    Promising review: “This dress is incredible. I’m 39 weeks pregnant and it’s too cute on my bump. I bought it because it had a matching newborn outfit and button-up shirt for my little boyfriend. With the flow of the dress I would imagine it fits great postpartum too! Can’t wait to wear this set with my littles!” —Anna Grace

    Promising review: “This dress is perfect for spring. You can dress it up, wear it to church, or wear it as is for a day out. It’s not a fitted dress. I am pretty tall and the dress was long enough to keep me comfortable! The shade of blue is so cute.” —Jozy

    Price: $25 (available in sizes XS–XXL and in three colors/prints)

    4. An airy mini dress with a smocked bodice and tiered skirt so comfortable, you might just buy a second one to sleep in.

    Promising review: “This is so cute! I did end up going up a size — I am usually a medium but I liked the large better. The peach is a very pretty and delicate color. It also isn’t too see-through like dresses in that color usually are!” —Ddb6995

    Price: $25 (available in sizes XS–XXL and in four colors/prints)

    5. An all-over floral print dress because a pocket full of daises isn't enough to show your love for your favorite season. This dress will shower you in flowers and secret admirers, too.

    Promising review: “Perfect length! It’s not too high and it’s not too short, hits right at the knees. Shapes perfectly to the body! Light material, perfect for summer. I really do recommend. Does come a little small, would suggest to go up one size.” —anahi

    Price: $25 (available in sizes XS–XL)

    6. A chiffon dress with ruffle accents sure to make getting ready for any daytime event so much easier. Keeping things simple doesn't mean you'll go unnoticed, in fact, it'll be quite the opposite.

    Promising review: “Nice lightweight summer dress in cute prints! I would recommend sizing up if you have bigger chest. I bought medium and large and prefer large because it’s looser fit up top” —Tiffany

    Price: $34.99 (available in sizes XS–XXL and in four colors/prints)

    9. A sleeveless ballet dress perfect for the days you don't want to dance around any topic. This dress gets straight to the point, and goes above and beyond when it comes to doing its job.


    Promising review: “I bought two in different colors and I wish I'd bought more. These are so comfortable and while the material has enough heft that these should last awhile, it feels lightweight on. If they restock I'm buying more. They run a little bit big.” —Juniper

    Price: $20 (available in sizes XS–4X and eight colors)

    10. A tiered tank dress with a dainty floral design sure to have you showered in compliments.

    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–4X and in two colors/prints)

    12. A multi-tiered dress because you always look *baller* and this dress just solidifies that statement. Complete the look with your favorite high heels and gold accessories.

    Price: $36.99 (available in sizes XS–4X and three colors)

    13. A T-shirt dress that'll brighten any day because you'll look like a ray of sunshine walking down the street.

    Promising review: “This dress is so soft and comfy. I got so many compliments when I wore it to work. After I wore it to work, everyone went and bought one for themselves. 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)

    14. 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 eight colors)

    15. A long-sleeve T-shirt dress that is so versatile, you can wear it to sleep or to the store. It's great for the days you have a lot on your plate (every day for me), and those times when the only adult decision you want to make is what to eat for dinner.


    Promising review: "Comfortable enough to wear at home but also nice enough to wear out, well made, and rich colors that hold up in the wash. It's perfect for the colder weather without getting overheated" —Ruth

    16. A midi slip dress with a V-neckline for the days you want to put effort into getting ready but you stayed up late last night scrolling through TikTok. Don't worry, I got you. Finish off this look with your favorite accessories and slip-on sandals.


    Promising review: “This is absolutely perfect; the neckline is not too deep so you could definitely wear this to work, but if you feel uncomfortable doing that just throw on a sweater with a belt and then you are all set for the chilly weather!! It’s the perfect length for ankle booties, flats, or heels depending on your mood.” —Jerseymom8

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

    Price: $20 (available in sizes XS–3X and in eight colors/prints)

    19. 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)

    20. A sleeveless ruffle-hem dress made with a soft, stretchy fabric sure to keep you comfortable all day. Don't worry, the bow-tie waist, textured fabric, and pockets will add that fashionista flair you are looking for.


    Promising review: “This maxi is super breezy and lovely for spring! I purchased lavender in store. I'm glad I did because it runs pretty big so I was able to size down. If you prefer a looser fit, though, go with your normal size. The fabric is textured and lightweight. And, there are pockets! Niiiiice.” — Sooks

    Price: $27.99 (available in sizes XS–4X and in eight colors)

    21. A tie-back dress that is so comfortable, you can *lean back, lean back* in this dress. If you don't know that song, it's all good. Just know you'll be be in good hands when wearing this dress.

    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)

    Promising review: “The colors are beautiful and it feels quality. The length hits about 3 inches above the knee. I do not feel the sleeves were too puffy, the puff part at the top makes it so adorable. It is not see-through in the white part. It has pockets!” —AddictedToTarget
