    Promising review: "Absolutely perfect. The fabric is super soft, stretchy, and comfortable. The skirt is long enough that you don't have to worry about it being too short. I am 5'4" and it falls a few inches above the knee. The princess seams in front are flattering. The cut of the dress is just right! The fabric is breathable enough for a warmer day, but feels like it would keep you warm in cooler weather. The back has a half-zipper so its super easy to put on. The collar stays up just right and doesn't wrinkle easily. Can't praise it enough, and it's a steal at $24." —ScarletViolet

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in sizes XS–2XL and five colors).

    2. A flannel dress, because a flannel shirt just doesn't give you enough of The Best Fabric Ever.


    Promising review: "This is a warm, comfortable dress. It's a winter dress for me, very festive while still appropriate for work because of the flannel material. The cotton is substantial while still being soft. The buttons aren't the best quality but seem decent enough for now. I'm very satisfied and have already gotten several compliments on my first day wearing it." —Annaconda

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99 (available in sizes S–2XL and six colors).

    3. A fiercely studded bodycon dress to arm yourself against the coming cold. Me: "Don't say it, don't say it, don't say it..." Also Me: "Winter is coming."

    Promising review: "Love, love, love!!!! I'd give it ten stars if I could. I wore it on New Years Eve and got so many compliments on it. I'm 5'9", 135 pounds, and I ordered a medium. It fits perfectly. The material is thick and high quality, and it kept me warm. I'm very impressed by this dress." —Stacey

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

    4. An oversized sweatshirt dress that's making me weirdly thirsty for Pete Davidson all of a sudden?


    Promising review: "Excellent quality and construction, surprisingly so at $25. The fabric is thick, warm, and OH SO SOFT, especially on the inside. If I wasn't broke-chic, I'd even pay $40. The sleeves are the perfect length, hitting just past my wrist, but the ribbed cuff keeps them secure at the wrist without being tight. I was worried about the side pockets getting all wadded up after the first wash and then being unflattering to the figure, but I really do not think that'll be the case. It's a loose fit without being frumpy. The length is PERFECT for leggings as it hits mid-thigh with enough room to hide my 'bubble butt'. Used the vendor size chart, and it's spot on accurate, so no need at all to upsize —

    might go down a size if you want a slimmer fit though." —Kyla

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes S–3XL and 34 colors).

    5. A ribbed turtleneck dress because it's finally been proven once and for all that turtlenecks can be sexy. Rejoice!,

    Promising review: "It's actually so perfect! I usually don't look good in a turtleneck, but this one is so cute! The material is heavy, meaning it won't show all the folds and rolls on your stomach and other areas and because it is heavy, it drapes over your bottom, creating a beautiful and classy silhouette! I'm definitely ordering it in different colors!" —Jenny.

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in sizes XS–2XL and 14 colors).

    6. A mini dress whose bows make you look like a 'lil gift. Pair with black tights to become a LITERAL stocking stuffer.


    Promising review: "Best ever! I asked for this for Christmas and I was in love from the moment I tried it on. I got many compliments on it. I love the fit as well, and the back of the shirt with the bows is just too cute. I will have to buy more in other colors." —goldcougar

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in sizes 4–22 and eight colors).

    7. A long-sleeved maxi that will finally give you an excuse to get that "Thanks, it has pockets!" tattoo you've been wanting for so long.,

    Promising review: "SOOOOO comfortable! I am 5' 2" so it was a little long even with heels, but that didn't stop me from wearing it! I got so many compliments on it. I paired it with a blanket scarf and wedge booties, and it's absolutely perfect! I will order more!" —Blonde Babe

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes S–2XL and 10 colors).

    8. A long-sleeved floral dress to bring a healthy dose of spring optimism to the six month nightmare that is winter. Sorry, negativity isn't going to get us anywhere. Winter's great!

    Promising review: "I love this dress! The pattern is fun but elegant enough to wear to a wedding. It's perfect for my corporate job, but cute enough for date night! Definitely a great buy!" —Cassaundra Goats

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in sizes S–2XL and seven colors).

    Promising review: "I ordered this dress for my 50th Birthday and I’m glad I did! This dress is of great quality, has a nice stretch to it, and hugs you in all the right places! It was a tad bit long on my 5 foot 1 frame, but that’s what I wanted! I got so many compliments and inquiries on where to get it! If you are thinking of getting this dress, please do it!" —Andrea

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99 (available in sizes 14–24 and three colors).

    10. A ruffled velvet bodycon dress for rolling up to the office holiday party like a sexy panther and showing everyone what you've been working with under that cardigan this whole time.


    Promising review: "This dress is AMAZING! The color is vibrant, and the fabric is what you would expect for velvety amazingness! High quality dress! Love it! I would order it again in different color! Curvy friendly, but size up! Runs smaller BUT has a stretch." —Loran

    Promising review: "The reviews are what encouraged me to buy this dress. I'm always hesitant to purchase clothes online, but this is a win! I've received so many compliments when wearing it. The material is nice and the construction feels sturdy. It's light enough to wear in the summer, but I could definitely see myself wearing tights and a sweater and making this a staple well into winter." —Kaylin Brodzki

    14. A slitted maxi so you only have to shave ONE leg during your long winter hibernation.,

    Promising review: "Thrilled with this dress! I bought it last second to attend a fall mountain wedding, and it could not have been more perfect. The fabric is a wonderful weight that feels expensive, the dress is very well made, and the muted fall-orange color is just gorgeous. I received a ton of compliments, but more importantly this dress fit perfectly and I felt very confident and good in it! I will definitely consider this brand again for future purchases." —LeAnne

    18. A peplum dress with an amazing, big-ass bow. Who's the best gift of the year? YOU ARE!,

    Promising review: "Fits like a glove, as if it were tailor-made for me. I'm a US size 10/12 and 5ft 71/2 " tall and 170 lbs (38-30-42). I chose the XL, and it is perfect. Not tight and very church-appropriate.The length is about an inch and half below my knee. The material is thick enough for winter and is not see-through. I purchased the Wine Red and it is as pictured. Plan to get it in the black as well. I'm loving this Dokotoo line." —Lolo DaCosta

    Get it from Amazon for $31.99 (available in sizes S–2XL and five colors).

    19. A cowl neck, belted sweater dress that validates the fact that "warm" and "fashionable" are NOT mutually exclusive.


    Get it from ASOS for $56 (available in sizes 12–28).

    20. A floral maxi so that you FINALLY have something to wear to a winter wedding that you wouldn't also wear to a funeral.,

    Promising review (right photo): "This dress is stunning. The fabric is heavier, which made it great for the fall wedding I attended. It has very good-sized pockets. All of the seams are great. The waist band is cinched in enough to just pull in the waist, making it not to tight but giving the dress shape. The dress without heels hit the floor, and with a 1.5 inch wedge it barely hits the floor, making it super easy to walk in. I was also able to put leggings on under it to help with keeping warm. The fabric is not see through, and the color is more of a blue-teal." —Debbi

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and three colors).

    Get it on ModCloth for $89 (available in sizes XXS–4X).

    22. A body-con keyhole-neck dress because a little cold will NOT stop you for going out and shaking your booty this year!,

    Promising review: "I was a bit hesitant about buying the dress, being plus-sized and broad in the shoulders. I was so wrong! The material of the dress felt almost like fleece inside. It definitely kept me warm at night. It’s thick material so you don’t have to worry about a slip. I did have to wear some spanx to smooth out the extras, but it was perfect! I wore it with a leather jacket, high heels and just felt so sexy. I wear an XL, as I am a size 14. Buy it for a night out during winter!" —bgurlee

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99 (available in sizes S–XL and eight colors).

    23. A turtleneck sweater dress to stay snug as a bug in a...turtleneck.

    24. A striped maxi you can covertly wear over leggings, jeans, or — I double dog dare you — snow pants., Amazon

    Promising review: "Wow! I got so many compliments on this dress when I wore it. The red color is vibrant without being too loud. The material is of good quality and soft. I'm 5'2", so it was a bit long and I had to hem it. I was ok with that. The dress has pockets. It's just a nice looking, comfortable dress whose sleeves make it perfect for fall here in the South." —Deanna

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99 (available in sizes S–XL and seven colors).

    25. A bell-sleeved lace dress to wear while playing the role of "bereaved widow of summer."

    26. A pleated fit and flare dress Mrs. Claus totally rocked back in her single days when she was just a teacher named Jessica trying to figure out this crazy thing called life.,

    Promising review: "This red dress is thick yet has a beautiful drape to it. The sleeves are lantern-shaped and have a cute ruffled detail on the edge. The pin tucks in the front and back are placed in the perfect spot to accentuate the waist. The dress fits like a glove. It is a bit longer on me than the model (I am 5'2 for reference). It's a perfect dress for Valentines Day or the holidays!" —ruth maldonado

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in sizes XS–2XL and 10 colors).
