Every woman needs a comfy dress they can throw on at a moment’s notice. If you’ve got an event where you aren’t entirely sure what level of fancy garb people will be wearing, you should have an adaptable dress. This dress can work in multiple settings, from work to a wedding. We rounded up three of the best dresses that can be altered to look more elegant or casual with a statement necklace, a pair of stylish mules or headband. But above all, the dress should be comfortable. As much as we love our tight high-waisted skirts, we can start to feel it digging into your ribs and torso after a long day.

Among our figure-flattering picks are two maxi dresses and one above-the-knee dress. One of our maxi dresses is plus size. Two of our picks are high-waisted dresses while the other option is a high-waisted tunic that is draped loose. These dresses are made out of comfy, lightweight fabrics to ensure that you can wear them all day (and night) long without feeling constrained. Between our picks, there are easily more than 50 styles, colors and patterns to choose from. That’s a whole lot of dresses to browse, so you better get started. You’ll be able to find the dress you’ve been looking for.

STYLECASTER’s mantra is ‘Style To The People’— and our mission is to be an accessible, inclusive, ahead-of-the-trend destination for millennial and Gen Z women who want to live with style and substance. Our fashion, beauty and lifestyle coverage is equal parts informative and inspiring, and at once aspirational yet attainable.

This tunic dress from Amoretu has a super chill vibe. It’s loose, flowing and comfy. The slightly puffy long sleeves adds more volume to the dress and lets you look a little slouchy—but in a good way. This dress is great for everyday wear, and it can be dressed up with accessories for date night. You can wear this dress throughout the year by simply adding layers under and over it, like tights, jackets and sweaters. It’s available in many colors and different sleeve-lengths.
