    Promising review: "It's a great set. The shorts fit as expected. It's really high quality for the price. The matching tank top is small fitting and I suggest sizing up the matching cardigan for a trendy look. I bought both colors but get more compliments on the heather stlyle." —Buy Everything On Amazon

    Get them from Amazon for $20.31+ for the shorts (available in sizes XXS–3X and in two colors), $17.91 for the tank (available in sizes XXS–3X and in two colors), and $26.83 for the cardigan (available in sizes XXS–3X and in two colors).

    4. A long floral chiffon cardigan so you can wear it when you open up the window to feel the breeze on a cool summer day.,

    Promising review: "LOVE! The colors are vibrant and light enough to be cool during the summer and heavy enough to where it doesn't feel cheap. I love the slit it has in the side because it gives it a different look. I am 5'9 and it is right above my knees. For the price I am shocked as to how beautiful they are. I agree with everyone else to buy a size up. The length will not change but can be a bit tighter in the shoulder area." —Andrea

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes S—5X and 35 prints/styles).

    5. A plain shirt dress that's perfect for when you have to get to work but don't feel like getting out of the bed. This feels as soft and comfy and pajamas but looks polished enough to hop on a team meeting with.

    Promising review: "This dress is like a soft T-shirt, and the colors on the blue and white tie-dye were beautiful and vibrant. A bit more blue than pictured, which is good, and consistent with other reviews. The sleeves were nice and stretchy and weren’t too tight at all around the opening. It honestly feels as comfy as a nightgown. I can’t wait to wear it more, I tried it on and it was so comfy I left it on to run errands! It’s great with flat sandals, and I just ordered another color bc I love it so much. Say hello to my new summer uniform!" —Lauren L.

    Reviewer wearing white top

    Promising review: "This top is SO cute! It fits well and is a really lovely fabric that feels much more expensive than it is. I have a large bust, and although the fabric doesn’t have much give, it doesn’t feel too tight. The bell sleeves are fashionable and the price point can’t be beat! I highly recommend." —Caitlin Brewer

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in sizes S—XXL and in 29 colors).

    Promising review: "I bought the 1X and it fits like it was made for me! I wore the dress to work with a pair of brown leather knee-high boots, and received MANY compliments. The fabric is a good quality. It's thick but still a jersey material. The turtleneck keeps its integrity all day. I hate when you wear a turtleneck and it gets droopy; this piece holds its shape. This dress is a MUST-buy." —DeeDee

    Get it from Amazon for $31.20 (available in sizes 1X–7X)

    17. A lace sleeveless tank top to add a bit of flair to the original tee. Throw it on when your schedule doesn't require anything fancy but you don't want to be too casual, either.

    Reviewer wearing gray shirt

    Promising review: "This is a cute shirt! It is soft and has a nice stretch to it so you don't feel constricted. Overall, the shirt is very comfortable. It is not sheer at all. It seems true to size. It will be a great shirt for summer. It is a nice addition to my summer wardrobe!" —JR

    Klassy Network

    Klassy Network is a woman-owned small business and fashion brand that is most known for their Brami tops. They also sell blouses, bottoms, swimwear, and eyewear.

    *I* wish that every top I owned was a Brami top so I could trash all of my traditional bras. I own a few of their shirts in different styles and they are absolutely amazing! Somehow the shirts provide the support of a bra without you having to actually wear a bra. It feels extremely comfortable. The fabric is soft and very well made. I truly do wish that there was a way to apply this fabulous non-bra bra technology to every single blouse.

    Promising review: "I was super skeptical because I have a larger chest and always gave to wear a bra, but this is the most amazing top ever! I absolutely love it and will for SURE be buying more styles and colors!" —Katie

    Get it from Klassy Network for $39.99 (available in sizes XS—3XL and five sizes).

    Reviewer wearing shorts, sandals, and white top

    Promising review: "If you’re on the fence, buy it! I bought the white, it is ridiculously adorable. The arms are very long which is great. I plan to wear this on our summer vacation to the beach. This can be worn as a beach cover with shorts or as an outfit for later." —M. Hadley

    Get it from Amazon for $31.88+ (available in sizes S—XL and 11 colors).

    22. Overalls that are spacious with deep pockets, which allow you the freedom to move, bend, and stretch without feeling squeezed in because of the loose fit.

    Reviewer wearing dark overalls

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in sizes S–XXL and four colors).

    24. A comfy casual T-shirt that will be the foundation of 99% of your summer outfits because it's the clothing equivalent of water — aka it will take on the style of whatever else you are wearing. Dress it down with jeans/leggings or up with a blazer and heels because this classic item definitely knows how to play its part.

    Reviewer wearing striped crew neck tee

    Promising review: "Can I tell you how much I HATE wearing an undershirt on a hot day?! It’s so frustrating to look to look for shirts in the store and have them all be translucent, too tight, too baggy, or have words on them. I saw these and figured I could send them back if I hated them. Well, I LOVE THEM. They are soft, they aren’t see through, and they fit amazingly well. I get complimented on them every time I wear them. Can’t beat the price either. I can even wear the white ones without an undershirt. I have several colors and will buy more." —KH

    Get it from Amazon for $16.90+ (available in sizes XS—XXL and in 29 colors).

    25. A v-neck spaghetti strap crop top which provides comfort and support without any wires and can be paired with shorts, jeans, or a skirt. (Psst, go snatch these up in every available hue before I do).

    Reviewer wearing black spaghetti strap top

    Promising review: "I love this top! It's perfect by its self or under a shirt. I ordered a medium! It fits snugly, just the right amount to feel secure without a bra. I was concerned about the straps since they are not adjustable but they are a sturdy material and have some stretch to them. I’m definitely going to order this in more colors!" —Mama Mia

    Get it from Amazon for $9.81+ (available in sizes XS—XL and 37 colors).
