    Promising review: "I ordered this because The Great Gatsby is my favorite book, and I really wanted another crewneck pullover. My god, I was so pleased!! The color is a slightly washed-out looking blue and has a graphic of the vintage cover, which makes this sweater look super cool. I've never worn anything so soft in my life, and I love the little tag that came on the sweatshirt. It is high-quality, worth the price, and I haven't worn this a single time without getting a handful of compliments. I love it!" —Em

    Promising review: "This fits perfectly and is completely waterproof: it kept me dry in a heavy storm the other day when I didn't have an umbrella. The gingham trim is cute, the belt gives the coat a flattering silhouette, and the hood can snap off." —Melissa

    Get them from Amazon for $79. Sizes: S-3X. Available in three colors.

    18. High-waisted leggings that won't yell "SHE'S WEARING POLKA DOT GRANNY PANTIES!" to the entire world.

    They have pockets, by the way.

    Promising review: "FINALLY!! Workout leggings with POCKETS!! No more tucking my phone into my bra or dropping it on the treadmill I can't say one bad thing about these leggings. The price is fantastic (you're getting WAY more than what you're paying for), they're not see-through, and don't lose their stretch. Plus, they're thick and give enough compression to minimize jiggle. I wear a size 20 in pants, and the 2XL fit perfectly — I love them so much, I'm buying a few pairs just in case they stop making them." —Kgirlg

    22. A marled knit sweater for anyone who wishes sweater weather lasted 364 days a year.

    Maybe it would be okay if ONE day was reserved for...I don't know...a dress. But the rest of the year should be solely for sweaters.

    Get it from Torrid for $41.17 (originally $54.90).

    23. A faux leather moto jacket with a strange Drake obsession. It's constantly saying that it's the moto baby, yolo.
