Spring is officially here — even though it may not feel like it just yet. After a chilly winter that I spent predominantly in loungewear, I'm feeling ready to add some cute, warmer weather items to my closet. Thankfully, I've already found a wardrobe staple to carry me through the upcoming sunny season: the Longyuan Casual Dress, which has been described by some reviewers as the "perfect" dress.

With a high neckline and flattering cinched elastic waist, the dress has quickly become a favorite for Amazon users for both casual outings and special occasions — and after trying it myself, it wasn't hard to see why.

Longyuan Women's Summer Dress

It's made from a mix of rayon and spandex, so it's super soft and stretchy, which is key, since I've become pretty used to the comfort of joggers over the last two years. Like many reviewers, I also appreciate the cut, which falls just above the knee. It doesn't feel too short or revealing, so I can even wear it into the office (which is a major bonus, as my work wardrobe is seriously lacking at the moment).

It comes in 41 color and pattern options, including basic neutrals and florals. (For spring? Groundbreaking, we know.) Because I tend to stick to a pretty neutral color palette, I went with the dark green shade, and I love how easy it is to style. Though I'm already thinking about adding the black one to my cart, too.

One thing to note: If you're eyeing the white or floral white options, the brand says that they can be slightly see-through, so you may have to pair yours with nude undergarments. Better yet, consider wearing it as a beach or pool cover-up!

It's clear that shoppers can't get enough of the casual dresses Amazon has available right now. The retailer has even more customer-loved styles that can easily take you from spring into summer.

While I love the cute, comfortable fit, there's no question that my absolute favorite aspect of the dress is the pockets. They're big enough to hold my essentials, like my phone or keys. And while some dresses with pockets can make your hips look larger than they actually are, I don't run into that issue here. The pockets on this one lay flat when they're empty and don't look bulky.

This style has more than 16,000 five-star ratings on Amazon and comes in sizes x-small to xx-large. The brand also has a handy size chart to reference if you're unsure which will fit you best.

"I just got this in the mail not even an hour ago and haven't taken it off," wrote one verified reviewer. " ... I'm buying more so that I can wear one every day. I love how soft and comfortable the fabric is [and] the cut is so flattering. It covers my postpartum belly really well and has pockets!"

I think one other shopper summed it up perfectly in this review: "It’s the softest, coolest material and officially is the comfiest dress I own."

The Longyuan dress is perfect for everyday wear and I love how easy it is to pair with other items in my closet, from a shacket and loafers to a denim jacket and sneakers. While I have yet to wear it out for a fancier occasion, I'm looking forward to dressing it up with the right shoes and accessories.
