    Let's get ready in five seconds, flat.

    1. An essential cropped tank that has most likely been blessed by a fairy godmother. Why? This takes your basic cami and goes *poof.* An instantly chic upgrade is yours for the taking due to this high-neck silhouette.

    2. An oversized shacket because, other than the obvious breakfast choice (apple cider donuts) and crunchy leaves, there's another fall classic you'll want to indulge in this season: plaid. This staple is ideal for spooky season but is also warm enough for winter layer wear.

    3. A tiered maxi that has 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.

    4. A half-zip pullover to celebrate the arrival of *cue trumpets and horns* sweater season. Available in a ton of neutral hues, pair this with jeans, leggings, or slacks for a comfy but put-together look.

    5. Compression shorts available in three lengths, with even the ~shortest~ version ensuring that your assets won't be on full display with every step you take. Throw in the fact that these have pockets and voila, dressing just got a whole lot easier.

    6. 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.

    7. A V-neck ribbed sweater with the word versatility written all over it in invisible ink. This wardrobe basic can be worn to anything, with anything — and it's great for the sightly chilly days of fall and full-blown freezing temps of winter.

    8. An open-front cardigan that'll have you thinking "hark the herald" because angels do sing — at last, you've found the perfect layer to keep you warm and trendy. One that will never clash with an outfit.

    9. A drawstring romper with all the comfort of the pajama set you've been wearing to bed since 1893 — except it's not fuzzy fleece rubber duck pajamas and, ergo, a *lot* more chic.

    10. A short slouchy cardigan that's practically begging to be added to your wardrobe. This easy breezy layer is made from a cozy knit that is equal portions comfortable and stylish — simply drape it over anything in your wardrobe for a kick of warmth.

    11. A maxi dress featuring the most important element of fashion design: pockets. Throw in super soft fabric and you've got yourself a recipe for perfection.

    12. An open-front blazer that you can consider step one in building out a versatile wardrobe. It's the crème de la crème of closet staples due to its witchy ability in making any ensemble (from band tees to ripped denim) look put together in an instant.

    13. High-waisted shorts for a cool, effortless vibe made exponentially better by the following feature: pockets. Someone contact Alanis Morissette and let her know we've got her ideal warm weather staple.

    14. A batwing sweater complete with an asymmetrical hem that you'll want to pair with leggings, combat boots, and a trendy fedora for a look that says "Why yes, this is something you have saved to a Pinterest board."

    15. A stylish matching set that screams "farmers market chic" and I don't know why because I have not been to a farmers market in like, three years. But this set! This set will be my motivation!

    16. A seamless set featuring a ribbed knit material best described as "divine." Reviewers swear that the high-waisted leggings are squat-proof but "don't feel suffocating," which I'm pretty sure is allllll the proof we need that sorcery exists.

    17. Baggy overalls (with pockets!) for anyone who detests having to scrounge up a matching top and bottom, plus wants to look peak Instagram-worthy in their loungewear — all you'll have to do is slip this on over a bralette *or* a sleeved tee.

    18. A puff sleeve midi that reviewers describe as a total compliment magnet.

    19. An off-shoulder top because while we talk about the importance of the LBD, I'd argue that the little black top is just as important — perhaps even more important.

    20. A faux-shearling moto jacket that looks like it would cost upward of $7 trillion (*giggles nervously* right on budget) but thankfully, it does not. Consider this the cold weather equivalent of a blazer: You'll look ultra put together when you slip this on over any outfit.

    21. A simple satiny button-up with the ability to make light-wash jeans look chic. The secret sauce is in the fabric, which delivers a luxe ensemble that only looks expensive.

    22. A ribbed V-neck top that's practically *begging* to be worn with high-waisted sweats, thanks to its cropped silhouette. Looking très chic and exerting no effort to get there?! A dream, honestly.

    23. A romper comfy enough for errands and hikes but *also* swanky enough for dinner and drinks. I've never leaned into a style trend so quickly. Bless the trend gods for making this easy 'fit so popular again.

    24. A silky-and-stretchy cowl neck cami that'll answer your pleading prayers for *the* quintessential going out top. This is it, pets! Wear this for happy hour specials, slightly ritzy brunches, aaaand to Zoom meetings layered with a blazer. Perfection exists.

    25. A crewneck plain white tee about to bust into its own rendition of "Hey There Delilah." Just kidding. On a serious note, this hunk of lightweight Madewell cotton is super comfortable *and* goes with any bottom.

    26. A belted tunic dress that you can consider multiple outfits in one purchase due to how versatile it is. Wear it by its lonesome *or* add leggings and a leather vest for a look that, well, looks completely new.

    27. A sleeveless swing mini for impromptu wine nights with le pals, grocery store runs, fancier dinners (simply add in some heels), et cetera. Versatility is this dress' strongest suit.

    28. An off-shoulder jumpsuit made from a breathable, lightweight fabric that won't cling to your upper thighs the second the temps hit above 50. Annnd a drawstring waist for an hourglass silhouette is the cherry on top of a perfect wardrobe sundae.

    29. A high-waisted palazzo trouser for a wardrobe staple that's great for team meetings, happy hours, and pretty much everything else in between. Now repeat after me: chic.
