Get it from Amazon for $28.99. Sizes: S–XL. Available in eight colors.

Promising review: "This dress is SO lovely in person! It looks way more expensive than it actually is! It fits well but is definitely curve-hugging. The dress is very comfortable. I just couldn't believe all the beading and extensive detail on it. I'd love to have it in a few different colors!" —Amazon Customer


4. An off-the-shoulder dress with all-over lace so every day can feel like a garden party.,

Get it from Amazon for $26.99+. Sizes: S–XXL. Available in four colors.

Promising review: "This dress took a while to get delivered, but it was definitely worth the wait! It's a very pretty dress and very well made too. It's great that they used a very good material and not one of those thin laces that just breaks down after one or two wears, especially since I just throw all my clothes in the washing machine. Definitely great quality. Perfect length and size. This dress is perfect to wear for special events or date nights. Very affordable, too. Very elegant dress. It looks way more than what I paid for it." —Katrina Go Que

It's very flowy and all the little details seem made very well (pleating details and black 'piping' around the sleeves, collar, & button area). If you are a fan of cute, quirky, comfortable clothing then I HIGHLY recommend you purchase this dress!!" —A. Majewski

The material is thin but I don't find it see through at all, which is great! I love this for fall — maybe as the weather gets colder I'll add a scarf. I love the high-low hem! I think it's what really makes this pretty!" —MommyGetsGlam

Promising review: "OMG, this dress exceeded my expectations and more! It is incredibly flattering, adorable, classy, very comfortable, and great quality. Some reviews said the fabric is stiff?

Don't miss out on this great bargain. You won't regret it!" —LuxuryLover

Promising review: "Love this versatile, comfortable dress so much! Just tried it on at home, and it looks much more expensive than its price point. I can easily style this in a 1950s/vintage way, with the addition of black ribbon belt and kitten heels. Or, when I want to toughen up, it will work equally well with tall leather boots and matching attitude. I may just have to buy another one as a back up!" —M M Harvey
