A button-front midi that is quite possibly the most perfect sundress of all time (it’s got over 2,000 positive reviews).
BuzzFeed’s full write-up on this dress.
Promising review: “I’m one of those people that never writes reviews. I found this dress through a BuzzFeed article and couldn’t resist the white sunflower one. The material is stretchy and just fits your body so well. I didn’t have any problems with it being see-through while I was wearing light gray underwear. The length is cute. The buttons are fake, so they stay uniform all the way down. It’s stretchy across the back of the bodice, so bigger-chested women would love this. My mom and I have completely different body types and the size large fits us both amazingly! I’m definitely going to try to order as many prints as I can!” — Courtney Clark
Price: $21.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 24 colors and prints)
A pretty polka dot dress with POCKETS that are actually big enough to fit your phone or other essentials you want to keep close when you’re out and about enjoying the breeze.
Promising review: “This is my favorite dress of all time. I have it in navy and red! I am 5’3″ and 123 lbs and I ordered the small. It’s the perfect length to wear out, but I also wear it to work and it’s work-appropriate. I’ve received more compliments on this dress than any other I own! It’s so comfortable and I have washed both of them several times and they still look brand new. Great quality. I cannot say enough good things about this dress. You will NOT be disappointed!!!” — Lindsay Thornburg
Price: $19.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 10 colors)
A faux-wrap floral number to have everything coming up roses, even when it’s still too chilly for a sleeveless dress.
Promising review: “I searched through about 300 ‘cocktail dress with long sleeves’ options before finding this gem! The material is great — it stands up to wrinkles/long car rides and doesn’t cling at all. The cut is (really) low so I got some skin/fabric tape to close it up. This is a large; a medium would probably have been too short. I love it!” — Amazon Customer
Price: r $22.99 (available in sizes S-3XL and in 10 prints).
An ombre tie-dye dress so comfy, your favorite tee will decide to retire.
It’s got over 1,500 positive reviews!
Promising review: “I’m always looking for interesting, casual, easy pieces, and I love this one. I’m 5’3”, so I wasn’t sure how the length would be, but it’s awesome — not too short and not too long. The cut has more of a bell shape than I was expecting, but the drape of the material helps quite a bit and it’s cute worn loose or cinched. The material itself has nice drape, but a nice touch of structure, too. I’m super picky about material, but this is super soft — not quite modal, but close. I dig it.” — Resa
Price: $12.99+ (available in sizes XS-3X and in four styles, including a long-sleeved version)
A sweetly embroidered bell sleeve frock guaranteed to make you the belle of the ball (or the picnic, or the wedding, or the cocktail hour).
Promising review: “This dress is beautiful! It’s made of a really nice material that’s thick and not see-through at all. The embroidery on the chest and sleeves is almost perfect. It hits at a great length — it’s not too short and not too long. There are so many different ways you can wear this dress, from dressing it up for a wedding with some heels to wearing it to a BBQ with some flats or sandals. I will definitely be recommending this dress and wearing it a lot!” — Kelsey
Price: $16.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 13 colors and prints)
A cozy maxi dress (with POCKETS!) that’ll have you covered — literally — for everything from a party to a chill day out.
Promising review: “I was looking for something easy to grab and go for weekends or a quick change after work. This dress is perfect! The print isn’t too much or overwhelming either. I ordered several from this company and I will be ordering more in the future.” — Amazon Customer
Price: $16.99+ (available in sizes L-4X and in 18 colors and prints)
An aww-worthy belted number printed with little kitties and pawsitively bursting with cattitude.
Promising review: “I LOVE this dress!!!! I can’t believe how great it is for the price. The first day I wore it, I got five compliments on it. I ordered a large because I’m 5’8″ and always have a hard time finding dresses that work for my height, but the length was perfect! I feel confident wearing this dress.” — Megan Jackson
Price: $27.99+ (available in sizes XS-XL and in 17 prints)
A fun flowing frock that screams, “Surprise, I’m actually a romper!”
Promising review: “I love this romper dress. I could wear it every day. I get so many compliments on it. I’m 5’10” and 180 pounds with big boobs. An extra large fit me and was actually big enough for my torso without giving me camel toe! My friends have all been begging for one of these dresses. It does come wrinkly, but you can just iron it and then enjoy feeling like a goddess!” — Catherine Watkins
Price: $18.99+ (available in sizes S-3XL and in eight prints)
A dramatic boho maxi with its own fan club — it’s got over 2,800 positive reviews!!!
The buttons stop around your knee, so the bottom’s free to be all “swish, swish, bish.”
Promising review: “I bought this dress on a whim and was a little skeptical about it, but I shouldn’t have been. I’ve never received so many compliments on a dress before. I wore it on a trip to the Biltmore Estate 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 so obsessed with it, I even bought two more in different colors. I highly recommend it!” — Amazon Customer
Price: $19.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 29 prints)
A bright, flowery number just as great for work as it is for play.

BuzzFeed’s full write-up on this dress here.
Promising review: “This dress had me at pockets! What a great dress, especially for work! It has pockets on both sides, a work-appropriate hemline, and the material is the kind where you can sit for hours, but it’ll never show a wrinkle! I’m 5’6″ and 150 lbs and the medium fits great. With wedges, it’s the perfect outfit for work: comfy and practical yet classy.” — AprilAries
Price: $16.99+ (available in sizes S-3XL and in 36 prints)
A dotty denim overall dress that’s ready to pair with basically everything in your closet, from your riding boots to your favorite sandals to your go-to white tee.
Promising review: “This is the cutest thing I’ve bought in a long time! It’s long enough on me (I’m 5’9”), the bib covers my chest properly (I’m a 36D), and it looks just like the picture! The straps are adjustable, which makes sizing customizable for you. This dress is adorable and I get compliments every time I wear it! It looks great and is so comfy!” — Jacqueline M.
Price: $22.99+ (available in sizes XS-XL and in two washes)
Over 3,000 vintage vixens have given this baby positive reviews, and some say they especially like to rock it with a
petticoat underneath for extra poof. Check out BuzzFeed’s full write-up on this dress.
Promising review: “This dress exceeded my expectations! It’s so pretty. The belt is removable, so it can be worn however you want — tied in the front, back, or even the side. The top fits so nicely and I’m very happy!” — Harmony A.
Price: $16.69+ (available in sizes XS-3XL and in 45 colors and prints)
A comfy tunic with detailed sleeves so you can bedeck your arms in May flowers without having to suffer through March and April’s showers.
Promising review: “This dress is perfect. It’s so classy and chic. I’m 5’3″ and curvy, so I ordered a size up to account for my hips and butt. It fit fine, but I like adding a belt to make it less flowy. The details of this dress are so nice and I love it” — J.J.
Price: $25.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 15 colors)
Promising review: “I’m typically a size 26 or 28 so I ordered the 5X. I love how the skirt falls on me, but there’s a slight gap at the armpit; I probably could’ve ordered a 4X or 3X and it would’ve fit just fine. The material is super stretchy and will stretch to fit bigger sizes. The pattern is great and the material is thick enough to not be see-through. It has my full seal of approval. I’m convinced these dresses are made out of faith, trust, and pixie dust. So much so that I ordered another one as soon as I tried this on. The only negative thing I can say is that if you run hot like I do, this won’t be a summer dress for you (but it would be perfect for spring or fall) because the fabric is kind of a mix between swimsuit and scuba material.” — Shayracha
Price: $18.99+ (available in sizes XS-5XL and in 45 prints)
A gorgeous lace cocktail number, which may inspire you to throw a garden party just so you can wear it.
BuzzFeed’s full write-up on this dress, which has over 2,800 (!!!!!) positive reviews!
Promising review: “This dress is killer. The fabric is high quality and the lace isn’t delicate enough to rip. I can’t tell you how amazing I felt in this. It’s so beautiful. Underneath the lace, there’s a layer of fabric to shield you from any see-through mishaps. There are also rubber straps in the shoulder area so that the dress doesn’t slip off, which is so ingenious! I wore it for over 10 hours at a wedding and I had no problems. I just love this dress to death! Buy it!” — Jennifer
Price: $19.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in three necklines and six colors)
A blooming party dress that’s machine washable, because practicality is one thing it doesn’t give the cold shoulder.

Promising review: “I wore this to a wedding and everyone loved it! I bought it in light blue and wore it with silver sparkly heels and a silver clutch. I felt like Cinderella. I recommend it to anyone looking for a special event dress.” — Jo
Price: $18.41+ (available in sizes XS-XL and in four colors and prints)
Promising review: “I absolutely love this dress. It’s usually so hard for me to find long dresses; I’m 5’7” and most fall at mid-calf or higher on me. This dress comes right to my ankle and brushes ever so slightly on the tops of my feet! The pockets on the dress are just the right size for my cell phone. The color is so vibrant and the material is thick and soft. I’ve already placed another order for a different color of this dress and I can’t wait until it arrives!” — L. Torres
Price: $25.99 (available in sizes S-XXL and in four prints)

A breezy ruffled tunic dress so effortlessly chic and affordable, I bet you think it couldn’t get any better. But guys, it also has POCKETS.
One of my coworkers has this in red and I can confirm that it looks just as Insta-worthy IRL!
Promising review: “So. Dang. Cute!!! I love this loose, flowy dress for any occasion. It fits true to size and 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

It’s got a comfy elastic waist!
Promising review: “This is a very cute, lightweight dress. I’m 5’4” and 110 lbs and I ordered the small, and it fits great. It’s not too short and it’s cute dressed up or down. I get multiple compliments every time I wear it. It’s so comfy and pretty flattering.” — Makennamm
Price: $22.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 37 colors and prints)
Promising review: “This dress is perfect. It fits true to size. The dress is well-made and the construction of the shoulders is great. You don’t have to worry about constantly adjusting them — they stay in place and the ruffles look better in person than the picture shows. I would definitely recommend this dress, and the price is great for the product you get.” — key2beauty

A super affordable boho tunic dress that’s got so many cute details, it’s hard to pick one as the primary tas- selling point.
Promising review: “I wear this with a belt around my waist and some leggings and it’s SUPER cute. I get tons of compliments on it. It’s been washed about 20 times and it has shrunk some but still fits well, and the colors haven’t faded. I will order more in other colors.” — Jessica

Price: $25.99 (available in sizes S-3XL and in 43 colors and prints)
A boho tunic dress, which I’m not saying you HAVE to pair with a floppy hat and/or flower crown and hoop earrings, but am definitely saying you should.
Promising review: “I rarely write reviews…especially for a dress that costs less than $35. However, this one is awesome and everyone needs to buy it. I got a ton of compliments when I wore this to work, and then decided to wear it on a Hinge date that night. The date was drunk, but the dress was fabulous. Buy this, wear it to work, wear it on lame dates, wear it to the coffee shop. Wear it everywhere. It’s cute, flattering, and comfy. The only thing I wish is that it had pockets.” — Angela Paglino

Promising review: “OMG! Awesome!!!!! I’m 5’4” and 145 lbs. I bought a medium and it drapes beautifully. I plan to wear it on my shoulders, and the elastic seems strong enough to hold. I bought the white and it’s light and airy — not see though at all. I’m so thrilled. I will buy it in black ASAP!” — LB
Price: $29.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in six colors)
You can do a lot with accessories and this dress to make it look fresh for different occasions — going with booties instead of heels or adding a long necklace or belt could make it look like a whole new piece!
Promising review: “This dress far surpassed my expectations! I ordered my regular size and it fit like a glove! My BFF’s 15-year-old daughter said I look like a modern day Cinderella (she totally made my day!). The dress is beautifully made and the model pictures do this dress no justice. I would buy this dress a 100 times over!!” — anitaj

I absolutely love this dress, and I didn’t want to take it off at the end of the day. Comfortable, lightweight, easy, absolutely beautiful, and true to size.” — Mushka

A retro-inspired sheer panel dress I’m sure will ~mesh~ well with your fave flats, heels, and boots.
Another reason to love it? It has pockets!!!
Promising review: “I was shocked that this dress fit me so perfectly. I’m very hesitant to buy dresses, even when I can try them on. I was nervous how this was gonna look on me because of how inexpensive it is. I can honestly say that I absolutely LOVE this dress! The fit is perfect, the style is exactly what I was looking for, and I love how confident and beautiful I felt while wearing it.” — Andy4664
