    1. 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

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

    2. A belted sleeveless shirtdress that'll look equally awesome with bare legs and flats now as it will with a cardi, tights, and boots later.


    Promising review: "I NEVER have time to write reviews, but this dress, out of the hundreds of clothing orders I've placed on Amazon, truly deserves the time to review! This dress is AMAZING! It's not only beautiful, but it makes you FEEL absolutely gorgeous in it! It's casual enough for day and dressy enough to just switch out boots for heels for a Saturday night date. It's so comfortable and playful and I got TONS of compliments on it! You'll feel like a million bucks in this dress, and everyone will tell you that you look like a million more!" —DaisyLove

    4. A super comfy long-sleeved T-shirt dress with POCKETS and a fun boho print that might force your favorite tee into early retirement.


    Promising review: "Fantastic travel dress! Great print, great pockets, great price. This print is super cute and the pockets are great — the fabric is heavier than expected but hangs really well as a result, and I just put a spandex shorts under it and used it to travel all over Asia. The fabric washed great in the sink without fading or piling, but took a day to dry. I washed it several times and hung it dry and it looked great for my whole trip. It was comfortable, stretchy and durable enough to go from climbing temples and traversing rope bridges to a nice hotel bar for drink later in the day." —KMPinPDX

It has pockets on both sides (finally!), a work-appropriate hemline, and the material is the kind where you can sit for hours and it'll never show a wrinkle!

    Promising review: "This is a very beautiful, fashion-forward dress. It looks just like the picture. I wore it to a wedding and received many compliments.

    Promising review: "This dress is a fantastic purchase. It's well-made and very reasonably priced. I bought it for a luncheon I was attending where the dress code was 'business attire.' I wanted something professional but beautiful, and this dress was a perfect fit. I received several compliments, but the irrefutable stamp of approval was when I met Piper Kerman, author of Orange is the New Black, and the first thing she said to me was a genuine exclamation of 'wow, that's a gorgeous dress!' Good enough for me!" —Lady AMX

    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
