    40 Cute And Trendy Things You’ll Probably Want To Own If You Consider Yourself, Well, Cute And Trendy

    Because improving your closet is a hobby at this point.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Some may have been sent as samples, but all opinions and reviews are our own.

    Unless otherwise specified, all sizes in this post are listed in women’s.

    1. A pair of Abercrombie '90s high-rise straight jeans so you'll always have a staple pair of denim you can rely on. These will look good with everything — and we mean everything.

    My colleague Abby Kass loves these:

    "After two years of only wearing jeans a handful of times, I knew it was time to invest in a great pair. I had heard SO much about these jeans on TikTok and decided to see what the hype was all about. And let me tell you, they are SO worth it. I ended up getting the curve style (because it has two extra inches and fit my waist better), but I love how these jeans look. They're a classic style you can really wear with anything. I've only had them for a couple of weeks, and I've worn them in both casual and dressier settings. I've already gone back to get a second pair in black. That's how good these are. These do sell out fast, so don't delay if you want to add these to your closet." 

    Promising review: "THIS IS YOUR SIGN TO PURCHASE THESE!! I'm obsessed with these jeans. I'm about to get all the colors. They fit SO WELL. I am 5'4" and got the regulars. They are the perfect length to wear with heels. If you are more a sneaker person, get the short length. I am so proud of Abercrombie. Whoever is behind the fit science of these jeans I salute you. Great job! " —Abercrombie Customer

    Get it from Abercrombie for $99 (available in sizes 23–37, extra short, short, regular, long, and extra-long, 16 washes, and in a curve style). 

    2. A flowy ruffled-hem dress your washing machine will be tired of seeing because of how often you'll end up wearing (and washing) it.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this dress — it fits perfectly and it's so adorable. The first day I wore it I got so many compliments and it was so comfortable. It was nice to wear as a dress or even a long shirt with leggings. The color is really cute too. I definitely recommend it and will probably buy more in different colors!" —Jasmine Ball

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and in 18 colors).

    Psst — This item is included in Prime Try Before You Buy so you can give it a trial run if you're a member!

    3. A pair of loose overalls that are the perfect amount of roomy and comfy while still looking put together.

    Promising review: "I have gotten so many compliments on these overalls! I was looking for something comfortable and light enough to wear during the summer since I'm not a big fan of shorts. I love them so much I ordered another pair in blue!" —Cynthia Cahalen

    Get them from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in sizes S–3XL and 17 colors/patterns). 

    4. Or a flowy shorts jumpsuit for the same effect just ~breezier.~

    Promising review: "Great romper! The material is so soft and airy, but not see-through. It fits perfectly and washes well (I hung it up to dry). It is loose on the top, so a cami or a sports bra might look better as it may show, and it is a good length on the bottom so that it doesn’t look like booty shorts. I am purchasing another in a different color because it will become a staple of my wardrobe!" —ArmyWife

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and 17 colors/patterns).

    5. A pair of distressed Bermuda shorts if it's just too hot for you to wear your coveted pair of distressed jeans. Sometimes ya just need to let the legs breathe (fashionably of course).

    Promising review: "These shorts are a great length and the stretch is amazing. They look good with tees or cute tops. Great for shopping or just hanging out." —Valdes NC

    Get them from Torrid for $55.50 (available in sizes 10–30).

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

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in one size and seven colors).

    7. A scalloped-edge one-strap bikini because if you're the most fashionable person you know, then obviously your swimwear is going to be just as fabulous as your wardrobe.

    Promising review: "First of all, I never write reviews but this suit is beyond amazing, so I felt like I needed to share! I hate swimsuits, hate shopping for them, and especially hate putting them on. This is by far the most comfortable and adorable suit I have ever put on. I am in love! I sized up and it fits perfectly! I am a mom of three little ones, so I am constantly running around in a suit, and this stays put and, as I mentioned before, it is so comfortable. I want it in all the colors now!!!" —Michael A. Byrd

    Get it from Amazon for $28.66+ (available in sizes S–XL and in seven colors).

    8. And a super cute straw hat to ~top~ off your beach look. This'll keep you looking trendy and shield you from harmful UV rays.

    Promising review: "Let me start off by staying I've never been a beach hat type person...until now! I love this hat!!! When I bought it I wasn't sure if I could pull it off. (You know, it looks good on others but not so good on me.) Well, I just got back from Belize and this hat was amazing. I love how adjustable it is. I was able to comfortably wear it while riding a golf cart, all day at the beach, and even out on a kayak without it blowing off or being too tight. And it was just the right coverage for me. Enough to protect my sensitive eyes and fair skin from the sun yet not so large that it was in the way. I wore it much more than I thought I would because it was so useful, cute, and comfortable! Great buy." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in 22 colors).

    9. 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.

    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 $33.99 (available in sizes S–XXL and in 38 styles and colors).

    Psst — This item is included in Prime Try Before You Buy so you can give it a trial run if you're a member!

    After writing about this set so many times in BuzzFeed posts (and reading the glowing reviews of course), I just had to see what the hype was about. I ordered this in pink for a recent trip to California and it was the comfiest and cutest outfit I've ever worn on a trip. I honestly want to order it in more colors that's how much I love it. It was so effortless to throw on and style — just add a cute bag, some sunnies, and sneakers for a cute and ready-to-go 'fit.

    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 16 styles).

    15. A one-shoulder cow print top with just the right amount of stretch so you can wear it all day and all night and not feel constricted. It's ~utterly~ perfect.

    This top is so comfy cozy and adds a nice pop of pattern to my otherwise neutral wardrobe (this is still a neutral LOL). I've gotten so many compliments on this top and rightfully so — it's fun, supplies killer Y2K vibes, and is all-around a chic wardrobe staple. I love the fit so much I may buy it in more patterns.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and seven patterns).

    16. An MLE cloud claw clip for keeping handy on days you just want to toss your hair up. The best part is it won't dent you hair like a hair tie. #HairWin

    MLE

    MLE is a woman-owned, New York-based brand whose focus to create fashionable accessories that are sustainable and bold. 

    I own this claw clip and absolutely adore it. It's actually the perfect size for my hair...I have a few other claw clips from other brands and they're actually a bit large for my hair so it tends to fall out. This one is such an accessory statement and is really durable. I need it in every color. 

    Promising review: "This clip is so gorgeous and actually holds my hair. I have straight fine hair and I feel like most clips never work. My hair always slips through and falls out, but this clip holds it in all day, for real. Again, so gorgeous and elegant. A statement piece to go with any outfit. I plan to buy more so I can have all the colors!" —Tiffany W. 

    Get it from MLE for $28 (available in three colors). 

    17. 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 $22.98+ (available in sizes S–XL and 44 styles).

    18. A ruffled floral dress for a romantic piece that just beckons to be twirled in. Your new summer go-to perhaps?

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and 28 colors/designs).

    I was sent this fanny pack in the hot pink color and boy oh boy is it my new fave dog walking bag. (TBH I'd wear it even when not walking the dog). The neoprene fabric makes it flexible to be able to fit a ton of necessities inside, like my wallet, keys, some treats for my pup, sunglasses, and even a power bank to recharge my phone. If you're looking for a cute, sleek, and functional fanny pack — get this one. 

    Get it from Em John Jewelry for $38 (available in hot pink, black, and cream).

    21. A ruffle knit tank — aka any pair of pant's new BFF. I'm kinda thinking I need this super cute tank in alllllll the colors.

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in sizes XS–L and in 31 colors/styles). 

    22. A lacy bodysuit you're able to wear under a chic blazer as a sexy top. I've seen some of my most favorite influencers styling these lately and I'm obsessed.

    One of my fave influencers Mary Skinner (@mary.cj.skinner) styled something super similar in a video recently and I decided I need a lacy bodysuit in my closet ASAP. 

    Promising review: "Love this! It’s so soft. Usually worried about lingerie being itchy, but it’s sooo comfortable and doesn’t feel like anything is on." —heatheracarr
