    Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in eight colors).

    10. A ribbed turtleneck so buttery soft and cozy, you'll probably be wearing it from now until next spring (when overbearing humidity will force you to finally give it a break). To sweeten the deal even more, it's also 40% off!?!


    Get it from Nordstrom for $17.40 (originally $29, available in sizes 1X-4X and in four colors).

    11. A spaghetti strap midi dress you can wear with any of the shoes, purses, and jewelry currently cluttering your closet. The best part about this little number is just how ~plain~ it is, which means you'll be able to doll it up exactly to your liking.,

    Promising review: "This dress is so cute! It really hugs and accentuates your curves, the fabric is super soft (almost fleece-like on the inside), is not see-through at all, and is so comfy I could literally sleep in it. I bought it for NYE but 10/10 would wear for any occasion." β€”Julianne

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    12. A jersey swing tee capable of being worn with anything. Pair with jeans for a casual movie date, under a blazer for the meeting that could have been an email, with a black leather skirt for the birthday dinner you've sadly agreed to attend, and so on.

    Promising review: "The cut is nice, the bottom is loose and flowy, the sleeves don't cut into my arms, and the neck line falls far enough from my neck that I don't feel like I'm choking. PLUS, the material is amazingly soft and good quality (not see-through at all)." β€”Ashley

    Promising review: "I rarely write reviews for anything, but this shirt is amazing! I cannot believe this cost $20! The softness and quality of the material is top notch. The fit is perfect, love the thumb holes, pouch pocket and hood/neckline. I definitely plan to buy this shirt in more colors." β€”FMN

    Get it from Amazon for $20 (available in sizes XS-XXL and in seven colors).

    14. A sparkly surplice top that everyone (and probably their mother) will be asking to borrow after you post a NYE pic. Personally, I hate to share. I wouldn't blame you for making up some excuse and saying no.

    Forever 21

    Get it from Forever 21 for $25 (available in sizes 1X-3X and in two colors).

    15. A graphic tee so great, one might say that it's *ahem* out of this world?


    Get it from ModCloth for $25 (available in sizes XS-4X).

    16. TSLA leggings comparable to bottoms from much more expensive brands. Not only are these high-waisted leggings super comfortable, but they've also got pockets and aren't see-through. Can all of their other leggings say the same? I think not.


    Promising review: "I never take the time to write reviews and I order off Amazon all the time. I am a Lululemon fanatic and particularly love the Align pant (which retails for $85+) but can't afford or rationalize buying tons of them. I'm always on the hunt for a good yoga pant and I found these the other day and ordered them in size small, and these remind me of the Align pant so much! They are cut almost identical, but the fabric is a little stiffer. This isn't a bad thing; the Align pant is almost too buttery soft and it pills and gets caught on everything. There is slight compression with these and mine aren't see-through (even when squatting). I love love love these and am going to order several more. I actually kinda want to cry thinking about how much money I wasted on the pants at when these are an excellent substitute for a fraction of the cost." β€”Ariel Parker

    Get them from Amazon for $12.98+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 43 colors).

    17. A V-neck tunic you can easily dress up with wedges and dress down with sandals. I’m pretty sure this should be a visual aid next to the dictionary definition of β€œversatile”.

    Promising review: "Love this shirt! I bought it in all colors available because it's sooooo comfy and flowy!!! I just love it! The material is so soft, too." β€”Lind

    Get it from Amazon for $17.56+ (available in sizes 1X-4X and in six colors).

    18. Stretchy mid-rise skinny jeans that look like your typical hunk of denim but are actually even more comfortable than your favorite leggings. And no button digging into their belly button? Halle- and I cannot stress this enough -lujah.


    Promising review: "These are extremely comfortable. They are thinner than your typical denim jeans, but they are softer than most and hug my curves in all the right places." β€”A.K.

    Get them from Amazon for $19.20+ (available in sizes 0-17 and in six colors).

    19. A velvet bralette and shorts for anyone looking to lounge in luxury! Your weekend-long conspiracy-theory-videos-on-YouTube binge can now be considered a fancy occasion. Chocolate on your pillow sadly not included.


    Promising review: "Super soft and comfy! I wear this set so often that I’m probably going to buy more. It's made from a great material, the lace isn’t scratchy at all, and it's survived quite a few washes and there isn’t any fraying." β€”Carly Evanson

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and in 23 colors).

    20. A ruffle midi skirt so trendy, it's practically a requirement to have a photo shoot whilst wearing it. *proceeds to post #ootd on the 'gram* *immediately gets 50k new followers*,

    Promising review: "Obsessed with this skirt! Shipping was quick, the material has a silky feel, the slit shows the perfect amount of skin, and the ruffles make it so fun!" β€”Yarissa

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 10 colors).

    21. A henley tunic that can be tucked into high-waisted jeans, worn over their most see-through leggings, or donned with a leather skirt. Do you see a pattern here? Versatility. Versatility is the pattern.


    Get it from Nordstrom for $24.90 (originally $42, available in sizes XS-XXL and in five colors).

    22. A belted sweater dress because the weather outside is frightful, and what better way to celebrate the sun disappearing by 5PM than by wearing this cozy-yet-also-dressy piece?,

    Promising review: "This dress is perfect! It fits like a glove and the tie really emphasizes your waist. It’s snug but in a perfect way. I bought this as an option for a holiday party and although I chose a different outfit, I still decided to keep this over returning it because it’s so cute and flattering! Also the color and material are great for year round wear. I want more!" β€”Anonymous

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 18 colors).

    23. A classic collar sweater perfect for mornings when you've rolled out of bed super late, looking like a mess, and SURPRISE! You need to be at work in ten minutes but don't want to compromise coziness.

    Promising review: "I love this sweater! It's super soft, drapes really nicely, and fits perfectly. And even though it's super comfortable, the collar gives it a polished look!" β€”Joanna Alper

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

    24. Wide leg pants that look significantly more put-together than your favorite pair of leggings, but these palazzo bottoms have a secret...they're actually made from a soft knit material comfy enough to sleep in. This means = you'll be able to wear this with both your highest heels and bunny-shaped house slippers.


    Get them from Amazon for $21.83+ (available in sizes S-XL and in petite lengths).

    25. A t-shirt dress so ridiculously soft, your body will feel as if it's being enveloped by a fluffy cloud made of kittens and other ridiculously cute baby animals. Plus, this cozy maxi is the perfect thing to dress up or down.

    Pair this with booties, a leather jacket, and some statement earrings for an outfit that is both trendy and comfy.

    Promising review: "This is SO CUTE! I can’t wait to wear it this this summer. Many have said they used it as a swimsuit cover up, but I will definitely be wearing this as a casual maxi dress! The material is slightly silky and very substantial β€” definitely more substantial than just a cover up. You can even tie up the front into a knot for a cute hi-low look. Just make sure to size up for a more relaxed fit!" β€”Richie P.

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 30 colors).

    26. A bodycon midi dress you'll want to re-wear twice in one month. Facebook pictures be damned, because you'll be wearing this to every single party you have coming up in the foreseeable future.,

    Promising review: "This dress is super elegant! It's perfect for a dinner date, but I can also see myself wearing this to the office. I love the shoulder details, since you can tie the straps yourself and adjust to your liking." β€”Elizabeth Tran

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in sizes XS-L and in five colors).

    27. A wrap over blouse with a floral design to make it feel like spring all πŸ‘ year πŸ‘ long πŸ‘. Take that, cold weather blues.


    Get it from Asos for $14 (originally $40, available in sizes 12-20).

    28. A soft graphic tee you can pair with your favorite leggings or high-waisted denim for a lived-in look that screams "I am a vintage connoisseur". This top can totally pass as something from 1977.

    Promising review: "Love this shirt! I am a sucker for great Star Wars t-shirts, so I saw this one and had to have it. Great quality, very comfortable, and fits well!" β€”Jennifer

    Get it from Amazon for $13.60+ (available in sizes S-5X and in four colors).

    29. Ruffle hem leggings here to squash the debate of whether or not leggings are pants: These are clearly pants. The kind you can wear on a night out.

    Promising review: "These pants are so cute! I love the stretchy material, and the cute ruffles at the hems make it look different. They are a bit high-waisted, which I love, and they're opaque enough so you're sure your underwear won't peek through. You can easily just slip these on, and you'll be good to go! Plus, they're very comfortable and fit true to size." β€”Corinth

    Get them from Amazon for $7.89+ (available in sizes XS-L and in three colors).

    30. A V-neck belted jumpsuit perfect for any time, any place, and any location. Pair it with sneakers for more casual affairs, or throw on some heels for fancier occasions.,

    Promising review: "Bought to wear for a friend’s rehearsal dinner. You can dress it up or down with accessories and the type of shoes. Fits perfectly and looks just like the photo." β€”sarah

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in sizes XS-XL and in 19 colors).

    31. A fitted turtleneck available in the only hue they'll want in their closet: black. This ultra versatile piece is plain enough to be worn casually but can easily be dressed up by a pair of heels, good denim, and the statement earrings they purchased on clearance but have yet to wear.


    Promising review: "Great top for a great price! This pullover top is as soft as can be, fits perfectly, and is very comfortable to wear." β€”Chris

    Get it from Amazon for $19.90 (available in sizes XXS-XL and in three colors).

    32. A sleeved tee featuring faux suede elbow patches that make it look *way* more sophisticated and fancy than it actually is.


    Promising review: "Love this shirt! The material is soft and more like a heavy duty cotton without being sweatshirt heavy. Plus, the buttons and elbow patches add a special touch." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $8.49+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 14 colors).

    33. A cowl neck sweater complete with an asymmetrical hem and pockets, the latter detail being the only thing you *really* need to know.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in sizes S-XXXL and in 10 colors).

    34. High-waisted ponte knit leggings complete with pockets on the backside, which basically means that these are equally as dressy (+ thankfully a lot more comfy) than your work slacks.


    Promising review: "I love these leggings! They are a good ponte weight legging with thick material that looks professional enough for my casual office workplace. I wish there were other colors." β€”Chardrew

    Get them from Amazon for $14.14+ (available in sizes 1X-7X and in three colors).

    35. A crewneck dress with pockets (!!!!) that will basically feel like an extension of your coziest, most beloved sweatshirt. Just pair this with some over-the-knee boots to become the epitome of ~fashun~.


    Promising review: "Welcome to comfort city. If you're looking to wear what I believe clouds made into clothing would feel like, well then you have arrived. Just add some leggings, cute boots, and a jazzy scarf, and it will look like you kind of tried for the day whilst feeling like you're wearing PJs. AND IT HAS POCKETS!" β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $7.41+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 40 colors).

    36. A patterned midi skirt that is the dictionary definition of put-together. Like, who took the time to eat breakfast, clean their apartment, do their whole skincare routine, *and* take the time to pick out an A+ outfit before work this morning? You!,

    Promising review: "I love this skirt! The coffee color is perfect for Fall and you can pair it with a sweater for those colder days. I can easily transition this for warmer weather with a simple t-shirt. Love the fit and love the pockets!" β€”tiaalesewong

    Get it from Amazon for $15.96+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in six colors).

    37. A cocktail dress for anyone ready to retire their current Little Black Dress. It's been 84 years, and it's time to move on...mostly because you've worn your old one to the last 17 events you've attended (as evident by your Instagram).

    Promising review: "What can else can I say except I LOVE THIS DRESS?! I haven't had much luck ordering dresses lately, and I had been searching for a cute LBD to wear to a Mardi Gras-themed party with no luck UNTIL THIS DRESS! I went up a size and it fit amazingly. The material itself is thick and amazing and has a BIT of stretch to it, so I didn't even need to use the zipper." β€”Claire Karol

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

    38. A muscle tank you can layer under a cozy sweater, a fitted blazer, *or* wear by its lonesome. TLDR; this elevated basic is a staple that belongs in every single closet.

    40. A sleeved top you won't have to worry about re-tucking into your jeans because SURPRISE! It's a bodysuit and therefore won't budge, not even if you're wearing *gulp* low-rise denim.,

    Reviewers suggest going up a size for the perfect fit!

    Promising review: "I LOVE THIS BODYSUIT SO MUCH!!! I spent hours looking for something similar until I stumbled upon this. It fits perfectly, isn’t expensive, and looks cute with anything." β€”Melanie

    Get it from Amazon for $9.39+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 18 colors).

    41. A side slit tunic top that's slightly longer in the back, meaning they can rock their see-through leggings with ease knowing that the color of their underwear will remain anonymous to the world.


    Promising review: "This is so soft and very comfortable! It also washes very well." β€”love kindel

    Get it from Amazon for $20.85 (available in sizes XS-XXXL).

    Promising review: "I bought this dress on a whim because I needed a plain black dress. I spent a few hours at the mall trying to look for something like this before giving up and ordering this one hoping it would be ok. Well, it has surpassed my expectations! This dress is a thick, cottony soft, flowy material, is so flattering, and it does not wrinkle easily." β€”T.Fia

    Get it from Amazon for $17.85+ (available in sizes S-XL and in five colors).

    43. A V-neck tunic top that is super simple and super basic, which is something that *no* closet can never have enough of (it's also available in several neutral colors that one can't go wrong with gifting).

    Get it from Amazon for $18.95 (available in sizes S-XL and in six colors).

    44. A crewneck jumpsuit designed with POCKETS, which is all you really need to know. Forget your purse at home, folks, because you've now got a new place to store wrinkled receipts and lip balm tubes.,

    Promising review: "I'm getting ready for a cruise and I've been looking for some cute and easy outfits to bring with me. I love that I can dress this up or down, and that I can wear it with a normal bra. So excited to wear this on my vacation!" β€”M. D.
