    Promising review: "I wore this to an outdoor wedding on a hot summer day and the thin fabric kept me cool and comfortable. The dress has a lovely cut for all body types, with the high neck and swing style. I wore an elastic belt to cinch the waist, but it looks great without a belt as well. The pink floral pattern is gorgeous and eye-catching. I got tons of compliments on this dress, and most importantly I felt comfortable and confident in it." —Frannie

    reviewer wearing the red floral off-shoulder dress

    Promising review: "Such a sweet dress! The elastic bodice keeps all the material in one place (no sliding), and the colors are lovely and true to the photos. I was worried about the length, but it’s great—short enough to be fun but long enough to not worry about accidentally flashing people, LOL, just follow the sizing guide. One of my favorite aspects of this dress is that it has several layers of fabric, so it feels like a higher-quality piece. So excited to wear this once the weather warms up." —M.

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

    10. A ruffle dress that'll mysteriously turn up in all your summer pics...and then fall pics.,

    Promising review: "This dress had me at pockets! What a great dress, especially for work! It has pockets on both sides, a work-appropriate hemline, and the material is the kind where you can sit for hours, but it'll never show a wrinkle! With wedges, it's the perfect outfit for work, comfy and practical yet classy." —AprilAries

    Promising review: "OHHHH MYYYYY GOSH!!!!! Ok, I will say that up front, I am Amazon-everything because I'm always so busy with work that I have no patience to shop for clothes in the 'outside world' and I NEVER have time to write reviews, but THIS dress, out of the hundreds of clothing orders I've placed on Amazon, TRULY deserves the time to review!

    FYI, if you have Amazon Prime Wardrobe you can give this a spin before you buy it! Check out our full write-up on this dress.

    Promising review: "I'm one of those people who never writes reviews. I found this dress through a BuzzFeed article and couldn't resist the white sunflower one. The material is stretchy and just fits your body so well. I didn't have any problems with it being see-through while I was wearing light gray underwear. The length is cute. The buttons are fake, so they stay uniform all the way down. It's stretchy across the back of the bodice, so bigger-chested women would love this. My mom and I have completely different body types and the size large fits us both amazingly! I'm definitely going to try to order as many prints as I can!" —Courtney Clark

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and 35 colors and prints).

    16. A maxi dress magic trick because, well, it's actually a romper! No worries about windy days or wardrobe malfunctions here.,

    Promising review: "I love this romper dress. I could wear it every day. I get so many compliments on it. My friends have all been begging for one of these dresses. It does come wrinkly, but you can just iron it and then enjoy feeling like a goddess!" —Catherine Watkins

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes S–3XL and 13 prints).

    17. And while we're pulling off some fashion scams, a ruffled romper that totally has the swing of a dress.,

    Get it from Amazon $23.99 (available in sizes S–XL and eight colors)

    18. A dress made for twirling that, OK, will also look very nice while you stand still.

    reviewer wearing short-sleeve, button front maxi in white and colorful floral print

    Promising review: "I bought this dress on a whim and was a little skeptical about it, but I shouldn't have been. I've 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 so obsessed with it, I even bought two more in different colors. I highly recommend it!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $19.49+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and 23 prints).

    19. A tank dress perfect for when you have to wear clothes, but you don't want a ton of fabric touching your body. Btw, it has pockets!,

    Promising review: "This dress is so simple and versatile...I bought four! I wear it around the house almost like a house dress or lounging wear, around town, over a bathing suit, and even to bed. It is really comfortable. As far as fit goes, it is the smallest bit too low in the bust. I do find that I am pulling it up in the chest in public, which I’ve remedied with a bralette underneath. I ordered a medium. A medium fits looser and natural how I like, but I could probably fit into a small if I wanted a snugger fit, which might remedy the looser bust. The silhouette of the dress is a loose hourglass shape with a baggier hip and room in the gut. I love it!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in sizes XS–4XL and 38 styles).

    And check out a super similar dress that has a faux-wrap look on the top.

    20. A bell-sleeve dress – it'll work some serious overtime by being party in the front *and* the back.

    Confetti Boutique

    Promising review: "When I saw this dress, I had to have it. The sleeves are so elegant, the back of the dress is such a dream, and it has smock material making it comfortable and stretchy, but still looking so expensive in person! It's so high quality, I highly recommend this dress!" —Courtney J.

    Get it from Confetti Boutique for $48 (available in sizes S–L).

    21. A trapeze dress that'll work for most any occasion. It's time to shed those leggings and let those legs breathe!


    Promising review: "I wore this dress to my uncle’s wedding and got so many compliments. My cousin couldn’t believe what I paid and that I got it from Amazon. I will definitely be buying this dress again in different colors. Ladies, this dress is multifunctional so you can wear it for a more casual setting or dressed up! It’s very flowy so it’s extremely comfortable." —Reese W.

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in sizes XL–3XL and 29 colors/patterns).

    22. A breezy option you can don bare-legged or with tights once it starts feeling a little too breezy.,

    Promising review: "This dress is lovely! I was a little concerned about how it was going to fit but it's absolutely perfect. The stretch is just enough to enhance my figure and it's so soft. Only downside I saw was having to button every single one of those devil buttons, but it was easy enough, just tedious. I want every color now." —Colleen K

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and seven colors/patterns).

    23. A cute mini dress that'll help compensate for your inability to keep a living plant live.

    model wearing short sleeve floral dress with strappy sandals

    Promising review: "This dress is sooooo cute! I got a ton of compliments on it when I recently wore it to a baby shower. Loved the soft material, and it can easily be dressed up or down, from work to brunch. I bought my normal size, it fit perfectly. But I could have probably got away with a size smaller. Will order another color." —Elizabeth

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and five colors).

    24. A ruffly long-sleeve option with a high neck in case you wanna keep it a bit more covered up for a certain occasion *or* just because it's chilly and the spring weather is so dang unpredictable.,

    Promising review: "I love this dress! Flirty and fun, fits like a charm and I got a lot of compliments on it. I have extra long arms and legs (I’m Dutch) so I always worry about length of arms and where the skirt will land on my legs and both fit me great. Not too short at all." —Sheryl Miller

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

    25. A show-stopping slit if your main concern for a new dress is some sartorial drama. (Same.)
