    Promising review: "I truly enjoy the fit and the versatility of the garment. I have worn it to work with a black cami underneath. Looks classy and sassy. Then I have worn it a bit dressed up with jewelry and a belt. Wow! I have received many compliments from family, co-workers, and total strangers. I love the slanted pockets. Large enough to adequately carry car keys or phone without them falling out." —Jenifer Green

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and eight colors).

    2. A satin midi dress for all the comfort of your favorite night dress but with the added benefit that you can actually wear this outside with heels.

    Forever 21

    Get it from Forever 21 for $28 (originally $35, available in sizes 0X–3X and in three colors).

    3. A simple T-shirt dress to run your errands in when putting on literally anything else seems like too much work. It's also the perfect base layer for your low-key cold weather days — just throw a layer under and over for a relaxed, cozy look.,

    Promising review: "This is a great dress! It is long enough that you wouldn't need to wear leggings with it if you didn't want to. The fabric is thick enough, so not too see-through, which is great! If it is any indication of how well I liked it, I bought another one in a different color after receiving this one! It washed up perfectly, too! Looks like a new go-to dress with flip-flops, etc. One more note — the neckline and sleeves are nice, too. The neck fits a little closer so it isn't too wide, nice dress!" —TLSmile

    Get it from Amazon for $20.91+ (available in sizes S–3XL and 30 colors).

    4. A soft and stretchy maxi dress (with POCKETS!!!) — its fabric makes it comfy enough to wear from day to night. Plus, just look at how many colors this comes in — you could literally wear this everyday and no one would ever dare to question your effortless style.

I add a necklace or a blue jean jacket and BOOM! Ready to go!" —Meredith

    reviewer wearing the yellow floral mini dress

    Promising review: "WOW! I thought this might be a risky purchase, not knowing exactly the quality, size, texture, stitching and all the things you worry about when you order from a small picture. I really went out on a limb and got one in red and one in black. I WAS AMAZED! These dresses exceed any expectation I had and are two of the most comfortable, well fitting, go-to dresses I own. I LOVE THEM! Quality is A+, color is perfect, and they aren't just beautiful, but they are very soft and fun to wear, and feel great. They can be changed up with a jacket, belt, or even a long-sleeved turtleneck. The length was just as shown. Not too short or too long. I wish I had a criticism so my review would be more credible, but I just have nothing negative to say. I feel sure you will LOVE these dresses, especially for the price!" —Maria-Elisavetia Micajah

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and 35 patterns).

    Reviewer wearing white and floral patterned dress

Perfect summer dress, lightweight material that breathes." —Nicole M

    Reviewer wearing olive colored dress

It doesn't hug you and the length is as shown in the picture. I have washed it and hung up to dry, so I'm not sure what the dryer would do to it. I plan to purchase another in the spring." —Cassie Hudson
