the dress. It's made of a very stretchy fabric so it was easy to zip. I am a 1X but ordered one size up (2X) and it fits perfectly. I put a five-layer petticoat underneath and got compliments all night on my '40s look! The bodice looked good on my very ample boobs, I would definitely purchase this dress again." —S. Shepherd

    Get it from Amazon for $32.99 (available in sizes S–XXL and in six colors).

    36. A flowy chiffon dress comfortable and stretchy enough to make it the perfect feasting dress.


    Promising review: "I was super surprised with the quality of this dress. It fit perfect!! It's fresh and nice. It hit right below my knee how I wanted it. Enjoying everything of it." —jen

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in sizes S-XXXL and in 10 prints).

    37. And a drop-waist ruffled hem velvet dress to wear through every season — but go ahead and use February as your excuse to buy it.


    Promising review: "It fits very well and is comfy. I bought it specifically for a vintage-themed dinner but I’ll wear it for other dressy occasions." —Andrew W. Hostetter

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99 (available in sizes S-XL and in four colors).

    This is about to be you every morning when you get dressed in one of your new dresses.
