    1. A long-sleeved velvet beauty sure to have you feeling like a princess — correction — a queen.,

    Promising review: "I wore this beautiful royal blue velvet dress for New Year's Eve and got so many compliments from complete strangers! I had one woman say to me, 'Your dress is so beautiful, I can't stop staring at it.' Another young man broke away from his group to tell me, 'beautiful dress.' The arms were a little tight, but otherwise it fit nicely. The material is heavy, like you'd expect velvet to be. It came to my ankles and I'm 5'6", so it might be long on shorter people. The material is stretchy, so I didn't have any trouble in the bust where I usually have difficulty with dresses. I was very comfortable all night. I tend to get warm, so I was worried about the long sleeves, but I never felt overheated wearing this. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a knockout dress that's comfortable and priced right!" —Liz M.

    Price: $40.98+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in six colors)

    2. A knockout embellished mini so you can wear your style on your sleeve.,

    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: $15.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 13 designs)

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

    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: $34.79+ (available in sizes XS-XL and in 33 colors and prints)

    4. A strappy party dress over 1,000 reviewers love for helping them look classy even if they're ~strapped~ for cash.,

    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 large in tops and 16 in bottoms. I ordered a size large and was happy with the fit." —Mandee

    Price: $33.92 (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 34 colors and prints)

    5. An elegantly embroidered stunner you're sure to get sew many compliments on.


    Promising review: "This dress looks like it came from a high-end boutique. The fabric, stitching, and cut are all way above this dress's price point. For reference, I'm 5'6" and 127 lbs and curvy with a 35 1/2" bust measurement. The medium fits perfectly. The bust measurement is the most critical thing to get right when deciding which size to purchase. The dress is forgiving at the waist and hip. If you have a 36" bust measurement, the size 6 will be too snug. The way the dress hangs and the quality of the workmanship and fabric truly make you look like you spent several hundred dollars on it." —MoxieLoxie

    Price: $59.98 (available in sizes S-XXL)

    6. A swingy laser cut fit-and-flare number for anyone who believes in twirl power.,

    Promising review: "I fell in love with this dress the moment I put it on. The material is lightweight and the stitching and pattern are perfect. I'm 5'2" and 150 lbs and a a size 36DD, and I purchased a large. It's not tight in the bust or arms." —Kandy & Josh Turner

    Price: $28.99 (available in sizes XS-XL and in six colors)

    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: $12.23+ (available in sizes XS-5X and in six styles)

    8. A lace fit-and-flare that could easily pass as something from a hip designer label.,

    Promising review: "It's a gorgeous dress!!!!! I wore it for New Years. After reading reviews, I decided medium was my size and it is. I'm 5'6", a size 36C, 164 lbs, and an 8/10. I wore a bra but no Spanx — didn't need them. The quality is great! There's a stretchy, knit band sewn in the back that acts like a belt for more of a form-fitting fit. It's really comfortable and the zipper is substantial. I might buy it in navy too." —Madison Ave Kids

    Price: $29.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in four colors)

    9. A chic deconstructed shirt dress here to prove pinstripes aren't just for work, but also for play.,

    Promising review: "Super cute! I love the buttons on the sleeve and the down the side of the dress. You can wear it with heels, booties, or flats. It's a really light fabric, but not see-through. It has two belt loops and a matching belt. It's perfect for a date or just a casual day out. I love it!" —chelsea

    Price: $25.99 (available in sizes 4/6-12)

    10. A ruffle sleeved-skater that'd be fab on its own but extra glamorous paired with a statement necklace.,

    Promising review: "I ordered this dress to wear to a dance party. It was perfect! It was comfortable and easy to move in throughout the night. I got an XL, which I could just slip over my head to put on, even though it has a zipper. For reference, I'm 5’3", 190 lbs, a cup size 38/40 DD, and I typically wear a size 14/L (sometimes XL depending on fit). I'll be ordering another one in a different color. I highly recommend this dress!" —Sherlethia

    Price: $19.99+ (available in sizes XS-XL and in 13 colors and prints)

    11. A high fashion number with cool bell sleeves more dramatic than an episode of Degrassi.,

    Promising review: "I wore this dress to a wedding. I received so many compliments. I felt good in it, too. Everyone asked where a got the dress. The material is stretchy, so the XL was good for me. I'll be buying another one in a different color." —Kenyetta

I think this would flatter any figure. It is well-made and looks great. Super price — you can't go wrong ordering this one!" —Coco L

    Price: $41.47 (available in sizes XS-XL and in 16 colors and prints)

    15. A stellar sequined gown to have you shining bright like a diamond (even if the baubles you pair it with are just costume jewels).,

    Promising review: "When I first saw this dress I couldn't believe it was so inexpensive. I almost thought it was too good to be true. I ordered the rose gold and it blew me away. This dress easily looks about $200-$300 with the beautiful sequins and overall style. I'm also a fairly curvy woman and it fit amazingly." —bellaxo

I untied them to wear the neck a bit open and show the crisis-cross pattern of the ties, which adds even more detail. It glides smoothly over my hips and chest. It has a nice weight and looks like a rather expensive dress, much more than the 20 or so dollars I spent. Beautiful, precious, comfortable dress!" —Shiloh

I really love how the dress shows off my shoulders." —pugsnbourbon

    Promising review: "This sweet dress is totally on-trend, with the ruffles, drape, and floral motif. Very pretty! Love the fabric. The shoulders and sleeves are sheer; the bodice is lined. The length is on the short side, and it works great with opaque tights and booties. It can even work over leggings, or bare-legged with some strappy heels." —Oliver DeMille, TJEd
