Dresses can be a versatile MVP in your closet. Throw one on with a pair of strappy sandals and you’ve got a perfect summer outfit. Come fall, layer on a leather or denim jacket and pair it all with tights and a skinny belt and you’ve got a pulled-together look.

A comfy T-shirt, but make it a dress! This Molerani Women’s Casual Plain T-Shirt is loose-fitting and would sync up nicely with a pair of tennis shoes for a laid-back weekend look. To add interest, try knotting it at the hem. The dress comes in several solid colors (army green; blue; dark green; mauve; navy; purple-grey; royal blue) as well as floral and mosaic prints.
Know before you order: The floral printed dresses run smaller than the solid colored dresses.
This maxi dress has an unexpected detail — pockets! With short sleeves and an empire waist, the Viishow Women’s Maxi Dress comes in several colors and patterns. Solid colors include purple grey, wine red, turquoise, army green, black, dark green, navy blue, royal blue, grey and white. The dress also comes in various mosaic and floral patterns.
Know before you order: The white dress is somewhat see-through, so you may need a slip.
Florals, stripes, polka dots: This Angashion summer dress comes in a variety of adorable patterns. For a classic style perfect for a Labor Day barbecue, opt for the dress in a solid red or blue color. But if you want to go a trendier route, it comes in fun prints like palm leaves or pineapples.
