    1. A pretty polka dot number with roomy pockets that's practically perfect — the only way it could get better is if you added ankle booties.,

    Promising review: "This dress is so pretty!! I was hesitant because it seemed like it might be super cheap-looking, but it's a much higher quality than I expected. I'm 5'4" and about 150 lbs, and I usually wear a size 10 and bra size 34C. I ordered a large. It fits like a dream and I feel so pretty in it! It has pockets and it drapes so nicely. You will not be disappointed." —Nicole

    2. A tie-waist sweater dress you should ~knot~ hesitate to rock with your fave tall boots.,

    Promising review: "I bought this for a trip to Charlotte, NC knowing that I wanted to dress up but not be freezing. It definitely served its purpose. It’s very warm, cute and comfortable. I wore this with black tights and boots and got many compliments. I love that it ties at your hips, as it compliments your figure. It's very easy to dress up or dress down." —Madi

    3. A chic, cutout-detailed shift dress that's breezy and breathable but can still work in fall and winter with the right footwear. Hello, something you can wear under a coat without sweating to death on your commute!

    Promising review: "I'm 5'3", weigh 125 lbs, and I have a small chest and round hips. This tunic in a size small fit me perfectly on top, but was way too loose on the bottom. I tried it with a black belt, and it looked gorgeous! I'm going to wear it with black leggings and I know it'll be a terrific outfit. I love that the style is something that you don't see everywhere — it really stands out and is unique. I'm totally happy with my purchase!" —KofuJill

    @fitmommy_inheels / Via,

    Boots, sneakers, sandals, tights, bare legs — this dress can do it all tbh.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love it. It is so cute and will be great in the fall with some boots. The material is nice as well, not thin or see-through. This is definitely a great buy!" —MarylandOhana

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in eight colors).

    10. A versatile long-sleeved T-shirt dress that seems basic, but is there anything basic about over 4,700 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

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes XS-3X and in 38 colors and prints).

    Promising review: "This dress fits so well and is my new go-to. I have curves and it skims them nicely while accentuating my waist. The material is lightweight, breathable, and a little sheer but you can't see through it when it's on. I got four or five compliments the very first day I wore it! It's cool enough for the summer, but I think it would also look great in the fall paired with boots." —Stephannie

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 37 prints).

    Forever 21

    Get it from Forever 21 for $29.99 (available in sizes S-L).

    14. A sultry slipdress you could always go the obvious way and pair with heels or sandals, but I'd drool over it styled with a jean or pleather jacket and combat boots.


    Get it from Amazon for $10+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 11 colors and prints).

    15. A floral midi T-shirt dress with a sultry slit for showing off your ~stems~.


    Get it from Asos for $45 (available in sizes 0-14).

    16. A perfectly fitted Sam Edelman one-shoulder dress for those of you who want to make summer sihelloutes last as long as possible. Hey, I wore this with boots last winter, so you sure as heck can too!

    Amazon, Yi Yang/BuzzFeed

    Sam Edelman is known for the fabulous quality of his shoes, but apparently his clothes are just as great. I always know that ordering somewhat fitted/not-stretchy dresses, especially ones with funky necklines, is a big risk. I was FLOORED when this fit like a damn glove. I've never been able to wear a one-shoulder dress casually before. While it's great to feel the summer breeze on my shoulders in this baby, I also felt confident as heck with it popped over a tee and paired with tights and combat boots in the winter. It was super true to size for me and I assume it would be for other small-chested folks, but if you're busty you might want to size up!

    Get it from Amazon for $138 (available in sizes 2-14).

    17. A classic plaid shirtdress that's an instant cute work outfit, so you can look put together even on those days when the alarm goes off at 10 but work started at 8 (hey, no one told life was gonna be this way).


    Get it from ModCloth for $89 (available in sizes XXS-4X).

    18. An amazingly affordable tunic dress with gorgeous embellished sleeves that'd be ~sheer~ perfection with your fave ankle booties.,

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 13 designs).

    19. An equine-print sweater dress your friends will compliment so much, they'll start to go ~horse~.


    ESPECIALLY if you rock it with sheer black tights and boots on your, feet.

    Get it from Asos for $72 (available in sizes 0-14).

    20. A lace-detailed plaid slipdress that's like your '90s grunge fever dream come true.

    Urban Outfitters

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $69 (available in sizes XS-XL).

    21. A heart-print fit-and-flare you could keep sweet with ballet flats, sure, but the contrast of the cutesy vibe with lug-sole booties? *Chef's kiss*.

    Forever 21

    Get it from Forever 21 for $12.99 (available in sizes 0X-2X).
