Rating: 5/5 Price: $160 Sizes: 4-16 Available in four colors.

Rating: 4/5 Price: $68 Sizes: XS-L Available in three colors.

Rating: 5/5 Price: $54.99 Sizes: S-L Available in two colors.

Rating: 5/5 Price: $70.99 Sizes: 2-14 Available in three colors.

15. An empire-waisted tank in a nautical stripe.
Rating: 4/5 Price: $65 Sizes: 1X-3X Available in five colors.

This dress could even look nice worn to a meeting with a cropped jacket, or out to a casual dinner or day at the beach/lake. This dress was a great find, and I have to buy a second one!” —Anonymous
16. A tank that’ll have you doing the ~twist~.
Rating: 4/5 Price: $69 Sizes: S-L

17. A floor-length dress that rocks the off-the-shoulder trend.
“This dress looks even better in person. I got the 2X and it hugs my curves in all the right places. I will be dressing up with some bling and accessories and I know I will look fab and be very comfy. I could not be happier with this purchase.” —Ladee M
18. A mini dress with maximum zigzag.
Rating: 5/5 Price: $47.99 Sizes: S-L Available in three colors and patterns.
“After trying on about 25 dresses from various stores, this one was the winner. I wanted something that was classy and comfortable and my goal was to stay fairly inexpensive. This dress is loose yet still elegant and the bonus is that it can easily be dressed up or down. All around a great staple item.” —Brittany B
20. A light blue lace mini that looks hot while keeping you cool.
Rating: 4/5 Price: $52 Sizes: XS-L Available in four colors.
“Beautiful little staple for your wardrobe! The fabric is elegant and hangs nicely. It is better quality than expected for the price! The only drawback is that it is a bit sheer so you really have to consider your undergarments!” —Sara L
22. A wrap dress that will have you singing “Lady In Red.”
Rating: 5/5 Price: $98 Sizes: 0X-4X
“I have an innate mistrust of true wrap dresses. They always seem to end up hanging just a little bit wrong, pulling in uncomfortable places, or gapping strangely. But then I tied it and wowza! It hugs all the right curves. It sits perfectly over my cleavage, revealing a sexy-but-not-scandalous amount. The color is great and the ruffle is super cute!” —Caitlyn M
24. A vintage-inspired bodycon that’ll make you feel like a femme fatale.
Rating: 4/5 Price: $48 Sizes: S-2X Available in three colors.
“Love the fit & stretch of this dress. I already bought this dress in cream and mint and am going to buy it in black. I’m hoping it’ll show up in more colors!” —Allison
