    reviewer wearing the matching black tank and shorts

    Promising review: "PERFECT and wish I ordered every color at once but happy with my cream color for sure and makes me look super tan. The bra is true to size and shorts aren’t booty shorts so you feel held in and secure to do actual workouts. I removed the bra pads for personal preference." —Amanda

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

    2. 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).

    3. Elastic waist faux leather shorts 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.

    Promising review: "These faux leather shorts are a must have! Very stylish and comfortable. Great price and quality all in one. Love the length. They are not too long or short. Functional drawstring, functional pockets." —Ely

    Get them from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes XS-XL).

    4. Vibrant skinny jeans voted most likely to star in Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. These stretchy hunks of denim are praised by 5,000+ reviewers for comfort, versatility, and glove-like fit — 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).

    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. Stretchy ankle length pants so comfortable-yet-dressy that make them suitable for yoga, errands, *and* going out to dinner. Read my lips: versatility.,

    Promising review: "I really like these! They are so comfortable and stretchy, but look professional. They are the perfect high-waisted look I wanted for work. Very happy with my purchase. I even ordered another pair in a different color and love those as well!" —Melodie

    Get them from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and 40 colors).

    7. 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.

    reviewer wearing the black sleeved top

    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).

    8. 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+ 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).

    9. A 100% cotton crew tee because life's too short to not hop in on the tie-dye trend. It's everywhere, you can't help but be enticed, and this cozy number means an easy, comfy way to add a pop of pattern to your wardrobe.

    the pink cotton tee

    Get it from Lively for $45 (available in sizes S-L).

    10. A ruffle hem romper capable of making you swoon every time you pass a mirror. Ideal for casual and fancy affairs alike, this is bound to become your new favorite warm weather piece.,

    Promising review: "This is probably my favorite romper to date! You can dress it up with heels, wedges, or make it a more casual outfit with a cute jean jacket and white sneakers." —Farzad Ezami

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in five colors).

    11. A ribbed knit pencil skirt — the free gift with purchase here being immediate Instagram fame. This is far too trendy to be worn without photographic proof tbqh.

    reviewer wearing the skirt

    Promising review: "Love the fit of this skirt! Material is soft and stretchy and the ribbed pattern is very flattering. The color is beautiful as well." —Amylia

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes XS-L and in 21 colors).

    12. A zippered cardigan and mini skirt you can consider a trillion outfits in one. Pair the top with high-waisted denim or black leggings, the skirt with a plain tee and blazer...the list is endless and exhaustive, so I'll leave the rest up to your imagination.,

    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).

    13. A V-neck tunic top reviewers can't stop raving about due to how soft, flowy, and versatile it is. Now that we are adults (yes I'm talking directly to you), 'tis time to finally replace the Twilight tee we've been wearing during errands since '07.

    reviewer photo of model wearing the olive green t-shirt

    Promising review: "I love these shirts! So far I have five, each in a different color. The material is soft and they fit true to size. The length is perfect to wear with leggings. Great fit, great color, great material, great price!" —Jennifer

    Get it from Amazon for $10.01+ (available in sizes L-5X and in 42 colors).

    14. A mini dress with a tried-and-true wrap silhouette, which means you'll be able to customize the waistline for that perfectly tailored ~like a glove~ fit. We love clothes that feel like they were made just for us, amirite?,

    Promising review: "I was initially so confused by this beautiful dress as I have never had a true wrap dress!!! Then luckily I re-checked the listing here and saw the seller’s very helpful instructions for how to tie a wrap dress and now realize that my usual size L here fits PERFECTLY. I highly recommend both this gorgeous dress and, for wrap dress newbies like me, following the very helpful guide the seller has posted!" —Mother of LEGOS

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 16 colors).

    15. A mockneck top destined to save your last-minute outfit on multiple occasions. This is basically a plain tee dressed up by way of trendy prints, which makes it an instant (but equally as comfortable) upgrade that can zhush up your most faded denim in seconds.

    reviewer wearing the faux snakeskin top

    Promising review: "If I could give this 10 stars, I would. Came across this while looking for something and I absolutely fell in love with it. I was really not expecting much when I ordered it, but when I opened it I was blown away. I have worn it many times throughout the holiday season and people come up to me and want to know who the designer is. Its really one of my favorite pieces and it is seriously very well made. You will not be disappointed." —jaguar

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes XS-XL and in six prints).

    16. A flowy tank dress made from a super soft material — so if you want to feel like you're wear pajamas in public without the likelihood of running into someone you know, I present you with the ideal solution.,

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this dress! It’s loose, lightweight but not sheer, and great for summer. I wanted something very comfortable for chasing around the kids I babysit in NYC humidity. The slits on both sides make it really easy to move around in without being to risqué. I also love the adjustable straps." —Kat Y.

    Get it from Amazon for $23.85+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 28 colors).

    17. 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.

    reviewer wearing the cognac colored 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).

    18. Track sweats perfect for the inconsistent temps we experience every false spring, when outfit choices can easily swap from parkas to tanks overnight. Reviewers swear these are crafted with magic fabric that remains cool on sweaty days *and* warm on frigid ones. Hermione? Are you responsible for this?

    Promising review: "These are probably the softest pants I've ever owned. They feel like velvet, and are unique in that they will keep me warm in chillier months but are airy and breathable enough to wear during the sticky, humid summer months. I shy away from sweatpants usually because I don't like fleece lining or warmer pants in general because they always just seem to make me TOO hot no matter the season." —Jessica

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

    19. A bodycon pencil dress that looks so. damn. chic. And while the importance of owning the perfect LBD is no secret, it's likely you've had the same one for...decades (#guilty). I believe it's time we both level up.

    reviewer wearing the black midi dress

    Promising review: "I love this dress. Simple, classy, and professional. It molds to my body in all the right ways, and it wasn't too long. It can be worn with a nice necklace to spruce it up, and flats and/or pumps. The material is also versatile enough so that it can be worn year round, all you need is a pair of stockings or tights, but the dress will work either way. I plan to order more colors." —LadyLestat

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in sizes L-5X and in 10 colors).

    20. A two-piece set I fully intend on wearing whilst padding around my 400-square foot living room, a sneaky way to trick my mind into thinking I'm yachting in the Mediterranean instead of....working from my couch. Currently adding this to my cart in anticipation of an eventual vacay.,

    Promising review: "I love this set! Every time I wear it I get compliments from friends. I also like how open and breathable it is. Texas summers are very hot and I ‘m not absolutely dying when I wear this! Very happy with the purchase." —Erika V.

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in sizes XS-XL and in 11 colors).

    21. A pullover hoodie you'll want to hide from the grubby paws of your roommates, who will want to "borrow" it daily once they run their fingers through the deliciously soft (and sustainably-sourced) MicroModal fabric.

    model wearing the gray hoodie

    Get it from MeUndies for $48 (available in sizes XS-4XL and in 10 colors).

    22. An iconic pair of ~wedgie fit~ straight jeans crafted with the perfect amount of stretch: just enough that they don't feel constrictive while the retention power remains top-notch. They're also slightly cropped so you can display your new shoes with pride.

    Melanie Aman / BuzzFeed, Levi's

    Promising review: "These are amazing everyday to every night black jeans. The cropped straight leg gives these some extra flare whether you're trying to show off a cute pair of boots or your latest sneakers. Not only do these shape your bum in the best way, the slight bit of stretch makes these extra comfy to stand, walk, sit, squat, and whatever else in without stretching out." —ilovelevis501

    Get them from Levi's for $62 (originally $89.50, available in sizes 23-32 and 11 colors).

    23. A pajama set with over 1,000 glowing reviews that scream "Target, you've done it again." This matching top and bottom is made from a buttery soft fabric so lovely, you'll be belting out a Celine Dion ballad at first wear.

    model wearing the black matching set with white piping detail

    Promising review: "I've been looking for pajamas that are comfortable and suitable for COVID lounging all day, and these fit the bill. I love these so much, I've purchased multiple pairs. I've washed them a few times and haven't run into any issues with shrinkage. To avoid them being wrinkled, as long as I manage to take them out of the dryer as soon as they're done, they're perfect." —Miranda

    Get them from Target for $21.99 (available in sizes XS-4X and in three colors).

    24. A two-piece set that is basically a gazillion options in one: Wear this as a matching ensemble, throw on the crop top with sweats, pair the bottoms with your favorite sweater, and the list goes on.

    Promising review: "The material is so soft, thick, stretchy, and comfortable. It hugs all of your curves. I like it even more because the length is on point if you're tall." —Andrea

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 11 colors).

    25. A V-neck slit dress raved about for genuinely living up to the ~maxi length~ description — if you're 5'7 and above, reviews swear that this pretty number will actually skim past your ankles.

    reviewer wearing the red patterned dress

    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).

    26. An opent fron blazer destined to save. your. life. on the frequent mornings in which your alarm doesn't go off. Roll out of bed, reach for the ponytail holder, throw this on, and et voila. Zoom meetings await.

    model wearing a black blazer

    Get it from Maurices for $29.90 (available in sizes XS-XXL).

    27. A wide-leg jumpsuit that Shakespeare would have written sonnets about (curse you, poor timing). Between the adjustable straps, flowy fabric, and gorgeous open back, this piece of clothing has pretty much turned me into a believer of love at first sight.

    Silk & Salt

    Promising review: "Seriously amazing. Feels luxurious. I’ll be exchanging mine for a larger size, but I cannot WAIT to get it! Remarkable customer service as well. Seriously love this company." —Rene V.

    Get it from Silk & Salt for $72 (originally $128, available in sizes XS-XL).

    28. A gingham wrap blouse featuring a vibrant hue to remind us that spring. has. sprung, despite cold temps that still require a parka (at least here in NYC).

    model wearing the blue and white gingham top

    Get it from Loft for $35.70 (originally $59.50, available in sizes XXS-26).

    29. A sheer mesh turtleneck if you've been wanting to hop on the tie-dye express but haven't found *the* piece yet. Well, this is what it looks like. It's even got itty bitty thumbholes that ensure the sleeves stay in place (a true headache when it comes to wearing mesh).

    model wearing the tie dye mesh top

    Get it from AFRM for $38 (available in sizes XS-XL).

    30. A one-shoulder crop top meant for great things. And when I say "meant for great things," I mean this will officially become your new go-to article of clothing when you don't know what to wear.


    Get it from Boohoo for $6.40 (originally $16, available in sizes 12-22 and in three colors).

    31. Seamed ponte knit leggings to end your quest for the perfect leggings. This is it, kiddos. These are designed with two functioning back pockets, they're super high-rise (no underwear appearances), plus they're available in short, regular, and long lengths.

    model wearing black leggings with back pocket

    FYI, these are included in Prime Wardrobe so you can give 'em a trial run if you're a member!

    Promising review: "My leggings are always tearing, or they thin-out, or they look cheap... But THESE leggings are amazing. The pleats, stitching, and REAL pockets (no annoying fake pockets!) make the pants look nice enough that I can get away with wearing them as business casual. They're also so incredibly comfortable." —J&S

    Get them from Amazon for $22.50 (available in sizes XS–XXL; in short, regular, and long lengths; and six colors).

    32. A pleated midi dress that can truly fall anywhere in the fancy-to-casual spectrum depending on the accessories you decide to fish out of your closet. Pair it with sneaks for date night, heels for that small wedding ceremony, tomayto, tomahto, you'll look fabulous.

    reviewer wearing the green belted dress

    Get it from Amazon for $37.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in five colors).

    33. A floral crop top best described as drool-worthy. The strappy back is absolutely stunning *and* adjustable, which means it'll feel custom fit to your body (and can be tightened to eliminate the need for any underwire).

    reviewer wearing the black dress

    Promising review: "This is my new go-to brand for extra-comfy, relaxed & uber soft clothing. So far every piece is well-made, very soft, and the perfect length to wear as a dress or as a tunic; you can even sleep in these, they're that comfortable. This jersey cotton is a nice, cooling fabric, perfect for the hot Texas summers. Very affordably priced, quick shipping and easy returns/exchanges." —Claire Dunway

    Get it from A.Au for $120 (available in sizes S-L).

    36. An off-shoulder maxi dress designed with the phrase wardrobe staple in mind, the kind of number you can wear to weddings and birthday dinners *or* for a stroll along a beach boardwalk.

    Promising review: "I bought this dress with the intent of wearing it once to a rehearsal dinner. Little did I know I would end up wearing it ALL summer long! It is opaque, breezy, comfortable, and fit like a glove with some movement. I got endless compliments and no one could believe I found it on Amazon! I would recommend this to anyone looking for a classy, simple, long term closet sample." —SCram

    Get it from Amazon for $19.68+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 19 colors).

    37. A plaid flannel shirt that's just inspired me to scour Airbnb for a staycation in the middle of nowhere. I can picture it already: surrounded by nature, drinking coffee in a semi-modern cabin with floor-to-ceiling windows.. all while wearing this top.

    reviewer wearing the white and blue plaid shirt

    I feel like that person from the York Peppermint Patty commercial.

    Promising review: "Such a cute flannel! Thick, great quality, well made, and definitely exceeded my expectations." —A. D. Fox

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

    38. A linen button down really evoking sweet summer memories for me. I can picture it now: the smell of salty water and sunscreen, barefoot, clad in a trendy swimsuit and this hunk of loveliness layered on top. ::checks the weather app:: ::begins to sob::

    Lilly Pulitzer

    Promising review: "I tried this on last year and opted not to get it; however, I could not stop thinking about it! This year, when I stopped at our local store and saw they had it. I purchased it immediately. This is the perfect top! You can dress up or down. It fits perfectly and is great on those humid/hot summer days! Absolutely love!" —KaJo111

    Get it from Lilly Pulitzer for $98 (available in sizes XXS-XL).

    39. An asymmetrical top with a long silhouette and dramatic slit that can take plain black leggings and make 'em look chic as heck. It's even made from a cozy jersey material that delivers on its promise of comfort *and* style.

    reviewer wearing the long red top

    Promising review: "Has to be one of my favorite blouses I have ever worn. I absolutely love the style and I want one in every color." —Cmhoddy

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXXL and in nine colors).

    40. A mini deep-V dress featuring florals and pastel colors to remind us that spring. has. sprung, despite cold temps that still require a parka (at least here in NYC). It features an open back which means you'll probably want to go sans underwire.

    Promising review: "This is my favorite piece of clothing I’ve bought on Amazon (and I’ve bought a lot!). I got the green, and it is a gorgeous seafoam type color. It doesn’t have a lot of stretch, so make sure you order the correct size. Hits right above the knee but definitely covered my backside plenty. I love this dress and will be ordering it in more colors!" —Megan Kate Haugh

    Get it from Amazon for $11.98+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 34 colors).

    model wearing the purple pajama set

    Promising review: "I needed PJs that were cool and comfortable. But I often found that the fabric of other PJs would rapidly get worn, pilled, and rough. These silky soft PJs have been going strong for months now through countless hot flashes and heat waves when it would get into the 80s in our bedroom. If you are a hot-blooded person and need to cool down, I can't recommend these PJs enough." —Margery

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in sizes S-4X and in 17 colors).
