    1. An open back ruffled hem midi dress that's just as pretty when you're walking in as when you're walking away.

    Free People

    Promising review: "Quality, fit, and color of this dress is superb. Very fairly priced. The neckline reminds me of a Renaissance or Tudor style, while the skirt has a Gunne Sax feel — very unique and beautiful. I am larger chested (D cup) and the bust fit." —moonandwolf

    Price: $98 (available in sizes XS-XL and in black and purple)

    2. A ribbed slit-front midi pencil skirt you'll never want to erase from your closet.

    Free People

    Promising review: "I have two of these skirts in different colors and I’m tempted to buy some more. It’s comfy and cute. Can be dressed up or down. Perfect length. I highly recommend buying because you won’t be disappointed." —candiski83

    Price: $50 (available in sizes XS-L and 12 colors)

    3. A neoprene-like V-neck bralette – its adjustable straps can be converted into a racer back.

    Free People

    Promising review: "Truly the softest bra ever. I’m a 32C and I got a size small. Highly recommend! Super cute!" —Cassteteberg

    Price: $38 (available in sizes XS-XL and nine colors)

    4. An A-line, pleated, ruffled maxi dress designed with an adjustable waist hem, lined skirt, and the prettiest floral print your closet will ever see.

    Free People

    Promising review: "I love this dress! It runs small for FP, but it’s true-to- 'regular'-sizing. I’ve got a small chest and a slender upper body overall. I do agree with other reviewers that if you’ve got a larger chest or more broad shoulders, you may want to size up because the fabric/stitching of the bodice has no give. I get all kinds of compliments when I wear this (I got the red) and I want to buy it in another color. I’m 5’6”, 145 lbs., and I wear all my weight in my bum and thighs. I got a size M." —Natty_HI

    Price: $148 (available in sizes XS-XL and in four colors)

    5. An adorable shell-beaded ankle bracelet that'll go with everything you wear this summer.

    Free People

    Promising review: "This anklet is so cute! I wear it every day and I also love how all the shells are different from one another rather than being the same. <3" —jobutterfly9

    Price: $18 (available in five colors)

    6. A super comfy T-shirt midi dress for all those hotter than hot days when just the thought of wearing clothes makes you wanna die.

    Free People

    Promising review: "These are so perfect I have three colors! Black, white, and green — I love them. They’re so comfortable and the cotton is beautiful. You can dress them up or wear them casually. Good job, Free People." —Parra8874

    Price: $50 (available in sizes XS-XL and in eight colors)

    7. A vegan five-in-one Suntegrity self-tanner designed to not only give you that perfect summer glow (without any actual sun), but also hydrate, nourish, moisturize, and repair your skin.

    Free People

    Promising review: "I am very fair skinned so I have tried many self-tanners but this one takes the cake! I have found my go-to self-tanner for life. The lotion is white, no scent (score!), dries within a few minutes, and within eight hours a beautiful natural looking tan appears. Make sure to follow the directions on the bottle and as with any self-tanner — exfoliate and shave before, moisturize dry areas on your body, apply evenly, and wash hands after application for best results. So happy I bought this!" —AmbRiz

    Price: $36

    8. A stunning off-the-shoulder sequins dress – I have absolutely nowhere to wear it to, but I wanna buy it anyway!

    Free People

    Promising review: "Dress this up or down. It’s truly a sequined dress and with a pair of strappy sandals, you are ready for a stylish elegant evening. I am 5’9” so the length was at mid-leg. I would say if you are shorter you might need an alteration. The dress is heavy but the off the shoulder elastic holds it up well. I bought the black one and love it!" —Kforkath

    Price: $260 (available in sizes XS-L and in gunmetal and gold)

    9. An adjustable tie-back halter maxi dress you can wear on your next tropical holiday.

    Free People

    Promising review: "I love, love, LOVE this dress! It is so forgiving on size because of the adjustable straps. I have a bit of underboob, but I personally feel that just adds to the sexiness of it (if you're going for that) along with the thigh-high slits. For reference, I am 5'6", 140 lbs., with a curvy athletic build, and I ordered a small. The movement is beautiful, and I love how the little bells jingle when I walk." —zophisticated

    Price: $128 (available in sizes XS-XL and in five colors)

    10. A beautifully romantic drop waist maxi dress you'll easily be able to dress up or down with just a change of a sandal.

    Free People

    Promising review: "I was a bit hesitant buying it, thinking it might’ve been another beach dress — wow! So delicate, and it can easily be dressed up or down. The lace on the bottom is beautiful!! I am 5’4" and ordered an extra small, the length is just perfect." —Jenniferbarroso

    Price: $128 (available in sizes XS-L)

    11. A timeless pair of water-resistant Teva sandals capable of withstanding whatever you get into this summer.

    Free People

    Promising review: "Great sandal to wear around the house, on errands, to the lake, beach or sailing, park, or almost any place. They are like wearing Crocs. I normally wear a size 7 or 7.5, and have narrow feet. I purchased the mango color in a size 7. The fit was perfect on length but little wide, but I expected that. Plan on buying the black and white soon. I found these to be comfortable. Love the velcro straps." —shabbycowgirl

    Price: $40 (available in sizes 6-10 and in four colors)

    12. A floral-print ruffle hem slip dress designed with tie straps you can adjust to get a perfect fit.

    Free People

    Promising review: "This is the perfect easy summer dress. The straps are adjustable and cutely tie at the top of your shoulders. I am 4’11" and 100 lbs., and the XS fits perfectly. I like the fit so much I might get it in another color. Definitely, recommend." —Leadcred

    Price: $68 (available in sizes XS-L and in black and red)

    13. An asymmetrical convertible midi skirt that has a smocked elastic waistband to wear at your waist or at your bust.

    Free People

    Promising review: "So feminine and so comfortable! Love the color and the versatility of being able to wear it as a skirt or dress. It looks great both ways! I plan to buy it in at least one more color! Highly recommend!" —hosier_4

    Price: $88 (available in sizes XS-XL and in five colors)

    14. A slightly-cropped classic V-neck T-shirt you can perfectly pair with your favorite high-waisted jeans.

    Free People

    Promising review: "I get really picky when it comes to T-shirts, I have a drawerful of T-shirts yet this one became my favorite. It’s a perfect semi-crop length and the neckline isn’t too low or too high. It looks super cute with high-waisted bottoms, super versatile to match with anything. The material is soft too!" —rj510

    Price: $20 (available in sizes XS-XL and six colors)

    15. A super-comfy elastic-waist open-back midi dress for all those girls' nights your Leo season will be filled with.

    Free People

    Promising review: "I am so happy with my purchase! I can wear it dressed up for drinks with the girls or dinner with the man OR wear it Sunday mornings for some shopping and errands. I purchased the black but just may get the other colors (if still available!). The material is so comfy but looks like it’s worth more than the price! Size is true-to-fit. I ordered a small. I could have done the XS but the small is just a wee bit looser which I like." —amybattiato

    Price: $70 (available in sizes XS-XL and in five colors)

    16. A flowing lace detailed maxi dress complete with a tiered skirt, a drawstring waist, and everything else you need to complete your bohemian dreams.

    Free People

    Promising review: "This dress is gorgeous, but it runs small across the chest. I was very happy that I read the reviews otherwise I would have ordered a small. I am 5'2", 130 lbs., and have a 36D chest size — so although I'm very petite on the waist, arms, and back, I needed a large for the chest." —esmy77

    Price: $128 (available in sizes XS-XL and in four colors)

    17. A gauzy cotton V-neck midi dress –you'll wear it so much this summer that people will think you have nothing else in your closet.

    Free People

    Promising review: "I plan on living entirely in this dress this summer. It’s so comfortable and flattering (IMO) and the low neck makes it cute. True-to-size. Wish it had pockets though." —kpdp

    Price: $108 (available in sizes XS-L and in eight colors)

    18. An over-sized pair of cat eye sunglasses so you can block those bright rays and those shady haters.

    Free People

    Promising review: "I must express my gratitude to the designer who, despite what I'm sure is a natural inclination to create sunglasses that make people look like members of the Suri Cruise-Holmes social circle, decided instead to take the moral high road and design eyewear that exudes original spirit and confidence on a planet dangling in the cosmic boondocks of the universe. Pairs well with sunny days, picnics, and high-stakes games like capture-the-flag." —Benny

    Price: $25 (available in five colors)

    19. A frayed boat neck mini dress you'll easily be able to dance the night away in — or just dance the day away, 'cause staying out past 9 p.m. is so last year.

    Free People

    Promising review: "I have this dress in two colors and I love them both! I have one in a large and the other in a medium. They are both a bit oversized and I wish I would have gotten a small as I wear them off the shoulder and the larger sizes give me a little more length than I would like." —JoggerGal

    Price: $78 (available in sizes XS-XL and in four colors)

    20. A sparkling pair of palm tree–inspired dangling earrings so you can take the tropical with you wherever you go.

    Free People

    Promising review: "You can dress these up or do a more casual look. They have a hint of green to them but from a distance look black. Definitely, recommend!" —Jamy76

    Price: $28

    21. An adorable tie-strap blouse that's actually a bodysuit — meaning, everything will sit perfectly when you wear it.

    Free People

    Promising review: "I tried this on in the store (and was pleasantly surprised to find out it was a bodysuit). The material is very high quality and the lining is SO soft. The yellow color is beautiful and great for spring/summer!" —erikaas999

    Price: $68 (available in sizes XS-L and in four colors)

    22. A convertible asymmetrical midi skirt you 100% need — it's the perfect beach accessory! Wear it as a skirt with your super cute bikini top and then just pull it up and throw on a cute pair of shorts for a day around town.

    Free People

    Promising review: "Best top/skirt outfit of the summer. I was sad when I saw the color I wanted was sold out in my size (medium). I decided I'd wing it, get the large and take it in if I need be. Didn't have to. It fits! A tad big but otherwise yay! It's very well made too. I'm 5'11" and about 140. The skirt rocks for length too — go figure! :)" —shreenze

    Price: $78 (available in sizes XS-XL and in four colors)

    23. A ribbed open back cropped tank so you have the perfect workout top that doubles as a very comfy layering piece.

    Free People

    Promising review: "Love the strappy back and low armholes (nice and breathable for summer heat). I’m 5’6”, 115 lbs., measure 31.5” underbust, and am almost a B cup. My torso is 26” long and shoulders are 20” across. I chose the medium and it’s a great crop top fit: no squeezing, hits just above my navel, and has plenty of support for me." —ahhriane

    Price: $30 (available in sizes XS-L and in 18 colors)

    24. A classic lightweight tiered skirt maxi dress perfect for a hot date night — and by hot, I mean actually hot, like sweating hot.

    Free People

    Promising review: "This dress is perfect for summer, easy to throw on for running errands or heading to the beach. Fabric is lightweight and fit is a little bit larger. I would have sized down. Still very comfortable." —mcd2121

    Price: $98 (available in sizes XS-XL and in three colors)

    25. An attention-grabbing pair of block heel sandals to help you add a little height to all your casual outfits.

    Free People

    Promising review: "These shoes are unbelievable!! I get compliments on the neon pair everywhere I go. They are so comfortable, too. Love them to pieces! Highly recommend." —tinap

    Price: $138 (available in sizes 36-41 and four colors)

    26. A throw-on pocketed swing dress that doubles as the best damn cover-up the beach will ever see.

    Free People

    Promising review: "I love this dress. It is a perfect cover-up. It does run large. I normally wear a medium and ordered a small. I probably could have worn an extra small." —kellyhamiltond

    Price: $40 (available in sizes XS-XL and in eight colors)

    27. A super soft cotton T-shirt designed with a handy little pocket that's just tree-mendous.

    Free People

    Promising review: "I always wear a medium. I ordered a large and it fit great. Soft and lightweight. I think it is a bit pricey but I kept it because I loved the pocket detail." —mainstayfarm

    Price: $58 (available in sizes XS-M)

    28. A smocked convertible peplum tube top that'll transform into an adorable skirt with just a tug at the waist.

    Free People

    Promising review: "I purchased the medium to wear as a mini skirt. It measures 16” long from the middle of skirt, 15” on the sides. You can pull up for a shorter look, down on hips for length. Unstretched 12” but stretched to easily accommodate my 30” waist. Granted, my hips and butt are small compared to my thick waist. The smocking and ruffle actually give my small butt some dimension." —bohobetty

    Price: $48 (available in sizes XS-XL and in three colors)

    29. A button-down off-the-shoulder midi dress that'll have you looking like the lead in a tear-jerking romcom.

    Free People

    Promising review: "I found the other reviews very helpful before buying this — SO glad I sized down! I’m 5’5”/5’6” and my weight fluctuates between 155 and 175... SMALL fits perfectly. I will only be wearing it off-shoulder, but I had planned on doing that anyway. Wish it wasn’t so expensive, I would have bought the yellow as well. I feel like a Renaissance princess wearing it! :) If you’re shorter than me, the midi length won’t work." —Sophia622

    Price: $108 (available in sizes XS-XL and in five colors)

    30. A dangling set of shell embellished hairpins to bring a whole new meaning to beachy hair.

    Free People

    Promising review: "If you are on the fence about these — don’t be. I feel like a beautiful mermaid, a majestic little siren when I wear these, and my husband loves them on me too! Also, don’t be intimidated by the size of the bobby pins. I went ahead and swapped them out for some very small ones since my hair is thin." —RRaeLee

    Price: $28

    31. And a slouchy cropped fleece jacket to keep you nice and cozy during your next workout — and by workout, I mean your next day laying around the house doing nothing.

    Free People

    Promising review: "This jacket is the softest fleece I own! It’s a little oversized and also a little cropped, but that’s exactly what I wanted. I got the light blue color and it looks the same as pictured. Highly recommend!" —rachel307

    Price: $78 (available in sizes XS-L and in five colors)

    I can see why people swear by these pieces, they're so damn cute!
