    1. A fun tropical leaf-print maxi to make you feel so confident, it'll be like you've got the world in the ~palm~ of your hand.,

    Promising review: "I never leave reviews! Get yourself this dress! I cannot recommend it enough! I'm working through a lot of self-esteem issues, but this dress made me feel BEAUTIFUL, sexy, and confident. All things I haven't felt in a while. Seriously, wearing it I felt like an ethereal wood nymph roaming the streets of Paris. It definitely gave me a much-needed confidence boost." —BRENDA RODRIGUEZ

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99+ (available in sizes L-3XL and in 11 styles).

    2. A knockout one-piece swimsuit beloved by over 2,000 reviewers and guaranteed to make you look pinup perfect.,

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

    Promising review: "This is the most perfect bathing suit. I wear a 16/20 depending on brand and have a VERY difficult time finding bathing suits that fit the way I want. I took the advice of other reviewers and purchased the 3XL. IT BLEW ME OUT OF THE WATER, HOLY HECK!!! The fit is, in a word, perfect. I'm very glad the bust area has more fabric, as previous reviews have stated, since I'm not even close to lacking in that department. I may just buy this in every color." —Emma Maas

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in sizes S-3XL and in 24 styles including some with criss-cross straps).

    3. A puff-sleeve Wayf lace top to lend a luxe Victorian vibe to everything from basic blue jeans to glam skirts. IDK about you, but something about a puff sleeve *always* makes me feel like royalty.


    Some reviewers say it may be a bit small in the chest if you're busty!

    Promising review: "This blouse is so beautiful. It gets caught on things (because of the lace), so be careful. Seriously though, this blouse gets LOTS of compliments! Good quality." —Susan Kimsey

    Get it from Amazon for $89+ (available in sizes XXS-XL and in eight colors)

    4. A super fun crop top and skirt set that basically makes twirling and taking an OOTD pic *required*. Your favorite style Instagrammer has met their match.,

    Since it's two pieces, you can also break it up and use the top and skirt separately to create tons of fabulous looks.

    Promising review: "I am EMOTIONAL about how great this is. I'm a bodacious and curvaceous young lady and finding anything that looks good online is a constant struggle. But I want to wear this every day. If I were in a cartoon, I would want this to be the outfit that I have a closet full of. I have G-cup boobs and tube tops are my own personal hell. BUT, somehow, this sat just right. I wore a strapless bra under it and I'm just so excited to wear this out. Did I mention the skirt is perfect? It’s kinda long, but I wore it with some platform-y wedges (I’m 5'6") and it made it look even cuter! Who gave me permission?! Just get it, okay? That’s the point here." —Sara

    Get it from Amazon for $28.98+ (available in sizes S-XL and in nine prints).

    5. An OMG-worthy floral jumpsuit with ruffled shoulders, because there's nothing like the perfect jumpsuit for a confidence boost. Especially if said jumpsuit is so fashion-forward, you could easily have just stepped out of the pages of Vogue.

    Promising review: "I purchased this jumpsuit and wore it out for Sunday brunch. I got so many compliments. The outfit was a showstopper. Very well-made. Thick fabric, so get it before the weather gets too warm in late spring." —Olivia B.

    Get it from Eloquii for $159.95 (available in sizes 14-20; waitlist available for sizes 22-28).

    6. A beachy wrap dress in a gorgeous print to help you start a ~pattern~ of great and confidence-boosting summer style.,

    Promising review: "I have never been more excited to write a review. Being short and curvy it’s really hard to find something that fits. This dress fit like a glove and made me look absolutely beautiful. Even my 16-year-old son said so, and you know how hard it is to get compliments out of a 16-year-old boy. So I ordered two more." —Kimberly Jenkins

    Get it from Amazon for $32.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 20 patterns).

    7. A sultry lace bodysuit ready to prove you don't need to splurge at a fancy lingerie store (or have an S.O. to dress up for) to feel hotter than Michael B. Jordan drinking coffee in a desert.


    It's got an adjustable strappy back, and reviewers recommend sizing up!

    Promising review: "I've never posted a review before but I felt like I needed to do it this time. I’m not a confident person when I’m talking about my body, but I felt AMAZING in this bodysuit! Do a favor for yourself buy it — show your curves and feel amazing like I did!" —A.

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in sizes S-4XL and in 11 colors).

    8. A pair of stunning embellished headbands that'll basically make bad hair days a thing of the past. Sure, you skipped a shower and you're wearing a tee you've had since 2009, but with one of these on? You'll be the most polished person on the Zoom meeting.


    Promising review: "These headbands are lovely! They easily dress up any outfit. They are comfortable to wear and don't cause headaches. I love adding this to a simple outfit as a statement accessory. I have worn it with a fitted black top and jeans and received many compliments. I recommend these stunning headbands!" —❤AMommy👩‍👧‍👦

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $36.99.

    9. A romantic and Bridgerton-esque puff-sleeve pastel maxi dress fit for a promenade with a certain Duke. Look at you, your grace — no doubt you're the diamond of the season.,

    Some reviewers also styled it with the sleeves worn off the shoulder, and several reviewers say it worked as maternity wear, too!

    Promising review: "Ethereally beautiful!! This dress is absolutely LOVELY. It’s so lightweight, breezy, and comfortable. It fits perfectly, and the bodice has plenty of stretch so if you’re in between sizes, you could go either way. I actually sized down because I wanted to wear it on the shoulders and didn’t want the sleeves slipping off, but I didn’t have an issue with that at all. It’s wrinkly when it arrives, but a quick steam makes it look so much nicer and more expensive than it is. I got the sage green color and it’s not see through, it’s beautiful. (I actually returned it in favor of a color I thought I’d wear more, but if green is your fave then you’ll love it). Get this dress!" —Laura

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in sizes XS-XL and in 14 colors).

    10. An oversized yet elegant claw clip so you can feel effortlessly chic and pretty even if you've barely brushed your hair — just snap this baby over your messy updo and call it fabulous.

    Fibs and Fables

    This clip is from Black woman-owned, DC-based small business Fibs and Fables, which focuses on creating gorgeous hair accessories to help people of all hair types feel fabulous. They actually named this style after Daphne Bridgerton, so it would be a positively perfect pair with the dress above.

    Get it from Fibs & Fables for $26 (available in four styles).

    11. A super affordable, striped tie-front bikini that people will knot be able to stop complimenting — and you will knot be able to stop checking yourself out in it.,

    Promising review: "This bathing suit is so cute! It fits me perfectly and I’ve been getting compliments every time I wear it. It fits me like a glove. If you are small-chested I could see the straps being an issue, because they aren’t adjustable. I jumped off a cliff in this bikini and it stayed in place." —Courtney H.

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in sizes XS-XL and in 14 colors and prints).

    12. An absolutely beautiful and twirl-worthy printed maxi dress you'll be so excited to rock to every spring and summer outdoor event. The beautiful weather will be nowhere near as gorgeous as *you*.,

    The buttons stop around your knee, so the bottom's free to flow dramatically in the breeze. It's no wonder this beauty has over 2,000 positive reviews!

    Promising review: "I bought this dress on a whim and was a little skeptical about it, but I shouldn't have been. I've never received so many compliments on a dress before. I wore it on a trip to the Biltmore Estate with my husband and in-laws, and we honestly couldn't get through the day without someone stopping me every few minutes to ask where I got my dress or to tell me how gorgeous it was. It flowed beautifully on that windy day. I'm so obsessed with it, I even bought two more in different colors. I highly recommend it!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $33.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 23 prints).

    13. A fashion influencer-worthy leopard print slip skirt possessed of the magical power to transform anything you pair it with — from a tee and sneakers to an oversized sweater to a crop top — into a high-fashion look *instantly.* Plus, the silky material will make ya feel extra glam.,

    Promising review: "I'm a bit skeptical when I see something that looks identical to an Insta-famous article of clothing for such a low price. I decided to take a chance on this skirt and I'm so glad I did! It looks exactly like the picture (and all the ones on social media!) and it fit me true to size. The elastic waistband means you can pull it up for a high-waisted look that falls just below the knee or pull it down to your low hip and make it more of a maxi skirt. Does it have a simple elastic waistband? Yeah. Is it real silk? Heavens no. Is it thin material? Yup — but not see through. At. All. Is it shiny and polyester? You betcha. But that, IMHO, is what makes it look and act like real silk. Seriously, once it's on, it looks so luxe. And it's perfect for summer being so light and airy. Hmm maybe even in the colder months, too, with tights and tall boots....Anyway, I really wish there were more patterns and colors in this style of skirt, becuase I would snap them all up in a heartbeat." —Rsouza001

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99 (available in sizes S-XL).

    14. A gorgeous polka dot headband to help you channel some major Pretty Woman vibes. How's this for a plan next weekend? Step 1: watch the movie wearing this beauty and your most fabulous dress. Step 2: Get in a bubble bath and sing Prince at the top of your lungs. Step 3: Remember to check your fire escape for a young Richard Gere.

Hi yes hello, I would like to join the club.

    Get it from Autumn Adeigbo for $95.

    15. A head-turning, lace-up tulle top you definitely shouldn't give the ~cold shoulder~, since it would even make a pair of jeans or leggings look basically red carpet-worthy.,

    The straps are adjustable and some reviewers recommend sizing up!

    Promising review: "I absolutely looooved this blouse. Wore it to a company holiday party and received so many compliments on it. The material is sort of a tutu type — it isn’t scratchy or anything. There’s no stretch to it, but if you get the right size, you can adjust the straps and how much cleavage you want to show in the front. Loved it!!" —Arkel Anita

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in sizes 4/6-10 and in seven colors).

    16. A classic trench so your outerwear will be just as gorgeous as the rest of your outfit, and you'll still look and feel chic on chilly spring days when you've gotta bundle up.


    Some reviewers say it runs large!

    Promising review: "I've been re-doing my wardrobe to a capsule/classic feel. I want things that are quality, stylish, and timeless. If that's what you're looking for, you NEED this jacket. It's not a rain jacket, it's a staple that you will have in your collection for years. I love the color, I love the weight, and I love how it looks." —KelseyNoelle13

    Get it from Everlane for $148 (available in sizes XS-XL).

    17. A hot hot hot embroidered lace bodysuit that comes with a cute matching choker for an outfit that'll turn heads even if you never leave your bedroom (whether you're wearing it for ~sexy times~ or just taking some fabulous mirror selfies for the 'Gram)., Via

    It's got adjustable straps in the back!

    Promising review: "Love love this piece and it makes me feel so confident and sexy!!" —KeeKee

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 12 colors).

    18. A romantic tulle skirt, because everyone needs one in their closet, IMHO. I mean, what other wardrobe item could ever match this for making you feel like you're a little kid playing dress-up again?

    20. A ruffled floral midi so stunning, it'll have you crying tiers of joy., Amazon

    Promising review: "I can’t say enough good things about this dress! I love it!! The fit is amazing. The material is lovely. The top, front, and bottom of the dress are lined with a light material, which is perfect. You still get the flowy feel. I just want to twirl around in this dress. My young adult daughter loves it as well!! I couldn’t be happier. It will be my go-to dress this summer" —Carla J. Reid

    Get it from Amazon for $30.35+ (available in sizes S-XL and in six colors).

    21. A fun off-the-shoulder maxi dress with a hidden surprise — it's actually a romper! You'll feel so glam letting the fabric billow regally in your wake, without having to worry about a spring breeze heading your way and causing a Marilyn Monroe moment.,

    In fact, a breeze would probably only make this baby look even more photo shoot-worthy! And psst...some reviewers recommend sizing up. Also check out more of the best spring dresses on Amazon.

    Promising review: "I love this romper dress. I could wear it every day. I get so many compliments on it. My friends have all been begging for one of these dresses. It does come wrinkly, but you can just iron it and then enjoy feeling like a goddess!" —Catherine Watkins

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in sizes S-3XL and in 14 prints).

    24. Super chic kitten heel booties sure to make you wanna strut like you mean it — and with low enough heels that you actually can.


    Promising review: "I'm loving these boots. I can’t wear high heels anymore and was despaired by the thought of never having sexy boots again. But these are sexy AND comfortable. The leather is nice and I'm very pleased with this purchase!!" —AEinAZ

    Promising review: "This dress far surpassed my expectations! I ordered my regular size and it fit like a glove! My BFF's 15-year-old daughter said I look like a modern day Cinderella (she totally made my day!). The dress is beautifully made and the model pictures do this dress no justice. I would buy this dress a 100 times over!!" —anitaj

    Get it from Amazon for $38.98+ (available in sizes S-XL and in three colors).

    27. A richly-hued floral bow blouse sure to catch every single eye, whether you pop it on with jeans or tuck it into a skirt.

    Get it from Torrid for $298 (available in sizes 10-30).

    29. A beautiful floral duster wrap you can toss over anything — from a bathing suit to jeans to a cocktail dress — to elevate your look in seconds.,

    It's got over 1,500 positive reviews!

    Promising review: "I love dusters and this one is a wonderful addition to my summer wardrobe. It's a versatile piece that works as the perfect cover-up over jeans or a strapless dress. The colors are vibrant and the fabric is light and fluid. The first time I wore this it was a warm yet windy day. I felt like a goddess as the duster waved in the wind behind me as I walked. I'm 5-foot-4.5-inches tall and this duster falls almost to my ankles." —SS

    Get it from Amazon for $19.77+ (available in sizes S-5X and in 33 styles).

    30. Luxe-looking jeweled mules (isn't that fun to say?) that are so glam up top but have flexible, grippy soles on the bottom. Warning: slipping these on with pretty much any outfit may come with the side effect of making you feel cuter than ever before.

    Katy Herman/BuzzFeed,

    Reviewers recommend sizing up! I recently treated myself to these and forgot to do so, but they still fit well (my heel is just a teeeeeny bit over the edge in the back, but I don't mind because they stay on my foot more easily and the front part stretches with wear). I'm honestly obsessed — I can't believe how affordable they were, especially considering how high fashion they look. They just make me smile and make me feel extra cute in every outfit!!! The grippy soles give a nice cushion and are for some reason printed with fruit designs? Can't explain it but only adds to the happy feet feels these give me. Oh, and they're compliment magnets on Insta, too.

    Promising review: "Better than the photo! I actually love the look of this shoe even more than I thought I would! It goes with so many things and looks more expensive than it is. I took off one star because it is slightly harder to keep on my foot than most of my slides. Not a ton of padding, so not much for my foot to grip. But it's only a small issue and I got used to it. If you are used to wearing slides this should not be an issue. Super cute shoe overall!" —carrie

    Get them from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes 5.5-10.5 and in three colors and prints).

    31. A Blair Waldorf-worthy watercolor print belted dress basically made for a (future) night of dancing with friends, following an evening of dancing in the mirror.
