I Tried On the 9 Top-Rated Dresses From Amazon—5 You Need in Your Cart

If there’s one thing in your closet that you can never have too many of, it’s dresses. You could honestly squeeze hundreds into even a small space because of how compressible they are. And of course, the styling opportunities are endless. Just by adding the right accessories and maybe a white button-down or cardigan, you can take your look to a whole new level. So naturally, around this time of year, I’m stocking up on them, and lately, my cart has been full at every single retailer. 

I’m the kind of girl who loves to feel brand-new every time she gets dressed, so I’m thinking the more, the merrier when building out this summer’s dress collection, which is what led me to these Amazon finds. A good price point always seals the deal for me when I’m debating which items to choose for my collection, and luckily, the dresses I tried came in at under $40. Keep scrolling to shop them all.

Sunny yellow, this dress immediately caught my eye as I scrolled through Amazon's best sellers. The pretty print is sure to brighten up my life any day I wear it. It was an easy add to cart.


I'm loving maxi styles right now, and this one lands at the perfect length.

I've been seeing this dress on the list of Amazon best sellers for a few years in a row now, so I had to finally give it a try. This is truly a wear-everywhere dress. It can be styled for both formal and casual affairs with just a simple accessory swap.


It comes in so many colors, but neutrals are speaking to me right now. It's impossible not to look tan when you're wearing it.

It's all in the details for me. The puffed sleeve and tiered skirt add a special element to this dress that can't be ignored. Even the buttons feel special, so I was glad I tried it on.


Such an easy throw-on-and-go number. Any time you're stuck wondering what you should wear, you can lean on this.

This dress blew me away with how flattering it is. It fits at the bust just right with a flared skirt that accentuates the waistline. Gingham isn't going anywhere, so you can count on this dress.

You'll easily make a statement in this beautiful, daring-red dress. It's the perfect shade of the bold colorway. My only regret is that I should've sized down. I would suggest trying out a smaller size in this one.


In case you didn't notice, it has pockets.
