    Model wearing the brown top

They look great with shorts in the warm weather. I get hot very easily and although the material is warmer I was super comfortable!

    reviewer wearing gold midi dress

    Promising review: "OK so to be completely honest, when I received this dress and unpacked it I was extremely disappointed. The fabric was really thin and it seems like the quality was not good at all. I had every intention of returning it. But for some reason, I decided why not? Let me go ahead and try it on and see how it fits. I could not be happier. This dress hugs your curves in the best way. Do not be discouraged at how thin the material is when you first open it. It is definitely a dress that you have to put on to truly see how amazing it is. I am soooo happy that I decided to go ahead and try it on anyway. You NEED this dress in your life. I'm ordering the other colors immediately." —Jane Domino

    Get it from Amazon for $18.88+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 12 colors).

It fits great and provides a lot of support, which is nice. The material is thick as well and I felt very comfortable in it. The bottoms are adorable and high-waisted and fit great. It runs true-to-size and the colors are vibrant. Overall, love this suit!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and in 21 colors).

    21. Double-knit fabric pants that are cleverly crafted to feel like sweatpants. In reality, their tapered leg *and* wrinkle-resistant fabric make 'em more professional than the black slacks you purchased for that internship interview back in 2001. You know the ones I'm talking about.

    model wearing the green tapered pants

    Promising review: "I bought these in black and when I received them immediately bought them in Dark Forest. The material is so nice and the color is the perfect shade of olive. The length stops at the perfect spot on my ankle, not too short but not full length, and the rise sits at a good spot on my waist. Definitely a staple for your closet." —TMarieC

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99+ (available in sizes XS-3X and in 14 colors).

    23. 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.,

    Promising review: "This outfit fits so well but doesn't feel suffocating. The pants at first looked too small but once I put them on they stretched out easily and the material is thick enough for it not to be see-through or show panty lines. The top is cozy to wear, supportive, and va-va voom if you wear it as a top on its own. It covers the back well too. I plan on ordering more colors." —Jenny

    Get it from Amazon for $31.99+ (available in sizes S-L and in seven colors).

    26. A ribbed double-V tank top best described by one word: magic.

The waist is elastic so it's comfortable to wear and easy to slip on and off, plus it defines my waist wayy better than any other high-waisted shorts I've worn." —Savalla

    Get them from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and in five colors).

    28. A tie-back bandana top perfect for wearing as-is for brunch — but le fun doesn't stop there, because you can also swish this into a headband, hair tie, and accessory for the drab black crossbody you should have retired eons ago.

    Promising review: "This skirt is so cute! It is really good quality with a good thickness that doesn’t feel too revealing. I got this in black and camel and the color is accurate for both. The length is also perfect for me as it hits slightly above mid calf, whereas most midi length skirts and dresses hit me right above the ankle. Definitely get this!" —Victoria Protacio

    Get it from Amazon for $30.99+ (available in sizes XS-XL and in three colors).

    30. Square toe ankle booties that take any outfit from drab to fab in a millisecond. It's time to chuck out the uncomfortable stilettos of "I'm dressing up" outfits past and replace them with a far more comfortable option; and one that never requires a fresh pedicure.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in sizes 4–14 and in 13 colors).

    32. A calf-length A-line dress so lovely, I actually gasped aloud and stopped scrolling. I do not pretend to understand the meaning of / live my life to the "cottagecore" aesthetic but, oh my word, this has me contemplating a life filled with forest animals and hand-picked berries.

    Get it from H&M for $49.99 (available in sizes L-4XL).

    33. A cutout back maxi described by one reviewer as "literally perfect" which means that hello and bonjour, I am absolutely adding this to my cart. I, too, would like literal perfection in my wardrobe.

    Promising review: "This dress is literally PERFECT! It’s high-class yet casual. The material is thin which is nice because it fits really well and since it’s a maxi dress, it doesn’t get too hot. The straps are not adjustable but the tie in the back allows you to make the dress as tight or as loose as you need it at the top, in order for it to fit your body perfectly... not to mention the tie makes it so cute! I also love the open back. I don’t wear a bra when I wear this dress because you’d see it though the open back, but the tie allows me to adjust it right enough that I feel supported. The slit on the side is my favorite part." —Aimee

    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

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).

    38. A one shoulder bra tank made from recycled fabric that feels like a second skin and offers sculpted support. TL;DR: It's suitable for lifting weights and a session on the treadmill, but pair it with jeans and heeled sandals? Abracadraba. It's a going out top.

    39. 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.

    reviewer wearing the black 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).

    40. A ruffled V-neck mini you'll find yourself gravitating toward for any occasion. It all lies in the power of shoe choice: Pair this with heels for tasting course dinners in which you leave starving, and sneakers for that ~aesthetic~ coffee shop you found on Instagram.,
