    1. A long-sleeved T-shirt dress that seems basic, but is there anything basic about over 4,600 positive reviews? Didn't think so.,

    Promising review: "This dress fits GREAT and is so versatile!! I was able to create at least 10 different outfits with this dress. The quality is so perfect! I also ordered it in three other colors: brown, green, and rose pink!" —Sequeena Thompson

    Price: $9.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 29 colors and prints)

    2. An aww-worthy belted number in a quirky print like lemons or kitties that'll make standing out from the crowd a ~cinch~.


    Promising review: "I LOVE this dress!!!! I can't believe how great it is for the price. The first day I wore it, I got five compliments on it. I ordered a large because I'm 5'8" and always have a hard time finding dresses that work for my height, but the length was perfect! I feel confident wearing this dress." —Megan Jackson

    Price: $27.99 (available in sizes XS-XL and in eight prints)

    3. An ombre tie-dye dress so comfy, your favorite tee will decide to retire.,

    It's got over 1,500 positive reviews!

    Promising review: "I'm always looking for interesting, casual, easy pieces, and I love this one. I'm 5'3", so I wasn't sure how the length would be, but it's awesome — not too short and not too long. The cut has more of a bell shape than I was expecting, but the drape of the material helps quite a bit and it's cute worn loose or cinched. The material itself has nice drape, but a nice touch of structure, too. I'm super picky about material, but this is super soft — not quite modal, but close. I dig it." —Resa

    Price: $13.99+ (available in sizes XS-3X and in two colors)

    4. A bright, flowery number that's honestly one of the most perfect, appropriate-for-all-occasions, great-for-all-body-types, fit-and-flare dresses I've ever seen. No wonder it has over 2,500 positive reviews!,

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

    Promising review: "This dress had me at pockets! What a great dress, especially for work! It has pockets on both sides, a work-appropriate hemline, and the material is the kind where you can sit for hours, but it'll never show a wrinkle! I'm 5'6" and 150 lbs and the medium fits great. With wedges, it's the perfect outfit for work: comfy and practical yet classy." —AprilAries

    Price: $15.99+ (available in sizes S-3X and in 36 prints)

    5. A polka dot T-shirt dress with pockets that you may never want to take off, especially since it'll even be cute with tights and booties come winter. You live in this dress now.,

    Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE this dress. I ordered the large because I’m large in the breast area and I was worried it would be too tight, but I honestly could have gotten away with the medium, so I would say this dress is pretty true to size. The overall dress is great quality, soft, and comfortable, the pockets aren't skimpy or small, and the dress isn't see-through. I want one in every color." —Tasia B

    Price: $19.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in three colors)

    6. A faux-wrap dress that's really cute for everything from work to a wedding.,

    Promising review: "I bought this dress for a professional conference in a few weeks. The dress looks perfect. It goes to my knees and the chest area is very modest and appropriate for my conference, but if I throw on a statement necklace it could just as easily be something I wear to a musical or nice event. The fabric doesn’t stick to anything, and I’m pleasantly surprised at how thick the material is. I don't need a slip or undershirt." —Skye C.

    Price: $16.99+ (available in sizes 14W-26W and in 14 colors and prints)

    7. A pretty patterned sheath you'll actually look forward to wearing this week. And if someone mistakes you for the boss? I wouldn't be surprised.,

    You are a boss, after all.

    Promising review: "I love this dress! I got compliments on it all day. My students could've sworn it was a $50 dress, and it's comfy to boot! I'm 5'5" and 140 lbs and I got the medium. I fits great and I even have a little extra room. It also goes past my knee, so it's a great length. I'm in love!" —Luke Brenneman

    Price: $13.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in nine styles)

    8. A gorgeous lace cocktail number, which may inspire you to throw a party just so you can wear it. Seriously, I wouldn't blame you.,

    Check out BuzzFeed's full write-up on this dress, which has over 2,000 positive reviews!

    Promising review: "This dress is killer. The fabric is high quality and the lace isn't delicate enough to rip. I can't tell you how amazing I felt in this. It's so beautiful. Underneath the lace, there's a layer of fabric to shield you from any see-through mishaps. There are also rubber straps in the shoulder area so that the dress doesn't slip off, which is so ingenious! I wore it for over 10 hours at a wedding and I had no problems. I just love this dress to death! Buy it!" —Jennifer

    Price: $19.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in six colors)

    9. A sultry, strappy party dress over 1,500 reviewers have fallen head over heels for. Probably because everyone else is as sick of impractical, uncomfy special occasion outfits as you are.,

    Promising review: "I purchased this dress for a wedding. I was a little nervous about the low back; I can’t/won’t go without a bra and pasties don’t work for me. I was happy to see that the straps were adjustable, so my strapless bra worked perfectly with it. I got tons of compliments all night, and who doesn’t love a dress with pockets? The fabric is stretchy so you have a little wiggle room on the size. I’m 5’4 and 200 lbs, and I typically wear a size L in tops and 16 in bottoms. I ordered a size L and was happy with the fit." —Mandee

    Price: $19.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 32 colors and prints)

    10. A swingy vintage-inspired dress your inner Lucille Ball is begging you to own.,

    Over 2,800 people have given this baby positive reviews, and some say they especially like to rock it with a petticoat underneath for extra poof. Check out BuzzFeed's full write-up on this dress.

    Promising review: "This dress exceeded my expectations! It's so pretty. The belt is removable, so it can be worn however you want — tied in the front, back, or even the side. The top fits so nicely and I'm very happy!" —Harmony A.

    Price: $18.69+ (available in sizes XS-3X and in 45 colors and prints)

    11. An embroidered velvet tunic just begging to be paired with your favorite boots. Honestly, you might even get excited for the weather to get colder so you can wear this.


    Promising review: "Super comfy. It's very good quality, which surprised me. It's one of the hidden gems of Amazon. I ordered the biggest size they had as I thought it might run small, but I definitely could've gotten away with my true size. Regardless, it's roomy and very warm." —Brooke B

    Price: $23.98+ (available in sizes S-4X and in six colors)

    12. A twirl-worthy colorblocked dress I 10/10 recommend pairing with cute shoes and statement jewelry.,

    Promising review: ""This dress fits like a glove! I love the way it flows and feels so soft. This hugs my curves perfectly and I feel very comfortable in it. I can't wait to wear this out." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $11.99+ (available in sizes S-3X and in 10 colors)

    13. A drop-dead gorgeous pleated off-the-shoulder dress that'll make you feel so glam, you'll cry tiers of joy.


    Promising review: "OMG! Awesome!!!!! I'm 5’4” and 145 lbs. I bought a medium and it drapes beautifully. I plan to wear it on my shoulders, and the elastic seems strong enough to hold. I bought the white and it’s light and airy — not see though at all. I'm so thrilled. I will buy it in black ASAP!" —LB

    Price: $23.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in eight colors)

    14. An amazingly affordable tunic dress with gorgeous embellished sleeves that are ~sheerly~ delightful.,

    Promising review: "This was in a BuzzFeed article and I thought I’d give it try. OMG, I’m so glad I did! I wear a pant size 10 and the medium fits perfectly. I got the blue and it’s definitely more of a navy. It’s beautiful." —Ray

    Price: $15.98+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 13 designs)

    15. A breezy ruffled tunic dress so effortlessly chic and affordable, I bet you think it couldn't get any better. But guys, it also has POCKETS., Amazon

    One of my coworkers has this in red and I can confirm that it looks just as Insta-worthy IRL!

    Promising review: "So. Dang. Cute!!! I love this loose, flowy dress for any occasion. It fits true to size and the color is great! If you’re looking for a form-fitting dress, this is NOT it. It’s flowy and causal while still flattering!" —Robin R

    Price: $21.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in five colors)

    16. A knockout pencil dress that slays for work or a party and could easily pass for quadruple the price.,

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

    Promising review: "You will turn heads in this dress! I wore this to my dance studio's ballet and received so many compliments. People were still talking about it days later. This dress fit perfectly, like a glove! I am 5'5" and 115 lbs and I bought a small. It cups my curves and the yellow color is so vibrant! It stands out in a great way. It's perfect for special occasions, weddings, cocktail parties or even work. It's my new favorite dress!" —Amazon Customer

    Price: $29.99 (available in sizes S-3X and in 18 colors)

    17. A possibly perfect strappy midi with pockets that you should probably buy in every print — it's ready to become your sunny day uniform., Amazon

    It's got over 1,000 positive reviews! Check out BuzzFeed's full write-up on this beauty.

    Promising review: "If you've heard good things about this dress, they're true! I'm one of those people who never writes reviews. I found this dress through a BuzzFeed article and couldn't resist the white sunflower one. The material is stretchy and just fits your body so well. I didn't have any problems with it being see-through while I was wearing light grey underwear. The length is cute, it hugs you in the right spots, and the buttons are fake so they stay uniform all the way down. It's stretchy across the back of the bodice, so bigger-chested people would love this. Me and my mom have completely different body types and the large fits us both amazingly! I'm definitely going to try to order as many prints as I can!" —Courtney Clark

    Price: $21.99 (available in 33 colors and prints)

    18. A flirty tie-front dress that might break hearts, but will absolutely knot break the bank.


    It has a smocked, stretchy back and the straps are adjustable!

    Promising review: "I ordered this dress in black. It’s for a date night with the hubs. It’s perfect! It actually couldn’t be any better and it fits like a glove. I’m 5’2”, 165 lbs, and a C cup. I got a size large. The tie in the front is great because you can adjust it to your fit. I was able to tie it tightly enough to give me the support I needed to feel totally comfortable without a bra. I’m short, so the skirt was more of a tea length on me, but I liked it. The buttons are real buttons and you can show a little more leg on the bottom if you want. The material feels slightly thick and of good quality. I'm so glad I bought this!" —Mike Haskell

    Price: $13.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in eight colors)

    19. A richly hued fit-and-flare dress with a scalloped hem you won't have to shell out a lot of dough for.,

    Geddit, because scallops have shells?! Is this a good joke, or am I just being shellfish? Is hoping you laughed at that mollusking too much??

    Promising review: "I purchased this dress for a retirement celebration for my aunt and uncle. My entire extended family will be at this event and I wanted a dress that would look classy. I just tried it on and could not be more pleased. As a teacher, I know this dress will be perfect for meetings and even picture day! The fabric and fit are better than expected! This purchase was definitely a win!" —Kristen

    Price: $17.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in six colors).

    20. A faux-wrap wonder that historians have concluded to be the most perfect work dress to exist in recorded memory., Amazon

    Several reviewers also love it as an adorable travel dress that won't wrinkle in your suitcase!

    Promising review: "This. Dress. Oh boy, where do I start? Well, first off, I'm 5'7" and 165 lbs and I bought a medium. And I look fabulous! This dress is gorgeous. It flares right at the hips. The three-quarter sleeves are also a good touch. It looks very versatile, for everything from church to going on a date to business casual, depending on the footwear. I absolutely love this dress. The material is also cool, which is going to be great for spring and summer!" —Jen

    Price: $20+ (available in sizes XS-XL and in 45 colors and prints)

    21. A versatile fit-and-flare dress with dramatic ruffled shoulders that works (and wows) everywhere from the office to a cocktail hour and is so great, you may want it in every color.,

    Promising review: "Omg! This is like the best dress I've ever purchased. The style, the material, the design, and the way it hugs my figure are to die for. I cannot believe how cheap this dress was. I purchased the teal and the dark pink and then ordered the royal blue. This is now my favorite dress. I can't wait until my hubby sees me in it. We might never make it to dinner. Lol 😆." —Brooke S

    Price: $19.99+ (available in sizes XS-XL and in 14 colors and prints)

    22. A seductive velvet faux-wrap number you should buy ~now~ to get you hype for fall and winter parties ~later~.,

    Promising review: "There are few words to describe this dress. It's absolutely gorgeous! The inside is silky, so it's super comfortable, and it comes to a good length. I'd recommend this dress to everyone." —Amanda Barnes

    Price: $19.99+ (available in sizes 14W-22W and in seven colors)

    23. A lightweight mini dress with a comfy elastic waist to make every day feel like a tropical vacay, even as the leaves start to turn brown.,

    Promising review: "Love the pattern and the fit! The comfortable elastic high waist fits perfectly, the flutter sleeves very flattering, and it's a perfect above-the-knee length. The fabric is somewhat sheer, so it's cool, light, and airy even though it has a dark background. I like this dress best of all the dresses I've bought on Amazon!" —DeeJay

    Price: $9.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 38 colors and prints)

    24. A '20s-inspired beaded cocktail dress that'll have you looking and feeling greater than Gatsby.,

    Promising review: "I cannot write enough praise about this dress! I ordered it on Thursday for a '20s-themed wedding I had on Sunday and was STRESSED the whole time about it fitting because I had no backup plan! It arrived in time and FIT PERFECTLY! It's absolutely gorgeous. The beading and detail truly exceeded my expectations for the price. I got so many compliments all night. Highly recommend!!!" —Alexandria Segura

    Price: $33.99+ (available in sizes XS-XL and in eight colors)
