    Promising review: "This jacket is no joke! It fits perfectly, hits at the waistline perfectly, the material is how it's described, and for once, the jacket looks EXACTLY like the picture in person.

    If you're between sizes, it's recommended that you size down!

    Promising review: "100+ reviews and it selling out on each launch sort of speaks for itself. This is just the perfect dress, for literally anybody! There is not a single day that goes by that I'm wearing one and I don't get a compliment from someone. You can dress them up or dress them down. You can nap in them, then put some heels on and wear it out to dinner! They are so easy to wear. As a person who can't stand wearing a lot of clothes, these are essential to my wardrobe. You cannot go wrong with this dress. Every drop I say I'm going to order something different and I just wind up with more Ellies. You think you shouldn't order another one because you already have one or two? ORDER IT! In all the colors and prints! As for sizing, remember to size down." —Karina

    Get it from Hill House for $150 (available in sizes XXS–XXL and 22 colors/prints — not all styles available in all sizes). 

    6. A perky set of flower hair claws that are as adorable as they are functional. Reviewers with thick hair say they have great hold, and the pretty color options will make even the most basic updos look IG-worthy.

    Promising review: "I'm obsessed! I saw these online and fell in love. The colors are beautiful. (And even moreso in person!!!) My hair is super thick and these clips held it up all day! Definitely recommend. Such a good price for these!" —Sav May

    Get a set of 12 from Amazon for $12.99

    7. A pair of handmade leather huarache sandals so stunning, you'll wonder why you kept wearing worn-out flip-flops year after year. The platform design means you'll get a little extra height, but way more comfortably than wearing an actual heel.

    8. A TikTok-famous corset bustier that won't only make you look cool, its sleeveless design will also help you feel cool on warmer spring days. The only question is — which gorgeous color (or seven) do you choose?!

    Promising review: "I purchased this corset after watching a TikTok video of another mid-sized girl talking about how great it is. It did not disappoint! It fits nicely. I got lots of compliments on it! Someone else pointed out to me that the fabric looks expensive and just like another bustier listed on PrettyLittleThings for over twice the price." —Elizabeth

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in sizes 00–20 and 21 colors). 

    9. A silky slip dress you'll buy because of its ~dreamy~ color and keep because it's a super versatile, one-and-done outfit. After all, what else can you wear to a spring wedding one day and pair with sneaks and a baseball cap the next?

    It is hand-wash only, but it's a small price to pay for all of the wear you'll get out of it!

    Promising review: "The perfect dress. It is extremely difficult to find simple, elegant, comfortable dresses that you can dress up or down when you’re plus size. This dress made me feel beautiful, which is not something I’ve ever said about a dress before. It felt effortlessly elegant and has room to move without feeling baggy. I want it in every color!" —Avbeee

    Get it from Anthropologie for $120 (available in standard and petite sizes XXS–XL, plus sizes 1X–3X, and five colors/prints — not all styles available in all sizes).

    10. An oversized poplin button-down that comes in the *loveliest* pastels — that's what spring clothing is all about right?! The looser fit keeps things relaxed, but in a stylish, put-together way.

    Promising review: "Yes, yes, and yes! I’ve been on the lookout for a versatile white blouse for layering or for a relaxed, timeless style with jeans, and this top accomplishes everything I’ve asked of it. It runs a little oversized, but that’s what I was going for. The quality is great, as the material feels strong and crisp, but still delicate and style-forward. Love this piece." —LGIGI

    Get it from Madewell for $85 (available in sizes XXS–4X and eight colors — not all colors available in all sizes). 

    11. A pack of stretchy camis, which are perfect for layering under blazers and cardigans on those cooler spring days. Plus, the straps are conveniently adjustable!

    Promising review: "I was skeptical about these camisoles. I wear camis under my shirts every day and usually go for the more spandex-style ones. I am so glad I gave these a try. They are completely different than camis I normally buy. They’re more cotton than spandex and don’t cling to your body the same way. However, I’ve found that I love this model. They’re so soft and comfortable. I have fibromyalgia and have problems with uncomfortable clothes so these ended up being amazing. They’re the right length to wear under shirts and they’re not too loose so they don’t get all bunched up. And having them be cotton-based, I actually find fewer problems with my shirts riding up over them. I highly recommend these. I hope to purchase more colors of these." —Nicole D

    Get a pack of four from Amazon for $24.99 (available in sizes S–XL and 13 color combos).

    12. And a pack of ribbed tank bodysuits that'll keep you from having to re-tuck your shirt all day. They look so cute with jeans and shorts, and reviewers say they're really comfortable.

    Promising review: "Perfect basics! Love these tanks! It’s not a thong like a lot of these bodysuit tanks. Super comfy and I wear these almost every day! Definitely buying more!" —SMae

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in sizes S–L and 15 color combos). 

    13. A stylish yet affordable jogger set, which will likely become your spring uniform on cooler days when you wish you could stay in your PJs. Spoiler alert: With this comfy getup, you'll feel like you never left bed!

    Get it from Amazon for $42.97 (available in sizes S–XL and in 23 styles).

    14. A classic pair of Levi's high-waisted bootcut jeans, because you can never have too many of these essential pants. Wear 'em with everything from your spring tennies to heels.

    Psst: Reviewers do say these run a bit long, but they look really cute cuffed, like in the first photo. Plus, you can wear 'em with all of your platforms!

    Promising review: "I normally don’t write reviews, but these jeans fit so well and are the perfect high-rise! I instantly ordered another pair after trying these on. They are a little snug but not uncomfortable. They sit right above my belly button. I ordered my normal size and the length is perfect for me since I have longer legs." —Haley

    Get them from Amazon for $31.73+ (available in sizes 22–39 and five styles — not all styles available in all sizes).
