    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.

    Promising review: "This became one of my favorite crop tops! It's a super comfy material β€” it's soft in a way that I didn't expect at all! Top quality! The color matched the description precisely, which I loved because mint green is super cute! I like to wear it with shorts but can totally wear it with skirts and pants too! It fits well and it's comfy, and it came without any wrinkles, ready to wear. Great price for the quality!" β€”Jess Palacios

    Get them from Amazon for $9.90 (available in 17 styles).

    9. A ruffled dress so easy and breezy, you'll be crying tiers of joy.


    Promising review: "This dress is so flattering and comfortable. I just ordered another. I'm a petite person, but I definitely recommend sizing up. The fabric is lightweight and very comfy for summer. It's stylish but still covered-up enough that I can move easily and not worry about flashing anyone. And let's not forget that it meets the highest bar for a dress by not only having pockets, but ones big enough to hold a phone. Score." β€”Nikki V

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 11 colors and prints).

    10. Raffia-embellished resin hoops that cor-all your friends will compliment.


    Get them from Francesca's for $14.98 (originally $20).

    11. A cheerful rainbow cardigan to help you show of your (*extremely Cyndi Lauper voice*) β™« trueeee colors β™«.


    Promising review: "I loved this sweater from the moment I put it on. It's much comfier than expected, and as a plus-size person, I appreciate that the XL gave me that huggable, cozy, loose fit I wanted in a sweater of this style. It's flattering enough to dress up with some fun accessories over a dress, but also snuggly enough to lounge around on lazy days with it over pajamas. The colors are vibrant and gorgeous, and I'm planning on ordering other colors as well. For the price, the quality is good. I'm pretty picky about acrylic fabrics and breathability, but this is a perfect weight, warm without being oppressive, and not itchy at all. This curvy, queer, nonbinary person is absolutely blown away by the deliciously roomy fit, the pride-tastic colors, pockets, and flattering drape. It definitely sparks joy whenever I put it on (in fact, I'm wearing it now!)." β€”nessiemonster

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in nine colors).

    12. A pale denim jumpsuit that'd look amazing paired with statement heels β€” if you're chambray-ve enough.


    It'd also be awesome just dressed down with sandals!

    Get it from Asos for $56 (available in sizes 0-14).

    13. A chic and all-purpose bow blouse you can dress down with jeans or up for work or a party with the right skirt or pants., Amazon

    Promising review: "This is my first time buying clothes from Amazon and I'm beyond pleased. I was always worried that I'd get something that looked nothing like the product online, but this blouse exceeds my expectations. I got it in white and sky blue and it fits well. The material doesn't look or feel cheap, the colors are vibrant, and it's loose in a good way (flowy). 10/10 would recommend!" β€”sabrina

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 29 colors and prints, including some available in a short-sleeve version).

    Okay sorry I'll stop rhyming now. Anywho, this cutie is actually from one of Amazon's in-house fashion brands!

    Promising review: "I love this bralette! I wear it under tank tops or low-cut shirts to add more color or coverage. It has adjustable straps so I can wear it as high or low as I want. I have this in turquoise and the melon color, and both are beautiful and bright. For reference I'm 5'5", 175 pounds, and wear a size 36D. I bought an XL." β€”Amazon Customer

    19. A ruffled off-the-shoulder mini dress to have you looking hotter than the summer weather.


    Promising review: "I ordered my regular dress size and it fit perfectly. The dress looks more expensive than it is. It has a lining underneath so it's not see-through, and the material is lightweight, so it will keep you cool and dry. I wore it recently in 90 degree weather and felt comfortable. I received many compliments as well." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Anthropologie for $168 (available in sizes 1X-3X).

    Reviewers recommend sizing up!

    Promising review: "This dress is super cute and I super love it! I ordered the pink. The color is just lovely and matches what's shown in the picture. The dress is well-constructed. I was a little worried about how comfortable it would be, but the fabric turned out to be very lightweight and flowy, and it stretches. It’s not itchy or stiff or stifling at all. Overall, I am VERY pleased with my purchase! I got SO many compliments on this dress, even from my husband!" β€”Kristaleighbird

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in seven colors).
