    The long black cardigan with an open front

    Promising review: "You can never have enough black sweaters. I love this sweater because it's very lightweight. It's also longer than most of my sweaters. It's true to size in fit. I'm sure I'll make great use of my new purchase." —DebbJ

    Price: $27.60+ (originally $69; available in sizes 1X-3X and in black on sale and blue and red at full price)

    2. A muscle tank dress that's comfortable, cute, and will be a staple you'll find yourself reaching for all year long.


    Promising review: "I love this dress! I think the muscle tank cut is flattering and the length is great. You can wear this running errands or dress it up with booties and a longer sweater. I’m 5-foot-10, 150lbs, and the small fit well. The material is on the thin side, but I knew that from the reviews and was fine with it because I live in hot weather." — kellyocon

    Price: $69 (available in sizes XXS-XXL)

    3. A floral print puff-sleeve blouse to pair perfectly with your favorite pair of blue jeans, white jeans, or even dress pants. The possibilities are endless!

    Price: $69 (available in sizes XXS-XXL)

    4. A ruffle mini skirt made in a soft and stretchy material so you can dress it up for nice occasions but you'll still feel like you're lounging at home.

    Price: $39 (available in sizes XS-L and in navy and grey)

    5. A khaki twill jacket that's a little different than your typical jean jacket but is still in a neutral color to match with whatever else you have on.

    Model wearing the jacket with silver buttons down the front and two pockets with buttons in green

    Price: $118 (available in sizes XS-XL)

    6. An asymmetrical midi skirt, because cheetah print is a neutral color, and you'll find so many ways to style this, such as with a black tank, a graphic tee, or even a matching top for a chic monochromatic look.

    The tan midi skirt with black and brown cheetah-print

    Price: $69 (available in sizes XS-XXL and in three colors and prints).

    7. A pair of white jeans to show the world that you're a rule-breaker and can ~rock~ these babies well beyond Labor Day with your favorite sweater and boots.

    Model wearing the high-waisted skinny jeans  with a white knit sweater and chunky black boots

    Promising review: "I love a white jean but am very particular because they need to be good quality (not see-through). I've been wanting a more expensive pair but opted for these because they are very similar for a fraction of the price and W O W! Honestly, I made a great decision. GREAT PRICE and even better fit." —cbardales1

    Price: $34.99 (originally $70; available in sizes 24Wx28L-34Wx28L, 25W-30L-36W-30L)

    8. A scalloped-neck cami great for the hot weather now when you want to feel like you're practically wearing nothing and then again in the fall, layered under your favorite jean or bomber jacket.

    Model wearing the cami in black with scallop detailing around the neckline and bottom hem

    Promising review: "I love this top and the scallop detailing. It's simple, but effective to wear under my patterned blazer. It would also look cute with white jeans in the spring and summer." —3sonmom76

    Price: $39 (available in sizes XS-XL and and 1X-3X in three colors and prints).

    9. A tank maxi dress that'll quickly ~slither~ into your rotation of favorites because you'll find you can wear it for just about anything — from running errands to a date night.

    Model wearing the tank dress with a black, white, and grey snakeskin print with a scoop neck and slits up the side

    Price: $39 (available in sizes XS-L)

    10. A high-rise jegging accurately named "butter" jeans, because that's how they'll feel when you put them on. You may even start switching out your leggings for these comfy pants instead.

    The high-rise jegging in dark blue

    Reviewers do say the jeggings run large, so size down for the perfect fit.

    Promising review: "I own multiple pairs of these I love them so much. They are buttery soft and have plenty of stretch but not too much that they are falling off by the end of the day. I’ve been wearing them for a few months and they’ve held up fine." —GinaJacobs

    Price: $39 (available in sizes 24-34 and in two washes)

    11. A faux leather moto jacket you can put on when you're in a ~blush~ and need to get out the door ASAP but need a nice finishing touch to your outfit.

    The oversize faux leather moto jacket with snap-down lapels, zippers, and a belted waist in blush

    Promising review: "This jacket has that perfect oversized but not sloppy look that gives a Parisian edge to anything you put it over. I love it. I bought a medium, and I wear size 8." —MWestphal

    Price: $74.90+ (originally $98-$128; available in sizes XS-XL in blush and black and 1X-3X)

    12. A ribbed tank top *technically* made for moving and working out, but you'll totally want to wear it when you're doing other things, too.

    Model wearing the ribbed tank with cutaway shoulders and a tight fit

    Promising review: "I would wear this shirt every day if I could and sometimes I do! The fit is perfect. I normally wear a medium in FP. I wear a 36 D bra and normally an 8 in clothing. This shirt looks great with a sports bra because of the cut. I hang this shirt to dry, and it maintains its shape wash after wash. I am going to get another one because I wear it so much!" — SAC86

    Price: $38 (available in sizes XS-L and in seven colors)

    13. A wrap denim miniskirt that's a basic with a cool detail that keeps it fresh and on-trend. Pair it with any top you have in your closet, and you'll have a fashion-forward look people will fawn over.

    The denim mini skirt in light blue with an asymmetrical wrap-style front, frayed hem, and distressing throughout

    Price: $78 (available in sizes 24-31 and in two washes)

    14. An asymmetrical long-sleeve shirtdress, because the LBD is a style that everyone should have at least one (or more) of in the back of their closet to pull out when they need an outfit that will make them look great and feel even better.

    Model wearing the black shirtdress with balloon sleeves, buttons down the front, and tie waist

    Price: $88 (available in sizes 1X-3X)

    15. A textured side tie crepe jumpsuit you'll feel so ~red hot~ in, you'll be wearing it at every nice event from weddings to parties to a nice night at home for years to come.

    The jumpsuit in red with wide legs and a v-neck

    Price: $94.34 (available in sizes 2-16)

    16. A tie-back knit dress so easy to throw on the morning when you really can't decide what to wear and need something easy and fresh — even if you're not going anywhere all day.

    Promising review: "LOVE LOVE LOVE! This dress is super cute, especially paired with tennis shoes! I got tons of compliments, and it's a very comfortable dress! It can be dressed up or down." — KristinCoile

    Price: $69 (available in sizes XS-XXL, XXS-XL Petite and in three solid colors and prints)

    17. A pair of bike shorts you'll find yourself doing everything in. Working out? Yep! Lounging around? Of course! Running errands? You betcha!

    The high-waisted bike shorts in black

    Price: $49 (available in sizes XXS-XL and in black and green)

    18. An A-line maxi that's essentially a blank canvas for you to add your favorite accessories to really make the outfit scream YOU!

    Model wearing the scoop-neck a-line maxi with spaghetti straps in navy blue

    Promising review: "This dress was made perfectly. It is true to size. The dress is so incredibly comfortable and looks stunning on. I would certainly buy Loveappella garments again. LOVE LOVE LOVE" — Congenialtiy

    Price: $89 (available in sizes 1X-3X and in navy and black)

    19. Linen joggers perfect for super hot days when you just don't feel like wearing shorts — or even fall days when it's a little cooler but not enough to break out your jeans quite yet.

    The joggers in green with front patch pockets, ribbed cuffs, and an elasticized drawstring waist

    Promising review: "These pants are the best. They are cool and comfortable, and they look nice. They're very easy to care for and they don't wrinkle easily and the waistband doesn’t roll over. I love them and am buying more. They run large though." — BunnyWheels

    Price: $59 (available in sizes XS-XXL and in five colors and prints)

    20. A crepe blazer designed to look just as good with jeans and dress pants as it does with your favorite pair of bike shorts. Your friends will be calling you a style icon after they see you rocking this.

    Model wearing the blazer with a single-button closure and flap pockets in bright pink

    Reviewers do say that it runs large, so order one size down.

    Promising review: "This blazer is so cute! It’s a great lightweight, quality fabric. The white color is so cute and perfect to throw on over a summer dress or with jeans. It definitely runs large. I ended up getting a size 6, while my normal size is an 8 in blazers." —thefashionflirt

    Price: $42.50 (originally $85; available in sizes 2-12 and in pink, black, and white)

    21. A rib-knit tie-waist maxi dress you can put on when you just can't take another day of wearing leggings and still want to be comfortable whether you're at home or not. (Yes, that does happen sometimes.)

    Model wearing the maxi dress in beige

    Promising review: "I love this dress sooo much! It fits perfectly. You can easily dress it up and down. It is amazing!" — Binary

    Price: $55 (available in sizes 2-14 and in beige and black)

    22. A pleated midi skirt perfect for year-round wear as you can wear it on its own in the warmer months and with tights in the colder months.

    Model wearing the skirt in black with small white polka dots

    Promising review: "I love love love this skirt. It's not see-through. It falls perfectly and is true to size. It's very versatile. You can wear in all seasons. It's not too heavy and not too thin... just right. I love it." — Eve07

    Price: $31.60+ (originally $79; available in sizes XS-XL in four colors and prints and 1X-3X in black and cheetah print)

    23. A denim jacket worth the investment, because this baby has been in style for years, and it's not going anywhere. Trust me.

    Model wearing the denim jacket with silver buttons and distressing throughout

    Promising review: "This jacket fits perfectly! It's got a little stretch but it's still good quality denim, not too thin and just the right amount of distress. It's a great length and pairs perfectly with dresses or pants" —Gemig

    Price: $98 (available in sizes 1X-3X)

    24. And high-rise black leggings at such a ridiculously low price you can buy a pair (or two) and keep them in constant rotation in your wardrobe.

    Model wearing the leggings in black

    Promising review: "These leggings are extremely comfortable and fit great. They are tight, allowing a soothing sensation to felt on the legs, they and can be great for lounging or for exercise. I will wear them often." —Jenny_A

    Price: $19 (available in sizes XXS-XL)
