    1. A casual lil' sundress with two pockets(!!) that's stretchy and super functional — you'll almost feel bad that a dress this cute can feel so good.,

    Promising Review: "I originally purchased this dress because I was looking for solid wardrobe staples (bonus for pockets). This was all that and more! The material is super soft and comfy as well as figure-flattering. It hits a few inches above my knee, so it's still work-appropriate. I love that I can wear it with a denim jacket and sandals or flats to dress it up or wear to work and also pair it with sneakers or flip-flops and go completely casual. This dress is versatile in every way, and I will be buying more!" —Christina Narusewicz

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 35 colors and prints).

    2. This ruffled sleeve baby doll dress for you to wear plain and loose or dressed up all day without looking forward to changing into something comfier at the end of the day!,

    Promising Review: "I love this dress! It's very boho chic, and it is lined so it's not sheer. It's a good quality dress, perfect to layer in the fall! I would definitely recommend this dress to others!" —Amazon Customer

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

    3. A long-sleeve frock dress with puffy sleeves and embroidered eyelet detailing because you can easily (lazily?) pull it on and look cute but feel like you're wearing a loose, oversized shirt.

    Urban Outfitters

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $119 (available in sizes XS-L).

    4. An A-line button down midi dress for a flattering flare that ya can wear on a lovely autumn stroll (and with a cute denim jacket, mayhaps?).,

    Promising Review: "This dress is beautiful. It fits so good (and I am a curvy girl who usually wears a US 14). It’s soft, and it doesn’t wrinkle when you sit in it all day. The material is a nice medium-weight that would be good to wear anywhere. It has become my go-to dress. You can dress it up with some heals and pearls or down with a pair of Converse and a jean jacket." —Tori

    Get it from Amazon for $28.90 (available in sizes S-XL and in 20 colors or prints).

    5. This loose tunic dress that's pleated enough for some shape and movement so you feel like you made some effort, but also loose enough that you can lounge around your home in it without feeling stiff.,

    Promising Review: "This dress is absolute perfection! I purchased for a Texas game day brunch — a good burnt orange color is hard to come by. The fit was impeccable — flowy without looking ill-fitting, and hit me just above the knee. I wore with cowboy boots and loved that I could chase my toddler around while still looking cute in this dress. The fabric is just thick enough to lay smooth and not cling, while not being heavy. Not see thru at all. The balloon sleeves are EVERYTHING. Going to buy in more colors right now!" —FitGirlInFlight

    Get it from Amazon for $24.98+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 27 colors and prints).

    6. A beautifully shaped chiffon maxi dress to wear to your (socially distanced) farmers market, then keep on as ya make your fresh lunch and feel like an accomplished person.

    Free People

    Get it from Free People for $168 (available in sizes XS-XL and in two colors).

    7. An oversized plaid shirt-dress because if you can't wear plaid in the fall, when can ya wear it? It's super versatile and has a high-low hem so it's not just a giant flannel.,

    Promising Review: "This dress fits every occasion! I love the fact you can either dress it up with a fashion belt or dress it down and let it hang loosely. The fabric is also very thick and durable, so it's definitely not cheaply made — so it's worth the price you're paying! Overall very satisfied with my purchase <3" —Hilary Lynn

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 11 colors).

    8. This knitted bodycon dress for that feeling of wearing an oversized long-sleeve shirt with a hoodie-wrapped around your waist. Except, this is knitted and actually a dress.,

    Promising Review: "My favorite part about this dress is that although it is intended as a fall dress, you can really wear it year round. It’s not so thick/hot that you couldn’t wear it on a cool summer right. I went up a size because I didn’t want it to be too form-fitting, and I’m glad I did, it’s on the shorter side. Very cute, and the tie in the front is super-flattering!" —AB

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 22 colors).

    9. A lightweight floral smocked dress to give ya that sophistication. And you won't feel annoyingly restricted if you're sitting around and vid-chatting in it thanks to the flowy skirt!

    A model wears the floral dress with the smocked top that ends at the waist, where the dress flares slightly and hangs loosely down to the knees

    10. This simple and dainty tiered-bottom sleeveless dress so you can slip it on and go about your day. You can even layer it with a jacket or sweatshirt, and tall boots or booties! Plus, it has pockets!!,

    Promising Review: "Super comfy and not too baggy or fitted. It hides my tummy pooch but is still somewhat fitted. Comfy rayon that seems to breathe and not stifle me during hot flashes...haha! I have two of these dresses, and I am buying one more in another color. I wish they had more colors!!" —Heidi K.

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 12 colors).

    12. This fitted sweater dress that's perfect for cozying up in during ~sweater weather~.,

    Promising Review: "This sweater dress is just what I've been looking for this fall/winter. I think it's conservative enough and fashionable enough to wear for work, class, or an interview. The dress reaches right above my knee, which is fine since I end up pairing it with thick leggings. It's like my first choice when I think of dressing casual yet fashionable." —Malado

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes 2-24 and in 27 colors).

    13. Or, this oversized sweater dress for the days you want the perks of both getting dressed and staying curled up in your blanket!,

    Promising Review: "My wife likes the feel of a loose robe, but a robe is strictly an 'indoor use' thing. She has a lot of hoodies and coats for outdoor wear, but they're not as comfy as a big soft robe. This sweater promised to be warm and loose — long sleeves, goes down almost to the knees, etc. It won't stop the wind, but what the heck does, besides uncomfortable microfiber?! Anyway, she put this sweater on and LOVES it! Now she wants another one in other colors. #Winning." —Cheri H.

    Get it from Amazon for $32.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 13 colors).

    15. This short-sleeve midi dress with pockets for an easy outfit that you won't have to worry about sitting down in.,

    Promising Review: "WOW SO IMPRESSED! The dress is great quality and made well! The top of the dress (un)buttons so it's nursing friendly and the bottom has faux buttons. The color and fabric are the same as in the pictures. The fabric is very soft, and this dress it unbelievably comfortable! Will be buying in every color!!!" —Ashley

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in eight colors).

    16. A fringe paisley midi dress that screams ~FALL~ in style and color, while the loose sleeves and flowing handkerchief hem and fringes leave ya feeling breezy and comfy!


    Get it from Intermix for $745 (available in sizes 0-14).

    17. A long maxi dress because tbh it looks so soft and comfy that you wouldn't mind taking a nap in it. It's got a side-slit for some airflow and you can tie the ends if you wanna change it up.

    A reviewer wears the black v-neck maxi dress with a denim jacket over it, then without a jacket and has the front end of the dress tied in a knot above her ankles

    Promising Review: "LOVE this dress!!!! Fits just how I want it! I was worried it wouldn't fit well because I'm a B cup, have no curves, and had a C-section. I figured it would make me look boxy, but I'm THRILLED! The dress is stunning and comfortable! The straps are ADJUSTABLE!!!!! Ladies of any age and shape will look lovely in this dress. I love how the slits in the dress are slightly more towards the back. And this dress has POCKETS!!!! Just trust me and buy this dress. It's amazing, and I want one in every color. Toss a cute jacket or sweater over it and your set for cold weather. Definitely worth buying many of these dresses. Well made, will last years and years." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in XS-XXL and in 28 colors and prints).

    18. This cupro zip-front, drawstring shirt dress so you can relax in style and comfort, thanks to the drawstring and zipper giving the dress some shape and the soft, loose skirt for some movement.

    Promising Review: "So. Dang. Cute!!! Love this loose, flowy dress for any occasion. The color is great! If you’re looking for a form fitting dress, this is NOT it. It’s flowy and causal while still flattering!" —Robin R

    Promising Review: "Thanks to the previous reviewer I knew I was getting pink. I really like it. The dress is a simple camisole and is a midi. The sweater is gorgeous and super soft, and the reason I am keeping this set. Together they look just perfect!" —bubbletrouble

We held a simple BBQ early fall at our home and I wanted to be comfortable yet look good (as it was also my birthday). I loved it so much I ended up wearing it for family photos. I plan to order this in another color as well for next season. The waist tie allows for you to tie as tight or loose as you prefer. I can wear this with casual sneakers or dress it up with heels. This dress is the perfect addition to your wardrobe." —N. Panzardi

They are incredibly comfortable. I could see how someone more creative than me dressing them up with a belt, boots and jewelry and making them more stylish for work or a night out with friends." —RRP

However, when it arrived, it hugged all of my curves, was very well made, and was long enough so that it didn't ride up when I walk. I wore it to a birthday party and got a lot of compliments, and it was super comfy! I'll probably have to buy it in more colors, I'm obsessed!" —Chantz Wallace

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in sizes S-XL and in 10 colors).
