    Hello and welcome! Before we continue, I have a very urgent question for you: How many articles of clothing is reasonable for one to add to their closet in one sitting?

    Paramount Pictures

    Ok great! Now that we've cleared that up, I can show you this darling $18 tie-dye maxi dress that my (and now your) closet is just ~dyeing~ to have. / shanna l. /

    It comes in 19 style and print combinations, including some with pockets (!!!) and long sleeves. This is good (or bad, if you're a bank account) news because it means you can stock up on a few of them and basically have a week's worth of outfits to wear!

    And because it's a dress, you can easily throw it on, head out the door, and feel trendy AF. We love a minimal-effort look!

    I will show you some amazing customer pics in just a moment, but let me quickly add that this maxi dress has over 1,600 reviews and a four-star rating. Translation: This is a solid piece of clothing!

    "I am shocked! I never get this lucky when online shopping. I’m 5’3" and 150 pounds (34-inch bust, 33-inch waist, 38-inch hips). I usually wear a medium, but after reading reviews I decided to size down. This style dress tends to look like a tent on my short frame, so I wanted it to be a little more formfitting without being too tight. It’s perfect! The material is stretchy and there is still a ton of give. It’s also a tad long, but will be great in heels. If you want it baggy, go down one size. If you want more form fitted, go down two sizes. SO COMFORTABLE! You won’t regret it." β€”Amy

    Ok, let's see this thing in action. Check out these reviewers, who paired the dress with a jacket, meaning it's a great outfit for both summer *and* fall!

    Just peep that side-split detailing!

    "This dress is super cute and comfortable β€” just as pictured! I read numerous reviews before I ordered and I agree that sizing down is a good idea. I would normally wear a medium and the small fit perfectly. Love the pockets! I am 5'3" and it's perfect with heels." β€”JessieGirl7

    It also looks adorable tied up at the bottom!

    Yet another great perk of this dress, especially if it's a little long on you.

    And with simple sandals.

    "I purchased this last minute for a weekend road trip. I loved the fit, and I got lots of compliments! I'm 5'5" and wear a size 16, and I ordered an XL." β€”Amazon Customer

    Even pregnant moms love this thing (and rightfully so β€” they look uh-mazing!).

    "Omg, this dress is gorgeous. I got the brown tie-dye one in a size medium but could do a small, too. I'm seven months pregnant, 5'9" and upper 150 pounds pregnancy weight for reference (usually a size 6-8, 140-145 pounds when I am not pregnant). I'm going to buy two more right now. Perfection." β€”Meg April

    It's just an all-around whimsical-yet-comfortable dress (aka the best kind!). The only thing to keep in mind when ordering is sizing: Many reviewers recommend going down a size.

    Ethel James / Debi /

    "I love this dress! I usually order dresses in XL but I ordered a large in this one since it's very flowy. I pair it with a waist belt but would also wear it without one because of the style of the dress. It's so soft and the length is great." β€”Emily Debi

    "I love this dress! Thank goodness I read the reviews about sizing. I am 5'9 and wear a 16-18. I always buy a tall-XL and prefer XXL. I like my clothes loose. I ordered a large. I love the fit and flow of this dress. I carry my weight in my hips, so I think I will probably stitch up the pockets and snip them off. The material is very stretchy and lightweight, but not see-through. I love that this material doesn't wrinkle β€” it's perfect for packing!" β€”Gretchen

    You when you put on your new dress and know you're rockin' it.
