    Price: $329.90 (originally $498; available in sizes 4.5–11.5 and three colors)

    2. A pair of Spanx faux leather leggings for fall because they never go out of style. There's no pair of pants that transitions from day to night looks quite like these. Who needs real leather pants when you have faux?!

    Promising review: "I love this skirt so much, I wish it came in every color! The material is smooth and doesn't bunch, and the skirt is the perfect length to be modest yet cute. Tight but not too tight, it looks great under tunics as well as with regular button-ups. I would buy this skirt 100x over if I could :)" —Michal613

    13. A denim jacket with a faux shearling collar, because you need at least one of these in your closet (I have at least ten denim jackets, lol). If you're looking to make this one stand out among your denim collection even more, add some enamel pins to it.

    Promising review: "Fitting, but true to size. It is cropped but somehow long enough to pair with mid to high-rise jeans for a not-so-cropped look. Can be dressed up or down, so I highly recommend pieces like this for your closet."—LaDanaSoPretty

    Price: $11.90 (originally $19; available in XXS–XL; available in three colors)

    Promising review: "I'm not really into wearing high heels anymore, but I wanted to pick up a good basic. These pumps are amazing! The toe box is not too narrow that it's uncomfortable, the heel is a good height without being matronly, and the bottom of the shoe is rubberized, so it feels really stable. Don't hesitate to get them." —micharch

    Price: $67 (originally $99; available in 5–11 and five colors)

    19. A pair of criss-cross slides that'll be perfect for the in-between season. Another versatile pair of shoes, the amount of outfits you can pair these with is ~unreal.~ Pardon me, daydreaming about all the ways I want to wear these.

    light Blue criss-cross slides

    Price: $189.90 (originally $275; available in sizes 5–12; and in four colors)

    20. A plaid button-up because nothing says classic fall quite like this style shirt. Easy to wear on its own or over something, a button-up is a must-have basic in everyone's wardrobe.

    Promising review: "I have this shirt in the hunter scarlet and acid wash. I love them both. I've been wearing the acid wash one all summer and it has become one of my favorite things to wear. The fabric is perfect, not too thick, not too thin, and has an amazing drape to it. It looks good buttoned up or left open with a top underneath."—Kamoirae

    Price: $99.90 (originally $158; available in XXS–XXL and in four colors)
