    Get it from Asos for $40 (available in sizes 14–24). 

    2. An oversized knitted sweater vest for making the word "crisp" come to mind. Turtleneck weather is back, pets, and what better way to accessorize it than with the below? I'll be taking five. Thanks.,

    Promising review: "Love this! Well worth the price! I ordered a medium so that it wouldn’t be too oversized and look awkward. And it fits perfect!! I paired it with a white turtleneck underneath, but the options are limitless here. Was surprised at the quality of this’s very soft and thick. Which wasn’t what I expected at all. My only real complaint is the price of the item. However, this item is very trendy, so I understand. Would definitely, and might, buy again very soon!" —Amazon Customer

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

    3. An oversized flannel shirt jacket with pumpkin spice coursing through its veins and I am so frigggggggin' here for it. PSL forever, baby.

    4. A Levi's denim jacket lined with sherpa because — what's that? Did you hear that? The temps are dropping, and the leaves are falling? Autumn is practically here. Denim jacket season is knocking at your door. Snag one that's extra cozy (see below) in preparation.,

    Promising review: "This jacket is amazing. It is so comfortable and looks cute with every outfit! The sherpa lining is on the front and back torso plus the neck, and the sleeves have a different soft lining. Easy, comfortable, and cute!" —Eileen Eisen-Cohen

    5. Plaid knit leggings for a look that one-ups your favorite black yoga bottoms (but is still significantly more comfortable than any of the denim residing in your Ikea drawers).

    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 every day!

If you’re on the fence, get these." —DM Lover

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99 (available in sizes S–XL and in nine colors).

    8. A pair of high-rise Levi's for folks who have said so long and good riddance to the skinny denim of their past. These straight-leg jeans are comfy *and* made from 100% cotton for maximum retention.

    Reviewer wearing the brown plaid coat

    Promising review: "WOW! This blazer is incredible! It is not stiff like business blazers; it is actually really soft and moves easily. I really like how it is not really heavy and won’t overheat you. It hit just below my rear. I really am happy with my purchase, and I recommend wearing this in the spring or on windy days." —Fluff

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in sizes XXS–XXL and five colors).

    10. A faux suede mini skirt serving Big Fall Energy. Your outfit will have basically attained a Pinterest level of perfection — just add some boots and a bodysuit. Glass of apple cider in hand is optional but highly encouraged.,

    Promising review: "I love this skirt so much! I got a large (150 pounds, 5'4"), and it fits me perfectly. I've had this black skirt for around nine months now, and it has become a staple in my wardrobe! It has very VERY small pockets, but pockets nonetheless, and it's very comfortable. The zipper is high quality, the material feels expensive, and I haven't noticed any fabric shrinkage or color fading! For me it hits around mid-thigh." —liv

    Get it from Amazon for $13.21+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and in 21 colors).

    11. A rib-knit cardigan I am dubbing the "Taylor Swift" because there is no way her album wasn't inspired by the below. Prove me wrong in the comments.

    model wearing the cardigan

    Get it from H&M for $19.99 (available in sizes XS–XXL and in four colors). 

    12. A maxi shirt dress crafted from a blissfully lightweight material for "fall" days in which the temperature reads at sweating-profusely-degrees. This allows you to look autumnal as heck without having to suffocate your sweat glands.


    Promising review: "Lovely! It was a bit big in the midsection, but I bought it oversized on purpose. It looks great with my chunky and thin belts! It's perfect for all seasons. I intend on wearing it this summer and then adding leggings for fall." —AMA

    Get it from Amazon for $28.88 (available in sizes X–XXL and seven colors).

    13. A patchwork button-up if you love the look of denim but don't want to subject your shins and thighs to rigid cotton. Here's the answer.

    model wearing the denim shirt

    Get it from H&M for $34.99 (available in sizes L-4XL). 

    14. A mock neck bodysuit bound to be on constant rotation this fall. While this piece of clothing may not wear Uggs or guzzle down pumpkin spice, it still remains the perfect basic.

    reviewer wearing the bodysuit

    Promising review: "This is so soft and so comfortable. It’s the first bodysuit I’ve bought and I don’t know why I haven’t purchased these sooner, it’s amazing. I was worried about the snaps being uncomfortable, but you don’t even know they’re there. I also worried for the price if it might be see-through but it’s not at all. I’ll probably be buying this in every color." —MW 

    Get it from Amazon for $19.98 (available in sizes XS–XXL and in 31 colors). 

    15. An ultra-soft crewneck because spooky season is knocking out our door and the proper way to celebrate, of course, is by wearing sweaters emblazoned with pumpkins and ghosts. I don't make the rules here.

    Get it from SymbolicImports on Etsy for $22.39+ (available in sizes S–XXL and in six colors). 

    16. A fleece-lined sweater that provides so much room for activities. Activities in this scenario = it can be dressed up with high-waisted denim, a stylish fedora, and booties *or* dressed down with your $12 see-through leggings. The world is your oyster.


    Get it from Amazon for $29.95 (available in two colors, one size fits some).

    17. Baggy overalls that scream, "I'm taking a trip to the farmers market and buying a dozen apples with the intention of baking an apple pie." Will that apple pie ever get made? Absolutely not. But at least you looked cute during the thought.

    reviewer wearing the orange jumpsuit

    Promising review: "I am literally obsessed with these! I have been wanting to order overalls for a couple of years now. 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

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in sizes S–XXXL and in three colors).

    19. A two-piece set ideal for work-from-home days in which, wow, your schedule is crammed with deadlines. Throwing on a matching fall-friendly 'fit increases productivity by about 1,000%, and that's a real scientifically proven fact.,

    Promising review: "For those of you who like to go to Walmart in your PJs and flannel pants, order this set! You will still be comfy but look great. These sets are lightweight but not see-through. True to size without fitting skin tight. Extremely comfortable and versatile. Dress it up or down." —Mimi

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in sizes S–XXXL and in 29 colors).

    20. Elastic-waist faux-leather pants that look so. damn. chic. Mama loves comfy clothes that fool the masses into thinking I'm trendy (mama in this context = me), and these provide just that thanks to a bold burgundy hue.

    model wearing the red pants
    Lilly's Kloset

    Get them from Lilly's Kloset for $48 (available in sizes S-L). 

    21. A tiered baby doll mini taking a page from the Disney 365 book (if you know, you know) because it can truly be worn any day of the damn year. We love a piece that doesn't need to be vacuum-sealed with the change of season.,

    Promising review: "I love this dress! It fit perfectly! I am 5'10" and struggle finding dresses that are not 'too short.' This was a perfect length. The bottom half of the dress is lined, which makes it completely opaque. It is a thin material that makes steaming extremely easy and fast. I worn this to an Atlanta Braves game in 100-plus-degree weather and was able to keep cool. Perfect addition to my wardrobe." —karmen howard

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99 (available in sizes S–2XL and six colors).

    22. A waffle-knit set to sweeten cozy weekends spent scouring Netflix for yet another true crime docuseries. Forensic Files coupled with hot coffee, some snacks, and this comfy hunk of loungewear? My definition of bliss.

    reviewer wearing the grey set

    Promising review: "These are the cutest waffle-knit pajama sets! They’re so comfy, and the colors are on trend! These would make such a cute gift set for a group or for spring! I love the drawstring shorts!" —ClaireCumbee

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and in nine colors).

    23. A sleeveless wrap jumpsuit that doesn't have a favorite season. In fact, it loves to be worn throughout all of 'em: whilst stepping on crunchy fall leaves, to holiday parties with slingback heels, during romantic spring picnics in the park, and to summer weddings when the weather is best described as "hotter than Hades."

    model wearing olive green jumpsuit

    Promising review: "Love this jumpsuit! Great quality and so soft/comfy but not too thin. It's easy to get on and off which is a thing in jumpsuits LOL. Love the optional cleavage snap for daytime and there's plenty of bra strap coverage. Planning date night now!" —Marcia 

    Get it from Amazon for $59.90 (available in sizes XXS–3X and in two colors). 

    24. Track sweats reviewers swear are crafted with magic fabric that remains cool on summer-is-still-lingering days *and* warm on chilly fall ones. Hermione? Are you responsible for this?

    Promising review: "These are the best. They are soft and buttery and the comfiest pants I own. I’ve personally been wearing them after giving birth to my son and these have been a lifesaver. I have ordered to more colors! They are super soft but also lightweight! I live in Florida so I can wear these with a light T-shirt and not be sweating, or wear them with a hoodie on cooler days!" —FIU Student

    Get them from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes S–3X and 20+ colors and prints).

    25. A 100% wool sweater featuring an iconic collar, a guaranteed way to make you feel ~trendier than thou~ strutting to your corner deli. Throw on this cozy top to make it look as if you didn't snooze through your alarm this morning.

    Get it from Peppermayo for $68 (available in sizes 0-12 and in two colors).

    27. A batwing sleeve dress that rivals your favorite blanket for softness. Reviewers swear by the below for both comfort *and* style; just add some stilettos and jewelry to zhuzh it up for RSVP-requiring occasions.

    reviewer wearing a grey off shoulder dress

    Promising review: "Super cute, comfortable dress. Not too thick, but still warm. Comes with a little snap button and thread you can sew on the front chest area, in case you need to be sure nothing comes popping out!" —jessica 

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and in 13 colors).

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes S–XXXL and in 14 colors).

    31. A vegan leather jacket because while the masses can't stop raving about the LBD ("It's an essential!"), I would argue that there's an even more vital wardrobe staple out there: the black moto.

    model wearing the black jacket
    Blank NYC

    Get it from Blank NYC for $98 (available in sizes XS–L and in three colors). 

    32. A silky-and-stretchy cowl neck cami that'll answer your pleading prayers of finding *the* quintessential going out top. This is it, pets! Wear this for happy hour specials, slightly ritzy brunches, aaaand to Zoom meetings layered with a blazer. Perfection exists.

    Get it from & Other Stories for $49 (available in sizes XS–L and in five colors). 

    35. Levi's ribcage straight jeans that come up to — as the name would imply — your ribcage. These are ideal for anyone who prefers truly high-waisted denim. None of that "comes up underneath my belly button" nonsense.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed, Levi's

    Promising review: "I am an exclusively high-waisted bottoms person. No ifs, ands, or but(t)s about it, I refuse to wear anything else. I have some high-waisted jeans I love, but both pairs really just come up to my belly button, and it'll sometimes pop on out if I'm wearing a crop top. No biggie, but I was looking for a pair that came up FURTHER. So I went into Levi's last year and tried on just about every "high rise" pair in the store. Seriously. And these straight ribcage jeans were just the ticket. Stiff enough to look like jeans instead of jeggings, a slight crop and straight hem at the bottom to differentiate from my skinny jeans, and a SUPER-HIGH rise. Like my belly button is a full inch below the top of the jeans. It takes me a minute to get into them and button the button-fly, but that's what ensures a nice fit for my waist-to-hip ratio, which *usually* results in the dreaded WAIST GAP. I love the color and the level of distressing (aka not much), and they make me feel like a ~cool girl~ when I really just about never feel like one. If you're looking for super-high-waisted jeans that still...feel like jeans, I 100% recommend these." —Maitland Quitmeyer, BuzzFeed Staff

    Get them from Levi's for $98 (available in sizes 23–32, two lengths, and seven colors).

    36. An oversized corduroy shirt you can throw on and presto! You'll suddenly look as if you exude sophistication and professionalism, even if the reality is that you snoozed through your alarm and were almost late for a virtual meeting. Again.

    model wearing the nude shirt
    Frank and Oak

    Get it from Frank and Oak for $99.50 (available in sizes XXS–XL and in three colors). 

    37. A cable-knit two-piece set that will make rewatching The Vampire Diaries for the 90th time this year feel like, well, a luxurious experience. Matching loungewear = a foolproof way to feel fancy.,

    Promising review: "I love this outfit! It's beautiful and perfect for all weather. It's warm and hasn't fallen apart on me even though it's made of yarn. I would suggest this set to anyone." —Dominique

    Get it from Amazon for $23.59+ (available in sizes S–L and 20 different styles of sets).

    38. A mock neck blouse worthy of allll your drool, with the pièce de résistance here being stunning embroidered sleeves that look like a work of a-r-t.

    reviewer wearing the top with lace sleeves

    Promising review: "I am absolutely thrilled with this top and am now looking to get it in the other color options. It fits perfectly and is so beautiful. It’s very versatile and can be dressed up or down depending on your style. I chose to wear an all black ensemble with a red lip to really let the sleeve detail pop. One of the most elegant tops I’ve ever purchased!" —Zach and Lorine

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes L-4X and in two colors).

    39. A sleeved bodycon because there anything more autumnal than a high-neck, ribbed, and sleeved dress rolled into one? I think not. Throw in an orange hue and OTK boots and a phantom scent of pumpkin spice will follow you to the ends of the earth.

    reviewer wearing orange dress with over-the-knee boots

    Promising review: "This is the perfect dress for autumn photos and everyday wear! So comfortable and fits beautifully! This is a closet staple you need." —Sharon S. 

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and in nine colors).
