The perfect summer dress is three things: comfortable, flattering and above all, cute. While all three factors are entirely subjective, Amazon shoppers believe they’ve found the one dress to rule them all.

The Amazon Essentials Women's Sleeveless Crossover Dress is simple but anything but basic. The stretchy style is made of a mix of rayon and elastane, and comes in eight versatile shades, ranging from chic black to a flattering coral and a ditsy floral print that’s basically made for garden parties.

The real magic of the knee-length frock lies in the details. A stylish crossover front does more than just add panache; rather it nips in right at the smallest point of your waist, giving you the illusion of an hourglass figure. Gentle pleats add a feminine flourish to the otherwise minimal design, and ensure the style looks great at any angle.

Versatile

“This dress can be casual or elegant, depending on whether you dress it up or down,” a stylish shopper shares. “I love the slimming fit. The pockets are wonderful as they don’t add any bulk to the dress. I would feel comfortable wearing this dress to a wedding or to the beach. I’m very pleased with it.”

“Absolutely love this cute versatile dress,” another shopper adds. “The dress has a very subtle A-line silhouette that tapers at the waist and slightly bells out which is also very flattering. There were even pockets! This dress can easily be dressed up with some heels and dangly earrings or dressed casually by adding a denim jacket and some sandals.”

Flowy

This reviewer praised the style’s flowy silhouette:

“Great dress with nice swingy skirt,” a happy shopper raves. “Perfect for summer and can also layer with a denim jacket for fall. Super comfy and can work in almost any informal setting.”

Breathable

“Smooth, comfortable and breathable fabric,” says a fan. “Pretty and simple dress. Flattering and resists wrinkling. Very suitable for travel. Neckline is not overly low.”

The $25 style hits right at the knee for most shoppers, plus the modest V-neckline lends a hint of a flirty vibe to the overall look. No wonder it’s a favorite among shoppers — we want one in every color!
