It's soft and the perfect weight. I have broad shoulders so I was a little worried that the shoulders would be too small but they are perfect.

    Promising review: “I bought this in the rust in a small. Knox Rose usually runs large on my 5'2" frame so I downsized. It's going to be perfect to run around in. Dress it up or down. I'll wear a half slip under it since it's nice and light. Don't let the white color fool you. The rust is a hit!” —Annr

    Price: $29.99 (available in sizes XS–XXL and in two colors/prints)

I went back and bought the orange/red and the neon yellow. So stinking cute and will be perfect for summer in Texas. It runs on the bigger side, so just size one down from your regular size.” —Deanne

    Price: $12 (available in sizes XS–4X and in 10 colors)

    26. A gauzy tiered design with a tiered skirt perfect for those days you're not feeling anything in your closet. Pull this out and style it with your favorite wedge sandals, headband, and earrings.

    Promising review: “Bought this dress in every color. True to size... maybe slightly big. I tried the XL but the armpit holes were too big. I will be living in this over the summer.” —Jane

    Price: $20 (available in sizes XS–XXL and in seven colors)

    27. A sleeveless maxi dress that you *need* to make room for in your closet. I won't take too much of your time, but this is so easy to style, can be worn year around, and is an instant mood booster. It's everything you need in your life in one dress.

    Promising review: “I got the pink super springy and I got the black. I like the gauze fabric. Perfect for summer and an easy packed item. I would consider getting one more color.” —JC

    Price: $20 (available in sizes XS–1X and in eight colors/prints)

    29. A ruffle-sleeved dress that comes in a neon green color because everyone needs at least one fluorescent wardrobe item. You're going to stand out in this dress, but who said that was a bad thing?

    Target, Via Target

    Promising review: “I bought it in light green and the color is true to what you see online. The best part is that it is not see through! I fit between a small and a medium and went with a small. It fits well with a little wiggle room but not too tight. Could have gone with a medium for a loose and boxy fit. This was definitely a pleasant surprise. I might even buy in another color!” —Target Reviewer

    Price: $25 (available in sizes XS–4X and in five colors)

    30. A long-sleeve maxi dress with floral print, ruffle sleeves, and a high neckline so versatile you can *spring* into any season or occasion with it on. Did I mention it has pockets?


    Promising review: "I have this dress in both prints and love the style. The medium fits well with some room. The built-in slip mentioned by a previous reviewer isn’t too snug. I machine-washed and ironed the black print and can say it held up well." —deedee

    Price: $39.99 (available in sizes XS–4X and in two colors)

    31. A floral print dress with flutter sleeves that'll make you feel like you are spending the weekend in the Hamptons. Add a little sweetness to your look with your favorite sandal heels or wedges.

    Price: $27.99 (available in sizes XS–2XL and three colors)

    32. A sleeveless dress with a dreamy back bowtie sure to have everyone *wrapped* around your finger.


    Promising review:This dress totally exceeded my expectations. The tie in the back adds an even more stylish touch. It is slightly fitted around the bust but then flowy on the bottom and the material is lightweight and the tie ring is gorgeous. The length in mine hits a few inches above my ankle.” —AddictedToTarget

    Price: $34.99 (available in sizes XS–XXL and two colors)
