    1. A ☆ star ☆ pattern sweater that'll have everyone commenting on your next #OOTD post, "OMG, WHERE IS THAT FROM!?", Amazon

    Promising review: "This sweater is better quality than I expected. It is a heavier knit, and I have washed it once and so far it has held up well. Order one or two sizes up if you would like the oversized fit pictured. It is comfortable, soft, and feels like cotton." —abasil

    11. An oversize knit sweater dress that will keep you looking fine, fresh, and fierce even amidst the frigid winter weather.,

    Promising review: "This is by far one of my favorite Amazon clothing purchases. The sweater material itself is soft and thick, and the quality of the design is great. Pair this with over-the-knee boots and you have a great fall/winter look. After wearing this out for one night, I received a handful of compliments. I highly recommend this dress." —Brittany

    13. Edgy fleece-lined faux-leather leggings since you probs have a beloved pair of leggings already, but deserve an upgrade that are sleek and sophisticated. An iconic pants upgrade if I ever saw one.

    Promising review: "I get sooo many compliments! I love the way my butt looks in them. I'm a hairstylist and I loved how, after a haircut, I didn't feel itchy because the hair just slid off. They're fleece-lined, too, so that is just a bonus in comfortable land! Love, love, love them — I got a size 3XL and they fit perfectly!

    Get it from Boohoo for $20 (originally $40; available in sizes 18–24).

    Amazon, Ali Faccenda / BuzzFeed

    I have this jacket and I'm OBSESSED. I love to wear work from home outfits that are functional and cozy but also look trendy for meeting calls. This fits the bill to a T and is perfect layered over a classic long sleeve. It's oversized so if you want it more fitted I'd suggest going down a size.

    Get it from Amazon for $69.90 (available in sizes XXS–3X and three colors).

    19. A floral silk turban that'll protect your hair AND have you looking fashionably accessorized at the same time. This double-lined turban reduces friction, while locking in moisture.

    Grace Eleyae

    Promising review: "I am so happy that I gave this turban a try. It is truly worth every penny. It is super soft and feels amazing, so lightweight. It did not make me feel weighted down or hot. The most important test stays in place all night long! Between the hidden adjustable straps and the elastic, it really held up.. This is my new best friend. My hair was soft and manageable the next morning. Bottom line, don't hesitate to treat yourself to this bit of luxury." —E.T.

    Get it from Grace Eleyae for $77.

    20. A puffer jacket that'll beat the winter winds and will look cute doing it. It features an elastic drawstring around the waist for a cute cinching moment if you want a more tailored fit.

    Beginning Boutique

    Promising review: "Super comfy and light, would totally be able to wear with layers but can also wear with light shirts as it isn't super thick. Super happy with the purchase." —Jemma C.

    Get it from Beginning Boutique for $95.99 (available in sizes XXS–L).

    21. A pair of high-waisted flare pants that are made with the softest material imaginable and can work for lazy-day outfits or even outfits you wear when running errands to the grocery store.,

    Promising review: "I wore these pants on a first date and they made my booty and thighs look amazing. I also wore these pants to my office job and my coworkers went crazy over them.

    Get them from Amazon for $17.99 (available in sizes S-XXL and in 16 colors).

    22. A dress with a double-tiered skirt that looks just darling with some cute booties and a fedora hat.,

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this dress — so much so that I bought it in three different colors. It’s so comfortable and the length and flow is perfect. If you want more length and/or are between sizes, I’d recommend sizing up." —Taylor

    Get it from Amazon for $24.98+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 33 colors).

    23. A ribbed knit pencil skirt — AKA a cozy, suitable-for-work wardrobe piece that's also comfortable to lounge in. Who knew skirts could be loungewear!?

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in sizes XS-L and in 21 colors).

    24. A houndstooth sweater vest that's just the right amount of oversized to wear over some classic turtlenecks or long sleeve tees. *Major Clueless vibes*

    Ali Faccenda / BuzzFeed

    I snagged this vest recently after seeing one of my fave Instagram creators, Margo Oshry, wearing it in a 'Gram pic. I immediately ran to Amazon to see if I could find it. I wasn't too sure how it would fit me since sometimes boxier fits tend to give me linebacker vibes but this was so surprisingly cute. I'm tempted to go back and order it in the other colors available. I get so many compliments on it and is a great wardrobe piece to have on hand if I'm feeling like I wanna add a little something extra to a basic scoop tee or turtleneck. It runs on the bigger side so if you want a more fitted look I'd suggest sizing down.

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in sizes S–L and nine colors).

    25. A pair of Nisolo Dari Boots in a stunning tan color that will stand the test of time. They feature a water-resistant leather so you won't have to worry if you end up getting caught in the rain.

    Promising review: "This clutch is so much more beautiful in person. I was pleasantly surprised by how the clasp functionality works and how it mechanically stays open when you pull it apart. It’s so easy to pull open and push close. Please make more colors!" —Express reviewer

    Get it from Express for $29+ (originally $58; available in three colors/prints).

    27. A ribbed V-neck top so effortlessly chic, all you'll need to make it look good is a pair of leggings, biker shorts, or in the words of Kendall Jenner, "cute jeans."

    reviewer wearing the taupe top

    Promising review: "My newest favorite top! It feels really cozy! The material is soft and lightweight but not sheer. The color and fit is perfect for fall, and for lounging around the house in winter." —Rain

    Ali Faccenda / BuzzFeed

    Machete is a woman-owned small business located in Atlanta, Georgia that makes the most stunning accessories from earrings, to phone cases, to hair clips.

    I'm a self-proclaimed hoop girl, but since having my ears pierced since the first grade, I always want to be careful of the weight of the earrings I'm popping in my lobes. These are literally weightless, I can't feel them in my ears, and they look FAB with everything I own. I also am such a fan of the earring backings on these, they're unlike any I've see before. They're a flat cylinder backing that are comfortable and stay put on the earring post so I don't have to worry about them sliding off the back and the hoops falling out.

    Get them from Machete for $36.

    30. A ribbed beanie to top off your loungewear 'fit that looks chic and stylish. Beanies also come in clutch for days where doing your hair just seems like wayyyyy too much effort.

    31. A split hem skirt featuring a soft faux-suede material that feels buttery soft on the skin and is ACTUALLY comfortable., Amazon

    Promising review: "I really love the design of this skirt. It's super cute, and really flattering. The faux suede feels high quality and realistic. It's fairly thick and should hold up after multiple wearings. It has just enough stretch to hug my body just right. The slit is really sexy." —D. Johnson

    Get it from Amazon for $16.04+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and seven colors/patterns).

    32. Comfy wide leg jeans in case all you own are skinny jeans and it's time to expand your horizons. These wide leg jeans are super soft and stretchy you MAY even want to wear them while you WFH.

    Amazon / Via, Amazon / Via

    Promising review: "This is a lovely dress that feels a lot more expensive than it looks. I bought it for a wedding and it was the perfect fall dress. Very soft material, well made and doesn’t wrinkle! I’m on the shorter side, and the length is a little more than a tea length dress, but not a maxi. Also the sleeves can be pushed up and will stay in place (great for shorter gals)! The fit is as expected, and I was pleased that it was true to size! Highly recommend this dress!" —Ann Kathryn Polka

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99+ (available in sizes 14–22 and nine colors).

    34. A customizable tennis bracelet featuring an array of fun charms you can mix and match to your liking. You should always invest in pieces that you'll wear over and over again and a customized piece def fits the bill.

    35. A cross-body bag with the daintiest little bumblebee on it, so cute, it could pass as a designer bag.,

    Promising review: "This is a beautiful purse when you don't want to carry too much stuff or if you are a mom that still needs room for her personal belongings and not stashing your things into the diaper bag. The little bag itself feels really soft and looks pretty but classy. It has plenty of space in the main compartment and the other two are good for keeping your hand cream, lip balm, sunscreen, glasses, cards holder etc. All I can say is you won't regret buying this one." —Gaby&Ricardo
