    Promising review: "I liked these when I tried them on and after wearing them for a few hours, I ordered four more pairs. These are perhaps the most comfortable thing I have ever worn, that includes a pretty awesome cashmere lounge set. They looked cute running errands and were so perfect for chores of all kind, including outside on a hot winter day (gotta love Florida). I have made a lot of Amazon purchases (a whole lot, lots of lots), and these are definitely in my top five." —Kindle Customer

    Price: $15.99+ (available in sizes XS–5XL and in 21 colors)

    2. A cap-sleeve lace trim dress to spruce up your summer wardrobe if you're looking to emulate your favorite characters from Bridgerton this season.

    Promising review: "I bought this dress as a Pride and Prejudice dress-up! I was Lizzy. It was perfect! Super comfy. It has a built-in slip that works for mild undies." —Utah

    Price: $29+ (available in 11 colors and in sizes S–XXL)

    3. A pair of cargo pants, because they are officially back in style! And you know what cargo pants mean... more beloved pockets. 😍

    Promising review: "I bought these because I needed some super comfy pants and I bought several different brands to see which I liked — ranging from bargain to moderate to pricey. These fit the best (22W), were the most comfortable, and they're the pair I wash and re-wear the most! Will buy another pair soon!" —S.L.S.

    Price: $25.62+ (available in sizes 14–44 and in 11 colors)

    4. A faux-wrap dress that's both cozy and chic, perfect for your summer wardrobe as you head back to the office.,

    Promising review: "This dress is so comfortable! I got a size XL. I have a large chest and this prevented spillage. The dress is flowy and material is lightweight. This is a great purchase. It comes slightly below my knees and I am 5'8". The dress is attractive and comfortable. I had many compliments the few times I wore it and I will wear it many more times this spring and summer." —Tina

    Price: $32.99 (available in 22 colors and prints and in sizes S–XXL)

    5. A pair of relaxed fit capri pants, because capri pants — light cargo pants — are back! Consider pairing these pants with a tank top and platform sneakers for a cozy yet chic LES streetwear look.

    Promising review: "I purchased these instead of another pair of the blue capri pants and I was pleased to see they are comfortable and did not wrinkle. I'll be watching the LEE Women's Relaxed Fit Capris for other colors in my size (besides the blue jeans pants)." —JCF

    Price: $22+ (available in six colors and in sizes 4–18)

    6. A short-sleeve dress that basically is as cozy as your favorite T-shirt, yet still stylish enough to wear to a picnic in the park.

    Promising review: "Love this dress so much I plan on ordering another. The fit is PERFECT! The material is SO soft and all the wrinkles came out after hanging overnight. The dress has pockets but they lay nice, no bulging or puckering." —MrsChef

    Price: $23.99+ (available in sizes L–4XL and in 31 colors)

    7. A button-down tank with a tailored cut elevated enough for an afternoon tea party with friends, yet relaxed enough to lounge in all day while at the beach.


    Promising review: "Absolutely love this top! I got a ton of compliments and it fit perfectly and the quality was better than I expected. No one could believe I bought this top on Amazon!" —Ashley9217

    Price: $6.98+ (available in 17 colors and in sizes S–XXL)

    8. A printed midi skirt and tank set that you can easily wear to an outdoor birthday dinner, a barbecue, to the grocery store... really anywhere you'd like to flex your style.

    "I love a matching set because it takes most of the work out of putting an outfit together. And this one is such a great deal! I love how comfy and easy it is to wear. I was concerned about it being see-through, but it wasn't! It has a stretchy waist and a cute tie detail in the front of the skirt. For spring days, I just throw a denim jacket over it. And, of course, I plan to wear it all summer as well. I would 100% buy more colors in this — and there are so many to choose from!" —Kayla Boyd, BuzzFeed editor

    Promising review: "Absolutely LOVE this! I want to order a few more in different colors! It’s stylish, dress it up or wear it casual! I got lots of compliments. Very comfortable and soft. Moves nicely with the body! Very cool looking top!" —Jules

    Price: $18+ (available in sizes XL–5XL and 36 colors/prints).

    9. A maxi dress with not one, but *two* slits! That means that while you're be serving looks in this stylish dress, you'll be able to cool off in the summer breeze, too.,

    Promising review: "I wanted a comfy dress but still wanted to look cute as well. This definitely fits both descriptions. The dress has pockets. I am 5'8" and got the XL. Fits true to size (12–14) and length is good. I have worn with the front tied as well and get compliments each time I wear. The fabric is not see-through and held up well in the wash. It can be dressed up but I choose to wear it casually." —BargainBecky

    Price: $20.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and 25 colors/prints)

    10. A loose V-neck blouse to seamlessly flow from your Zoom-filled workday into a breezy date night dinner with the boo.

    Promising review: "Great item at a super reasonable price. I was looking for something fun and flowy for spring and this is perfect. It fits as stated, product description was right on and it washes and wears easily. Recommended for sure." —Care Walter

    Price: $22.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and in 17 colors)

    11. A sun dress so you can feel like you're wearing pajamas, but will look as if you spent an ample amount of time getting ready. And guess what? It has pockets! Who doesn't love a dress with pockets?,

    Promising review: "This is a really cute dress for summer or spring. I ordered it in white and in the sunflower print. I love the waistline of this dress. It’s NOT an empire waist which typically falls just under the bust. On me, the waistline falls to my true waist, closer to the belly button." —Laura R.

    Price: $20.39+ (available in sizes XS–XXXL, in two cuts, and 20 colors)

    12. A pair of palazzo pants to allow the summer breeze to flow, while still making you look put together if you're heading to the office.,

    Promising review: "These pants as so comfortable and flowy! I stepped outside of my usual skinny jean outfit to try this style and I never want to take them off! They are great casual pants for work, and can be dressed up for the evening with a fancy shirt and heels. They are as comfortable as pajamas, without looking like it." —Nash

    Price: $27.07+ (available in 24 colors and in sizes XS-XXXL)

    13. A V-neck button tunic, because you have every right in the world to be cozy and en vogue at the same time.,

    Promising review: "Love, love, love it! I loved it the moment I saw those cute little buttons. It’s got that really soft and stretchy jersey feeling material." —ZaniiD

    Price: $20.56+ (available in sizes 1X–4X and in 11 colors and in sizes)

    14. An off-the-shoulder scalloped dress to have you ready for any rooftop hangout that lasts well into the night this summer.

    Promising review: "I ordered the size I normally wear and it fits great! Got it for vacation and ended up using it as a swimsuit cover-up as well; the elastic in the waist and shoulders make it easy to get on and off." —Kira T.

    Price: $15.50+ (available in sizes 0XL–4XL and in 18 colors)

    15. A short sleeve dress so you can channel your inner Jane Birkin. Plus, you can allocate the money you save to more fruitful adventures in life.,

    Promising review: "I never felt so great in a dress! I never buy things online because I have a pretty large chest and it’s hard to find things that fit right. I can’t wear dresses that have little straps because they offer no support, and I’m not a huge fan of having my arms out. But this dress was perfect! High quality and pretty cheap for a dress that looks much more expensive on." —Nora Schammel

    Price: $19.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and in 19 colors)

    16. A V-neck dress that hits right above the knee, making it perfect for those days where the summer heat is simply unbearable, but you still want to look cute!,

    Promising review: "Love this dress!! I am 34 weeks pregnant and ordered an XL and it fit right over the bump and was so comfy and not too short. I think it is true to size and very nice material. I wore it to a wedding and got a ton of compliments." —Ben

    Price: $14.35+ (available in 38 colors and prints and in sizes XS–XXL)

    17. A three-quarter-sleeve tunic shirt to wear to your seaside date with lovers, friends, or yourself. (Take yourself out on dates, it's amazing!)

    Promising review: "I want one in EVERY color! The fit is awesome and the feel of the materials is thicker than regular cotton." —K. Brazzy

    Price: $19.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and 13 colors)

    18. A floral blouse with a henley neckline that will surely work well with a pair of linen shorts on the weekends, or under a blazer during the work week.,

    Promising review: "This particular top is absolutely the most comfortable fabric I've ever had across my skin! Summertime and I do not get along because I hate the heat, LOL. This top is not only beautiful, but will help me bear the heat this year! I'm going to be buying another one of these as soon as possible!" —Alise

    Price: $19.99+ (available in sizes 1XL–4XL and in 14 colors)

    19. A strapless maxi dress you'll have so much fun sprucing up or dressing down. Plus, it has a slit in its skirt! Slits are great for amping up style while keeping things breezy in the summer heat.

    a reviewer styling a dress three ways: first on its own, second with a blazer and hat, and third with a t-shirt over. The dress is strapless with a slit in the leg

    Promising review: "I bought this to wear currently at the end of my pregnancy and afterwards. For the July heat it’s been so perfect. The material is so lightweight it’s like wearing nothing at all, and it fits over my pregnant belly with no problem. After the baby it will be great for easy nursing access and total comfort. I have been living in this, from wearing it to a hot outdoor party and parade, to just bumming around the house, but could just as easily dress it up for going out to dinner. For the price you can’t go wrong with this cute, effortless dress." —Lauren

    Price: $24.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and in 13 colors/prints)

    20. A surplice dress that makes it look like you spent a long time getting ready, even if you only have about five minutes before your string of Zoom meetings for the day.

    reviewer wearing the animal print short sleeve dress with sneakers

    Promising review: "I love this dress! I have to wear black dresses for work so I'm always on the lookout for a versatile LBD I can feel good in if I run errands after work. The material of this dress is nice and it looked just like in the picture. It fit a little bit big on me because I'm on the lower end of plus size and have a small waist. I added a belt and it's perfect though. My favorite part is the length — I'm 5'11" with wide hips so dresses always fit really short on me. The fact that it's plus size means it's actually not super short." —Darla

    Price: $20.99+ (available in sizes XS–6XL and in seven colors)

    21. A striped maxi dress with a bare back to provide you with extra coolness on particularly hot days.,

    Promising review: "The dress is very comfy. Perfect fit. I’m 5’10 and it was still long enough to wear heels!! I would recommend a solid color if you would like a more formal look. I got the striped dress and it’s good for a summer day party type of event." —Ashley

    Price: $29.99+ (available in size XS–XXL and in 25 colors/prints)

    22. A pair of linen shorts that are as breezy as they are comfortable. Linen is the perfect fabric for the warmer weather as it is breathable, while still looking effortlessly chic.

    a reviewer wearing navy linen shorts with a white tank top

    Promising review: "I absolutely love these shorts. I bought them in all the colors. I was headed to Jamaica and needed some comfy shorts. These were perfect as casual shorts on the beach or a bit more dressed up when paired with a cute top and cute shoes. They are so freakin comfy! Love them and as I said, I bought them in every color. They fit true to size I would say." —zgirl

    Price: $22.90 (available in sizes XS–XXL and in seven colors)

    23. A pair of color block capri yoga pants, because is there anything in this world better than feeling the comfort of yoga pants while still looking ~edgy~?

    a reviewer wearing tri-colored yoga pants with a capri-length leg

    Promising review: "Fit perfectly, went for a five mile bike ride my first time wearing them, and they stayed perfectly in place and didn't get too hot. They look super cute, too!" —Tracy Ann

    Price: $14.98+ (available in sizes 1XL–5XL and in five colors)

    24. A pair of high-waisted jean shorts that you'll sure live in all summer long. These shorts are perfect for either pairing with your favorite band tee or dressing up with a tank top and blazer.,

    Promising review: "I'm IN LOVE with these shorts. Being a short girl with an hourglass figure, I found it was impossible to find high-waisted shorts! They wouldn't be stretchy enough, or they would stretch enough to get over the legs but then leave a gap in the back! These are stretchy.. ahh perfectly stretchy! No struggle getting them on. I got a billion compliments on them the first time I wore them out!" —Melody

    Price: $12.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and in 15 colors)

    25. A button top, because having a tailored look doesn't mean you have to be uncomfortable all day long.

    Promising review: "This blouse is gorgeous. Very dressy or casual depending on how worn. I loved it so much I purchased two more in other colors. It really is a stunning blouse. The material is beautiful and hangs so nice when worn." —Michele

    Price: $21.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and in three colors)

    26. A scoop collar T-shirt that luckily comes in all your favorite colors. Dress it up with a skirt or down with some flowing linen pants — the styling opportunities are endless!,

    Promising review: "These shirts are light, thin, but very soft and comfortable. I absolutely love them! I have four already and am ordering more! Probably every color!" —Jessi

    Price: $12.98+ (available in sizes L–4XL and in 31 colors)

    27. A pair of bike shorts to pair with your favorite vintage band tee for a chill, Brooklyn-esque outfit.

    a reviewer wearing the bike shorts under their dress

    Promising review: "These were EXACTLY what I was looking for! I wear these under dresses for work, or for doing chores around the house, or working out. They do not roll up on me, even when I am jogging. They feel substantial, a bit thicker than typical cheap leggings, but not so much as to feel bulky or noticeable under dresses." —StellaStars

    Price: $9.25+ (available in sizes 1XL–5XL and in two colors)

    28. A flowing maxi dress that *screams* beach, but make it trendy. You can easily wear this over your swimsuit to a weekend seaside getaway, or pair it with a cardigan for an outdoor party this summer.,

    Promising review: "I love this dress. Now I want it in every color. I am 5’11” and this dress is actually LONG! You can also tie up the bottom to give it a boho look. The material is thin but not see-through." —Liz

    Price: $18.99+ (available in 20 colors and prints and in sizes XS-5XL)

    29. And a pair of drawstring joggers, because there's nothing like rocking a pair of pants that look chic, yet feel like sweats.,

    Promising review: "LOVE these pants. Super lightweight and comfy cozy. Go for it! You’ll be happy with purchase." —Cheryl

    Price: $25.98+ (available in sizes S–XL and in 18 colors)
