    1. Classic ballerina flats so elegant, you'll half expect wearers to randomly burst out into "Swan Lake" choreography.,

    Promising review: "The more that you wear these shoes, the more comfy they become! I can walk around in them all day, and I get a ton of compliments on them. I usually feel frumpy wearing flats, but that's certainly not the case with these β€” I just ordered the beige color, and I might get the leopard print. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THESE SHOES!" β€”Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $10+ (available in sizes 5.5-11 and 25 colors).

    2. A stretchy velvet cami that is IT. And by "it", I mean that this is the perfect ~going out~ top that can be layered under a leather jacket or worn all on its own.

    Promising review: "Absolutely incredible value for this super soft cami! The velvet stretch is perfect for a looser fit. It's surprisingly well made, and I've seen versions of this camisole that cost well over $30." β€”Julie K.

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 13 colors).

    3. Basic skinny jeans you'll want to purchase along with some bread. This stretchy, comfy denim? It's smoother than butter.


    Promising review: "Super soft, lightweight and comfortable skinny jeans. Feels like you're wearing leggings but they look like regular jeans!" β€”Sbishop

    Get them from Nordstrom for $39 (available in sizes 24-34).

    4. A padded lace bralette that is guaranteed to become the most gorgeous thing to reside in your intimates drawer. Guaranteed.


    Get it from Aerie for $14.97 (originally $29.95, available in sizes XXS-XXL and in two colors).

    5. High-waisted leggings comparable to products from pricier brands, but that are significantly more affordable. Can we get a ROUND OF APPLAUSE?


    Promising review: "I never take the time to write reviews and I order off of Amazon all the time. I am a Lululemon fanatic and love their Align pants, but can't afford or rationalize buying tons of them. These remind me of the Align pant so much! They are cut almost identical, but the fabric is a little stiffer. But this isn't a bad thing; the Align pant is almost too buttery soft, and it pills and gets caught on everything. These have light compression, give a nice booty lift, and are not see-through...even when squatting. I love love love these and am going to order several more! I actually kind of want to cry thinking about how much money I wasted on leggings in the past when these are an excellent substitute for a fraction of the cost. If you're a Lulu lover, you should really give these a chance!" β€”Ariel Parker

    Get them from Amazon for $9.98+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 44 colors).

    6. Thick crew socks that will keep your piggies warm despite the frigid weather outside, best described as "my face hurts".


    Promising review: "Love these socks! They don't itch, plus they're warm and don't make my feet feel sweaty. Definitely ordering more!" β€”D. Lewis

    Get a pack of four from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in 15 colors).

    7. A double-breasted peacoat to keep you both warm **and** stylish this winter. Throw this over a wrinkled tee and BAM! You'll look polished.


    Promising review: "I absolutely adore this coat. Looks stylish and goes with almost any outfit. Definitely true to size." β€”DeRai

    Get it from Nordstrom for $37.90 (originally $58, available in sizes XS-XL and in four colors).

    8. Leg warmer cuffs you can pair with riding boots, because nothing says "fall outfit inspo courtesy of Spencer Hastings" quite like this combo.


    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    9. An envelope crossbody that is signed, sealed, delivered, and yours. This is the perfect purse for everything from running errands to date night.

Have had it on for six hours today and I forgot I had it on at all! I've been searching for a bra like this my whole life, even spending up to $100 for bras that weren't that great. I am going to get a different color every payday! I actually got a little teary-eyed after putting this on, that is how frustrated I had been with finding new bras." β€”Sjh

    Get it from Amazon for $19.49+ (available in sizes 34B-44H and in eight colors).

    12. A square neck midi skater dress ideal for that upcoming fancy schmancy event that you (unfortunately) RSVP'd to. I get it. You don't want to go. But AT LEAST you'll love your outfit!


    Get it from Boohoo for $17.60 (originally $44, available in sizes 2-12 and in nine colors).

    13. Mirrored sunglasses that can fool the world into thinking that you're actually trendy. Just slip these bad boys on whilst wearing that old gym tee β€” no one will ever know you're a fraud! No offense.

    Get it from Nordstrom for $49 (available in sizes XXS-XXL and in petite sizes and in eight colors).

    Promising review: "Love these pajamas and cant wait to get them in more colors. They are perfect, even in the winter β€” breathable even if you are a bit of a warm/sweaty sleeper.

The skirt fits so perfectly and is so great for curvy girls like myself!! The length is great, too. Definitely going to order this in more colors!" β€”kelssssss

    Get it from Free People for $50 (available in sizes 0-12 and in 24 colors).

    Get them from Nordstrom for $45 (available in three colors). ~

    27. A belt buckle fedora hat because "I didn't have time to wash my hair" days are inevitable. There's only so much dry shampoo a person can use...


    Promising review: "This is seriously a great find! I've been looking for a hat for a long time for an upcoming trip, and all the hats I've tried on were either too floppy, too small for my face, or just plain uncomfortable. The brim on this hat is a perfect size to keep the sun off your face and stays perfectly in place so it won't obstruct your vision! You can adjust the sizing using a ribbon hidden in the lining, making the fit perfect even for a windy day. Absolutely love this hat!" β€”Jess

    Get it from Amazon for $16.45 (available in 12 colors).

    28. A semi-sheer chiffon teddy so pretty, you'll be tempted to wear it outside in broad daylight. Cover this gorgeous thing up with a sweater and jeans? I think the heck NOT.

    Nasty Gal

    Promising review: "I bought these to wear for my trip to NYC, where I had planned on doing a lot of walking and I knew it was going to be raining. These blew me away! I was able to walk in them all day with no foot pain. After getting rained on (the patent leather kept them from being soggy) it felt like they stretched a bit. I added extra support insoles and they were even more perfect. They look cute with nearly everything and gave my small frame a little extra height." β€”courtbu

    Get them from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in sizes 5-9 and in four colors).
