Promising review: "I'm in love with everything about this dress! It's flattering, comfortable, and made from quality material. I love that I can dress it up with jewelry and shoes for a wedding or wear it as is/tone it down for business meetings and conferences. I would buy this again if I hadn't already!" — nomadbride
Price: $33.99 (available in sizes S-2XL and in eight colors)
polka dot dress with POCKETS that are actually big enough to fit your phone or other essentials you want to keep close when running between conference rooms.
Promising review: "This is my favorite dress of all time. I have it in navy and red! I am 5'3" and 123 lbs and I ordered the small. It's the perfect length to wear out, but I also wear it to work and it's work-appropriate. I've received more compliments on this dress than any other I own! It's so comfortable and I have washed both of them several times and they still look brand new. Great quality. I cannot say enough good things about this dress. You will NOT be disappointed!!!" — Lindsay Thornburg
Price: $19.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in seven colors)
fit-and-flare here to spare you the trouble of having to pull on both a top and a skirt in the morning.
Promising review: "This dress is prefect for work, casual events, etc. I absolutely loved it and it’s really comfy. The material is soft and not too heavy, but heavy enough. I reside in AZ and it’s prefect for the summer! A lot of people confused it for a skirt, so I think of it as two pieces in one. I wear a size medium in women’s shirts and blouses, so I ordered a medium, which fit perfectly everywhere, so I would say it’s true to size. Overall, very awesome dress that can be worn at multiple outings and events! I will be ordering another one!" — robert griffiths
Price: $27.90 (available in sizes S-XL and in 14 colors and prints)
ruffled number that can easily take you from a very important meeting to a very fun happy hour.
Promising review: "Usually clothes are too large in the shoulder/bust area in order to accommodate my waist and hips, but this dress was a dream. It's comfortable and sassy, and I'm contemplating getting another in a different color. I received several compliments." — Dawn

fit-and-flare with ruffled sleeves to bring drama of the sartorial variety, not the nasty kind caused by someone from accounting gossiping in the break room.
Promising review: "This dress is PERFECT! Need a date night dress? This is it. Need a fun day dress? This is perfect. It even works for work! The length goes down to my knees. It's perfectly flowy. The material isn't too heavy, and it definitely covers you. It's pretty good quality." — Ashlyn Meadows

Promising review: "It's so classy and sleek and perfect. I feel like a million bucks every time I put it on. I typically wear it to the office with a good pair of heels and a pretty necklace. It's form-fitting, so it isn't frumpy, but it has a low hemline and a high neckline that make it perfect for work or for classy nights out. I HIGHLY recommend this dress." — Chloe
Price: $25.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in seven colors and prints)
Promising review: "I love this dress! It's got a great fit and design. The belt allows you to cinch it to your body's specifications. I wore it to my birthday dinner and also to work. I got SO many compliments each time. Dress it up or make it more business-like, but BUY IT!" — BAM
Price: $29.99 (available in sizes S-3XL and in seven colors and prints)

BuzzFeed's full write-up on this dress. 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

Promising review: "This is the perfect dress to wear for the first day of your period, when you are so bloated you just wanna wear sweatpants, but you still have to go to work. I love this dress and am getting one in every color. It's fitted at the top, so you could still wear a belt with it to cinch it in a little bit, but it's also very loose in the belly. I love it!" — Brittany Andreasen

I washed it on cold and hung it to dry and it seems to have survived. I'm going to buy another in a different color." — Emily G.
Price: $26.99+ (available in sizes 4-12 and in 19 colors and prints)

Promising review: "I got so many compliments at work when I wore this dress. I had to wear some bike shorts underneath so that you couldn’t see my bottom through the lacy part. Overall though, I love my dress!" — Marlene

sweet little shift that does all the work of layering for you, but is happy to let you take all the credit.

high-neck floral pencil dress basically guaranteed to have you taking selfies in the bathroom mirror...just don't let it make you late to your next meeting!
Promising review: "Awesome dress! I'm pleasantly surprised! The material is high-quality and not at all see-through. It's appropriate for work, true to size, and excellent quality. There are reasons this dress is rated so highly." — WhyisthisNecessary
Price: $23.99+ (available in sizes S-2XL and in 10 colors and prints)
Promising review: "This dress is so cute! I received many compliments everywhere I went while wearing it. The length was perfect — just past the knee. It washed well and the material lies nicely. It didn't winkle, even after sitting in the car for a couple hours, so it's great for work! The lines do not match up 100% at the seams, so if that bothers you, you may not want this dress. I solved that issue by adding a belt. Very happy with my purchase! I am a medium/size 6 and the medium fit perfectly." — A
Price: $29.99+ (available in sizes XS-XL and in 10 colors and prints)

A 3/4 sleeve
bodycon number that may not be what your boss meant when they said you needed to earn your stripes, but is darn impressive nonetheless.
Promising review: "This dress is awesome. I work in a professional environment and received compliments all day. I'm 5'4", 125lbs, and a 32A, and the medium fit great. I didn't want it to be too tight since I'm wearing it to work. It feels kind of like a soft T-shirt, and I liked that the arms weren't too tight. The blue is a very true blue. I wore with bright red/coral pumps and felt very colorful! :)" — Demyan

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.

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

A pretty and timeless
wrap dress that's equally perfect for work or a night out and that everyone will think you paid at least twice as much for.
