    Promising review: "This is so soft and so comfortable. It’s the first bodysuit I’ve bought and I don’t know why I haven’t purchased these sooner; it’s amazing. I was worried about the snaps being uncomfortable, but you don’t even know they’re there. I also worried for the price it might be see-through but it’s not at all. I’ll probably be buying this in every color." —MW

    Reviewer wearing the brown plaid coat

    Promising review: "WOW! This blazer is incredible! It is not stiff like business blazers; it is actually really soft and moves easily.

    Promising review: "This sweater is everything! I love cozy, oversized sweaters that can be good for different weather. I love the huge pockets that held my phone and how well it went with my girls night out outfit. I normally don’t write reviews but looks are a big deal for me when it comes to clothes. It also fit as expected. It wasn’t too thick or too thin but just right. It’s also not itchy feeling like some sweaters of this type can be so that was a big plus. Comfort is a huge deal. I may get one in cream and black as well since they can go with multiple types of outfits. 🙌🏾" —Antonia Gates

    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 $18.99+ (available in sizes S–XXXL and in eight colors).

    13. A short-sleeved jumpsuit made with — wait for it — pockets! This ~one and done~ ensemble is great for people who WFH and need to slip on something for video calls but who still want to be comfy for working from the couch after.,

    Promising review: "I love this jumper. Super comfy, perfect fit. The waist is a string tie (not elastic!), which I really like. Elastic waistbands can sometimes be too tight even on comfortable clothes so the string is great. The ankles and wrists are stretchy with the perfect amount of 'give' so I can get my feet and hands in and out easily. The fabric is lightweight and easy to move, dance, and yoga in. It's a V-neck so I wear a cami, sports top, or halter underneath. And pockets!" —Debbie

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in sizes S–XXL and 21 styles including short and long sleeves).

    14. A pair of FP Movement balloon pants for a get-up-and-go look that can easily be dressed up with a few rad accessories and switch of the shoes.

    Promising review: "Can I start by saying I absolutely love moto style jackets, but most of the jackets I've bought don't exactly fit me right and I end up looking like a box. This jacket is flawless! The fabric is beautifully soft while still maintaining its structure. I am OBSESSED. I own the suede styles in cheetah, black, and green, and I plan to buy the dark red, too. This is a gorgeous piece, I only wish that it came in even more colors." —MJ

    Get it from Amazon for $35.17+ (available in sizes XS–XL and in 12 colors).

    17. A wool skirt because there are few things better than a wool skirt, a perfect latte, and a brisk stroll along the promenade.,

    Promising review: "I am enthralled with this skirt. I had been wanting the skirt for a while, and going back and forth on whether it would be good quality and if I should buy it. The outer skirt is incredibly soft with deep pockets! I can't even say how ecstatic I am over these pockets. I bought the skirt knowing they'd have them, but the depth of them is very thrilling. You could fit an iPhone 11 in this pocket! I tried not to have high expectations of this skirt because I've bought similar things in the past and have been very let down. This exceeded my normal expectations for these skirts I look forward to actually styling it." —Aliah

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and in 31 colors).

    18. A long-sleeve hooded romper for the days when you just want to ~hop out the bed, and turn your swag on~.

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and in 21 colors).

    20. A linen dress with rolled up sleeves that, yes, looks like the dress a preschool teacher would wear on a Disney sitcom, but that also should be the reason you buy it. Because if a teacher can be comfy in it running around with tiny tots then you can be comfy WFH.,

    FYI, if you have Amazon Prime Wardrobe you can give this a spin before you buy it!

    Promising review: "This dress is terrific! Comfortable and nicely made, it is exactly as I had hoped. The upper chest, shoulders, etc fits very true to size, the rest from chest down is roomy and baggy, just as shown in the picture. I bought my usual size and it fit fine. DO NOT go down a size or it will not fit in the arms and chest. I do wish it came in a bright red or aqua. I also purchased one for my niece when she visits. It arrived the next day, packed well and easy to open and enjoy. Try’ll enjoy this leisure dress." —Denise L.Meyers

    Get it from Amazon $39.95 (available in sizes S–3XL and seven colors).

    21. A two-piece set reviewers say is so cute and comfy, they purchased the set in multiple colors. When you find something this cozy, it's always good to have a spare.,

    FYI, if you have Amazon Prime Wardrobe you can give this a spin before you buy it!

    Promising review: "For those of you who like to go to Walmart in your PJs and flannel pants, order this set! You will still be comfy but look great.

    23. A midi skirt complete with two options: floral or button-down with pockets. Either skirt is such a cute option, so don't be surprised if you see your roomie sashaying in one of them on their Instagram story.,

    Promising review: "I love this skirt! I purchased it to wear casually with Vans and cute T-shirts, and it looks so trendy and stylish on me. I have a toddler so I was hoping to have something that I could run around in, and I love the flow of this skirt. It does not wrinkle, and it has pockets! Also, it is not see through, so it's been a staple piece all spring/summer long. It has held up well in the wash and I love to dress it up/ fits at my waist and hits me just above my ankles" —Claudia Cardenas

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and 21 colors).

I love how you can dress them up or down and the bow and pockets add such a nice touch (I love pockets in anything). I already have the olive color in my cart and will be buying them VERY soon. They fit perfectly and are lose/tight in all the right places. I love wearing these to work as they are comfy and don't constrict anything. Highly recommend!" —Natasha

    Promising review: "I love the fit of this dress!! The material is soft. It feels light and airy and has a lot of flow and movement. The pockets are fun and the little trim of lace adds just enough flair. I wore it to a wedding reception with white wedge shoes. I got a ton of compliments. I feel like the dress is very versatile. It can be dressed up or down. I am going to order it in a few more colors." —JJ
