    1. A vintage-inspired swing dress (with pockets!!) you'll want to wear to every wedding this season.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I ordered this dress for a wedding recently and it was better than expected! Based on other reviews, I ordered a XXL and it fit well (generally wear a 12-14 and 36G bra for reference). The fabric and cut are very forgiving and the pockets are a major plus! I got a lot of compliments on the dress and wish I had a reason to wear it again!" —Stephanie Guthrie

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This dress is beautiful! It's made of a really nice material that's thick and not see-through at all. The embroidery on the chest and sleeves is almost perfect. It hits at a great length — it's not too short and not too long. There are so many different ways you can wear this dress, from dressing it up for a wedding with some heels to wearing it to a BBQ with some flats or sandals. I will definitely be recommending this dress and wearing it a lot!" —Kelsey

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I spent hours online and combing through racks at stores trying to find a nice, simple dress to wear to a wedding. Finally, I stumbled upon this dress on Amazon and ordered it in black. Let me just say that it's just what I was looking for. The material is a cotton-spandex and has nice quality stitching. Also, unlike most off the shoulder dresses/shirts, the sleeves remain off the shoulder and I don't have to constantly pull them back down. So A+ for anyone looking for something inexpensive but chic." —Sam Ander

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

    12. An affordable three-piece suit with an adjustable waist that'll give your look a pop of color and make you feel like a star.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "I ordered this for a wedding since the color is exactly what I need and it is cheaper than a suit rental. Came in two days with Prime. The quality is pretty good. I ordered a US medium. It is a bit tight in the buttocks and shoulders, but not enough to warrant me exchanging for a large. The waist band is adjustable, so there is some room for error if you are unsure if the pants will fit your waist. For reference: I am 5'9", 170 lbs, I wear pants 34" waist and 32" length, and wear a size 42 jacket." —Josh S

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and 12 colors).

    Check out BuzzFeed's full write-up on this dress.

    Promising review: "I'm one of those people that 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 and it hugs you in the right spots. 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 $15.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 33 prints).

    20. A slim-fit three-piece suit worth the time it takes to get your measurements just right — order this babe instead of a more pricey suit, and you'll save a ton!

    amazon.com
