I have been searching for the perfect pair of shoes for my commute pre-COVID and honestly after 20+ pairs even pairs that were in the hundreds range, I can say this is the best shoe comfort and design wise. After years of trying and searching and buying, this is my favorite pair. Once things get back to normal, I will most likely be wearing these all the time in Manhattan again." —Luck

    M. Gemi

    M. Gemi is a small business that works to create small batches of Italian hand-crafted leather goods.

    Promising review: "This is a beautiful bag. It is evident that every stitch is carefully thought out and sewn by an artist. It just makes the bag even more beautiful knowing it is designed and crafted by a generational craftsman. The inside pockets, the strap across, the handles. It is not too heavy for such a large bag and the handles are just the right size to be able to fit on your shoulder or carry as a satchel. I love it!" —Chelsea R.

    Melinda Maria Jewelry

    I adore this necklace. It's the perfect length to pair with my other coveted jewelry pieces and I LOVE the statement jewel. I gravitate towards anything sparkly and this is no exception. If you're in the market for a bit more of a ~WOW~ necklace but also something you can layer — you've just met your match. I truly cannot say enough good things about this necklace. I'm obsessed with mine. Also, it's called the Bradshaw necklace so you knowwww the SATC-obsessed fan that I am had to have this.

    Note: The fabric doesn't have any stretch!

    Promising review: "This is a really great item. It’s a very nice material, and the print is vibrant. It’s not very long so if you’re tall, make sure you’ll want to tuck it into something high waisted. The sleeves are just the tiiiiiniest bit short on me, but as I said, I’m super tall so I’m used to it. I definitely recommend this top!" —Jessica

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in sizes XS–2XL and 21 colors).

    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).

    22. A lightweight, oversized blazer — AKA your new go-to fall layering piece. Style it over a hoodie, a sweater, or a simple long sleeve for an instant fall upgrade.

    reviewer wearing with boots and a hoodie underneath

    Promising reviews: "I get so many compliments whenever I wear this coat. It always ties my outfits together and makes me feel spruced up. The weight is really versatile too! It was a godsend when I went to a convention in San Diego. I could wear it over my sleeveless dress in the air conditioning or outside walking by the water and feel very comfortable. I wore it over long sleeved shirts and sweaters with boots in the fall and winter and felt super cute. It's held up well and I couldn't be happier!" —Noneya

    Get it from Amazon for $45.99 (available in sizes XS–XXL and five prints).

    23. A stunning set of tortoise hoop earrings because they're ~super~ lightweight and will undoubtedly look INCREDIBLE with any outfit and other jewelry you pair them with.

    Ali Faccenda / BuzzFeed

    Machete is a woman-owned small business located in Atlanta 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.

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

    reviewer wearing the orange midi skirt

    Promising review: "Love the fit of this skirt! Material is soft and stretchy. The color is beautiful as well." —Amylia

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in sizes XS–L and in 22 colors). 

    25. A casual chiffon blazer in case your closet is begging for an evergreen outerwear staple. Blazers make EVERYTHING look better. Don't believe me? Style it over a graphic tee alongside a pair of jeans and then come talk to me (you're welcome).

    Simple Retro, Ali Faccenda / BuzzFeed

    Simple Retro is a women-owned brand that was created by a group of friends with a passion for thrifting and a common mission to create clothing that would be timeless beyond seasonal trends. They are based in NYC.

    This is my favorite blazer I own. It's so lightweight and the mobility in the sleeves and underarms is amazing. I tend to find a lot of blazers can be quite stiff across the back and in the underarms but this is a great summer into fall blazer option because it's not super heavy. The color is so gorgeous and works with basically everything in my closet.

    Get it from Simple Retro for $59.99 (originally $79.99; available in sizes XS–L).

    26. A flared drawstring skirt that's such an easy 'fit option when paired with a basic white tee and a cardigan layered on top. Throw on some booties and you've got a cute fall 'fit.

    reviewer wearing the dotted skirt

    Promising review: "This is a great skirt! I wore it on my birthday to a steakhouse and then to dancing, just changing my boots between occasions. I got a ton of compliments and I was super comfortable. I also love the versatility of this skirt. Mine is pulled up super high for my outfit, but the adjustable waist means you can wear it however you want!" —Mallory

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and in 28 colors).

    27. A silky scarf — perfect and versatile, and you can style it a ton of different ways. Wear it as a scarf, a headband, as a belt, and even wrapped around handles on your fave handbag for a colorful touch.,,

    Promising review: "I ordered this to use as a head scarf and it worked perfectly! it’s easy to style and I can see it being super versatile for different hairstyles, or even to accessorize an outfit. Doesn’t hurt that it can double as a mask if I forget mine when I’m going to the store and such." —Kayla

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99 (available in 43 patterns).

    28. A chic trench coat because you'll need a staple fall coat that'll work with both business casual looks AND with fancier outfits.,

    **Several reviewers note this can run a bit on the bigger side.

    Promising review: "This trench coat is well constructed and very high quality. It looks great over formal attire but can also elevate a casual look. It has a slightly loose fit as expected with this style but can be cinched with the belt. It’s light weight, ideal for spring or fall. Just enough to cut the chill and keep you dry in the rain, but not overly warm." —Ash

    Get it from Amazon for $70+ (available in sizes S–3X and two colors).

    29. A leopard print cardigan for looking super trendy over straight leg jeans or a classic t-shirt dress.,

It's definitely oversized, so order your normal size. I love the detail on the sleeves and the length is great. I'm tempted to buy the other colors now!" —Laura Chaffee

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and 15 colors).

    Reviewer wearing mint colored top

    35. 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

    Get it from Amazon for $25.49+ (available in sizes S–XL and 24 colors).

    38. A long-sleeved jumpsuit you can throw on and look like you spent oodles of hours styling (when in reality it took a whopping zero hours).

    Model wearing jumpsuit

    Promising review: "I love this jumper. Super comfy, perfect fit. The waist is a string tie (not elastic!), which I really like. Elastic waistbands can sometimes be too tight even on comfortable clothes so the string is great. The ankles and wrists are stretchy with the perfect amount of 'give' so I can get my feet and hands in and out easily. The fabric is lightweight and easy to move, dance, yoga in. Of course, it's a V-neck so I wear a cami, sports top or halter underneath. And pockets!" —Debbie

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in sizes S–XXL and 21 colors).

    39. A pair of fleece-lined faux leather leggings for a stylish BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY warm option that will keep you toasty and on trend.,

    Promising review: "I purchased these faux leather leggings during a late-night Amazon shopping spree. They don't look faux at all, are well-made, and I receive compliments on them every time I wear them. They are also extremely comfortable and fit like a second skin. They are super warm so I probably would not wear in warmer weather but are perfect for the fall and winter. They shape well and stay put! There is no rolling or slipping down with these babies. Put them on and they are going to stay where you put them. I love them!" —Kelly C. Albanese

    Get them from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in sizes XS–4X Regular and Tall and in six styles).

    40. A shimmering A-line skirt featuring accordion pleating so every spin is full of metallic, jaw-dropping goodness.

    A reviewer wearing the pleated skirt in green

    Promising review: "This is a beautiful skirt; it looks just like in the product photos. The fabric actually feels very luxurious, not thin as you might expect from the price. It was a tremendous bargain at the price I paid. I absolutely love it!" —Doctor G.

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in sizes XS—XL and 21 colors).

    Amazon / Via, Amazon / Via, Via

    Promising review: "Oh my goodness I love these pants so much! They are extremely comfortable — soft and stretchy fabric, elastic waistband, and gently tapered leg to give it some style without being too tight. I get tons of compliments when I wear them to work! I already have them in three colors, but honestly, am probably going to buy some more. These are the real deal!" —Chelsea

    Get them from Amazon for $17.84+ (available in sizes XS–3X, in sets of two, and 31 colors).

    42. A pair of knit jeggings with thousands of 5-star reviews that are as Hannah Montana would say, the best of both worlds. Jeans that are comfortable like leggings? *Adds to cart immediately*,

    Promising review: "I love, love, love these pants. I have them in the black and the dark blue wash. They go with everything and are so comfortable that I want to wear them everyday! I usually wear premium denim but I am reaching for these now. The price is definitely right at $20. They look good with boots, flip-flops, or tennis shoes. If you’re on the fence, get these." —DM Lover
