If you ask us, you can never have enough versatile, comfortable dresses in your closet. Not only is this long, breezy dress affordable, it can be easily dressed up or down, which definitely earns it a top slot in your summer wardrobe rotation.

This popular maxi dress features a stretchy, soft fabric that makes it oh-so-easy to wear. It has pockets (yes, pockets!) and slits on each side, which add both practical and stylish design elements to the dress.

Whether you’re taking the kids to the park or going out for date night — this dress is a great pick, considering how simply it can be dressed up or down. 

It’s available on Amazon and the price ranges from $18.99 to $34.99, depending on the size and color options you choose. It comes in sizes X-Small to XX-Large and is available in both solid colors and bold prints. There’s everything from neutrals to floral patterns, so you’re bound to find an option (or two!) to suit your style. 

You can’t go wrong with a classic black dress:


There are also versatile neutrals in the mix, such as this light gray option:


Or you can add a fun pop of color to your wardrobe when you choose something bold, like this Nile Blue color:


Pretty floral prints like this one could spice up your closet, too:


There’s also a sleeveless, cami-style version for $18.99 that comes in a range of colors, too, if you aren’t digging the sleeves.


The dress has been highly reviewed by over 4,000 customers on Amazon, and according to the reviews, this dress has a flowy fit and works well on many shapes and sizes.

“I’m 5’ 2” & 135 lbs & to be honest I wear different sizes ranging from XS to Medium depending on the store,” wrote one reviewer. “I got the Extra Small because of my height & because everyone said the dress was flowy. It fit perfectly! The bottom hovers the ground with sandals. It’s thick enough so you cannot see your bra through it but thin enough to wear on a hot day.”

Another happy customer pointed out that this works well as a casual cover-up for a cruise (and would also be great at the beach or pool!).

“I was looking for a dress I could wear over a bathing suit when we port on the cruise. THIS DRESS IS PERFECT,” the reviewer wrote. “I will be ordering this dress in other colors.”

One Amazon review pointed out how this dress can be dressed up with the right accessories and also gave some pointers on how to achieve the perfect flowy fit:

“I wanted a looser look on me, like the model in the picture. So the XL gave me a little more loose look. It’s perfect for hot summer weather with some cute sandals AMD [sic] cute accessories,” the review read.

Those who were less satisfied with their purchase were mostly displeased by the way the pockets added extra bulk to the hip area.

“The pockets on this dress are poorly placed and super unflattering for women who have just a little extra fluff on those hips,” one customer wrote. “They are right on your hips and add just a little extra bulk making me look much more pear shaped than I am.”

What do you think? Will you be finding ways to wear this dress to barbecues, summer weddings and more this season?
