The next items Constantino highlights are stretchy dresses, starting with a cutout dress that she found in pink and green. "That is so cute for summertime," she says.

The "long body con dresses" are also a win, but what Constantino gets super excited about is a long, spaghetti strap dress with a slit. "Are you kidding me? Nobody would ever know that's from Five Below," she says.

Fellow TikToker @iamqunay2, who shares budget style tips, added that the dresses are like "Skims dupes."
