A polka dot number you can throw on quickly on a Saturday morning when you told your friends you’d meet them for brunch at 12, but you accidentally slept till 11:30. Whoops!
A ruffle bodycon with an off-the-shoulder detail to make you feel oh-so confident.
A bodycon midi that’s anything but basic. Throw this on with some heels or sneakers and a jean jacket, and you’ll feel so put together.
A floral swing dress designed to make you feel like a million bucks…even though it only costs as much as two fancy cocktails.
A tie-front dress – you could tell your friend where you got it when she asks, or you could simply say, “Sorry, my hands are ~tied~”.
An off-the-shoulder maxi designed to make you feel like you’re walking a runway when you’re really just walking down the street. Just imagine it blowing in the breeze as you strut, not walk.
A simple cocktail dress you’ll wear for years because it truly will not go out of style.
A maxi dress with pockets (!!) because there really isn’t a better feature for dress than pockets. Where else am I supposed to store my phone, my lip balm, and the random receipts I should probably just throw away?!?
A v-neck tie one people will probably think you got from some fancy boutique.
A hoodie dress so comfortable, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it.
A simple dress you can wear off-the-shoulder or not, because options are great.
A floral embroidered cocktail dress so beautiful, you’ll want to be invited to more weddings and formal events so you can wear it again. (You say “outfit repeater” like it’s a bad thing…)
A patterned midi you’ll force your friend to take your picture in immediately because this deserves a prominent place in your Insta grid.
A chiffon tunic you can wear with or without a belt, so that’s basically two dresses in one.
A color-block sheath dress – you’ll feel like a true professional and a badass when you wear it. Nobody will hold you back in this.
A button-up maxi to wear when it’s just too hot to think about putting on real clothes. Yes, technically this dress is “real clothes,” but you know what I mean.
A belted pencil dress that looks great on its own in the summer and then again in the fall with a sweater and boots.
A vintage style that’ll make you feel like you’re in an episode of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Midge would be so proud.
A halter mini just begging you to take it on a tropical vacation—or a local beach or pool if a tropical vacay just isn’t in your budget right now.
A t-shirt dress I believe everyone should have in their closet because it’s simple, cute, and practical.
A halter that looks great and costs under $10. Wait, what? Excuse me, I need to go add this to my cart immediately.
A halter mini dress perfect for that festival you’ve been counting down the days until.
A lace fit and flare people will love so much – don’t be surprised if you’re asked where you got it about 10 times when you wear it.
A tie-dye maxi because tie-dye is back in a big way, and THIS is how you rock it.
A polka-dot midi dress you’ll love so much, you might as well buy a couple so you can wear ’em more often.
A high-low dress you can throw on with sandals so you can be cute yet comfy during that summer BBQ.
A color block tunic you’ll wear all the time – you won’t care if people start to notice, because it just looks *that good* on.
A slit dress that’ll really ~maxi-mize~ your style without your having to try super hard.
A tulle gown you’ll feel like Cinderella in, without, you know, the whole “having to be home by midnight” thing. That curfew is a drag.
An off-the-shoulder maxi dress that’ll have you blasting Lizzo and saying, “No, I’m not a snack at all. Look, baby, I’m the whole damn meal”.
A striped pencil dress appropriate for a corporate environment, especially in the summer when it’s 90 degrees outside but approximately -20 in the office.
And a bell-sleeve dress to ~shift~ you idea about wearing anything other than dresses. They’re so great, who needs pants?
Me trying to fit all the dresses from this post in my closet:
