    32 Comfortable Pieces Of Clothing That Look Expensive, But They're Not

    You'll feel like a baddie on a budget in these.

    Unless otherwise specified, all sizes in this post are listed in women’s.

    1. crewneck sweater many reviewers say eerily resembles one from Free People, but for a fraction of the price. Add that to the fact that it's soft and oversized, and you've got yourself an A+ option. Seriously, you may just want to add a couple of colors to your cart now so you can have them in rotation in your wardrobe.

    Promising review: "I love this! The material is thick and stretchy. It feels a lot more expensive than what it is (great FP dupe). It’s so comfy and cute. Definitely oversized already. I usually wear a small or medium in tops. I ordered the medium to ensure it’s oversized enough, and I'm happy with the way it fits." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $38.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and in 32 colors and styles). 

    2. A sheer lace bodysuit perfect for that V-day date you've got planned, or just a night out with your friends! No matter what you've got coming up, this top (paired with your favorite pair of jeans) will make you feel like a million bucks.

    Some reviewers say it runs small, so order ones size up for a comfortable fit.

    Promising review: "This is a beautiful bodysuit. I got lots of compliments on it. It's comfortable and very sexy. The open back was a fun addition to the bodysuit, and I did not have to wear a bra. I highly recommend purchasing this!" —Jill V.

    Get it from Lulus for $34 (available in sizes XS–XL and in three colors). 

    3. A faux-leather wrap midi skirt you can wear when you need a little boost of confidence. This number will put a ~wrap~ on any self-doubt because when you wear this, the world better watch out.

    Promising review: "This is a cute and comfortable two-piece set. The fit was as expected, and these pieces could easily be worn for travel or just lounging around the house. They washed up nicely, but I wouldn't recommend putting them in the dryer due to possible shrinkage." —H. Brien

    7. A strapless mesh bustier — people will probably be shocked when you tell them you scored it on Amazon, because it looks so much more expensive than its price tag. This + your favorite faux-leather jacket = the perfect outfit to wear during your night out with friends.

    Promising reviews: "I purchased this corset after watching a TikTok of another girl talking about how great it is. It did not disappoint! It fits nicely, and I got lots of compliments on it! Someone else pointed out to me that the fabric looks expensive and just like another bustier for over twice the price." —Elizabeth

    "A great dressy top for any occasion! I loved the feel of the top — silky inside and mesh corset externally. There was a good stretch that I kinda wished I got a smaller size, but I didn’t want to risk it being too tight and shorter length. It was surprisingly very comfortable and an attention grabber!" —Victoria

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes 00–20 and in 20 styles). 

    8. A rib-knit midi polo dress you can grab on those days when you have somewhere to be that requires you to look nice. You'll feel super professional in this dress while still being as comfortable as you are when you wear your fave pair of leggings.

    Reviewers do say it runs small, so size up.

    Promising review: "This blouse is so elegant! It fits well, but it runs a bit small/tight so ordering up the would ideal. It’s also versatile, and the material is extremely soft. It has little stretch too but again. I would recommend it. The color is so nice too. I used it for a photo shoot, and it just popped!" —Gesselle Walters 

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and in 24 colors)

    The brand does say that this jacket runs small, so order one size up. 

    Promising review: "It fits slightly large, but I'm ok with the bit of extra room because this is pretty thin, so sweaters will layer nicely under it. It looks far more expensive than it is. I would recommend ordering your true size if you want it more fitted or going one size up if you prefer something a little looser. Not going to keep you warm through the winter, but it's perfect for a 60-degree day." —Lauren R.

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and 16 colors) and a similar style also from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in sizes 16–24 plus and in seven colors).

    14. An asymmetrical ruched skirt you'll want to wear on your next date night. (And the date night after that.) It's made with a light and silky fabric that can pair with SO many different tops you already own.

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99+ (available in sizes XS–4X and 20 colors).

    15. A ruffle off-the-shoulder crop top capable of making basically anyone swoon. It's such a show-stopper that it will have strangers coming up to you to tell you how much they love it. You frugal fashionista, you.
