    1. An open front cardigan worthy of all the compliments it's bound to receive. Slipping this on over a wrinkled white tee and your most faded denim = upping your ~chic~ factor by about 97%. You can't argue with science.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this cardigan! The fabric feels thick, soft and warm yet the threads feel slightly silky. It is very well made and feels high quality and expensive. I have broad shoulders and a 40DD chest and this doesn't make me look boxy and bulky like some cardigans do. I'm in love! It comes down almost to my knees so it elongates my body as well! I feel so trendy when I wear this." —Jewel

    Get it from Amazon for $23.59+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 27 colors).

    2. A long-sleeved off shoulder top with so many 'fit possibilities that my head is spinning. Rest assured that regardless of if you wear this with jeans or a bodycon skirt, this loose-fitting bebe is comfy, comfy, comfy, and did we mention, comfy?


    Promising review: "It fit perfectly. I was concerned about it being short over my jeans but it wasn’t. I would definitely recommend purchasing." —Mrs J

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99+ (available in sizes L–4X Plus and two colors).

    3. A satin spaghetti strap dress because no, you do not want to go out tonight, but yes, you did RSVP last week. Presenting at least one less headache: this dress. It goes with every shoe and accessory, plus the material is comfortable and doesn't feel restrictive (despite the fact that it's a bodycon).

    Promising review: "I recommend 100%. I loved the fit and and was super comfortable. Got a lot of compliments about it and it was accurate on the size. Perfect!" —Cynthia Arizpe

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes XXL–4X and three colors).

    4. High-waisted leggings, aka the bread and butter of any WFH wardrobe. These provide awesome compression, come in a variety of fab solids and prints, *plus* have over 25,000 positive reviews.,

    Promising review: "These are the best pair of leggings I own, period. I've been a Fabletics fan for quite a while, but these are the new favorite. I'd say they're similar to the Lululemon Align, but that's not being fair to these leggings. The Lulus were not squat-proof, lighter weight, not a good fit, and didn't look good. These look amazing, feel amazing, and are squat-proof. I'll definitely be ordering more." —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $29.99 (available in women's sizes XS–XL and 26 patterns).

    5. A long-sleeved jumpsuit that requires absolutely 👏 no 👏 effort 👏. Finding a matching top and bottom before your morning cup of coffee? Inconceivable. Slip this cozy one-piece on instead.

    Model wearing jumpsuit

    Promising review: "I love this jumper. Super comfy, perfect fit. The waist is a string tie (not elastic!), which I really like. Elastic waistbands can sometimes be too tight even on comfortable clothes so the string is great. The ankles and wrists are stretchy with the perfect amount of 'give' so I can get my feet and hands in and out easily. The fabric is lightweight and easy to move, dance, yoga in. Of course, it's a V-neck so I wear a cami, sports top or halter underneath. And pockets!" —Debbie

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99 (available in sizes S–XXL and four colors).

    6. A polka-dot number best accessorized with bottomless mimosas served at the brunch you almost canceled on due to snoozing, overpriced avocado toast and a poached egg not required (but highly recommended).,

    Promising review: "Bought this for my Caribbean cruise in December, and I have worn it multiple times since then. It is comfortable, breathable — looks fantastic. I wear it alone with sandals or with tights and boots for winter." —Lua

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and 12 colors).

    7. High-waisted pants featuring snazzy (and adjustable) bow detailing by the ankles, aka you'll be able to slightly alter their silhouette. Keep 'em loose if you prefer more breeze or tighten them if you're a staunch skinny denim supporter.

    reviewer wearing the yellow pants

    Promising review: "Absolutely perfect! I ordered them in black for work pants but after getting them in I ordered them in multiple other colors because they are now my go to pants for going to work and going out 10/10 would recommend. I waited to make this review to be sure I could afford to buy all the colors I wanted first because I know this product will TAKE OFF when people try them on!" —Addison Stick

    Get them from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and 36 colors).

    8. A V-neck henley top so absurdly soft and comfortable, it'll likely replace all the pajama tops you've been sleeping in. *This* is so much better — and it can be worn out to dinner or for running errands? So much yes.

    reviewer wearing the black V-neck button up top

    Promising review: "One of the most comfortable shirts I ever purchased. I now have all the colors available. Only complaint isn’t I wish they had it in prints as well as solids!" —Karen

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes 1X-4X and in 11 colors).

    9. A supportive underwire bodysuit capable of making the word ~swanky~ come immediately to mind. Essentially, an addition like this to your wardrobe has the same energy as popping champagne or munching on caviar.,

    Promising review: "I purchased this body suit to wear to a concert and didn’t think I would ever wear it again, but I was PLEASANTLY shocked with how amazing it turned out. I have a larger bust but a smaller waist so I ordered a small, the fit was perfect. The straps adjust really well and everyone LOVED my outfit." —Hope Perkins

    Get it from Amazon for $18.88+ (available in sizes S–XL and in 11 colors).

    10. Baggy overalls that scream, "I'm taking a trip to the farmer's market and buying a dozen apples with the intention of baking an apple pie." Simply slip this on over a wrinkled tee and voila, you're ready to tackle the day.

    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).

    11. A chunky knit cardigan perfect for adding chic warmth to any 'fit. This basic layer has batwing sleeves and pockets, won't clash with anything in your wardrobe, and comes in a few colors (think, lots of neutral hues).,

    Promising review: "I love this sweater. It’s a true sweater, so it’s thicker than a light cardigan. It has an oversized fit with a drop sleeve and POCKETS! This will be so cute for the fall, winter, or spring." —Busy Mom

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and 19 colors/prints).

    12. A deliciously comfy crewneck sweater featuring my whole mood Monday through Friday. **stares at the 46,000 unread emails lying dormant in her inbox**

    model wearing white crewneck
    Nasty Gal

    Get it from Nasty Gal for $17.20 (originally $43, available in sizes 14–20). 

    13. Vibrant skinny jeans, stretchy hunks of denim praised by 6,000+ reviewers for comfort, versatility, and glove-like fit, aka these are the perfect daily go-to. 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.,

    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

    Get them from Amazon for $24.90+ (available in sizes 1–15 and in 14 colors).

    14. A plaid blazer jacket available in several neutral hues *and* the below red, ideal for adding a splash of fall-approved color (and sophistication) to the ensemble you wear eight days of the week: jeans, black booties, black sleeved top.

    Reviewer wearing the red tartan style blazer

    Promising review: "There was nothing not to like about the jacket. It looks great, fits great, and got many compliments. Glad I got it!!" —Connie C.

    Get it from Amazon for $45.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and seven colors).

    15. A swanky spaghetti strap cami likely the muse behind Rihanna crooning ~where have you been all my life~. If you've thrown your entire wardrobe onto the ground in pursuit of a decent top, this bb is here to save the day because at long last — a perfectly versatile dressy top is now yours.,

    Promising review: "This is a comfortable shirt for a night out! I love it so much, I bought it in another color and even sized down. The adjustable straps are a huge plus for me!! So cute and trendy." —Michelle K. Scott

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in sizes 4-14 and in 19 colors).

    16. A sleeved bodycon featuring drawstring ruching on each side, meaning that the length of this dress is — gird your loins — completely adjustable. Attempt to contain your excitement until you reach the end of this post please.

    reviewer wearing the black sleeved dress

    Promising review: "This dress is Amazon gold. I own this in several different colors and it’s a must have. The best fabric... it’s a stretchy material that is just amazing." —Aya Reimer 

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 17 colors). 

    17. 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).

    18. A high-waisted faux leather wrap skirt for a wardrobe staple that's great for team meetings, happy hours, and pretty much everything else in between. Now repeat after me: chic. Just add a basic top and you're good to jet.

    reviewer wearing the skirt

    Promising review: "This skirt is an amazing buy. The cognac color is pretty, the overlay is just right. The quality of the material is so good and better than I expected. The length goes to mid-calf for me and I got a size small." —Neressa Bacchus

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in six colors).

    19. 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. This makes any basic underlay look seriously chic.,

    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).

    20. 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). 

    21. A two-piece outfit that's essentially a gazillion options in one: wear this as a matching ensemble, throw on the sweater with workout leggings, pair the bottoms with your favorite band tee, and the list goes on.,

    Promising review: "I'm always kind of nervous to order clothes online because how never know what you're going to get. The fit, color, and fabric may be all wrong. I thought this was so cute though, so I thought I'd give it a shot and it didn't disappoint. I got the dark green color which is so pretty, plus it's so soft and comfortable. I may order more in different colors because it's so cozy." —Debi

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99+ (available in sizes S-3XL and in 18 colors).

    22. A sleeved bodycon because is 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). 

    23. A cutout tee, because this is equally as comfortable as your favorite sleeved basic but *le gasp* about 10x more trendy. Who should start a style blog? You.,

    Promising review: "Simple yet sexy off-the-shoulder black blouse. The shirt is true to size (I purchased a small) with extremely soft fabric. Definitely recommend air-drying this one after a wash." —Saint Kaid

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes XS-3X and in six colors).

    24. A stretchy crewneck mini for a fall-approved extension of your favorite tee (although you can wear it any season with the right layers, tbh). Raise your hand if you're ready to ditch the WFH joggers and give your shins a chance to breathe.

    reviewer wearing the black dress with sneakers

    Promising review: "This dress is so good that I’ve bought it in three different colors! I’m one of those people who find a dress or shirt that they love and have to buy it in multiple colors! This dress is definitely one of those! I wore it to a Carrie Underwood concert recently and it was perfect for the occasion, then I wore it for a girls' trip in California and it was great for that too. It’s a super versatile and comfy dress to wear." —Julie K.

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in sizes S-XL and in 33 colors).

    25. Track joggers, or I like to think of them as "everything the world needs in a pant". The tapered silhouette means they don't feel as bulky as your fleece pajama bottoms; the delightful material means you will feel equally snuggly with every click of the "skip intro" and every sporadic grocery run.

    model wearing the gray joggers

    Promising review: "These sweatpants exceeded my expectations for comfort, fit and softness... just exceptional." —FrequentEver

    Get them from Everlane for $58 (available in sizes XXS-XXL and in four colors).

    26. A tiered maxi with the word "layering" down to a science. Leather motos, denim jackets, plaid button-downs — the outerwear world is your oyster when combined with the neutral dress below.

    reviewer wearing the mushroom colored dress

    Promising review: "Love this dress. It fits perfectly and the fabric is soft and comfortable. Love that it has pockets! It’s the perfect summer dress but also great for fall with a jacket." —KB 

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

    27. A zippered cardigan and mini skirt to take away the monstrous headache that is having to match a top and a bottom before a Friday night out, a dinner in which you would have cancelled in a perfect world but... alas, you don't have the heart.,

    Promising review: "Absolutely in love with this brown set! I love that you can mix and match the top and skirt, as you can see on my picture I decided to combine the top with my oversized jeans and it looks amazing. Love the quality, the price, the color, how stretchy it is, as well as how great it feels on the skin." —Veronika Matsievich

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes S-L and in 19 colors).

    28. An ultra soft terry jumpsuit if you don't feel like digging through wardrobe (who has the time?) *and* don't want to wear a dress (what if there's a breeze?). Presenting this cozy one-and-done solution that also happens to be available in a perfectly autumnal hue.

    reviewer wearing orange jumpsuit with wide cropped leg silhouette

    Promising review: "It is nice and flow-y, looser fit and very comfortable for lounging or running errands. The fabric is heavy enough to not show underwear lines and lays/hangs well without being too heavy or hot. This is also work-appropriate for more casual jobs dressed up with a nice necklace, flats, and a jacket or blazer." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $23.59+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in five colors).

    29. 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).

    30. A racerback 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 this high-neck silhouette.

    Model wearing the brown top

    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).

    31. An off-shoulder blouse featuring a wrap waist and voluminous sleeves for THE party top of your dreams. Purchase this now now with the mindset that you'll be wearing it to every singly semi-fancy occasion henceforth.,

    Promising review: "This blouse is definitely a statement maker. I love how voluminous the sleeves are, it really adds so much drama to any outfit. The material is definitely thicker than expected but it makes it feel more luxe!" —Jessica Moore

    Get it from Amazon for $36.99 (available in sizes XS-XL and in six colors).

    32. A pair of fleece-lined faux leather leggings guaranteed to make you feel ~trendier than thou~ strutting to your corner deli. Pair these with any simple top to make it look as if you didn't snooze through your alarm this morning.

    reviewer wearing a band tee and the faux leather leggings

    Promising review: "I purchased these faux leather leggings during a late-night Amazon shopping spree. They don't look faux at all, are well-made, and I receive compliments on them every time I wear them. They are also extremely comfortable and fit like a second skin. They are super warm so I probably would not wear in warmer weather but are perfect for the fall and winter. They shape well and stay put! There is no rolling or slipping down with these babies. Put them on and they are going to stay where you put them. I love them!" —Kelly C. Albanese

    Get them from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes XS–4X Regular and Tall and in four styles).

    33. An off-shoulder jumpsuit because in the era that won't be named (*ahem* literally the one we are living in now), the impossible has happened: we've gotten sick of leggings. This simple number provides all the comfort from our once beloved staple but looks far more put-together.,

    It's a wide leg silhouette but, if you prefer a more fitted look, there's enough excess material to tie around your ankles (exhibit in the left photo above).

    Promising review: "I love this jumpsuit.The material is so soft and stretchy that I could probably sleep in it. I’ve gotten many compliments on it. and it's great for running errands, parties, even work if you pair it with a sweater or blazer. I’m so glad I purchased." —Hibah

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

    34. A longline plaid jacket that — what's that? Yes, it's layered over the pajama shirt you slept in. But will anyone notice? Absolutely not. Go about your merry way with this autumnal layer.

    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).

    35. A V-neck slit dress for a look that screams "I tried" but requires merely 10 seconds of effort. Throw this on, reach for a fedora or fasten a messy bun, and et voilà.,

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this dress! I am tall and it’s so hard to find anything that is a true maxi”length for my 5’11” frame. This dress comes to my ankles, flows beautifully, and the true wrap style is great. If you are tall you should definitely buy this dress!" —Jami

    Get it from Amazon for $32.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 21 colors).

    36. High-waisted palazzo trousers 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 stuffy black slacks. *shudders at the thought of wearing them*

    reviewer wearing the black pants

    Promising review: "These pants as so comfortable and flowy! I stepped outside of my usual skinny jean outfit to try this style, and I never want to take them off! They are great casual pants for work, and can be dressed up for the evening with a fancy shirt and heels. They are as comfortable as pajamas, without looking like it :)" —Nash

    Get them from Amazon for $23.18+ (available in sizes XS–3XL and 25 colors).

    37. A two-piece seamless activewear set making me want to go for a hike in the great outdoors — and I hate the great outdoors. This comfy 'fit is athleisure perfection: Throw it on with a denim jacket for errands, with a cardigan whilst working from home, and wear as/is for that 20-minute kickboxing video you *promise* you'll get to today.

    Promising review: "LOVE this set! I got it in dark gray. So much better than expected for such a great price. Nice and thick, stretchy material that does have some compression and is kind of smoothing for a super flattering look! It's also really comfy and squat-proof. True to size, too!" —elena

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99 (available in sizes S-L and in seven colors).
