    Unless otherwise specified, all sizes in this post are listed in women's.

    1. A striped chunky cardigan you can throw on over jeans, wide-leg trousers, or a solid midi skirt. If you need any outfit inspo, a quick look through Harry Styles' fashion archive should also help.


    Get it from Madewell for $110 (available in sizes XXS–XXL).

    2. A faux leather jacket that, as Justin Theroux has taught me, can be worn with your choice of black jeans, black tees, and black boots. Or, you know, whatever else you usually wear.,

    Promising review: "This has to be THE BEST jacket EVER! Does not look cheap. The vegan leather looks like real worn-in leather. It feels soft and the zipper placements and cut of the jacket, is so perfect. I wear it with everything! I can’t believe the price too! If you are searching for that perfect moto jacket, STOP. Actually don’t buy it, I want to be the only one wearing it!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $38.88+ (available in sizes S–XL and in five colors).

    3. A one-and-done twill jumpsuit with a self-tie belt and legs you can cuff to show off your coolest kicks. (Just imagine it with high-top Nike Blazers 😍).

    Alex Mill

    Get it from Alex Mill for $198 (available in sizes XS–XXL and in four colors).

    4. A satin slip dress you can layer over a graphic tee, under a leather jacket or chunky sweater, or just wear on its own for a Carrie Bradshaw moment.

    Nasty Gal

    Get it from Nasty Gal for $36 (originally $68; available in sizes 0–12).

    5. A matching ruched top and skirt you won't even have to think twice about because literally all you have to add is shoes. (If that has you scratching your head, I think a low block heel would look phenom.)

    Abercrombie & Fitch

    Get it from Abercrombie & Fitch for $49+ (top and skirt are sold separately; available in sizes XXS–XL and two colors/patterns).

    6. Or a two-piece sweatsuit ideal both for lounging around the house and making your weekly Target/TJ Maxx/World Market run.,

    Promising review: "Absolutely love this set! Very comfortable and stylish. The fabric is soft and feels good on the skin. I like that I can wear it casually with sneakers and I can also dress it up with heels." —@ag_iroro

    Get it from Amazon for $33.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and in 13 colors/patterns).

    7. A pair of button-fly black pants with a super high waist that pairs *perfectly* with crop tops, slinky tanks, and open-front cardigans.


    Promising review: "The material is very soft and the fit is great. Super comfortable and I would recommend these to anyone who is looking at them and is on the fence." —Rkaps

    Get them from Express for $70 (available in sizes 0–14).

    8. A metallic shirt dress that comes with an opaque slip so you don't have to worry about finding one that fits. If you've had to do that before, you know what a pain it can be.

    Forever 21

    Promising review: "I’ve actually owned this dress twice now. I misplaced the first one, which I owned three or four years ago. I loved this dress and was so sad when it was gone. But now, it’s back and I bought it and I still love it. I wear a size 18, so I bought a 2X. It’s such a great dress. Get one!" —Katherine M.

    Get it from Forever 21 for $15.99 (originally $17.99; available in sizes 0X–3X and in two colors).

    9. A longline wool coat you can throw on over anything and immediately look like an incognito celeb — especially if you throw sunglasses and a mask (plz!) into the mix.

    Free People

    Promising review: "This fit exactly the way I wanted. I think the description for this is accurate. Does run a little big — in the best way. Not a fitted style, which is perfect for layering. Looks sophisticated while being relaxed and comfy. Looooooveee!" —lovenuvia

    Get it from Free People for $228 (available in sizes XS–XL and in four colors).

    10. A faux-leather mini skirt that basically pairs with any old top in your closet. A chunky knit? ✔️ A sheer blouse? ✔️ A crisp white tee? ✔️ ✔️


    Get it from Zara for $35.90 (available in sizes XXS–XXL and in two colors).

    11. A hand-knit mohair cardigan with gorgeous oversized sleeves that are really the only thing people will be paying attention to. Accompanying skirt, shirt, overalls, who cares — those cozy cuffs are stealing the show!


    The cardigan comes from San Diego-based Etsy shop Max Melody. If you're in the market for more hand-knit pieces, they also sell a gorgeous collection of wool pullovers, slouchy beanies, and dramatic capelets.

    Promising review: "GORGEOUS! Beyond, beyond gorgeous sweater, beautifully hand-knit, amazing material, very nice seller, and super fast shipping. 15/10 would recommend!!!" —Liv Reiter

    Get it from Max Melody on Etsy for $98 (available in sizes S/M–L/XL and in seven colors).

    12. A denim Universal Standard shirt dress that calls for very little effort on your part. Basically: to roll up the sleeves or to not roll up the sleeves? That is the [only] question.

    Universal Standard

    Universal Standard is a women-founded brand that creates inclusive designs in sizes 00 through 40. During the design process, each piece is fit on a model of every size so you'll get a more reliable, comfortable cut than garments created via a static formula.

    Promising review: "This is my go-to Monday dress. With heels and a scarf it looks great for a business casual relaxed start to the week. On the weekends, I pair it with leggings and sneakers to run a million errands. It's comfortable and easy to care for. I actually have two in blue and two in black I love it so much! Runs baggie, so don't hesitate to go down a size, especially if you're on the smaller side of your size level." —Jenni

    Get it from Universal Standard for $98 (available in sizes 00-0–38-40 and in two colors).

    13. A solid or striped bodysuit with a square neckline you can tuck under high-waisted pants, flowy skirts, or even joggers. This way, you won't have to tuck (and retuck) your shirt every two minutes.

    Whimsy + Row

    Whimsy + Row is a woman-founded sustainable clothing brand that produces their limited-run designs in LA. They use up-cycled and eco-friendly fabrics and ensure that all of their workers are paid a fair wage.

    Get it from Whimsy + Row for $68 (available in sizes XS–XL and in three colors/patterns).

    14. A neutral ribbed crop top so simple, you can zero in on a minimal aesthetic or go maximalist with your wildest accessories and shoes.,

    Promising review: "LOVE this top. I just needed a really lightweight, goes-with-everything tank. It’s not too low but not too high. It’s perfect!! I’m gonna get another one." —JP

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and in 37 colors).

    15. A pair of patterned palazzo pants you can pull on over any tank top or tee and look perfectly pulled together.,

    Promising review: "These are my favorite pants at the moment! I've never received so many compliments on a pair of pants before and I love how comfortable they are! I didn't think to take photos until after I got home from work, but I wore black pointed toe pumps and a sheer, long sleeve, open-front cardigan. I also brought black flats to change into and both looked nice with these pants. They are just like pictured in photos and are thin without being see-through! They can be easily dressed up or down, and would work well on all body types. You need these pants in your life!!!"" —YoMommaRhonda

    Get them from Amazon for $19.98+ (available in sizes S–XXL and in 13 colors/patterns).

    16. A simple graphic tee adorned with the silhouette of some very high-profile ladies like AOC, Ayanna Pressley, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib (aka four-sixths of The Squad).

    The white T-shirt which has the silhouette of nine women in congress

    Otherwild is a queer-identified woman-owned store that collabs with/showcases a number of independent artists and designers. Some of their products also support the Anotherwild Fund — "a grant for Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) who are LGBTQIA and work within the following disciplines: retail/store curation; herbalism; natural/ethical personal care products; candle-making, perfumery, incense; apparel and accessory design; textile design; ceramics; lo/zero waste goods; tarot and occult."

    Get it from Otherwild for $36 (available in sizes XS–2XL).

    17. A pair of trendy wide-leg trousers that I happen to wear every single day (🤫). Things I regularly wear them with: plain old tees, striped turtlenecks, knit sweaters, and lots and lots of chore coats.


    I have these pants in three colors and during the before time (when I actually went to an office every day to work) I wore them 24/7. They pair well with all tops and shoes and they hold their shape while still offering a bit of stretch. I love, love, love them and can't wait for the day I can dust them off and take 'em back out on the town.

    Promising review: "I’ve honestly been searching my whole life for that one style of pants that I can buy over and over again. At last I’ve found them! These pants are so comfortable, stylish and they fit like a glove. Needless to say, I have them in three colors. I’ll continue buying these year after year. *P.S. I have these in two different sizes. I recommend sizing down one size for a more fitted feel and staying true to size for a more relaxed fit. Both are great." —KLMO

    Get them from Everlane for $72 (available in sizes 00–16 in short and regular and in four colors).

    18. A fuzzy sherpa jacket ready to keep you warm no matter what you're wearing underneath. Teddy coats really don't have to adhere to any fashion "rules," and, btw, neither do you!,

    Promising review: "I LOVE this jacket! It’s unbelievably warm for what it is, and it goes with everything. Or maybe I just love it so much that I think it does... but either way, I have this jacket in two colors and will be buying my third. I’ve had the two jackets over a year now and they’re in great shape after many washes!" —Lauren

    Get it from Amazon for $27.91 (available in sizes S–3XL and in 21 colors/patterns).

    19. A striped boatneck tee that's as classic as garments come. Create a timeless fit by topping it off with your go-to blazer, field jacket, or denim.

    J. Crew

    Promising review: "You couldn't get more classic J.Crew than this. Goes with every kind of bottom you can think of, can be dressed up or down, always chic. The fit's great — perfect at the chest and then skims about an inch away from the tummy area in my usual size small. Love the face-framing boatneck and the always classy three-quarter sleeves too." —FoxyCloset

    Get it from J. Crew for $39.50 (available in sizes XXS–3XL).

    20. A chunky oversized sweater guaranteed to keep you snug as a bug in a rug even though you're a human who usually exists in Spanx faux-leather leggings.,

    Promising review: "To say I am obsessed is an understatement!!! Everywhere I go, I get compliments on this sweater! It’s so soft an not too thick, so it’s perfect for warmer places because I can get that fall feeling without sweating. It’s a beautiful orange and looks more expensive in person than it is! Now I want to order all the colors LOL." —Stephanie Mason

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and in 19 colors/patterns).

    21. A denim jacket that I won't even waste your time explaining. You and I both KNOW there's nothing more versatile., Amazon

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this jacket!!! It goes with just about everything, and is comfortable. I went up a size after reading some of the reviews, and that worked out well for me. The length of the jacket is also a nice feature, it hits right about the hip, and is not a midriff. I'm really glad I ordered this jacket, it's so cute, and I know it will last a lifetime, Levi's makes the best denim wear as far as I'm concerned." —Jo Packer

    Get it from Amazon for $64.50 available in sizes XS–XL and plus 1X–4X and in 14 colors).

    22. A button-down blouse with dramatic poet sleeves that add so much visual interest, you really don't need to do much on bottom.


    Promising review: "I love the drape of this pretty blouse. The fabric is soft and it is sewn well at shoulders and sleeves. I find myself pulling it from my closet often. I feel it is a good value. I would buy it again! Good Threads has been a friend to me a few times!" —Erbansun

    Get it from Amazon for $30 (available in sizes XS–XXL and in six colors/prints).

    23. A flowy pleated skirt you can dress up with heels or booties or down with sneakers or sandals. Plus, it has something I refuse to shut up about: pockets. 💃,

    Promising review: "This skirts gets me many compliments whenever I wear it, you can dress it up or down and always end up looking vibrant and fun. Also it doesn’t lose its pleating when you wash it or get wrinkles at all, also the elastic is super stretchy for your heavy eating days!" —nikou

    Get it from Amazon for $26.89+ (available in sizes S–XXL and in eight colors/patterns).

    24. A pair of Levi's Wedgie fit jeans which will show off your best ~asset~ no matter what you throw on up top. Since they come in a bunch of classic washes, you might also want to pick up multiples. 😌


    Promising review: "I bought these jeans last month and I can’t stop wearing them. The denim is a hearty thick kind that will wear well over time. And the fit is literally perfect." —Dylan

    Get them from Levi's for $98 (available in sizes 23–32, lengths 26 and 28, and six washes).

    25. A ruffled swing dress that looks as good with a sunhat and sandals as it does tights and biker boots. With 33 different colors and patterns, you're sure to find a fit for every season.,

    Promising review: "Adorable! Easy to make fancy or casual or work appropriate. Great with leggings and flats or sandals but will be great in the fall with boots or booties, too. Flowy and cute. A little tight in the bust with a bra on so my wanna wear a compression cami or size up." —SME85

    Get it from Amazon for $21.23+ (available in sizes S–XXL and in 33 colors/patterns).

    26. A casual blazer with a classic collar and lapel you can layer over a button up for an interview or over a band tee for the photo shoot you scheduled with your BFF, 'cause you need new pics for LinkedIn and your dating profile.

    Promising review: "I LOVE this blazer! Great quality and got many compliments the first day I wore it when I rolled up the sleeves, paired it with a pair of distressed skinny jeans, a deep V-neck white tee, and pointed flats. Very cute boyfriend blazer. I’m buying one in every color available!" —Sarah Compton

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and in 11 colors/patterns).

    27. A cozy sweater dress that, as you can see below, looks fan-freaking-tastic with thigh-high boots but can also be belted or worn with tights. (Unpopular opinion: I LOVE wearing tights.),

    Promising review: "I’ve had several people ask where I got it. It’s so warm and soft, I could literally sleep in it. It’s easy to dress down with leggings or belt it and throw on some tights and knee-high boots and you’re date-ready." —Marci Fagan

    29. A neutral cropped tee that works just like any regular ol' tee but with ✨a little extra spice ✨in the form of a twist.,

    Promising review: "Cute, versatile crop top that can go with jeans or workout leggings. If you're into the crop style, definitely a must have basic for your wardrobe. I purchased this in a couple colors. Fit as expected and didn't shrink a ton in the dryer." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and in 44 colors/prints).

    30. A breezy linen top with the same effortless cool factor as your linen duvet. The slightly boxy fit features side slits you can show off with a quick French tuck.

    Get it from Breezy Linen on Etsy for $49.90 (available in sizes XS–XXL).

    31. A pair of reliable black skinny jeans so easy to style, you can basically get dressed in the dark.


    Promising review: "I have plenty of curves and these jeans fit all of them perfectly. The higher the waist, the better and these hit the spot. Also belt loops and real pockets. Ugh, who said perfection doesn't exist? The legs are actually skinny! No gap. They go great with booties, flats, Vans, and everything in between. Very happy with these and even looking at other colors (but let's be real, I'll probably just buy a second pair of black)." —Mary

    Get them from Amazon for $14.84+ (available in sizes 24–34 Short, Regular, and Long and Plus 36–46).

    32. And a lantern sleeve sweater with a loose, oversized fit that makes it both exceptionally comfy and versatile.,

    Promising review: "This top has proved to be one of the most versatile pieces I’ve recently purchased — it can be dressed up or down and the material is the right thickness for those transitional months where you’re kind of between seasons. I’ve worn it with a tweed mini skirt and boots, work pants, jeans, yoga pants, you name it — it’s probs been done. In accord with continued wear, this top also launders beautifully. It isn’t knit like a sweater, but it’s heavier than a t-shirt if that makes sense. It’s not super soft but that isn’t ever a deal breaker for me as it still is comfortable and breathable. I chose the black, but I’m eyeing the green ❇️🖤💚" —Blondism

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and in three colors).
