    1. An essential cropped tank that has most likely been blessed by a fairy godmother, because this takes your basic cami and goes *poof.* An instantly chic upgrade is yours for the taking due to this high-neck silhouette.

    2. A simple satiny button-up with the ability to make light-wash jeans look chic. The secret sauce is in the fabric, which delivers a luxe ensemble that only looks expensive.

    3. A bustier crop top that's designed with boning for support (*cough* no bra required here), adjustable straps, and a whisper of stretch, so that the below feels as if it were tailored to your exact measurements.

    4. A midi wrap skirt that one must simply pair with a white tank and sandals (read: leather jacket optional but highly recommended) to convince your friends that you did not sleep in this morning.

    5. A breathable button-up shirt you'll quickly consider a jack of all trades. Beach getaway? Layer this over a bikini. Office meeting? Pair this with slacks. The world is truly your oyster with this reliable basic.

    6. A pair of high-waisted flares for a fashion-forward improvement to the ankle-suffocating leggings you've been wearing since, well, forever. These are both buttery soft and chic as heck.

    7. A sleeved off-shoulder bodycon because you may have been invited to a champagne-sipping event, but your budget is more like the $2 beer special. This number looks expensive but is actually quite affordable.

    8. A checkered blazer you can throw on over a pajama tee and *bam* — a style blog awaits. This is the perfect layer for when you want to look dressed up, but don't want to exert that level of effort.

    9. A cocktail dress for twirling it up on the dance floor, even if the wedding DJ seems to think that playing "Cotton Eyed Joe" was a solid choice.

    10. A drawstring romper with all the comfort of the pajama set you've been wearing to bed since 1993, but it's not fuzzy fleece rubber duck pajamas and ergo a *lot* more chic.

    11. A two-piece set that you'll dub "vacation brunch attire," aka an outfit you'll want to wear for vacation mimosas. Slipping on this cropped top and flowy skirt has a 100% effectiveness rate at getting you no less than one million compliments.

    12. A puff-sleeve baby doll dress to be worn to the most glamorous event of your week (read: drinking sangria from pitchers and eating fried chicken and waffles with your pals).

    13. A two-piece yoga set that you'll wear with alarming frequency. Think: every. Single. Day. This legging and sports bra combo provides light compression and looks casual chic à la the matchy-match design.

    14. A ruffle hem romper that's capable of making you swoon every time you pass a mirror. Ideal for casual brunches and fancy affairs alike, this is bound to become your new favorite warm weather piece.

    15. A sleeveless swing mini for impromptu bottomless brunches with le pals, grocery store runs, fancier dinners (simply add in some heels), etcetera. Versatility is this dress' strongest suit.

    16. An open-front blazer that you can consider step one in building out a versatile dinner date wardrobe. It's the crème de la crème of closet staples due to its witchy ability to make any ensemble (from band tees to ripped denim) look put together in an instant.

    17. A V-neck lace-trimmed cami that's guaranteed to become your new IT top. And by IT, I mean this is your new official go-to top — the kind of gorgeous thing that pulls through when you have five minutes to get ready and no patience to dig through your wardrobe.

    18. A high-waisted palazzo trouser for a wardrobe staple that's great for team meetings, happy hours, and pretty much everything else in between. Now repeat after me: chic.

    19. A boyfriend blazer in a stunning spring-ready ivory hue — and I hope my math is right here, but this blazer + literally a pajama shirt = a chic look that takes two seconds to conjure up.

    20. A pair of high-waisted shorts with an elastic waist that means ::les gasp:: you'll actually be able to exhale without feeling cold metal dig into your belly button. These comfy hunks of denim mold to your curves perfectly for a glove-like fit.

    21. A crewneck plain white tee that's about to bust into its own rendition of "Hey There Delilah." Just kidding. On a serious note, this hunk of lightweight Madewell cotton is super comfortable *and* goes with any bottom.

    22. A sleeveles tank made from magically soft cotton that has a little extra ~va va voom~ via the swanky shoulder pads. I declare this top *the* perfect thing to throw on for Zoom meetings because it's slightly more dressy than your regular cami but equally as comfortable.

    23. A bodycon mini dress with a strappy back and two massive perks: Not only does it look like a guaranteed 400,000 followers on Instagram (you blogger you), but the adjustable ties allow you to customize your perfect fit. No trip to the seamstress required.

    24. A skinny jean that's voted most likely to star in Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. These stretchy hunks of denim are praised by 5,000+ reviewers for comfort, versatility, and a glove-like fit — plus, these are *truly* high-waisted. None of that fake "high rise" nonsense where you feel like your underwear is constantly on the brink of being exposed.

    25. An off-shoulder jumpsuit made from a breathable, lightweight fabric that won't cling to your upper thighs the second the temps and humidity rise. Annnd a drawstring waist for an hourglass silhouette is the cherry on top of a perfect wardrobe sundae.

    26. A mockneck top that's destined to solve all your last-minute outfit dilemmas. This is basically a plain tee dressed up by way of trendy prints, which makes it an instant (but comfortable) upgrade that can zhush up your most faded denim in seconds.

    27. A pair of baggy overalls (with pockets!) for anyone who detests having to scrounge up a matching top and bottom, AND wants to look Instagram-worthy in their loungewear. All you'll have to do is slip this on over a bralette *or* a sleeved tee and you're set.

    28. An off-the-shoulder jumpsuit that reviewers are lauding for being ultra comfortable and stretchy, yet somehow... extremely polished and put-together? Behold! Proof that miracles truly exist.

    29. A ribbed knit pencil skirt that looks so. Damn. Chic. Mama loves comfy clothes that fool the masses into thinking I'm trendy (mama in this context = me), and this skirt provides just that.

    30. A mesh sleeved corset that's beckoning you to add it to that Amazon shopping cart, stat. This fitted top tucks perfectly into your high-waisted leather skinnies *and* fancy skirts.

    31. A V-neck jumpsuit that requires absolutely 👏 no 👏 effort 👏. Finding a matching top and bottom before morning meetings is, as you know, basically impossible, so we suggest slipping this cozy one-piece on instead.

    32. A one-shoulder maxi featuring a lovely floral print that demands to be worn to all the outdoor brunches you're about to attend. Spring has sprung, folks, and your wardrobe should reflect that.

    33. A ruched lantern-sleeve top with the words "fancy brunch during a tropical vacation" written all over it. All that's missing is sea-salty hair, rosy cheeks, and perhaps a straw crossbody bag that is somewhat impractical but looks très trendy.
