    The green cardigan sweater

    Promising review: "I truly love this sweater. The length covers my butt and hangs gracefully on my body. Its warm and the loom doesn't look cheap. Of course, Walmart's price is excellent! I usually pay for more expensive sweaters from plus size specialty shops. This sweater is definitely comparable. I purchased three more in different colors. Thank you Walmart for helping me look amazing at an affordable price without sacrificing quality." —Walmart Shopper

    Price: $22.67 (available in sizes 0X-4X and four colors)

    3. A simple long-sleeve shirt to add as a staple in your closet. They are perfect for layering under cozy sweaters and pulling together intricate outfits. Keep it simple or *accessorize*.

    Promising review: "LOVE these tops. They are super soft, but substantial enough to not look sloppy. They wash well with few wrinkles. The design of the edging makes the look slightly elevated compared to a plain T-shirt. I wish more colors were offered. These fit true to size for me." —Walmart Shopper

    Price: $17.97 (available in sizes 0X-5X and in nine color combinations)

    4. A casual striped long-sleeve top for the days full of errands. Need to return that sweater aunt Susan gave you for Hanukkah? Who knows maybe you'll run into your cousin in the customer service line!

    The striped shirt

    Price: $22 (available in sizes XS-XXXL and two colors)

    5. A colorful striped dress to breathe some life into that stale, dark closet of yours. Just because the world was gloomy, doesn't mean you have to be! Let's show 2021 who is boss!

    Price: $30 (available in sizes 14-28)

    6. A pair of black jeans for an absolute ~classic~ part of every outfit. I know what you're thinking, "bisshhhh jeans??" but hear me out. You order your size, slip these babies on, and then realize that these jeans are lightweight, stretchy, and fit like a glove. Then you have a deep realization that jeans were never the enemy! You just had the wrong pair!

    Black skinny jeans

    Promising review: "Being a big girl it's hard to find jeans to fit and be comfortable. Well at last I have found the perfect jeans! They are stretchy, soft and light. Nice rich black color. I now can give up wearing sweat pants all the time. Haha. They could have been an inch shorter, but with shoes on you can't tell. I have very short legs. I am very pleased with these and hope to find more in different colors." —Walmart Shopper

    Price: $19.97 (available in sizes 14P-26W and three washes/colors)

    7. An olive green jumpsuit to really make 2021 a stylish year. This piece is perfect for a business casual, outdoor casual, or couch potato casual. The only time you might doubt your choice in jumpsuit is in the stall of a public restroom, but other than that you are ~gucci~.

    Promising review: "Comfortable. Very nice fabric." —Walmart Shopper

    Price: $21 (available in sizes 14-26)

    8. A graphic tee with a tiger so you may always remember the roar in your soul. Just kidding! I know this shirt is perfect to wear with pj's, and then in the morning you can slip on your jeans, a puffer, and some booties.

    Promising review: "Vintage feel, great quality!" —Walmart Shopper

    Price: $10.50 (available in sizes XS-XL)

    9. A cranberry mock neck long-sleeve top for the days that you wanna be extra comfortable and look presentable. Nothing like a simple, one color top to really get creative with your accessories. I can imagine this with a chunky scarf for the extra cold days or with a faux fur vest and bold necklace in the spring. Don't overthink it!

    The shirt

    Promising review: "Light weight and soft fabric. Top was shipped quickly. Good deal for the money." —Walmart Shopper

    Price: $17.99 (available in sizes S-L)

    10. A pair of super soft athleisure bottoms to snuggle up in! Just because it's a new year doesn't mean everything is gonna change back to normal. If 2020 has taught us anything it is to really appreciate the simplicity of staying home, and you're gonna want these pants for that!

    The athleisure pants

    Promising review: "Comfortable, washable, true to size." —Walmart Shopper

    Price: $14.96 (available in sizes 1X-4X and two colors)

    Price: $14.98 (available in sizes 0X-5X and three colors)

    The shoes

    Promising review: "These flats look very nice on my feet and fit well. They are made with memory foam insoles which I think would be comfortable to wear at work in a business casual setting. They also would look nice with a business casual outfit for an interview or any other business casual event. They are comfortable, made well and look nice." —Walmart Shopper

    Price: $14.97 (available in sizes 6-12 and in wide options)

    14. A pair of black overalls for your everyday use. These ~bebes~ (insert Moira Rose's voice) are a wardrobe essential. If you have never owned a pair of overalls before, this is your moment! What are you waiting for?!

    The black overalls

    Promising review: "Super cute, distressed, wide legged, heavy denim (not the thin jegging type denim) i am very happy with them since it was an online order and I couldn't touch them. I can't say much on size since i ordered them intentionally too large for me for my want of being lounge/comfy/loose." —Walmart Shopper

    Price: $19.88 (available in sizes 1X-4X)

    15. A sherpa-lined denim jacket to pair with literally ~anything~. I mean I can't think of anything that wouldn't pair nicely with this absolute gem of a jacket!

    Price: $25 (available in sizes 14-28)

    17. An orange pleated midi skirt to dress up for any occasion. Skirts are the coolest way to say "Yes, I dressed up and I give a heck," without actually giving a heck. Ever wondered what it's like to wear no pants in public? Wonder no more! Wear a skirt!

    The orange skirt

    Promising review: "Beautiful skirt, right color for fall and all seasons. Will wear with sandals now, booties and hat in fall. Tights for winter. Great skirt." —Walmart Shopper

    Price: $24 (available in sizes 14-28)

    Price: $28 (available in sizes 6-10 and two colors)

    19. A pair of flare-legged jeans to let the new year know you mean business. Pair them with your favorite chucks and graphic tee or go for a more dressed up vibe with some platform pumps and flowy top. Either way, you will feel unstoppable in these high rise, denim beauties.

    Price: $24.94 (available in sizes 6-18 and in three colors with petite and long options)

    21. A long-sleeve varsity top for the days where comfort is a priority. This super soft top is perfect for the low-key days when you might need that extra lil' hug. Cozy, cute, and hella huggable!

    Price: $11.96 (available in sizes XS-XXXL and in four colors)

    22. A pair of classic black leggings for any time, any place. If you are anything like me then you have a random pile of black leggings that you wear constantly! These will have you searching through the pile to find your favorite pair of black leggings! "No babe, they are not all the same!" —me

    The black leggings

    Promising review: "I always wear leggings around the house, these are a nice T-Shirt feeling fabric (like the $5-10 typical Walmart T-Shirt fabric you might find). I have super soft leggings and they're nice and all but I actually prefer these because they feel sort of like a medium weight fabric, not super soft but not like those workout leggings meant to hold you in place." —Walmart Shopper

    Price: $11 (available in sizes 1X-5X)

    23. A boyfriend blazer for the days that need the extra professional *UMPF*! This blazer has a cute little scrunched sleeve detail that basically says, "Don't mess with me, I am on a mission!"

    A model posing outside wearing the blazer over a dress

    Promising review: "I was worried that blazer was going to be tight around the arms (thats always my problem), but it fit great! I ordered my regular size of M. Love the scrunch sleeves. The blazer is longer than my other blazers. It hits upper thigh. There is no button closure, which first made me nervous. I was afraid it was going to gape but it hangs nicely." —Walmart Shopper

    Price: $40 (available in sizes XS-XXXL and in five colors)

    24. A gray mock neck sweater to tough out the rest of the winter in. This is another basic essential for your 2021 wardrobe. It's the simple understated items that we get the most use out of! A sweater like this one can be a sort of chameleon in your closet. How would you style this classic piece?

    Price: $15 (available in sizes XS-3XL and in five colors)

    25. A white peplum hem shirt for when the sun begins to stay in the sky a little longer. Can you imagine slipping this on, throwing your hair in a bun, turning on your favorite morning tunes, and dancing around while sipping coffee? I just wanna twirl around and feel my shirt flowing with me. Don't ever underestimate the power of a good solo dance party!

    Price: $17 (available in sizes 14-28)

    A model wearing the sports bra

    Promising review: "This bra is amazing! Actually keeps everything where it should be while chasing my very active toddler. Zipper is handy for nursing without having any squeaky clasps.
