Amazon Fashion Finds | April

Happy Friday, friends, and cheers to the weekend!! No surprise, but we’ve got a full weekend of volleyball ahead. In between, I’m hoping to get my house back in order… it’s been one of those weeks where it all got away from me! The clutter and mess makes me stressed, do you feel that way, too?

Today I’ve got one of your favorite monthly series, my Amazon Fashion Finds! I started these Fashion Finds almost three years ago, and they quickly became reader faves. It takes some intense digging to find the good stuff, but I love the challenge of discovering such gems! And remember, I’d never share anything with you that I wouldn’t wear myself, or recommend to my best friend!

This batch is dangerously good, as evidenced by how many pieces I’m keeping! It’s a mix of spring and full-blown summer, and every single item is completely adorable!

Sizing info: I’m 5’4″ 125-ish pounds, and usually wear an XS and 26 jeans. My fit tips and sizing recommendations are included with each description. 

 

Special Occasion Dresses //

Your biggest request has overwhelmingly been for special occasion dresses… weddings, showers, graduations, etc., and I found some absolute winners! Starting with this darling fit and flare dress, with box pleats and chest darts for a feminine and flattering fit. It’s a thick cotton material with a touch of stretch for a comfy fit across the chest. It comes in a slew of colors and patterns and pairs with wedges, heels, and flat sandals.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a small, but would prefer my usual XS because of the stretch. So it’s TTS.


Pleated Butterfly Dress (Color: Butterfly – without belt) | Wedges | Double Strand Necklace | Gold Bead Bracelets

 

A step up in the dressy department, this dress is as comfy as it is chic! The top is a thick and stretchy knit with a flattering elbow sleeve length and a flowy skirt. The pleats are well-made and give the dress great movement. You’d never know it’s so affordable!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a small, but my usual size would work, too.


Geometric Print Dress (Color: Bk-white Stripe) | Ankle Strap Block Heel Sandals | Gold Bead Bracelets

 

This dress is one I keep on stand-by in my closet! I’ve worn it to weddings, cocktail events, and even a holiday work party. It’s incredibly flattering on, with a stretchy, figure-slimming fit. The lace overlay is really well done and gives the dress a classic but subtly sexy look. It comes in several colors, and is actually very comfortable on.

Fit Tip: I’m in a small, and prefer the size up in body-con styles.


Fitted Lace Dress (Color: A-Black) | Ankle Strap Block Heel Sandals | Gold Bead Bracelets

 

Day Dresses //

Now let’s chat day dresses… those easy to wear, throw on and go, one and done outfits! Starting with this wrap dress I’ve actually shared before, but I couldn’t resist this new color way. It’s smooth and soft, with a true wrap style for a custom fit. The flutter sleeves are flattering on the upper arm, and the length is perfect for wedges or flats.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a small.


Faux Wrap Dress (Color: Blue) | Miller Sandals | Double Strand Necklace | Gold Bead Bracelets

 

I live in long dresses during the warmer months, and this one is so cute and comfortable. I love the washed fabric and adjustable straps, and the length is perfect for my height.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS


Tiered Midi Dress | Strappy Sandals | Double Strand Necklace | Gold Bead Bracelets

 

How pretty is this pattern?! The colors, too! It feels a bit like a washed linen, perfect gauzy feel for summer. The straps are adjustable and the top is double-lined for good coverage. I’d wear it now with a jean jacket.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS


Floral Maxi Dress (Color: 10-multi-colored) | Strappy Sandals | Double Strand Necklace | Gold Bead Bracelets

 

Based on the website photos, I wasn’t expecting to love this dress for me… but I was wrong! The model must be 6-feet tall because it looks like a shirt on her, but very clearly a knee-length dress on me, ha! It’s a flirty, tiered style that’s youthful without being juvenile. The flutter sleeve is a fun touch, and the material moves well.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a small


Tiered Babydoll Dress (color: black) | Miller Sandals | Gold Bead Bracelets

 

This dress is all kinds of sassy, with a super-low front and open back, but surprisingly, I don’t feel too exposed!? The sleeves and length help you feel more covered, and it feels incredible on. You definitely need sticky covers for the ladies though, as most bras would show in the v-neck. You could dress this up more with wedges, or even wear it as a glam swim coverup!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a small, but would prefer my usual XS, so it’s TTS


Tiered V-Neck Dress (Color: A-green) | Miller Sandals | Double Strand Necklace | Gold Bead Bracelets

 

Spring Pants //

I tried a slew of new pant options, and these were by far the cutest. Made of a linen blend, they have a comfortable wide leg, and a flattering wrap-tie at the waist. The color goes with everything, and they look so effortless. The tee is a great classic fit, with lots of stretch and thick for no show-through. It comes in a 2-pack for a great price!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a 4/6 in the pants and small tee.


Wide Leg Tie Waist Pants (Color: Beige) | Crewneck Tee | Strappy Sandals | Double Strand Necklace | Gold Bead Bracelets

 

Spring Tops //

Next up, I know y’all have a thing for spring and summer tops, and I have some fun options for you! This one-shoulder is a linen-blend, in the cutest blue and white stripe with ruffle sleeve. It has a slightly boxy fit that’s perfect for wearing out, or tucking in a skirt. It has a tie on one shoulder, but you could easily cut it off if it feels like too much for you.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a small


One-Shoulder Ruffle Blouse (Color: Baby Blue) | White Jeans | Strappy Sandals | Double Strand Necklace | Gold Bead Bracelets

 

This combo is one of my faves of the haul… the top is just so fun and easy! I love the longer length to cover the bum, and flutter sleeves and hem make it flirty and forgiving. It comes in several color combos, but this brown is great for spring and summer. So fresh with white denim, don’t you think?

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a small, but my usual XS would work, so TTS


Peplum Blouse (Color: 2111 Brown) | White Jeans | Strappy Sandals | Gold Bead Bracelets

 

I love yellow on brunettes, but it’s a rare find when I find the right shade for me, too! This floral top is so cute, without being overly sweet. I love the ruffle neck and puff sleeves. It comes in a great blue, too.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a small. Definitely size up for more upper arm room.


Ruffle Neck Blouse (Color: Multicolored#3) | White Jeans | Strappy Sandals | Gold Bead Bracelets

 

Okay, I’ll admit it took me a minute to figure out how to get in this top, but the fun silhouette was worth it! The material is a crisp poly with a touch of stretch. It has a high peplum waist, one shoulder, and a fun wrap-tie around the back.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a small.


Asymmetrical Peplum Blouse (Color: Blue) | White Jeans | Strappy Sandals | Double Strand Necklace | Gold Bead Bracelets

 

Graphic Tees //

Summer is around the corner, so that means graphic tee season! Amazon always has fun options, and I love their soft fabrics and loose fit.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a small


Graphic Tee (Color: Green A) | White Jeans | Strappy Sandals | Double Strand Necklace | Gold Bead Bracelets

 

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a small.


Graphic Tee | Jean Shorts | Miller Sandals | Double Strand Necklace | Gold Bead Bracelets

 

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a medium


Graphic Tee (Color: Light Grey) | Denim Shorts | Slide Sandals | Gold Bead Bracelets

 

Basic Tees //

I also found some great basic tees, perfect for throwing on with shorts and jeans. I love the oversized fit of this long sleeve v-neck, in a super-soft fabric. It has a nice longer length, too.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a small.


Long Sleeve V-Neck Tee (Color: 01-White) | Denim Shorts | Slide Sandals | Double Strand Necklace | Gold Bead Bracelets

 

I love a classic henley, and this one is the softest waffle knit with an oversized fit. The color is a great natural for white or traditional denim.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a small, but it’s relaxed already, so no need to size up.


Henley Tee (Color: 03 Light Apricot) | Denim Shorts | Slide Sandals | Double Strand Necklace | Gold Bead Bracelets

 

You’ve seen this crewneck before… but I couldn’t resist my favorite $10 pullover in white for the season! I sized up two for a really loose fit, and will wear it non-stop this season.

Fit Tip: I sized up to a medium


Long Sleeve Crewneck Pullover | Jean Shorts | Slide Sandals | Gold Bead Bracelets

 

Loungewear //

This shorts set was my favorite loungewear/pajamas of the bunch… nice and soft with a ribbed texture. The pull-on shorts are elastic with a loose leg opening.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a small


Short Pajama Set | Double Strand Necklace

 

Swimsuits & Coverups //

Swimsuits is another area where Amazon really shines! I’ve actually found so many great styles, I think I’ll do a dedicated swim and coverup post… what do you think? This one-piece might give you questionable tan lines, but it’s beyond flattering on! The high waist and neckline draws the eye up, elongating and slimming the legs. It has full cup support and bum coverage, and I feel completely locked and loaded.

Fit Tip: I always size up in swim, and I’m in a 4/6. Coverup shirt is a small.


Y-Neck One Piece Swim Suit (Color: Bluebird Blue) | Button Cover-Up | Gold Bead Bracelets

 

The lighting is off in this photo, but the color of the suit is pretty accurate. I love the tropical print and the coral, pink, and teal are so fun. It has good support and coverage, with the cutest criss-cross back.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a small.


Palm Print One Piece Swim Suit | Button Cover-Up | Double Strand Necklace | Gold Bead Bracelets

 

I love the ruffle trim and v-neck of this cute suit, but the back is a little low for my comfort zone. It’s a sturdy lycra material with lots of hold and control, with support and pads through the chest. If you love a ruffled suit, I adore this one HERE.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a 2/4, but need to size up one more for more torso length.


Ruffle One Piece Swim Suit | Button Cover-Up | Double Strand Necklace | Gold Bead Bracelets

 

As for cover-ups, I love the chicness and ease of this oversized shirt! It’s silky soft and so lightweight, and looks great thrown over any style suit. I rolled the sleeves above my elbow, but you can wear them long, too.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a small.


One Piece Swim Suit (XS) | Button Cover-Up | Double Strand Necklace | Gold Bead Bracelets

 

Sandals //

I have two fun sandal options for you… one is a long-time fave of mine (as evidenced by the wear!), and the others were one of my best finds of last year, and now back in stock!! The slides are comfy and easy, and so cute with shorts and jeans.

The strappy Grecian sandals are the perfect nude, so flattering on, and adorable with long skirts and dresses.

Fit Tip: I size up half in slides, and the strappy ones are TTS

    Great finds! Was wondering if you could maybe comment on some of the Amazon things you keep from your hauls and how they hold up. I’ve recently cut back on Amazon fashion because I get disappointed in so many things after a few wears or a few washes. Amazon is amazing for price and selection but I’ve found myself just going back to some of my more consistent retailers.

    I love that first dress on you – they all look good but that is my fave!
    Have you found a good t-shirt, one with longer (but still short) sleeves? So many look like cap sleeves – not always a flattering look?

    Thanks!!!!

      Hi Jane! The 2-pack of crewneck tees that I featured in this post should fit that bill! They’re short sleeve but it’s substantial. xo, C
