    Promising review: "I love the fit, love the feel, just love this dress! I'm a 26/28 and got the 5X and it fits great with plenty of room in case there is any of shrinkage in the wash. A great addition to my wardrobe." —stylingmom

    2. An oversized sweater dress for a comforting alternative on chilly days when all you really want is to stay under your blankets all day. Get every single color and stay that cozy all day, every day.,

    Promising review: "I LOVE THIS SWEATER DRESS! I read the reviews before me and they said if you want the oversized look to go up a size. I am 5’4, 145 pounds, and normally wear a medium. I went up to a large. I normally roll up the sleeve once for a cute cuffed look. DEFINITELY RECOMMEND." —Jodi Hotchstettler

    Get it from Amazon for $32.99+ (available in eight colors and sizes S–XL).

    4. A charming scalloped skater that'll delight perky people who love an outfit as bright as their look on life.,

    Promising review: "I'm always worried when ordering online because I am a little curvy. This dress was amazing! I got compliments from everyone, both men and women. I thought it may be too short but it was not. After reading reviews I got a large and it fits perfectly. I wear a size 12 in dresses and jeans normally." —DeBreaka

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in seven colors and sizes S–XXL).

    5. Or a velvet shift that same person would love in several colors, because it's sure to be as soft on the outside as their sweet self is on the inside.


    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

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in six colors and sizes S–XL).

    6. A fitted pencil dress made of scuba material so striking you know you're gonna end up taking the ~plunge~ and getting it in way too many colors.,

    Promising review: "Let me start by saying, I’m five months pregnant and it still fits beautifully! It's a beautiful semi-formal dress but it's also casual enough to wear on dressed-down occasions. It has a soft fabric and is super comfortable. Beautiful color and fit. I love it!" —Tasha

    Get it from Amazon for $25.97+ (available in 17 colors and sizes S–L).

    7. A ribbed mini with such a lovely look in every hue you may find yourself in a ~draw~ between at least two. Fortunately you can just get both.

    Urban Outfitters

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $29 (available in three colors and sizes XS–XL).

    8. An off-the-shoulder cocktail dress that'll help get your anti-social self out on a Friday night just to show it off. And better yet, it'll help you get out *every* Friday night when you accidentally buy every color and each one needs a night on the town.,

    Promising review: "I ordered this dress just to switch up my usual style... I'm usually in combat boots and armed uniform attire. I ordered an XL. It fit perfectly. I'm a size 16. I got this dress just in time to wear on Mother's Day. IT WAS BEAUTIFUL AND FIT GREAT. I got so many compliments. I wasn't expecting to love it so much. I'm ordering it in black as well." —Shaneen Hayes

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in eight colors and sizes S–XXL).

    9. A casual maxi dress you can casually wear every single day of the week, in every single color.,

    Promising review: "I'm so excited to wear this! It's a beautiful rose pink and so comfortable I could sleep in it! I'd definitely buy it in different colors." —jolindalea

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in 20 colors, two sleeve lengths, and sizes 14–26, with pockets).

    10. A ribbed turtleneck dress in shades of champagne, apple schnapps, and other options worth toasting to. The trouble is, your mind is gonna ~wine~ about them until you get 'um on your body.

    Forever 21

    Promising review: "This is a gorgeous dress with surprisingly great quality and looks great. I bought the black and dark green and they are both beautiful. Sizing is true to size. I usually wear a size 16 or 18 in dresses and the 3X fit me perfectly, with a little extra room to belt it. Go down a size if you want it to be fitted tighter like the picture. There's a nice amount of stretch with the lightweight sweater material. Highly recommend." —Lisa G.

    Get it from Forever 21 for $35 (available in four colors and sizes 1X–3X).

    11. A short sleeve midi so versatile it's sure to change the way you wear your wardrobe... because this dress (every version of it) just became your entire wardrobe.,

    Promising review: "I love this dress! It's the perfect length for tall girls! The material is soft and kinda stretchy, which I like. I definitely recommend this! It's so comfy! I have more on the way!" —Mallory

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in 32 colors and sizes S–XL).

    12. A bell sleeve tunic for anyone who wears their heart on their sleeve and thus, deserves a dress with the very best sleeves to show it off!


    Promising review: "This has become one of my favorite go-to dresses because I can wear it during the day and dress it up for evening! A wardrobe favorite." —Roxanne

    Get it from Amazon for $28.33+ (available in four colors and sizes XS–XL).

    13. A velvet swing dress in multiple floral patterns, all of which you're gonna want to wear botanic-all over the place.


    Promising review: "This dress is gorgeous. I ordered the small and it fits great. I'm 5'4, about 120 pounds, and a 36D. This dress fits as a swing dress should and isn't too long. It's even prettier than I thought that it would be. I like the tiered aspect of it. It adds a little something extra and it and makes it seem a little dressier." —Tiffany

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in five patterns and sizes XS–XL).

    14. A long-sleeved bodycon available in solid colors and sleek patterns. No matter which one you pick, it'll keep you warm and hug your curves the way they deserve.


    Time to bend and snap with the best of them!

    Get it from H&M for $14.99 (available in four colors and sizes XXS–XL).

    15. A chiffon dress you can get in dark colors for your daring moods or warmer tones for when you're feeling lighthearted. No matter which mood you're in, you can basically plan on wanting to keep this dress chiff-on forever.


    Promising review: "This dress looks exactly like the picture and fits great. The material doesn't feel cheap. I'm 5'10 and normally wear a size small so I'm always a little worried about dresses being too short on me. This was the exact length I was expecting. This is a great dress." —erin

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in 22 colors and sizes XS–XXL).

    16. A flowy tunic (with pockets!) in colors as bright as your smile is gonna be when you wear it.


    Promising review: "I really love this dress. It’s very cute and comfortable. The material is soft and seems to be of good quality — it's lightweight but not clingy or see-through. The length is not too short. It is several inches above the knee. The pockets are great and don’t stick out weirdly on the sides as I feared they would. I will probably buy more in other colors. I got the charcoal and it is a nice shade." —Heather L.

    Get it from Amazon for $5.89+ (available in 37 colors and sizes S–4XL, with pockets).

    17. A savvy sweater dress that'll be equal parts cute n' cozy and curiously chic in every heckin' hue.


    Promising review: " I LOVE this dress. I wasn’t expecting the quality it was. I am 5’4, 130 pounds, and ordered the small. It fits perfect... slouchy arms and mid thigh! What I like most is that I can wear it on or off my shoulders. Pairing it with some stockings and over the knee boots for a birthday dinner." —MKMark

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in three colors and sizes S–XL).

    18. A flowing floral dress with buttons and a high waistline. For anyone who doesn't want to ~waist~ time deciding between these dresses — it's best to get at least three.

    Get it from Amazon for $32.99+ (available in 21 colors and sizes 0X–5X).

    19. A sheer T-shirt dress that's gonna be the star wardrobe staple for people who know how to ~mesh~ unique layers together all year long.


    Promising review: "This looks exactly as it's pictured!!! It has vibrant colors and a great fit. I'm 5'5", 115 pounds, and I got a small. I wouldn't mind a larger fit so maybe a medium would've been better, but no complaints! Definitely recommend. A great purchase!" —Erin

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95+ (available in 11 colors and sizes XS–3X).

    20. A charming velvet tunic with sheer patterned sleeves and a billowing cut that'll get you to cut out everything in your closet to make room for... all of these.


    Promising review: "I love this dress. I am 5'4", 180 pounds, and most of my weight is in my mid section. The large is a perfect fit. If you have a big chest though, order the next size up. The material is comfy, nice quality, with stretch." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in 13 colors and sizes XS–XXL).

    21. A spaghetti strap dress for days when you want a darling outfit you can't stop twirling in. Oh, that's everyday? Great. Get them all.,

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in 16 colors and sizes XS–XL, with pockets).

    22. A faux corduroy jumper to bring the nostalgic among us back to their precious '90s childhood, because they can basically get this jumper in every color of Power Ranger.


    Promising review: "I love the material, it doesn’t feel cheap and it's very soft. I paired it with a white stretchy long sleeve v-neck, very opaque black tights, and high heeled sleek black dress boots. It's very unique and fashionable. It's trendy — you don’t see too many pinafores around because they are usually very matronly, this is more of an artsy vibe when paired with the right pieces. I am definitely considering buying another color (the rich black is beautiful). This is a top five Amazon clothing purchase for me!" —CinniBon

    Get it from Amazon for $17.88+ (available in five colors and sizes S–XL).

    23. A boatneck tea dress in enough lovely patterns you should probably get one for all the people in your book club too.,

    Don't forget to grab a petticoat for an extra bit of volume!

    Promising review: "Best dress ever!! I wore this dress to an interview and was hired on the spot! I knew it would make me stand out and I did! I have received many compliments every time I've worn it! The medium fit perfectly. I'm 5'6", 160 pounds, and a 36DD. The quality is some of the best I've seen on Amazon in this price range." —Katherine Schaffuer

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in 41 colors and sizes XS–4X).

    24. A straight neck picnic dress in pretty patterns that'll be a feast for your eyes, no matter which one you pick.

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "I bought this dress and wore it to a batmitzva with a white linen moto jacket! I got so many compliments and the outfit was so comfortable!" —Claire Montero

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $34 (available in three colors and sizes 0–12).

    25. A cinched waist midi that's gonna complete your look in seconds — simply grab this and get dressed in a ~cinch~!,

    Promising review: "I love love LOVE this dress! I'm 4'11" and 230 pounds. I was worried that this dress would be too small (I ordered an XL), but it ended up fitting perfectly! The material is super soft and stretchy and the pattern looks better in person than it does in the picture. The pockets are big enough for me to fit my entire hand in, and I'm not worried about my phone falling out unless I do something super crazy. I COULD LIVE IN THIS DRESS. Definitely buying more in other colors!" —Krysta Snow

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in 25 colors and sizes S–XL, with pockets).

    26. And finally, a bright and bold cowl neck mini in primary colors that'll give everyone around you an education on sensational fashion statements.
