    1. A cutie crop top to style up any pair of jeans because summer is near and we must prepare our wardrobe for such a chic season!!


    Promising review: "The top is very cute but it does run large. I went with what the previous reviews said and ordered a size down and it still fits a little loose but is still very cute. I’m a true size medium and ordered the small. 34D, 144 lbs., 5’7, and 28-inch waist for reference." —Trixi

    2. A loose-fitting and super-soft maxi tee so you can strut your stuff down the street while staying incredibly cozy...and those are two things that need to go together more often.


    Promising review: "I was pleasantly surprised with this top. It is the perfect go-between when you want to look a little more dressed up than casual, but yet it is casual too! I got the black print. Received tons of compliments. SUPER COMFY. The only thing I would of preferred was a little lower neck line. It’s like a men's t-shirt. Over all GREAT BUY. Give it a shot. I’m sure you'll be so glad you did!!" —Deni D

    Get it from Amazon for $17.95+ (available in sizes S–3XL and 13 colors).

    4. A flowy duster for the beach trip you now have to plan after buying this. Wear it with your swimsuit as a coverup and then straight to dinner with jeans or a dress. It's *chef-kisses-fingers* so versatile.,

    Promising review: "I love the colors and it is so versatile, I've worn it with jeans and a tank and with a long flowy white boho dress. I've gotten so many compliments!" —LMDWilliamson

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in sizes XS-XL and eight prints).

    6. An off-the-shoulder dress featuring bell sleeves and a stretchy top (hello, comfort!) guaranteed to make you forget all about your pants. Denim, who?,

    Promising review: "I'm 5'5 and 130 lb.; I ordered this dress in a medium and typically wear a small. I think either a small or medium would have worked for me due to the stretch! This dress is absolutely stunning and does not look cheap! I received so many compliments on it. It's very flattering and comfortable; the bands on the arm or chest did not slide at all. Great for all types of weather, as it isn't super heavy!" —Kelsey Lynn

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in two colors and sizes S–XL).

    7. A button-up shirt with a cape overlay that'll give all your white button-ups a run for their dang money. I mean, the fierceness here — it knows no bounds.

    Promising review: "I normally wear a size 4, and I ordered a size 6 as the size description recommended for my size and it fits great. This skirt is very cute and the fabric is of good quality. I love that the pockets are nice a deep — I will be able to carry my phone without worry that it'll fall out. I adore this skirt and look forward to wearing it to work (I tend to overdress for work but hey, you only live once). For those looking to order, make sure you go off the size chart in the product description as it gives you the measurements." —Jessi

    Promising review: "SO CUTE, but size down. I'm 5'8, 145 lbs with most of my weight in my lower half. I typically I wear a medium but bought a small for this since it's a flowy top (I wanted it to 'flow' but didn't want to look like I was drowning in the shirt). It fits perfectly and is so cute! I bought the white and pink version, and will need to wear a nude bra underneath as it is a bit see-through but nothing too sheer. love love love." —Dtam

    16. A one-piece, halter-style swimsuit with such an affordable price tag, it would be a sin not to get one in, like, 10+ prints. /

    Promising review: "This is an amazing suit! I didn’t really believe it could fit all body types but I was totally proven wrong. The high bottoms hit at the perfect spot and I’ve never owned a suit that was more modest but also sexy at the same time! I honestly think I’m going to get it in another pattern. Just beware there is some side boob and it’s definitely not a suit you can, like, run in or do lots of activity — but for casual swimming and beaching, it’s perfect." —Breanna Wright

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes S-XXXL and 18 prints).

    Promising review: "Perfect light-weight top. It great for the spring weather — is long enough to wear with leggings or can be knotted up to wear with high waisted denim. I'm wearing a size small." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and 24 prints/colors).

    Promising preview: "It's a cute fun shirt. It fit perfectly. I usually wear an XXL in major brands that I wear. I ordered the same and the fit was great. The material is nice as well. It looks like it would cost more than 9.99. I am pleased with my purchase." —QueenTee

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXXL and 15 prints/colors).

    22. A ruffly dress with batwing sleeves ready to keep you cool (quite literally temperature- and style-wise) on hot summer days.

    Get it from Amazon for $17.84 (available in two colors and sizes S–XL).

    23. A trusty pair of skinny jeans for all the adorable tops you just bought. And besides, one can never own too many pairs of jeans.


    Get them from Target for $27.99 (available in sizes 14-26).

    24. An off-the-shoulder top — and please just LOOK at that darling pom pom trim. I'm sorry, your jeans and shorts are not ready for a top *this* cute.


    Promising review: "As most know, it's hard to find 'nice' clothes on here, but I was honestly so surprised. The shirt is extremely soft and I see no flaws on it. I was kinda worried that the shirt would be too small but actually I could have sized down to have the perfect fit. My upper half is a size 12-14 or 38 D, so I got a large. If you are around my size and want a more baggy shirt, get a large, if not size down and get a medium." —JRS

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and 12 styles/prints).

    Get it from H&M for $49.99 (available in sizes 0-18 and two colors).

    28. A chiffon wrap blouse that'll be the best gift you can give to yourself, bow and all. Hello! The back! And the pleated sleeves! *Swoons.*


    Promising review: "Can't recommend this top enough. If you can dress it up or down, it's my kind of clothes — and this definitely accents more casual outfits beautifully, but also brings the drama if you want to dress it up." —JOYJOYK

    Get it from Express for $39.90 (available in sizes XXS-XL and six colors).

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and three prints).

    Promising review: "So surprised at how cute this top was! I ordered a medium and a large and I like how they both fit! I'm usually a large at places like Forever 21 and those kinds of stores. The medium is super tight and a bit shorter, the large is still tight enough that I don't have to wear a bra but long enough that it's ALMOST not a crop top with high waisted jeans. Love!!" —Jacquelyn Elizabeth

    Promising review: "❤️This dress!!!! Especially for the price! It's super comfy and looks really good on. I'm 5'7, size 4-6 (usually closer to a 6), 150 lbs; the medium fits really well and hugs my curves perfectly. I highly recommend it! I will probably buy another in an alternate color. Enjoy ladies!" —Brandace C Laska

    Get it from Amazon for $16.98+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 34 prints).

    36. A knotted skater dress you can also snag in polkadot and striped prints — and with a price tag like this one, you should absolutely do that!


    Promising review: "Such a cute dress! I ordered a small (I'm usually a two-ish in dress sizes) and it fit perfectly. The back waistline has a sort of elastic material so it can very easily fit slightly more petite girls or those who would wear usually wear a medium. I also love that you can tie the back, which makes the sizing even more flexible!" —Penny Yang

    Get it from Amazon for $22.98+ (available in sizes XS-XL and in five prints).

I ordered the 0XL and I'm a 36DD and it fits perfect. Wearing to my office Christmas party this year (2018). I've also ordered ALLLLLLL the other colors available in my size.

    Promising review: "I'm 5'9 with a 27-inch waist and 40-inch hips. The medium is a perfect baggy, but not overly baggy fit. For me, it's ordering a size down. I'd typically order a large. Thanks to the other reviews I went for the downsize, albeit a bit nervously, but it turned out perfect. These overalls are super lightweight and extremely comfy. Will be ordering more!" —Jo
