A cutout back maxi described by one reviewer as “literally perfect” which means that hello and bonjour, I am absolutely adding this to my cart. I, too, would like literal perfection in my wardrobe.
A draped satin shirt dress available in chartreuse, a hue with a fancy schmancy name that evokes the feeling of popping champagne on a private yacht. To put it simply: luxury is wearing this yellow-green hybrid.
A deep-V mini dress with the phrase “summer staple” embedded into its DNA. If TikTok has inspired me to plan anything, it’s an aesthetic picnic spread — and this is exactly what I plan on wearing when said picnic plans actually happen.
A spaghetti strap sundress because in the year that won’t be named (*ahem* literally the one we are living in now), the impossible has happened: we’ve gotten sick of leggings. This simple number provides all the comfort from our once beloved staple but looks far more put-together.
An off-shoulder maxi that had me humming the intro of The Lovin’ Spoonful’s “Do You Believe In Magic?” as soon as I laid my peepers on it. That smocking! The mid-thigh slit! I officially believe in the existence of sorcery.
A silky slip dress I have three found-in-the-dictionary words for: humana humana humana. This stunner is *the* perfect item to throw on when you’re in the mood to feel extra dressy, which is exactly how I want to feel following a year of living in sweats.
A mini dress with a tried-and-true wrap silhouette, which means you’ll be able to customize the waistline for that perfectly tailored ~like a glove~ fit. We love clothes that feel like they were made just for us, amirite?
A high-neck bodycon dress available in neutral colors that are perfect for daily wear, plus you can choose between three sleeve options: long, cap, or sleeveless. The latter is wonderful if you’re feeling ready to let it all ~air out~.
A bow-back, puff sleeve baby doll dress with an appropriate silhouette name because it’s absolutely about to become the precious newborn of my wardrobe. I would 10/10 swaddle this beauty and hold it close to my bosom.
A tie-front tee dress made from 100% cotton, baby! This warm weather staple is the epitome of thoughtful design: the drawstring waist allows for a customizable silhouette, the sleeves can be cuffed to your preference, and the side slit means you won’t feel constricted by the midi length.
A ruffled shift dress ~technically~ intended for wearing off-the-shoulder, but some reviewers claim it can even function as a tube style. Things we love? Clothes that feel like multiple outfit options in one.
A trumpet sleeve swing dress I have every intention of wearing at least four days a week for the next few months. Perfect as a swimsuit coverup or sported on its own, this breezy number is the definition of cozy *and* cute.
A cami maxi featuring tie straps so you can adjust the fit of this snazzy ensemble to your liking. Designed with a fitted top and tiered bottom, prepare to feel like a Pinterest fashion board embodied with every wear.
A pocketed jersey T-shirt dress purposely designed with a longer hemline, which means your undergarments won’t be on the brink of exposure with every sudden gust of wind.
A lace V-neck dress for anyone who has had a Pinterest board titled “Boho Wedding” for the past decade. This is stunning, lightweight, and screams mason jar drinking glasses (plus is also available in a ton of hues, which means you can just as easily wear this as a bride *or* a wedding guest).
A shift dress appropriate for literally every. single. thing. you have coming up in the next decade. From socially-distanced family gatherings to trips into the office, consider this reliable number the new holy grail of your wardrobe.
A V-neck sleeveless dress blissfully constructed with a longer hemline. This means that, unlike the traditional bodycon dresses hanging untouched in your closet, your ~assets~ won’t be on the brink of exposure with every step — no constant riding up and pulling down!
A V-neck slit dress raved about for genuinely living up to the ~maxi length~ description — if you’re 5’7 and above, reviews swear that this pretty number will actually skim past your ankles.
An off-shoulder maxi dress designed with the phrase wardrobe staple, the kind of number you can wear to weddings and birthday dinners *or* for a stroll along a beach boardwalk.
A sleeveless bone-colored bodycon you certainly won’t have a ~bone~ to pick with due to how downright versatile it is. Pair this with kicks for casual affairs, heels for fancy ones… heck, lounge in it! The knit material means it’s cozy enough.
A dotted wrap dress about to become your new wearable BFF. You: “Wardrobe, please meet the newest member of our family…I’ll be wearing this on every single date night from now on.”
A mini deep-V dress featuring florals and pastel colors to remind us that it’s still summer for another month. It features an open back which means you’ll probably want to go sans underwire.
A 100% cotton mini dubbed the Tulum dress which is sure as HECK where I intend on wearing it when it’s safe to book basic economy once more.
A pleated midi dress that can truly fall anywhere in the fancy-to-casual spectrum depending on the accessories you decide to fish out of your closet. Pair it with sneaks for date night, heels for that small wedding ceremony, tomayto, tomahto, you’ll look fabulous.
A tortoiseshell button V-neck number guaranteed to make you feel ~trendier than thou~ on your stroll to the corner deli. Available in neutral colors and fun patterns alike, quickly throw this on to make it seem as if you didn’t snooze through your alarm this morning.
A bodycon pencil dress that looks so. damn. chic. And while the importance of owning the perfect LBD is no secret, it’s likely you’ve had the same one for…decades (#guilty). I believe it’s time we both level up.
A flare dress equipped with pockets which means it’s a winner right off the bat. Throw in a no-frills style and adjustable straps for a customized fit and ding ding ding! We’ve got ourselves a winner.
A surplice dress available in solid colors and a snazzy leopard print, the latter of which I personally intend on purchasing in preparation for my eventual Disney vacay (inspired by the below reviewer).
A midi tea dress emblazoned with smooches which I’m really into following this awful, terrible, no good start to the decade. “L is for the way you look at me.” —me to that criss-cross back.
A stretchy crewneck mini for a summer- and fall-approved extension of your favorite tee (although you can wear it any season with the right layers, tbh). Raise your hand if you’re ready to ditch the WFH joggers and give your shins a chance to breathe.
An off-shoulder tiered maxi dress that’ll have you in ~tiers~ as soon as you tear open the shipping bag. I’m pretty sure this justifies Shakespeare’s annoying love-at-first-sight trope.
A V-neck maxi dress for an easy, breezy, ~doesn’t require pants~ outfit you’ll want to slip on for any and every occasion. This is comfy enough to lounge in, stylish enough to ‘gram in, so cue the Hannah Montana soundtrack because ’tis the best of both worlds.
A chiffon mini I bet you’re already envisioning for your next outdoor barbecue-party-of-one. That’s right, ~dress~ up for yourself. But maybe take a mirror picture. For Instagram. Just in case.
