    Promising review: "I really love the fit of these tanks on me. They are a super soft thick but breathable material. I have ordered multiple colors at this point and have paired them in so many different ways. I love to wear them with long skirts for a more dressed up look. They look great with shorts in the warm weather. I get hot very easily and although the material is warmer I was super comfortable! These will be great for winter time in New England as well because the fabric is thicker and comfortable! These tanks are a good length and go great tucked in or over your bottoms." —Ashley Bonnett

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and 13 colors).

    4. Medium-weight ankle pants that laugh in the face of business casual's past with a cinched waist, wide-leg silhouette. Translation: These are comparable to leggings in comfort but still allow you to retire those black slacks. *shudders at the thought of wearing them*

None of that fake "high rise" nonsense where you feel like your underwear is constantly on the brink of being exposed.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have NEVER owned a pair of high waisted jeans because they're always either way too big in the waist or way too small on my hips/thighs. Actually, I have never owned a pair of jeans without needing to also wear a belt. But these are absolutely amazing. Literally fit like a glove without the need for a belt. Best jeans ever." —Lily

    Promising review: "Oh. My. Gosh. These jeans are incredibly, incredibly amazing. I have a very hourglass shape and I've looked, and looked, and looked for high-waisted bellbottoms or flares that would fit me for about two months and had no success.... until I found these. Not only did these jeans button with absolutely zero fuss, they slid up my legs and over my thighs like they were hand tailored to me.

    Promising review: "I order a lot of dresses of this type and by far, this is the best brand when It comes to consistent quality.

I thought this was a cute way to wear them without trying to look too young. Spot on. I actually bought it as my lounging outfit. With all this time being spent at home with the recent crisis, I wanted something comfortable but cute so I’m not in sweats all day. Thinking about getting a couple of other colors. I would totally wear these out and about." —WamQQk

    Promising review: "I am in love with this dress! I have never gotten so many compliments on an outfit before. It is gorgeous and fits perfectly. The material is very comfortable and is not see-through at all where the lining is. I’m wearing a nude-colored bra since the top eyelets are not lined but there are no visible bra lines through the dress. I’m wearing it with sandals for a more beachy and casual look but I think this could also be dressed up with heels or wedges. I think this dress is versatile, absolutely the cutest thing, comfortable, and affordable." —Rachel Warwick
