    1. A ruffled chiffon blouse with a high neck, dramatic lantern sleeves, and a *bit* of see-through action. Wear it with a nude bra if you're all about the peek-a-boo effect and if not, just slip a cami on underneath!

    Promising review: "Oh my goodness!!! So cute and it fits perfectly. Not too tight and not too loose. Can’t believe I found this on Amazon and not in a boutique." —Amber Hollars

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and in nine patterns).

    2. 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 nine washes).

    3. A loose button down tank suitable for ~blistering~ hot summer days (::: I cry :::)  as well as brisk fall days when layered under a cardigan or coatigan (🤞 those never go out of style). No need to pack it away between seasons!

    Promising review: "So as with most Amazon clothes, I ordered a size up.  This top is such a staple, though — you need it. It can be worn in any season because it’s great for layering. The material is nice as well. Don’t skip it — just get it!" —Sarah Ryan

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and in 10 colors).

    4. A rib-knit skirt you can wear at your natural waist or hike up for a shorter silhouette. It's like getting two skirts in one!

    Promising review: "Love this skirt so much, I bought it in four colors. All are true to the photo. The slit is perfect making it easy to walk, but not too high. I wear the slit in the back. On one of the skirts the tag was on the wrong side and the other three it was where the slit was, so I know you can wear it either way. The material is the perfect thickness for all-year wear and it's not see-through. These are a great staple to have." —Lauren Winn

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and in 21 colors).

    5. A pair of high-waisted pleated pants with bow detailing at the waist and ankles as well as functional pockets. Good news is if you really fall in love with them, they're available in 33 (!) colors.

    Promising review: "Absolutely perfect! I ordered them in black for work pants but after getting them in I ordered them in multiple other colors because they are now my go to pants for going to work and going out 10/10 would recommend. I waited to make this review to be sure I could afford to buy all the colors I wanted first because I know this product will TAKE OFF when people try them on!" —Addison Stick

    Get them from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and in 36 colors).

    6. A versatile button-front LBD that pairs with your braided chunky heels *just* as well as your platform Doc Martens. (Just don't forget the socks — maybe two pairs to be safe.)

    Promising review: "Wow I honestly had low expectations, but love this skirt! It became a staple in my closet and I’m not one to wear colors or many prints. So silky and smooth, so comfy. Got so many compliments. The band doesn’t dig in and doesn’t look awkward. I can’t wait to get it in different colors." —Daria Z.

    Get it from Amazon for $20.21+ (available in sizes XXS—3X and in 13 colors and patterns).

    8. A scoop-neck bodysuit you can slip on under high-waisted pants, flowy skirts, or even joggers. This way, you won't have to tuck (and retuck) your shirt every two minutes.

    Get it from Lacausa for $58 (available in sizes XS–XL and in two colors). 

    9. A pair of darted palazzo pants with extra-wide legs that allow for ample airflow. It's basically like wearing a dress, but you don't have to worry about accidentally flashing anyone if a gust of wind catches you by surprise.

    Promising review: "These pants as so comfortable and flowy! I stepped outside of my usual skinny jean outfit to try this style — and I never want to take them off! They are great casual pants for work, and can be dressed up for the evening with a fancy shirt and heels. They are as comfortable as pajamas, without looking like it :)." —gretchen nash

    Get them from Amazon for $24.28+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and 22 colors and patterns).

    10. A classic denim jacket that requires zero explaining. I'll take a TYIA though since you'll be wearing it everyday.

    Get it from Petal & Pup for $89.95 (available in sizes S–L).

    Promising review: "Super cute and uniquely stylish mini skirt. It's made with a double lining so the skirt has a nice high-quality look to it. The outer material is made from a super soft velour-type material and the tassels add the right amount of character. Perfect length and style for any season or occasion." —VIP Anastasia

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and in 21 colors).

    12. A one-and-done sleeveless jumpsuit you can cuff to show off your coolest kicks, be they platform Tevas or high-top Nike Blazers 😍.

    Promising review: "These tops are really cute. They have a loose fit, but aren't too baggy. I can see myself wearing these all seasons. They also go great with whatever bottom you want to pair it with: dress slacks, skirts, or jeans. I ordered a medium which is my usual size." —LauraLynn128

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and in 26 colors/prints).

    Get it from Kin by Kristine for $72.95 (available in sizes 14/16–26). 

    15. A tiger tee because you love graphic tops but it was really embarrassing that one time you were wearing a Ramones shirt and someone asked if you liked "Blitzkrieg Bop" and you froze before saying "yeahhhh... I love it!" (Don't worry, this definitely didn't happen to me 🙃.)

    Promising review: "The most comfortable T-shirt I own!! I wish they made more prints in this material cause I love it that much! It’s so soft it fits great! It’s thick but not uncomfortably thick! And it fits true to size!" —Kaitlyn Kleveno

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99 (available in sizes S–XL and in 16 colors/prints).

    16. A square-neck top with cinched puff sleeves sure to make the transition from work to weekend (or weeknight drinks 👀 ) easy peasy. ::: Dusts off hands :::

    Promising review: "I really love this top! It’s cute and trendy. If you want a more snug fit, I suggest sizing down one. Also the fabric is really nice — different from what you usually get. Overall, this is a great addition to my wardrobe and would recommend!" —Frosty1

    Get it from Target for $19.99 (available in sizes X–4X and in two colors). 

    17. A pullover puff-sleeve sweater you can pair with jeans, wide-leg pants, or a midi skirt depending on the temperature and your mood.

    Get it from Amazon for $25.98+ (available in sizes S–XL and in 18 colors).

    18. 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 Mango for $29.99 (originally $59.99).

    19. An off-the-shoulder satin bodysuit so stunning, no one will even think twice if they see you wearing it in eight different colors. Go on with your bad self.

    Promising review: "I love this bodysuit! I got so many compliments and no one believed it was from Amazon! It runs true to size and the blue was absolutely STUNNING! Four of my friends bought it right after I sent them the link! I don’t think it could be any more gorgeous and I’m excited to wear it again!!" —Kierra Scott

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in sizes XS—3XL and 15 colors/prints).

    20. An oversized faux leather shirt jacket you can style just as easily as a jean jacket. Button it up or leave it open if you had time to match what you're wearing underneath.

    Promising review: "I’m glad I found this piece because it’s about to become a spring/fall staple. The leather is extremely soft which I love. It’s oversized, just as a disclaimer. The interior is soft and slightly sweater-like which is why it works for the chilly months." —Laila

    Get it from Amazon for $53.16 (available in sizes XXS–3XL).

    21. A drapey Madewell blouse I *guarantee* French tucks like no other. Plus, the oversized fit means you can slip it on over your head without having to button it and then re-button it when you realize you were off by one.

    Madewell, Madewell

    Promising review: "This is one of my favorite styles from Madewell. I have this shirt in every color I could get my hands on and wear them daily. I even have a couple in black. The shirt is so comfortable, but is nice enough to wear to business meetings. I love that it isn't fitted. My only complaint — and it's a small one — is that I wish the shirt were a tad bit longer in the front." —Britt

    Get it from Madewell for $79.50 (available in sizes XXS–3X and in three colors).

    22. A collared baby doll blouse with so many design details — pleating! puff sleeves! ruffled lapels! buttons! — that you barely even have to accessorize.

    Urban Outfitters

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $59 (available in sizes XS–XL and in four colors). 

    23. 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 $10.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and in 44 colors/prints).

    24. A high-waisted midi skirt with a leg slit you can pop your thigh out of for a lil' sun (or tuck it away under tights when it's chilly). Just make sure you lather up the sunscreen if you're prone to burning.

    Promising review: "I was a bit worried this skirt might be see-through or made cheaply, but it’s amazing! The fabric is lightweight fabric but perfect. Great length. Beautiful colors! I’ve worn it twice now. Dressed it up one night for an upscale get together at a high end restaurant one night... wore it another day with a tank and flip-flops for a super casual look... I got nonstop compliments both times. Waiting to see how it washes up, but love it! Holds its shape too, no wrinkling or bunching at the waist as the day goes on." —Jennifer Ulrich

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and in 22 colors/prints).

    25. 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

    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).

    26. satin spaghetti strap cami sure to shine ~almost~ as bright as you in your next selfie.

    Get them from Express for $40 (originally $80; available in sizes 00–14). 

    28. A pair of corduroy overalls with adjustable button straps that make me want to run through a field of wildflowers and then dramatically collapse in the shade of a tree. TBH I would ~never~ do that though because I have a very real fear of grass stains.

    Lela Silk / Etsy

    Lela Silk is a woman-owned Hanoi, Vietnam-based shop from Tu Anh Nguyen. All of her silk and linen designs are sewn in house by a team of local artisans. 

    Promising review: "This is easily my favorite clothing piece I've purchased from Etsy. More expensive? Yes. Worth it? Absolutely! No one has said anything about the buttons but can I just say how adorable they are? So cute! It has pockets which is always the best. It fits great because you can size it specifically to your body (with the adjustable buttons); you don't have to wear a bra and still can feel comfortable. I think like everyone else I wore it straight out of the package and basically didn't want to take it off. I got the aqua and I will say its more of a sea foam green in my opinion but that wasn't an issue because it still looks amazing on me! So positives: Weight, fit, buttons, and pockets." —Lili

    Get it from Lela Silk on Etsy for $106+ (available in sizes XXS–XXL as well as custom sizing — just add your measurements at checkout — and in two fabrics and 36 colors). 

    30. A pair of shorts with an elastic paperbag waist that won't restrict you — so go ahead an add that extra guac to your burrito.

    Promising review: "As someone who doesn’t like denim shorts, I was excited to try these. The material looks much more expensive and they are double-lined. I sized up to a large and am happy I did. I would rather have them loose than too tight. Great for all seasons!" —Pat Manning

    Get them from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL).

    31. A textured midi smock dress in a classic floral print that won't soon go out of style — which is fantastic, considering the high-quality piece will last you years to come.

    Promising review: "I love this dress. I've worn it to work twice now and its the right amount of breezy for summer heat but covered up enough for the office. Looks super cute with heels or chunky boots. It is a thicker material than I expected but not in a way that makes me overheat, it just feels like high-quality fabric. It's super cute." —Asos reviewer

    Get it from Asos for $50 (available in sizes 2–14). 

    32. A pair of
