    1. A slouchy sweater perfect for the utter confusion that is fall weather. Will it be hot by mid-day? Who knows, who cares! This piece of clothing is made from a lightweight yarn that won't make you feel sweaty a mere three minutes into your commute.

    Get it from H&M for $49.99 (available in sizes 0-19 and in four colors and petite sizes).

I just got it in the mail so I don't know how it will wear, but I can't wait to wear this on the first cold day of fall!

Just as pictured/described. I usually wear a unisex small but ordered a Medium so it would be extra roomy and look good with leggings.

    14. A plaid flannel because nothing — nothing, I tell ya! — screams "autumn" quite like a lumberjack-inspired button-up.


    Promising review: "This shirt fits great! There's no gaping between the buttons around the chest, which is great! I appreciate the fact that I can machine wash and dry this shirt, plus it's very warm and well made. A little on the pricey side for me, but definitely worth it! I suggest ordering a size up." —Valkyrie19

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in sizes XS-2X and in 12 colors).

    Outdoor Voices

    Promising review: "These are hands down my favorite pair of leggings I own. I bought them in the Graphite/Ash/Dove and absolutely love the color combination.

    Get them from Outdoor Voices for $85 (available in sizes XS-XL and in three colors).

    25. A relaxed-fit denim jacket made from the touch, the feel, the fabric of our lives — 100% cotton. If you take a page from the JoBros book and travel to the Year 3000, you'll see that people are still sporting this classic. / Via @everlane

    Get it from Madewell for $32 (available in sizes XXS-3X and in three colors).

    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!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 40 colors).

    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!" —M. D.

    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 — 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!" —Richie P.

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 30 colors).

    42. A knit cardigan you'll want to keep in your freezing cold office, where the AC seems to consider Antarctica to be weather paradise.


    Promising review: "Love this sweater! It is now a staple in my everyday wardrobe. The material is very soft and seems a little thicker than a normal cardigan, so it works great with layering for winter outfits. I have washed it a few times and it's held up, but I do hang dry my clothes so they last longer. Would like to see this cardigan in more colors!" —Evangelyne Gallegos

    Get it from Amazon for $28.95 (available in sizes S/M-M/L and in nine colors).

    Get it from Aritzia for $49.99+ (originally $138, available in sizes XXS-XL).

    Get it from Amazon for $12.65+ (available in sizes S-XL and in three colors).

    50. Drawstring wide leg pants best accessorized with a great book, a freshly-brewed cup of coffee, and your phone on "Do Not Disturb" mode. The best part about fall = not feeling as if you need to be out and about soaking up the sun all day.

    & Other Stories

    Get it from & Other Stories for $69 (originally $99, available in sizes 0-12).

    52. A waffle knit open back tee 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.


    Get it from Express for $27.93 (originally $39.90, available in sizes XXS-XL and in two colors).

    53. A cowl neck tunic for the perfect blend of comfort and versatility. This may feel like a cozy pajama top, but you'll also be able to confidently leave your house while wearing it.

    Reviewers suggest going a size up in this dress!

    Promising review: "This dress is perfection. It has just the right amount of drama for you to look fabulous. Gorgeous!" —Beth
