    17. A pair of black skinny jeans because need we say more? They have just the right amount of stretch so you don't have to feel constricted when you throw them on.

    18. An open cardigan for layering over tees and tanks when the AC is blasting in your apartment and you're too lazy to grab a blanket off the couch. This is also great to bring when going out to restaurants in case it's a bit frigid inside.

    19. Lightweight joggers that'll give your old worn-out pair of college sweats a run for their money. These can even be dressed up with a fancier top for more cozy-profesh vibes.
