    Forever 21

    Promising review: "Dress is the perfect length. Maxi dresses are usually too short on me but it fits perfect. The deep v makes it a little sexier and the slit isn’t too revealing. The only thing wrong is the color doesn’t match the picture. It’s a dark navy blue." —Kenz S.

    Forever 21

    Promising review: "I love the fit of this one-piece. It has enough coverage in the top, and just enough coverage in the bottom to be quite sexy." —Shaquana G.

    Price: $27.90 (available in sizes S–XL)

    25. A chiffon blouse with a contrast tie neck for an office-appropriate option that'll be classic without being boring.

    Promising review: "The most wonderful thing about this is that they didn't scrimp on material for the skirt, so it flows around you fantastically. I got so many compliments on it everywhere I went. Even when I went into the Forever 21 store wearing it, the employees did double takes and told me it looked really nice. It's fancy, but the material is just casual enough to wear out and look like you're just really that special." —Brigitte D.

    Price: $39.90 (available in sizes S–L and in white)
