    Promising review: "I love this shirt so much! It's super comfortable, excellent quality, and fits perfectly. More than I expected for the price. I have been looking for a shirt like this, but all were so expensive. I will buy more in other colors." —pearnet

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99 (available in sizes S–L and in 19 colors and sleeve lengths).

    2. A puff-sleeve plaid wrap dress you can wear on those days when you want to look super put together but spend no time actually putting together a look. This effortlessly stylish dress will be perfect to grab from now until spring rolls around.

    Target

    Promising review: "I ADORE this dress. I even purchased both colors! It looks so close to the Ganni seersucker wrap dress I wanted but that's sold out everywhere. The combo of the long skirt and the puff sleeves are so chic and eye-catching. And I adore Target for nearly always including (subtle but useful) pockets in their dresses. They understand the needs of the modern woman!!!!" —TK

    Get it from Target for $27.99 (available in sizes XS–4X and in two color combinations). 

    3. High-waisted palazzo pants reviewers say feel like pajamas — but look really nice, which is basically the best combo you can have when it comes to clothes. Plus, you can easily dress these pants up or down into whatever fits your daily vibe.

    Promising review: "These pants as so comfortable and flowy! I stepped outside of my usual skinny jean outfit to try this style — and I never want to take them off! They are great casual pants for work, and they can be dressed up for the evening with a fancy shirt and heels. They are as comfortable as pajamas, without looking like it. :)" —nash

    Get them from Amazon for $35.99 (available in sizes XS–3X and in 27 colors and patterns).

    4. A slip dress designed with ruching on the side so you can customize the length depending on where you're wearing it. And that, my friends, is what we call a versatile piece.

    Girl Next Door

    BTW — Girl Next Door is a Black woman-owned small biz!

    Get it from Girl Next Door for $60 (available in sizes S-L and in orange and brown).

    5. A denim tunic I am currently wearing as I write this post, so I can say for a fact that it goes with basically everything and is the extra layer you need for your outfit to feel so put together.

    Abby Kass / BuzzFeed, JC Penny

    Hello, my name is Abby, and I am obsessed with this denim shirt. *Hi Abby* Okay, now that we've established that fact, let me tell you how great this shirt is. I got it for Christmas, and I think it is one of the most versatile pieces in my closet. I've worn it countless times since I got it, but especially in the last few weeks as the season has started to change. I love how it's a little bit oversized, but not too much. I've worn it on its own with bike shorts, as a second layer over an exercise dress, with this cute fall set as pictured above, and so many other ways. It makes me feel super put together and stylish every time I put it on, which is why I think I wear it all the time. Overall, it's a 10/10, and I can't recommend it enough.

    Get it from JC Penny for $49.99+ (available in sizes S–XL, 1X–3X) or from Amazon for $49.99 (available in sizes XS–XXL).

    6. A bodycon ribbed jumpsuit giving me no choice but to sing "Body-ody-ody-ody-ody-ody-ody-ody" over and over again because it is that amazing.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This bodysuit is giving me bodyyyy! I love it! I wore it downtown and got so many compliments. The material is very comfortable and has a good amount of stretch!" —Ternesha Noelzinord

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99 (available in sizes S-L and in nine colors).

    7. A ruched sleeve sweatshirt you can totally wear when you're working from home and are tired of putting on the same ratty old sweatshirt day after day. Plus, you can also pair this with some jeans for when you need to head out to run a couple of mid-day errands (a WFH-perk).

    8. A leopard-print slip midi skirt to help ~maxi-mize~ your potential as the fashionista of your friend group. The group text is going to be blowing up with everyone asking where you got this skirt after you post that cute pic you took at the farmers' market on Saturday morning.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is by far one of my favorite purchases. It's an awesome skirt, and the price was unbelievable. I'm so happy I purchased this. It looks way more expensive than it is. I get tons of compliments every time I wear it. Buy it, you won’t be disappointed" —Jen Francis

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99 (available in sizes S–XL).

    10. A open-front blazer your closet really needs because it can take you from an interview to Sunday brunch with your friends and everything in between. And with 26 different color options, you may want to add a couple to your cart ASAP.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this blazer so much. I want one in every color. I am typically a size 16. I ordered an XXL to be on the safe side. It fits great. I think an XL would have fit good too. I wore it for the first time today and got so many compliments. The fabric has a little stretch but not too much that it will lose its shape." —Mommameeks

    Get it from Amazon for $28.67 (available in sizes 4–22 and 26 colors).

    11. A midi dress that looks just as good with a pair of white sneakers as it does with boots, which just means you'll have so many opportunities to wear it and show off just how fashionable you are.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Get it from Amazon for $38.99 (available in sizes XS–XXL and in 10 colors).

    13. A trench coat giving me such Parisian chic vibes. And you don't want to be known as the person who didn't get the classic trench, do you? (Yes, that was a Hills reference. I am STILL upset LC didn't choose Paris. Ugh.)

    Beginning Boutique

    BTW — Beginning Boutique is a small woman-owned business based in Brisbane, Australia that has a variety of more affordable fashion pieces.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this bodysuit! I got so many compliments and no one believed it was from Amazon! It runs true to size and the blue was absolutely STUNNING!

    16. A high-waisted flared plaid skirt perfect for those winter months when the weather makes it super challenging to feel motivated to put together a cute outfit. This wool-blended skirt will keep you warm and feeling super stylish (especially when you pair it with a simple black turtleneck).

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was so impressed with this product — I have never been more satisfied with a clothing purchase on Amazon, ever. The cut prevents it from being scrunchy and bulky; it’s heavyweight wool so perfectly warm for a winter skirt, it’s lined all the way down; the front waist is a solid band of fabric, it stays in place and doesn’t twist. I’m ordering more. So far the material hasn’t pilled (I have red plaid, it’s flown through two Christmas parties and an all-day charity event with no fuzz of pilling). Fantastic purchase." —D

    Get it from Amazon for $32.99 (available in sizes XS–XXL and in 31 colors and patterns).

    17. A blazer with gold buttons that will look just as good with a blouse and dress pants as it does with a tank top and jeans, which means you can pull it out of your closet when you know you need a home run of an outfit.

    Reviewers do say that it runs a bit small!

    Promising review: "This jacket is very cute and different. I wore it with jeans and tennis shoes and a white T-shirt. You can also dress it up though. The gold buttons are my favorite!" —JonS

    Get it from Amazon for $88 (available in sizes XS–3XL and in two colors).

    18. A short-sleeved jumpsuit capable of turning your day around when you spend 30 minutes struggling to figure out what to wear. Just leave all those other options lying around your bedroom floor and reach for this simple yet chic piece that requires no effort to turning into an outfit — put it on and you'll be good to go.

    model wearing the green ankle-length short-sleeved jumpsuit
    Everlane

    Get it from Everlane for $120 (available in sizes 00–16 and in three colors). 

    19. A turtleneck bodysuit reviewers say is not too thin and not too thick, so it's basically the Goldilocks of turtleneck bodysuits and will feel ~just right~ when you put it on.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This bodysuit is so comfortable! I've been looking for a bodysuit for a few skirts...you know, one that didn't result in a wedgie. I was so happy to be able to wear this bodysuit literally all day without it trying to floss me! Absolutely recommend this garment!!! And it looks cute in fall photos!" —Pullin' Reviews

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in sizes S–XXL and in 13 colors).

    20. An irregular hem pleated skirt that takes a classic style up a couple of ~notches~ and turns it into a beautiful yet simple piece that will make a statement whenever you wear it.

    model wearing the skirt in black
    Simple Retro

    Promising review: "This skirt is beautiful and classic. As with all of Simple Retro's items, it has lovely little details, like the two buttons used to fasten the skirt. The fabric and make are of high quality. I love the feel of the fabric. This is a piece I can wear in many different ways and in all seasons, for years to come." —Christine

    Get it from Simple Retro for $64.99 (available in sizes XS–L and in three colors).

    21. An oversized houndstooth knitted sweater vest destined to be the star of your wardrobe as you show your friends just how much of a fashionista you are. Pair it with a buttondown, turtleneck, or even a long-sleeved T-shirt and jeans for a chic look that's so on trend.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this vest! It gives me a total vintage look. The sweater itself is already oversized, but I wanted a looser fit, so I went a size bigger, and I am happy with how it fits. Shipping did take long, but it was very clear at the time of purchase the expected arrival date, so that wasn’t a surprise. I'm really thinking of getting more colors!!" —Fani Giwa

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in sizes S–L and in 15 colors and styles).

    22. A double-layered V-neck bodysuit many reviewers love so much they went back to buy more colors — and if that's not a sure sign that this is a fashionable yet comfortable piece you need, I don't know what is.

    model wearing the bodysuit in orange
    Abercrombie & Fitch

    Promising review: "This is a great bodysuit. I loved it so much I ordered three more in different colors. I love the double lining because it means I have no need for a bra. Arm holes are a little big, but if you do not need a bra, it shouldn't be an issue." —janette

    Get it from Abercrombie & Fitch for $39 (available in sizes XXS–XXL and in six colors). 

    23. A cropped sweatshirt just begging to be paired with your favorite leggings for a comfy look that's still fashion-forward for working from home or lazy Saturdays when you don't feel like leaving the house. That does happen.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This crop is so cute! I wear it to workout and in my daily life. It’s pretty thick and well-made. I can’t get over just how soft it feels!! 10/10 recommend." —Maia

    Get it from Amazon for $22.89 (available in sizes S–XL and in 16 colors and patterns).

    24. A pair of faux leather crop pants that, the second you slip on, will make you feel like a total badass. Trust me — nobody is going to want to mess with you when they see you rocking these.

    model wearing the black faux leather pants
    Tobi

    Get it from Tobi for $59 (originally $118; available in sizes S–L). 

    25. A long-sleeved cardigan top light enough to wear on its own as a shirt, or as an extra layer over your favorite tank or tee. We love a top that can do both.

    Promising review: "I really love this shirt. I received a lot of compliments. I will be buying more." —Tammy

    Get it from Amazon for $20.96 (available in sizes 14–24 and in seven prints).

    26. A super stylish midi skirt made with a rib-knit material, so it's not only stretchy but also comfy to wear even if there's a chill in the air.

    Promising review: "This skirt looks so good on. The color is perfect for fall and winter. I will be pairing it with sweaters. It looks expensive on." —Alicia Adams

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99 (available in sizes XS–XL and in 22 colors).

    27. A striped turtleneck with a super cute button detailing on the shoulders for an added detail that really makes this sweater shine. Wear this with your favorite pair of jeans for a casual yet chic look every minimalist (and maximalist, alike) will approve of.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this sweater. The buttons on the top really add a nice accent to the sweater. It is soft while still being warm. I can not wait to wear it later when we finally have winter weather. Don't hesitate to get one for yourself. Fits true to size." —Janet

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99 (available in sizes S–XL and in 13 colors).

    28. A pair of Aritzia Melina pants you've probably seen everyone on TikTok raving about during their fall #OOTD videos. Between those and all the 5-star reviews, you better believe that these on-trend pants are worth the money.

    model wearing the cropped faux leather pants in blue
    Aritzia

    Reviewers do say they run small, so order one size up. 

    Promising review: "I love these pants, and I think that if you need one item in your closet, it would be the Melina pants. I'm 5'3" and bought the regular length thinking that the short length would be too short, but I was wrong. Good thing about the style of these pants, you can get them tailored and the look won't change. They do fit slightly smaller, but when I put them on today, they were loose so I'm assuming it's because I stretched them out. After buying leather pants from multiple clothing brands, the Melina pants are the only pair that stretch and don't stick to you weirdly when you sweat." —Amy

    Get them from Aritzia for $148 (available in sizes 00–16, short, long, and in 29 colors and patterns). 

    29. A wrap blouse featuring voluminous sleeves that can be worn off-the-shoulder that just may become your favorite top you've ever owned (I V strong phrase, I know). But when you have a semi-formal occasion coming up and are struggling with what to wear, this top will always be the right answer.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This blouse is definitely a statement maker. I love how voluminous the sleeves are, it really adds so much drama to any outfit. The material is definitely thicker than expected but it makes it feel more luxe!" —Jessica Moore

    Get it from Amazon for $36.99 (available in sizes XS–XL and in 19 colors).

    30. A duster cardigan in a neutral color you really can't go wrong with — wear this over dresses, blouses, or even a T-shirt to give your outfit more dimension.

    Reviewer wearing the cardigan in tan
    amazon.com

    Promising review: I wanted a lightweight sweater to wear indoors, and this one is it! I ordered a few sizes up so it would be loose over my clothes. I am tall, and this sweater comes down to my knees and covers whatever I am wearing nicely. I love that it is soft and thin. I washed it and air dried it — no shrinkage. No regrets!!" —CC

    Get it from Amazon for $32.20 (available in sizes 1X–6X and in four colors).

    31. A corset blazer that means business — put this on over whatever you're already wearing, and you'll feel like a million bucks.

    model wearing the black blazer
    Lilly's Kloset

    BTW — Lilly's Kloset is a Black woman-owned online boutique that has been bringing women fashion-forward clothing, shoes, and accessories since 2012. Their mission is to help dress women for their most memorable moments.

    33. An oversized knit sweater for a cozy chic piece you'll reach for at least a couple of times a week.

    model wearing the sweater in green
    Aerie

    Reviewers do confirm that it is oversize, so oversized in fact that you may want to order at least one size down. 

    Promising review: "I LOVE this sweater. It is super comfortable, and it's warm while still being breathable. I got the green, and it's such a great color for fall. I knew before purchasing that it was going to be big, and I was ok with it being super oversized because I wear it with leggings but beware....it is HUGE. I could have easily sized down 1 to 2 sizes. It does have a bit of a 'potato sack' look like others have said, so if you want something a little more fitted keep that in mind. All of that being said, I have every intention of buying another one. I could live in this sweater." —Shel

    Get it from Aerie for $59.95 (available in sizes XXS–XXL and in six colors). 

    34. An oversized graphic tee or in other words, the T-shirt you're going to reach for when you want a casual yet cool look. And if you want extra style points, add a faux leather jacket and combat boots.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I LOVE basics and I can't get enough of them! This graphic tee is something you want in your closet because you can make so many outfits with it. The material is soft and comfortable and it has an oversized fit." —Marielle Sanchez

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99 (available in sizes S–XL and in 10 colors).

    35. A pair of vintage straight-leg jeans perfect for anyone who has been a little reluctant to ~step out~ of their skinny jeans. These jeans are just as comfy and will go with everything in your closet, so you'll find allllll the excuses to wear them.

    model wearing the ankle-length jeans in blue denim
    Madewell

    Promising review: "I love these vintage jeans so much that I'm buying an extra pair! I'm usually size 26 petite, however, I sized down to size 25 and the jeans were still a tiny bit loose. I will try size 24 this time around for a tighter fit. These jeans are perfect and an amazing quality! I live in them!" —Baochicawowow

    Get them from Madewell for $128 (available in sizes 23–37, 23–33 Petite, and 23–37 Tall).

    36. A velvet jacket you can add as a layer to any outfit to feel just a little bit fancier without compromising your comfort level.

    reviewer wearing the jacket in red velvet
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "The jacket is super cute on, and it is very comfortable. It's very dramatic and works with skinny jeans, leggings, and can even accessorize a dressier outfit. As others suggested, it could use a button to pull it together, and if you sew, that is an easy DIY fix. I'm going to buy a frog closure to sew on." —Joan V

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99 (available in sizes S–XL and in 12 colors).

    37. And a snake heart printed bow blouse combining tough and feminine imagery into one AH-mazing blouse that will make you smile every time you put it on.
