The material is a decent weight and the cut outs at the bottom of the dress are done nicely. I'm 5'5" and the dress hits just above my knees, which is a perfect length. I don't like my clothes tight, so purchased a 3X. It's loose and flowy and hangs just right. Overall, I'm very happy with the dress.

    I love a matching set because it takes most of the work out of putting an outfit together. And this one is such a great deal! I love how comfy and easy it is to wear. I was concerned about it being see-through, but it wasn't! It has a stretchy waist and a cute tie detail in the front of the skirt. For spring days, I just throw a denim jacket over it. And, of course, I plan to wear it all summer as well. I would 100% buy more colors in this — and there are so many to choose from!

    Promising review: "Absolutely LOVE this! I want to order a few more in different colors! It’s stylish, dress it up or wear it casual! I got lots of compliments. Very comfortable and soft. Moves nicely with the body! Very cool-looking top!" —Jules

    14. A twisted peplum top that doubles as a cute top for happy hour and a cute top for business meetings.,

    Promising review: "To be honest I didn't have very high hopes for a shirt this inexpensive. But at that price point I also figured that I didn't have much to lose. I'm busty and have tattoos on my shoulders so finding cute comfortable clothing that's appropriate for work and doesn't cost a fortune can be a challenge. This shirt looks exactly like an Elloquii one I've been eyeing for a while but at a fraction of the price. I'll probably get the other colors as well!" —Arden Bee

The color is beautiful too! Literally every time I wear this dress, I get compliments! It's a little long on me (I'm 5'2", and it hits a little lower than mid-calf), but I just pair it with pointy pumps, and it's fine.

    Kayla Boyd / BuzzFeed, Nordstrom

    This is such a glamorous statement piece! I love it so much. It's loose and flowy and the perfect way to take a simple outfit to Instagram-worthy. I've worn it around the house as a fancy robe, but I also can't wait to dress it up for the outside world. It would even make a pretty swimsuit cover.
