    You can get a belt like the one in the picture right here.

    Promising review: "This dress is gorgeous! I have received tons of compliments from random strangers, and I've only worn it about three times. It's ridiculously comfortable and the pockets are excellent. I mean, pockets in a dress are one of the greatest things ever, but I feel like most of the time I can't actually use them. It creates an unsightly bulge. That is not the case with this dress. Because it's so open and flowy, I can stash a chapstick or a pen in the pockets without it showing at all. The color is also true to the Amazon photo, though of course, depending on lighting, sometimes it looks more golden yellow and other times more orange. Either way, it's going to be perfect for fall." β€”Jessica

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes XS–L and four colors).

    11. A chiffon maxi accented with a ruffle hem so you can strut, strut, twirl, and then sashay away all throughout the office. And on the street. And at parties. And really everywhere.

    Promising review: "I usually wear a size 16 and the XXL fit perfectly. This dress is sewn from a soft, medium-weight knit with stretch, and the dress is tailored to fit the shape of your body (but not like a glove, so not tight).

    Promising review: "Material is stretchy, and thick! It's perfect if you're like me who gets cold all the time, because you don't need to bring a sweater with you.

    Promising review: "I work in an office in a major metropolitan area. This dress is perfect for work or casual outings. You can dress it up or down.

    25. A pleated lantern-sleeve option your closet is practically pleading with you to buy.


    Promising review: "This red dress is thick yet has a beautiful drape to it. The sleeves are lantern-shaped and have a cute ruffle detail on the edge. The pintucks in the front and back are placed in the perfect spot to accentuate the waist. The dress fits like a glove. It is a bit longer on me than the model (I am 5'2" for reference).
