The first item that I got from Tobi was their Queen Bee two-piece set, sold in black, cream, and olive.

This two-piece set features a sleeveless crop top with a golden back zipper, paired with high-waisted trouser pants. Both pieces are constructed from a super soft, high-quality polyester fabric, with a fit that's loose enough for comfort and style, yet tapered to accent your figure.

I got this set in size XS; it's also offered in sizes S, M, and L. The top fits wonderfully, and the exposed back zipper gives a sleek, bold touch to the casual cropped silhouette. Since I'm pretty short, I found the trousers to be a bit too long on me, fitting like regular pants rather than ankle pants. They're also a bit too big overall, though they fit perfectly on my waist. These trousers feature a sturdy hook-and-bar closure and hidden zipper, paired with large front pockets that add functionality to this staple piece.

This Queen Bee set is one of Tobi's many items listed under its jumpsuits category. Now, I'm typically not one to wear a ton of jumpsuits, trousers, or other clothing of the sort, but I must say that I'm very impressed with both the quality and fit of this two-piece top and pants set!

If you're looking for a sleek, minimalistic two-piece set that combines bold, badass flair with toned-down business vibes for a look you can wear from sunrise to sundown, Tobi's Queen Bee set is a no-brainer! The material is unbelievably comfortable, and, while the pants are a bit too baggy and long for me, I love the confidence that this outfit gives me, along with the flattering, leg-lengthening effect of the cropped tank and high-waisted trousers.

Next up is a completely different style: the ultra-feminine, spring/summer-ready Dreamin' of Sunshine floral dress.

Tobi has tons of amazing dresses, ranging from sexy club dresses to casual T-shirt dresses and everything in between. Their Dreamin' of Sunshine dress instantly caught my eye with its beautiful colors and dreamy sheer fabric, making it a unique, standout piece that takes floral dresses to a whole new level.

This spaghetti-strap skater dress features a pale pastel blue organza overlay with a light purple rose print, layered over a white flared dress. With adjustable straps, padded bust, a hidden back zipper, and sheer paneling at the waist, this dress is made for warm weather.

The colors of this dress are 100% as gorgeous in person as online, though the organza overlay was a bit wrinkled from delivery, and the nature of the fabric makes it rather stiff, so the dress isn't quite as flowy as I'd hoped. I got this dress in size S, and although it's a bit loose on me, the flared skirt makes it an incredibly flattering piece.

I'm a huge fan of floral dresses, and while I already have a ton of them in all sorts of floral prints and color combinations, Tobi's Dreamin' of Sunshine is undoubtedly a distinctive, unique addition to my collection! The elegant, feminine vibe of organza elevates this dress above your average floral sundress, making it a piece that you can even wear for special occasions. Here, I paired the dress with a bohemian-style dreamcatcher necklace, white spiked platform booties (reviewed here), and a white tassel-trim kimono (reviewed here) for a girly spring/summer look.

Last up is an edgier outfit, featuring the Kailee lace-up shirt dress from Tobi, sold in black, mauve, and olive.

Lace-up accents are all the rage this year, and the Kailee dress puts an interesting twist on this trend, sporting lattice-style waist cutouts on a long sleeve button-down shirt dress. The fabric is a comfortable, soft rayon, with a good amount of stretch and the perfect thickness for autumn or spring.

Unfortunately, this dress was missing a button when I received it, which is a shame because otherwise I'm completely obsessed with it. I got it in XS and it fits true to size, and the flowy material allows for comfort and easy movement.

The Kailee shirt dress is really an amazing combination of comfort and style, taking the casual silhouette of a button-down tunic and spicing it up with sexy waist cutouts.

Here, I paired the black version with black studded lace-up platform boots (reviewed here) for an edgy look with grunge vibes, but the style of the dress lends itself to a ton of pairing options, whether you style it with lace-up sandals and a wide-brim hat, a choker and chunky shoes, sheer tights and over-the-knee boots, or whatever else you can imagine!
