    1. A ruffle knit tank — aka your cute pants' new BFF. I'm kinda thinking I need this super cute tank in alllllll the colors.

    Promising review: "Such a cute addition to any summer outfit! Highly recommend. Lightweight but detailed and works great for any occasion." —Helena Ezzeldin

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in sizes XS–L and in 30 colors/styles). 

    2. gingham puff-sleeve dress so you'll always have an easy-to-wear clothing option that's light and airy.

    BuzzFeed editor Elizabeth Lilly couldn't help but rave about this dress:

    "I brought this dress along on vacation and it even passed The Vatican dress code! I knew I had to have it after my colleague Emma Lord bought and reviewed it (#4 here). This super lightweight nap dress is unlined, but NOT see-through...even in daylight. It was so comfy for gallivanting around and long enough for me to sit on a random step on a bridge to take a rest and give my old dogs a rest. It made for a dramatic, but not TOO dramatic, look in photos I'll cherish forever. And it kept me cool in what turned out to be some hotter weather than what I anticipated. If you're looking for a way to wear something nightgown-adjacent in public but still look quite put-together, this dress is for you."

    Get it from Amazon for $30.99 (available in sizes S–XL and nine colors). 

    3. A two-piece set if you want getting dressed in the morning to be as effortless as possible.

    Promising review: "I love this set! Every time I wear it I get compliments from friends. I also like how open and breathable it is. Texas summers are very hot and I‘m not absolutely dying when I wear this! Very happy with the purchase." —Erika V.

    Get it from Amazon for $30.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and 15 styles).

    4. A tie-front dress in case you've been on the hunt for something to style under your fave denim jacket.

    Promising review: "Love this dress. Pro tip: If you want your bust to look even better in the dress, get a push-up adhesive bra. Pull the ties across each other over the connecting part of the bra, and use two safety pins to hold [it] in place. THEN tie." —Kay

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and 39 styles).

    5. And a denim jacket since you'll surely want this evergreen staple at your disposal when it's a bit breezy out and wearing a puffer coat is simply not the move.

    Promising review: "I read another review saying to size down, which I did (even though I have big chest/shoulders) and they were absolutely right. The smaller size was appropriately oversized on me and looked super cute. The fabric was a great weight and felt like it would hold up to quite a lot of wear. Color was perfect for a light blue." —Bobbi27

    Get it from Levi's for $87.98 (originally $98; available in sizes 1X–3X). 

    6. Patchwork pants if you're ready to dabble in a bit of Y2K style fashion (as a child of the 2000s, these are quite a necessity).

    Promising review: "These are really nice and trendy! I got so many compliments in these! Fit true to size and have a little stretch to them. They might be a bit short on taller people but I’m 5’6 and they fit perfectly. Definitely a good find." —Meagan Robinson

    Get it from Amazon for $33.99+ (available in sizes 0–16 and eight styles).

    7. A daisy-covered cardigan that'll set the next outfit you piece together into full bloom. This will instantly add a pop of color to an otherwise neutral outfit.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this top! I got a large, I’m usually a medium but I wanted to make sure it was a little oversized. It’s soft, doesn’t feel cheaply made at all. I will definitely order another!!!! 10/10." —Chassidy Garland

    10. A casually cool jogger set that's the easiest, comfiest outfit option your closet will ever see.

    Promising review: "This pair is much thicker, softer, and overall better quality than I expected. I bought this to work from home since I wanted something comfortable with a top that looked a little more sophisticated and professional on camera. I love this set! I am definitely buying more." —bcesparza

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and in 11 colors).

    11. Or this matching T-shirt and shorts set if you want to look on trend the next time you run out to do some errands.

    model in matching pink button T-shirt and shorts set

    Promising review: "Perfect style and fit. I prefer the buttons unbuttoned and I love the shorts pockets. I roll the shorts to make them shorter (personal preference only). I’ve washed it twice and holds up great. Perfect summer set!" —DDMom

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and in 21 colors). 

    12. A houndstooth shoulder bag so whether you're dressing for a night out or a chic shopping day trip, you'll look like an absolute star. Adding this bag to a neutral 'fit is *chef's kiss*.

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and in 15 colors).

    14. Or a mini ruffle-hem dress in case a plain white button-down dress is just too simple for you. I think it's safe to say these ruffles are anything but boring.

    Loud Bodies

    Loud Bodies is a woman-owned small biz that specializes in ethically produced sustainable clothing of all sizes.

    Bonus: Each dress comes with a complimentary slip dress (although you can opt out of it if you already own one you love, for sustainability reasons).

    Promising review: "I ADORE my Gabrielle Dress Cotton Mini. I had been following Loud Bodies for a quite awhile and love following them because of their commitment to inclusivity, sustainability, design, and their commitment to their customers. With this in mind I was eager to find an opportunity to support them. My mom got engaged this spring picked a light pink theme for her summer wedding. I reached out to the brand to see if they could make this dress in pastel pink and help me with making sure I ordered the right size. The staff was INCREDIBLE!!! They were so helpful and kind and helped me to order the exact dress I needed. I got my dress and was astounded. It looks like it is straight out of a fairytale and the material/stitching is quality! It was the perfect dress for the wedding and I was getting compliments all day. I truly love this brand and can’t wait to keep following them and support them again in the future!" —Lydia Eichelberg

    JW Pei is an Asian-, family-owned brand with minimalist purses that are made with sustainable vegan materials.

    Promising review: "I needed more 'date' bags as most of my bags are huge. I ordered this and it's exquisite. Soft and not too small. Big enough for a small purse, my keys, lipstick, extra face mask, and iPhone. Highly recommend." —Techy

    Get it from Amazon for $79.99 (available in 10 colors).

    16. A chic necklace featuring freshwater pearls and a gold-plated chain you'll wear nonstop. I have personally not stopped wearing necklaces from this brand so I def think you need one in your accessories lineup.

    Joey Baby NYC

    *Note: this piece is 18k gold plated!*

    Joey Baby NYC is an AAPI woman-owned brand based in New York. All of her jewelry pieces are incredibly on trend and amazing for layering.

    I have several pieces from the brand and love every single one. They are all such amazing quality and add something fresh to a ton of my basic tops. I absolutely adore her mixed-media necklaces like this one — half metal, half pearls. It's the perfect combo of dainty and edgy that pairs well with every outfit.

    Get it from Joey Baby NYC for $55 (available in two lengths).

    I have never put a phone case on my phone so fast. I have so many people complimenting me on this case and it truly feels so cool to be able to hold my phone with the squared edges. I actually prefer how the phone feels with it on. I def need to grab a few other colors since I love it so much. The cow print is so fun and still neutral that it looks good in all my mirror selfies.

    Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE this case!! The colors are so incredibly beautiful! I have have gotten so many compliments! Ordering was a breeze and delivery was quick!! If you are on the fence about this one, just pull the trigger and order it!! You will be pleasantly surprised!!!" —Lynda D.

    19. A midi sundress so all you'll need to go with it are some chic accessories, a pair of sandals, and perhaps a sun hat.

    FYI, this is included in Prime Try Before You Buy so you can give it a trial run if you're a member!

    Promising reviews: "LOVE this dress! It looks exactly like the picture! The pockets are deep and super handy. Very comfortable and I love that you can dress it up or down. Perfect for the summer in hot, humid weather! Going back for more colors!" —Haley

    "Found this dress through a BuzzFeed article and couldn't resist the white sunflowers. The material is stretchy and just fits your body so well. I didn't have any problems with it being see through. The length is cute, the buttons are fake so they stay uniform all the way down, and it's stretchy across the back of the bodice so bigger-chested people would love this. My mom and I have completely different body types and the large fits us both amazingly! Definitely going to try to order as many prints as I can!" —Courtney Clark

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and 39 colors/patterns).

    20. A pair of high-waisted flowy pants you'll be able to tuck a basic tank into for a solid put together 'fit.

    Promising review: "These pants are so comfortable and chic! I love that they are wide-legged and flowy. They give you the same breezy feeling that you get with a maxi skirt. The material is super soft and the perfect weight for warm weather pants. The belted ties are just the right length and add a very feminine touch. The pant legs are very wide. I cannot wait for warmer weather to get here so I can wear this outfit!" —Brittany Williams

    Get it from Amazon for $22.94+ (available in sizes S–4XL and in 14 colors).

    21. Square-block heels to slip-on with practically any outfit for a springy upgrade. The best part is the heel — a thick heel = more comfortability. 

    sand square to block heels

    Get them from Missguided for $15 (originally $38; available in sizes 5–10 and in six colors). 

    22. A ruffled sleeve pleated-skirt dress that's just begging to be twirled in. Grab your fave handbag and a pair of booties and you're set.

    Promising review: "LOVE THIS DRESS! I bought it for a wedding and got so many compliments. It fit great. I probably could have gone down a size because the top was a little loose. But it’s very flowy. The material is thin but thick enough that it’s not see-through." —Megan

    Get it from Amazon for $41.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and in eight colors).

    23. A solid oversized blazer for taking any simple look to an elite OOTD. (If you can't tell from the photos, I loveeeee this blazer).

    I absolutely adore this blazer. I wanted an "oversized" fit blazer for a while but so many blazers online are fitted which I didn't want. This one fit the bill because I wanted to be able to pair it with thicker sweaters and sweatshirts. I honestly will probs order this in more colors because it's such good quality and a great fit. 

    Get it from Amazon for $43.99 (available in sizes S–XXL and eight colors).
