This article is part of spring fashion month, where we break down your must-have fashion pieces for the months ahead. From denim jackets to cozy sandals, we asked editors, influencers, and experts about their must-haves for spring and beyond.
We all know that in recent years, Amazon has grown into a somewhat surprising mecca for affordable fashion items as well as standout pieces that tend to go viral. Need proof? Check it out: unrivaled Amazonian coats, eye-catching and easy-to-wear nightdresses, and supremely comfortable loungewear—just to name a few.
Now, we’re calling it the next Amazon garment that’s sure to be a hit this spring: the MSBasic V-neck dress, which we tried on in our quest to test the best spring dresses from the big box retailer, rose to become our ( and readers) favorite new season dress standouts.
Honestly, there’s nothing easier and more flattering than this simple V-neck dress, which comes in many basic colors and fun patterns. The style accentuates all the right places, the material is soft and the length is great so you don’t have to worry about wearing any special underwear.
As far as silhouette goes, this dress is very flattering. It has a simple fit and flare that cinches at the waist without restricting it and has a wrap V neckline that flatters any bust size. The classic short sleeves and covered back mean any type of underwear or bra can be worn underneath, and you don’t have to worry about hiding the straps. The above-the-knee hem is perfect for spring weather without feeling too short.
The fabric is a blend of polyester and spandex that feels soft and stretchy—although we’d avoid tossing this fabric in the dryer; the label says hand wash only.
Whatever your personal style, you’ll find that MSBasic has something for you: The dress is available on Amazon in 39 colors and patterns, from small to XX-large (although not all options are available in all sizes); solid colors include blue colors, greens, and purples, and lots of pretty florals, polka dots, and even some tie-dye looks. Prices range from $26 to $32.
But perhaps the dress’s best attribute is its versatility: Wear it with a denim jacket and sneakers for an easy day of errands, or throw on some cute wedge sandals for a more elevated look. There are no frills or intricate details here—the MSBasic dress is the embodiment of “put it on and go,” and it’s sure to be just right no matter the occasion.
