    10. A pair of black skinny jeans with the ideal amount of stretch in them – they're comfortable enough that you'll want to wear them all day...and the next day...and the day after that...


    I bought these jeans last week because I needed a new pair of black jeans that fit well, and boy, are they amazing. I've probably worn them four of the last seven days because they're so comfortable and almost make me feel like I'm wearing leggings. Yeah, they're that good.

    15. A polka dot number you can quickly throw on on a Saturday morning when you told your friends you'd meet them for brunch at 12, but you accidentally slept until 11:30. Whoops!

    Promising review: "I'm obsessed with this dress! I purchased to wear for a wedding and got many compliments. The material is great and the fit was perfect. The color is a tad darker in person, but I expected it to be, and it was exactly what I wanted!" —Sabrina Smith

    18. A floral tie neck peasant dress so beautiful, the first words out of my mouth when I saw it were, "Oh my god, I NEED that immediately."

    Draper James

    And then I got it and was still in love with it after I tried it on. It's a great length, pattern, and perfect for those fall days when there's a slight chill in the air. Ahhh..

    Get it from Draper James for $150 (available in sizes XS-XXL).

    19. A super cute circle crossbody you can fit the essentials in (phone, keys, wallet) on your weekend adventures when you don't need a big huge tote weighing you down.


    Promising review: "I have fallen in love with this purse. I received it yesterday, and when I removed it from the box, I was very pleased with it. It is a nice size purse for me to put my things in it. I might not be able to put a whole lot of things in it, but I'm still pleased with it. It's true to size and came exactly on time. I might end up ordering another one but in a different color." —Queengolddust

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99+ (available in two sizes and three colors).

    20. A trench duster cape that will reveal to the world your true self: Superwoman, of course.,

    Promising review: "I LOVE this cape! It's perfect for fall. I got tons of compliments on it, and I wore it with a little black dress under with thigh-high boots. I read reviews before, and they said to order a size down from your normal size. I am so glad I did!" —Raemia Higgins

    21. An oversized turtleneck so comfortable you won't want to take it off, even when you go to bed.

    Abby Kass / BuzzFeed / Via

    I would know, I almost slept in it the other night. This oversized mock neck sweater is perfect for fall. I wore to while apple picking (above) and was so cozy but still felt chic. I know that I'll be wearing it from now till it gets to hot to put sweaters on.

    Get it from American Eagle for $29.97 (available in sizes XS-XL and in eight colors).

    22. A v-neck dress to help you achieve that chill boho look you've been attempting for years now.

    Promising review: "You need this dress! I love it so much. If you have a larger chest, I would size up. If not, stick to your normal size. It is not see through and just flows beautifully. The colors are perfect for transitioning into fall with booties and a Moto jacket." —Lauren Fuquay

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 25 colors).

    23. A cardigan to keep on hand when you're not really sure what the temperature is going to be like outside. Is it still summer? Finally fall? Already winter? All three in one day?

    Promising review: "I bought this sweater last week for this coming fall. It's so cute. You can wear it with jeans, and it is a good choice for Fall. I'm going to order another one for my best friend cause she saw it on me, and she liked it. I think it worths its price. I recommend it." —Niloofar

    Get it from Amazon for $17.88+ (available in sizes XS-XL and in 21 styles).

    24. A neoprene pencil skirt – strangers on the street will probably stop and tell you how much the like it.


    Get it from ELOQUII for $59.95+ (available in sizes 14-28, regular, petite, and viola, and in 26 styles).

    25. An oversized sweater dress that's essentially the same as wearing a big hug all day and, really, who doesn't want that???,

    Promising review: "I LOVE THIS SWEATER DRESS! I read the reviews, and they said if you want the over size look to go up a size. I am 5’4. 145 pounds and normally wear a medium, but I went up to a large for the over size look. I normally roll up the sleeve once for a cute cuffed look. DEFINITELY RECOMMEND." —Jodi Hochstetler

    Get it from Amazon for $32.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in eight styles).

    26. A boyfriend blazer that'll make you feel like a boss no matter what's on your to-do list.

    Get it from Amazon for $86.69 (available in sizes XS-L).

    27. A pair of jeans to help ~widen~ your selection in the morning because you don't have to wear your favorite pair of skinny jeans every single day.

    Old Navy

    Promising review: "I bought these a week ago and I’ve worn them 4 days already! So comfy! High waisted and make the booty look GREAT!! You won’t regret these!" —Khart

    Get them from Old Navy for $22.50 (available in sizes 0-18).

    28. A velvet tank top you'll feel so ~smooth~ in as you casually drape your leather jacket over it (you'll also be so thankful that you're not fully sweating while standing outside).

    Promising review: "I love this tank! It fits great and is super cute. It great for spring, summer, and fall. I don’t have much going on in the boob-ular region, so the bottom of the tank goes just past the top of my pants but it would probably show mid drift on a more endowed lady. Just FYI, either way you should get one." —meliah

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in sizes XS-2X and in 11 colors).

    29. A tie-dye hoodie you can wear when you're extra tired but still want to look cute and not like you only slept for four hours last night.

    Urban Outfitters

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $69 (available in sizes S-XL).

    30. A wrap top I may have already added to my cart because it's so chic. Whoops!

    Promising review: "The style, color, quality of this blouse was as expected. The small size was larger than expected though. It would fit US sizes 2-4, but if you're a 0, like myself, order an XS. I made that mistake but will still keep. I can't wait to wear on a night out or even to the office!" —Carlie

    Get it from Amazon for $37.35+ (available in sizes XS-L).

    31. A midi skirt with pockets (!!) so you have a place to stash your phone and chapstick when you really don't feel like lugging your big huge purse around.,

    Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE this skirt! It’s perfect to transition into fall. It’s a little snug in the waist. I’m normally a small/medium, and I ordered a small. If I ordered again, I’d get medium. I received so many compliments! I got the rust color and wore with a white long sleeve t shirt." —Kelsey

    Get it from Amazon for $15.86 (available in sizes S-2XL and in six styles).

    32. A peasant blouse to ~mix~ up your style a bit and go for something a little bit different but so so so cute.


    Promising review: "I have always admired this blouse, and I finally purchased it, and I love it. I followed the sizing chart, and it fits perfect. I love the mixed prints. It can be worn with jeans or dressed up with black pants. Love!!!!" —Shoppingslueth

    Get it from Anthropologie for $128 (available in sizes XS-XL, 1X-3X and in three styles).

    33. A faux shearling oversized jacket because the teddy bear trend isn't going anywhere, and I'm so happy about that.

    Promising review: "I love this jacket so much! It is so soft and warm. I wore on a recent trip to Nashville and found myself wearing it on the plane and also during the day when it was cold out. I stayed nice and warm! Plus, I got lots of compliments!" —Morgan Gallagher

    Get it from Amazon for $21.37+ (available in sizes S-3X and in 17 styles).

    34. A pair of ankle boots that just may be the perfect fall boot. They're comfortable, have a heel that's just high enough, and will match basically everything in your closet. You really can't go wrong.


    Promising review: "I’ve found every excuse to wear these gorgeous boots! They’re my new “neutral”, and I’ve received numerous compliments every time I wear them. I even wore them to a wedding and danced for hours with zero pain. Perfect heel height and comfortable. The material is beautiful too!" —Jessi I.

    Get them from Able for $178 (available in sizes 6-10 and in six styles).

    35. A midi dress in so many colors and patterns you might as well add a couple to your cart cause you'll want to wear them multiple times a week.

    Promising review: "This dress is very comfortable, striking, and flattering. I bought this for the office. I’ve always wanted an animal print dress. This adds pizzazz, but I can wear to the office. I purchased it to wear in fall, so I will pair it with a pair of boots and a scarf." —Thoa

    Get it from Amazon for $15.95+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 37 styles).

    36. An angel sleeve smock top to wear when you text your friend to ask what she's wearing and she responds, "Jeans and a top".


    Get it from Boohoo for $16 (available in sizes 12-20).

    37. A pair of wide leg pants that'll match perfectly with the foliage around you and set up a quite amazing Instagram photo, if I do say so myself.,

    Promising review: "These were so awesome. I wore them to a winery and got so many compliments from friends and even strangers. They're so comfortable. I washed them to shrink them a bit, as I am 5’1. The material holds up well to washing and drying." —LR

    Get them from Amazon for $19.99 (available in sizes S-XXL and in orange and yellow).

    38. A pair of Rothy's—now made with wool so you can continue to wear the flats you love as the temperatures drop without worrying about your toes freezing.


    Get them from Rothy's for $195 or a similar non-wool style for $165 (available in sizes 5-13).

    39. A pair of faux leather leggings you can throw on when your friends force you to go out on a Friday night when all you really want to do is go to bed. At least wearing these, you'll look good and feel like you're wearing pajamas.

    Promising review: "These leggings are definitely one of my best buys from Amazon! I’ve been wearing them so much. I was surprised at how soft the material is, and it just seems to fit a large range of sizes—both me and my friend got the same size but we are 30 lbs in difference! You know what? It fits both of us equally perfect! Not sure how they managed to do it, but with no doubt it is made the best quality they could. Super comfy and flexible! You won’t believe it but I have been wearing it since I just got pregnant, and I am now into my 18 weeks pregnancy and am still wearing it without any discomfort. Of course at some point my baby bump is going to show a lot more than now and i’ll have to temporarily put it aside but now it is still my best choice to go to. Highly recommended!" —Johnny W.

    Get them from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL).

    40. A peplum puffer jacket to add a bit of ~flare~ to your wardrobe, while also keeping you protected from the elements.


    Get it from Amazon for $67.15 (available in sizes XS-XL and in four colors).

    41. A velvet midi dress that's practically perfect for your holiday party but also like every day leading up to that. Don't sleep on this beauty!,

    Promising review: "There are few words to describe this dress. It is absolutely gorgeous! Fit as expected and looks as pictured. The inside is silk, so it is super comfortable. It comes to a good length, I'm 5'7. It is stretchy so you could probably size down if you like a real fitted look, or size up to keep it loose, but I'd go with your true sizing. I would recommend this dress and many other Esprlia dresses to everyone. They really make some amazing dresses. Thank you! 😊" —Amanda Barnes

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in sizes 14W-22W and in nine styles).

    42. And a splurge-worthy tie-neck dress so cute, you'll be wearing it for years and years and years and won't even care if anyone notices.


    Promising review: "I am so glad I purchased this dress! The style is modern and subtle, and the colors make it fun. I added a blazer for a business meeting and got many compliments. It looks just as nice without the blazer. I really appreciate the extended sizing and attention to detail!" —SeattleFatshionista

    Get it from Nordstrom for $178 (available in sizes 00-18).
