spaghetti strap dress so cute, you're gonna want to eat it right up. Throw a cardigan over it in the fall or toss a T-shirt on underneath, because it's far too darling to only wear in the summer sun!
Promising review: "I ordered this dress out of desperation. I just had my fourth kid and I absolutely never have time to shop lately. I'd been wanting a fresh spring dress and this came up when I searched. I’m pretty impressed with it. I like the material — it's very soft. I really love how the buttons aren’t real because then my huge boobs can’t pull them open like most button down shirts do. I’m definitely going to order more prints now that I see how well it fits. I love it!" — Bdv2642
Price: $21.99+ (available in 33 colors and sizes S–XXL)
V-neck piece that'll put a ~wrap~ on your hunt for the perfect everyday dress.
Promising review: "I purchased this dress because I thought it looked so pretty on the model in the photos. The dress is just as beautiful in person. It's very flattering and lightweight. I was worried that the front would be a bit too short on me, but it was not. I'm super happy with this purchase and I would recommend it to others." — Tatjana
Price: $25.99+ (available in five colors and sizes XS–XXL)
layered ruffle tunic for anyone who wants to be cozy, cute, and comfortable even when it's cold.
Promising review: "This is worth every penny! I had my eye on this dress for a while and finally decided to take a chance on it even though it's more money than I usually spend on myself. I wore it with leggings and ankle boots and a thin cami on a breezy 50 degree day of shopping, and I was perfectly comfortable whether outside walking or inside heated shops. The layers of knitted and woven material block the wind but the loose swing of the dress allows for air flow. The pockets are darling and functional, and the ruffled skirt is precious — without being childish. I seriously recommend trying this dress if it appeals to you." — Amazon Customer
Price: $29+ (available in six colors and sizes S–XXL, with pockets)
short sleeve boho number that'll basically beg to be paired with a selection of your dad's sneakers. Show fashion sense what's up!
Promising review: "First I got the yellow-flowered print — it fits perfectly on the shoulders and it's easy to slip on. It feels as if I'm wearing air! Or have become a billowing cloud. The pattern is very pretty, combining yellow, black, and white — unusually remarkable. It's been remarked on favorably every time I wear it. My husband loves it, strangers come up to admire it and most importantly, I love the way it makes me feel and look. I live in a hot summer climate and this dress meets the challenge. I liked it so much I've also gotten the red (I usually look horrid in red, but this one works) and am awaiting the blue. I wouldn't usually go this wild on spending but the cost of each dress is so low I'm stocking up. Added note: it washes well." — Charlotte O. Lowe
Price: $20.99+ (available in 28 colors and sizes XS–3XL, with pockets)

sweatshirt dress that proves wearing a dress doesn't have to mean dressing up.
Promising review: "This is really comfortable and adorable! It's really cute to wear around the house but when I wear it out, I like to wear leggings with it to stay warm because of the thin material. Overall I really do like this long sleeve shirt-dress." — Katy Mospanyuk
Price: $12.99+ (available in 10 colors and sizes S–XL)
boho beaut that's gonna look perfectly cider-doughnut-chic in every farmers' market photo you take this fall.
Promising review: "I love this dress! I’m 5’3 and 163 pounds. I wear a 36D bra. I love the material. It's very soft. It's not thick, but not see-through thin. I ordered another one and I think I’m going to purchase a third. I am very pleased with my purchase!!! I rate it at five stars across the board!" — Joyce
Price: $25.99+ (available in 14 colors and sizes XS–XXL)
T-shirt bodycon for a simple everyday look that's also darn comfy.

I wore it on a trip with my husband and in laws and we honestly couldn't get through the day without someone stopping me every few minutes to ask where I got my dress or to tell me how gorgeous it was. It flowed beautifully on that windy day. I'm obsessed with it, I even bought two more in different colors. I highly recommend it!!" — Amazon Customer
Price: $18.99+ (available in six colors and sizes XS–XXL)

Promising review: "Y'ALL. I do not have enough good things to say about this dress. This is the second one I've bought in a different color and it does nothing but impress. It is knee length so there's no accidental flashing, it has adjustable straps that cross in the back for a great fit, and it HAS POCKETS. It can be dressed up or down, I wore it to a wedding as well as to an afternoon of winery hopping. It's THAT versatile!" — Alex fo Falex

Promising review: "I bought this dress to wear at my casual wedding. It looked and felt great! I had tried on sooo many dresses, wanting to look dressy, but not too dressy. None looked right or felt good on. I bought this dress simply because I had gotten my bridesmaids simple blue dresses and I thought their dresses would complement this one, but when I tried it on, I fell in love with it. I will definitely be wearing it again and again." — Amazon Customer

flannel shirt dress so you can make all your lumberjack dreams come true after a ~log~ hard day behind a desk.
Promising review: "This dress fits every occasion! I love the fact you can either dress it up with a belt or dress it down and let it hang loose. The fabric is very thick and durable, it's definitely not cheaply made, so it's worth the price you're paying! It's true to size and it doesn't shrink in the wash. I am very satisfied with my purchase." — Hilary Lynn

I am 5'4" and the dress hits me about mid-knee. The fabric feels luxurious and does not wrinkle. The subtle dashes of plum add interest and depth. I am looking forward to ordering more clothes from this manufacturer in the future. I LOVE this dress!" — tinycamper

This dress runs small, reviewers recommend ordering a size up for a form fit.
Promising review: "I was SO happy with this dress! I needed the perfect 'corporate appropriate' dress for my work Christmas party.

Promising review: "I am obsessed with this little dress. It hits the knee, with a beautiful boatneck. The bow can be tied in the front or the back. The top is tapered to the 'belt' in the middle, so it's not just a t-shirt...it accentuates your shape. It's really comfortable and perfect for summer/fall. And of course, it has POCKETS!!! I am buying more in other colors and with the other sleeves. This is a perfect 'throw on and go,' dress. You can't beat it for the price." — @juliannajanayoung
Price: $18.99+ (available in 23 colors and sizes 4–16, with pockets)
off-shoulder mini that might be tiny, but it's gonna be mighty.
Promising review: "I purchased this dress for me and my girlfriends for birthday pictures. We all loved the dress. They are very fun, playful, flirty dresses. The dress is thin, but not too thin, which worked out great since my birthday is in August, it was super hot. The dresses are made of a relaxed material that is stretchy, so there's room to play with size. This dress is appropriate for women of various shapes and sizes." — Tina
Price: $21.68+ (available in five colors and sizes M–3X)

slim fit dress made for first dates and family dinners when you wanna look great and also wanna fit an entire burrito in your stomach without having to unbutton your pants.
Promising review: "This is a really cute and comfortable dress. I have a bigger torso and narrow hips so it's a little snug up top, but plenty of room down below. It fits true to size, based on the chart. The length is perfect. It's a few inches above my knee, so it's short enough to be flirty, but not so short that I'm worried about putting on a show. It dresses up nicely with a scarf and boots. It would look great with tights or leggings as well. The material is T-shirt like, which is what I wanted. It's not see through, but not too thick. It has some stretch to it and I can move around without any discomfort. I'm tempted to buy it in other colors as well. Overall, I'm very pleased and look forward to wearing it for both casual and dressy occasions." — Jennifer Kathryn
Price: $19.99+ (available in 13 colors and sizes XS–XXL)

Price: $23.99+ (available in eight colors and sizes S–XL, with pockets)
slip dress you could accessorize in so many different ways you can get away with wearing it every darn day of the week. It's so good lookin' no one would even think to complain.

velvet dress that'll look so shiny and chic your friends will be green with envy.
Promising review: "This dress exceeded my expectations! The material is beautiful, it's springy/bouncy, the color is lush, and the fit is gorgeous. It's just what I wanted. The velvet hugs and slinks against the body, so somehow the dress comes off as sexy despite the baggy shape. The buttons are gold mirrors sewn with sturdy thread and the ruffle at the bottom is actually elastic! So there's no tug as I step. I'm going to wear it to the theatre this week and romping with my five year old this weekend. Perfect." — Amazon Customer
Price: $24.99+ (available in six colors and sizes S–XL)
Promising review: "I wore this gorgeous dress for a semi-formal New Years Eve event in Chicago. I couldn’t have asked for a better fit or material. The best part was how it flowed. I brought in 2018 looking and feeling wonderful! This dress got many many compliments! I will be purchasing the black and navy next!" — Williams
Price: $37.99+ (available in six colors and sizes S–3X)
Promising review: "The fit of this dress is great. The material is very light and soft. The pattern is very clear. I got the dark green, and it's not overwhelming, but very cute once you notice the pattern. I tend to be small on top and large on bottom, and when I order this in other patterns, will be trying the medium as I like things slightly fitted in the waist. The inside of the fabric is crisp white, so if/when the skirt flips up at all on the dark pattern, it's very obvious. I don't see that as a problem necessarily, but something to be aware of. I was very impressed with this dress, especially for the price." — Rachel S.
Price: $18.99+ (available in 43 colors and sizes XS–5X)

I am very happy with this dress and will be wearing it throughout the spring." — Andrea A.
Price: $21.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL, with pockets)

I bought this in both blue and red and they fit with just enough room to feel like a nice relaxed sweatshirt. The blue is a royal blue and the red is a wine. I am so excited to be super warm and cozy all the rest of the winter! I LOVE how comfortable and long it is. The bottom hits just below the knee. I am so glad I bought two so I can have one to wear while one is in the wash. I'm going to be living in these." — Erin Parker

I feel so pretty in this dress!" — MelB

Promising review: "I'm pleasantly surprised! Criss-cross necklines rarely work for me, but this is nice! The fabric is breathable and thin, but not too thin.
