    amazon.com, amazon.com

    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 $33.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and in nine prints).

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

    4. A flowy long-sleeve swing dress to have the perfect outfit for every buffet you set up in your own kitchen.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have been looking for a simple burgundy dress for my brother's wedding coming up, I spent a good three months trying to find one and failing, in my most desperate of hours I decided to scour Amazon, this wasn't my first choice and I was very hesitant about this dress but the reviews were pretty convincing and they sounded genuine. I took a leap of faith and ended up buying it — it has exceeded my expectations by a landslide! It's soft and comfortable, true-to-size, it's light but it has a stretchier heavy feel, it makes my ample chest look amazing but it also doesn't make me look like a tent (busty girls know that issue when wearing loose clothing. Also, a bonus, it doesn't overstretch on my boobies), it's a beautiful red wine color (surprisingly accurate to the photo), and it has a lovely flow when you walk and twirl! And that asymmetrical look? It tastefully exposes my thigh tattoo! All in all, lovely dress that can be dressed up and down!" —larissa

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in sizes XS–3XL and in 47 colors).

    5. A delightful pleated fit-and-flare midi dress for when you want something a little more conservative and still a lot of fun.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    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. A perfect dress for Valentine's Day or the holidays!" —ruth maldonado

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99+ (available in sizes XS–2XL and in 10 colors).

    6. A long-sleeve swinging faux wrap dress available in so many great prints — but this charcoal and red floral print is my personal favorite.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I searched through about 300 'cocktail dresses with long sleeves' options before finding this gem! The material is great, stands up to wrinkles/long car rides, and doesn’t cling at all. The cut is (really) low so I got some skin/fabric tape to close it up. I got the large — a medium would probably have been too short. I love it!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in sizes S–3XL and in 17 prints).

    7. A fanciful Just Female frock that's made of recycled polyester and has a super elegant sheen to it.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    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 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 in seven colors).

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

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    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 $39+ (available in sizes S–L and in eight colors).

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

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    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

    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

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. The dress was true to size." —Kaela

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

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Beautiful dress. The length was perfect. It did run small due to my large chest and broad shoulders, so I returned and got a larger size. 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 $34.88+ (available in sizes S–3XL and in 18 colors). And for anyone worried about the plunging neckline, try a convertible V-bra.

    31. A scalloped neckline off-the-shoulder swing dress you won't ever want to swap.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    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. 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 $14.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL, available in short and long sleeve, and in 23 colors).

    32. A plunging velvet party dress for when your winter wardrobe is ready for a risque makeover.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love everything about this dress. I purchased it for NYE and it fit perfectly. Not too form-fitting. Definitely had cleavage but okay for a special night out! 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 $29.98 (available in sizes S–L and in three colors).

    33. A cutout paisley mini dress that's all business in the front and nothing but a party in the back (and sides).

    Get it from Amazon for $24.37+ (available in sizes S–XL and in six colors).

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

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    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 $22.99+ (available in sizes XS–3X and in 40 colors).

    36. An investment-worthy Pepa Pombo midi dress handmade with 100% recycled, natural fabrics in Colombia.

    amazon.com

    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).
